SDCC '15: The Security-Heavy Marvel Unlimited Plus Member Event

By Joshua Stone So, this wasn't what I was expecting. I am signed up for the Marvel Unlimited Plus membership, and besides having access to almost all of Marvel's digital library and just having to wait six months to read the new books, Marvel sometimes has special events that they invite members to attend. Back […]

SDCC '15: Quick Draw Panel With Sergio Aragones, Mark Evanier, And More

By Joshua Stone The annual Quick Draw panel at SDCC is always one of my favorites, and that is for two reasons – Sergio Aragones and Mark Evanier. Aragones can draw anything and make it funny and have it done faster than you can blink. He and Evanier's banter is always fun and it is […]

By Joshua Stone This panel brought together a group of Image creators whose work doesn't necessarily reside in the world of capes and tights. Fan favorite Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals, Kaptara), may have been the big draw but the rest of the panel more than held their own with Kody Chamberlin (Punks), Keenan Marshall Keller (The Humans), Marjorie Liu (Monstress), Alex Grecian (Rasputin), and Michael […]

SDCC '15: Star Wars Goes To The Dogs With Petco Range Of Toys And Costumes

SDCC '15: Marvel Talk About Their Strategy For Upcoming Console Games

Marvel games are somewhat of a mixed bag. Marvel Heroes is a fine free-to-play experience and Disney Infinity 2.0 is a great toys-to-life franchise, but in terms of console games or hardcore successes like DC's Arkham series, Marvel have lagged significantly behind. The company is working on changing that. Earlier this year Marvel spoke about this new initiative […]

By Abdulkareem Baba Aminu When I signed up for the panel called Focus on Jim Lee, it was for two reasons. First, of course, is the professional one, to report it, as he's one of the greatest comicbook artists alive, and with very good reason. The second one is that, simply, he is one of […]

SDCC '15: Scooby Doo! And KISS: Rock And Roll Mystery Premiere Impressions

I was at the world premiere of Scooby Doo and Kiss: A Rock and Roll Mystery ("SDKRRM"). NO SPOILERS. Except that the main villain would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those meddling kids. Whether it be Simpsons and Futurama or Jetsons and Flintstones, everybody loves a good crossover. There's something satisfying about […]
