Wednesday is shaping up to be a big week with the start of the first major crossover in the new DC Universe – Forever Evil – and the first major event of the new X-Men titles. Here’s the scoop from Third Eye Comics‘ Steve Anderson, who will no doubt be at this year’s Baltimore Comic Con. If you’re in the area or close by, here’s all the info. And here’s the latest on this week’s new releases: Continue Reading
After nearly destroying the Internet by not praising “Pacific Rim” as the grawtest movue evah!!! I figured I’d stir up yet some more controversy with this one – a look at the best collection of bolts and gears in pop culture.
This list is just for the ones I’ve seen so apologies in advance to Wall-E and The Iron Giant fans out there.
Think I’m missing anyone? Share ‘em in the comment section! Now on to the Top 10!
I live in Maryland, but my favorite baseball team isn’t the Baltimore Orioles (my interest in the team left with Cal) or the Washington Nationals.
In addition to exciting games, their marketing department puts together some awesome promotions like last Saturday’s “Star Wars Night.”
Thankfully, I was with my brother, who is more than accustomed to my geek-out moments, which were even more obnoxious than usual with each new Star Wars memorabilia we saw. And it was very cool watching fathers out rocking some Star Wars gear, costume or lightsaber with their children and their own Star Wars attire.
J.J. Abrams has been getting a lot of love as being the ideal successor to take over the Star Wars franchise starting with “Episode VII” and he’s got another big fan in Star Wars creator George Lucas himself.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Lucas shared his thoughts on the future of the franchise under Abrams’ direction.
“Yeah, [I'm excited]. J.J.’s a great director and we’re friends,” Lucas said. “I think he understands the whole thing and how it works.”
For those prequel haters who may be concerned that Lucas will be overly involved, he says he will have very limited involvement if at all.
“If they need help or anything, they’ll give me a call,” he said. “Otherwise, I’m off on my own.”
After an exhausting, yet awesome Free Comic Book Day/5th Anniversary celebration at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, my man Steve Anderson has somehow found the energy to go through this week’s most anticipated new releases:
THE ROAD TO BATMAN: ZERO YEAR begins
Snyder & Capullo have pretty much proven over the last two years that they are THE Batman creative team of the 21st century — as they’ve delivered some of the best BATMAN stories since the days of FRANK MILLER.
A play off on the now-classic BATMAN: YEAR ONE, YEAR ZERO will use the NEW 52 to tell a storyline that takes place 5-6 years in the past.
While details are sketchy on what this one will entail, it’s a very formative look at the development of not just Bruce into Batman, but also the world that surrounds him, and some of his most notorious foes.
Now, in this week’s BATMAN #20, we see a special lead-in chapter set in the present day, featuring a strange visitor coming to Gotham when tragedy delivers one of the most exciting team-ups the NEW 52 has seen yet. This issue is a perfect jumping on point for one of the best comics on the stands right now. Seriously, BATMAN continues to be an impressive read, and we cannot get enough. Continue Reading
While it’s fine to disagree on politics, religion, sports, the sexiest woman in the world and the ridiculous non-holding call in the Superbowl (yes, I’m still bitter and no, I’m not gonna let it go) there is one thing we can all agree on — The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars film. No other answers will be accepted. Thanks.
R.I.P. Richard LeParmentier see also Admiral Motti, the infamous Death Star commander who doubted the ways of the Force. Thankfully Darth Vader was on hand to help him out.
As always, Steve from Third Eye Comics provides his take on this week’s must gets:
BATMAN AND RED ROBIN #19 — Carrie Kelley joins the DC NEW 52!
Dark Knight Returns has stood the test of time as one of THE coolest BATMAN graphic novels of all time… without a doubt. And, we’re totally pumped to see how DC plans to incorporate one of the most endearing Robins ever into the NEW 52 with the arrival of CARRIE KELLEY as the new Robin. Continue Reading
I don’t know about the rest of you, but my March Madness bracket died a tragic death right after another Georgetown’s opening round collapse Friday night. Fortunately I can do a little better with my “Star Wars: This Is Madness” one.
I complained big time once I saw the Han Solo in carbonite cell phone case for iPhone 4, but now it looks like I’ll be able to cover my iPhone in some Star Wars merchandise after all with this handy R2-D2 cell phone case.
Here’s all the product info:
*The product has a flat and smooth back that is made out of aluminum. The design on the case is not 3D.
*Slim protective case for iPhone 5 with perfect fit.
*Hard shell case provides protection for your iPhone 5 from scratches, dents, dings. Almost unnoticable weight difference.
*Quick and easy access to all iPhone 5 features: Screen Display, Dock Connector, Headphone port, microphone, and Camera Lens
*Easy installation and removal (snap on, snap off). No dissasembly is required. 100% perfect fit.
*Fits the following models: Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPhone 5
Sadly, no mention of a hidden lightsaber compartment. Guess that’s on the next one?
Here’s where you can order it.
