Things are not looking great for Batman. The city is infected with a Joker virus, the Joker may or may not be unkillable, and now the only people he has left to go to for help is the Court of Owls. Things couldn’t possibly go bad, right?

Trailer: ‘RAIDERS! The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made’

In 1982, three 11-year-olds in Mississippi decided to remake Raiders of the Lost Ark. It took them 7 turbulent years that tested their resolve, strained their friendships, and nearly burned down their parents house. They completed every scene except one… the airplane scene. 33 years later, the friends reunite to finally finish the childhood dream. But is it easier to film a whole movie as kids… or one scene as adults?

Image Comics Announces ‘Roche Limit: Clandestiny’

ROCHE LIMIT: CLANDESTINY PUSHES SCIENCE FICTION TO NEW HEIGHTS
A new story arc set 75 years after ROCHE LIMIT begins this May

Bestselling writer Michael Moreci and artists Kyle Charles and Vic Malhotra team up with volume two of a groundbreaking sci-fi trilogy, ROCHE LIMIT: CLANDESTINY. This new series will launch from Image Comics on May 6.

In ROCHE LIMIT: CLANDESTINY #1, it’s 75 years after the events that left the Roche Limit colony in flames. When a crew of military and science personnel are sent to the forgotten and desolate planet on a mysterious expedition, they quickly learn its dark secrets—and that their mission is not what they thought it to be. With danger lurking all around, the crew members fight to find a way off the planet and resist the mysterious presence that haunts them all.    Roche Limit Clandestiny

“The success of Roche Limit has been more than I could ever hope for, considering it’s a pretty out-there book,” said Moreci. “What’s exciting is this new volume pushes things further, introducing a whole new cast and story while maintaining the thematic core that readers have loved so far.”

ROCHE LIMIT: CLANDESTINY #1 hits stores on May 6. Cover A (Charles) can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR150507. Cover B (Malhotra) can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR150508.

Top o’ the Lot: The “Worst” of The New 52

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.

It doesn’t seem like that very long ago at all that DC Comics announced their plans to relaunch every single title in their comic book line. Despite those feelings, however, the New 52 is, in fact, ending, and while we took a look back at the best books that were part of the initial launch of the moniker, this week we’re looking at those New 52 launch titles that should have lasted, but just didn’t finish the race. DC threw its best and brightest characters and talent at readers, and while a lot of it ended up making it all the way to the New 52’s end, a few brilliant stars burned out way sooner than we wanted them to. So, without further ado, we love good writing, adore quality artwork, and are really going to miss that logo, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: The “Worst” of the New 52.New 52 Logo Continue reading Top o’ the Lot: The “Worst” of The New 52
