Man, and I thought the Comic Book Gang Wars were over.

The New York Times reports that the character of "Angela," which was created by Neil Gaiman for the Image comic "Spawn," will appear in the Marvel miniseries "Age Of Ultron" (I'm NOT going to maintain "spoilers" when the publisher purposely chooses to run this stuff in major news sites -- though to be fair, Marvel characterises this not as a "spoiler" per se but as a "bonus").

You really have to ask: what would make YOU walk away from a sweeeeet gig writing two separate "Green Lantern" spinoff books?

According to the now former "Green Lantern Corps" and "Red Lanterns" writer Joshua Hale Fialkov on his personal blog, it was really quite simple:

"There were editorial decisions about the direction of the book that conflicted with the story I was hired to tell, and I felt that it was better to let DC tell their story the way they want." Read More...

This is really just troubling rumor based on a throwaway line in this Pajiba article at this point -- but it is possible that "Community" will end May 9th.

From Pajiba:

"NBC has announced some finale dates. Specifically, “Parks and Recreation” will end this season on May 2nd, while “Community” will end its season (and possibly the series) on the following week, May 9th." Read More...

Though they have played mortal enemies Professor X and Magneto in the "X-Men" movies, actors Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are actually friends in real life. And they are such good friends, that McKellen is now going to officiate Stewart's upcoming wedding!

73-year-old McKellen recently broke the news on the UK's Jonathan Ross show: Read More...

While Grant Morrison thought the "original idea" of Wonder Woman was kinda cool, as well as that Lynda Carter TV series -- that's pretty much it. His unnamed Wonder Woman comic book for DC will both contain elements of those WW versions, and be "a completely new version."

Could we see the return of the Ghost With The Most?

There's been a lot of chatter on the comic interwebs about the new "Batman" character Harper Row possibly being the "next" Robin, following the death of Damian Wayne. Let's face it: she's plucky, resourceful, adorable, and has somehow become inextricably interwoven within the Dark Knight's life. To anybody following the Batman comic, it almost seems too obvious.

So naturally, when we at MTV Geek had a chance to interview "Batman" writer Scott Snyder, we put the Harper Row question to him in our trademark subtle style:

Geek:  So Harper Row is totally the next Robin, right? Read More...

This sounds like one of the most epic convention fails of all time -- but who expected it would come out of "My Little Pony" fandom?

According to The Daily Dot, last month's LasPegasus Unicon in Las Vegas was "botched" -- saddled (if you would excuse the pun) with claims of fraud, theft, bounced checks, "fake money," and attendees being kicked out of hotels. If this is all true, it sounds like the Bernie Madoff of fan conventions.

Laika and the Cosmonauts in Concert at Wetlands - 1995

Notorious B.I.G. might be coming back -- as a cartoon.

A new animated series based on the late rapper's family is currently being shopped around by Ossian Media. "House of Wallace" would feature the real-life voices of Christopher Wallace's children C.J. and T'yanna. B.I.G. will also appear in the cartoon -- as a "spirit" who comes back to help his kids run a Brooklyn music studio. Read More...

The Mexican wrestling league Lucha Libre AAA has just inked a deal, according to The Hollywood Reporter, to expand its franchise "through live events and sponsorship, pay-per-view television, scripted and nonscripted series, licensing and merchandise."

That roughly translates to: everything WWE is doing, plus a cartoon, an "America's Next Big Luchadore" televised competition, a "The Bachelor (but with Lucha Libre)" reality show, and maybe a scripted TV series where Lucha Libre are like the A-Team. Read More...

"Justice League of America" #1 topped the comic book charts for February -- but its spin-off titles "Katana" and "Justice League of America's Vibe" tanked, with positions in the top 100 of #80 and #78, respectively.

What exactly happened, here? Didn't the "bounce" of tying into such a mega-seller as "JLoA" give these two solo titles somewhat of a "halo" effect? It's not like they were neglected PR-wise -- both "Katana" and "Vibe" were heavily promoted by DC Comics.

Is it that comic book fans just don't have the patience to plunk down $3 or more for a solo character that doesn't have a "Bat" or an "X" attached to it? Read More...

There has been much ado about Marvel's "Unlimited" digital comics program at SXSW over the weekend. From the official press release:

"Marvel Unlimited provides the deepest online reading experience utilizing Marvel’s patented digital reading technology while providing seamless access via iPhone, iPad or iPod touch or web-browser. Now you can truly enjoy your favorite comics anytime, anywhere!"

But where does that leave a digital comics site like comiXology? Doesn't this huge digital initiative by Marvel eat into comiXology's revenue -- not to mention the latter's reputation as the "one-stop-shop" for digital comics? Read More...

Okay, maybe they aren't exactly dressed as the X-Men. But Bluewater Productions has described this "variant cover" to their comic "FAME: One Direction" #2 as an "X-Men Homage," specifically riffing on the cover to "Giant-Size X-Men" #1: Read More...
