As we near the end of Marvel’s Secret Wars, we are slowly seeing the influx of new books coming out. One such book is Doctor Strange, appearing in his first solo series in many years. While I’m uncertain how Secret Wars will transition into this particular book, I’m rather pleased with what I’ve seen so far. Continue reading

Most geeks I know are looking forward to the premeire of Gotham in just a few weeks. Unfortunately, most of the people I know also lead busy lives and might miss an episode or two. With DVRs that’s less of a worry, but is not completely alleviated. I know from experience that I have both forgotten to record shows or the DVR has screwed up and only recorded five minutes. As far as Gotham is concerned, it’s no longer a worry because Netflix has already acquired the rights to the show. In a fairly unprecedented move, Netflix has obtained the rights to a completely untested show (that isn’t a Netflix original), and it will be the international source for video-on-demand services.

The long awaited sequel to Sin City is coming out at the end of the summer, but not before it makes headlines for butting heads with the MPAA. The issue stems from the new one sheet poster featuring Eva Green in a rather revealing “robe”. The MPAA sites several complaints, including the “curve under the breast”. Dimension Films has stated it is working with the MPAA to come up to a compromise on the poster so we should expect to see a modified version soon. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For comes out August 22.
It’s Eva Green, so at this point, a quick Google search is way more revealing than this poster. Lighten up MPAA.
If you enjoyed X-Men: Days of Future Past but are puzzled by the maze that is X-Men continuity, well then Comics Alliance has got some great jumping on points throughout the entirety of X-Men history. Some of my personal favorites are Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men, Mike Carey’s run on X-Men, Chris Claremont’s run on Uncanny X-Men and Jason Aaron’s Wolverine and the X-Men. To be perfectly honest though, I would recommend any of the listed jumping on points, since they are all awesome stories or runs.
Even the 90’s have some good stuff, you just have to look harder to find it.
Finally, we’ve got a summer reading list from the newest member of Sourcerer’s writing staff, CompGeekDavid. I have read or am currently reading everything on this list, so I can say with confidence that every title is worth your time. I’m especially keen on the Abnett/Lanning Guardians of the Galaxy which provides a lot of the basis for this summer’s blockbuster.
Marvel 1602 was one of the first trade paperbacks I bought at NYCC back in 2007.
