Created by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett, Tank Girl started in a Fanzine as an ad with the simple caption “She’ll break your back and your balls!” and ended up in the debut issue of Deadline magazine in her own strip in 1988. The strip continued to have a spot in the mag until it’s end in 1995. This trash talking, shoot first–never mind the questions, nose picking, vulgar wild child developed a More >
With just over 3 months until How To Train Your Dragon makes it back to the big screen for its long awaited sequel, fans are clamoring for any more footage they can get of everyone’s favorite dragon riders. Thankfully Dreamworks has responded with their third trailer. It’s been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snoutlout, and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new More >
It’s April 1st here in America, but it was first April 1st in Japan where Google officially announced their newest job opening. A Google job is a highly coveted career choice, allowing you to work for one of the top companies in the world. Hell, they made a movie about how awesome it was to work at Google, even if the movie itself wasn’t very awesome. But this job is special, and many of you have been training for it for years. Some of you might even have left your homes behind at the young age of 10 to adventure out More >
Right on the heels of this weekend’s spectacular Walking Dead Season Finale, Image Comics and DC Comics announced a major company crossover, Batman and The Walking Dead! In the vein of Marvel’s Invincible/Spider-man crossover in Marvel Team-Up #14, Robert Kirkman will be writing a major crossover mini-series wherein Batman must go up against zombies in Gotham City. We first saw a hint of this with the above teaser at this weekend’s Emerald City Comic Con, but editors and creators on panel kept their lips tight (albeit smiling) about what it meant. Now we know and I don’t think fans could More >
In many modern action and adventure films it is not uncommon to find a few dead bodies on set, covered in make up to add to the gravity of a scene. But it is rather uncommon to come across a real corpse on your set while preparing to shoot a scene. Unfortunately for all parties that happened today on the set of Avengers 2, currently filming in Seoul, Korea. Joss Whedon was preparing to film on Mapo Bridge, a major bridge with high traffic that crosses over the Han River in Seoul. This bridge also has a sad reputation for More >
One of the more unique geeky crossovers is that of comic fans and stamp collectors. For years the greatest comic characters have found their way on to collectable US Postal Service stamps and collectors have gone crazy gathering and displaying them. They’re certainly quite awesome collectables and great fun to see on a new package or letter in the case that someone actually uses them for shipping. But what if the USPS had other great comic products that were guaranteed to see use beyond collecting, so that comic fans might be even more surprised when they received a letter or More >
It is almost upon us, the first Saturday of May, which means FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Perhaps the best day of the year, and certain considered such by famed comic actor, Jason Mewes. Previously Jason’s acting buddy and director friend, Kevin Smith, narrated a Free Comic Book Day ad to promote the event, and now Mewes is getting involved in a video that definitely seems in the style we all likely know to be his. He joins a long list of celebrities endorsing the event who include Stan Lee, Hugh Jackman, and Brian Michael Bendis. This year’s FCBD features over 60 More >
The current storyline of The Walking Dead Comics is set to shake up life as we know it for the crew we’ve been following for the past 120+ issues. In fact, this week’s release has me on the edge of my seat waiting for what could possibly come next. This is only compounded by the frightful and exciting solicits for issue #127 of The Walking Dead, which appears to have a new cast that might lead into the upcoming Walking Dead spin-off TV series. But you say you haven’t read Walking Dead? You’re maybe interested, only have a few volumes, More >
Living in places like Chicago, London, Los Angeles, or New York City you might be used to filming being done in your major metropolitan area, causing temporary road closure, traffic, and the inability to use certain public or private areas. It’s a cost citizens of those areas just have to pay to see their city get blown apart or ripped through by epic action and adventure films (it is admittedly rare that romantic comedies lock down a street for multiple days…but then again it has happened). As Marvel Studios big new film, Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, begins filming in More >
DC’s new Earth One series of original graphic novels have been a successful surprise in reviving classic DC comic characters in a more modern style by top tier comic creators. So far they have released Superman: Earth One by J. Michael Staczynski (Thor, Superman) and Shane Davis, and Batman: Earth One by Geoff Johns (Justice League, Aquaman) and Gary Frank (Action Comics, Justice League). With Wonder Woman: Earth One on the way from Grant Morrison (Final Crisis, Batman & Robin) and Yanick Paquette (Swamp Thing, Ultimate X-Men), now titled Wonder Woman: The Trial of Diana Prince, fans have been quite More >
