On The Cheap: Get To Know Elektra and The Punisher In Comixology’s ‘Daredevil’ Sale


We're less than a week away from the return of Netflix's Daredevil series, and this time, The Punisher and Elektra are coming along for the ride. To celebrate this, Comixology has a fortnight long sale on some of the best Daredevil, Punisher and Elektra stories in recent memory so you can catch up on the comics before the new series begins.

The sale includes the first volumes of classic Daredevil runs, including Frank Miller and Klaus Janson's legendary character defining work with the character from the eighties. Also by Miller and David Mazzucchelli is the seminal Daredevil: Born Again which was a major influence on the first season of the television series.

Obi-Wan and Anakin Limited Series Promises Pre-Teen Prequel Padawan Action [Preview]


Remember how the prequel trilogy jumped over those awkward pre-teen years of Anakin Skywalker's life after Episode I, and went straight to all the teen angst you could handle in Episode II? Well you'll soon be able to enjoy all those formative years you missed with Obi-Wan and Anakin, a new limited series from Marvel's Star Wars universe.

Written by Charles Soule and drawn by Marco Checchetto, both fresh off Star Wars stints on Land and Shattered Empire respectively, Obi-Wan and Anakin will follow the newly minted Jedi master and his padawan as they grow into their new roles, exploring the limits of patience a teacher can have with a new apprentice. Can you imagine being a twenty-something whose closest friend just died and then being put in charge of a bucket of raging hormones who happens to be one of the most powerful space wizards in the galaxy? I was a nightmare at that age, and I didn't even have a lightsaber.

Best Abs Ever (This Week): An Appreciation Of Male Comic Book Eye Candy

Eden Fesi-Stefano Caselli-hed

In the process of writing my article about muscles vs curves, and how the big dudes of superhero comics typically fail to represent the tastes of most androphile women, I gathered a collection of images and recommended artists from my correspondents that illustrate the sort of art they'd love to see more of -- but which there's sadly very little of compared to all the T&A fan-service targeted at straight men.

I had far too many recommendations to put in the article, so I've compiled the collection (and a few personal favorites) into a very special one-off post. The collection includes pin-ups, fan art, sketches, and some traditional superhero art from artists who aren't afraid to put a little male eye candy in their work!

Marvel Puts A Halt To Punisher Fan Film [Video]

Punisher The Dead Can’t Be Distracted

It looks like fans excited by the prospect of a high-production-value film adaptation of writer Greg Rucka and artist Marco Checchetto's recent run on The Punisher will have to wait for something officially sanctioned by Marvel.

The publisher has issued a cease-and-desist order against filmmaker Mike Pecci for his planned film, The Dead Can't Be Distracted, which he says could have been the pilot to a full Web series. That won't be happening now, at least without some serious intervention from Marvel itself.
