Deathlok returns!

for real? yeah apparently! Fan favorite Deathlok will be returning to Marvel in his vary own 7 issue mini-series. Slated to set place in the future where 'Lok will be all on his own (no other marvel U heroes running around) in a world where military combat has become entertainment...very "Running Man". Written by Charlie Huston of Moon Knight fame and hyper realistic artist Lan Medina of Punisher fame, this promises to be marvels premier Sci-Fi book. Word is that the story was written and completed a year ago and that 6 issues will already be in the bag by issue #1 hits...will marvel actually release all issues on time?!?

With characters like Ghost Rider and Punisher carving their own genres i hope this one will be just as good!

What to read after 100 Bulletts? SCALPED!

Hey all, the last TPB of 100 Bullets has hit...and many of you are probably looking for something to read with the same flavor. Are you in luck...because Jason Aaron's Scalped is just for you! It's got that same Noir feel of 100 Bullets and then you add a little Western flavor.

You follow Dashiell Bad Horse who has long left the poverty and pits of his Reservation but now returns 15 years later with a major bad attitude. Trained in Jeet Kune Do (bruce Lee's art) and weilding a set of nunchucks he sets about causing all kinds of ruckus. He finds a new glimmering casino on "the Rez" and it's people overcome by crime and corruption. Has he returned help or just get his peice of the pie??!

Jason Aaron (Ghost Rider, Wolverine: Weapon X) is one of my new favorite writers and art by R.M. Guera has a really good feel to it staying in nice dark brownish earth tones.

check it out! DC even posts the entire 1st issue on their site so you can check it out!

Watchmen on DVD and Bluray

Hey all, watch out cause WATCHMEN is out on DVD and blu-ray this coming Tuesday (July 21st). You'll get your chance to see the brand new DIRECTOR'S CUT!

And if you don't already have a copy of the TPB be sure to get that...cause you probably want to be flipping though as you watch the DVD...and if you've never read it before...then what the heck are you waiting for?!?! GET IT!!

And if you have read watchmen...then i've got a recommendation for you...while you can go the typical route and try more Alan Moore Batman: The Killing Joke...why not try another great book Planetary.
Planetary is a good take on modern super heroes and definitely is worth checking out!

"This graphic novel features the adventures of Elijah Snow, a hundred-year-old man, Jakita Wagner, an extremely powerful woman, and The Drummer, a man with the ability to communicate with machines. Tasked with tracking down evidence of super-human activity, these mystery archaeologists uncover unknown paranormal secrets and histories, such as a World War II supercomputer that can access other universes, a ghostly spirit of vengeance, and a lost island of dying monsters."

Blackest Night begins!

Hey all! Don't miss out on the very first part of Blackest night crossover this week! while it's not the actual Blackest Night #1, it's listed as the prologue to the entire event...and well Green Lantern has just been awesome lately! I'm talking about Green Lantern #43! It'll be GL vs the Black Hand, and you'll see how the whole Black Lanterns get's started!

Also while not listed on the Blackest Night checklist, i would also recommend the latest Green Lantern Corps that came out last week for another nice companion piece. The book as been in Green Lantern's shadow with all the crazyness going on, but it's just as solid a read...if you want to follow up on what Kyle, Guy and all the other GLC are dealing with. Here's a bit of crazyness...they start executing Sinestro Corps!! that's nuts! and you do see the apperance of the Black Lantern Rings at the end! so don't miss out on this one as well!
