RoboCop Returns To Comics In Citizens Arrest


RoboCop is returning to the world of comic books!

Set to arrive this spring from Boom! Studios, RoboCop: Citizens Arrest hails from Brian Wood and Jorge Coelho and is set 30 years after the events of the original movie. In this new world, law enforcement has been placed in the hands of the citizens, rendering Murphy obsolete.

"It’s not just that there’s a new model of Robocop out there, but we have an entirely new OCP [Omni Consumer Products] with an entirely new way they’re looking to privatize and militarize law enforcement that makes every citizen a complicit actor,” Wood told io9. "The idea of crowdsourced justice is bigger than just pointing out the dangers of social media, and includes vigilantism, mob justice, class divide, and how people react to ‘the other.’ And all that is one step removed from more passive, less obvious things like segregation and gentrification."

Wood also feels as though 2018 is the right time to revisit RoboCop.

"RoboCop hits a whole bunch of topics and themes that are important to me, that feel relevant and feel like good drama," he explained. "And that stand the test of time — think about that original film that was all about union busting, the militarization of police, privatizing public services and abusive media. In some ways it feels more topical now than in the '80s. I want to talk about that, I want to hit that hard."


RoboCop: Citizens Arrest #1 arrives this April.

Jumanji Crosses $700-Million Worldwide


Jumanji can't be stopped!

The Dwayne Johnson sequel has been having an incredible box office run since it hit the big screen last month. The Jake Kasdan sequel has now become one of the most successful releases of 2017, grossing $293.7-Million domestically and $408-Million internationally for a global cume currently totalling a very strong $701-Million.

The film has eclipsed the global total of Zack Snyder's Justice League, and is now the 6th highest domestic grosser for Sony Pictures. The movie will soon pass Skyfall to take the number five spot, placing it behind the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies and Jon Watts' much-loved Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Granted, Jumanji hasn't had a whole lot of competition at the box office since release, but we're betting that the top brass over at Sony are very proud of these numbers regardless.

And the film still has to open in Japan on April 6th!

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, the sequel to the 1995 Robin Williams classic, is in theatres now!

Review: Chapterhouse - Captain Canuck #2


Toronto is under attack and a hero lies dying in the street.

Such is the scene readers will witness in the opening pages of Captain Canuck #2 when Canada's costumed crime fighter returns to stores next week from Chapterhouse Publishing.

As Northguard goes down, Agent Ritchie desperately tries to keep her partner safe from Pharos, the rampaging alien menace currently laying waste to Dundas Square. Learning of their predicament, Manon DesChamps calls in the cavalry and a squad of highly trained soldiers jump into action, transforming Toronto into a warzone as they engage the creature.

Seizing the opportunity, Agent Ritchie quickly moves to get Northguard onboard a nearby aircraft to receive the medical attention he needs. As they take to the air, Pharos continues his attack on the city, decimating all who dare to get in his way. In a desperate attempt to end the situation, the military calls in a pair of fighter jets who proceed to unleash a barrage of fiery missiles on the creature. However, despite taking a direct hit, Pharos remains standing.

The issue then takes readers back to Flin Flon where we join Tom Evans as he watches the attack on television - just as Pharos mysteriously disappears in a flash of golden light. Knowing he should be in the city to help, Tom prepares to leave, but is stopped short when he is called to a band meeting on the reserve he calls home. Going before the council, Tom prepares to plead his case, but before a judgment can be passed, Agent Ritchie and P.A.C.T. arrive to recruit Captain Canuck to their cause, begging him to aid in stopping the creature before it is too late.


Meanwhile, Pharos shows up in Ottawa and the military quickly moves to intercept. In the thick of things, we also discover that Redcoat and the people of Equilibrium are also on scene and ready to lay waste to this threat once and for all.

Joining the mission is scientist Parminder Patel, who's desperate to see the creature up close and personal once again. A wish she sees granted after Pharos engages her people and quickly proves just how powerful he really is - and how vastly outmatched her people are. Now trapped within a blazing ring of burning rubble, Dr. Patel has absolutely nowhere to go.

As Pharos continues his advance, she is horrified to realize that this is where she'll die...

...Until Captain Canuck arrives on the scene to save the day!

The latest issue of Captain Canuck is one seriously awesome rollercoaster ride of a read! Kalman Andrasofszky and Leonard Kirk have crafted an exciting page-turner of a tale that explodes with action straight from the get-go, and ends on a cliff-hanger that is guaranteed to have readers crying out to the comic book gods for more!

Rating: 5/5 - "Playing out like a Michael Bay movie on meth, the latest issue of Captain Canuck continues to build towards the ultimate confrontation between man and monster."

Captain Canuck #2 arrives on newsstands Wednesday, January 24th.

And, if you're looking for more Chapterverse adventures, be sure to pop on over to the official Chapterhouse Publishing website.

Cold Iron Studios Is Working On A New Alien Game


FoxNext Games has announced that a new game set within the Alien universe is coming!

Today, the studio announced that they have acquired Cold Iron Studios from Perfect World Entertainment, who will develop the new shooter for release on PC and consoles.

Games president of FoxNext Games, Aaron Loeb said: “I am a personal fan of Cold Iron’s previous work, and all of us at FoxNext Games are thrilled to be working with them as they create an action-packed persistent world, steeped in the mysteries of this beloved ‘Alien’ universe.”

Cold Iron Studios CEO Craig Zinkievich Zinkievich added: “Our background in building online worlds and taking established franchises to the next level in interactive entertainment is a precise fit with [FoxNext’s] product road map ahead.”

Founded in 2015, Cold Iron Studios has a total of 25 employees, some who've worked on such gaming titles as Star Trek Online, Metroid Prime 3 and Borderlands among others.

No further details about the game were released, but given the developer's background, it's a pretty safe bet that this new shooter will focus on a multiplayer element.

And that's just fine with us!
