Thor_2_Cover

This November, bring the thunder and summon the lightning as the new Thor tests her mettle against an army of Frost Giants in THOR #2 – the highly anticipated second issue! Critically acclaimed writer Jason Aaron and rising star artist Russell Dauterman continue the epic tale of the new God of Thunder, and her unworthy predecessor. An army of massive Frost Giants have invaded Midgard, sowing destruction and chaos in their wake. The Odinson lays battered and broken at the hands of Malekith the Accursed, unable to wield his mighty hammer. To save us all, a new Thor will rise. And she may be the world’s only hope. Can she stave off the darkness? Or will she be consumed by it? On the bellow of thunder and the crack of lightning, a new Thor is born. See her in action for the first time this November in the highly anticipated THOR #2!

I’m on a mission to save kids and I need your help. My local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital [UC Davis Children's Hospital] treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few. On October 25, 2014, I’ll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games and tabletop RPG’s! It’s my sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital.

As a member of the Google Plus Extra-Life team,  we are joining the Extra Life gaming campaign where thousands of donors [like you] donate to gamers [like us] for their crazy, quirky, and down-right goofy gaming exploits during a 24 hour gaming marathon designed to raise funds and promote awareness for children across the country suffering from diseases like: Cancer, cystic fibrosis, or leukemia.  Last year, this team saddled up as super heroes, adventurers, and hobgoblins to fight evil, save princesses, and help kids in need.  We were a part of a $4,000,000 fundraising effort that saw involvement from gaming tycoons like Blizzard and Electronic Arts.

This year, we hope to do it bigger: More castles, more knee seeking arrows, and more Mountain Dew fueled insanity!  But we need your help.  Whether you’re dragon-born or not – you can help by pledging with us against the ills suffered by children throughout the world.  Every dollar goes towards a hospital that serves children in need, and every donation is tax deductible.

Submit to Inversion – Your First Look at AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #5!

Avengers_&_X-Men_AXIS_5_Cover

This November, the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe stand on the edge of a knife, and the world faces annihilation in AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #5! Blockbuster writer Rick Remender is joined by chart-topping artist Terry Dodson as Act II: Inversion gives rise to a new world DISORDER! Heroes will be broken, eyes will be opened, and a universe will tilt on its AXIS.

Splintered and alienated, the forces of Avengers and X-Men stand on opposing sides. The Red Skull has been released from his holding cell in Avengers Tower. Someone aided him. Someone who was present on Genosha. But whom? And why are the heroes and villains acting so strangely?

Narrowly escaping with their lives, Spider-Man and Nova are enlisted by Steve Rogers for a daring mission that could determine the fate of us all. The new Sorceress Supreme finally gains her revenge against the benevolent Doctor Doom. The Superior Iron Man battles Daredevil for the fate of an Extremis infected San Francisco. And in the name of survival of the fittest, the X-Men claim their new home. 

THE INFINITY GAUNTLET is Marvel’s Latest Summer 2015 Teaser

infinity-gauntlet-2015[1]


At this stage it isn’t a question if there’ll be a daily new Marvel morning ‘Summer 2015′ teaser harkening back to a classic event or storyline, but what it’ll be. Tuesday morning Comicbook.com has the latest – the Infinity Gauntlet – Jim Starlin and Ron Lim’s Thanos-centric 1991 limited series. The Infinity Gauntlet inspired several “Infinity”-related follow-up projects by Starlin over the years and of course the basic structure of Thanos trying to assemble all six of the Infinity Gems serves as the inspiration for the common through line of all of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe films.

With an image featuring Star-Lord and a whole family of Nova’s (characters that didn’t figure in the original storyline) along with Thanos, the teaser once again show whatever is happening in Summer 2015 isn’t a straight rehash of the previous storylines.

Though Marvel has yet to come out and say so, Newsarama’s money is still on all these teasers being related to Secret Wars , the 2015 mega-event that will span 12 issues starting late Spring, and is said to be the culmination of all the reality and time-travel manipulation at Marvel Comics over the past several years. The New Avenger series has seen alternate realities crashing into each other, resulting in the destruction of one or both worlds.
