Chuck Palahniuk in Fight Club 2

I’m a huge fan of author Chuck Palahniuk and Fight Club is one of my favorite films of all time. To say I’m excited to see what the comic book sequel brings might be an understatement. I’ve decided to wait and binge read the Fight Club 2 comics after the 10-issue mini series is published in full.

Dark Horse Comics is announcing today that bestselling novelist Chuck Palahniuk will be a character in Issue 3 of the series, on sale July 22nd 2015.

Star Wars: Shattered Empire

What happened in the thirty years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens?  In March, Disney announced they would release a series of books called Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which would fill in that gap through a mix of novels, comics, children’s books and young adult stories (all considered official Star Wars canon).

One of the 20 books which will hit store shelves in December 2015 is a prequel comic book called Star Wars: Shattered Empire. We now have our first official synopsis for Star Wars: Shattered Empire which gives us our first peek at the events which happened after Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and before JJ Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

miles morales spiderman

Its been almost four years since Marvel revealed they would be introducing a half-Black, half-Hispanic Spider-Man named Miles Morales. But the character was part of the Ultimate Marvel Universe, which means that he remained part of a side universe sector of the Marvel Universe, which also included its own version of the classic Peter Parker character. So while it seemed like a huge step forward for diversity in comics, it was also seen as a compromise.

Marvel has now announced that Miles Morales is officially becoming Spider-man in the Marvel Universe, but that doesn’t mean he will be the only Spider-Man in town. Peter Parker is still around, so now we are presented with a universe with two spider-man characters. Will they be able to co-exist in New York City?

And while this is another step forward for Marvel, it seems like we won’t be seeing a black Spider-Man on the big screen anytime soon. Despite Spider-man comic writer Brian Michael Bendis and former Spider-man actor Andrew Garfield both suggesting that the new Marvel/Sony Spider-man should bring Miles Morales to the big screen, Sony seems set on a white Peter Parker as the main character in the series. Maybe that will happen someday too.

Kingsman upgrade

It feels like nearly every week a new Mark Millar property is being turned into a movie. From Wanted to Kick-Ass, through Civil War, Chrononauts, Jupiter’s Legacy and more, there’s always some new development to discuss with the comic writer.

The latest film based on his work, Kingsman: The Secret Service, was just released on Digital HD and Blu-ray/DVD. We spoke to Millar, not so much to look ahead, but to take a deep dive into that project’s transition from page to screen. How is Millar’s vision get reimagined for the big screen? Why are major changes made in the translation?

Then, of course, he told us about some general ideas he’s had about a potential Kingsman 2 and the madness that sees his Marvel story Civil War being made into a movie. Below, read our Kingsman Mark Millar interview.  Read More »
