Friday Trending Topics: Hobbits, Supergods, And The Mighty

Looks like the BC forum crew pretty much has The Mighty figured out (Maybe. But don’t look before you guess yourself). But these promo-puzzles, both real and accidental, are fun, and have been pretty successful in recent times, so let’s hope the pubs start upping the ante with something really, really tough.

Wednesday Trending Topics: SPOILERS

This is a much more interesting trend day than it appears at first glance. Reviews and commentary on Comic Day releases always do well, but they rarely grab the top spots — until today. Meaning people are really engaged in what’s coming out right now, meaning Flashpoint and Fear Itself, to a great extent.  Interesting […]

Fear Itself #4 Vs Flashpoint #3 – Wednesday Comics Review

Two books. Two big company event crossovers. Very different stories. But quite a bit of confusion.

Which means finding a very different Superman indeed. I […]

Aaron and Mike from A Comic Shop in Florida namedrop Charlie Adlard to the hilt, before diving into tomorrow’s comics, in their sweaty sweaty hands. They are all over Flashpoint #3 and the spinoffs before moving onto Fear Itself #4 and those spinoffs with Captain America putting on the costume. Big week. And then Moon […]

The Death Of The Incredible Hulk

We love a little mindless speculation here at Bleeding Cool Towers, looking at the comic in front of us, their plans, the current social climate and speculating ahead based on all that. It’s that kind of thinking that has Bleeding Cool expecting a black man under the Spider-Man suit when Ultimate Comics Spider-Man relaunches in […]

Flashpoint #1 Sells Less Than Fear Itself #2

The Diamond Comics Distributors data for the month of May has been released. How has holding the line helped DC? What about the crossovers? Well, as the headline points out, the first issue of DC’s big event crossover comic couldn’t beat even the second issue of Marvel’s. Both have gone to second printings, so the […]

Colossus Relaunch: Getting Cyttoraked For Fear Itself

When Bleeding Cool first ran the image, this member of The Worthy was labelled Juggernaut. And it sure looked it. But it was otherwise teased as Colossus taking the helmet.
