Look, the holiday season isn’t going to be nearly as joyous as we’d like it to be. Thanks to the continued spread of the coronavirus, it won’t be a good idea to have any massive family gathers, especially in the heart of regular flu season. That’s why it might be a good idea to stock up on some massive 3,000-piece jigsaw puzzles featuring iconography from the likes of The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Marvel, DC Comics and more. Check them out below. Read More »
While there are plenty of apps available out there that make it easy to download and read comic books on our computers, tablets and phones, the one downside to comic subscription services is that the digital versions of new comics aren’t available as soon as they’re released in comic shops and bookstores. But the comic subscription service Marvel Unlimited has just cut the wait in half by making new comic books available for download just three months after they hit shelves. Read More »
San Diego Comic-Con is nearly upon us, albeit in the form of a virtual convention dubbed Comic-Con at Home. There won’t be a show floor for fans to pick up merchandise from their favorite vendor booths, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to fight against hordes of fans trying to get their hands on the latest exclusive collectibles created just for Comic-Con. In fact, we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at some of the upcoming offerings from Mondo.
This year, Mondo is expanding their ever-growing line of collectible Tiki Mugs. Since these are Comic-Con exclusives, it only makes sense that Marvel Comics characters are getting the Tiki Mug treatment. Venom, Thanos and MODOK are all getting special glaze color variant Tiki Mugs. But that’s not all, because Mondo is also releasing the latest figure in their Masters of the Universe MOTUbi line, with Mer-Man joining the collection. Check out some Mondo 2020 Comic-Con exclusives below. Read More »

During the heyday of ABC’s Lost, actor Paul Scheer (The League, Black Monday) was such a fan of the show that he became the go-to host for events surrounding the mystery series. (He was on the ground floor during the launch of the Lost art show which catapulted Gallery1988 to fame.) Now Scheer is hosting a brand new digital series called The World’s Greatest Book Club for Marvel Comics, and he’s cashed in on that long-time fandom and landed Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof as the show’s first guest. Check out the debut episode below. Read More »

Face front, true believers: there’s a new Spider-Man movie in theaters. At twenty-three films and counting, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been going on long enough now that it has its own history and needn’t be a slave to comics history (not that it ever was). Reviews have nonetheless pegged Spider-Man: Far from Home as one of the more comic book-y entries in the MCU.
While it strays from its source material in some notable ways, leaning into a more tech-friendly interpretation of the Spider-Man mythos, there are a number of plot points in the film that do draw from Marvel Comics tradition. Sometimes they’re just subtle nods, Easter eggs for eagle-eyed comic readers to spot. Other times, having knowledge of movie and comics history may be essential for understanding the significance of certain moments, including those that we see play out in the requisite mid-credits scene and post-credits scene.
If anything left you scratching your head in Spider-Man: Far from Home, or you just want to have a deeper appreciation for the layers of history behind the web-slinger’s Old-World summer adventure in Europe, then don your best fishbowl helmet and let’s take a spoiler-filled dive into those right now.
