Are you still running on a Daredevil high from over the weekend? We sure are, and we’re working on our big post-binge review which you’ll see this week. But in the meantime, for those who are done watching, how do you fill that Marvel-Netflix shaped hole that Charlie Cox and company have left in your […]
Here’s a fun way to open your Monday morning; the next trailer for Ant-Man has appeared before your eyes. In all the marketing push for Avengers: Age of Ultron (which opens next month), it’s almost easy to forget Marvel has another film opening this year, but here’s your newest look at the Paul Rudd-starring adventure. […]
This past weekend Marvel and Netflix brought the gritty street story of Daredevil back onto our screens to make us all forget about 2003’s… unpleasantness. While the streaming service rarely produces concrete numbers as far as viewership goes; the consensus among social media seems to be that the show was an unmitigated success. Not only was […]
While most of us are still working our way through our Daredevil binge-watches on Netflix this weekend, a little bit of news regarding New York’s other masked vigilante broke today, as Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige relayed some interesting tidbits about the casting process for Spider-Man to Collider. There’s been a lot of discussion surrounding […]
Marvel’s Princess Leia #1 was the #1 book in March according to Diamond’s just released sales charts….another month for a female led title to top the charts following Spider-Gwen last month. Howard the Duck #1 also made the top ten, a pretty strong debut.
And yes, I know the Marvel Star Wars franchise is so strong (esp. with variant covers) that they could put out a Nien Nunb #1 and it would probably top the charts, but Spider-Gwen and Ms Marvel also made strong showings elsewhere so this is not a fluke.
The first press screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron was held tonight in Los Angeles and New York, and Disney is apparently so confident in the film that there is no social media embargo for any critic attending these screenings. As such, there are quite a few reactions hitting Twitter. Here are the ones I […]

Despite hitting a series low ratings point in its desired demo just a week ago, ABC is apparently looking to spin-off their freshman Marvel television series according to Entertainment Weekly. As for the subject matter, that remains a mystery, but here are the relevant details that EW was able to obtain: We’re told a spinoff […]
Speaking of Daredevil, infographic whiz Kate Willaert created this diagram of Matt Murdock throughout the years for Shirts.com . It is a notable fact that while the Kirby/Ditko/Bullpen team generally hit a home run with all their character designs, the one that was a little squibbler straight to the pitcher was Daredevil’s red and yellow […]
Welcome to a new analysis of the Marvel sales. Reminder: I’m the French guy who took over Jason for this column. Less figures, a comparaison with the issue#2 sales and some TPB sales at the end are the only big differences you could notice.
Reminder: those sales are estimates, sales to comics shops in North America. American comics do get sold somewhere else in their original floppy edition. Keep also in mind that just because a copy is sold to a shop doesn’t mean it’s sold to a customer. This would be way too easy.
It’s a little hard to be sure what the fate of each title will be after Secret wars: Marvel did release a list of the titles that will come back after the event, and confirmed that The Last Days banner was for titles that will stop publication. But, frankly, it’s hard to believe the list, and seeing that a title can be cancelled to be relaunched one month later with no differences, the word “cancellation” can lose some of its meaning. I’m pretty sure they will change their mind on the way and that, in fact, they are not sure yet which titles will come back, waiting for how many copies those Battleword titles will sell before taking their real decisions.
