That press release came from Dynamite Entertainment, who wanted to let us know that they're releasing in April a new collection of Howard Chaykin's The Shadow: Blood and Judgment. And I'm not alone in my elation. Read on to see some preview pages and rea
Between Nickelodeon's new Voltron Force animated series and Netflix streaming much of the original show, fans are feasting on some Robeast-slaying action of late. Dynamite Entertainment's been waiting to join the party for awhile, but has finally debuted four pieces of promo art from December's
The corporate licensing stars are aligning in just such a way that suggest the next piece of 1980s nostalgia to be reborn in a Tron-level event will be Voltron: Defender of the Universe. Believe it or not, a bidding war
