With the Power Rangers movie out in theaters now, the long-running tokusatsu series is getting more attention than ever, and we are happy to provide far more information than you require. We've got our ongoing episode guide to the original Mighty Morphin, but today, we're doing what we do best: Arranging every installment of the long-running franchise into a definitive (and only slightly arbitrary) list.
Horror is a notoriously difficult genre to pull off in comics. The reader controls the pace, so scares and surprises don't work the same way they do in other media, and once you've seen enough of them, shocking twist endings can feel routine. Every now and then, though, there's a creator who has the ability to pull it off, crafting unforgettable visuals and a moody setting that feels oppressive, unknown and terrifying, and Bernie Wrightson, born this day in 1948, is unquestionably one of the masters.
Over the course of a career that began in 1968, Wrightson has crafted stories full of twisted figures and haunting apparitions, and he's never stopped experimenting with how he can do it better.
The Humble Bundle deals on comics are usually a pretty good way to catch up with older stories that you may have missed out on, but every now and then, there's one that features a brand new title to love --- and right now, the IDW Creator Showcase bundle is offering up a pretty good mix of both.
Not only is it full of old favorites like Locke & Key and 30 Days of Night, it also features the debut issue of Andy Suriano and Matt Chapman's Cosmic Scoundrels --- and friends, that is a comic book that hit shelves last week that can be yours (along with a ton of other great titles) for as little as a buck.
Like it or not, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is this year's most highly anticipated superhero movie, but for those of you looking forward to it, the month we still have to wait until its release must seem like an eternity. We're all caught in a terrifying limbo, not knowing how hard those two heroes are going to v each other, or whether they'll be doing it with an array of highly marketable accessories. There's an endless stream of questions that simply won't be answered until the movie hits theaters. Or so it would seem.
While I haven't seen the movie, I have walked down the toy aisle at my local department store, and I think I've managed to piece together the entire plot of the movie based solely on the various Batman v Superman action figures and playsets. After all, they only use the most important and plot-relevant scenes from the movie for the toys, right? And I have to say, it's a lot better than I thought it would be.
If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for long enough, then it absolutely will not surprise you to learn that nothing makes me more emotional than Pokemon. They're just so... they just want to be friends and to grow stronger through the firebreathing dog equivalent of martial arts! They just want you to be your best!
And that, my friends, is what Nintendo and the Pokemon Company are highlighting with their upcoming Super Bowl commercial. It's part of a year-long celebration of the franchise's 20th Anniversary --- Pokémon Red and Green made their debut on February 27, 1996 --- but it was released online today for all of us to enjoy. Give it a watch, but prepare to start sobbing.
I'll admit that I'm a sucker for theme covers. Getting a whole month of comics that are all built around a similar aesthetic is always, always fun, and in April, IDW is launching Art Appreciation Month, with covers for all of their titles based on famous works of art.
Here at ComicsAlliance, we're pleased to exclusively reveal Cory Smith's cover for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which has taken Leonardo da Vinci's famous Mona Lisa and dramatically improved it with the addition of ninja weaponry. It's pretty fantastic, but it does raise a pressing and immediate question: How are you going to do an homage to Leonardo da Vinci and not have it feature the ninja turtle who is actually named Leonardo?
