wotc_dark_horse_comic_book_2_cover

November 2, 2016 — Wargaming and Dark Horse deliver the highly anticipated second issue of the World of Tanks: Roll Out comic book, available digitally at Dark Horse Digital and in comic book stores in North America, Australia, Western and Eastern Europe today. Exclusively in printed copies of issue #2, is a code for the special Open Fire bundle loaded with in-game items for World of Tanks on console.

The next in the series of storyline inspired hero tanks arrives with the Sherman Firefly Boilermaker. Exploding from the pages of the comic book, Boilermaker is now available to purchase for World of Tanks on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

The action escalates in the next installment of Wargaming’s intense tank combat saga. Garth Ennis (Preacher, War Stories) and illustrator Carlos Ezquerra (Judge Dredd, War Stories Vol. 2) once again take readers back to the battlefield as the British tank crew makes an alarming discovery that could turn the tables on the German Panthers that hunt them. Meanwhile, the German Panther division suffers heavy losses and must reunite with their battalion, only to face a new challenge.

Available in the Premium Shop are a series of bundles featuring the comic book’s iconic Sherman Firefly, Boilermaker. Packing a mighty 17 PDR gun, Boilermaker comes with an authentic WWII camo and unique decals that act as spaced armor. Rounding out this impressive package is the inclusion of tank Commander James White who possesses the Last Stand skill. As an added bonus and available only to those who purchase the comic physically, is a code for the Open Fire bundle bringing a platform specific T1 tank and a full load of in-game content like garage slots, fully trained crews and more!

World of Tanks (PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC and Mobile) is the first free-to-play massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. With hundreds of vehicles from a variety of countries at your disposal, the path to victory is achieved through team work, strategy and expert combat skill.

Black Panther Warrior Pack

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.

Frazetta and RMJ Tactical – Death Dealer Battle Axe

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

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.

Black Powder Red Earth – Limited Number Of Signed BPRE Sets

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

BPRE 1

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 info@echelon-software.com to purchase and they’ll send you a PP invoice and ship USPS priority.

FullSizeRender

It’s Wednesday, so that means new comics, and that includes this new series ‘The Sheriff of Babylon’. It’s co-created by Mitch Gerads, co-creator of The ACTIVITY, a comic which details the actions of the Intelligence Support Activity. It’s a pretty good read, so pick up an issue if you can.

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.

Bongo Comics – McBane #1

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

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.

IMG_2794

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.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past – Opening Fight Scene

Tuesday, April 15th, 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.

Do You Want A Sequel To ‘DREDD’?

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

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.

Judge Dredd Time-Lapse

Friday, November 29th, 2013

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.

SURVIVORMAN2_1

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.
