Marvel Studios put out a press release this morning in which it announced it would be working with Netflix on four new live-action series that will lead up to a mini-series in which the four heroes will team up as The Defenders. Straight from the press release, as per the Wall Street Journal online: Led […]
By now you have undoubtedly seen the news that in 2014 Marvel Comics will launch a new title with a familiar name — Ms. Marvel — but a very new character sporting it. In what will be a first for a title character in a Marvel book, the new Ms. Marvel will be a Muslim, […]
Don’t expect to see a “Captain Marvel” movie from Marvel Studios any time soon — or at least, not one with the current Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers. Or any female-led movie, for that matter. That is the word from Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, and therefore the person most likely to know about […]
If you’re an older Spider-Man reader, then you remember the days when Peter Parker was married to M.J. It was a rarity in comics—a happy, stable relationship. Peter and M.J. made one another stronger. She and he had careers and their own villains and, well, that dynamic lasted for more than twenty years. No matter […]
Some of the mightiest cosplayers united at Comic Con May 30-June 2. It was a delight for fans of every character from Harley Quinn to Doctor Who!
Model and Costumer Alexia Jean Grey created an amazing cosplay of Marvel Comics’ The Black Widow, and photographer Rodney Brown put together this incredible set of pictures taken with her at the New York Comic Con 2012! You can also check out more of Rodney Brown’s photos of New York Comic Con 2012 (And keep […]
The news has broken on Marvel’s next big event, and it’s gonna be the Avengers vs. the X-Men. In what will be a 12-part series (with multiple extra tie-ins, no doubt), Marvel is counting on its “architects” of Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Matt Fraction, Ed Brubaker, and Jonathan Hickman to carry the torches through the entire […]
If you are wondering why comic books characters like Alpha Flight and Hercules are cool again, then you need to follow the works of Fred Van Lente. For those that lament that a lot of stories in Marvel Comics either don’t fit continuity or are too dark, Mr. Van Lente’s work has the perfect balance […]
By now, you may have seen our videos of Boston Comic Con 2011, and now we end our coverage of the comic book convention by displaying our cosplay pictorial. It wasn’t just comic book costumes, we also had some anime and video game cosplay and outfits from many other genres. Go ahead and see who […]
If you haven’t read X-Men in a while, are new to the merry mutants, or are just looking for something different, Mike Carey’s Age of X storyline taking place in X-Men: Legacy and New Mutants right now is not to be missed. I say this as someone who has to restrain herself from gushing over […]
The first movie poster for Captain America has just been released, and Marvel has the image. Tell me this doesn’t look absolutely amazing? Also, if you didn’t have a reason to watch the Superbowl before, you do now–word has it that the teaser trailer for the movie, dubbed “The First Avenger,” will debut during a […]
Well, that was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t expect to like this book at all—I wasn’t even going to give it the time of day, but seeing some preview pages caught my eye and I decided to give it a chance. I’m glad I did, because this was easily one of the most enjoyable reads […]
Black Widow – This book has seriously gone down the sink hole with the new creative team. It’s sad, too, because Marjorie Liu did an awesome job on her first arc, only to be replaced by unimaginative drivel. I’m hoping the upcoming Widow Maker cross-over with Hawkeye & Mockingbird (another title biting the dust) writer […]
Box art for the highly-anticipated Marvel vs. Capcom 3 video game was released earlier this month; interesting to note that not a single female Marvel character made the cut: Meanwhile, Capcom represents three. Add to that, the only playable female characters on the Marvel side that have been revealed are She-Hulk and X-23, and it’s looking like […]
This book just isn’t doing anything for me right now. Like, at all. And I’m not sure if that’s because of the writing (which isn’t necessarily HORRIBLE, given some of the truly terrible stuff out there), or because the first story arc as a whole, which I like to call “Super Blasty Magic Battle,” didn’t […]

Uncanny X-Men definitely needs some help, and in December, it’ll be getting it in the form of writer Kieron Gillen, newly-exclusive to Marvel and now co-writer to the merry mutants with Matt Fraction. Gillen, who is already working on his own X-title due out soon, Generation Hope, should hopefully infuse some … well … “strength” to an Uncanny script that has […]
My awesome and hilarious co-worker at That’s Entertainment pointed out to me last week during our shift together that he wondered if there were any books I actually enjoyed reading. When I was confused as to why he was asking this, he explained that he found the majority of my reviews to be amusing, because […]
Here are my thoughts (quick reviews) on comics released on July 8th, 2010. Please be aware of spoilers. Brightest Day: The Atom: Not being a strong fan of The Atom since The Sword of The Atom back in the 1980s, I wasn’t expecting much. I wasn’t impressed with how the writer was showcasing Ray Palmer’s […]
