James Robinson will no longer be writing Earth 2 after issue #16. He announced the leave on Twitter yesterday, along with an announcement of his full departure from DC’s writing stable. His words exactly.
So as of today I am leaving Earth 2 with Issue #16. It’s been a blast. Man, it’s a lovely day. Think I’ll take Rex to the beach.
Yes, this also means I’m no longer working at DC Comics. Best wishes and regards to Dan, Geoff and everyone.
Personally, I was thoroughly enjoying Earth 2 and am sad to see him go, but this at least feels a bit more amicable than most of the recent DC partings. Issue #16 will be in stores in October.
A Promo short for the new Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., with Fred Tatasciore, the man voicing the Hulk, has been released by Marvel and Disney XD. It doesn’t show us much, but the premise behind the series seems a bit more uniquely entertaining than I would have originally assumed. Take the jump for the video.
Guillermo del Toro’s next film, Pacific Rim, is just around the corner (or a couple months out yet) and I know I’m seeing it as soon as I can. If you are still unsure though, the new trailer, which is just beyond the jump, gives some more to the story and should convince you that you want to watch it.
Michael Bay cast Megan Fox as April O’Neil in the upcoming Turtles reboot, much to the fans’ chagrin. And while we aren’t expecting much to come of this, the first set photo has been released, and honestly, she doesn’t look half bad, but you can take the jump and see for yourself.
A new Scribblenauts game is coming out this fall, and since Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is making it, and interesting new feature will be added, the DC Universe. Take the jump for the official trailer and a bit more info.
Sing a song of geekery,
A pocket full of die
Imaginations running wild
There’s nothing we won’t try..
(Sung like Sing a Song of Sixpence)
Geeky nursery rhymes. Something I never knew I always wanted. Seriously, check out more about this super creative project after the jump.
Everyone has a creative endeavor of some sort, and everyone gets writer’s block on occasion, no matter how good they are. How would you like a simple, randomized way of helping to get past that block, whatever you may be doing? If you’d like that, then take the jump and find out what it is.
You all enjoy a good live-play podcast right? What am I saying? Of course you do. Why else would you be listening to me on Critical HIt? Well, since we know you enjoy this type of thing, we here at Major Spoilers felt we should point out a way you can help in getting another one going.
Nerd’s Domain is a group of people quite like what we have here. When I went to GenCon last summer, one of the more fulfilling and entertaining things I did there was meet Matt Quiett, the man in charge over there, and a number of the other people that are going to be doing this podcast (I’m really bad with names sometimes, so I apologize for not knowing which). They are a fun group of people with the gaming experience needed to create something awesome. As well as being a likable group, they are going to be running in the Call of Cthulu 6th Edition and (at least initially) will be running the adventure Masks of Nyarlathotep, allowing you all to see something truly different from what we do here.
So take a look at what they’re doing over on Kickstarter and see if you can’t help get another good live-play going.
Well the submissions have been gone through. Wizards has gone through the 7,000+ entries and, through a rigorous process, has managed to narrow it down to eight different choices. So what are we looking at? Well, take the jump and find out.
