News and rumors have been flying since news broke that Disney is in talks to buy large pieces of Fox. Fox, of course houses a large piece of the Marvel Universe, including all Mutants (X-Men and all associated characters) and the Fantastic Four (and all major FF villains). The fact that (if this deal is goes through) all of Marvel’s characters could finally be under one studio could be a huge win for comic fans. Everyone wants to see Wolverine take on the Hulk on the big screen.

The battle has been raging since 2014, Con VS Con, West Coast VS Midwest, San Diego VS Salt Lake. What this writer sees as a petty and expensive display of male genitalia, has turned into front page news. And honestly, its pathetic.

The lawsuit has been tearing through courts and nerd circles for three years. In 2014, San Diego Comic-Con sued Salt Lake Comic Con for a trademark violation over the use of the term “comic con.” In response, Salt Lake Comic Con has protested, saying that a number of other events use the words “comic con.”

In this simple fact, they are beyond correct. Our biggest events in the country often use the specific words “Comic con”. If you’re skeptical of that last statement, just scroll to the bottom.

It’s been a while, but here we are. DC’s Dark Knights Metal officially kicks off today (it’s gonna go fast, grab it while you can.) Marvel continues it’s omage to Jack Kirby with some more True Believers reprints, along with their fast selling Generations series. A relatively slow week for comic fans, but the offerings we do have this week are delicious.

Now……

It’s Wednesday, that means a whole slew of new comics are on the racks! Both Marvel and Image have some exciting reprints coming out. It seems Marvel is getting ready for Spider-Man: Homecoming and are releasing a great deal of True Believer reprints of some of Spidey’s #1’s. Image is releasing a reprint of Spawn #1 complete with a foil cover and a director’s cut. I’m not 100% on what a Director’s Cut of a comic would be, but it’s exciting nonetheless. Plus, a new title from Top Rated Publisher, Top Cow is always worth getting excited about. DC is pushing out two more Warner Bros. crossovers this week that can’t be missed either. Come on, Elmer Fudd and Batman is going to be hilarious, and Jonah Hex and Yosemite Sam is just to perfect of a match up to miss. So without any further adieu…..

We woke today with the news of Adam West’s passing. Adam was such a huge part of a lot of our childhoods and even into our adulthood, so this news hit so many of us hard. I know I can’t be the only one that ran around in my Batman Under-roos pretending to save the day from a nasty villain or to this day still wanting his fun gadgets neatly tucked away in that utility belt. He was best known from his portrayal of Batman from the 1966-68 T.V. series and the younger generation might better know him from Family Guy, where he played a comical  version of himself. Adam had been acting since 1959 and worked right up until his passing so everyone has come across him from at least one of his many projects. He’s done everything from serious films, kids movies to cartoons (adult and children’s). In any project he worked he was immediately recognizable, his voice alone is iconic. You can’t help but adore a serious actor who is comfortable enough to make fun of himself or take on more comical roles. I think that’s one thing that made him so endearing. It breaks my heart to lay another legend to rest. Rest In Peace Mr. West we will carry you in our childhood memories and remember you always. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends from all of us here at The Nerdery.

This past week has been amazing. Red Dog #4, Eclipse #7, and so much more just days after Houston’s Comicpalooza (more on that to come). After a slight delay, DC’s Button series continues, and rumor has it that it will lead up to the Countdown to Doomsday event. Looks like DC is working a pretty awesome long game. After a huge delay, Justice League VS Mighty Morphin Power Rangers continues with issue #4 (it’s about time). Meanwhile, Image celebrates its 25th anniversary and Spawn’s Anniversary with reprints of Spawn #1 and an array of Spawn variant covers for other titles. Marvel continues their Secret Empire with issue #2 and drops a new Luke Cage #1 and Generation X #1.

It’s never a bad week to be a comic book reader.
