DCR

Article by Gregg Katzman

DC Rebirth has done an amazing job re-energizing my interest in the publisher’s fictional universe. The DC Rebirth Special was a brilliant way to begin the new direction and it’s so obvious that DC has a clear focus with each of these titles: celebrate what people love about these characters and teams. Go back to the basics, and then do something fresh with it. Don’t change things just for the sake of changing them. Instead, embrace the positive and run with it! So far, each and every title has managed to capture my interest; some more than others, obviously, but the fact that all of the titles have me wanting to see more proves that the publisher really has given this new direction everything they’ve got. Okay, I could go on and on about why I think DC Rebirth is a step in the right direction (you can read a coworker’s editorial about that here), but that’s not why you’re here. You’re here because you want to see what DC has to offer on this week’s new comic book day! So grab a drink, get comfortable, and prepare to get excited for brand new DC Rebirth issues!

At the dawn of the Marvel Age, the company introduced new characters who had to deal with real world problems in a universe that was a fictional parallel of our own. In the mid 1960’s, as the Civil Rights movement was gaining steam, Marvel began introducing characters who would redefine an industry dominated by the idea that heroes had a tendency to come in only one color.

Funko

Article by Jarrett Kruse

 

Unless you have been living under a rock the last few years, you know that FUNKO’s little POP! Vinyls line is a very big deal. While vinyl figures were not always for everyone, FUNKO has changed the landscape of collectibles and has produced a POP! that gets the thumbs up from even the most hardcore action figure junkie. MIDTOWN COMICS & ACTION FIGURE JUNKIES were able to catch up with Sean Wilkinson, the very busy Creative Director at FUNKO, as he gears up for Toy Fair ’16 in two weeks at the Jacob Javitts Center in New York City.
