superman frank miller

30 years ago, writer Frank Miller and artist David Mazzucchelli explored the earliest days of the Caped Crusader in Batman: Year One. This storyline has since become the go-to origin tale for the character, heavily inspiring other comic creators and Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins. Now, Miller is looking to do the same for another iconic DC superhero. At Comic-Con 2017, Miller revealed that he’s set to tackle Superman: Year One.

marvel comic con posters

Us plebeians may not have gotten the chance to see the buzzy Avengers: Infinity War footage gifted upon Hall H-ers at San Diego Comic-Con and Mouseketeers at the D23 Expo, but we can make up for it by staring at the newly released Infinity War three-part poster for 10 minutes.

The three-part poster was revealed at Comic-Con on Sunday and gives us our first look at the meet-up between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as the foe they face. Not to be overshadowed is the first Ant-Man and The Wasp poster, also revealed at Comic-Con. Michelle Pfeiffer is going to be in that movie, everyone!

Ken Taylor Guardians of the Galaxy 2

San Diego Comic-Con is officially over and all the attendees are back home with plenty more things than they came to the convention with. Some lucky attendees with enough time to wait in line for an extended period of time went home with the latest artwork from Mondo. Sadly, that means there’s a lot of great artwork that fans stuck at home won’t be able to get their hands on, but there is at least one offering you can take advantage of outside of the massive convention.

Mondo debuted a new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 print at SDCC by artist Ken Taylor, and while one of the editions of that print was only available at their booth, there is a timed edition that you can get your hands on as long as you purchase it in the next few days. Check out the Ken Taylor Guardians of the Galaxy 2 print below and find out how to get one. Read More »

Everyone who enjoyed The LEGO Movie saw the animated building brick world become even bigger with The LEGO Batman Movie earlier this year. Now it will expand into a totally different arena with yet another LEGO branded adventure.

A new trailer debuted during San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, and it has the same humor and creativity as the previous LEGO movies. Watch it below! Read More »

But that’s why we’re here. We’ve got you covered. Here’s what you need to know.

The Avengers Infinity War footage

Note: The Avengers: Infinity War footage that played at Comic-Con (and brought down the house) was the same footage that we previously saw at D23. Because of that, we are bumping our old post, just in case you missed it the first time. In Hall H, in front of a crowd of 7,000 eager fans, this footage killed. We have also added additional details that we noticed on this second viewing.

The original post follows. Just mentally replace “D23” with “Comic-Con.”

As expected, the live-action films panel at the the 2017 D23 expo concluded with a first look at the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.
