    Weekend Reading: Nextwave, Agents of H.A.T.E. Ultimate Edition

    NextwaveIn case you haven’t heard, Warren Ellis is a genius. Some comic book creators, like Grant Morrison, are really great at taking outdated concepts and obscure characters and updating them for the modern day. What Warren Ellis does in Nextwave is take outdated concepts and obscure heroes and turn them into an hilarious, over the top action-comedy series that’s also a whip-smart parody of comic book conventions and tropes.

      Review: Green Lantern: New Guardians #21

      Green Lantern NG21 PanelNew Guardians was always a bit of a confusing subtitle for Kyle Rayner’s ongoing Green Lantern title. It was, for the most part, free of any new guardians. Rather, for the first year and a half it focused on Kyle and a group of representatives of the other lantern corps. It seems, however, that the story of Kyle Rayner becoming the White Lantern was just prelude to the events of this issue. More

              Microsoft Backs off of Xbox One Restrictions

              Xbox One

              After weeks of bad press, Microsoft has backed away from their unpopular DRM measures for the Xbox One. In an update today, Don Mattrick spent a lot of time making it sound like the once a day Internet check-ins and limitations on used game sales weren’t a massive blunder, but instead a vision that we as consumers just weren’t ready for. Now, he says, Microsoft will be giving users the freedom to own things they paid $60 for. More

                Rumor: 90 Lost Episodes of Doctor Who Recovered

                First Doctor WhoIan Levine is an interesting fellow. He’s probably the only person in the world who owns every comic book DC has ever published. He’s also one of the world’s leading experts on Doctor Who. He’s been responsible for finding a lot of the lost episodes of Doctor Who, from back in the days when the BBC erased the tapes after they aired. And now he thinks 90 of the remaining missing episodes have been found. More

                        While director J.J. Abrams is hard at work on Star Wars: Episode VII, we haven’t heard much on the project from George Lucas, who’s serving as “creative consultant” on the picture. In fact, it sounds like the Star Wars creator hasn’t even spoken to Abrams yet about the film. More

                          Who ‘Won’ E3 And Other Assorted Musings

                          Nathan Grayson | RockPaperShotgun

                          E3 happened last week! It was full of glitz and glamour and Z-list celebrities and A-list zombies and TV TV sports and cars and also games sometimes. I was there all by my lonesome, because I hate sleep and love hoarding awful press room box lunches so I can pile their damp, discarded remains into impregnable Journalism Forts. Also, to observe, learn, and then word puke forecasts of certain doom for the gaming industry onto this here Internet. You heard me: DOOOOOOOM. OK, actually, we’re probably going to be fine. But I do have some things to rant about, because I’m still sleep-deprived and grumpy. Also, there might be a slight chance of doom.      More

                            A still very crowded comic-book-movie-adaptation 2013 just got a little less so.

                            According to the Hollywood Reporter, Dimension Films has moved Sin City: A Dame To Kill For from an October 4, 2013 release to August 22, 2014. More

                              Weekend Reading: Genshiken Omnibus 1

                              The reason I’m going to Japan for this week’s pick is that Genshiken is the kind of comic you won’t often find from American comic book companies. It’s a slice of life book that focuses on a college club for otaku, The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, also known as the Genshiken. The story starts with the introduction of the Genshiken’s three newest members: Sasahara Kanji, who is shy and quiet, the outgoing and handsome yet oblivious Kosaka Makoto, and Kosaka’s girlfriend Kasukabe Saki. They’re soon joined by Ohno Kanako, a cosplayer and the first official female member of the Genshiken. More

                                Superman Unchained 1I’ve always found Superman comics to be very hit and miss. Some of the best comic books I’ve ever read are Superman comics. But a lot of Superman comics aren’t worth reading at all. Over the past ten years or so, Grant Morrison has been the only writer who really got to the essence of what makes a good Superman story.

                                  It’s Tuesday and that means that new comics are being packed into boxes and trucks and traveling across the world to the shelves of your friendly local comic book shop. And if you buy your comics digitally, well, I think that’s mostly automated. But it’s exciting, right? Who doesn’t like comic books? You know, aside from people who have only read Avengers Arena? But fear not, I’ll be guiding you to some comic books that you’ll enjoy reading. More
