The second trailer to Avengers: Age of Ultron premiered during last night’s National Sportsball Championship Game, bringing together both comic book and sports geeks alike. It has a few bits of new footage, without giving away too much, which I appreciate. And the piano keys riffing on “Got No Strings On Me” gives it creepy vibe. It better be on the movie soundtrack, IMO.
I think this trailer is cool, but I liked the first one better. The overriding question I have from seeing this is: Why did the Black Widow stop straightening her hair like in “The Winter Soldier”? I loved ScarJo’s hair in that movie.
May 1st can’t get here soon enough.
Listen up screwheads! This Wednesday Dynamite Entertainment’s anniversary special “Army of Darkness 1992.1” will be hitting the shelves at comic shops everywhere. The square-bound anthology edition features the talents of Steve Niles, James Kuhoric, Cullen Bunn and Mike Raicht (along with yours truly) writing untold tales of everyone’s favorite chainsaw-swinging, boomstick-blasting hero, Ashley J. Williams.
It was such a blast getting to play with Ash again and it was a real honor to have my name on a book with some of the top talents in comics! Now, since I think this occasion merits doing something special to commemorate it, I’m going to reward all my readers with a treat!

You knew that the Twelfth (or is it really Thirteenth?) Doctor – as played by Peter Capaldi – wasn’t far behind, right?
