Some rumors were milling about the last couple days about a collector’s edition for the upcoming “Batman: Arkham City.” Well, it turns out the $99 price-point was accurate, and thanks to an announcement from Warner Bros. this morning, we get our first look at the premium package’s content. It doesn’t include a plastic Batarang, but there’s plenty of great stuff inside.

 

If you’re willing to pay the premium cost, the “Batman: Arkham City” collector’s edition is packed full of stuff that should please both fans of the videogame franchise and the comics.

First, there’s the collectible Batman statue, designed by Japanese toy company Kotobukiya. I wish the image released by Warner Bros. today had a more detailed close-up of the sculpture, but given Kotobukiya’s usually high-quality craftsmanship, I’m willing to bet this will look great next to all your other gaming paraphernalia.

The collector’s edition also comes with an art book, a copy of the DC animated-film “Batman: Gotham Knight,” early access to the Iceberg Lounge Challenge Map, a “Dark Knight Returns” skin, and four collectible cards. Also included is an “Arkham City” album from “hit artists.” There’s no indication who these “hit artists” are, but it doesn’t appear that this is a soundtrack, either. Weird.

The press release this morning also noted that the collector’s edition will be available in “limited quantities,” so if this is something you’re interested in, now may be a good time to visit your favorite retailer. “Batman: Arkham City” releases to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 18.

From Comingsoon

New Line Cinema and MGM have released the first photo of Jed Brophy as Nori, Adam Brown as Ori and Mark Hadlow as Dori in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it’s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide any anyone who means harm to one of these brothers.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on December 14, 2012.

RED 5 COMICS “CUBICLES” BRINGS INSANE TO THE MUNDANE PART “OFFICE”, PART “FLASH GORDON”.

AVAILABLE NOW ON COMIXOLOGY.

July 6, 2011. Calgary, AB — With a mandate to bring off-beat, fresh-talent, eclectic stories of pure fun to the digital comic storefront, Red 5 Comics’ “Digital First” line could find no more perfect story than “Cubicles: The Graphic Novel” by writer / illustrator Walter Ostlie.

“Cubicles” stars Wally and Ost — two ordinary guys with ordinary desk jobs, complete with monotony, tension relief, horrible bosses and office crushes. But the pair’s tedium is about to be shattered by galactic pirates, savage aliens, and space squid all wanting to destroy their company. Can Wally and Ost save the day? Get the girl? Maybe even get a raise?

“Cubicles is a joy ride,” explains Ostlie. “Every plot point was devised by asking, ‘What would be the most fun or crazy thing to do?’ It was great just to throw Wally and Ost into a horrible situation and try to devise how two normal guys, with no special powers, would be able to get out of it.”

Early reviewers unanimously had a great time with “Cubicles”. Comics Should be Good says Ostlie has “a good sense of humor and his comic delivery is strong” with an “impressive art style”. Comic Buzz gives the book a 9/10, and was “especially fond of the tone of the characters. As sardonic, slightly sarcastic dialogue goes the book pretty much nails it.” DC author Caanan Grall “laughed out loud quite a bit”.

“Cubicles” is told in seven chapters, but the digital graphic novel collects the entire 84-page story for just $3.99 — the price of some single comic issues. If that doesn’t convince you, the first chapter is available for free for a limited time.

“Cubicles” debuts today and is available now on the web, iOS and Android devices through comiXology (comic.comixology.com) digital platform. It will available this summer through digital partners iVerse, Graphicly and Panelfly as well.

In this new series, the workings of Fate are being tampered with across the Multiverse, upsetting the Cosmic Balance. Elric of Melniboné must preserve the Balance and save the entire Multiverse from ruin. But no sooner has his journey begun than he is waylaid by dark forces and lost on the Moonbeam Roads. Elric finds himself stranded on a world where Chaos holds sway and where change is the only constant. Heroes are forced into action far and wide, but will they fight on the side of Law or Chaos?
