  1. In October 2012, Marvel Comics began the Marvel NOW! event (to run until February 2013), where new writers and artists are launching new ongoing series (including some to re-use titles of earlier comic book series) as well as releasing new issues of still-running titles (namely [i]Avengers Assemble[/i], [i]Journey Into Mystery[/i] Vol. 1, and [i]Red She-Hulk[/i]) to focus on what's next for the Marvel Unvierse super-heroes in canon continuity since the Avengers Vs. X-Men event, including new sercret identities for classic heroes (ex: [i]The Superior Spider-Man[/i], to launch in January
  2. August 10, 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of Spider-Man's debut. Over the years, Marvel's most famous famous web-slinger has swung into action in comic books as well as in other forms of entertainment media. Fanboys and fangirls, as we celebrate Spidey's 50th anniversary, here is a thread where you can discuss your memories of the Spider-Man category of the Marvel Universe franchise. You can talk of things like favorite moments and battles in the Spidey comics and graphic novels, how you got into Spider-Man in the first place, the merchandise you collect (examples: statuettes,
  3. On Sept. 19, 2011, I had the chance to check out the season 9 premier episode of the hit sitcom "Two and A Half Men", which marked a turning point for the show itself as the episode introduces a new protagonal character Walden Schmidt, who takes over the house of ex-protagonist Charlie Harper, who was implied (in dialogue) to have kicked the bucket on a train track in Paris after the events in the show's season 8 finale episode. Despite Charie's demise, the show is still (in opinion) "Two and A Half Men" in spirit as the series will still center around two adult mal
  4. Here's a forum thread where you can discuss your thoughts so far about Miles Morales, the new Spider-Man of Earth-1610 (also known as the "Ultimate Marvel Universe" and the "Ultimate Comics Universe"). For those of you disappointed about the demise of Ultimate Marvel's Peter Parker in the comics, at least be happy that Ultimate Marvel isn't the mainstream Marvel Universe (Earth-616), whose Peter Parker is still not only alive and well, but also continuing his adventures as Spider-Man. Although I don't usually read Ultimate Marvel titles because I normally
  5. This week on September 8, the "Star Trek" franchise turned 45. Yes, this legendary sci-fi-genred media franchise is now 45 years old and up to date, it consists of 6 T.V. series (5 live-action and 1 animated) and 11 theatrical movies (with a 12th one currently under construction), and has over the years spanned countless novels, comic books, video games, rpgs, etc. Anyway, as we celebrate 45 years of one of America's most well-known examples of science-fiction, everybody here is welcome to discuss his/her "Star Trek" memories, whether it's about favorite moments
  6. So far, there has been a matter of controversy, regarding DC Comics' New 52 plan, which involves an attempt to revamp the image of the DC Universe for the modern readers while considering launching some new series, relaunching some already-established ones, and ending some already-established ones so as to have 52 titles running on an ongoing regular basis after August 2011. As a DC Comcis, fan, I feel the New 52 strategy is what the "DC Universe" franchise needs to boost things up in terms of appeal to a wide mainstream reading audience within North America, especially in a time
  7. Are you a collector of action figures/toys based on Science-Fiction/Horror/Fantasy/Anime or are somebody who just want to get into the hobby? Say no more, because on June 19, 2011, the 2011 Montreal ToyCon will be held at the Courtyard near Marriott Montreal Airport (7000 Place Robert-Joncas St-Laurent, Quebec H4M 2Z5 Canada). This is an event that may be of your interest and who knows what new or old stuff you may find at the even Also, ticket price is $4.00.

  9. [size="3"][font="Arial Black"]For all you Anime/Manga fans living Montreal (or near it), you may want to keep note that on December 5, 2010, there will be a Montreal Comic-Con event to take place. Like previous Montreal Comic-Con events, this one will happen at Place Bonaventure (800 rue de la Gauchetière Ouest, Room 200-N) and will have Manga and Anime as parts of the convention's focus. Admission will cost only $5.00 per person. Should you attend, you'll have a chance to meet guest DROO, who takes pictures of cosplayers (his website is droophotographer.devia
  10. [size="4"]Currently, I'm watching the action horror T.V. series "Corpse Princess" at U.S. Anime distributor FUNimation Entertainment's YouTube channel. Basically, this series is like "Highlander" and "Ghostbusters" combined as the story involves a once-dead fighter (that's the beautiful Makina) hunting ghosts and monsters as a job. Though I'm only at the 3rd episode of this series' 1st half, I consider this a must-watch for those who like both action and horror genres. Plus, I find that Makina has all the amazing qualities of the fict

  12. [font="Arial"]I don't know if any of you went to the Fantasia Festival 2010 event (which took place in Montreal Quebec, Canada), but did get the chance the chance to attend the festival's screening of "Space Battleship Yamato: Resurrection", and it's one of the best 2000s Japanese Animated films I've seen so far, although it's the first "Space Battleship Yamato" (Star Blazers) film ever done without the involvement of Leiji Matsumoto, who was responsible for character and mechanical designs of previous SBY Anime (excluding "Yamato 2520&quo

  14. [quote name='Magus'][FONT=franklin gothic medium][COLOR=darkred]When you say NA animated treatment, are you talking about something like the Pixar films or something in the style of Batman? If it's the Pixar/Disney style, there's Ghost in the Shell that's in the making. As far as everything on that poll, like I said, I've only seen 3 of those that're listed. (FMA, parts of Lupin, and parts of Yugioh) And unfortunately I don't think any of those can fit.[/COLOR][/FONT][/quote] I'm not referring to any specific kind of North American animation. Like Japanese Animation, North American animati
  15. [quote name='Magus'][FONT=franklin gothic medium][COLOR=darkred]Out of everything on that list I've only seen 3 shows, and out of those three the only one I can see working is Lupin the 3rd. I never thought about the Oceans series being tied to Lupin, so that'd be a really good take on it. Good eye Ace.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=franklin gothic medium][COLOR=darkred]Personally speaking though, I'm against anime/comics/games as live action movies. No matter how good or bad they are, I'd still be against them.[/COLOR][/FONT][/quote] I've heard so far, of what fans felt could work out as North
