90's Marvel Universe Card Art Returns

Game Office Marvel Universe Nano Puzzle Thor


Sensing the immense love fans are giving anything that calls back to their very geeky childhoods, European company Game Office is releasing a series of "Nano Puzzles" featuring art from the 90's Marvel Universe card series from Impel. For those who don't go ham on collectibles of any sort, I'll clue you in that over the Covid shut down, and still (largely) today, the market on most 80's vintage toy lines went through the roof, along with several card series that were very nearly worthless prior to this bump. Impel's first series Marvel Universe card series got a significant kick in the pants and still remains in the triple digits for a complete set, with holograms. Most likely noticing this trend, licensors are taking full advantage!

Help Teachers to Help Our Kids with TEACHER'S AIDE

Teacher's Aide logo
For 2 to 7 hours a day, we put our children in the hands of trained professionals who would teach them all manner of subjects. From world history, which shows them how far we have come... and how far we have left to go, to math and science, with which they can unravel the very mysteries of the universe. We rely on special individuals...teachers...for safety, guidance and strength of character we hope will be reflected back in our children's eyes. Sadly, shouldering all of these responsibilities does not pay the king's wage you might expect. Those left to mold the minds that will carve out the future of this nation often can not meet their own basic needs and certainly can not afford to endow entire classes with supplies for special projects...or any projects at all. Creativity falls by the wayside. Imagination stifled. This stands for both student and educational professional. Something must be done.

Segura and Hart's Prohibition Era Comic Series Blood Oath

Comixology Originals Blood Oath
Comixology Originals announces Blood Oath, a Prohibition Era horror comic series co-written by acclaimed novelists Rob Hart and Alex Segura. With art by Joe Eisma, colors by Hilary Jenkins, letters by Jim Campbell, and edited by Heather Antos, Blood Oath #1 (of 5) debuts on August 30th from Amazon’s Comixology Originals exclusive digital content line.

“Blood Oath is a blend of some of our favorite things, in terms of story and genre - historical fiction, the early days of organized crime, and horror - all things we wanted to explore, and they blended together perfectly to ask a key question: what if there was a secret, monstrous crime family that’s been part of the underworld for decades?” Segura said.

THE MARKED: Halloween Special Arriving for the Spookiest Day Ever

Image Comics THE MARKED: Halloween Special
Fan-favorite duo David Hine and Brian Haberlin re-team for a special Halloween treat for readers just in time for Halloween with The Marked: Halloween Special one-shot out from Image Comics.

Once every hundred years The Marked are challenged to a game called Rogue’s Night. It’s a game, like Russian Roulette is a game, like Christians vs. Lions was a game. The stakes are high and if The Marked lose, we all lose.

Here’s how it works: Rogue was a powerful witch who was kicked out of The Marked four hundred years ago for using Dark Magic. Every century she takes her revenge by choosing a location to unleash her mischief demons. This time her target is Holy Mountain, Texas, where a radical evangelist called Pastor Jonah is burning books and banning Halloween. According to the pastor, leftists and liberals are literally Satan’s demons in human form. As night falls on Halloween, it looks like he was right. The demons are here and it’s all tricks with no treats for the God-fearing citizens of Holy Mountain.

Their only hope of survival lies with the “witchy freaks” known as The Marked, the very people they tried to kick out of town.

Hasbro Releases More Power Rangers for the Ghostbusters Line

Hasbro Power Rangers Lightning Collection Snizzard 002
Did I confuse you with that title? I tend to do that. ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN!! 

I love Ghostbusters and the announcement that Hasbro was taking over the license had me HYPED. I also love Marvel Legends, and the rate at which Hasbro cranks out those suckers made me think I'd be swimming in 16 different types of Ghosts and or Busters in one months time. 

Sadly, this did not happen. 

What's An ALIENOID??

Well Go USA ALIENOID movie poster
This peculiar question is one Well Go USA is more than happy to answer, as their Korean Scifi Thriller ALIENOID is hitting theaters as we speak. 

In the year 2022, Guard (KIM Woo-bin) and Thunder live on Earth, managing alien prisoners who have been locked up in humans’ brains. One day, a spacecraft appears in the sky over Seoul, and the police detective Moon (SO Ji-sub, “Moon”) witnesses a strange sight…

Meanwhile 630 years earlier during the Goryeo Dynasty, the hapless dosa (Korean tao magician) Muruk (RYU Jun-yeol) and Ean (KIM Tae-ri), the so-called “The Girl Who Shoots Thunder”, each scramble to outwit each other in pursuit of the mystical Divine Blade, for which a huge reward is being offered.

A She-Hulk Toy Appreciation Post (Gallery Inside!)

She-Hulk Appreciation Action Figure Shoot 023
The Single Green Female run of She-Hulk is one of my favorite comic runs of all time. The subject matter hits on all levels for me. You get an exploration of Marvel's New York City that goes beyond the doors of the Avengers Mansion or the Baxter Building, showing villains and heroes alike just trying to live in their respective worlds. When the full weight of the American Judicial System comes down on either side, Jennifer Walters is there to defend the superpowered in a story that is borderline genius, but more often than not, also highly comedic. The world is ridiculous, so it stands to reason it would be 100x more in the powered community.

Hasbro Spider-Man Across the Spiderverse Basic Mask Asst Spider-Punk 002
Across the Spider-Verse will see the return of Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen as they battle baddies and make contact with multiple Spider-Folks across the Multiverse. Shenanigans ABOUND!! If you are wondering why merchandise for this film is dropping now, it's pretty simple. The original release date was October 7th, 2022, making NOW the 2-month-til-release mark (when we usually get toys for the big movie releases). Then, when the movie drops, we generally get a second wave that includes characters that were under wraps. Across the Spider-Verse was shifted to a painful June 2, 2023 release date, with part 2 releasing March 29th, 2024. Regardless of these new facts, the toy lines were already in production and so...here's Spidey!

It was Christmas in July as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment gave a gift, then tossed in a few surprises at 2022 Comic-Con International this past weekend.

The initial gift -- the World Premiere of "Green Lantern: Beware My Power" -- came on Friday night as the enthusiastic Ballroom 20 audience was treated to the first public screening of the latest entry in the 15-year history of the DC Universe Movies. The screening was followed by an exciting, informative and oftentimes funny panel discussion amongst actors Aldis Hodge (John Stewart/Green Lantern), Jimmi Simpson (Green Arrow), Jamie Gray Hyder (Hawkgirl) and Brian Bloom (Adam Strange) alongside the filmmaking quartet of executive producer Butch Lukic, director Jeff Wamester and co-screenwriters John Semper Jr. & Ernie Altbacker. Publicist Gary Miereanu served as moderator.
