The online game “SMITE: Battleground of the Gods” comes to comics!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—Dark Horse proudly announces the newest video game comic book in its long line of best-selling titles with SMITE: The Pantheon War!
From veteran games writer John Jackson Miller (Star Wars, Mass Effect), cowriter Jack Banish, and artist Eduardo Francisco (Eve: Valkyrie, Captain Midnight), SMITE: The Pantheon War collects the three-part digital comic series telling the tale of the looming war between the pantheons!
It is an age where gods live among the mortals over which they rule. The worship of mortals is needed by the gods to maintain their divinity—but the number of gods has swelled, and there are fewer mortal faithful for the individual gods in each pantheon. Only the gods who maintain worshipers will survive, and so tensions are rising among the pantheons. There is an uneasy peace…but peace is not desired by all!
SMITE: The Pantheon War (978-1-50670-233-9 / $14.99) is in stores December 28, 2016. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop or through these fine retailers:
Hi-Rez Studios’ SMITE (PC, Xbox One, PS4) is a free-to-play, team-based action game with a global community of more than fourteen million players. With more than seventy playable mythological gods, players battle for domination across six intense game modes.

A little while ago I wrote about why the small cons have an advantage over the gigantic San Diego Comic Con. So it was in this spirit that went down to Chicago, IL for C2E2. The trip simply confirmed everything I said before.
The show floor itself is divided into three sections. The autograph area, where for a small fee you can get an autograph and a picture from one of your favorite supporting cast members.
The main floor, where you can buy just about anything comic book or fantasy related. Unlike the big cons there’s nothing new here, none of the...
More people should be going to any and all of the little “baby-cons” across the country. I’ve made this statement to as many people as would listen. Partially in the hope of reducing the giant crowds at the real Comic-Con in San Diego, but also because these little cons are what SDCC used to be.
Each year I make the trip down to San Diego I see more and more of the comics being swallowed up by whatever the latest upcoming blockbuster needs to advertise that year. It’s gotten to that point that more and more people are referring to it...
There has been a lot of discussion about the latest Marvel/Netflix collaboration “Iron Fist”. I was very worried when every review I read about the show said almost the exact same horrible things. While I normally prefer to read a review of the entire series, I also believe that 6 episodes (almost half the series) is more than enough time to establish your characters and hook in the viewer. When time finally arrived for me to watch it for myself, I cracked open a bottle of whiskey to help me get through the difficult chore ahead of me. Five episodes...

If you're like me, you use instagram to look at a bunch of awesome artists do their thing. Sometimes you get real lucky and you get to witness some of your favorites do a step by step process.

Late last week news broke out of "Aquaman" star Jason Momoa playing the Crow in the reboot. Many people had apprehensions, your humble narrator being one of them. My co-host on Fantastic Jorum (Wednesday nights 6:30 pm pacific time on allgames.com) JOE said Momoa wasn't fit to play Eric Draven. i dont think Eric Draven needs to be in the reboot. The nature of the crow as a concept is that it can be anyone! So they can make a totally new movie. They can tell a totally new story that could add to the mythos, but i digress this...
The dismal performance of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows has Paramount rethinking the future of the franchise. A source from inside the studio has reported just how drastic the reaction is.
The studio is reportedly going to fire the writing team currently working on the third movie in favor of a full on reboot. A reboot means all new director and all new design for the turtles. There is still a debate among the higher ups on whether to stay live action or go back to animated. There’s a debate over the profitability of big name actors and...

You can check out Flicks In The City's videos at the the link below. Let us know if you agree with Dave Gibbons assesment of Batman v Superman or if you think he's the one...
Gambit – one of the smoothest, best looking operators in the world. Deadpool – one of the most annoying, ugliest dirtbags around. Naturally these two have beef. Be there this June when tensions reach their boiling points in DEADPOOL V GAMBIT #1 – a new limited series from writers Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (Thunderbolts) and artist Danilo Beyruth (Gwenpool)! Did you know that the “V” stands for “Vs.”? Crazy, right? Know what’s crazier? These two have a secret history together – working to pull con jobs across the Marvel Universe. That’s right, and now the Regeneratin’ Degenerate and the Ragin’ Cajun are...
