The Jim Shooter Files: Too Much Continuity and Ongoing Storylines

Last month’s MCM London Comic Con had Jim Shooter as a guest, and at his table were a number of folders, binders, full of memos, sketches, artwork from his long career at DC, Marvel, Valiant and more. He graciously allowed Bleeding Cool to take shots of a few of them, but these are just the […]

Will Marvel Phase 4 End in A Secret War?

Will Marvel Phase 4 End in Secret Wars for the MCU?

With Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel both heading into box office history and Marvel’s Hall H presentation at San Diego Comicon just weeks away (presumably), the Marvel Cinematic Universe rumor mill is about to go into overdrive regarding what’s coming up in Marvel Phase 4.  Part of the fun of these rumors is thinking about […]

Iron Man 10 Years Later: Ole Shellhead’s Top 10 Action Figures!

Iron Man was released 10 years ago?!? That is unbelievable to me. While the movies may have taken forever to get in on the armor action, that has never been the case for toys! Tony’s various armors (and the man himself) have seen quite a few pieces of plastic produced in their honor over the […]

Black Panther Ultimates #1 cover by Kenneth Rocafort

5 Days of Black Panther, Day 5: New Avengers, Ultimates, and Secret Wars

Before arriving at the current Black Panther series, we are going to take a look back at a couple of teams he enjoyed before the newest series under Ta-Nehisi Coates. From my personal experience, I had actually become more interested in T’Challa after reading about him in Al Ewing’s Ultimates and Ultimates Squared. Jonathan Hickman’s […]

Quintessential Captain America Stories To Read This July 4th

In celebration of the American Day of Independence, it’s a great time to point people in the direction of some great stories about the greatest champion of the United States, Captain America: The Sentinel of Liberty. It happens to be more relevant these days when the current mainline story about Steve Rogers is…less than satisfying […]

Did Secret Empire #1 Sell Less Than Half As Many Copies As Civil War II #1?

Diamond’s sales charts hit earlier this week, prompting a sequel to last month’s controversy wherein everyone wondered whether DC’s Button crossover running through Batman and The Flash actually beat Secret Empire #1 in total unit sales once the lenticular and non-lenticular versions of the DC comics were added together, just as they did last month. […]

First announced at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, Marvel’s Avengers animated series will be retitled Avengers: Secret Wars for its fourth season, and that new season kicks off next month, according to a press release. Constant relaunching of series under different titles and a never-ending cycle of blockbuster events has worked so well for […]

Looks Like Magneto Is Not Hydra – At Least Not Yet

Were we all mislead by covers? Or is this a shoe yet to drop? In today’s Secret Empire #1 by Nick Spencer and Steve McNiven, we see Scarlet Witch joining The Vision, Thor Odinson and Deadpool in the new Hydra Avengers. But what could make a Romani character such as Wanda Maximoff join such Nazi-analogues? […]

Who Will Defend Event Comics? Writer Of Marvel’s Secret Empire, Nick Spencer, Will

Event comics have taken a little bit of a beating this weekend. For one thing, they were frequently presented in rebuttals as an alternative reason for Marvel’s October sales slump to Marvel SVP Sales and Marketing David Gabriel’s comments about people not wanting any more diversity. There was also Gabriel’s revelation of Marvel’s plans to use […]

The Illuminated Secret Wars Parody Begins… Properly

The first 72 pages of a very long but very funny Secret Wars parody, Illuminated Wars, has begun. You can read the prologue here but the first full chapter can be downloaded in CBR format right here. This is a full blown take on the series, from the rather blonde white skinned nature of the Thor Corps… […]

What Did The Secret Wars Ever Do For Us? 

By Ian Melton   Secret Wars has made a video game canon; well as least a version of it so far.  This week’s Contest of Champions, issue #5, actually has quite a few big “moments” for the Marvel Universe brought to us by the new Jonathan Hickman, Al Ewing.  In his current three titles for Marvel, […]
