A 60’s Batman animation, complete with Adam West and Burt Ward reprising their roles as Batman and Robin, respectively. Genius!
As part of the massive line of ‘Civil War’ toys and memorabilia, Hasbro released the Black Panther Warrior Pack, a costume set which consists of a Black Panther mask and gloves. We’ve played with them a bit, and although the set make you look pretty darn cool (as one of the Three Amigos as pictured below will show you), it doesn’t allow you to effortless fight with sweet acrobatic moves, nor do the gloves make large gashes in nigh-indestructible metals.
You can pick it up from several retailers and online stores, including Toys-R-Us.
Artist Frank Frazetta created an iconic image in “Death Dealer” a mounted, axe wielding berserker, set on destruction. So iconic that the US Army’s III Corps adopted the image as its mascot back in the 80s. RMJ Tactical is now poised to release a life size version of Death Dealer’s famous axe.
BPRE Head Honcho Jon Chang sent along this gif, a tribute to the classic 1987 game Airborne Ranger, developed by MicroProse for the PC and Commodore 64.
If you’re interested in picking up the BPRE graphic novels and related apparel, you can pick it up at www.blackpowderredearth.com.
Just like the title says, the Amazon Best Seller ‘Black Powder \\ Red Earth’ Season 2 is now available in its complete edition. The Complete edition features over 250 pages of content in one continuous volume.
Panel Syndicate is offering an exclusive digital ‘The Walking Dead’ comic through a pay-what-you-want model. You can get a copy at the link below:
Echelon is offering a limited number of signed BPRE sets for $84 shipped in the US (overseas shipping is an option, but it’ll also be rough on the books). Josh Taylor, the series illustrator, signed 10 complete sets of the BPRE books (volumes 1-7). Each order ships with a free sticker set and another random goodie from the “sold out” bin, which is the the out of print BPRE patch stash that Echelon still maintains. With book 8 due in a few weeks, this collection makes for a timely gift.
If you’re interested, send an email to email@example.com to purchase and they’ll send you a PP invoice and ship USPS priority.
Dark Horse is doing a Black Ops III prequel comic.
They were giving away a free preview at the show. It’s pretty interesting: the special operatives talk in a weird future slang, and new yen is a currency (Shadowrun, much?). I’m curious to see how the full comic pans out when it gets released later this year.
Rogue Trooper is one of my absolute favorite 2000 AD series, and thanks to IDW Publishing some of the earliest Rogue Trooper stories are now collected in trade paperback format, in glorious full-color.
Today at the comic book store, we picked up the first issue of McBane, a new comic based around the action hero parody McBane from The Simpsons. Now, in addition to the comic, you also get this awesome movie poster for ‘Have Bodybag, Will Travel’, the latest McBane flick.
What’s really unique about this issue is the comic is also the poster:
Makes it a bit hard to read, but it’s also really cool. In all honesty, though, I’m hoping this stays a one-off kinda thing, and it doesn’t become a trend.
This video combines two of my favorite entertainment forces, Batman and Dethklok, into a fusion of metal and vigilantism. Fair warning, it’s a bit weird.
Guardians of the Galaxy drops August 1st, 2014.
This scene from the upcoming X-Men sequel shows the remaining mutant resistance fighting off the upgraded Sentinels of the future. This scene alone gives me higher hopes for this movie.
X-Men: Days of Future Past drops May 23rd, 2014.
Batman: Strange Days is a short produced by Bruce Timm celebrating Batman’s 75th anniversary. It’s a blend of Golden Age Batman with Hugo Strange and one of his monster men, mixed with the iconic “Timmverse” art style featured in the DC Animated Universe.
If you haven’t seen ‘DREDD’ yet, it’s a damn fine movie adaption of Judge Dredd (it’s on Netflix) and I highly recommend it. Karl Urban, who played the title character, made this video to remind the fans that they’re hard at work at getting a sequel made, and there’s a petition working towards that goal.

Have you seen the Judge Dredd reboot/remake film ‘Dredd’, yet? Well, this isn’t from that. It’s actually a time-lapse of some awesome, high-quality makeup that turns a model’s jaw into one closely representing Dredd’s jaw in the comics, since, y’know, that’s the only part of his face you’re ever supposed to see.
DPx Gear is having a special deal. Purchase either a HEFT 4 Assault or HEST II Assault knife and add an author-signed preview copy of ‘Roll Hard’ to the order, and get both for just $99. That’s a potential savings of over 50% for the knife alone, plus a signed copy of a kick-ass graphic novel to boot.
Les Stroud is getting his own comic book to be released this Fall, based on the Survivorman television show. ‘Survivorman: The Horn of Providence’, which involves Les ‘Survivorman’ Stroud chasing down a stolen artifact from American history, sounds a bit more Indiana Jones than the standard Survivorman affair. The story is being written by Dusty McGowen, with Brian Lucey and Matt Lesniewski on art, and is being published by Blue Water Comics.
