Same Hat! has a nifty story called “Oni” by Go Nagai, originally published in Marvel’s late, great Epic Magazine. That’s some very metal stuff, right there.

I’ve had it up to here with all these minimalist movie poster experiments that make the rounds, but this one by Justin Erickson achieves a high score. (via Twitch)

Guillermo Del Toro’s Cruisin’ adaptation of “At The Mountains of Madness” has been shelved by Universal. Drew McWeeny breaks down why this isn’t such a shock.

The Comics Journal’s website has re-launched under the auspices of the former Comics Comics crew of Tim Hodler and Dan Nadel.

That’s a line-up that instantly puts just about every other comics-related site in the dust, IMO. Bookmark it.

I’d buy a full price ticket for an Inhumans movie, although the whole “splinter-cell for a Kree invasion thing” strikes me as less exciting and innovative than the source material’s concepts, even if it does lend itself to an easy-to-market story hook the original admittedly lacks.

Curt Purcell is reading G.R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones series for the first time. As usual, expect salient insights and controversial opinions about shit you missed when you read it.

And this new French THOR trailer makes the movie look très divertissant indeed…
