Aquaman Volume 2: The Others continues to re-establish the King of Atlantis's position as a super hero just as important to the DC Universe as Green Lantern or The Flash. The second collection of the monthly series contains issues #7 through 13. Writer Geoff Johns and artist Ivan Reis energetically bring the character's complex and adventurous tales to life.
When Black Mantis begins killing off members of Aquaman's first super hero team, he is forced to re-join them and keep the super-villain from gathering together ancient and powerful Atlantean relics for his own evil purposes. Black Mantis's motivation is fueled even more by his hatred and thirst for revenge against Aquaman, which makes him even more volatile and motivated. Will Aquaman allow the Others to help him in the fight against his greatest foe, or will he drive them away to keep the team safe from a fury he feels responsible for creating? »

The eagle-eyed lads at Bleeding Cool have spotted the following in the solicit for Nova #7.. Nova #7 Zeb Wells (W) • Paco Medina (A) Cover by Ed McGuinness • Nova’s Eventful World-Wide Adventure Rockets Roaringly Into Our Renegade Spider! • Zeb Wells (“Robot Chicken”, dressing as Thor on the internet) and Paco Medina (Ultimate X-Men) continue the story of Marvel’s newest, least experienced hero: Sam Alexander. • We’ll get to tying into Infinity next month, but you should probably pick this one up first. 32 Pgs./Rated T+ …$3.99 It's unlikely that it's a coincidence, so assuming that it's not, it'd be a fair bet that Marvel have something planned for the New Warriors. The original team was made up of supporting characters from other ongoing series, and consisted of Nova, Speedball, Namorita, Marvel Boy, Firestar and Night Thrasher. But there have been many incarnations since, with additions such as Darkhawk, Scarlet Spider, Dagger »
May the 4th may be gone for another year, but as far as we are concerned, every day is a day to celebrate and embrace all things Star Wars, for obvious reasons based on a neat little pun. So, we’re taking the opportunity to take a look back at some of the best examples of Star Wars references in our popular culture. This list could extend for pages, but in the interest of time I have compiled seven of my favourite picks. Some are longer than others, but all will keep you entertained.
I have omitted overly obvious things like the Star Wars-obsessed film Fanboys, Star Wars: Robot Chicken and the Friends episode “The One With the Princess Leia Fantasy”, which confirms Ross’ fantasy of having Rachel dress up as Princess Leia. I also believe that is the only Star Wars reference in Friends…This is a common one, »

With the exception of the classic seminal Hitch-Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, funny science-fiction shows are in short supply. So much so, in fact, that I believe Red Dwarf may be the only one around — who mentioned Hyperspace? Get the hell out of here! The thing about it is that it doesn’t just lampoon science-fiction: that would be easy enough to do, as films like Spaceballs and Galaxy Quest, and even the Robot Chicken Star Wars have shown us. But it’s a lot harder to be properly respectful to the thing you’re putting a humorous slant on, and to understand and embrace it, than it is just to basically make a laugh out of it. And Red Dwarf has I believe managed to straddle the border between serious or at least semi-serious sci-fi and comedy, without totally sliding over onto either side.
Now you might say that’s wrong, »

We'll find out soon enough!
Hamm has now signed on to star, as it were, opposite Sandra Bullock in Illumination Entertainment's "Minions," a follow-up to the wildly successful animated flick "Despicable Me" which puts focus on those hilarious little scuttle bugs.
The Minion-centric spin-off prequel will journey back in time to a point when the energetic little monsters served another super horrible and world domination-hungry master: Bullock's Scarlet Overkill. Hamm will portray her husband Herb.
Hamm and Herb. Huh. Sounds like a pretty tasty dish.
This isn't Hamm's first animated role, of course. In addition to guest stints on the cartoon programs "Bob's Burgers," "Archer" and "Robot Chicken," he also voiced Brogan the Ogre in "Shrek Forever After. »

A new five issue limited series is being created by writer Kevin Shinick (Avenging Spider-Man, Robot Chicken) and artist Stephen Segovia (X-treme X-Men, Thor) involving a classic foe of the famous New York City Wall-Crawler.
The homicidal villain, Carnage, is deteriorating in the confines of his asylum—but his fellow inmates are not giving up just yet! Watch as their Frankenstein-style experiment unfolds for better or for worse. Can they restore the deadliest of the symbiotes to its former glory, or better yet, do they have what it takes to build a more dastardly, more sinister, more superior Carnage?
“I'm really excited to be working on Superior Carnage. It's very rare that you can say the words "Like you've never seen him before!" and truly mean it,” explains Shinick. “But Stephen and I have been working on some great designs for what happens when the Wizard attempts to turn Carnage »
Sunglasses at night? Macaulay Culkin showed off a playful (and colorful) look when he visited the opening night of the 50th Foire du Trone at Pelouse De Reuilly in Paris on Friday. Wearing red sunglasses and a paisley patterned shirt with his long hair tied back, the 32-year-old actor couldn't hide his smile as he enjoyed the fair - which generally features over 350 attractions spanning across 25 acres. According to IMDb, Culkin - who split from Mila Kunis in 2011 after eight years together - most recently lent his voice to animated series Robot Chicken. - Maggie Coughlan »
Great Scott! Psych has reached episode number 100!
And how better to celebrate the milestone for the oft-’80s-referencing, wacky USA Network show than to salute a wacky ’80s movie? Psych’s 100th episode, which airs tonight, fully embraces its Clue theme, complete with guest stars plucked right from the 1985 film: Lesley Ann Warren (Clue’s Miss Scarlet), Martin Mull (Colonel Mustard), and Christopher Lloyd (Professor Plum).
In Psych’s nod to the cult classic, Shawn and Gus are invited to a mysterious party at a historic Santa Barbara mansion. Not long after they arrive and meet their fellow guests, there »

"Amanda Knox for partying; Jesus Christ for dinner…" Mindy Kaling is drawing up the imaginary guestlists for her almost-as-imaginary social life, explaining that the most important rule comes down to inviting "no one funny. Except for me. So I would seem funnier in light of that."
Kaling is pro-league funny, though. Not "ha ha, that's cute" funny, but "ha ha, I'm writing, producing, directing and starring as the lead in my own sitcom because I'm that bloody funny" funny. And she is. Most viewers who first saw her in the Us Office, playing the spectacularly vapid Kelly Kapoor, probably wouldn't have known that she started on the series as a staff writer at just 24. Kaling was the only woman in the writers' room, holding her own against four New Yorkers who had all, »

Exclusive: As his TBS series Men At Work is gearing up for its second-season premiere on April 4, Breckin Meyer has signed an overall deal with Sony Pictures Television, which produces the multi-camera comedy. This marks the first overall writer-producer pact for Meyer, who created and executive produces Men At Work. Additionally, it expands his relationship with Sony TV, which also is behind TNT dramedy series Franklin & Bash, in which Meyer stars. Both are co-produced by Jamie Tarses’ Sony TV-based Fanfare. Under the pact with Sony TV, Meyer will develop and produce new projects for the studio. Before Men At Work, Meyer, repped by ICM Partners, Thruline and David Weber, worked as a writer on Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken, on which he also is a voice cast member. He also co-wrote an episode of Franklin & Bash last year. »

This will take many fans by surprise, but it appears that as a result of Disney taking control of Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franchise, The Clone Wars animated TV series is set to be cancelled. The massively successful and critically acclaimed series is to be wound down after five series. This is being dubbed the “Star Wars TV massacre” by media outlets and the online reaction has prompted the following statement from Lucasfilm;
“As we enter into an exciting new era focused on the next Star Wars trilogy, Lucasfilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programming.”
However, Lucasfilm is planning on putting new small-screen series animated series into production at a later date, which will explore “a whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming.” This could really refer to anything at this point.

Actor Billy Dee Williams, who played Rebel General Lando Calrissian in Star Wars Episode V and VI was asked by a Film Buff Online source, whether he had been contacted to reprise his old role and whether he would do it:
“Billy Dee said, he has been asked, but hasn’t decided if he is going to do it or not yet.”
We now know that the three main actors from the original trilogy: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford will return. However, it would be even sweeter if supporting characters like General Lando and Chewbacca returned as well.
Williams is turning 76 years old next month which is probably one of the reasons why he hasn’t jumped onboard so quickly. There don’t seem to be any qualms over returning to the universe, since he has done so already on the show Robot Chicken. He also appeared in »

Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken has established itself as the premier parody of geek culture, devouring decades of sci-fi/fantasy/superhero/videogame history and spitting it back out. Last year’s cult hit The Cabin in the Woods began as a parody of the teen-horror genre and built up to a final sequence that resembled a bloodier version of Airplane! This Sunday, the two meta-parodies will meet. Chicken’s season finale features an extended Cabin riff — check out an exclusive preview below!
