Marvel universe has expanded beyond our wildest imagination even before Marvel Cinematic Universe started seeing success as blockbuster live action movies. But this thing here is way beyond my wildest imagination: a Hulk cross Wolverine. Yes. You freaking read that right. Hulkverine is a thing! Holy mother of…. What kind of abomination is this? Whatever it is, you must asking “what the hell is happening here?” Did Wolverine got hit by gamma rays too, like Bruce Banner? Or did Hulk underwent the excruciating Weapon X? Well, actually, it was neither. Continue reading There’s Hulkverine Now And No, Hulk And Wolvie Did Not Have A Child
Now that Masamune Shirow’s iconic Ghost In The Shell has made it to Hollywood, we suspect there’s going to be a host of anime/manga-turned-live action movie coming our way. Already, we have heard Akira is being given a serious thought after years of ons and offs (GITS is likely the catalyst for the ‘sudden’ progress we heard now), and apparently, Jordan Peele is in talks to direct this other cult Japanese sci-fi manga. It won’t happen anytime soon though; it will take a while, but this also allow time for sci-fi nuts and fans alike to do some serious recaps and what better way than to flip through the entire series, presented in six beautiful hardcover volumes, contained in the Akira 35th Anniversary Box Set (Kodansha Comics, ISBN-13 978-1632364616)?

Rebellion’s Judge Dredd is not a particularly huge pop culture thing even though the comic/magazine dates back to as far as 1970s. It does have its followings, just not as huge as those characters dished out by Marvel and DC, probably because of its setting in dystopian future city known as 2000 AD. Seriously, not everyone’s into grim future. Honestly, I am not fan, at least, not until it make it to the big screen, particularly the 2012 Dredd. That was a pretty brilliant piece executed by director Pete Travis. Anyways, if you are fan, then you might be interested in the Limited Edition Judge Dredd Letterpress Set by New York Time best-selling British artist Jock.
