They're Not Like Us #1 by Eric Stephenson and Simon Gane have taken a well-worn premise of young people with powers gathered together for their own protection and have made a mysterious and potentially sinister team of anti-heroes. It's not exactly clear what the man known as The Voice, as in the voice in their heads, has in store for new recruit Syd who tried to kill herself to stop the voices in her own head. It's easy to compare to that other band of youngsters with powers who live and train in a mansion but there's something more unnerving and dubious going on than we're lead to believe.

If you didn’t get enough of the patriotic period piece that was Captain America: The First Avenger then you needn’t worry as Agent Carter will be hitting ABC in January that follows those events. Hayley Atwell reprises her role from the film as Peggy Carter and with some help from Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) she’ll be undercover in secret spy missions.

Perhaps you don't have the freedom of Disney to spend millions of dollars on special effects, props, actors, sound, and just about everything else to make a Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. Luckily, the clever guys at Dumb Drum of Fresno, California didn't let something as trivial as money get in the way of making a kick-ass and uproarious trailer of their own using cardboard and their mouths for sound effects.
• High-tech weapons. High-stakes missions. High-octane adventure! For the men and women of S.H.I.E.L.D., it’s just another day in the field!

Frankenstein meets Pygmalion in MADAME FRANKENSTEIN by Jamie S. Rich (12 Reasons Why I Love Her, You Have Killed Me) and Megan Levens, a graphic novel set in the dying days of the Jazz Age, coming in February from Image Comics.
Coming off as a cross between Lucy and Kill Bill, the Everly trailer features Salma Hayek in a nightgown mowing down bad guys in a flurry of gunfire. The Joe Lynch directed actioner takes on a first-shooter view at times as Hayek tries to shoot her way out of an apartment to save her mother and daughter from the army of assassins sent to kill her by her former lover/mob boss. We're sold already.

The three-night event follows the stories of historical figures like John Adams, Paul Revere and Sam Adams but giving them a less stodgy depiction than you'd find in a history book.

Will Smith and Margot Robbie play con artists in Warner Bros thriller Focus. We'll get a feel for how they'll play off each other before appearing again in the star-studded comic book adaptation, Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayers. The full length trailer includes some steamy and funny scenes between them in what looks like a stylish thrilling con movie. The supporting cast is pretty stellar too. See the trailer below.
It was no secret that Marvel was high on Mike Colter (The Good Wife, Halo: Nightfall) to star as Luke Cage for their Netflix series AKA Jessica Jones as well as his own titular show. Chemistry testing with various actresses led to Krysten Ritter being cast as Jessica Jones with only Colter's deal remaining. Looks like it's a done deal with official word coming from Marvel. See below.
In the never ending debate between fanboys about which superheroes are best, Alex Luthor has taken the fight and made it into an exciting fan trailer pitting Marvel vs DC.

Wytches has been a suspenseful journey into fears many people share. It’s been more of a psychological thriller than an outright gore-fest and that’s just fine as we get to know these characters intimately and share their anxiety and terror. As a parent there’s no greater fear than have a child missing especially one who has gone through such traumatic experiences as Sailor has. Everything that surrounds her disappearance just adds to the suspense. Scott Snyder is tightening the screws on his readers psyche and Jock and Matt Hollingsworth are expediting your journey through a psychedelic spiral of colors and doom. We wouldn't expect anything less from this talented group of creators.

It's really a remarkable achievement that Goners keeps such a frenetic pace as young Zoe and Josiah Latimer evade monsters while searching for answers as to why their family would be marked for extinction. Jacob Semahn briefly pauses the action to insert some flashbacks that don't deter from the story but actually add depth and additional character development. It's quite a feat considering the number of characters that populate the book on a monthly basis. Goners #3 is still the high octane paranormal adventure that we saw in Goners #1 but we've learned a lot more about the Latimers and especially their man-servant Francis.
The war rages on as humans tear each other to shreds. Cal is done with it. He is ready for the war to end . . . but as his dark side gets stronger, whose side will he take?

DC Comics may have outdone themselves with their running themed variant covers for the month of March 2015. After some fun and gorgeous variants in 2014 like Darwin Cooke (December), LEGO (November), and Bombshells (June) to name a few DC Comics is continuing to bring some creative covers in 2015. January will feature Flash throughout the company line in celebration of his 75th Anniversary, February will bring everyone’s favorite wild card, Harley Quinn, on DC covers, and perhaps the best mash-ups of comics and famous movie posters will arrive in March.
Archie Comics 75th Anniversary Plans Include Updated Relaunch with Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, a TV Show and More
|Blockbuster team of Mark Waid and Fiona Staples to reimagine iconic characters (not final artwork)|
New York, NY (December 15) – Archie Comics, the acclaimed and bestselling comic book publisher that is home to some of the best-known pop culture creations in the world, including Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Josie & The Pussycats, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and the hit AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE and CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA horror series, announced today that the company will relaunch one of the longest-running comic series in history with a new direction spearheaded by two of the most acclaimed and best-selling creators in comics today.

What a mid-season finale! In a season that was uneven at times only to be redeemed with spectacular moments and one hell of a crossover event with The Flash the finale proved once again that comic book television doesn't get any better than Arrow.
In what could be Pixar's most adorable film so far the latest trailer for Inside Out puts us in the mind and emotions of not just Riley but her parents too for some sweet laughs as only the animation giant can produce.
Afterlife with Archie is back with a second arc to the brilliant horror series featuring the gang from Riverdale. The innocent charm of Archie, Jughead, and Betty was turned upside down by a zombie apocalypse that was brought on by Sabrina's forbidden spell. It was a shocking approach for the traditionally saccharin band of schoolmates but writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has created a truly terrifying book as seen through familiar eyes and masterfully illustrated by Francesco Francavilla.

|Trailer Mature Rated|
It's Kick-Ass meets James Bond and it looks like a blast. This red band trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service doesn't hold back as the brawls, guns and swear words fly freely.
Let’s start with Bitch Planet #1 being an exceptional piece of science fiction exploitative pulp that transcends the genre and raises a double-middle finger to the trappings of oppressive patriarchy. It is a blunt exploration of a world a lot like ours except it doesn't pretend to hide its overt sexism and misogyny. It not only embraces the inequality of women as humans but mandates by law that they are compliant. Whatever the male-run powers to be deem compliant and if a woman has the gall to become obese or unattractive then they get a one-way ticket along with real criminals to the Auxiliary Compliance Outpost aka Bitch Planet.
Image Comics/Shadowline's New York Times bestselling high fantasy series RAT QUEENS written by Kurtis J. Wiebe will welcome a new artist: Stjepan Sejic of the #1 Amazon bestseller SUNSTONE for issues 9-11.
The Flash mid-season finale gave us some answers, more questions and a better look at 'The Man in the Yellow Suit.' The packed episode even gave us the introduction of Ronnie Raymond who was nice enough to provide his own moniker (sorry, Cisco) as Firestorm. And Barry revealed his true feelings to Iris as she'd already decided to take the next step with Eddie and move-in together. Even with all the action going on the show it was still anchored by the compassion and emotions of its characters.

From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.
This fan-made trailer for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and still more to come is incredibly well edited using snippets from previous features from the cast's IMDB page basically. Regardless, it's as effective and exciting as any real trailer. Watch now!
