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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

MoneySupermarket has released an updated infographic detailing the cost of being Iron Man in anticipation for the upcoming ‘Iron Man 3′. Taken into account is his expanded armory of suits, the cost to rebuild his home, his collection of cars, and his super computer. It all comes out to just north of 10 billion dollars; being a super hero just isn’t a poor man’s game, unless your Peter Parker, of course.
Tony Swatton of MAN AT ARMS custom creates 6 hardened steel batarangs that are more practical (in function, at least) than the standard affair seen in the various Batman films.
Created by Mike Oncley for Ltd. Art Gallery in Seattle, this bit of art depicts everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth as a mosaic made from spent brass and shotshells.
