From the unhinged, yet lucid mind of Justin lee Fox and the cunning, contemporary art style of Jacob Crippen comes the action adventure Graphic Novel, “JET GIRL”!

This February, brace yourself for a new espionage/sci-fi extravaganza. JUSTIN FOX’S JET GIRL, holds true to the 30’s silver screen serial with a modern feel and pop culture attitude. Dive head first into this full colored 80-page experience.

The project of JUSTIN FOX’S JET GIRL was originally written as 3 one-shots that correlated with one another but were separate adventures in themselves. The first chapter follows Audey/Jet Girl, as she is sent to destroy the Lunar Socialist’s moon base. There, she confronts Junior Hitler, who is a failed clone of the Tyrant Dictator, and his nursemaid Ilsa, who was suppose to be the clone’s queen, but since the experiment failed she is now his caretaker. In this first story we are introduced to Jet Girl herself and the mysterious English covert agent Magistrate Mod, along with her most feared enemies. Who may or may not have ulterior motives behind controlling the Lunar Nazi movement. Through, skill, luck and puberty Jet Girl saves the moon and the day while learning that Mod might know more than he lets on. The 2nd chapter takes us 2 months from the Moon incident where Isla and J.H. have hired the great great grandsons of the Red Barron; two bi wing pilots obsessed with David Bowie and Jet Girl. It’s low-tech versus high-tech in this high flying adventure! All the while Audey/Jet Girl is being watched by a mysterious woman whose intentions are not yet clear, building up to the shocking answer that follows in chapter 3. The 3rd and final chapter of the 80-page Graphic Novel is the confrontation between Audey and the original Jet Girl Cassandra Roe. While earlier stories are very light-hearted this issue shows how Jet Girl can be very diverse in story and atmosphere. In this final conflict we learn the past of the “Jet Girl” program and the dark secrets that were hidden from our hero. A choice must be made by Audey/ Jet Girl while her views about the program and country are shattered. Only reading will you know what decision she makes for her future and involvement in the Jet Girl program.

Here’s the synopsis of the film:

The new Marvel movie Iron Man 3 sees the brash and brilliant industrialist Tony Stark / Iron Man fight an enemy without limits. When Stark sees his own world destroyed by the hand of his enemy, will undertake a harrowing quest to find those responsible. It will be a company that will test his courage at all times. With their backs to the wall, Stark will have to survive without the devices created by him, trusting only his wits and instinct to protect the people he loves. While it found all the forces to react, Stark finds the answer to the question that has always secretly persecuted is the man who makes the armor or is the armor that makes the man?

For the last three years Michael Drace Fountain, Marcel Losada, Joe Pezzula and James Ninness have been developing a comic horror anthology. The adventure began when the three of them wrote the book in a cabin in the woods (yes, seriously) in November of 2009. Through the years it has gone through various publishers, incarnations and production snaffus.
Well, 2013 is the year their book, in Sanity, AZ comes to fruition – with a bit of help from you. Featuring four writers, sixteen interior artists, a top-tier cover artist and a dreamy colorist/designer, we are finally ready to get this thing done.
 
in Sanity, AZ will be Kickstarted – not the first issue, not the first two issues, not even just the digital issues – the whole thing. When they raise the money for this project they will have everything they need to release three digital comic book issues (the smallest of which clocks in at fifty-two pages) and a trade paperback. Single issues will be sold for $1.49 – yup, that’s it – and release in July, August and November of this year. The trade paperback will, hopefully, be out in time for Christmas, 2013.
So, what is in Sanity, AZ about?

Sega is back in the game console business! Well, sorta. Okay, not really. But this is pretty cool anyway. The Tokyo-based gaming company is licensing out its iconic consoles to be branded on laptop computers.

The result is several Sega-themed notebooks: there’s the basic Sega motif, the Genesis Model, the Saturn version, and the Dreamcast one. Each of these see four different spec levels: the Light Model, which is ¥99,750 US$1,069; the Standard Model, which costs ¥131,250 $1,406; the High Spec Model, which costs ¥162,750 $1,744; and the pricey Premium Model, which lists at ¥194,250 $2,081.

Here are the PC specs.

Sega has been interested in doing laptop versions since the year before last, thinking they would be something diehards would totally want. And now, if you live in Japan or can import, you could totally get one.The Dreamcast, the Saturn, and the Genesis Have Returned! (...as Laptop Computers...)

The laptops have custom wallpapers, sounds, and screen icons. This better be the boot up music.

The continuation of Warner Bros.’ Batman Arkham series seems as sure as everyone’s favorite costumed vigilante brooding atop a gargoyle statue in a pose of solitude. In a call to investors (via VG247), the publisher rather offhandedly states that an additional Arkham will swoop in sometime this year.

Batman: Arkham City

“And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise,” Warner Bros. CFO John Martin says. “So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012.”

Details for Arkham 3 are unknown, but VG247′s “own sources” claims developer Rocksteady isn’t involved. Whispers of a prequel plot taking place during the 1950s-1970s Silver Age era of Batman’s saga were passed around since last summer and hinted of showing Batman’s first encounter with The Joker—who, devoid of comic-book writer Frank Miller’s psychological themes, might revert to his more campy origins. On a more nerdy note (pushes up glasses), the Silver Age marks the first appearance of Arkham City mastermind Ra’s al Ghul, so that could potentially factor into the “first meetings” angle.

The Last of Us has been delayed, SCEE has confirmed.

The game will now release worldwide on June 14, 2013, just over five weeks later than originally planned.

In a statement provided to VideoGamer.com, Naughty Dog said it prides itself on “setting a very high quality bar for every aspect of our games – gameplay, story, art, design, technology and more.

“We want to make sure The Last of Us raises that bar even further – for ourselves, and most importantly, our fans.

“Naughty Dog says that the delay will allow it to deliver a game that lives up to the team’s “internal high standards”.The Last of Us screenshot

“As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realise just how massive Joel and Ellie’s journey is,” Naughty Dog continued. “But instead of cutting corners or compromising our vision, we came to the tough decision that the game deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog’s internal high standards.”

The delay means that The Last of Us now won’t ship until the week of E3 – the same week many expect to see Sony’s PlayStation 4 line-up.

February 11th, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA – BOOM! Studios is proud to announce the release of PLANET OF THE APES SPECIAL #1, a standalone tale written by sci-fi novelist Daryl Gregory (PLANET OF THE APES, DRACULA: THE COMPANY OF MONSTERS) and illustrated by Diego Barreto (IRREDEEMABLE), with 32 pages of story and art. The PLANET OF THE APES SPECIAL #1, the first of three over-sized issues that will conclude Gregory’s Planet of the Apes opus, is available in comic shops this Wednesday, February 13th.
It’s the return of what Jason Aaron called: “The best PLANET OF THE APES comic ever. And one of my favorite comics of the year, period.” When the Lawgiver was assassinated by a human, Ape City fell into a vicious civil war. Ten years have passed since the horrific violence and a fragile peace is emerging. Voice Alaya has been deposed and awaits sentencing in Ape City’s prison. Meanwhile, Sully has begun to rally forces, both human and ape. Little do they know they’re both on a collision course towards an even greater danger…

“I’ve got mixed emotions: on one hand we’re bringing to a close a storyline we’ve been working on for over two years. On the other, hand, we’re bringing to a close a storyline we’ve been working on for over two years! It’s 90 pages of war, death, politics, and redemption that I think follows in the best POTA tradition. I’m grateful to the fans who’ve followed us this far. It’s been a blast for me,” said Gregory.

PLANET OF THE APES SPECIAL #1 ships in January with a main cover by Marek Oleksicki (28 DAYS LATER) and a retailer incentive cover by Paul Azaceta (UNTHINKABLE, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN). This full color, 32 page special retails for $4.99 and is available for reorder under Diamond code DEC120909. To locate a comic shop near you, go to comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-COMIC-BOOK.

Star Wars fans, admit it: you like scoundrels. And you’re about to get more of them in your life.Han-Solo-Boba-Fett

Yesterday, The Walt Disney Co. unveiled plans to make a number of spin-off movies set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away — in addition to the post-Return of the Jedi trilogy that had already been announced.

Entertainment Weekly has learned details on two of the spin-off projects: A young Han Solo saga, focusing on the wisecracking smuggler’s origin story, and a bounty hunter adventure with Boba Fett at the center of a rogue’s gallery of galactic scum.

Several sources close to the projects confirmed this was the direction the development was taking, although each cautioned it’s still very early in the process and, well, the deal could always be altered futher. Lucasfilm and Disney declined to comment on the information.
