FIRST 'CLOAK & DAGGER' SEASON 2 STILLS RELEASED02/16/19 @ 12:34 pm EST
Writer/artist Edward Laroche (Almighty
, Bad Summer
) will launch an all-new military science fiction series, THE WARNING, this November from Image Comics.
An enormous machine is slowly materializing in a major metropolitan city on the West Coast. No one knows who sent it, or why—except, perhaps, for the malevolent beings gliding silently through the inky vastness of space toward Earth.
In response, a joint multinational combat brigade called Gladiator Two-Six is deployed. Outfitted with next-generation military science and weapons, they’re tasked with stopping any extraterrestrial threat that emerges.
“I'm psyched to be a part of the most interesting and influential creative space for American independent comics,” said Laroche. “I just want to add a chorus, or maybe an opera, to the art form that has meant everything to me. THE WARNING is the first act of that opera.”
THE WARNING #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, November 28th.

MARVEL'S 'LOKI' SERIES LANDS 'RICK AND MORTY' WRITER02/16/19 @ 8:21 am EST
BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #3
, the highly anticipated next chapter of the all new BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
monthly comic book series, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.
Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands
) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Klaus
, Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers
), along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Firefly
, Marvel’s The Avengers
, and more), continue to reimagine the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #3
This is Buffy Summers, who wants what every teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, a cute crush, and to escape a destiny as the lone Slayer, hunting vampires and fighting Evil. But things get complicated when several magical power players enter the field, each with their own hidden and perhaps nefarious agenda, leaving Buffy to dive deeper into the dark, supernatural underbelly of Sunnydale in search of answers. BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #3
features a main cover by acclaimed Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor, along with variant covers by artists Kevin Wada (She-Hulk
), Matt Smith (Jim Henson’s Storyteller, Lake of Fire

“Buffy packs a mean right hook and flying kick but not every threat goes down when you punch it in the face; it’s going to take the fledgling Scooby Gang working together to figure out just what’s going on and who’s pulling the strings.” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Fans will get to see if Team Slayer is ready to face a Big Bad in this issue, or if leveling up and coming to the attention of Team Vamp will end in dire consequences.”BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #3

THR'TOY STORY 4' FIRST CLIP RELEASED 02/15/19 @ 3:53 pm EST
is reporting that Loki
, one of the first series that Marvel Studios will be making for Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, has landed Michael Waldron as its point person. Waldron will write the pilot, act as show creator and exec produce the series.
Tom Hiddleston is expected to star in the series, reprising the fan-favorite character he first played in 2011’s Thor
The character apparently met his demise in last year’s Avengers: Infinity War
even before the census-altering dematerialization of half the universe, but Marvel may have found a run around that little impediment.
Sources told THR that the show will follow Loki as the trickster and shape-shifter pops up throughout human history as an unlikely influencer on historical events.
Marvel had no comment.
