Every comic book reader knows that crossovers can be a slog to get through. For one or more issues, your favorite comic has to tie into whatever big Event is going on. With the original Civil War, these tie-ins ranged from good to completely and utterly terrible (including Civil War: Front Line which introduced us to…
I love this. I will call this the trailer for the Most Expensive Movie Ever Made. It's 6 hours long, and only sort of has a plot, but it makes a gagillion dollars anyway, because come ON!
We have seen lots of impressive images and time-lapse video of the snow wall that buried entire cities in upstate New York but this is the first drone video filmed behind it, taken in West Seneca by Jim Grimaldi. A new lake effect, powered by arctic winds from the north pole and Siberia, is now hitting the area again.
After a nigh-flawless debut, Storm #2 steps down in terms of stakes, but not in quality. (Spoilers below.)
It can take a while for new comics to find their footing, sometimes. They feel the need to set the stage for later, bigger movements. Others retread backstory to help reintroduce a character that's been gone a while. Then there's Storm #1, which just hits the ground running, and it is outstanding. (Spoilers below.)
Stargate's approach to addressing climate change involves wormholes to a parallel universe. It sounds utterly bonkers, but that far-out science fiction plot contains sneaky, real science. I know, because I put it there.
I have to admit, I'm totally not up to date when it comes to these guys and gals, but back in the day when I was...the X-Men were my jam. No points for guessing which one.
You guys...There's going to be a new Storm comic.
Concept artist Nate Hallihan has created a series of images showing us what a Medieval group of 'gifted' beings, known as The Order of X, would look like under the tutelage of Lord Charles Xavier. From a regal huntress Lady Grey to a ursine Beast and a dwarven Wolve'rüne these images have already sparked the…
Lego brought a huge amount of 2014 sets to New York Toyfair this week, from Star Wars to The Lego Movie to The Ghostbusters, but perhaps the most exciting of all is Ororo Munroe's first ever minifigure in the new X-Men vs. Sentinel set.
For me, it's pretty much always been Storm. I think her story is beautiful, I think she should be drawn exquisitely (needless to say I'm in the throes of trying to do even the humblest fanart job right now), but just everything about her, to me, demands and states beauty. Who's your most beautiful?
Toronto is going to get hit again tonight by major thunderstorms. Bonus, there will be hail! So I'm going to go ahead and assume my power will get cut off again.
I'm not very good at lists, especially the ordered kind. Smacks of commitment. Next you'll want me to be having your babies. No!But I do think I can pick top 3 (unordered) and bottom 3 (all the same order of suck), and I'd like to know what your vampire opinions are—top 3, bottom 3.
I was surfing for good refs of 'Hawk Storm for fanart I was working on, but this just stops you dead with the cool. So...flash back to things you've seen on IO9 before, and think back to the 80s (before too many of you whippersnappers were born...)
