Invincible - very underrated!

So Invincible is probably the most underrated book that Image produces. For us it's never been a big seller which is a shame cause it's such a great book. The concept is that young Mark Grayson is your typical teenager, just trying to get though school, relationships and well...his father is also the most powerful superhero on the planet (think superman). So what happens when Mark starts to develop he's gotta live up to expectations. It's very ultimate spider-man meets smallville but with the Image twist. So we see him dealing with alot more dangerous and twisted stuff that won't be seen in kid friendly books like spider-man and superman.

Be sure to check the book out in TPB or Hardcover when you get the chance! They just wrapped up a company wide crossover that is completely contained in issue #60 if you wanted a taste of what's going down.

Spoiler ALERT (stop reading if your already going to pick it up!):

Need more? well there's a twist in the first couple story arcs...he father is actually sent to conquer earth!!! and Invincible is not down with that so it leads to a very epic showdown between father and son!

TMNT vol. 1 back to print!

So Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the ORIGINAL series is going back to print July 2009! why is this important??!? cause the original turtles were badass! they aren't the fluffy fuzzy kid friendly 80s turtles that we all know (and still love) from the TV series, these were the badass samurai straight up killing dudes turtles. The vol 1 TPB will reprint the first 11 issues which you should know are near impossible to find in single issues!

You may or may not know he's taken Wolverines place in Norman Osbornes "fake" avengers, so this will expolre what else he is up to. Written by Daniel Way (Deadpool) and Marjorie Liu (NYX) and art by one of my new favs Giuseppe Camuncoli who you may remember from X-Infernus mini series.

TF: All Hail Megatron extended by 4 issues!

Hey guys, dunno if you've heard me rave a bout this book yet, but it's pretty fun! It's probably the best work IDW has done with the license thus far and it's now been extended from it's original 12 issue run up to 16 issues.

Those of you not familiar with the title it's goes as such: The autobots had urgent business to attend to in space so they up and left!! This left Megatron and the gang a full year to run amok on earth before they returned to try and set things right. Also in the series an Autobot betrays Prime, and it's well known autobot!

Check it out, they are currently on issue 10 and there is a TPB for the first 6 issues out now.

Wolverine Weapon X - read it!

Hey ya'll reading Wolverine Weapon X?! if your not...then what are you waiting for!!

I've always loved Jason Aaron's take on current Ghost Rider, and i must say he's doing a pretty good job on this new wolverine ongoing series...also art by Ron Garney dosen't hurt!

the skinny:
someone has stolen the Weapon X files...and instead of creating one killing machine they've created an entire team! what's that mean for wolverine? well according to wolvie "A whole lot of killin' that needs to be done." The story is called The Adamantium Men and it'll run for 5 issues...issue one even has a preview of the new Ghost Riders: Heaven's on Fire #1

Immortal Weapons!

Have you been reading iron fist? if you haven't...what are you waiting for!! if you have then you probably remember the wicked ass mortal kombat style tournament they had...and you probably wanted to know more about each of the fighters...well now you don't have to wonder.

This July 2009 begins the Immortal Weapons series that will detail each of the fighters origins!

written by one of my current favorite marvel writhers Jason Aaron (wolverine weapon x, ghost rider) and Duane Swierczynski (back up story), with art by Mico Suayan and Travel Foreman

Cyberforce is back!

Dunno about you guys, but i grew up in the Image/Wildstorm days. Back then it was all about HOT art with all these new young talents coming it's cool to see something like that happening again, but now we've got great writers to go along with the art. So of course i was glad to hear that Mark Waid and Kenneth Rocafort are bringing back some old friends this coming July with Cyberforce/Hunter Killer. You may know kenneth Rocafort from his Astonishing Tales series from marvel (he did the wolverine/punisher story)

Terminator Salvation Reviews in...not good?!

So the terminator salvation reviews are in...and for the most part they ain't kind. Well you know what? i don't care, i'm going to see it anywayz, and i'll probably still enjoy it. I actually enjoyed 3 in theatres so whatever!

Turns out DC has decided to distribute the Hot Toys Terminator Salvation line (well one of them anyways) along with their Batman line. But i was totally unimpressed when i saw the image of the new T-600 in the latest previews i decided to look it up on the web...and low and behold that...well DC should fire whoever took the images for their listing in the previews mag, cause those pics suck! check these out taken from a recent toy show

yes...that is push button light up head!! no word yet on if their bringing out the rest of the line which includes a few other T models, John conner and Marcus Wright.

The figure supposedly ships on December 2nd from DC, and will be $225US (yeah it's a bigger figure and their usual size)
