Anime & Comics – Sorry, Hello Kitty fans, but WTF? Some of the Avengers may look prettier than most women, but emulating a Kitty that’s is supposedly not even a cat? Seriously. Hello Kitty Avengers? I can’t wrap my head around it. I think it’s exploded because of this travesty. So was I overreacting, or am I justified? You […]
Games – The Avengers in 8-bit. That general topic is not new. We’ve seen The Avengers in 8-bit before, but what if there was an 8-bit Avengers video game??? I know many of you would play that in a heartbeat, but unfortunately, no one has gotten around to developing that kind of awesomeness yet; at least not […]
Anime & Comics – There was a time not too long ago where if you wanted to get a comic book you had to go to the comic book store and wade through box after box of issues until you found the one you were looking for. While there’s a feeling of reality and nostalgia to think that this […]
Anime & Comics – Going all the way back to when Stan Lee ran the promotional arm of Marvel, fans knew that if there’s one thing they did well, it was engaging the fans. They know how to get fans excited about their characters, their stories, and their creators. That’s why every year at San Diego Comic-Con, the Marvel […]
Anime & Comics – We couldn’t let go of this cool list of Adventure Time and the Avengers mashups compiled by Nerd Approved. We noticed a trend though. Is there something about Thor that makes artists instantly think “This is so Jake”? Whatever it is, we’re liking what we’re seeing. Jake-slash-Thor by Mathieu Parent Jake and Thor by Nelson Flores LSP and […]
Anime & Comics – If ever there would be a time where aspiring to be a groupie would actually become culturally acceptable, my guess is it’s when it would involve superhero rock stars. They already have the talent and skill to do extraordinary things. It’s pretty logical that these extra ‘extras’ would make damn fine musicians. Super artist Andrés Moncayo designed […]
Cool Stuff & Geekery – Got a case of the blues? Maybe you’ve been having a rough week at work. Never fear, the Octopus Avengers are here! Darcy made these super-cute plushies and is currently selling them on Etsy. The little details she adds to the plushies are awesome and I bet it’ll never fail to put a smile on […]
Anime & Comics – Over the long and colorful history of comic books, superhero sidekicks have been almost as ubiquitous as costumes. Once mere stand-ins for the audience and a sounding board for the hero, some sidekicks have even inherited their mentor’s super alter ego. Here are our choices for the six top sidekicks in comics today. Nightwing As […]
Anime & Comics – So now we have seen the big reveal that was unfortunately leaked, and despite the excitement we may have all felt at seeing that image, we know little more now than we did once the news was released. Angela is now in the Marvel universe as a prelude to the timestream having broken as Age of Ultron concludes.
Anime & Comics – A 'revolutionary' announcement, as it reveals DC catching up with technology and style that Marvel has already used and pioneered by many indie creators.
Anime & Comics – Last week we saw the lightning form of the White Event hurtling towards the Earth at the culmination of Avengers #6. I rather wish that I could just stop time right there and take a year or two to imagine just what the effects of this could be on the Marvel Earth. Are we to […]
Games – The hopes and dreams of fanboys and girls everywhere will be fulfilled this Fall, when LEGO Marvel Super Heroes arrives on a console near you.
Anime & Comics – You know when you are excited about something, and that something, when it finally arrives, is somehow everything that was promised, but somehow there’s something missing? It’s all shiny and nearly what you wanted, but just not quite? That’s how I feel about Avengers #1. I want to like it, I really do. After Jonathon […]
Anime & Comics – With Thanos rising once again to prominence in preparation for the next Avengers movie and in the pages of Avengers Assemble, I was led to think just what qualities we need from our headlining villains. After endless crossovers featuring the most recent uber-powerful villain, such as the Chaos King Amatsu-Mikaboshi, or the brother of Odin, […]
Features – The Avengers is the movie of the year, one of the biggest hits of all time, and now a huge bestseller on home video. Check out how some fans celebrate their love of The Avengers and other geeky franchises.
Anime & Comics – Even to the die-hard fan, the Transformers universe can be confusing. Multiple continuities, multiple timelines, all equally valid for their era and each with volumes of material, whether comic or cartoon. Each with their own tone, each adjusted to the ‘new generation’ of readers, of various age ranges. Which can make it difficult to love […]
Anime & Comics – So today is the day we see the conclusion of Avengers Vs X-Men, and we prepare for Marvel’s great relaunch as Marvel Now! At least we are not getting a One Year Later or DCnU style reboot, but a continuation built upon what has passed before. Considering that the aforementioned reboots were DC’s third and […]
Anime & Comics – With all the attention that has been focused on the release of Earth 2, I worry that its companion title World’s Finest has been lost in the noise. If you are old enough to remember the original World’s Finest, it was traditionally the team up title of Batman and Superman, always in some outlandish story […]
Features – If I had this desk, I would actually get out of bed, sit on a chair, and work “like adults are supposed to”. The Avengers working desk is for real, folks, and the guys at Tom Spina designs are the people to thank for it. The Avengers working desk was commissioned by Mark Hall, who […]
