Joey Spiotto's High Fidelity

Joey Spiotto is one of our favorite pop culture artists. We’ve featured his work countless times over the years, from contributions he has made to various gallery shows to his own ongoing Storytime art shows turning your favorite movies and TV shows into Golden Books. In fact, his Storytime shows were so popular that he collected dozens of them into a book last year, and all of his fans helped fund the project to make it happen.

Now Joey Spiotto needs out help again as he sets out to collect all of the artwork from his ongoing High Fidelity series into a new book. Similar to his Storytime artwork, this series features adorable illustrations of familiar movies and TV shows, but presented in the style of album artwork vintage children’s records, creating bands based on the likes of Back to the Future, Stranger Things, Firefly, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Ghostbusters and more. Find out how you can help fund this project and get your own book after the jump. Read More »

Star Wars novels

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, an edict came down from on high: every Star Wars-related product that the company produced moving forward would be canonical, from coloring books to video games to comics and beyond. We already saw how some of the books influenced the script for The Force Awakens, but now we know how a whole new set of Star Wars novels will connect to the events of Rian Johnson‘s upcoming movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters Crossover Sequel

Though everyone is excited about all the panels for blockbuster movies and sci-fi and fantasy TV shows at San Diego Comic-Con, there’s plenty more that happens at the massive pop culture convention, and we took the time to cover a much smaller panel that deserves your attention as well.

IDW Publishing hosted a panel for their Ghostbusters 101 comic book (which I talked about in The Water Cooler recently), and with it came some interesting announcements about the future of Ghostbusters not only on the page, but on toy shelves as well. Along with a crossover sequel reuniting the Ghostbusters with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there is a new line of Playmates figures featuring the Ghostbusters as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…or maybe vice versa.

marvel on comixology unlimited

It’s been almost a year since Comixology announced they would be offering an all-you-can-eat Netflix-style option for their comic books subscription service. We wrote about it last May, and I have been a paying member of the service since then. The biggest notable exclusion from the service was Marvel comics, who offer their own subscription service, Marvel Unlimited.

But today, it was announced that Marvel Comics is finally joining the Comixology Unlimited fold.

Kong Skull Island Comic Book

This week brings the release of Skull Island: The Birth of Kong, a prequel comic that keys us into some of the events that happened before last month’s Kong: Skull Island. Since the new movie focusing on the giant ape just throws us into the mythic world of the island filled with monsters with little to no backstory, of course there’s a prequel story to be told that lets us know how Kong became king.

We live in a world where comic books have their trailers now, and the Kong Skull Island comic book trailer reveals some of the artwork that we’ll find in the pages of the comic that expands the mythology of what is being called Warner Bros.’ MonsterVerse. Watch the trailer below to see what’s in store. Read More »
