DC’s New ‘He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe’ Comics Are Secretly Awesome

hemmu314

When the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series found its way to Netflix Instant not too long ago, I thought it would make perfect background noise for my work day; some nostalgic entertainment to help pass the time while working on the site. But as an adult, what I discovered in that early 1980s cartoon based on an action figure line was far more distracting and indeed more sophisticated than I ever realized as a little boy. While the animation itself is crude (and famously recyclable), the show expresses a palpable sense of otherworldly adventure and intrigue through its writing but even more so through it's surprisingly awesome art direction. I thought, this medieval-techno world of Eternia and its heroes, villains, magics and prophecies could really be great if someone wanted to really dig into it.

Mark Waid and James Robinson Introduce Peter Parker’s Sister In ‘Spider-Man: Family Business’

2-fa49259466-1371488807

Like many Marvel characters, Spider-Man's relationship with his parents is a tragic one. That said, his parents' lives aren't really explored in depth very often, at least not recently. But Marvel is taking a new look at Richard and Mary Parker, as the publisher has announced Spider-Man: Family Business. Written by Mark Waid and James Robinson and illustrated by Gabrielle Dell'Otto, Family Business focuses on Peter Parker learning more about his deceased spy parents, and discovering that he has a long lost sister.In an interview with USA Today, Waid described the tale -- which will see Peter go from New York City to Monte Carlo to Cairo -- as a "spy" story. It kicks off with the Kingpin attempting to expand his criminal empire, which leads to Peter Parker, the son of former CIA agents, finding himself under attack. As he's attempting to figure out what's happening, a woman in a convertible pulls up in front of him, and claims to be his long lost sister Teresa.

Trickster 2: The Little San Diego Con That Could [Indiegogo]

untitled-2-1339777204

If you've never been to San Diego's Comic-Con International, it's hard to picture just how huge and insane it truly is. Last year's attendance numbers topped out around 120,000 people, turning the little town that Ron Burgundy made famous into a nightmarish maelstrom of Twilight shantytowns, promotional blitzes and a decibel level akin to a black metal concert. While at times it felt like ther
