The New Marvel is a series that looks at the changes that the mega-comic empire made following the events of Avengers vs. X-Men and the impact that those changes have on the stories of Marvel NOW! Six issues (or more) into each Marvel NOW! title, we see what our favorite characters are up to and what to keep an eye out for in the future.
He’s the best at what he does: mutant warrior, world-class hunter, and the Earth’s greatest . . .teacher? Following the splinter from Cyclops’ Utopian faction, Wolverine set up another school, believing in the tenants that Charles Xavier bestowed upon him and his fellow X-Men. But, in the wake of the world-changing war between the Avengers and his fellow mutants, this man finds himself trying to come to terms with the possible death of one of his students, becoming a leader amongst the X-Men, and trying to keep fanatics from destroying his school. He’s Wolverine, and these are his X-Men.
I think we know where Disney is spending all of that Avengers money. Even after recently acquiring LucasFilm for $4 billion (Imagine the number of red, plaid shirts George can buy with that!), the $4 million per 30 seconds ad rate for Sunday’s game isn’t slowing Disney down at all. We knew they’d be showing commercials for Oz and The Lone Ranger. Now, we know that Tony Stark is on deck, as well.

More often than not, Kickstarter campaigns for independent comic books take time to build steam before reaching their crowdfunding goal. While some campaigns seem to capture magic in a bottle, reaching their fundraising goal (and beyond!) in a matter of mere days, this occurrence remains a rarity. For this reason, the Fanboy Comics staff was intrigued and impressed by the upcoming comic book series Flesh of White, published by indie publisher Inverse Press. With just over a week remaining in their Kickstarter campaign, the creators behind Flesh of White have already surpassed their goal, but they need your help to reach their exciting, new stretch goals!
That was kind of a buzzkill.
After roaring out of the gate with three stellar outings of the new Justified season, showrunner Graham Yost and company take their collective foot off the gas this week. It’s not uncommon for this to happen, as past seasons have featured more stand-alone episodes until the more serialized stuff comes in the back half of the season.
Geek Love, it's a beautiful thing and so difficult to find as not everyone lucks out with a chance meeting at a convention that blossoms into romance. Ryan Glitch's sci-fi speed dating presents a new opportunity to meet fellow convention-attending geeks in the hopes of finding someone to connect with. Following on the heels of the Geek Love one-hour special in 2012, the new web series of Geek Love features nine 10-minute episodes that focus on a particular geek as she or he gives sci-fi speed dating a try.
At the Paley Center premiere of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2, the Fanboy Comics crew talks with director Jay Oliva about what it's like directing an animated feature, the challenges of bringing Frank Miller's classic story to life, and his work with Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan on Man of Steel.
Comics, delicious grilled cheese sandwiches, and helping those in need. All good things, right? For those in the Los Angeles area, you will have the chance to partake in all three this Wednesday, January 30th, at 6 p.m., when Hawkeye writer Matt Fraction will be signing copies of Hawkeye #7 at House of Secrets in Burbank, CA.
While comic book fans will have the chance to meet the Marvel Comics writer and snag a signed copy of Hawkeye #7, House of Secrets will also have an amazing food truck on hand to serve hungry patrons with the most delicious variety of grilled cheese sandwiches (and tater tots!) that you can imagine! In addition, the Red Cross will be in attendance accepting donations to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
I recently got the opportunity to read the upcoming Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time #1, and I can tell you that it is great. If you are a fan of Doctor Who, then this is one you should check out. In this issue, the first Doctor, Vicki, Barbara, and Ian (some of the first companions) travel to London in 1868. Their intention is to attend a lecture by Thomas Huxley, who earned the nickname Darwin’s Bulldog for his staunch defense of the theory of evolution, but things go predictably awry.
This is nearly everything that I want in a one-shot. It is funny. It doesn’t connect to any mythology that I need to know. There are also robots, zombies, aliens, and puns. There is also a8tge34piahqetaeth
Sorry, but something just bit me.
