– In case you were worried, Alex Kurtzman has promised that his “Venom” film will be a darker take on the Spider-Man film world, which naturally fits the character and his sort of perversion of the Spider-Man idea. Plus, darkness is so hot right now.
– It’s finally coming: James McAvoy will apparently be going bald as Professor X in the upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse”, or at least he probably will.
– As revealed in yesterday’s “Avengers Undercover” #10, artist Tigh Walker and colorist Jean-Francois Beaulieu will be teaming up for a new teen hero book featuring that hero “grappling with darkness.” Whatever exactly that entails.
– This Alex Ross variant cover to Kurt Busiek and Ben Dewey’s “Tooth & Claw” #2 is a god damn masterpiece.
– Karl Kerschl’s Hello Kitty comic is utterly spectacular.
