We've seen a ton of promotional material for X-Men: Days of Future Past -- there's been more teasers, character images, early trailers and featurettes than you can shake a pair of claws at -- but the newly-arrived final trailer does us all a favor and just spits everything out in an easy-to-digest fashion. Finally.
We've seen our fair share of statues honoring Fletcher Hanks' highly bizarre alien crimefighter Stardust The Super Wizard since the character entered the public domain some years ago, but Fresh Monkey Fiction will finally give the hero -- and five other pulp classics -- at least five points of 4.5" tall action figure articulation in 2015.

DC's Multiversity is finally happening. Originally Announced in 2009 as an intended 2010 release, the first 40-page issue of the multiverse-spanning story by writer Grant Morrison and artists including Chris Sprouse, Karl Story, Ben Oliver, Frank Quitely, Cameron Stewart and more, now has an August 2014 release date. Comic Book Resources has a first-look at the first installment's colored interiors with a two-page spread by Reis, Joe Prado and Nei Ruffino, along with an official statement from Morrison that names the threat that heroes including the newly previewed Superman Kalel from Earth-23 will be facing.

Every weekend here at CA we’re cracking open the latest and/or just greatest decades old action figures around to see what sets them apart from the articulated plastic pack. This week we’re unboxing Bandai's new S.H. Figuarts Black Ranger action figure from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Hit the jump to see why in our full video review.
Since 2009 Kodansha has printed a combined 30 million copies of Hajime Isayama's Attack On Titan manga, which so far includes 12 volumes and a number of spinoffs. That breaks down to around 16,438 volumes of manga a day for five years. Now, that may not seem like a ton in a market where the number one manga, One Piece, has sold more than 300 million (and counting) copies across 71 volumes since 1997, but one needs only look at North American comic sales numbers to concur that it's still a statistic worth celebrating. And celebrate they did last night at the Lazona Kawasaki Plaza shopping mall in Saiwai-ku, Kawasaki, Japan with a 200-foot-tall projection featuring the series signature man-eating Colossal Titan and the humans who fight them at something approaching a 1:1 scale.
Ryan North's Adventure Time run with artist Jim Rugg has yielded many welcome surprises (a mecha Lumpy Space Princess, for one) but fans have also paid a price for such a creative rampage as Finn and Jake have learned about mind-body dualism the hard way by becoming ghosts in a machine. Now the spectral heroes have to turn to the last person they can usually count on to return to being flesh and buds: Ice King. Get an exclusive first-look at next week's Adventure Time #27 past the cut for a taste of how the heroes fare on their quest to become corporeal.
