It feels like the start of a good week here at the office so we’re gonna try our best at helping you have a good one yourself by giving away ONE (1) of the below DVD collections to a winner chosen at random! The winner will have their choice of being sent ONE (1) of the following:
Marvel Comics has officially announced the upcoming new series that was teased in last week’s mysterious DNA strand teaser image, revealing that Brian Wood and Olivier Copiel will be working on a new female X-Men series due to arrive in April. The new series will feature an all-female roster that includes Storm, Psylocke, Rachel Grey, Rogue, Kitty Pryde and Jubilee. The storyline behind the title will focus on Jubilee as the main character as she takes in an orphaned baby that may hold the fate of the survival of the human race.
Newsarama has exclusively revealed the details, including the release date and plot summary, for DC Comics’ upcoming animated feature, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. The existence of such a movie was first hinted at by Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy, who revealed that he had just completed working on a mysterious animated “Flashpoint” project – one that we presumed would be based on the hit storyline that set in motion the events leading to the ‘New 52’.
The following short film was directed, produced, financed, edited and written by Marcus Alqueres and has been playing on loop on our screens for the better half of the afternoon. Alqueres has delivered an impressive superhero-inspired short that gives us an eerie, real-life take on what we can only compare to a Punisher-esque vigilante with superpowers as he takes to the streets to punish the guilty.
The fact that it creeps us out as much as it impresses only proves that this is a truly beautiful (and powerful) piece of work.
