Ok so this might be a new segment among the regular bits and pieces of blogs i write here and there. I want to start up a weekly news segment for new comic day which we all know of course is today. It seems the comic world goes from wednesday to wednesday. So therefore we shall follow said logic. Anyhoo on with the news!
DC: There is a bit of news going on with DC comics. There is a fighting game in the works that will pit DC heros against DC Villains against DC Gods. it’s called Injustice: Gods Among Us. From what I can see of it, It looks pretty neat. Kinda Mortal Kombaty. With a release date of 2013 I would assume DC and NetherRealm Studios should be able to work the kinks out.
Also you need to watch out for the Before The Watchmen Mini series. It will go through all of the watchmen and see original exploits and events leading up to the movie. Look for it at your local Comic Shop.
In final DC news there are rumors that by 2014 we might be seeing a Justice League movie. With the Avengers movie breaking records I would assume that DC lit a fire under their writers tales and got them working again. I know I’m hard on DC but I do it because I know they can do better. They just need a bit of prodding. With rumors of the screen play being written and a possible release date lets just hope that they find the time to put into some singular hero movies besides batman to set up for the Justice League. Marvel did an excellent job at intertwining the movies together to make the Avengers movie make sense. For some reason the idea of Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Batman, The Flash, The Green Lantern and The Martian Man Hunter sitting around a giant table at the beginning of the movie just doesn’t sit well with me. And if they had any sense they would at least pay homage to the old cartoons and have someone say Meanwhile at the hall of justice.
In marvel News: Captain America was at the opening of National Association of Drug Courts Professionals annual training conference. Kick starting the conference which is which addressed the topics of addictions, mental health and the criminal justice system. To find more information on this you can go here and read the article: http://marvel.com/news/story/18845/captain_america_appears_for_siemens In Upcoming events at the American Association of Clinical Chemistry there will be a visit by Ironman.
Also in Marvel news the fight between The Avengers and The X-men is going into the fifth round of fights and is overshadowed by the burning light of The Pheonix.
In final major news this week, Howard The Duck will be venturing into his 25th anniversary and the fact that no one remembers him as the first Marvel hero to hit the big screen has him angry. Alas I remember you Howard..I remember.
IDW has some interesting news this week. The much anticipated crossover for Doctor Who and Star Trek has sold out of #1’s that even I couldn’t have gotten a copy. Hopefully that will change soon. Tarzan of The Apes will be making its appearance this september and for all of my gothy and dark nerds like myself out there we all loved The Crow right? Well there will be a new series with IDW for a new Crow comic book coming out this summer. So look for that.
And in this week in comics Dynamite has begun the Prophecy cross over for Vampirella, Dracula and Red Sonja. Who knows what other heros might make it into the series. Sherlock Holmes and Watson are the first you see so I am more then sure we will be seeing them again. Bionic woman also makes her appearance into Dynamite’s arsenal of femme fatales.
In upcoming review news be sure to look for Prophecy, Extermination, Avengers Assemble, Haunt and quite a bit more.
