A TMNT commission Erik Larsen did at Emerald City Comicon 2014. Now that is what a Ninja Turtle should look like. You paying attention, Michael Bay?

…Where do I even begin? I have not been a fan of Michael Bay’s Transformer films and he’s pretty much just taken that formula then slapped it on some innocent turtles. It looks like another series of frenetic images cobbled together on a loose plot with Megan Fox running through scene after scene. Maybe there will be more to it than that but the last minute re-castings of key characters does not bode well.
Still, I’ll most likely be in the theater for this one opening weekend. You win again, Michael.

So…if you’re not a fan of the continuing centralization of our media into the hands of a select few, you might want to look away for this one. Amazon.com recently announced that they would be purchasing comiXology, the exceedingly successful platform for distributing and consuming comics digitally.
Is this a good or a bad thing? Amazon has long been on an almost vindictive mission to run brick and mortar stores out of business, and comiXology makes another good weapon in that fight. On the other hand, Amazon’s short story singles downloadable for the Kindle have reputedly been an interesting and effective means of distribution for many authors.
Ah, who knows? There are a lot of potential pinnacles and pitfalls for consumers in this deal. All we can really ask is that they don’t mess comiXology up completely.Source: comixology
If there was ever someone I was going to trust on the status of comic book films and TV series, it would be David S. Goyer. He is the writer behind the Blade film franchise, Christopher Nolan’s Batman film series, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, and Man of Steel as well as the upcoming Constantine, Batman vs. Superman, Justice League, and potentially another Green Lantern film.
He also wrote that terrible Nick Fury movie David Hasslehoff did in the late 90s but let’s not hold that against him.
Recently, IGN asked him about Warner Bros. goals for a DC Film Universe comparable to Marvel’s. Not surprisingly, he was non-committal and vague in his response. His response boiled down to the fact that he’s impressed by what Marvel’s done in creating a cohesive film/TV brand but doesn’t see it necessarily as the goal for DC’s film and TV offerings.
I freely admit that I’d love to see one universe for DC on the big and small screens the way Marvel has but I’m also fine if they don’t as long as they make decent films and TV shows. I’d just like them to pick a clear direction and stick with it.Source: ca.ign.com

Finally. It’s coming. After being delayed for six months, Ubisoft’s Watch_Dogs is hitting shelves May 27th. Initial footage shown at E3 a couple of years ago looked amazing and if Ubisoft wants to take some extra time to put a polish on it, that’s cool. I’m fine with that.
And thankfully this one is out for PS3.Source: ca.ign.com
