DEADPOOL MOVIE OFFICIALLY RATED R04/01/15 @ 7:22 pm EST
It's a time of great trials and tribulations for the Royal Family of Marvel Comics' Inhumans.
They're trying to reestablish their Capital City of Attilan as an island in New York's Hudson River; they're training and taking in the newly powered Inhumans emerging across the globe thanks to a cloud of transformative mist released by their former king, Black Bolt; and they're dealing with the threat of hostile rival Inhuman factions.
Making things even more perilous is Queen Medusa taking these threats on without Karnak, one of her most trusted advisors who took his own life in the aftermath of Marvel's recent "Infinity" event.Lacking Karnak's advice and ability to perceive weaknesses and stress points in virtually anything,
Medusa has turned to other advisors like the "Nuhuman" Lineage, and in writer Charles Soule and artist Andre Araujo's "Inhuman" #13 the former mobster showed his treacherous true colors by luring the Royal Family into a trap and shooting another of its members in the back.
While things are decidedly bleak, all hope is not lost after the final page revealed Karnak alive and observing Lineage's treachery from the afterlife, announcing his discovery of a weakness in the land of the dead.

WIZARD WORLD, CONTV PRESENT CON FILM FESTIVAL IN PHILADELPHIA, SACRAMENTO, CHICAGO, AUSTIN04/01/15 @ 7:17 pm EST
Fox has officially given their Deadpool solo film an “R” rating, ending speculation over whether the studio would actually distribute a movie worthy of the Merc with a Mouth. The news comes via JoBlo in a move that one could only expect from a Deadpool movie.
Directed by Tim Miller, Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool/Wade Wilson, Morena Baccarin as Copycat,and T.J. Miller as Weasel. The film comes from a script co-written by Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, Fabian Nicieza, Rhett Reese, and Paul Wernick.
The news follows last week’s major reveal of Ryan Reynolds in the official Deadpool costume, sporting a look that’s almost identical to the character’s comic book interpretation. And now with a "R" rating that will most likely honor the character’s dark humor and gratuitous violence, it looks like Deadpool
may be one of the most faithful comic adaptations yet.
Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016.

DYNAMITE TO PUBLISH GRUMPY CAT COMICS04/01/15 @ 3:51 pm EST
It’s an all-but-forgotten piece of Stan Lee’s back catalogue. Solarman
was written by Stan Lee and drawn by Jim Mooney
and Mike Zeck,
in 1989. Part of a pitch for an animated series starring a new Marvel character, the pilot episode flopped and the series lasted for two issues.
The comic saw wannabe Marvel artist teenager Benjamin Tucker gaining alien technological power, along with a helpful robot called Beepie. Permanent bracelets can transform sunlight into superpowers and a super identity of Solarman.
But because the character wasn’t original to Marvel Comics, and was created by producer David Oliphant
ten years previously as an educational comic drawn by Dick Giordano
, the comic can now be revived without Marvel Comics.
And with Neal Adams
. Fresh from Batman
comic books, Adams is looking for something to up his profile, and so Solarman is it.

‘SECTION 6′ WRITER TO PEN ‘G.I. JOE 3′04/01/15 @ 3:43 pm EST
From Bleeding Cool, this April Fool oddity that is absolutely true:
The latest in Dynamite’s line of licensed comic books will be one based on internet meme and very real feline, Grumpy Cat
Dynamite has a history of signing up all manner of interesting licenses from James Bond
, to today’s Looking For Group
to Battlestar Galactica
to Army Of Darkness
to The Phantom
to Doodle Jump.
How the famously mardy moggy will feature in a Dynamite book is anyone’s guess, however.
Something like this, perhaps?

FROM UNCHARTED REGIONS OF THE UNIVERSE COMES VOLTRON CAT CONDO04/01/15 @ 3:17 pm EST
In a move reminiscent of Marvel Comics' promotion of "Siege" in 2010, Dark Horse Comics has announced a program offering retailers the chance to trade in covers from unsold copies of "Star Wars" #1 for a special variant cover edition of the upcoming "Barb Wire" #1.
The press release also touts a promotion which will support the upcoming "King Tiger" miniseries by awarding a fan with a full-grown Bengal tiger.This being April Fool's Day, the latter promotion is certainly a joke.
When reached for more information about the variant program, Dark Horse reiterated the promise in its press release to provide more information in the weeks ahead.

None of my pets has shown even a passing interest in a cat condo, but maybe that’s because I’ve never bought one shaped like Voltron, Defender of the Universe.
Measuring nearly 6 feet tall, it features eight fleece-covered tunnels and interior access
to all levels. However, there’s no blazing sword, which is probably for the best. Also: If you shout “Ready to form Voltron,” your cats will ignore you because, well … they’re cats. That’s what they do.
The Voltron Cat Condo is available for $189.99 from ThinkGeek. (SOurce: CBR/Robot 6)
