Hurrah! The craziest British drama on TV has been renewed! EPIX's Pennyworth will return next year with a new season! Pennyworth is really a Batman prequel in name only. It appears to be about the story of Alfred Pennyworth in the 1960s long before he became the Wayne family butler. It appears to be about […]
Fans of Philip Pullman's fantasy epic His Dark Materials are getting their first look at the BBC and HBO's mega-budget adaptation with a newly-released teaser trailer. While the preview may be a light on the "dark" and the "materials" (it is a teaser, but a little more would be nice), we do get to see […]
Adi Tantimedh writes, While radio and audio dramas are a lost art in the US slowly being rediscovered by certain pockets of the podcast world, the BBC and Europe never really stopped producing them for the radio for nearly 100 years now. John Dryden is the writer and producer of some of the most ambitious […]
Universal Cable Productions and Benderspink are digging deep into the comic industry bag of tricks to pull out Dreadstar. The Jim Starlin created cosmic space opera is being currently published by Dynamite Entertainment but began its life at the Marvel-owned Epic Comics. Starlin will serve as executive producer and writer on the series. The series […]

Epic Collections Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The New Republic v1 Collecting Star Wars: Mara Jade – By the Emperor's Hand 0-6, Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire – Evolution 1-5, Star Wars: […]
A VIP ticket to a Comic Con is an ultimate luxury item. Costing hundreds, you get preferential treatment, you get decent exclusives, you get to meet a celebrity of your choice, for some it's the only way to do Comic Con. For others its a once in a lifetime opportunity. As it was for Ohio […]
I've had the chance to read a good batch of this year's Free Comic Book Day 2014 titles. Here are thoughts about thirty-one of them. More to come… Grimm's Fairy Tales #0 published by Zenescope. Once upon a time there was a monster of a soldier. But then they went away. Now they are being revived. […]
UPDATE: Marvel's David Gabriel gets in touch to tell us that Comic Shop News misquoted him, and that he never said that the Essentials program was ending. The original story follows below. The most recent issue of freebie comics newsletter Comic Shop News confirms what some had been expecting. The end of the Marvel Comics Essential […]
So we ran a piece on Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning getting their Guardians Of The Galaxy run collected in complete editions. But they aren't the only big books on the way from Marvel. First there's since from the rather thick paperback Epic Collection line… but no, not Groo The Wanderer. More's the pity. Avengers […]
It's painstaking work, to be sure, and fascinating to see how it all comes together.
Tyler James writes for Bleeding Cool: Girls and superheroes. In high school, I spent 90% of my time thinking about one or the other. Now, some 16 years later, a little wiser and a lot less awkward around the ladies — oh, who am I kidding, the only lady I want to be cool around […]

What makes Epic so epic.
There's a brightness and vividity to many of the images in this new trailer for Epic that really pleased my eye. My ear, meanwhile, was overjoyed by every little bit of Christoph Waltz.
A picture for people who like pictures, some words for people who like words.
This seems to be resolved now, but it's still worrisome: Elaine Lee wrote, this morning: "Look, I'll say it now. Kaluta and I, just week before last, received a letter from a Marvel/Disney attorney, challenging our rights to Starstruck, a project that was briefly with Marvel/Epic, supposedly their creator-owned imprint, almost three decades ago.

New trailer from the creators of Ice Age, looks nothing like Ice Age.
Little things hitting each other. That is what I like.
It's Epic, has miniature proportions. Originally titled The Leaf Men, and based on William Joyce's book, Epic is an upcoming animated adventure film from Blue Sky, the makers of the Ice Age films and Rio. This trailer plays like a cross between The Guardians of Ga'Hoole and Avatar (by which I almost mean Ferngully), with […]
An early doubts I had regarding the RED One digital camera evaporated entirely when I saw Steven Soderbergh's Che films, and since that moment I've been a real fan of RED's technology, and of the cinematography we've so far seen delivered with them. Peter Jackson has been a real big supporter of RED and was […]
