Since it launched, I've made no effort to hide my enthusiasm for Mezco's One:12 Collective. Mezco's been doing a fantastic job bringing characters from all reaches of fandom to collectors in a format we haven't seen done this well in the past. Though it could be argued the One:12 Collective line expanded way too fast from its start, that hasn't stopped collectors from snapping up new releases. Based on what we saw from Mezco at Toy Fair this year, that's unlikely to stop anytime soon heading into 2018.
Courtesy of DC Comics, ComicsAlliance brings you an advance look at new periodical comic books, collected editions, graphic novels and collectibles going on sale in May 2017 (and in some cases beyond) from the publisher’s superhero line, Gerard Way's Young Animal, and the mature readers Vertigo imprint.
You can always count on a number of surprises from NECA at Toy Fair, but this year, I don't think very many collectors could have expected the announcements the company unveiled. While new Predator and Alien toys are as expected, you never know what the mad geniuses at NECA might have in store for the likes of Evil Dead, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the other dozens of gaming and movie licenses it holds. All you can be sure about is that you will come away from the NECA booth ready to find a new source of income to pay for all the things you're going to need. Like the new Batman vs Aliens and Predator sets.
This week, Lord Zedd uses a magical disappearing island and an invincible plant monster for an unsuccessful attempt at turning one (1) girl evil. Aim high, bad guys.
This week, it’s the second week of Valentine’s Day in National City, so, of course, everyone is having dramatic relationship-related misunderstandings! Also, spell check’s most hated super-nuisance is here attempting to marry Supergirl! “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk” was directed by Stefan Pleszczynski from a script by Jessica Queller and Sterling Gates.
It is usually to humankind‘s advantage that the flame of hope is not easily extinguished. When the pursuit of a lofty ideal grows difficult, the unshakable bedrock of hope has provided the righteous with strength and fortitude. But hope can also be a heartbreaker, constantly teasing us with the faint chance of achieving an impossible dream. Up until today, fans were able to cling to the possibility of a third installment of Guillermo Del Toro‘s Hellboy franchise, however remote. But the director took to Twitter earlier today to deliver the sad news that we may now finally abandon hope — it ain’t happening.
When you go see Logan on March 3, you might want to keep your butt firmly planted in the theater seat after the credits roll, bub. In what is hardly surprising news at all, there is post-credits scene attached to Wolverine’s latest (and last) outing, and though we don’t know what it is just yet, it probably won’t be long before someone lets the cat out of the bag. Until then, feel free to speculate away.
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with decades of comics behind, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at the denizens of the hidden city of Attilan, the Inhumans!
Game of Thrones had so much fun with Iwan Rheon in a nefarious and regal role, so why would Marvel’s The Inhumans want any different? The ABC-IMAX drama has its first star, as Rheon joins Marvel’s Royal Family as brother to Black Bolt, the dastardly Maximus.
Folks, there is a lot going on in the first few pages of this week's issue of Jughead. Not only have Ryan North and Derek Charm introduced us to an increasingly bizarre roster of musical acts in Riverdale --- including the Josie and the Pussycats side project Melody and the Literal Cats Who Play Cat-Sized Instruments --- but their story about Reggie becoming King for a Month has done wonders for one Dilton Doiley.
Yes, the book might be about Jughead being in conflict with Reggie, but the real action here comes from Dilton, who shatters the fourth wall to bring us one of the best recap pages I have ever seen. Check it out!
