moviestoy-story-that-time-forgot-poster-1

Well, that was unexpected. I mean, we knew Pixar and ABC were working on a followup to last year's exceptionally great Toy Story Of Terror! Halloween special, this one called Toy Story That Time Forgot, but we really didn't anticipate Mike Mignola to be the one selected to make it official in an inescapably cool Comic-Con exclusive poster.

Sucks to be you! No proximity to Afflatex for you!

Colton Haynes Dons Arsenal’s Red Faux-Leathers For ‘Arrow’ Season 3

arsenal-arrow-hed

When Colton Haynes joined CW's Arrow in season two as Roy Harper, it was only a matter of time before he got gussied up in his best red Arrow cosplay as Arsenal -- given that, you know, that's who Roy Harper is in the comics. I mean, he could have been Speedy or, oh, Red Arrow, I guess, but since Speedy is a daft name and they don't even want to call the main guy in the show Green Arrow, they kind of have to go with Arsenal, though that's a rotten codename too. But I digress.

Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first official look at Colton Haynes in his dark red Robin Hood suit. Doesn't he look brooding and moody and serious? And isn't that an awful lot of lacing?

The Batmanologist Guide To Comixology’s Massive 99-Cent Batman 75th Anniversary Sale

Batsale00

Okay, so there's good news and bad news. The good news is that ComiXology is having a massive sale on Batman comics, and has knocked a bunch of them down to 99¢ each, which means that you can grab some great stories on the cheap. The bad news? Since this whole thing is in honor of Batman's 75th anniversary, they've put 750 comics on sale, plus a handful of graphic novel collections. All things considered, that's a pretty good problem to have, but still, that can be pretty overwhelming.

Fortunately, we're here to help. As the World's Foremost Batmanologist, I've sifted through the sale to bring you safe bets for what you should be grabbing during the sale. Assuming you've got the obvious ones -- like The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One and the recent runs by Morrison, Snyder, and Capullo -- here's what to grab next!
