Adam Hughes Covers Doctor Who!

Last month Titans Comics announced that superstar writer Dan Slott would tackle Doctor Who in a series of specials. The first one would focus on the 10th Doctor and Martha, collaborating with artist Christopher Jones.

Dan Slott Swings From Spider-Man To The Doctor!

One of the best comics writers working for Marvel will take a trip in the TARDIS. Dan Slott (various Spider-Man titles, Fantastic Four) has been announced to be writing three Doctor Who specials for Titan Comics. Better yet, for at least the first special, he’s working with an artist who knows his way around the various Time Lords,…

Make Mine Spider-Geddon

If it all has to end, let it be with a deluge of young men and women with spider-based powers. At least, that’s what I’m getting from the title of Marvel’s next big event — Spider-Geddon! Spinning out of the Spider-Verse (a concept the mainstream will be VERY familiar with come the holiday season), Spider-Geddon features…

The Silver Surfer Journeys To The Past

In recent years, Dan Slott and the Allreds have turned the Silver Surfer into a character full of more than inspiration — they made him fun. That’s reflected in the redesigned logo for the character, much jauntier than the one used for decades. Seeing that juxtaposed against a grim, powerful Philip Tan cover just seems…

Into The Spider-Verse…

Today, Sony gave us a deeper look into the second of their two Spider-Man related movies in the last half of 2018. (Don’t forget about Venom, wisely opening in time for Halloween.) And Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse looks… like everything fun that could possibly happen when Sony tries desperately to show off what a Marvel Studios-less Spider-Man…

The Fantastic Four Teaser

We covered this when Marvel teased it a couple of weeks ago, but we didn’t get an actual cover. Now we have something closer to one for Fantastic Four #1, and the team looks… just a little bit different. Just a little bit. The Thing looks very Hulk-like to me. What’s more interesting in light of…

The Fantastic Four Return; At Least In Comics

By launching into space, they launched the Marvel Age of Comics. Not officially seen since the end of Secret Wars, the Fantastic Four will finally return this summer — with a creative team that could rival the best that have worked on the book: Dan Slott and Sara Pichelli. Since Slott has already brought the right…

A Few Words About ‘The Clone Conspiracy’

I’m talking about, of course, how many books Charles Soule is able to write while maintaining a full-time job running a law practice. There has to be many Charles Soules. But seriously, this might be the place where a long-time fan of a certain age needs to step away from having loved Spider-Man. Not because…

The 2016 Eisner Award Nominees

Comic-Con International released the list of Eisner Award nominations today. For those unfamiliar, the Eisners are akin to the comics industry’s Academy Awards, nominated by a panel of six judges. Last year, the panel included Friend of Fanboy Planet (and owner of Earth-2 Comics in Sherman Oaks and Northridge, California) Carr D’Angelo. Categories for the…

Peter Parker Faces His Past In “Dead No More”

Dan Slott has a way of twisting the Amazing Spider-Man in directions that cause outcry ahead of time and then deliver on great stories. Upset that Doctor Octopus has taken over Peter Parker’s body? The Superior Spider-Man was a great story. Angry that suddenly Peter is like Tony Stark, Jr.? The current run has been…

The Silver Surfer Returns in January!

If you’ve listened to the podcast, you know we’re big fans of the work Dan Slott and Mike Allred have been doing on this book — a fresh take on a character who is almost iconic, but rarely well used as the centerpiece of a story. We worried that this book would not revive post-Secret…
