Marvel has announced that Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips are teaming once again to bring Criminal back to comic book pages. Tracy Lawless, the most popular character in the series history, takes center stage in Criminal: The Sinners #1 as made men turn up dead all over the city! But when criminals need justice, Tracyâ€™s their bestâ€”and onlyâ€”hope! But just whoâ€™s behind these mob-style hits on made men? â€œDoing INCOGNITO was just the break that Sean and I needed to recharge our crime batteries.Â Now weâ€™re back with more grimy goodness, and hopefully all the new readers we picked up
Marvel has released a sneak peek of the upcoming Vengeance of the Moon Knight #1 as Moon Knight takes to the streets to bring his own manner of justice to Norman Osborn.
I know more than a few Major Spoilerites will be heading over to MattyCollector.com to order the Legion of Super-Heroes figures done in the Justice League Unlimited style.Â The 4-pack goes on sale on May 15, and while no pre-order or pricing information has been posted, the Justice League Unlimited Gotham City Criminals Action Figure 4-Pack sold for $30.00.
This ski mask has to be one of the most disturbing bits of clothing I’ve seen, and it can be yours for the low low price of $16.99.Â While this certainly looks creepy, criminals are going to have a field day with this kind of ski mask as it makes it even harder to identify the perp. via Amazon
If you are wondering if newly anointed President Obama is soft on crime, just take a look at this freakin’ awesome action figure of number 44 as he fights Darth Vader, slashes the criminals with his dual katanas, and woos the ladies with his panty-dropping vocals. This is a Japanese figure, and while the main site is delivering up a classic 404 error when you click on the page (no doubt due to the throngs of devotees who are trying to buy three mint condition figures at the same time), it is a sure bet this figure will sell out
Don’t you just hate it when you have all the qualifications for a job, yet it goes to someone else?Â That’s what happens to Renee Tempete, who should be the new Galaxy Girl, but instead the role goes to a hottie with no powers at all.Â This leads to the three issue mini-series from Image Comics Shadowline imprint by Kat Cahill and Seth Damoose. Based on skill alone, Renee Tempete should be the new Galaxy Girl. Instead, a buxom blonde with no actual powers holds the title. As events unfold, Renee struggles not only against monsters, criminals and giant robots,
Xingu Films has announced it has acquired the rights to American Reaper, an upcoming graphic novel by Pat Mills and Clint Langley for Repeat Offenders. The story is set in a future where identity theft leads to victims having their minds erased and replaced by those of the elderly rich seeking a second youth or by criminals and terrorists with more sinister motives. A team of special agents, known as Reapers, are formed to track down and terminate those responsible. Too bad this is all fiction, as I would love a team of comandos to track down and punish identity
In last weekâ€™s review of Robin #174, I wondered what was going to happen with the Tim/Stephanie/Robin/Spoiler relationship now that Stephanie has returned to Gotham City from her sojourn in Africa. The Robin/Spoiler special released this past week from DC Comics clears up some of those unanswered questions.
The New York Times has an article covering The Dark Knight movie, and has four new photos to boot. In a political context this would politely be called an â€œunintended consequence.â€ (Gotham as Baghdad, anyone?) Mr. Nolan doesnâ€™t deny the overtones. â€œAs we looked through the comics, there was this fascinating idea that Batmanâ€™s presence in Gotham actually attracts criminals to Gotham, attracts lunacy,â€ he said. â€œWhen youâ€™re dealing with questionable notions like people taking the law into their own hands, you have to really ask, where does that lead? Thatâ€™s what makes the character so dark, because he expresses
