Welcome to Altered States… Dynamite Entertainment’s parallel reality in the vein of DC’s Elseworlds and Marvel’s What If! Ella Normandy is one of three space explorers sent on an expedition to Venus—But on the way to their destination, the interplanetary ship is sucked into a mysterious space-time portal and ends up crash-landing on the alien planet Drakulon, where the rivers run with blood. There she climbs from the wreckage to find herself the only human on a planet filled with vampires—and no way to get back home!
The once battered and disorganized property of Spider-Man movies at Sony is getting a new lease on life with the help of Marvel's Daredevil director Drew Goddard. He'll write and direct the reboot now that he's done with the Netflix series. This will not be an origin story, Peter Parker will be in high school and no he has not been cast yet.
Join Gallery 1988 THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, March 6th from 7-10 PM, for a special engagement art exhibit from artist Megan Majewski. Over the span of 100 days, Megan painted 100 paintings, no matter what she encountered that day, or how tired she was, she still completed a painting. The painstaking process proved to be both frustrating and rewarding. The results of this experiment will be on display at G1988 (East).

The hit of any party!
The pressure is on for Josie as the conflict increases between her cozy suburban home life and her work as a paid killer! No one said it’d be easy to be a wife and mother, but now she faces her toughest job yet—one where she’ll find out how cold-blooded she really is.
I can't help be more critical in Vikings season three when it should be hitting its stride and elevating the journey of the Norsemen. It hasn't been bad so far, but the slow start hasn't helped distinguishing itself. It doesn't help when the show's most dynamic character, Ragnar, is little more than an observer thus far. Still, there is an abundance of simmering subplots.

One of the great things about this renaissance of superhero television is the long memory of showrunners who bring back actors who made their mark in tights. Helen Slater played Supergirl in the 1984 theatrical release and Dean Cain famously donned the cape as Superman/Clark Kent on ABC's Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman in the '90s. They will have guest starring roles in CBS's upcoming Supergirl series.
Batman didn’t always have kick-ass video games as this Honest Trailer reminds us, but it also spotlights when everything changed for the Dark Knight. In 2009, Rocksteady Studios finally managed to give Batman the gritty and dark gameplay he deserved. In Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman has to survive a gauntlet of villains on his way to stop the Joker from detonating bombs in Gotham City. Check out the brutally honest take from Smosh Games.
The Vertigo Comics adaptation of iZombie got a new poster from the CW with star Rose McIver getting her hands dirty with some tasty brains. The dark comedy from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas debuts March 17.
More of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes arrive in these three new posters for Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”! Check out the posters below and see the movie in theaters on May 1.
Despite the baby steps taken by publishers and filmmakers to diversify the landscape of comic book heroes, digital artist and designer Alijah Villian decided to take matters into his own hands. He took well-known movie posters of popular comic book films and reimagined them with black actors. The result is incredible and proof that heroism is not bound by color.
Beloved actor and writer, Leonard Nimoy, passed away from pulmonary disease today at age 83. The actor best known for his portrayal of the stoic and logical Mr. Spock on the pop culture phenomenon Star Trek television series became a fan-favorite that has endured for almost fifty years. While he’s most identified with the classic sci-fi show and the many big screen movies that followed, Nimoy was an accomplished stage actor, director, author, musician, photographer, poet, narrator and Army vet. ‘Live long and prosper’ was his catchphrase and he certainly did. R.I.P. Mr. Nimoy.

The Superhero Team -Up Show Includes Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Caity Lotz and Victor Garber So Far
As the premiere date for PlayStation Network’s first original series, Powers, draws near they’ve released a new trailer and a behind-the-scenes featurette. The series is based on the comic book series of the same name by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.
Syd is still learning to control her powers while also dispensing some street justice in the process. They're Not Like Us #3 continues the development of the new recruit in the house of young gifted people whose mantra comes from their cynical leader The Voice. The question is what does it all mean and where is it headed?
A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
Graveyard Shift #3 begins with a satiated Hope returning to Liam for some sexy time but he senses something's wrong. She's overly amorous as if she's drunk but it's not alcohol she's been sipping but instead a conveniently available punk in an alley. Life as a vampire takes some getting used to and there's a learning curve that both Liam and Hope have to adjust to as they track down the other vampires.

The season finale of Agent Carter, ‘Valediction,’ provided a nice conclusion to the exciting miniseries, but it did so with less Peggy Carter. The driving force of the series took a back seat to the men of the SSR and Howard Stark. Stark turned himself in when news of the psychosis-inducing gas attack in the theater broke out and left tens of people dead. It then became all about how Stark and the agents were going to lure Leviathan out in the open. And to top it off when all is said and done Agent Thompson gets the credit for the operation. What kind of evil twist is this?
Dark Circle Comics is off to a great start in establishing itself as a mature and exciting publisher of hero fare far removed from its Archie parents. The Black Hood #1 by Duane Swierczynski and Michael Gaydos hits the ground running with the first person account of Philadelphia patrolman Greg Hettinger and his descent into drug abuse and ascent into vigilantism. It’s a brutally realistic look at a man who’s deconstructed before our eyes and reborn into the hero (or is it anti-hero?) he’s been made out to be. It’s a refreshing character study that sizzles like a 1970’s action thriller.

Lionsgate may be making a film adaptation that's more in-line with the classic Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, full of bright costumes and enthusiastic teenagers. Well, for director Joseph Khan and producer Adi Shankar they chose to make a short film that's more Tarantino and Terminator.
