What events led up to the most brutal battles yet between humans and their simian counterparts? David F. Walker (co-writer of Tarzan on the Planet of the Apes) will answer that question in Boom! Studios' comic book series prequel to War of the Planet of the Apes, coming out this July just before the new film hits theaters from 20th Century Fox. For our latest Q&A feature, we had the chance to discuss the new four-issue series with Walker, as well as his Day of the Dead and Escape from New York dream projects.

With his wife and daughter nowhere in sight, the opening issue hits the ground running with that mission statement, as it’s full of pure Power Man goodness.

In Luke Cage #1, Cage leaves New York behind for New Orleans, to attend the funeral of Dr. Noah Burstein – the man who gave him his unbreakable skin. Whilst there, the Hero for Hire discovers that Burstein repeated »

Luke Cage hits the streets of New Orleans in new Marvel solo series

7 February 2017 4:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Walker (Power Man and Iron Fist, Occupy Avengers) and rising star artist Nelson Blake II (Romulus), which will see Harlem’s Hero for Hire heading to New Orleans to uncover a mystery dating back to his very origins.

Ask Marvel Returns For Its Second Season

19 January 2017 9:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Capitalizing on the recent success of its Marvel 101 videos and an informative piece focusing on Captain Marvel, the House of Ideas have launched the second season of its entertaining web series, Ask Marvel. So, if you ever wanted to ask an actor, writer or artist working on a Marvel property a question, no matter how random it may be, now is your chance.

The first episode, which can be viewed at the top, sees guest Alfre Woodard of Netflix’s Luke Cage fame welcome a line of questions from inquisitive fans. If anything, we can tell that she doesn’t really seem to fantasize about being a superhero herself and instead gives some very human answers. Most interestingly, her response to whether she would rather date Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans may cause you to chuckle, so please make sure you’re not sipping a beverage when she says that »
