Toronto-based Chapterhouse Comics is a fairly new company in the comic book publishing game, but they are taking full initiative with what they want to do. And that is bring homegrown Canadian comic books to the world. They’ve begun with Captain Canuck and Northguard, which had already existed and were published independently for decades, and has continued with new modern heroes like The Pitiful Human Lizard and Die Kitty Die! Comic book publishing isn’t an easy thing these days, but Chapterhouse has some star power behind them. Namely in the form of their Chief Creative Officer, Hollywood actor Jay Baruchel (and my fellow Montrealer), star of Tropic Thunder, This Is The End and Disney’s The Sorceror’s Apprentice. Jay is not only the CCO, he is also the writer of Captain Canuck: Year One, a new series that reboots Comely’s unapologetically (for a change) Canadian superhero from the ground up and for a new audience.

“This is your birthright, Arthur.” throneSince the credits rolled on Justice League: War and we saw Ocean Master ominously rise from beneath the surface of the waves, this has been the DC animated movie I’ve been waiting for. Throne of Atlantis is still arguably one of my favourite Justice League stories of all time and definitely one of my top events of the New 52. Here we saw Aquaman divided between the people he chose to save and those who he calls family. Orm took all his pent up aggression and rage and directed it towards the surface world as the result of a misunderstanding of monumental proportions and the League were called upon to set things right. There was a distinct lack of any mention of Arthur Curry in DC’s first venture in the animated universe of the New 52 in Justice League: War or any of the following movies but with good reason. Throne of Atlantis is effectively ‘Aquaman Begins’; bringing about a new animated origin story for the King of the Seven Seas. Read more...

destiny_by_ecodigital-d5vuqdxBungie took us on, arguably, one of the greatest science fiction of this generation with the Halo franchise. They proved to the world that a First Person Shooter could have depth and an engaging storyline while also rewarding the player for their skill, dedication and commitment to progression. When they handed over the reins to 343 Studios following Halo Reach, many wondered how you could follow up on such an astounding achievement. Then Destiny was announced; a cross between an FPS, a Massively Multiplayer Online and a Role Playing Game. It was a bold undertaking. How could Bungie successfully incorporate key elements from the three most successful and well-loved gaming genres and make them work? It has been tried before with varying degrees of success and failure. This was going to be a huge gamble on the developer’s part. Read more...

DestinyBungie are synonymous with high quality, well thought out, visually arresting and captivating video games with their most successful franchise to date beginning the Halo series. Halo revolutionised the first person for the Xbox in 2001 when it proved that the format could work on a console as it was previously thought that PC gaming was the perfect stage for such a game. The control system was weighted and organic to play, the mix of open world and linear gameplay was revolutionary, the graphics were stunning and the story was a brand new take on the space opera that caught the imaginations of gamers worldwide. Fast forward to 2007 and Bungie released Halo 3 which seemed to be the final chapter in their trilogy. The adventures of the Master Chief fell to 343 Studios and Bungie left to develop a new IP which they promised would be more evocative than anything gamers had ever seen. Read more...

Nathan5Nathan Fillion is Nova!!! Wait...wait. The director, James Gunn, just tweeted. He’s not. Wait! Wait! He’s in a cameo! WE’LL TAKE IT! This has been the emotional roller coaster that we geeks have been going through in the last 48 hours. Finally, it had seemed that our darling Firefly/Serenity/Castle star had finally joined the Marvel family, and then...it was all taken from us. And now, there’s a glimmer of hope. Nate may not be Richard Rider, but he will be SOMEONE, and you’re not going to give him a meaningless role. Heck, even Gary Shandling’s tiny role as Senator Stern has become memorable and spawned an internet sensation (see Captain America: Winter Soldier AND like, the internet). Read more...

Flashpoint-Paradox-first-image-fixJust before DC Comics unleashed the New 52, they put together an one last mega-event for the DC Universe that many of us grew up with. It was called Flashpoint, and it featured the newly returned Barry Allen trapped in an alternate universe created by Reverse Flash where his mother was very much alive and he was not The Flash anymore. That wasn't even the shocking part of the Flashpoint universe, pretty much all of the DC heroes from Batman to Cyborg were drastically changed. Read more...
