Megan Fox Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

If you weren't aware, there's a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie in production, and April O'Neil is played by none other than Megan Fox. In fact, images of Fox on set have emerged, showing that she is sporting brown hair and a yellow jacket that  stands in place of the jumpsuit of the same color that April is known for by fans of the franchise.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is being directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and stars Megan Fox in the role of April O'Neil, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, and Danny Woodburn as Master Splinter.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One Collection back on sale, release date confirmed

Posted by John Kilhefner Categories: Home Entertainment, Movies

It's been a long time coming for patiently waiting Marvel fans, but the 10-disc Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled Blu-ray collection set is finally slated for release on April 2nd. The collection had previously been delayed by lawsuit, leaving Amazon to pacify pre-orderers with free copies of The Avengers.

Originally, the collection was to come with a S.H.I.E.L.D. briefcase, but that has since been scrapped due to the aforementioned licensing issue. It will, however, come with a suitcase featuring a glowing Tesseract on the inside. Also, thanks to the delay, the collection will have a few new extras, such as an early Iron Man 3 preview and the second phase of films. But with extra content comes extra financial responsibility, as the price is now $219 at retail--but you can preorder it for $197.10 on Amazon, saving yourself 10%.

How To Write Comics The Fingeroth Way!

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Marvel Comics

Danny FingerothHey, while you’re sitting on your butt Wednesday nights playing on the computer, you could be learning how to write comic books.

My good friend, Danny Fingeroth, is opening up his brain again and letting all the how-to out with his 5-part online course called Writing Comics And Graphic Novels. As a former Marvel editor - and one I hold in high regard - and comic book writer - ditto - it doesn’t get much better than this in the learning department. He's now the Sr. VP of Education at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York.


Kickstarter: A Geek’s Journal 1976

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials

Geek's JournalI’m a geek and I certainly was in high school.

My life was full of comics, television, and all the usual school stuff. Unfortunately, I didn’t write any of my life down at the time. But I know a guy who did: Steven Thompson, the creator of the popular pop-culture blog Booksteve’s Library, wrote it all down in 1976 and kept it up.

He recently discovered his old diary and posted it on the internet, one entry per day along with modern commentary as the author looked back on his teenaged life.

It’s a funny, fascinating look at one fan’s life, as he tries to get something going with girls, hangs out with friends, goes to concerts, buys records and comics, watches television and masturbates (yep, he goes there).

Free Comics!: Will Eisner’s Complete Run of PS Magazine

Posted by Kris Madden Categories: Collecting, Reviews

PS magazine

You’re probably familiar with Will Eisner‘s work on The Spirit, and maybe you’ve read The Contract With God trilogy, but are you familiar with his WWII panels for “Joe’s Dope Sheet”? Courtesy of Virginia Commonwealth University, 254 complete issues of Eisner’s work for PS magazine are available for viewing here.

Eisner created “Joe’s Dope Sheet” for the US Army to illustrate consequences for soldiers who didn’t keep their gear up to code. Every issue is filled with classic Eisner’s technically-taut cartoon/comic illustrations.

It also hosts hundreds of old-school DIY instructionals on army gear maintenance. Even today, PS Magazine is a great read, and must-link for all Will Eisner fans. Here’s a classic example from 1954’s issue #20 of PS Magazine:

An interview with Neal Adams

Posted by Todd Matthy Categories: Interviews

Neal Adams
With New York Comic Con having just passed earlier this month, I’ve decided to bring to you this gem from last year’s convention. Here is an interview I conducted with the legendary, Neal Adams. Unfortunately, I was not able to publish this interview until now. (I’m sorry, Neal) But, Neal is so interesting that an interview from last year is too good to let sit idle. So, without further ado, Neal Adams.
