SDCC 2016: Warner Bros Destroys Comic-Con with Wonder Woman, Justice League, LEGO Batman, Fantastic Beasts & More

HOLY DAMN!! Warner Bros got the message after the massive debbie downer that was Batman V Superman underwhelmed long time comic book fans across the globe and GREW A SENSE OF HUMOR!! THERE ARE FRAKKIN JOKES IN THE JUSTICE LEAGUE TRAILER!!! IT'S PRETTY DAMN CHARMING!!!! I can't be happier, if you couldn't tell. While Marvel is a great love of mine, my entire childhood belonged to Batman, Superman and the Justice League. When film makers ignore that past...those character notes...and just make what they feel like making, it makes all the comic fans like me very depressed. We drink heavily, pick fights with Anime kids (damn u Homestuck) and yell at PokemonGo players to get off our lawn...well..any lawn. The newest footage shown at San Diego Comic-Con is guaranteed to turn those curmudgeony frowns upside down.

Amazon today announced the lineup for its 2016 comedy pilot season which will debut August 19 in the US, UK, Germany, Austria, and Japan. Amazon customers can expect more variety than ever in an Amazon pilot season, including shows I Love Dick, based on the renowned feminist novel about a couple’s marital struggles in the artistic and academic community of Marfa, Texas; Jean-Claude Van Johnson, where martial arts film star Jean-Claude Van Damme operates under the alias of “Jean-Claude Van Johnson” to serve as the most dangerous undercover private contractor in the world; and The Tick, an offbeat and dark superhero tale based on the acclaimed comic.

SDCC 2016: Invader Zim's Jhonen Vasquez on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Children of the future, I would like to introduce you to our pal, Dark Lord and Master, Jhonen Vasquez. Jhonen created a comic book called Johnny the Homicidal Maniac which taught us all how to get in touch with our true feelings of blind, unadulterated hatred for mankind and to channel that positive energy toward craft projects which would one day open a door to a black universe where the old ones sleep. It's good to have goals. Jhonen also made a comic called Squee which personified all of our rightful fears in the tiny, quivering body of a small boy tormented nightly by all the evil this reality has to offer. It's a classic. Later, Jhonen would move onto a little indie cartoon series called Invader Zim which was about a green alien boy that just wanted to be loved. Blind, unwavering, relentless love that comes with no questioning or resistance. It's the most American thing he's done to date....UNTIL NOW!! Watch Jhonen Vasquez out-crazy Teen Titans Go in a special San Diego Comic Con exclusive cartoon short...

Nicole Marrokal is storming the gates of San Diego Comic-Con right now, but earlier, she very politely stormed the entryway of the DC Collectibles Collector Preview where she got to oogle many a Bombshells Action Figure, Statue and Bust, survived getting stabbed by a Wonder Woman statue and gasped at the snazzitude that always comes with Team DC. Seriously...look at these dudes...

Attack on Titan Season 2 Coming in 2017

FINALLY!! Fans of giant babbling naked people chewing on tiny innocent Asians rejoice at the news Attack on Titan season 2 finally seems to have a round-about date of arrival in 2017. No overly dramatic, super cheesy live action film could satiate fans who were originally told they'd see more Titan animated action in 2016 and so..we waited...and drew pictures...and bought toys...and made costumes...and went on theme dates where we stayed in character the whole time only breaking to do mundane things like pay checks and go to the bathroom. No one goes to the bathroom in the Attack on Titan world.
