February 2 Pull List

One of my favorite bi-weekly titles is out today… Brightest Day!! I have to say that having Brightest Day and Generation Lost coming out every other week has been great. Both series will be soon be coming to an end but looking at all the upcoming Flashpoint releases I should be grateful. One limited series at long last finishes today, Time Masters: Vanishing Point. This series should have finished alongside of the Return of Bruce Wayne but both ran late. Speaking of late… Batman Odyssey is never on time.

The Event Returns March 7th


The Event returns next month to televsion after taking hiatus at the end of November. Good news comes that there will be no loose ends if it isn’t renewed. Unfortunately that won’t be the case for V on ABC if it isn’t renewed. Here’s the scoop thanks to EW:

NBC has set a return date for The Event, and has tapped an A-list cinematographer to direct one pivotal episode.

EW has exclusively learned The Event is coming back on Monday, March 7, with a two-hour presentation, followed by Harry’s Law. After that, there’s nine more Event episodes to finish out the show’s first season.

Also, Janusz Kaminski — the Oscar-winning cinematographer behind a score of Steven Spielberg classics as Saving Private Ryan, Schindler’s List, and War of the Worlds — has been tapped to direct episode 15.

Could No. 15 be when fans finally learn what “The Event” is?

Producers said last year that the title reference will be revealed in the latter half of the first season. Also, they’ve maintained that the season finale will conclude the current storylines in a satisfying manner (a different strategy than, say, ABC’s V, which is going for a cliffhanger).

NBC’s superhero drama The Cape has had it’s episode order cut from 13 down to 10. Due to it’s poor ratings, the future doesn’t look bright for The Cape. It isn’t canceled yet but I wouldn’t hold my breath on it sticking around.

SLAM-A-RAMA Issue 3 Available This Wednesday


Do you like reading comics? Do you like old school wrestling? If you answered yes to either or both of these questions then you have to check out SLAM-A-RAMA by Halifax’s own Dave Howlett. Available for purchase at Strange Adventures this coming Wednesday!

Here’s a write-up from the comic’s website to give you a little idea of what the comic is all about:

An online graphic novel set during the gaudy glory days of 1980s professional wrestling, SLAM-A-RAMA chronicles the events of the greatest night in sports entertainment history. Over the course of one fateful evening, a diverse cast of characters–some at the top of their game, others on the downward slope of their careers–will be tested by bone-crushing battles within the ring, as well as the harrowing personal dramas that await them backstage.

Avenged Sevenfold Announce Drummer

After the departure of Mike Portnoy before Christmas there were many questions about who would be on drums for their upcoming 2011 dates. Today we find out direct from the band via their website.

We recently asked several friends who knew Jimmy and his style, and also knew our music and each of our personalities to suggest drummers to tour with us starting this year. Our long time studio drum tech, Mike Fasano, recommended Arin Ilejay. We’ve rehearsed with Arin and have been impressed with his technical skills, attitude and work ethic. We’re very excited to tour with Arin and hope all of you will give him the warm welcome to the family we have.

Thanks for your never ending support. It means the world to us.

See you on the Nightmare After Christmas

X-Men: First Class – First Picture

UPDATE JAN. 19: I’ve updated the leaked photo of the cast with a higher quality one. Director Matthew Vaughn says that it was not a pre-approved image. Obviously there was some confusion between Vaughn and Fox over this one as it was released by Fox.

MSN posted an image earlier today from the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie. The post has since been removed. Thankfully for us though… once it’s online it never goes away. I don’t know about you but I’m not all that excited about it yet. I’m hoping when we finally see a trailer for it that it will put my doubts about the film to rest.

Left to right, we see: Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havoc, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and James McAvoy as Charles Xavier.
