The third Wolverine solo movie, Logan, is almost in theaters! There’s a lot of reasons to get excited – like the cinematic debut of X-23 and the R rating – and you can bet we’re pretty much counting down the days until we can watch Hugh Jackman unleash as the adamantium clawed X-Man. In the meantime, let’s prepare for the movie by reading some comics that Logan appears to be loosely inspired by, and other comics that just might one day serve as inspiration for an X-23 movie!
Daredevil has faced many cruel and scary people over the years, but few are as bloodthirsty and frightening as Marvel’s ultimate evil marksman: Bullseye. The accurate assassin is known for being a vicious villain, capable of throwing anything with lethal accuracy and boasting reflexes quick enough to block a bullet, and now he’s returning to the spotlight in his very own ongoing series. We all know what the fearsome foe does for work, but what does he do for fun? The new series – by writers Ed Brisson and Marv Wolfman, and artists Guillermo Sanna and Alec Morgan – goes on sale this Wednesday (get your copy HERE), so we’re celebrating with some fun facts about the barbaric bad guy!

2016: The year Gregg Katzman spent way too much time thinking about BvS
Movies play a huge role in my life. I remember being afraid as I watched the first ant scene in Honey, I Shrunk The Kids when I was just four years old, and I remember the excitement of watching the Ninja Turtles take on the Foot Clan when I was six. Whether a film turns out to be a personal favorite or a disappointment, it has the potential to stick with you for the rest of your life. After all, you’re dedicating around an hour and a half to two hours or so of your time to focus solely on a single story. It has your complete attention and you’re investing time in it – not only the time you spend watching the movie, but often the countless hours you’ll spend thinking about it afterwards. One of the worst things a movie can be is forgettable. Love or hate it, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is by no means forgettable. Now that we’re in 2017, I want to share just how much my thoughts have evolved on one of 2016’s biggest comic book movies.
2016 has been a great year here at Midtown Comics. Not only was it full of exciting events – like an all-star Batman Day signing and a poster signing with the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse (watch the video below) – but it was also overflowing with legitimately great comics. Marvel unleashed some giant changes to classic characters and its universe; the DC Universe focused on revitalizing its iconic characters with DC Rebirth; Image, Valiant, and many other publishers continued to generate terrific titles. Let’s see why some of the Midtown Comics staff had an unforgettable time reading comics this year.
