I have been sitting on this one for a little bit as I didn’t know what to make of it. The Muslim Ms. Marvel had a bit of a buzz when the final issue of Kelly Sue Deconnick’s series introduced her. Then the Marvel point one issue came out a week ago. This was her first full appearance. Then his article from Vibe came out. Continue reading “New Ms Marvel generating buzz”
Kind if comic book related, a great flip if it worker out. Walmart had advertised ‘The Wolverine’ on Blu-ray for $3.96 on Thanksgiving evening. However, they used the wrong picture. Instead of it being the correct, albeit, horrible x-Men Wolverine Origins, they advertised ‘The Wolverine’, the new Hugh Jackman film. Walmart has been plagued with errors lately and refuse to honor their own ad.
Left one off the list in my tiredness of getting the post out last night. All Crime #2 comes out tomorrow. The first issue had a tiny print run and sold out quickly.

Wow, imagine Lone Wolf and Cub meets John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing.’ I just read the teaser, which will be only up for one week and it looks fantastic. I love Justin Jordan’s ‘Luther Strode’ and have read his other books, but this new horror series looks fantastic. The promo was available at NYCC and only 250 copies were available. No copies appeared on eBay and a search on Google turned up nothing. This could be one of those books that heats up and everyone is looking for.
The response to the signed books was overwhelming and I sold through the batch I had signed by Kurtis Wiebe (Peter Panzerfaust) and Roc Upchurch. People have been asking me if they are still available. Third Eye Comics, the store that hosted the event, has made available to me and the blog readers, signed copies they had gotten. If you do buy it now, the books are $14.95 shipped for the first copy and $10 each additional copy. Please wait to be invoiced so you get the discount. Mke sure you mention the blog when you request an invoice for 1 or more copies.
With Arrow, Smallville, a Flash show on the way, as well as a Gotham Gordon show coming out, people are looking to jump on the DC comics band wagon. Constantine may be coming from NBC
One to keep an eye one. This was released from comic book resources. Boom’s Unthinkable being developed for a 1 hour Fox TV show.
I am occasionally asked to write on Pop-Culture events for my local newspaper. The articles also run at the Examiner.com. Here is the latest one in reference to DC’s Villains month 3d covers.
