This week, POW! Entertainment announced it has sold the likeness, voice, signature, and several other parts of Stan Lee’s legacy to Genius Brands, which plans on creating a Stan Lee universe. We discuss the possible downside of this announcement and what they might be able to do instead.
In movie news, we talk about the lawsuit between several theater companies and the state of New Jersey over potential openings. We then shift over to discuss the movie Host, which will be debuting later this year on Shudder.
Speaking of subscription services, we talk about the significant jump in subscribers to Disney+ attributed to the release of Hamilton, followed by a discussion of the decline of DC Universe with the announcement that Season Two of Stargirl will only be available on The CW.
This week, we return to James Tynion’s hit Something Is Killing the Children with Issue #8. We discuss what some of the changes in this issue mean and where it leads some of our characters.
We head over to Image and discuss the second issue of Adventureman as Claire figures out the address in the book is an actual building she can visit. But not everything is as it seems, and, before long, Claire has to find her way past some killer robots to get home.
Scout Comics takes us into the swamps of Louisiana where legend of a murderous loggerhead turtle fills the air. But is his only goal murder, or is he trying to protect his land and his people?
Finally, we meet up with the Fantastic Four in Empyre Fantastic Four #0. This issue is meant to help us prepare for the upcoming event, but we also get a interesting look at the team dynamic of Marvel’s first family.
