Posted by March 9, 2011 Comment


We’ll be adding tv/film entries from the right hand column in the trending topics. I think I heard Brendon promise we’d have yet another big movie scoop soon if I did this, so let’s hold him to that.

These are today’s most-read comic stories.

The Big Debate Over The Wasp’s Bottom

Over at the Statue Marvels forum, professional genre statue designers are posting their designs off to fans and getting instant feedback.

Set Visits For Spider-Man Vs Superman XXX

That’s right folks, on the back of shooting Spider-Man XXX, Vivid Video are also filming their first superhero parody brand crossover, Spider-Man Vs Superman XXX. Marvel and DC may not get along anymore, and are not interested in crossovers of any kind – so where the official brand refuses to go, the porn parody steps in.

Jonathan Hickman recently revealed that SHIELD had a long and rich history going back thousands of years into the Marvel Universe.



The John Romita Deposition For The Kirby Family Vs Marvel Lawsuit

Professor X, Magneto Loom Large On New X-Men First Class Posters

A pair of stark new X-Men: First Class posters will hit theaters this weekend, and the images hit the movie’s official facebook page earlier tonite. There’s some mixed feelings out there already about the design on these but they do grab your attention.

Look! It’s Havok In X-Men: First Class
