Thunderbolts #112

Or – “Because Salieri Demanded It, And I Don’t Want To Wind Up Like Mozart…” The Marvel Universe is a huge tapestry with hundreds of superhumans that we never see anymore, characters who seem to have just dropped off the face of the Earth, usually after quitting a team book or losing their “next big thing” status. For all it’s faults, at least Civil War tried to reflect that, with the likes of Prodigy, Typeface, and Thunderclap getting involved in the conflic (if only briefly), showing that the events affect EVERYONE, even those who are no longer active. Last issue’s…

Spider-Man III Game Footage

The Spider-Man III video game takes you below the streets of New York as you battle Venom, Sandman, and more. Looks pretty awesome to me, although I really wonder if subway tunnels and sewers are that big. embedPlayer(626918980)

Second Print Varient Features Zombie Hitler

Dynamite Entertainment sent us a peek at the cover of the variant cover to the second printing of Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness. The cover is a zombified homage to the cover of Captain America #1 and is done by Arthur Suydam. Marvel Zombies vs. The Army of Darkness is a Five-Issue Limited Series that serves as a direct prequel to last year’s hit comic book phenomenon Marvel Zombies. In Marvel Zombie tradition, each issue of the series features a “zombified” cover by painter Arthur Suydam (this time incorporating Ash from Army of Darkness into each “new” classic image),…

Amazing New Marvel Theme Park Coming!

There’s already Marvel Adventure Island, but how about a whole theme park devoted to the comic franchise? I know, I was pretty excited about it too… that is until I found out I have to make sure my passport is still up to date when the park opens in 2011 in the United Arab Emirates (Dubai). Over $1 billion is going into this project using some of the most creative minds from around the globe. David Maisel, Chairman of Marvel Studios and a member of the Office of the Chief Executive, Marvel Entertainment, said, “We are launching a long term…

Iron Man Set Update

Jon Favreau posted a quick message over at his MySpace page letting everyone know what is up with Iron Man. We are done with the first week of photography. I am happy to report that the ten months of preparation allowed the extremely challenging first week of photography to come off without a hitch. The look is fantastic and the performances are great as well. Downey was definitely the right choice. I’m looking forward to getting out of the “cave.” The first few weeks of shooting are spent, somewhat in sequence, establishing Stark’s captivity. It sets the table tonally for…

Fantastic Four #543

Or – “When Is A Surprise Ending NOT A Surprise?” There’s a theory that circulates around my comic shop about the Fantastic Four, that states that people misunderstand the roles of the members. Contrary to popular assumption, says our thesis, Sue is NOT the heart of the Fantastic Four. That’s Ben Grimm, the member most likely to respond on an emotional level. Likewise, Ben is not the steel in the FF’s backbone, it’s Sue that truly acts as the team’s fist, the spine that will not break, even when everything has gone to pot and a big purple fat guy…

X-Factor #16

Or – “Multiple Maaan, Multiple Maaan, Doin’ The Things A Multiple Caaan…” It’s no coincidence that, in addition to titling this particular book, “x-factor” refers to that certain something that raises a particular person, place or thing above the average and mundane. Every time I feel like I’ve gotten the whole story on the characters, they throw me a curve and I have to start all over. From Guido’s sudden murderous turn (he was brainwashed) to the Siryn/M/Madrox triangle (they weren’t) to the strange vibe surrounding “House of M” plot device Layla Miller (she’s more than she seems, but we…

Marvel Zombies Vs. Army of Darkness #1 (of 5)

Or – “Who’s The King, Baby? Whaddaya mean ‘Kirby?’ ” There are some concepts that are just flat-out too cool to be ignored. The original premise of “Marvel Zombies,” to be honest, is NOT one of them. It sounds like Marvel just cashing in on the usual crazes. “Walking Dead” sells for Image, so we get the writer of that to bang out a one-off series featuring zombie versions of Marvel heroes. What they DIDN’T count on was the off-kilter humor of Kirkman, and the way that he translated his long-time love of Marvel’s finest into beautiful character moments, distilling…

But quitting is easier said than done. Marvel sent us a whopping seven page preview for you to check out.
