Wolverine. Certainly one of the most popular and well-known comic heroes (or anti-heroes, I should probably say). Combined with the fact that he was the focus of a live-action movie that was released just a few weeks ago, it should come as a shock to no one that he has a new series related to his Weapon X days. But is it any good, or is it just a forgettable cash-in on the movie?

Looks like the DVD and Blu-ray for Evolution will have slightly different coverart (I’m sure many people will just jump at the chance to get variant coverart for such a…. fine…. piece of entertainment.
Here are the different covers for the 5 of you that are interested.
Just fantastic, I’m sure Goku’s flexed arm will be the toast of the industry.
Comes out on July 28th, and it appears people who get the Blu-ray will also get a Digital Copy.

Marvel Comics has begun a new miniseries that may just be one of the greatest ideas of all time: a series starring Lockjaw and other famous super animals from the Marvel universe. This includes Kitty Pryde’s Lockheed, Falcon’s Redwing, Speedball’s Niels (AKA “Hairball”), Aunt May’s Ms. Lion, and…a frog Thor? What?

DC Comics has just launched a new Power Girl series, and going into this first issue, I only knew one thing about the character: boobs. While there certainly are plenty of those featured throughout the issue, the creative team does attempt to bring a little more to the table than that. But do they succeed?

Digimon in the USA has always had an odd history. Never quite getting a real release for any of it’s seasons on DVD (minus a single DVD for the first season released nearly a decade ago that had over 10 episodes stuffed onto it and the first three films in their ‘edited into one film for the USA’ version on a different DVD) Well Go USA has teamed up with Toei USA to bring boxsets of the newest season to the USA.
After some lackluster online streaming and video on demand offerings recently, let’s see if this is finally a Digimon release fans can get behind and enjoy.

Oh boy, everyone is gonna love this….
Apparently Fox is prepping a new/different (maybe it’s the foreign cut?) of Dragonball Evolution for home video, and it will be called….
Dragonball Evolution: Z-Edition
I’m trying not to laugh, but…. lol
edit- Having watched a screener of the “Z-Edition” film with two other staff members, I think it’s probably likely that “Z-Edition” is just what they will be calling the DVD instead of special edition, or any other name and not necessarily signifying a new cut of the movie. Will update if we get any more info on it.

FUNimation has partnered with the Japanese production company Media Factory to stream the action anime, “Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom” on the FUNimation Video Portal. The first five episodes are now available for streaming, and are all rated TV-MA. Each episode is free to stream and will be presented in its original Japanese dialogue with English translations.

The show is an adaptation of the “Phantom of Inferno” visual novel, which follows an unsuspecting witness that is brainwashed into joining a mysterious organization called Inferno and becoming their newest assassin.
The fifth episode of Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom was released onto the FUNimation Video Portal within 45-minutes of its Japanese broadcast debut on TV Tokyo. Future episodes are expected to be released online within 24 hours of its Japanese broadcast debut.
