For almost 3 years now, the popular Dragon Age games have been building quite the following, and things are sure to only increase with 2013′s Dragon Age III: Inquisition. But Dragon Age has expanded far beyond just video games, with novels, figures, animes, webseries, comics, table top gaming, and more. So how does one keep up with the vast universe of Dragon Age that is now spread over so many mediums? How about a vastly detailed Encyclopedia/Art Book? Well, thanks to the fine folks at Dark Horse and the game’s developers at BioWare, fans will have the chance to purchase More >
DC has just announced their new releases for the new year, and 2013 is looking rather strong. In January, DC will see the conclusion of Death of the Family storyline in the Bat titles and continuation of the Rise of the Third Army event in the Green Lantern books. We’ll also begin to see the final few issues of Before Watchmen and the start of a new Injustice: Gods Among Us comic book tie in to the upcoming video game. January also sees the final issues of Grifter, Legion Lost, Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E., and Blue Beetle. However, Blue Beetle fans need More >

If you didn’t make it to some of Warner Bros television panels this past weekend in New York, you missed out some rather cool footage for upcoming episodes of Arrow and 666 Park Avenue. But don’t fret too much, as we have both reels available below. Pay particular attention to some of the upcoming villains in this season of Arrow.
Next year will be a powerful milestone for Aspen MLT, as the company celebrates its 10th anniversary. Entering 2013, Aspen will have already begun their big Executive Extinction event, running through both the third volume of Executive Assistant: Iris and its accompanying on-going series, Executive Assistant Assassins. January will also see the first book in Aspen’s new line of Aspen Novels, with the adventurous prose novel The Lost Spark by J.T. Krul. And while it will be another month before Aspen starts their magnificent 10 for 10 initiative, which offers 10 new #1 issues for just a $1 a piece, the company More >
I believe it is safe to say that none of us are old enough to remember the initial publication of Winsor McCay’s masterpiece of sequential art, the classic comic strip known as Little Nemo In Slumberland. However, for those of us lucky enough to have ever seen the stunning artwork McCay produced in his series of weekly comic strips from 1905-1927 (with some years of absence), you know his work is something to be celebrated. His art style, incredible paneling, and amazing use of the medium is still widely respected and see attempts at replication to this very day. Winsor More >
While Marvel announced plans to reshape their cosmic line of characters in February and March, DC has beat them to the punch with a new look at the cosmic characters of the DC universe in the New 52. Written by acclaimed comic scribe, Keith Giffen, Threshold will be a new sci-fi epic mini-series spinning out of Green Lantern: The New Guardians Annual #1. Giffen is no stranger to sci-fi epics, having written the classic Legion of Super-heroes tale, The Great Darkness Saga (Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 2 #290-294), and Marvel’s Annihilation. Of course, he is also quite familiar with reshaping the More >
It’s hard to say if the creators of DC were all caught off guard by a camera shoved in their face or they just aren’t certain how they really feel about their main female character. But in this video just posted by DC Entertainment TV, we can see and hear Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Brian Azzarello, and Cliff Chiang awkwardly talk about Wonder Woman. This is a prime example of why you want to script out your promotional works and not put creative types on the spot. The creators all seem hesitant and uneasy as they reach for answers to More >
This weekend Arthur Adams surprised fans by uploading 14 pages of an unpublished Batman series to his facebook. These 14-pages were apparently part of an unreleased issue of All-Star Batman and Robin set to have come out several years ago. The pages are marked as issue #7, though that would have taken place amidst a storyline already in progress from Frank Miller and Jim Lee, so it is presumed either this story was commissioned prior to that issue being written or the issue # could be wrong. What we do know for sure is that Arthur did a stunning job More >
This weekend Marvel has reignited their cosmic line with the announcement and reveals for two new cosmic based books. Since 2010′s Thanos Imperative event there really hasn’t been much activity for the cosmic characters of Marvel outside of 2 Anihilators mini-series and some Fantastic Four storylines. But the void of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning’s Nova and Guadians of the Galaxy series being gone is about to be rectified, as Marvel is bringing back both series.
Nova, which has been talked about since the appearance of the newest Nova in Avengers Vs X-men #1, will be written by Jeph Loeb. This new Nova, named Sam More >
