You Wanted the Best, You Got the Best!! The Hottest Zombies In The World ... KISS!

Image
From Dynamite Entertainment Dynamite announces the next epic chapter in the comic book chronicles of the legendary rock band, KISS: Zombies! After all, what can possibly happen after "The End" than a full-blown zombie apocalypse? That is the screwed up status quo that writer Ethan Sacks (Old Man Hawkeye, Star Wars) and artist Rodney Buchemi (Death of Hawkman) will tackle in this new limited series. Assisted on colors and letters by Dijjo Lima (Assassin's Creed, Doc Savage) and Troy Peteri (Amazing Spider-Man, Witchblade). Picking up decades after the fall of civilization, humans are now an endangered species isolated to strongholds such as the central New Detroit. These undead are attracted to sound, so music and all related iconography have been banned. Especially that of the greatest band in history. However, a group of teenagers are not going to live this way and set out on a quest to track down KISS! Who may ultimately be the ultimate weapon to turn the tide a

Marvel Two in One #1 January 1974 Marvel Comics - $29.99 Cover by Gil Kane and John Romita, Sr. Script by Steve Gerber, pencils by Gil Kane, inks by Joe Sinnott "Vengeance of the Molecule Man!" The Thing, still trying to get home, sees a magazine cover featuring the Man-Thing in a small town Bus Station. Upset by the similarity of his and Man-Thing's names, he decides to travel to Florida instead of New York. The Molecule Man, confined to his other-dimensional prison, tells his son to avenge him by destroying the Fantastic Four, and then apparently dies. The construct then undergoes a process similar to that which gave Molecule Man his powers. He attempts to teleport to New York City, but instead appears in the Florida Everglades, face to face with the Man-Thing. The Thing arrives and is surprised to see the Molecule Man. He charges the villain, but the Molecule Man uses his wand to transform both the Thing and the Man-Thing back into their human forms. The tw

The Flash: "Death of the Speed Force"

Image
From DC Comics What’s a speedster without the Speed Force? While Batman’s abilities come from deep pockets and years of study, Aquaman and Superman gain their powers from their unique physiology and Wonder Woman’s are a gift from the gods, the Flash gets his speed from one place—the Speed Force. So, we ask again, what is the Flash without the Speed Force? Over the years, the momentously strong, somewhat mystical force that powers most speedsters and helps keep the other forces of the world in balance has been shown to be extremely important to not only the Flash, but to the entire DC Multiverse. If it were to suddenly be no more, it’s hard to predict what might happen…but it’s probably not going to be good. Along with losing some of the world’s best heroes, we can expect disruption on a fundamental scale. Cosmic forces held in check, suddenly unchecked. Super-villains imprisoned over the years in the Speed Force, unexpectedly free. Parts of the Multiverse previously inaccessible

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Interview with Patrick Ehlers

Image
From IDW As part of the road to issue 100 of TMNT, each issue features an Oral History with the TMNT creative team, compiled by Patrick Ehlers. Ehlers shared with us his own history with TMNT and how he compiles the eight years of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles history at IDW! You talked with the TMNT comic creative team about how they got into TMNT. How did you get into TMNT? I wish I could remember what Turtles media I first responded to. In my memory, the ‘87 animated series, the ‘89 NES game, the 1990 movie, the playmates toy line and the role-playing game were all kind of rolled into a single holistic multimedia experience. All of that stuff come out before I was even 10 years old, and I think it was really important for me to have access to so many different takes on the Turtles all at once. Like, I think I always knew them as this malleable property, capable of so much imagination and iteration. It also helped that both the role-playing game and the toys kind of let me in

Look back at the 1965 debut of the X-Men's greatest foe The Sentinels!

Image
From Marvel Comics Over the years, the X-Men have faced more than their fair share of deadly foes, but few have done more damage than the Sentinels! By the time the robots first appeared, the merry mutants had already taken on the likes of Magneto, the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, the Avengers, and the Juggernaut, but with UNCANNY X-MEN (1963) #14, one of their most persistent and deadly foes debuted! In that blockbuster issue by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Jay Gavin, "the most unusual teen-agers of all time" got some surprise time off from Professor X after healing from their Juggernaut-related injuries. Meanwhile, renowned anthropologist Dr. Bolivar Trask began kicking up anti-mutant sentiment by calling them more dangerous than war and nuclear bombs! The press picked up the story and ran with it, publishing tales of mutants overtaking the human race and subjugating their genetic inferiors! In an effort to stem the tidal wave of bigotry, Charles Xavier arranged to
