Ozark Trailer: Jason Bateman Stars in a Nature-Set Netflix Crime Series

Opinion: Marvel Comics Can Learn From Hellboy

I don't envy any reader trying to jump into superhero comics right now. Sure, there's a wealth of great material out there, with decades of classic stories and strong new material being published every single week. The problem is trying to figure out what to read and where to start. With books constantly being relaunched, rebooted, re-branded and whatever else, it can be all but impossible to know where to begin and in what order to follow an ongoing series.

That problem was perfectly highlighted by writer Eric Palicki last week, who tweeted the following image showing exactly what happens when someone searches for "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1" on Comixology:

Valiant Streamlining Process To Buy Overpriced Comics You Can’t Read

Valiant Streamlining Process To Buy Overpriced Comics You Can't Read

They're partnering with CGC to offer signature series grading for Secret Weapons #1.

Source: Press Release

Comic collectors generally go to a grading service like CGC to grade and slab an important comic book. Then there are exceptions likeValiantteaming with CGC to offer grading forthe SECRET WEAPONS #1 VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES (VVSS) edition. The issue features virgin cover art, not nearly as good as extra-virgin cover art, which means it is an unrefined oil and the highest-quality olive oil you can buy. It also comes with a hand-written signature in gold ink from Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer, and an official VVSS embossed seal.

Valiant is sure to let collectors know thatthe signed Valiant Certificate of Authenticity included with each copy will not be encased with the graded comic. That was my biggest worry.

The VVSS edition needs to be received by CGC by September 27, 2017 to qualify for the CGC Signature Series certification. Secret Weapons #1 is out June 28.

Editor Daniel Ketchum Let Go By Marvel Comics

Editor Daniel Ketchum Let Go By Marvel Comics

We're assuming he couldn't catch them all.


X-MenEditorDaniel Ketchumwas let go fromMarvelon Tuesday, according to sources. An anonymous source has told The Outhouse that they've heard multiple reasons from multiple people for his firing and Marvel hasn't released a statement about it. There is no prominent rumor floating around either.

Ketchum has also already changed his Twitter bio, removing Marvel, but leaving Editor, which means he could have something already in the works.

15 MCU Villains We Want After Avengers: Infinity War

We're reaching a critical point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe right now. All of these movies are rapidly building toward the climactic showdown between Earth's heroes and Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. But even as exciting as that prospect is, we can't help but wonder what comes next.

Thanos may be the end-game of Phase 3 of the MCU, but there will be plenty more movies to come, and many more villains for the Avengers to contend with. These are the 15 villains we'd most like to see appear in Phase 4 and beyond, including new faces and an old favorite or two that still have more stories to be told.

We don't know much about the direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Infinity War, but it is clear that Marvel has no plans to slow down its release schedule. Fans can look forward to the release of Ant-Man and The Wasp on July 6, 2018, Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, The Avengers 4 on May 3, 2019, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 on July 5, 2019 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 at some point thereafter, along with three more unrevealed movies for 2020.

World Falls For Berkeley Breathed’s Viral Letter

World Falls For Berkeley Breathed's Viral Letter

Breathed posted a letter purportedly to be from Trump.

Source: Facebook

Berkeley Breathed, an American cartoonist best known forBloom County, took to Facebook Thursday night posting a letter from the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP purporting to represent President Donald Trump. The letter states that Breathed is commercially exploiting Trump's image. It also claims that Trump said they will "have your **** in a sling by lunch."

letter1.jpg

Breathed then followed up with his response that he's removed all of the images and only was having "fun" with the President. He also offered to send Melania Trump, the First Lady, a plus Opus so she'll have "TWO stuffed pudgies" to cuddle with.

letter2.jpg

Former Outhouse Editor-In-Chief Christian Hoffer did some investigating to find out if the letter was real.

@bloomcounty I reached out to the law firm that allegedly sent the letter and they confirmed it was false. Sorry, guys.

— Christian Hoffer (@CHofferCBus) May 25, 2017

The sad part is that this idea isn't too far-fetched, as sites like Uproxxare reporting it as fact.

The CW’s Black Lightning Explained

The CW will be adding yet another DC Comics-based series to its lineup this fall thanks to Black Lightning. The series will chronicle the exploits of Jefferson Pierce, a middle-aged metahuman trying to raise two daughters and make his city a safer place. Even with his electricity powers, that task will be easier said than done.

Black Lightning won't be premiering until midway through the 2017-2018 TV season, but it doesn't hurt to brush up o the character now. We're here to break down everything you need to know about this rising star in the DCU.

Black Lightning is among DC's first African American superheroes. A resident of Metropolis' Suicide Slum, Jefferson fights to keep his family and his community safe from gangs like The 100 and crime lords like Tobias Whale, and his innate electric powers make him a serious force to be reckoned with. Jefferson tends to have a unique perspective on crime and evil relative to the heroes of the Justice League. He'd prefer to remain on the street and try to enact change on a local level rather than spend his time high above the world in the JLA Watchtower.

Sony Gets Prince-Bythewood for Silver Sable/Black Cat Spinoff Movie!

Sony Gets Prince-Bythewood for Silver Sable/Black Cat Spinoff Movie!

Yes, Sony is apparently still committed to doing Spider-Man spinoff movies as they've gotten Prince-Bythewood, the director for the Cloak & Dagger pilot for their Black Cat/Silver Sable film.

Source: Spider-Man' Spinoff: Silver Sable, Black Cat Movie Finds Director with 'Secret Life of Bees' Filmmaker (Exclusive)

So several months ago producer and former Sony Pictures head honcho Amy Pascal terrified the entire internet with her words that Sony was committedto more bad Spider-Man movies. Earlier this week, we learned that Tom Hardy would be Eddie Brock in the new Ruben Fleischer-directed Venom movie. Before all of that, we had the animated Spider-Man movie news that Shameik Moore will be providing the voice of Miles Morales.

Now, we have news today on Silver Sable/Black Cat spinoff movie, Silver & Black. Because, why not?! The Hollywood Reporter reports that Sony has found their director for the movie in Gina Prince-Bythewood (Secret Life of Bees, Cloak & Dagger TV pilot) and that Christopher Yost (yes, the guy who co-created X-23, but also scripted that awful Max Steel movie from last year) is working on the most recent draft for the film.

Oh, and Amy Pascal is co-producing this movie. So she meant what she said months ago. Sony does intend to flood the market with Spider-Man spinoff films. You can begin screaming now internet.

Marvel’s Secret Wars is Coming to Disney XD

Marvel's Secret Wars is Coming to Disney XD

Hey! Marvel still has an Avengers animated series!! And their sort of adapting the popular 80s comic event. Just without the X-Men. Or Fantastic Four. Or Spider-Man. It'll have Dr. Doom right? RIGHT?!

Source: MARVEL’S AVENGERS: SECRET WARS COMING TO DISNEY XD THIS SUMMER (EXCLUSIVE)

Okay, I'm going to be fully honest here. I thought Marvel's Avengers Assemble had gone the way of Ultimate Spider-Man. That they didn't renew it for additional episodes, and like it's cousin was a far inferior product compared what came before it *cough* Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes *cough*.

So here I am surprised as heck to learn today via the Nerdist, that not only is the Avengers cartoon still trucking along, but that it's doing a "Secret Wars" adaptation (classic 80s Secret Wars with the whole Beyonder pulling heroes to fight villains for the ultimate experiment on good/evil). Though the show is doing their own twist. Instead of Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, and X-Men it'll include two groups of Avengers.

The season premiere will include the new team (lead by Black Panther. It'll have Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Ant-Man, Wasp, and the Vision) battle the Cabal (lead by the Leader) and try to save the old team as they've been scattered across the universe due to the events of the "Ultron Revolution" finale.

Here's a pic of the new team:

bpavengers

The season premiere of the new season of Avengers will kick off with a one-hour special on June 17th at 11:30 am (Eastern Standard Time). To tide us over until then, Disney XD will be releasing shorts starting on Friday June 2nd on the Disney XD app, Video on Demand, and Disney XD You Tube channel showcasing each new Avenger.

The return of Jay Garrick. - Flash #22

2upcnwx

This thread will contain SPOILERS!!! And lots of them. If you haven't read this week's comics yet, go read them before continuing into this thread, or risk being spoiled!

PLEASE NOTE!!!!!! ]Remember to include the title and issue number of the comic you are nominating. Otherwise I will be forced to disqualify your nomination, and nobody wants that!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Rules:

1. Each nomination must be a moment in a comic released the week of the thread. This does not include weekly previews, trade paperbacks, or back issue digests. For new comics check out Midtown Comics release dates.

2. Everyone can make ONE nomination. You can either nominate a moment yourself or second/third/fourth/fifth an already existing nomination. However, second/third/fourth/fifth will not count per nominating and thus earn entry above in Top Nominations. You want in that list you must nominate something.

3. It must be an actual moment involving the actions or statements of a comic character in an issue. No "This writer returns to the series", "this artist draws this character", "the book is better", etc.

4. If you want to change your nomination, there are a few factors involved:

---> A) No one can have seconded your nom.

---> B) If it is clear for you to change your nom, you must edit your original post or the new post will be disqualified as being a double nomination.

---> C) You can change your second, third, etc. by editing your original post before the nomination period ends.

Moments on the poll do not have to be seconded. If there is room in the poll, moments that were nominated but not seconded will be added based on the order they were nominated.

6. Again, please be specific on the comic title, issue number and moment. Also be clear that you are actually nominating or seconding something ... statements such as "Yeah, that was a cool moment" aren't clear. You must nominate a single moment in the comic and can't nominate the whole issue. Once more, if you don’t include the issue and number the moment will not be included.

7. The thread for nominations will go up on Wednesday (new comic day) at 11:00 PM (Central) or when Zechs arrives later that night and posts in the previous week thread announcing voting is closed. The nominations will go until 2:00 PM (Central Time) Sunday Afternoon, or whenever Zechs arrives and will post in the thread stating, “It’s over.” and will start the poll. If a new comic day falls on a holiday week in American, then the thread will be made for that day (be it Tuesday or Thursday). Regardless, nominations will STILL conclude on Saturday deadline.

8. Please be civil when commenting on other people's nominations. But feel free to discuss them in this thread.

9. In case there is debate on WHEN exactly a title came out, http://www.midtowncomics.com or the official websites of said publishers (be it Marvel, DC, Darkhorse, etc.) will be the final word on the quarrel.

10. Any nominations not following the above rules will be disqualified. Unless of course if Zechs, who is feeling sad for the person who missed the rule and might give them time to provide the correction. Then he will pester bk into putting the nomination in the poll. Of course this wouldn’t be a problem if Zechs wasn’t granted the glorious powers of a moderator, which one day such power will be Zechs, oh yes they will his.

11. If at five nominations are not made, Zechs will choose some, but they will all count as one nomination, not multiple thus making sure balance is preserved.

12. AKA the Rulk rule. If several moments are tied past the deadline of 11:00 PM (Central Time) Wednesday (or holiday date when new comics arrive in the US) or when Zechs arrives that night, then voting will continue on in sudden death for eight more hours, until one is decided. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE.

If one isn’t still decided, then Zechs will provide the deciding vote, regardless if he has voted already. So if that isn't enough reason to get a ton of votes on that additional day than you're just dooming yourself to give Zechs another vote.

13. AKA the Hobgoblin rule. Roderick Kingsley Hobgoblin moments when winning for three days straight automatically win the poll. No last day or second voting changes it to troll the ruler of this thread.

Only ONE can rule as the Moment of the Week!

FOX’s The New Mutants Film Will Be A Full-Fledged Horror Film

FOX's The New Mutants Film Will Be A Full-Fledged Horror Film

Still less scary than another Bryan Singer X-film.

Source: Entertainment Weekly

While directorJosh Boone has been teasing about his upcomingThe New Mutantsfilm, not much has been revealed in the way of plot until now, divulging that the movie will be a straight-up horror flick.

"We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe," director Josh Boone says. "There are no costumes. There are no supervillains. We're trying to do something very, very different."

This direction is new for the X-Men franchise, as they've always been traditional superhero films.

The New Mutants, which was created by Chris Claremont in the early '80s, is about a group of teenage mutants, a kind of superheroes-in-training, who must learn to control their powers.

Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams was cast as Wolfsbane, as well as Anya Taylor-Joy, who will be playing Magik. Sources close to production say that 13 Reasons Why'sHenry Zaga will be announced soon asSunspot.The release date is set as April 13, 2018.
