You guys, the Punisher wears a tactleneck. That easily makes him the best-styled vigilante this side of Hell's Kitchen. Well, at least as far as the Sideshow Collectibles version of the character anyway. Sure, body armor is nice (and is included as an accessory to throw on), but when you're out there on the cold New York streets gunning down lawbreakers other heroes would merely hand over to the police, there's honestly no better way to do than in a tactleneck. That's just science.
Originally shown off at San Diego Comic-Con, the Punisher sixth-scale figure from Sideshow Collectibles got a more formal unveiling this week. I suppose it's just in time for New York Comic-Con, where the figure will likely be on display at the company's booth (which is nestled by Archie, IDW and WeLoveFine). Back in July, all we really knew about the figure was that it existed and looked impressive in prototype form. The new details shared today give us a much better idea of what to expect not just from the figure, but from Sideshow's Marvel 1/6 scale line in general, too.
Artist Tyler Stout creates some of the most impressive, amazing and sought-after movie posters in the world. You know his work through Mondo, where he’s designed beautiful posters for Akira, Guardians of the Galaxy and the original Star Wars trilogy. Recently he was commissioned by Marvel to illustrate an Avengers: Age of Ultron poster that would be made exclusively to the cast and crew of that film. In a world of extremely rare posters, this one — unless you’re Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson or Joss Whedon — might be one of the rarest. But, we’ve got one right here that we want to give away to one of our lucky readers.
Agents of SHIELD is back on our screens, so we've invited our writers Ziah Grace and Chris Haley to share their thoughts about the show in our regular post-show analysis, Agents of Something. Neither of them have been keeping up with the agents in previous seasons, so they’ll offer a fresh new perspective, and they’ll probably have quite a few questions.
Episode two of season three, ‘Purpose in the Machine,’ was directed by Kevin Tancharoen and written by DJ Doyle.
Last night saw The Flash making a speedy return for Season 2, as we caught up with “The Man Who Saved Central City,” and learned what really went down in May’s cliffhanger finale. The premiere came with an heavy (if expected) cost however, one producers might have a slight bit of hope to offer on.
The thing about Dick Briefer's Golden Age Frankenstein comics is that if you start reading them from the beginning, there's just enough in there from the novel to make you think that he's doing a straight up adaptation of Mary Shelley. There's familiar stuff about Victor deciding to conquer death and stitching up a bunch of corpses, charging them up with lightning, and then the Monster's escape out in to a world that will never understand it, right down to the villagers with the pitchforks. It's three pages that make you think you know exactly what's going on.
And then, on page four, the Monster breaks into a zoo, punches out a lion, and rides off on an elephant, and that's when you realize that Frankenstein is on a whole other level of being completely bonkers.
About this time last year, Marvel’s stylish first Daredevil poster clued us into the fact that Charlie Cox’s Man Without Fear would stick to basic black duds early on, keeping the iconic red suit under wraps. No longer, as Matt Murdock’s blood-red body armor is on full display for the first Daredevil Season 2 poster, debuting at New York Comic-Con 2015.
The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.
Tonight’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ put serious “Purpose in the Machine,” rebooting Hydra with a new MCU twist, and speeding along not one, but two shocking returns. Our full review!
There are so many characters and so much going on in Avengers: Age of Ultron, making it Marvel’s biggest film to date. But there was one character who was sorely missed: Tom Hiddleston’s charismatic villain Loki, who didn’t have so much as a cameo appearance in the film — not that they had much room for him. As it turns out, Loki was in an earlier cut of Age of Ultron, but Joss Whedon removed his brief cameo in post-production.
Jesse Eisenberg’s casting as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice raised more than a few eyebrows — Eisenberg is typically known for playing nebbish, fidgety characters, but if the trailers for Batman v Superman are any indication, it looks as though Zack Snyder put those qualities to interesting use, giving us a Lex Luthor unlike any we’ve seen before. If you’re curious to know more about Eisenberg’s Luthor, this latest piece of viral marketing sheds some light on what Snyder and Eisenberg are doing with the notorious Superman baddie.
