As horrifying as it is has become to utter the words "Dragon Ball" and "Evolution" in the same sentence since the 2009 live action film, I've got to say, Viz's new Dragon Ball Color (which begins at Dragon Ball chapter 195 a.k.a. Dragon Ball Z chapter 1) feels like the natural next step for Akira Toriyama's beloved 30-year-old manga. After reading the story of Goku in almost half a dozen different formats since Viz began localizing the manga in 1998, I was skeptical about whether reprinting the manga in color would do anything for me -- especially since the anime served to bring the story to life in living color already. Turns out, it scratches a certain kind of Saiyan itch. You can watch my full video review after the cut.
We've been paying close attention to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's work in Zero Year, the current Batman storyline that looks back at one of the Dark Knight's earliest adventures in Gotham. But the upcoming issue #28 offers a brief intermission, jumping out of Batman's past and into his near future. Written by Snyder and James Tynion and illustrated by Dustin Nguyen, the issue offers an early look at what's to come in Batman Eternal, the weekly series starting in March. Taking to Twitter back in December, Snyder described it as a "spoiler issue": “We agreed that with all the crazy stuff that's going to happen in 2014 - and my goal above all in 2014 is to keep things daring and fun - it'd be a thrill to do a total spoiler issue," said Snyder "A stand-alone issue that takes place in the near future and reveals all sorts of massive surprises coming to Gotham.”
Snyder will be a guest on DC All Access, DC Comics' web series that features interviews with creators, editors, and more. The publisher has provided ComicsAlliance with a sneak peak at the interview, which includes a look at some of Nguyen's art, that you can check out below.
Hey, remember the first time you saw Superman flying? It could have been in the Christopher Reeve Superman films, the Super Friends cartoon, Superman: The Animated Series, or heck, maybe even in a comic book.
Whatever the case, the reaction from kids tends to be universal: It's the best thing they've ever seen. Eventually those people become grown-ups who maybe like other superheroes more or stop caring about superheroes at all, but it's worth being reminded of the effect seeing a handsome guy in a blue suit blast through the sky can have on an impressionable mind. It's all in the face of a 16-month-old boy seeing a scene from Man of Steel for the first time in the video after the jump.
In what may simply be a loving tribute to one of the most popular shows on TV or a very subtle commentary on Jay Leno's last episode as host of The Tonight Show, Conan O'Brien got in full zombie makeup Thursday night to commemorate the premiere of the second half The Walking Dead's fourth season on AMC.
Check out the Conan video, which led into an interview with TWD cast members including Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yeun and Melissa McBride, after the jump.
There is a new Batman movie coming out in theaters this weekend, and it's easily the best Batman movie yet. It's also a great sci-fi movie, and a great Western, and a great Matrix remake, and it's especially a great comedy.
But first and foremost, it's a Lego movie. And it's the Lego movie. It does everything you want a Lego movie to do. And that's awesome.
Welcome, fellow traveller, to the ComicsAlliance recap of the February episode of Agents of SHIELD. Yes, we're only getting one episode this month. Weep or cheer, depending on your established bias.
The title of this month's episode is T.R.A.C.K.S., which doesn't appear to stand for anything, and if you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything, which reminds me, maybe this is the episode when everything turns around? Spoilers follow!
Riding the shield-slinging Captain America: The Winter Soldier promotional blitz that kicked off on Sunday, Gameloft has released its first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier: The Official Game. Headed to iOS, Android and Windows 8 mobile devices on April 4 -- the same day the movie opens -- the new game promises "an original blend of combat action and flexible tactical options." The trailer is more straightforward, though, and simply shows Captain America smashing faces.
The Super Bowl commercial for Transformers: Age of Extinction, the fourth film in the Michael Bay led franchise, features, among other ridiculous things, a robot with with machine guns -- seemingly not attached to its body, but actually holding giant machine guns -- while descending from the sky with parachutes. It is ridiculous, but what the hell, watch it below anyway.
Following the debut of the latest Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer during the Super Bowl, Sony released new footage for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2. In addition to the new commercial, Sony released a near 4 minute sizzle trailer for the film online, spotlighting the villains -- especially Electro -- while promoting the website Enemies Unite.
