Weapon X alumni have a proud decades-long tradition of showing up in each other's comics to cause trouble and pick fights. But with favored target James "Logan" Howlett dead, the remaining Weapon Xers have to turn to each other. At least in my head, that's story behind the new arc that starts in Deadpool #8, which carries the very descriptive title "Deadpool vs. Sabretooth."
Since 2006, fans have flooded the Javitz Center year after year for New York Comic Con, but until this year, they've never been witness to magnificent pieces Sideshow Collectibles offered. Sideshow does its fair share of shows, but 2015 marked the first time the company made an appearance at NYCC. Though the booth may not have had the same square footage as Sideshow's SDCC presence, it was still packed with loads of incredible sculptures featuring many fan favorites and some of the company's own creations.
Most of what was on display at NYCC had been seen before at other conventions, but the more diminutive booth allowed for a more focused presentation. Where the SDCC collection was three or four times larger, that also meant there were that many more products vying for your attention. While it was definitely cool to see so many new things a few months ago, there was definitely some "cool stuff" overload happening. Notably missing from the NYCC booth was a great deal of Hot Toys, which was represented at New York with a handful of First Order Stormtroopers, and that's it. Sideshow put the spotlight on its own goods, including the DC and Marvel premium format figures due to arrive over the course of the next year, and its outstandingly creepy Court of the Dead line.
The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series.
This week, Jubilee actually compares the events of her life to a soap opera, just in case you didn't get that before now.
The idea of one's toys coming to life at night is a charming and utterly horrifying staple of children's stories, but here's the thing. If you're a kid who has action figures, then you don't just have spacemen and cowboys -- you have a lot of bad guys. The good guys need someone to fight, after all, so chances are pretty good that your toybox is going to be full of at least a few megalomaniacal snake-themed terrorists and probably a lot of thematic serial killers too. So what happens when they come to life? As it turns out, writer/director Paul Constantakis has the answer in a short film called Villainous.

Today at the C2E2 expo in Chicago, Marvel elaborated on a number of major announcements they've been teasing of late. Perhaps the biggest news is the introduction of a new ongoing Hawkeye series by part of the acclaimed Immortal Iron Fist team of Matt Fraction and David Aja; meanwhile, Khoi Pham will be replacing Ryan Stegman on Scarlet Spider, with Stegman moving to help Jonathan Hickman wrap up his Fantastic Four run...
I know this isn't Star Trek related, but Sneaker Politics will only be selling their unofficial "Wolverine pack" of Air Max 95s for a limited time, so I'm putting it up today. They've got two sets of shoes over at their site based on the costumes of Wolverine and Sabretooth respectively...
