“I don’t know why… but I find myself attracted to you…” Iron Man and Magneto. One, a man of science, the other a mutant touched by magic. Both have stared down the gods. No wonder they find a certain… something between them. Marvel continue their yaoi comic event running this year, looking at the love […]
Earlier this year, Bleeding Cool told you how Marvel was to launch a $5 comic store voucher for anyone who bought a Marvel digital comic, for 99 cents or more. While many are worried about how digital comics will affect comic shops, this at least is an attempt to get new digital readers to see […]
In last week’s address to Comic Book Resources by Axel Alonso, much attention was focussed on his spoiling of the upcoming issue of Avengers Academy. Oh and he didn’t mention God in any shape or form. He did however say; “Battle Scar’s Sergeant Marcus Johnson, who is a character you’ll definitely want to keep your […]
VALKYRIE: So here we here. SIN: Here we are. VALKYRIE: Two chicks, just hanging out in the weapons store. SIN: I do like your hammer. VALKYRIE: Thanks, I picked it up for next to nothing. And anyway, what about your gun? SIN: Which one? VALKYRIE: The one you’re holding across your shoulder. I have to […]
And she’s back in the mohawk too. The new Astonishing X-Men team, starting in November, from Marvel. Why am I suddenly getting flashbacks to Uncanny X-Men #201?
There’s an October solicitation for a Fantastic Four poster by Joe Quesada that is blacked out in the Marvel Previews. Which is really handy for shops thinking about ordering it. Well, I think this is it. The cover to Fantastic Four #600, presumably. And it was blanked out for a reason.
The new issue of Fear Itself gives us a look at things to come. Thor being given a lift home after a heavy night’s mead drinking, a bridge and Iron Man mixing up a potion with Merlin. But will it be alcoholic? And then we have a look at some other tie ins… Comics courtesy […]
This is the giveaway poster for the new John Carter series from Marvel. Um. You know, I’m sure the Princess is the person John Carter is rescuing, or getting involved with in some fashion. But with the skirt, that headline looks more like it’s describing John Carter… John Carter, Executive Transvestive Of Mars?
Marvel do love a silhouette don’t they? They really do, playing a game of who’s-in-this-issue-who’s-not and we all play along like giddy schoolchildren. Well I know I do. That’s Magneto at the back, right?
You can only go to so many panels at San Diego Comic Con. I’ve already written how I was the only comics reporter to cover new of the Uglies manga, because I was in the panel before the DCU panel, setting up. So I missed the IDW Transformers panel. Where Simon Furman announced that, after […]
At the San Diego Comic Con, David Gabriel from Marvel said that they had had to remove a Sarah Palin appearance from one of the one hundred and fifty Amazing Spider-Man #666 Retailer variants (see them all here).

Published in USA Today, the current go-to-spot for publisher friendly mass media comics coverage, a preview of the first issue of X-Men Schism #1 by Jason Aaron and Carlos Pacheco. And it all gets rather political…
When I attended New York Comic Con before people would choose to pay my way, I used to stay with a friend in Manhattan a fair few blocks up from the show. And so I’d walk through Hell’s Kitchen several times a day. I knew it was Hell’s Kitchen because it has plaqeus up telling […]
Apparently there have been petitions. Well, it appears they have been successful. HeroClix is to make a Squirrel Girl figure for people to, well, click with.
Some readers have been curious as to just how the current Ultimate arc, The Death Of Spider-Man will, in anyway, involve, well, the death of Spider-Man as both titles Ultimate Comics Spider-Man and Ultimate Comics Avengers Vs New Ultimates, don’t seem to have that much of a connection. I understand that both books, Ultimate Comics […]
Marvel artist David LaFuente will be taking over art duties on an upcoming New Mutants arc, a Fear Itself tie in. The book will focus on Dani Moonstar in her Valkyrie role, and Asgardian goddess Hela. X-Men editor Nick Lowe, at Kapow, said that David LaFuente apparently does the best Warlock ever…
Jock, with Frank Quitely’s cucumber there. So, London is having a bit of a San Diegan heat wave. What better time to hold a mini-San Diego Comic Con than London that Kerpow? Except it isn’t and it wasn’t. Oh there was that moment in the hotel bar where the movie stars walked past the window […]
Horror and ci-fi writer China Miéville’s already had one Swamp Thing series commissioned then spiked after the first five issues were written. But he’s been at a lot of comic conventions lately. would he have any luck on the other side of Broadway? Seems not. He reprints his rejected pitch to another company on his […]
