Jamie Lee Curtis Presents Eco-Horror MOTHER NATURE

Titan Comics Jamie Lee Curtis Horror Graphic Novel MOTHER NATURE
Titan Comics is thrilled to be publishing Mother Nature (Fall 2022) the terrifying debut eco-horror graphic novel by Hollywood legend Jamie Lee Curtis. Co-written with film-maker Russell Goldman and illustrated by artist Karl Stevens, the book has been adapted from the script for the upcoming Comet Pictures and Blumhouse horror movie Mother Nature, directed by Jamie Lee Curtis.

Nova Terrell who, after witnessing her father die in mysterious circumstances on one of the Cobalt Corporation’s experimental oil extraction projects, has grown up to despise the seemingly benevolent company that the town of Catch Creek, New Mexico, relies on for its jobs and prosperity. The rebellious Nova wages a campaign of sabotage and vandalism against the oil giant, until one night she accidentally makes a terrifying discovery about the true nature of the “Mother Nature” project and the long-dormant, vengeful entity it has awakened that threatens to destroy them all.

Toy Fair 2022: Funko on Hawkeye, Sodas, Star Wars & More

Toy Fair 2022 FUNKO Pop Marvel Hawkeye Lucky the Pizza Dog
Annnnd we're back, digging into that giant pile of UK Toy Fair coverage Matthew Hawkins delivered. Funko always has their own space at this event and are extremely welcoming, so we take the time to shoot everything we can. AS SUCH, you must know it's hard to figure what is new (recently released), from what is new new (has been seen but not in person), and what is super new (never seen before), so Matt shot everything not nailed down. Seemed a logical course of action!

On tap along the Funko shelves were Soda mystery cans, mystery minis, pens, pops, xl pops and SUPER MEGA POPS, so let's take a look at the eye candy...

Toy Fair 2022: Playmobil's Mini Cooper

Toy Fair 2022 Playmobil Mini Cooper

The new PLAYMOBIL Mini Cooper hits shelves this week! All car lovers can look forward to a true British icon: the Mini Cooper. Not only Mr. Bean, but also the Beatles, drove this legendary cult car. Like no other car, the Mini Cooper represents classic British style in a small, fun, and nimble package. No wonder that the design of the original Mini remained almost unchanged for nearly forty-one years. The Mini Cooper offers a lot of car in a little space - for designer Alec Issigonis, "creative use of space" and "focus on the essentials" were so important that there was no room for heating or radio, and sliding windows were used instead of retractable windows.

Wolverine, Spider-Man, The Hulk & Ghost Rider Return as the NEW Fantastic Four

Marvel Comics NEW FANTASTIC FOUR #1 (OF 5)
In 1991’s FANTASTIC FOUR #347, comic book legends Walter Simonson and Arthur Adams introduced an unforgettable iteration of Marvel’s premier Super Hero team when they teamed up WOLVERINE, SPIDER-MAN, GHOST RIDER, and HULK as the NEW FANTASTIC FOUR. Though their time as the FF was brief, this unlikely group of heroes left a big impact, and now fans will get to return to this special moment in Marvel history in a new limited series kicking off in May. Written by comics great Peter David and featuring the Marvel Comics debut of artist Alan Robinson, NEW FANTASTIC FOUR will be set shortly after the events of the fan-favorite group’s first appearance, taking readers back to a classic era with a brand-new tale in the same vein as hit titles like X-MEN LEGENDS, MAESTRO, and SILVER SURFER REBIRTH.

Toy Fair 2022 Phat Mojo Bendy and the Ink Machine Heavenly Toys Buildable Set

It was 2018 when we last saw Basic Fun introducing the world at large to Bendy and the Ink Machine via their C3 construction sets. Unfortunately, the line didn't last that long and fans of the game were left with few creepy collectibles to haunt their shelves. Flash forward to UK Toy Fair 2022 and Phat Mojo, who set up their lightning rods and resurrected the dead!

No HUGE announcement of a full line of sets and figures as yet, BUT we did catch one construction set in full view. The "Heavenly Toys Buildable Set" comes with 3 buildable mini figures and 383 pieces. Check out the eye candy...

American Mcgee's Alice
Radar Pictures has secured the television rights to American McGee's Alice, the acclaimed third-person action adventure game based on Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass published by Electronic Artists (EA). The drama series will be developed as the first adaptation of American McGee's Alice franchise, Alice, and its 2011 sequel Alice: Madness Returns. 

As active development on the series begins, McGee beamed: “David Hayter brings imagination, experience, and stealth sneaking skills gained through successful missions in film, TV, and video games - a unique combination sure to make this adventure into Wonderland a successful one for the franchise and the fans. I am excited to be working with him and know the Alice fans will welcome him with mad affection."

Toy Fair 2022: Phat Mojo Spends Five Nights at Freddy's

Toy Fair 2022 Phat Mojo Five Nights At Freddy's
I have always believed that it is a sign of an advanced civilization when we allow our children to be super spooky. It happened in the 60's when monster movies were all the rage and model kits, mego dolls and rubber jiggling creeps were in every store window. The 80's and 90's were pretty decent for horror films but censors ruined everything and the toy aisles reflected that. Still, we got some super questionable Freddy Krueger merch, Inhumanoids and other fantastic fiends. Plants vs Zombies reminded big business that kids love to be freaked out by the undead, paving the way for a little game that grew into a massive licensing juggernaut; FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY'S!! Though I'm still waiting for McFarlane to make super detailed, fully realized monster versions of those lovable killer animatronics, we've still got Phat Mojo keeping the dream alive.
