Hello Kitty Girl Power Lg Hello Kitty Teams up with DC Comics

Sanrio, DC Entertainment and Warner Brothers entered into a licensing agreement recently to produce a line of Hello Kitty products depicting the cartoon feline dressed up as different DC superhero characters. The line will feature the usual Hello Kitty fare: stationery, clothing and accessories, but will also include food items, stuff like brushes and shampoo, and publishing which possibly means the next installment in the Dark Knight franchise (just kidding).  Viz Media has a new Hello Kitty graphic novel coming out this fall so it should only be a matter of time before the Bat Kitty hits the shelves.

xm 000 659x1024 Comic Book Review: X Men Days of Future Past TPB

X-Men Days of Future Past is one of the most renowned X-Men stories ever told. Its part of the critically acclaimed run by writer Chris Clermont and the final story drawn by John Byrne in collaboration with Clermont. For these reasons and because of the movie coming out in about a year, I decided to check this one out and see just what makes it so good and to get an idea as to how will it translate to the big screen. After reading it I hope to god they don’t do a straight up adaptation…

The first thing you should

AvengersAssemble2 TV Show Review: Avengers Assemble Premiere

We all knew this one was coming for a long time now. The new Avengers show that was given birth to once EMH was shoot in the head and left to bleed out in a dark alley. I was just as skeptical as anyone else, especially with the posters looking like amateur fan art or the promos looking like Ultimate Spider-Man. And now that the first two episodes of Avengers Assemble are out I have to say…. I kinda like it…. Now I know it has a very long way to go before it can reach the level of EMH, but

Comic Book Review: Star Wars: Darth Maul – Death Sentence

Comic Book Review: Star Wars: Darth Maul – Death Sentence

Darth Maul Death Sentence Tom Taylor Comic Book Review: Star Wars: Darth Maul – Death Sentence Darth Mauls return to the Star Wars universe was met with much controversy. The character had other actually come back a few times in the EU. Once as a clone who fought Darth Vader to the death because he saw him as an unworthy Sith Lord. Once as a personality PROXY used to fight his master Starkiller in FU1. But his return in Clone Wars Season 4 was the first time the original Maul from Phantom Menace would be coming back in a canon story. I personally had the same thought process as when Jason Todd came back. If they manage …

Weapon150color Artist Spotlight: WarHawks Joel Gomez

I first met Joel Gomez about 2 years ago at Long Beach Comic Con.  He had his own table and he was selling his art prints.  My friend and I wanted the same print so Gomez hooked it up and gave us a great deal on the prints.  Ever since then I started checking out his deviant art and noticed how awesome his work is.  At almost all the cons I attend, I always see his table and stop by.  Even if it’s just a quick “Hello!”

Gomez is a comic art veteran working for companies such as DC and Wildstorm.  …

Oh pre-Marvel NOW Rick Remender, where for art thou? Once you were my favorite writer with titles like Venom and Uncanny X-Force knocking it out of the park each and every issue, you gave us fun and emotional stories, great character interaction and one of the most gut wrenching comic books I’ve ever read, so what the hell happened to you?! The first story arc of what’s supposedly the flagship book of the Marvel NOW initiative is so full of nonsensical bullshit Im surprised it wasn’t by Dan Slott!

The story begins with Wolverine holding a funeral for Charles Xavier, who …

 IMG 32431 Spring Long Beach Comic Con Recap 2013

Long Beach Comic Con (LBCC) is securing its spot as my favorite convention!

LBCC has two shows, a one day event and smaller show in spring.  The other one is their big 3 day event in fall.

The spring event was this past Saturday and the experience was great.  Sure, there’s not as many vendors as WonderCon or Comikaze but I got to talk to more artists and discuss….art.  My brother and I are currently working (hopefully revealed in 2 months) on a shirt project so we made the rounds and asked them for critiques.

First up was David Mack (Dardevil), …

I’m sure all of you guys are familiar with the picture above, “No Laughing Matter.”

The photographer behind that epic image is my friend Gaunt.  I don’t remember how long I’ve known him but I remember  chatting with him on Spawn message boards.  He actually already released the image several months before it went viral.  Everyone on the boards was really impressed with it and congratulated him on his great work.

I chatted with Gaunt to talk about his projects, artistic choices and why he loves Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Nerd Society (NS):  How did you get into photography?
