With "Iron Man 3" coming out this weekend, you might be thinking of heading to the theater in your best Tony Stark get up. Well, there’s so much that could go right, but just as much that could go wrong. While all these are super attempts, not all are superheroic. We’ll start with the good news to ease the pain that’s coming with the bad.
Shotaro Ishinomori's "Cyborg 009" is back with an all-new English-language comic from Archaia, co-written by F.J. DeSanto and Bradley Cramp. The 60's manga would later spawn multiple animated series and feature films (most recently last year's "009: Re Cyborg"). But this is your chance to discover the characters of "Cyborg 009" from the very beginning.
Today, the book's publisher is releasing "Cyborg 009: Chapter 000," a one dollar comic introducing you to the nine ordinary humans forced into become cyborg weapons--and we've got a preview featuring commentary from the book's writers, artists, and editor Stephen Christy.
The first thing you should probably know is that "Quantum & Woody," the "world's worst superhero team" Valiant Comics is rebooting this summer with writer James Asmus ("The End Times of Bram and Ben") and artist Tom Fowler ("Venom," "Mysterius the Unfathomable"), have a sidekick who is a goat.
Eddard Stark wonders what he should be doing now that he knows Cersei Lannister's dirty little secret in "Game of Thrones" #14. If Eddard continues to withhold the truth any longer, he risks putting the lives of his two innocent daughters in danger. Eddard is about to learn that when you play the game of thrones, there is no middle ground; you either win or you end up dead.
I’ve seen "Iron Man 3"! Which isn’t quite as special as you might think, since it’s already playing in most of the world that isn’t the good old U.S. of A. But since we haven’t seen it in America, I thought I’d give you ten things to look out for this weekend – and heck, get excited for – in the third adventure of Marvel’s Armored Avenger:
It didn't actually say so on the covers of DC's comics in April -- a stamp that initially said "WTF Certified" wasn't used -- but the entire month was what the publisher dubbed "WTF Month." What did that mean, exactly? It meant all of the company's New 52 titles shipped with gatefold covers, the inside part of which was supposed to contain some sort of surprise that tied into the story within.
Some of 'em worked. A bunch of 'em didn't.
I didn't read every title that came out of DC in April, but I read a good many (namely, the 19 the publisher sent review copies of to the press) and I found that you could pretty easily place a lot of the month's covers into one of four categories, ranging from total fakeouts that had essentially nothing to do with the comics inside to out-and-out spoilers of last-page reveals.
So, below, I've funneled my DC sampling from the month into those four piles. (And you should be warned that spoilers for the comics of April are to follow. If you haven't read them, beware.)
In order to save the world, Spider-Man, Thor, Hulk, and Wolverine have to team-up together against their common enemy. But what makes this different than the comics and movies you've seen before? This time around, they've been turned into blocky little LEGO guys! Check out the teaser trailer to "LEGO Marvel Super Heroes" right here!
Need something to chuck on for a midnight screening of "Iron Man 3" this week? Well, if you feel up to it, you can certainly wear any of these 5 bonkers costumes. But I'm gonna tell you one thing, you're going to look weird. And scare people.
But if you want to wear one, you can get it by clicking the link above each image.
