Keeping up with the comic book coolness that is heading our way in December, its time to shine a spotlight on the folks at Marvel Comics who will be starting our preparations into 2015 with two new titles in “SHIELD” and “All-New Miracleman Annual”. As I’ve done before, I’ve procured the cover art and creative teams behind these titles and have respectfully copied the premise from official press copy or their online descriptions for your benefit. Let’s get right down to it as I still have to work off that Thanksgiving turkey 🙂
All-New Miracleman Annual #1: It was the series that changed comics forever, injecting new sophistication into the medium and becoming one of the most significant works in comic history. Marvel is proud to present December’s ALL-NEW MIRACLEMAN ANNUAL #1, bringing you new stories from legendary talents! Celebrated comic creators Grant Morrison, Joe Quesada, Peter Milligan, and Mike Allred unite for a star-studded, can’t-miss comic event that will have the whole industry talking! “Miracleman is a legend that resonates deeply in the world of comics,” says Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. “Without its trailblazing stories, who knows what the landscape of comics would look like today? If you want to live up to that pedigree, you don’t pull any punches. That’s why we tapped two incredible creative teams — Grant Morrison and Joe Quesada; Peter Milligan and Mike Allred — for this historic annual. ALL-NEW MIRACLEMAN ANNUAL #1 is a must-read for any fan of the character, or the medium in general.” Continue reading Marvel Comics #1’s Available In December 2014→
Have you been keeping up with Marvel’s “Agents Of SHIELD” yet? If not, I understand you since the first season dragged on a little bit and at times was finding me questioning whether or not I wanted to stick with it. Of course I decided to rally behind it since once on the DVR its always easy to zip past the slow parts. Plus I wanted to see how much referencing was being done to the films that are coming out faster than ever. Anyway, the second season begins tonight and I’ve added the poster, premise and casting. Check it out.
Premise: The series follows the character of Phil Coulson, with Clark Gregg reprising his role from the films, and his team of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) agents. The season sees Coulson, the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., attempt to rebuild the organization with his team of agents and allies, following its collapse with the infiltration of the terrorist organization Hydra. They are forced to operate in secrecy due to being wanted fugitives, and hunt down the remaining threats of Hydra. Several characters from Marvel Cinematic Universe films and Marvel One-Shots appear throughout the season. (taken from Wikipedia).
I wasn’t going to post anything about this season finale, but I just had to since the last few weeks of “Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD” have been so damned good and exciting and tonight the season finale for the first go round of the show is happening on ABC. Depending on your location in the states, you will need to check your local listings. Look at the dramatic art for this episode.
Boy have there been a lot of chances to use the “Movie and TV Mania” category, but I am okay with that because we love to spark you to attention about these shows that interest us and most likely you. This has worked out so far and longer time readers probably realize that I am speaking about the day of broadcasting I’ve done when films that speak directly to our audience demographic are opening up. That being said, tonight is the night for the broadcast television premiere of Josh Whedon’s “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.”….The acronym in the Marvel Cinematic Universe stands for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division but it was originally Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division back in the early days. Then it got changed in 1991 to Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate until its most recent re-branding. For me as a fan of the organization I feel it works. Do you?
I realize that I have already said something about this but I did want to keep with my still new premise about these kinds of films and offering up a posting series that I plan to have as a standard practice as more and more films of this type come out. With that being said I raise my voice to the top of the possible volume and yell “AVENGERS ASSEMBLE” Whew….
