Creativity abounds at Toy Fair every year, but you can always count on Square Enix to show up with some of the most clever and inspired action figures. Though they might not have the volume output of some of the larger companies at the show, Square Enix certainly brings the quality. This year was no exception with a couple of great new Marvel Variants planned, as well as even more Tetsuya Nomura DC Comics designs.

If the dream of the '90s is alive in Portland, then the decade's nightmare is alive in Drugs & Wires' cyberpunk post-Soviet eastern Europe. Cryoclaire and Io Black's webcomic envisions a futuristic 1995 where virtual reality and cyborgs are as fashionable as JNCO jeans. Unfortunately, that future kind of sucks. Especially for Dan, the comic's battered and weary protagonist.
ComicsAlliance spoke with Cryoclaire and Io Black about the comic's unique setting, and its eclectic fashion and black humor.
FOX’s Bryan Singer-directed X-Men drama doesn’t have a name, or even many confirmed characters, at least until now. Recent Gotham alum Jamie Chung will suit up as Marvel’s Blink, who Singer had previously showcased in Days of Future Past.
Last we heard, TNT’s M. Night Shyamalan reboot of Tales From the Crypt ran into legal challenges, so we’d know if they’d come far enough for a trailer, right? There’s a mystery afoot in these promos leaked to the web, which feature Shyamalan actively discussing the project, but may otherwise be works of fiction.
Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.
This month in DC’s May solicitations, there's a hefty dose of the pre-Flashpoint DC Universe creeping into the Rebirth status quo, with a number of villains returning from the pages of Who's Who to wreak havoc on a generation of heroes unfamiliar with their schemes.
The Flash’s “Attack on Gorilla City” understandably only had so much capacity to display the CG city and its expensive inhabitants, but will next week’s conclusion to the two-part event fare any better with a whole army of them? See for yourself in the first “Attack on Central City” trailer, as Grodd brings his crew town, with no Caesar or James Franco to hold them back.
In our modern era and its social climate, one writer stands out, and that writer’s name is Margaret Atwood. Of her many works, one stands out tallest of all as the work we need in our modern times, relevant to the debates we find ourselves locked in daily and the future we wish to avoid.
That work, of course, is Angel Catbird Volume 2: To Castle Catula.
Dynamite Entertainment has made a name for itself in the past decade as the place to go for reverential yet modern takes on classic Golden Age superheroes like The Black Terror, The Death-Defying Devil, and The Green Lama in its Project Superpowers shared universe.
Now, Dynamite is throwing out the rulebook and has recruited Ryan Browne and Pete Woods for a new superhero satire series titled Project Superpowers: Hero Killers, about a group of teenage heroes trying to make a name for themselves in a crowded market.
This week’s episode, “Camelot/3000,” finds the team flung into the distant future and a not-historically-verified past in search of pieces of the Spear of Destiny. Battles are fought, minds are controlled, and character development is wildly uneven. Antonio Negret directed the episode, which was written by Anderson Mackenzie.
It's only a few episodes deep, but there's already something very clear about FX's new X-Men spin-off show Legion --- it's staunchly independent in it's execution and vision, and very clearly the work of showrunner Noah Hawley (of the excellent Fargo), and feels at odds with a lot of more recent comic adaptations. For that, we should be grateful.
