Comic Book Review – Wonder Woman: The Rebirth Deluxe Edition Book 1

Ricky Church reviews Wonder Woman: The Rebirth Deluxe Edition Book 1…

One of the most consistently enjoyable titles of DC’s Rebirth initiative was Wonder Woman, with Greg Rucka returning to the title after a very successful and beloved run in the mid-00s. Rucka’s latest story featured Diana on the hunt for the truth after discovering her past and memories had been altered, creating a modern origin for her along the way. Wonder Woman: The Rebirth Deluxe Edition Book 1 collects the first half of Rucka’s new run, alternating between the past and present in a compelling and introspective tale.

Rucka’s characterization of Wonder Woman captures the essence of the character in both timelines. Much like how they were presented in single issue format, the book alternates between Wonder Woman as a seasoned warrior and a youthful girl who enters man’s world for the first time. This

Eerie Artwork from New Story Collection Corpse Cold: New American Folklore, Inspired by Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

  • DailyDead
Do you pine for the days when a stack of Fear Street paperbacks were always within arm's reach, or when Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark held a permanent residence on your nightstand? If so, then you'll likely dig the cemetery-set scares that authors John Brhel and Joe Sullivan are cooking up with their new story collection Corpse Cold: New American Folklore.

A collection that is enjoying a successful Kickstarter campaign, Corpse Cold: New American Folklore includes eye-popping artwork by Chad Wehrle that will remind you of illustrator Stephen Gammell's seminal work for Alvin Schwartz's chilling stories.

We have additional details and a look at some of Wehrle's eerie artwork below, and to learn more about this story collection, which is expected to arrive on bookshelves late this year, visit the book's official Kickstarter page.

Len Wiseman Brewing ‘Underworld’ TV Series, Says ‘Die Hard: Year One’ Still Happening

  • The Playlist
The “Underworld” franchise has achieved the remarkable feat of lasting five films, but making no real impact on the pop culture sphere. The series — which is best known as that one where Kate Beckinsale wears leather and points guns at people — has always made a tidy profit, and pulled in enough overseas to justify making another one, but no one actually cares about the films. (Do they?) In fact, before last year’s “Underworld: Blood Wars,” there was already talk of rebooting the property entirely, and while they ultimately decided to continue for one more flick, the time has arrived to give it a fresh coat of paint.

Insights: From Venice to Vegas, Virtual Reality Keeps Evolving As Ar Grabs the Stage

Over the next few weeks, you’ll hear a lot about augmented reality, as Google, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft all make big pushes. Ar, they’ll be saying, is going to be huge and transformative. Yep, they’re probably right.

It’s worth noting the hype comes just a year after similar big noises were made about Ar’s more immersive cousin, virtual reality. In the year since, Vr’s momentum has slowed, the red-hot hype cooling to sludge. Despite that, I think it’s way too soon to write off the technology. In fact, now that the hype has eased, Vr and its many creators are starting to get a lot more interesting, innovative, and substantive. With luck, they’ll also make it all pencil out financially.

This month, in cities as wildly different as Venice, Italy and Las Vegas, Nevada, some of the new frontiers shaping Vr, on

The 2017 Muriels Hall Of Fame Inductees

The history of the Muriel Awards stretches aaaalllll the way back to 2006, which means that this coming season will be a special anniversary, marking 10 years of observing the annual quality and achievement of the year in film. (If you don’t know about the Muriels, you can check up on that history here.) The voting group, of which I am a proud member, having participated since Year One, has also made its personal nod to film history by always having incorporated 10, 25 and 50-year anniversary awards, saluting what is agreed upon by ballot to be the best films from those anniversaries during each annual voting process.

But more recently, in 2013, Muriels founders Paul Clark and Steven Carlson decided to expand the Muriels purview and further acknowledge the great achievements in international film by instituting The Muriels Hall of Fame. Each year a new group of films of varying number would be voted upon and,

Seth Rogen and Good Universe producing R-rated comedy Good Boys

Deadline is reporting that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures is teaming up with Good Universe to produce a new R-rated comedy entitled Good Boys.

The film has been written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (The Office), who will make their feature directorial debuts on the project. Their previous credits include the script for Year One, as well as writing and producing Bad Teacher.

Good Boys is said to be in the same vein as the likes of Superbad and Sausage Party, and “follows four 12 year olds caught between childhood innocence and lewd teenage corruption, who embark on an epic quest from Tarzana to the Sherman Oaks Galleria to replace a broken drone before their parents get home.”

Panel Discussion #43

Hello again, and welcome to the recently resurrected Panel Discussion. I’m Kieran, and every week I’m going to go through some of the best comics of the week to give you an idea what you should pick up that you might have missed. This is another stacked week with some fantastic first issues and great jumping on points for books you might be behind on, so let’s take a look at what’s on offer.

You probably already know this because it’s one of the big buzz books of the year, but the best comic this week by a long stretch is Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ Mister Miracle #1 which is a thought-provoking and unsettlingly down-to-Earth take on one of Jack Kirby’s greatest creations. This issue will certainly leave you with more questions than answers, but it’s important to know that you don’t

Gotham Season 4 Premiere Moved Up, Comic Book Influences Revealed

If enduring Gotham‘s summer hiatus has been especially hard for you, then know that some of the news we’re discussing today should please you. You’re still going to have to wait a while for season 4 to premiere, but Fox has decided to move the Batman prequel series’ returning episode up by one week. In other words, the next leg of Bruce Wayne’s journey will now commence on Thursday, September 21 (via Coming Soon).

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about what’s to come on the show itself. By now, it’s certainly no secret that Gotham is a bold retelling of the Dark Knight’s beginnings – oftentimes its reassembling of the parts is to the chagrin of staunch purists – but the producers do have to look to the source material here and there for inspiration.

Review Round-Up: Camera Obscura, Aaron’S Blood, and The Little Hours

  • DailyDead
June ended up being a particularly busy month of releases, and here’s a look at three different indie films that I had the opportunity to check out over the last several weeks:

Camera Obscura: For his feature film directorial debut, co-writer/director Aaron B. Koontz concocts his own “weird episode of Goosebumps” (to borrow a phrase from the film) in Camera Obscura, which feels like a mash-up of Shutter (the original, not the remake) and Final Destination, with a bit of a slasher twist thrown in for good measure. Koontz deftly maneuvers through familiar genre tropes to create an unexpected horror treat, anchored by a strong performance from Christopher Denham (Shutter Island, The Bay).

In Camera Obscura, we meet photographer Jack Zeller (Denham), who has been struggling with Ptsd after returning from shooting photos in the Middle East. His supportive fiancée, Claire (Nadja Bobyleva), decides to pick him

Comic Book Review – Wonder Woman #25

Ricky Church reviews Wonder Woman #25…

Writer Greg Rucka weaves together the threads of “The Lies,” “Year One,” “The Truth,” and “Godwatch”—every story in Wonder Woman since the start of the DC Universe Rebirth era—in this extra-sized anniversary issue!

See Also: Check out a preview of Wonder Woman #25 here

Greg Rucka’s time on Wonder Woman finally comes to an end with #25 in a bittersweet anniversary issue. He wraps up nearly everything in his run, but sends Diana off with an emotional resolution that caps off everything he’s been building towards since the very first issue.

Rather than focusing on the loose threads left in his story, such as Cheetah’s or Doctor Cyber’s whereabouts, Rucka ops to examine Diana’s character and her emotional state following the events of Wonder Woman #23 and #24. It’s a side of Diana that we rarely see, one consumed by anger,

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #9 Review

This review contains some spoilers.

Although I found the previous issue to be less than stellar, it’s well-documented that I’ve been a strong advocate of Dark Knight III: The Master Race. This week, it’s forced to pass its true litmus test because the closing chapter will ultimately determine if it’s the stuff of legend (The Dark Knight Returns) or a complete farce (The Dark Knight Strikes Again!).

While we may need more time and perspective in order to properly determine if this entry in the series is indeed legendary, I will say that it’s a worthy successor to the original through and through, and that Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello have succeeded in crafting something that needs to adorn the shelves of all Batfans.

An undeniable strong suit of this book has been its ability to callback to Miller’s earlier works without seeming like a rehash.
