wizardstale-feat

There’s a strong strain of the collector in fandom, and buying for a comics fan can be a difficult endeavor, because so much of what they want is something they already know about. But even the most famous writers, artists, and characters have obscurer works that often go overlooked.

Logan’s Run: Funko Has All The Wolverines You Could Want

funko_featured

Funko recently announced a whole mess of Pop and Dorbz figures of classic X-Men characters, however, you may have noticed that one of the most popular X-Men was unusually underrepresented in that release. That's probably because he's a loner, and nobody can understand his pain. Wolverine always has his own comic (even when he's dead, somehow), always gets his own movies, and now he's getting his own announcement about his own Funko figures.

Say My Name: The Pleasures Of The Spoken Superhero Logo

sayingthelogo-featured

There are a lot of ways that a comic book can reinforce the iconography of the superhero. A snappy costume; signature powers; an artist that defined the look of the book for a generation. But part of the iconography of the superhero is a good logo, and part of establishing that iconography is that hoary old comics tradition: saying the logo out loud.

X-23 Gon’ Give It To Ya: Five Essential Laura Kinney Stories

X23-Featured

The recently released trailer for Logan — Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine — has fans hopeful it could be the best in what can generously be referred to as a patchy trilogy of solo films for the character. The central focus for the new trailer is the young girl left in Logan's care by Professor X, who it was revealed will be called "Laura" confirming her as at least analogous to Laura Kinney, the X-Man formerly known as X-23 and currently starring as the new Wolverine in All-New Wolverine.

Laura first appeared in the animated series X-Men Evolution before making the leap to the comics as Wolverine discovered the existence of his teenage female clone. Laura has been a huge part of Marvel Comics for over twelve years now, and there's a lot of continuity packed in there, but we've picked out the five best comics to help familiarize yourself with the character.

Reavers

Today, Fox Studios released the trailer for Logan, Hugh Jackman's final film portraying the surly Canadian mutant with a penchant for stabbing dudes. Amid the somber tone and the Johnny Cash, we got some real good looks at some of the villains, a group of men with robot limbs, led by Narcos star Boyd Holbrook.

For those not in the know, Holbrook is playing X-Men villain Donald Pierce, and his goons are a group called The Reavers. If X-Men continuity is too impenetrable for you and you've no clue what that means, we've set up a Crash Course to get you caught up.

…And the Logan photos just keep coming. Though recently rumored, these new images from the upcoming Wolverine sequel offer the first official confirmation of Stephen Merchant’s role in the film. Typically known for his comedic work and collaborations with Ricky Gervais, Merchant appears to be taking on a very different — and visually striking — sort of role in Logan as the X-Men character Caliban.

Square Enix Play Arts Gets Even Weirder and That’s a Good Thing [NYCC 2016]

Marvel Comics Variants Wolverine

After a whirlwind year of big reveals, New York Comic Con is typically a chill place for new toy and action figure announcements. It being wedged between San Diego Comic-Con and Toy Fair means there are usually slim pickings when it comes to new goods, but Square Enix had a few tricks up its sleeve at this year's show that are sure to make comic fans... curious.

With the success of the DC and Marvel Variant lines of the Play Arts brand, Square Enix has defined its own corner of those universes. The highly detailed figures get a bit of a bump in the roster this year, at least on the Marvel front. When it comes to DC, all the attention is on Batman.
