   After hearing about Joss Whedon’s being brought onboard by Warner Bros. for finishing the JLA movie. Jessica Chobot, of Nerdist News, reported that Scott Snyder had called in Whedon to help with something on the production way before his needed exit.

   This has to be the absolute ultimate version of Logan! I’ve seen it touted as a “Classic” version of Wolverine, but the outfit isn’t the original togs that he donned back in his first appearances in The Incredible Hulk or even in Giant-Sized X-Men. It’s still a sweet looking figure. We’ve all been fooled by looks before, but I’ve heard some great things about Revoltech.

Superman’s New Pal, Don Rickle?

   Don’t you just miss those bat-shit crazy days of yesteryear? I know I do. There was a fine balance between fun comics and “serious” comics. We’ve come a long way since those days, but perhaps we’ve gone too far. At least in the comics. There are very few examples of goofy fun books anymore. Everybody is concerned with events and continuity. I would love to see some sort of FOOM type of book again from Marvel, or DC starting up the Jimmy Olsen book again.

   This begs the question…

   At least Marvel knows how to have a little fun at its own expense in the Cinematic Universe.

Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell

hulk-where-monsters-dwell

   Watching this for the first time. It’s not bad. It is aimed at a younger audience. I am already digging the fact that the Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D. are involved with the show. While I write this, I am also watching the show. At this point I won’t hold my breath for Dum Dum Dugan to make an appearance.

   The Howling Commandos was one of the best things that Marvel has put out in years. Having said that, it was also a short lived title. So seeing some of them show up in the animated universe is a treat.

   This direct to video presentation is entertaining enough, but don’t expect anything too deep. It’s fun for what it is. If you like Doctor Strange, the Hulk, the Howling Commandos, and don’t mind simplistic plots, then this show is for you. It really is worth a watch.

Holiday Comic Book Cover Cavalcade

   Over on the site’s FaceBook page, I posted a Comic Book Cover Cavalcade of Holiday themed back issues in a photo gallery. Check it out here: Four Color Holiday Celebration. I post graphic heavy content on FaceBook to save space for blog-specific items. Anyhow, head over to the gallery, and check it out. There are a few magazine covers too, due to extra christmasy content.

   Happy holidays! 🕎☃🎁🎄🎉🖖🎅👹

Inhumans, the Moon, and Attilan?

ff240_01

   So news broke that the Inhumans would be, partially, taking place on the MOON! I have not been this excited about a setting since, well, ever. I was there [see image above] when the Fantastic Four, helped save Attilan by transporting it to the Moon. Specifically the “Blue Area” on the moon. Where there were ruins of an ancient civilization, surrounded by a pocket of atmosphere. These were the same ruins where the X-Men battled the Imperial Shiar Guard over the fate of Jean Grey. Jean, sacrificed herself, but she wasn’t the actual Jean Grey… THAT is another story.

   Anyhow, this story is one of the best that John Byrne ever penned, and drew. I know that it is far too much to ask that Fox give the FF back to Marvel for a proper tale of the Inhumans, but just the fact that there will be some Lunar action gives me hope that the true Inhumans will make an appearance in the MCU.

New Animated Hulk movie coming this Fall (2016): Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell 

csrbu8fwaaahh78

   I just heard about this animated movie this morning. It’s supposed to be released this month and there is absolutely NOTHING on it. Just a small snipit on Marvel.com about it.

   For fans of the meanest and greenest super hero in the Marvel universe, 
Hulk gets his very own animated feature, "Marvel's Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell"! 
Hulk teams up with Dr. Strange and the Howling Commandos to explore some of the 
uncharted corners of the Marvel universe.

Marvel_animationHulk: Where Monsters Dwell was announced by Marvel Animation for a Fall release last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. No sneak peeks or plot revelations but who cares, it is more Hulk to fill the gap until Thor Ragnarok next year. With the Hulk being “killed” in the recent Civil War story I will take any real Hulk (not name Cho) that I can get. I am hopeful that they story will be well done – consider me anxious. The story will include Doc Strange which undoubtedly will be used to build up the hype for the Doctor Strange movie in November.
