There was a movie sequel to David Cronenberg’s incredible 1986 reinvention of The Fly, and now a comic book seeks to another sequel storyline. The Fly: Outbreak is from IDW, and writer Brandon Seifert (writer of BOOM! Studios’ Hellraiser comics) and artist menton3. The comic series is an original story, seemingly not based on Fly sequel ideas Cronenberg was toying with a couple years ago, but possibly related to the film The Fly II. Read More »

If projections hold, Marvel’s 2015 comic book, Star Wars #1, written by Jason Aaron with artwork by John Cassaday, will be the best-selling comic book in the past two decades. Rumor has it a million copies of the book could be sold when it’s released on January 14.
Part of the reason for that is Marvel will be telling a new story about what Luke, Han, Leia and the group did between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back — that’s largely an unexplored few years in Star Wars lore. Another reason is Marvel is going straight Nineties with the variant covers. At least a dozen variant covers of the comic will be released on newsstands, and several retailers have commissioned their own variants to be sold only in their stores, bringing the total over 30! It’s going to be a huge event.
Below, we’ve complied all of the Star Wars 1 variants we’ve found so far. Check them out below. Read More »

Eventually, we’ll see Bill & Ted 3. There are simply too many people who want it and too many of the principals – including Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves – who are more than willing to do the film for it to disappear. Some Hollywood issues still plague the movie’s development, however, so we don’t know when we’ll see Bill & Ted return to the big screen.
They are, however, coming back soon. An editor at Boom! Studios has dropped a not-so-cryptic tease that they’ll be releasing a new Bill and Ted comic book series in the near future. Check it out below.
UPDATE: Boom has released the first images from the comic as well as the writers/artists and plot description.
