Superman is Immortal in DC Comics Now

Is Superman immortal?

It’s a question that has followed the comic book character for decades. The last survivor of Krypton, Kal-El gains his strength and invulnerability from the Earth’s yellow sun. He’s in peak physical condition, and ages at a far slower rate than the rest of humanity. But does that translate to immortality?

DC Comics finally answers that question. And fittingly, it’s answered in the 1,000th issue of the comic book where Superman was first introduced: Action Comics.

Ghostbusters Annual 2018

Even though the future of the Ghostbusters franchise on the big screen is uncertain at this point, the paranormal exterminators are enjoying quite a fantastic run in comic book form.

Last year saw the original Ghostbusters from 1984 and the new lady Ghostbusters from 2016 team up for a miniseries called Ghostbusters 101. Now every single iteration of the Ghostbusters, including The Real Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters, will have to work together to stop a new supernatural threat in the new IDW Comics miniseries Ghostbusters: Crossing Over beginning later this month.

Before that, there are some more immediate concerns from the Ghostbusters Annual 2018 comic, and we have an exclusive preview of some of the pages in the forthcoming title that hits shelves this week. Check them out below. Read More »

Rod Serling Planet of the Apes Comic Book

Over the past decade we’ve been lucky enough to experience one of the best sci-fi trilogies in recent memory in the form of the Planet of the Apes prequel franchise that began with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, continued with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and recently concluded (at least for the time being) with War for the Planet of the Apes. But there is one old Planet of the Apes story that we’ve yet to see.

Before Planet of the Apes hit the big screen in 1968, it was first a script written by The Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling that adapted Pierre Boulle’s novel. Instead of being set in a more primitive village, the original story would have unfolded in a modern city filled with apes in a sort of satire of contemporary life. It didn’t move forward in this form because it would have been too expensive, but soon we’ll be able to see the Rod Serling Planet of the Apes script in comic book form. Read More »

Star Wars The Last Jedi Comic Cover

With the marketing push for Solo: A Star Wars Story just around the corner, you might think Star Wars: The Last Jedi will start taking a backseat to the origin story of one of the saga’s most beloved heroes. But you’d be wrong. There is much more from Star Wars: The Last Jedi we’ve yet to see.

Recently we found out the upcoming novelization of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will include some deleted scenes that weren’t in the movie, and even more that won’t be included on the home video release. Now we have word that there will be a Star Wars: The Last Jedi comic book that will also include previously unseen elements of the story. Read More »

back to the future manga

Are you ready to go back to Back to the Future? The beloved 1980s science-fiction trilogy received a modern-day revival of sorts in 2015, when the “future” date that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) traveled to in their DeLorean time machine actually came to pass. For a full year, it was countdown clocks, Marty McFly cosplay, and special screenings of the beloved film. Most importantly, a whole new generation of movie lovers were familiarized with Marty and Doc.

Now, fans can add one more item to their growing collection of Back to the Future paraphernalia. A Back to the Future manga comic book is in the works from One-Punch Man artist, Yuusuke Murata.
