This Is a Joke, Right?

This Is a Joke, Right?

There are times, when words are not enough. I am an eternal proponent of the written word, and I am at a loss when I find myself in a position where this happens. I admit this only under times of extreme duress – I am speechless. I am at a loss for words.

This is one of those times. I don’t need to say anything about the above. I don’t need to critique it. Your brain is doing it for you. You have taste. You understand what is acceptable, and what is not.

The question, is, naturally, how and why on earth did this design concept make it past the drawing board, let alone through the approval process? If you have an answer, and if that answer is cogent, and well reasoned, please let us know. Please.

Review: Batman vs Robin – Did anyone read the Books?

Review: Batman vs Robin – Did anyone read the Books?

As one of DC’s most popular characters, Batman has no shortage of excellent story arcs. In recent years though, none have kept me on the edge of my seat quite like Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run on Batman featuring the Court of Owls. It seemed like the glimmering diamond in the New 52, and when Batman vs Robin was first announced, it seemed like my dreams had true; Court of Owls and the Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason run of Batman & Robin would finally be melded into one animated feature. It’s DC Animation; their track record is solid. What could possibly go wrong?

Today, at Celebration, a teaser for the first of the anthology films was released along with plot, production, and cast details!

What You May Have Missed in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer

You’ve seen the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you’re anything like the Pixelated Geek staff, you’ve watched it twenty-plus times, paused it, squinted at the screen, and your mind is awash with a combination of wild glee and rampant speculation. There’s nothing better about being a geek than geeking out, and the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is the best excuse to do so in a long, long time.

WonderCon 2015 Dead Rising: Watchtower Roundtable with Tim Carter and Tomas Harlan

WonderCon 2015 has come and gone but that doesn’t mean the Comic Issues crew had all the fun! Dead Rising: Watchtower is a movie based on the wildly entertaining video game zombie survival franchise Dead Rising. The movie follows “ace” reporter Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe) as he tries to survive a zombie outbreak in a quarantine zone. Along the way he meets Crystal (Meghan Ory), a woman infected by the zombie virus who maintains her humanity through the use of a special medication. They are also joined by Maggie (Virginia Madsen), a mother who is on the brink of insanity. The trio band together and try to fight their way out of the dangerzone as Chase’s camerawoman, Jordan (Keegan Connor Tracy) tries to find a way to rescue them with the help of General Lyons (Dennis Haysbert). The movie contains twists and turns and is generally a delight to watch!

WonderCon 2015 – Batman v Robin Interviews

This week DC Entertainment released the latest in their line of straight-to-home-video animated movies mostly based on storylines from the comics. Not letting the dust settle on their last release, January’s Throne of Atlanis, they bring us Batman v Robin, starring returning voice actors Jason O’Mara, Stuart Allan, and Sean Maher along with Jeremy Sisto as the villain, Talon. While at WonderCon this year our favorite Villainous Correspondents Sara Winchester and Skratch Okami spoke with some of the cast and crew about coming back to Gotham City with one of Batman’s greatest stories in recent time and what it was like putting on the tights again… metaphorically that is… maybe.

5 Things You Need to Know from Star Wars Celebration 2015

Star Wars Celebration 2015 is in full swing, and while there’s a ton of fun and fascinating content, today’s conference (April 16th 2015) was definitely a fan highlight. Between new faces and old friends, insightful glances into the production philosophy, hints at big reveals to come, and a brand new trailer, today’s conference pulled the heart-strings of every dedicated Star Wars fan, and ignited an excitement that has lain dormant since that sinking feeling that accompanied the Prequel films.
