As we get ready to pile into movie theaters for the new Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse film, we return to an old gem in the annals of live-action special effects TV, with the strange anomaly that was 1978's Spider-Man. A rare Japanese-produced adaptation from an original Marvel Comics creation, this Spidey bears some similarities to the more familiar wall-crawler from New York, but in other ways... maybe not so much. Still, the hero, whose televised adventures lasted 41 episodes, has made some strides in recent pop culture, having appearances in comic book crossovers where he encounters other webslingers in the Spider-Man multiverse, along with his giant mech Leopardon. Because nothing says "spider power" like a kaiju-sized robot themed after a cat. Here's the Honest Trailer for...

The Immortal Red Fox is back for more action in Volume 2 of their web series and comic book adventures. The Immortal Red Fox isn’t your typical indie Tokusatsu web series. Based on Shonen Style Manga, our story follows a man, who lacks tact and the ability to survive on his own. An American transplant to Japan, who can barely stand on his own two feet, unknowingly unlocks a gateway to the past, breaking a seal that was put in place by the greatest warrior eons ago. Now, our new hero must continue fighting a war and take on a legacy that has been 500 years in the making. Before he can return to an ordinary life again, he will battle monsters, foot soldiers and generals like you’ve never encountered. Instead of treating his powers like a curse, he must embrace them as a gift! He ...

20th Century Fox and Robert Rodriguez bring the classic anime and manga title to life in Alita: Battle Angel. The sci-fi tale about an android with killer moves adapts Kishiro Yukito's original Battle Angel Alita, with the use of motion capture CG enhancement for a unique aesthetic in this dystopian actioner. James Cameron (The Terminator, Avatar) was originally set to helm this project as his personal robotic baby, but when other properties called him away, Rodriguez (Planet Terror, Sin City) stepped up to the plate. From a script by Laeta Kalogridis of Shutter Island, the film stars Rosa Salazar (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Insurgent), Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds, Spectre), Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Luke Cage), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, A Nightmare on Elm Street...

As Power Rangers fans bid farewell to the superhero franchise's long-standing toy makers at Bandai, they're offering one more special item before closing up shop and passing the torch to new owner Hasbro. As a special convention exclusive, Bandai America will make available the Lord Drakkon figure, as well as his iconic throne, from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book series from BOOM! Studios. Hailing from a dark alternate universe in which Green Ranger Tommy Oliver never joined the show's familiar heroes in their quest to save Earth from evil, Drakkon quickly became one of the book's most prominent villains, now featured in the Shattered Grid mini-series event. The Lord Drakkon figure and the Lord Drakkon throne are sold separately, but are available for order by attendin...

I got a little surprise in the mailbox today. In a brown shipping envelope was a review copy of Go Go Power Rangers vol.1! The first trade paperback from BOOM! Studios collecting the first four issues of their hit spin-off comic book. Already owning every issue of Go Go Power Rangers, I opened the book to check out what extra goodies are contained within and found myself rereading the comics. Still just as good as the first time I read the adventures of our favorite "Teens with Attitude," the team of Ryan Parrott and Dan Mora tell the story of what the days were like when Jason, Kimberly, Zack, Trini, and Billy first got their powers. Sprinkled throughout the TPB are the variant retro movie covers as well as a variant covers gallery at the end. Not a lot of extras but what I come t...

The Power Rangers franchise surely isn't messing around this year, is it? I can't walk three steps without tripping over some new announcement concerning the spandex-clad heroes that have filled my imagination since the early 1990s with adventure and charm. No sooner than I've let it sink in that Saban Brands has broken up with its longtime collaborator in the toy world, Bandai America, over their joint custodianship of Power Rangers, my brain is further scrambled by the news that toy company Hasbro is about to pick up the slack. Shortly after, we hear that not only will they be continuing to provide toys and merchandise for this enduring media franchise, but they'll just go ahead and take that media part too. Goodness me, what is a fan to make of all these rapid changes?! If I were t...

Serious business is afoot in recent episodes of Power Rangers HyperForce. Twitch's live roleplaying series based on the Power Rangers television franchise has kicked into a new gear with its incursion into the Shattered Grid comic event, weaving in and out of three different entertainment platforms in a move that truly no one in their right mind could have expected their creators to coordinate. Original Green Ranger Jason David Frank returns for one more go-around with the HyperForce crew, and the wicked ways of Lord Drakkon - the evil alternate universe Tommy Oliver - are giving this new team of do-gooders a workout. https://youtu.be/vPWzqgw6DHw Power Rangers HyperForce streams live every Tuesday at 6PM PT from HyperRPG.   You might also like: SUPER HERO SYNOPSES | Childho...

What a time to be a Power Rangers fan. A certain number of years ago, the thought of more seasons of the show would have seemed farfetched, let alone the release of a feature-length film, a live streaming show, an addictive mobile game, and a successful line of ongoing comics to add on top of that. There's a lot to be thankful for in 2018, and the hits, it seems, just keep on coming. Now, as we rev up for the launch of the Power Rangers: Shattered Grid comic event, the main writer of the BOOM! Studios publication brings to us this live-action teaser short, starring none other than original Green Ranger Jason David Frank from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (and, like, fifty other seasons) as the villainous Lord Drakkon. Kyle Higgins has been putting in work these past couple years with B...

In the future, weapons will both inflict and treat the damage they deal to their targets. There's something different about the next destination for the time-tossed heroes of Power Rangers HyperForce. The Twitch roleplay series rolls forward with more fun traipsing about the Power Rangers multiverse, now crossing over with the likes of the much-beloved Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book series from publisher BOOM! Studios. And who better to serve as the guest in this episode than the ongoing book's author Kyle Higgins, playing a character fans of his work on the series may know both from the comic and the series it takes inspiration from. A shattering burst of nostalgia awaits. https://youtu.be/2us14qDVo34 Higgins' appearance coincides with the Shattered Grid comic event, which...
