Review: Super Sikh and the Atma Defenders #0

Super Sikh and the Atma Defenders #0

Super Sikh and the Atma Defenders, created by Jai Nitz with the artistic team of Jethro Morales and Marie Enger, offers something familiar but unique. The Story Imagine a story that works between the state of reality and deep reality. Raj the protagonist, is your average, everyday American Sikh. He sports a Chicago Cubs baseball cap and lives at home with his family. But when he’s not living this ordinary, average life, he’s doing battle on a deeper plane of existence with the death embodiment of Kaal who is supported by Kaam (Lust), Krobh (Anger), Lobh (Greed), Moh (Attachment), and … Continue reading

Star Trek Beyond Trailer Crashes Down on the Internet

Enterprise-Beyond

Paramount Pictures has released the official version of the Star Trek Beyond trailer. You didn’t come here to just read about it, so here it is. Earlier today, the German language version of the trailer had leaked out to the internet, so Paramount went ahead and put the official one out, just days before it was slated to appear in theaters before the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Which is also reported to have the first Captain America: Civil War, the third Batman v Superman, and an exclusive Deadpool trailer, attached to the IMAX version) This is certainly not … Continue reading

They’re Coming Back! – Independence Day: Resurgance

id4

  We knew this day was coming.   For 20 years. They’ve come back. Independence Day was a huge hit, it was classic 1950s B-movie alien invasion story, with state of the art special effects, and a talented cast, including a Fresh Prince, on his way to becoming one of the biggest stars in the world. Will Smith‘s Captain Steve Hiller won’t be returning to save the day again, but there are plenty of familiar faces, like former fighter pilot and President of the United States Thomas Whitmore (Bill Pullman), and computer genius David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) showing up in this … Continue reading

Toe Tag Riot Bridges Comics and Music in Alternative Press

Toe Tag Riot

Writer Matt Miner and artist Sean Von Gorman’s Toe Tag Riot, available through Black Mask Studios, may be the best example of blending comics and music to date. It also comes at a time when comic and music fans are starting to recognize their kinship, a connection that goes as far back as Big Brother and the Holding Company’s Cheap Thrills album cover drawn by legend R. Crumb or Paul McCartney giving Jack Kirby some props with Magneto and Titanium Man. Toe Tag Riot managed to gain the notice of music magazine Alternative Press with an interview in the October … Continue reading

Imperium: A Comic Built Around the Paradox of a Utopian Nightmare

Imperium

Joshua Dysart writes one comic title per month – Valiant Comics’ Imperium. For established writers with his track record, that is unusual, and Dysart is not want for work. He’s simply focusing on writing only one title a month so he can produce the best story within him, and it shows with the sophistication and appeal of Imperium. For the uninitiated it’s focused on Toyo Harada, potentially the most powerful character in the Valiant Universe with his abilities to hack minds, control people, and manipulate matter at will. There are few limitations to his abilities, which have created the perfect … Continue reading

Geek Out With “Spartacus” On Netflix

Spartacus Blood and Glory

It’s always been a mystery to me why, in an era of increasing shock value and excessive explicit material on television, the Starz series Spartacus was so overlooked by mainstream audiences. Sure, it never had the built-in audience of Game Of Thrones (which of course is based on a book series) or the easy accessibility of House Of Cards (a Netflix original), but Spartacus had many of the same attributes that have kept shows like these so popular for years now. There was reckless ambition, sudden death, sex appeal and nonstop political scheming. In many respects, it was the perfect … Continue reading

Star Trekkin’ in to a New Series (but not where you think)

TREK

This morning news broke out via Deadline that CBS was about to announce a new Star Trek TV series. Fans didn’t have to wait long, as the Tiffany Network just announced this afternoon  the first details about the developing series. The new, as yet in subtitled, Star Trek spin off is expected to premiere in January 2017.  It will even receive a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network (perhaps following a 2017 NFL Playoff game?). but after that, fans will have to look a little harder to find the show. It will move to CBS All Access, the … Continue reading

IMG_5952

No point writing much here, you’re not reading it.  You just want to see the 2+ minutes of new Star Wars goodness.  So here it is.  So much to be excited about, but almost 2 months to wait!  But if you’re the kind of person who knows they have to see it first, you’re in luck. Ticket sales for the sequel also went live today, just after the spot aired during tonight’s  Giants/Eagles game on ESPN  (a nice bit of corporate synergy from the Mouse House).  What do you think?   Is the Force strong with this one?
