Now, this is exciting!

Today, BOOM! Studios has announced that, through their “KaBOOM” imprint, they’ll be bringing Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us) and James Brouwer’s all-ages underwater adventure to stores.

THE DEEP is the basis of the hit animated series on Netflix. It was first published in Australia by Gestalt as two original graphic novels but KaBOOM! will be publishing it as a six-issue limited series and making it available in the U.S. and everywhere else. A collected edition will come out Fall 2017.

BOOM! Studios usually announces several exciting new projects leading up to shows like NYCC so this is sure to be just the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned as we learn more!

With the October 11 launch date just a few short weeks away (or on October 7 with early access for Gears of War 4: Ultimate Edition owners), Gears of War 4 encourages players to ‘Never Fight Alone’ by teaming up with a friend through cross-platform co-op gameplay on Xbox One and Windows 10 platforms. As Gears of War 4 is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, you’ll be able to play across both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, as all game progress, Gamerscore, and Achievements are saved on and accessible through Xbox Live.

Greg Berlanti, known for being the busiest television creator for his acclaimed series “Arrow”, “Legends of Tomorrow”, “Supergirl”, and “The Flash”, is adding another superhero show to his hectic schedule. Berlanti will partner with Sarah Schechter to bring “Black Lightning” to the small screen at Fox, the home of “Gotham” and “Lucifer”, as well as a potential X-Men series.

The series will revolve around Jefferson Pierce, aka Black Lightning, a hero who can control lightning. Pierce will be out of the superhero game when the series begins, but will be pulled back in when his daughter decides to seek justice for herself. Salim and Mara Brock Akil are adapting the pilot.

I will be taking bets as to how long it takes for “Black Lightning” to be canceled and picked up at the CW.

Sony Introduces the PS4 Pro

With the holidays right around the corner, Sony is the first entrant into this season’s tech wars with the introduction of the newer, slimmer PS4 and the PS4 Pro.

The new standard PS4 is starting to ship to retailers now and will be available by September 15 for a suggested retail price of $299.99 USD, representing great value for gamers who have wanted to join the PS4 community, but the price tag kept them from doing so. Our engineering and design teams collaborated to consolidate PS4’s high-performance technology into a smaller, more energy efficient form factor. Despite the sleek design, the new model packs all of the same powerful components of it’s previous counterpart.

PS4 Pro, which launches November 10, 2016, for a suggested retail price of $399.99 USD, enhances PS4 games by supporting the latest in imaging technology through 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR), as well as smoother frame rates. Games that already look extraordinary on PS4 will look richer and more detailed, thanks to the more powerful GPU and faster CPU at the heart of PS4 Pro. With more pixels, 4K’s higher resolution delivers graphics that are sharper and have greater detail than ever imagined. HDR enables visuals to look much closer to the way your eyes see the real world.

Game developers are currently updating games to be compatible with the PS4 Pro as well as creating and building new games for the new platform. At launch, you’ll be able to download patches for games – such as Uncharted 4 – which are enhanced when playing on the new console. Future releases that will have PS4 Pro enhancements built-in include Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Mass Effect: Andromeda and Days Gone. For you streaming fans, Netflix will launch a new app at the launch of PS4 Pro that supports 4K, and YouTube is also developing a new 4K-compatible app for PS4 Pro.

Joe Manganiello of “True Blood” and “Magic Mike” fame has been confirmed to be Batman’s current nemesis in Ben Affleck’s upcoming Dark Knight Movie.

Affleck recently shared a video online of Manganiello in his Deathstroke costume, but didn’t let on who was underneath the mask or what role the character would play in upcoming films.

DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns confirmed the casting in his first interview discussing his new role overseeing Warner Bros.’ movies based on DC Comics characters, and is writing the script with Affleck , who will also be directing.

There is currently no official release date for the movie, but the word is sometime in 2018.

Glitterbomb_01-1

Title: Glitterbomb #1
Publisher: Image Comics
Written by: Jim Zub
Artwork by: Djibril Morrissette-Phan (Line Art) & K. Michael Russell (Colors)
Rating: 3 out of 5

As an actress, there is one thing that you fear among all others: Getting old. For Farrah, her fear is now a reality. As younger, prettier girls enter the scene for casting calls, she struggles for acting gigs. With a kid to take care of and a worthless agent, she needs to get a gig and STAT. When not chosen for a call back, depressed and desperate she heads to the beach with one thing in mind… but something lurking in the water has other plans for her.

A glimpse into what it’s like to be an actress in an industry that’s all about looks and less about talent, Glitterbomb takes us into the life of Farrah Durante, and actress who is desperate for another spot in the limelight. This issue takes us into that abyss of young girls, old men and evil darker than your average casting agent. The art team of Morrissette-Phan and Russell pair well with the story line of Zub, and the action within the first 2 pages will grab you and keep you turning the page and waiting for the next issue.

You can find this, and other Image Comics, at your local or digital comic retailer.
