When Geoffrey Thorne, Shannon Eric Denton, Jason Johnson, and Brian Denham got the job of bringing Knight Rider to the page for publisher Lion Forge, the bar for weirdness was set pretty high, and next week, when the paperback collection of the series hits shelves, we all get to see how they did.

Mad Max: Fury Road takes place in a world so full of detail and imagination that it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that director George Miller has a backstory for just about everything on screen. In the finished film, everything feels like it has a history. Every corner of every frame is alive.
Rather than confine this information to his imagination, Miller has put it in a comic book.
The inevitable domination of the world by Funko's Pop figures is all but a foregone conclusion at this point. You can't hope to stop them, you can merely hope to contain the power they hold over the masses. Sadly, we won't be able to help stave off the eventuality of it all because we're too addicted to collecting the cute little blighters.
That's where you come in. We're going to be giving away 10 different comic book Funko Pop figures over Twitter for the next few weeks. Sure that means more Funko figures out in the wild, spreading like wildfire. It's a risk we're willing to take however, just to make our loyal readers happy.
Ever since the Jem and the Holograms movie was announced, it has been the official position of ComicsAlliance that it will be the single most important film of our lifetimes, so when the trailer hit, of course we watched and discussed it among ourselves. It seems we're not the only ones, either --- there's been so much discussion about the trailer that Topless Robot's Luke Thompson sat down with Jem producer Jason Blum to discuss the blacklash from fans.
If you didn’t like Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, just know that it could’ve been a lot worse. An early draft of the script turned the Turtles into aliens from another dimension and Shredder was turned into Colonel Schroeder, a secret alien who can grow blades. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which gets totally tubular with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
NBC has taken its Heroes Reborn gag impressively far with the crafting of an actual trailer shown at the upfronts (though one that curiously never surfaced online), and now another returning cast member has pledged to the elaborate joke. Prior series star Greg Grunberg will turn his head and squint through NBC’s Heroes Reborn revival, at least until the network decides its ridiculous prank has gone far enough.
We've already seen the rest of Bandai's planned offerings from Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the Hulkbuster was teased not that long ago. Now we've got our first official look at the magnificent beast, and it is glorious. And expensive.
There are currently very few ways to get a standalone Hulkbuster action figure, and there are even fewer ways to get one at a reasonable price. While the price point on the upcoming SH Figuarts Hulkbuster is likely to turn many of you away, it is still quite a bit cheaper than the Hot Toys version. It'll also be just a tad bit more expensive than trying to hunt down all the figures in Hasbro's Hulkbuster BAF wave coming this summer.
Maestro, the despotic senior incarnation of the Hulk from Peter David's classic "Future Imperfect" storyline, is back in one of the Battleworld zones of Secret Wars, and in the pages of the new Future Imperfect series from David and Greg Land. From the looks of the fancy jewelry he's wearing on Rafa Garres' fantastic variant cover for issue #2 --- debuting exclusively on ComicsAlliance --- the other Marvel heroes haven't fared so well in Maestro's domain.
I've never liked the Transformers. The franchise didn't get its hooks into me as a kid, and while I've tried to give it a shot as an adult, it never really clicked. But now, with a recommendation from almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale that left me with three years worth (and counting) of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics, I'm going on a quest to see if these comics can turn me from someone who has never cared at all about Optimus Prime into someone who uses words like "Cybertron" and "alt-mode" with alarming regularity. And Primus help me, it's working.
This week, Orion Pax is back in action and back in time!
While the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is partying together on the set of Captain America: Civil War, the Guardians of the Galaxy must be feeling a little lonely. While they haven’t yet been integrated into the larger Marvel universe, director James Gunn is ready to expand the Guardians universe. During a Periscope chat with fans yesterday, Gunn revealed that he’s already in talks with an actor about joining Guardians of the Galaxy 2 for a major new role, a new Guardian.
