So here we go with the second installment of the Shadow from Beyond Time story line.Â If you thought the first issue didnâ€™t have enough of the fighty-fighty, and the laughy-laughy, then youâ€™re going to be pleased as Punch (although without the murder and infanticide), as Robo and Charles Fort attempt to bring down the monster Lovecraft with a roadster and a couple of lightning guns.
Sony Online Entertainment has updated its press site with more images from the upcoming DC Universe Online game – the MMORPG that has more than this reporter excited about the launch date.Â The latest teaser features the undead Goliath Solomon Grundy taking on all comers!
If you thought the G.I. Joe movie looked ridiculous, just wait until you see the first trailer for the Steve Oedekerk Stretch Armstrong movie.Â Stretch Armstrong?Â I remember that guy!
“This is a new well from which to draw intellectual properties that bring a pre-awareness and nostalgia,” Schneir said. “They are drawing filmmakers who find a real emotional connection and resonance, and this is proving to be a compelling driver for motion pictures.”
The toy from the 70′s also featured a monster, a dog, and an evil twin brother.Â The last time a Stretch Armstrong movie tried to get made, it was with Danny DeVito and Jackie Chan.Â No release date or stars have been attached.
This past week finally saw the end of one of the most god-awful series DC has ever produced.Â Surprisingly, Iâ€™m not talking about Final Crisis or Batman RIP, rather the horrid horror/superhero mini-series Superman & Batman vs. Vampires & Werewolves.
STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS gives audiences a different look at Separatist leader Count Dooku, and also introduces a new set of villains in â€œDooku Captured,â€ an all-new episode of the hit animated series directed by Jesse Yeh, premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT Friday, Jan. 2, on Cartoon Network.
The episode finds Anakin and Obi-Wan attempting to capture Dooku, only to discover the Sith Lord has already been kidnapped by intergalactic pirates.
In this day and age of low press runs and mega-comic-corps blasting out tons of issues, it’s good to see the little guy get their moment in the sun.Â Hays Entertainment has announced Leviticus Cross #1 sold out at the distributor level, and went so far as to claim the second issue is outselling the first.
“Every retailer received a preview of all five issues,” explains Leviticus Cross creator Seth Hays. “Having the entire series completed was something we wanted to guarantee the store owners and the fans. We’re happy that our efforts are paying off and that the readers are enjoying the book.”
Issue #2 drops in January, but you can take the jump and see a sneak peek today.
There have been a plethora of comic book titles that have featured some of our favorite monsters.Â You can’t throw a goth without hitting a werewolf, vampire, or zombie comic in your local comic shop.Â Are there too many?Â Has the glut lead to monster burn out?
One of my favorite all-time sci-fi movies is Forbidden Planet.Â Not only is it the first appearance of Robbie the Robot, but it takes Shakespeare’s The Tempest in a whole different direction.Â If you ever wondered what Forbidden Planet would look like if it were remade today, you will hopefully have your answer as J. Michael Straczynski has been hired to pen Joel Silver’s remake.
Released in 1956, “Planet” told the tale of an expedition sent from Earth to check on a colony of scientists on a far-off planet. They find two members, a man who has found alien technology that doubled his intellect, Dr. Morbius, and his daughter, both of whom have managed to survive an unseen monster roaming the planet.
This is one I can’t wait to see remade.Â What JMS did for Babylon 5 and his numerous comic titles mean this can only end one way – awesome.
Who is the Blue Marvel?Â Why he’s the famous hero from the 1960s, and its time for him to come out of retirement to save the Avengers.Â Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel #1.
