It is the beginning of the week, so it is time for our rundown on what is coming out this week in the geek world of movies, comic books, television and video games.
Gotham City Impostors finally makes its way to a PC, XBOX 36o or PS3 near you, February 7th (on PC and Playstation Americas, Feb. 8th on XBOX360 and Playstation everywhere else). It will be available as a download, and I will be first in line, getting my fake Batmen (or Jokerz) First-Person-Shoot on (as we mentioned in an earlier post). Did I mention it was only $15?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 1: Change is Constant collects the first six issues of the new TMNT comic series. The all new stories are a throw back to how the turtles originally appear in the comics, and include a new origin story. It’s written by Tom Waltz, Dan Duncan and original co-creator Kevin Eastman.
Severed #7 comes out on February 8th from Image Comics. The horror comic from Scott Snyder (Batman, American Vampire, Swampthing), Scott Tuft and art from Attila Futaki concludes Wednesday. So far it has been a great book that conjures up old school horror, it goes light (compared to most modern comic books) on the gore, and heavy on the type of tone and anticipation that can make these stories classics. Interestingly, this issue was previously advertised as the last one, but a Facebook post this morning called it the end of the first arc. We can only hope that Snyder has more in store for us.
Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace in 3D is out in theaters on February 10th. As you may have seen us start to write about recently (and you will see more on that), again the Star Wars films will be making their way into theaters, now in 3D. Is it worth the money?
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (also in 3D) hits the theaters on February 10th as well. Why is it on this list? Well, just because it is based (quite loosely) on a Jules Verne book. Yes, he wrote The Mysterious Island as a sequel, but it wasn’t to Journey to the Center of the Earth. It was actually a sequel to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and In Search of The Castaways. Really this is just here so that if you see this movie, you will not hate Jules Verne’s writing anymore than you might have after seeing the first “Journey” movie. He’s dead, he can’t control what The Rock does in his name.
If we forgot something, or you really enjoyed one of these (or if you really didn’t), leave a comment here or on Twitter!
