'Terminus' Trailer: Earth Is Running Out of Time
As the country slips into chaos, a strange creature surfaces in a small town in the first trailer for Terminus. This sci-fi thriller from Vertical Entertainment is set for release on January 22, 2016 in theaters and on VOD, going up against The 5th Wave, The Boy and Dirty Grandpa. As you can see in the footage below, the arrival of a mysterious alien changes everything for inhabitants of a sleepy town.

Blinded by the light of a falling meteor, David has a devastating car accident, leading to a profound discovery: an extraterrestrial organism that may contain the secret of life itself. When David goes missing for two days, Annabelle searches for her father only to discover him wandering the forest, without so much as a scratch. David's mysterious reappearance draws the attention of federal authorities and gives Annabelle reason to doubt his sanity.

But David has a new sense of purpose,

Comic Book Movie Preview 2012: 'Avengers' Finally Assembles

Captain America. Thor. Iron Man. In one movie. Together. What more needs to be said?

At long last, "The Avengers" finally assembles this year, and the Marvel Studios surefire (we hope) epic assembles on our radar as the number two most anticipated comic book movie of 2012. The size, scale and scope of this unprecedentedly ambitious project demands attention not just from comics fans, but from all corners of the movie-loving landscape.

In "The Avengers," Earth's Mightiest Heroes are called to action to combat a seemingly impossible threat in the form of Loki (Tom Hiddleston), the exiled Asgardian whose notorious flair for deviousness has only increased since his self-inflicted banishment. Called to stop him are Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), the goateed billionaire playboy who sometimes amuses himself by flying around in red-and-gold tech-infused armor; Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), the freshly defrosted World War II hero known the world over as

Michael Davis: Why I Like The New 52

  • Comicmix
Because I’m trying to kiss the ass of DC Comics.

The end.

Well that’s not really true. If you know anything about my history you will know the last thing I’d ever do is kiss ass.

It’s simply not in my DNA not now, not ever. I’ve been in many a situation where a well place smack on someone’s ass would have been very beneficial to me but I just couldn’t do it.

I’ve tried to kiss some ass. I really have. I wanted to kiss some ass. I was even looking forward (she was fine) to kissing some ass at one point but I just… could… not…do it.

What always stops me is my inability to show respect to those who do not deserve it.

Respect is a very big thing with me. I’d rather have someone’s respect than just about anything else.

2012 Graphic Novel & TPBs to Watch

The Flash | DC | W: Brian Buccellato | W+A: Francis Manapul

I’ve held off on getting the singles of this series so that I can pick up a lovely hardback of Francis Manapul’s gorgeous work. Like Jw Williams III on Batwoman, Manapul plays around with the comic page format to aid in the story telling process, in the process creating some stunning images.

Batwoman | DC | W: Jh Williams III, Hayden Blackman | A: Jh Williams III

Again like The Flash I’ve held off on getting the singles of this series so that I have more reason to buy the beautiful hardback that I know is coming in 2012. I cannot wait to get my hands on the first arc of the new Batwoman series, and see just how far Williams can push the comic medium.

Eerie Archives Volume 9

  • shocktillyoudrop
If you're like me, you love horror stuff from any generation. The '30s, the '50s, '70s, presentd day...it doesn't matter. It's in the genre and I dig it. But there's something about vintage horror stuff that's appealing. I know when I see old movie posters I want them because they simply don't make posters like that anymore. There's just something charming about things from an era that I didn't come from.

I've spoken previously about the resurgence of horror in comics, but Dark Horse is now trying to bring back the old horror comics for the new era. In the hardcover collection of Eerie Archives Volume 9 we get reprints of five classic issues of Eerie magazine. This publication is easily before my time, but I'm familiar with the idea of these types of books (thanks to my love for Tales from the Crypt and Creepshow). Using

Non-Gaming Game News For the Week Ending December 23

Blue Dragon's anime adaptation gets a second season released in the U.S., The Old Republic takes comics, and Mass Effect gets a fancy art book and third issue of its Dark Horse miniseries.

Mass Effect: Invasion #3 and The Art of Mass Effect Hardcover

We've got a one-two shot of releases here: the first is the current issue of the ongoing miniseries set on the Omega space station hitting shelves and digital distribution this past Wednesday, and the other is a big, glossy hardcover coming in February, both from publisher Dark Horse Comics. Invasion is written by Mac Walters and John Jackson Miller with art by Omar Francia. Walters was actually one of the writers on Mass Effect 3, so you can at least be sure the canon will be intact (Dark Horse is actually billing this as "An essential lead-in to Mass Effect 3"). Here's what they're saying about the story:

Nexus Returns in Dark Horse Presents #12!

  • ScifiMafia
Press Release:

Dark Horse Comics announces the return of Nexus in Dark Horse Presents #12.

The fan-favorite title returns with its team of creators, Mike Baron (The Badger) and Steve Rude (The Moth), in their respective positions of writer and artist! Baron and Rude created Nexus in 1981 and have been continuing their canonical tale for thirty years. The Eisner Award winners will craft a brand-new three-part story for readers eager to quench their thirst for what’s next to come in the Nexusverse.

“The new stories crush anvils,” says Mike Baron.

“Nexus has never been a stranger to different publishers. Last seen under the Rude Dude banner in 2009, Nexus has stayed in limbo, never quite knowing when to return, or if he ever would return. Things come together in strange ways. With the backing of Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Comics, Nexus will return to comics,” Steve Rude said. “We especially
