The Press Release:
DC Entertainment celebrates 1000 issues of Action Comics with an all-star lineup of top talent as they pay tribute to the comic that started it all! Now, DC unveils the art for seven out of the eight variant covers, each designed to reflect a decade in the history of the Man of Steel! (I’ve started this presentation with the main cover for this particular issue for good measure – The variants will follow down after that one).

You know we love the comic book stuff over here at the PiercingMetal Media Command HQ and when there is a free comic book to be snagged at your participating comic book retailer, you know we want to share the news with you. Starting today (which is also New Comic Book Day), customers at numerous shops can get themselves a brand spanking new first issue of “World Of Krypton”. Take a look at the cover art below.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Collectors might be interested in knowing that this is a reprint of a series that went by the same name back in 1987 and featured art and story by John Byrne and Mike Mignola. This issue comes with a spiffy exclusive new cover by Jason Badower. There is also a first-look at the new series which we’ve shared some posts about too. Click HERE for those trailers. I think this new series might be good and remember it airs on SyFy on 3/21.
Hello again my friends and yes, you have arrived at yet another comic book summary. I’m hitting you hard with the new DC Comics launches that are coming out this March and several of them follow the recently told “Milk Wars” storyline that featured the Young Animals line of characters. Let’s have a look. The premise and art come from the DC resources but the closing editorial is all me. Here we go.
THE IMMORTAL MEN #1: “THE END OF FOREVER” part one! There is a secret history to the DC Universe of heroes who have protected humanity from the shadows since the dawn of time…and who can live forever. Enter the Immortal Men! The team, headed by the Immortal Man, has waged a secret war against the House of Conquest for countless years—but Conquest has dealt a devastating blow. When their base of operations, known as the Campus, is savagely attacked, the Immortal Men must seek out their last hope—an emerging metahuman known as Caden Park! Caden’s emerging powers may be able to ensure the Immortal Men’s survival—but will Conquest get to him first?
We’ve been keeping you readers informed on some of the latest tours that will be heading our way in the coming months but now its time to give something back to the homebodies that are among us and share that the fourth season premiere for The CW Network’s “iZombie” is airing tonight. The series follows the adventures of your friendly neighborhood zombie Liv Moore and you should check your local listings for the times so you don’t miss it. I’ve followed the brand new poster with some show premise and main cast. Take a look.
The Premise: Seattle medical resident Olivia “Liv” Moore is turned into a zombie while attending a boat party. She abandons her career and breaks up with her fiancé, much to the disappointment and puzzlement of her family. She discovers that if she does not periodically satisfy her new appetite for brains, she starts turning into a stereotypical zombie, stupid and homicidal. Instead of feeding by killing innocent people, Liv decides to take a job at the King County morgue and eat the brains of the corpses she autopsies. Her secret is guessed by her boss, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti. Ravi soon becomes Liv’s friend and confidant, and as a scientist, he is intrigued by her condition. Liv finds out that whenever she eats a dead person’s brain, she temporarily inherits some of their personality traits and experiences flashbacks of their life. Those visions are generally triggered by sights (events or objects) or sounds (repeated sentences). In the case of murder victims, the flashbacks offer clues about their killers. Liv decides to use this new ability to help Police Detective Clive Babineaux solve the crimes, passing herself off as a psychic, Meanwhile, Ravi works to develop a cure for Liv’s affliction, in the hope that one day she will be able to resume her former life.

As you read this, I am exploring the American International Toy Fair, a convention that I have been attending as press since 2011. While a whole lot of posts will be on my creative table once its finished, I am sharing some of the reveals that companies we’ve focused on over the years have shared. Let’s begin with the fine folks at Eaglemoss Collections.
During NY Comic Con, I learned about the latest Eaglemoss Collections series that was featuring “Batman: The Animated Series”. Wave 1 was impressive and featured Batman, Robin, Joker, Penguin, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy and now they are unveiling “Wave 2”. Check it out.
