Brian Michael Bendis Promotes Free Comic Book Day!

Free Comic Book Day is the first Saturday in May, this year May 3rd!

Powers Comes to Playstation Courtesy of Sony Pictures TV

powersDuring 2013′s E3, Sony promised original programming for it’s newest gaming platform, the Playstation 4. Details on exactly what that was remained a bit vague. We now have an idea as they have announced the first show, Powers, based on the comic book series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.

The series is being produced by PlayStation which is part of Sony Pictures TV. There had been some movement on the series in the past, including a pilot for FX. The new series will be penned by Charlie Huston. Bendis, Oeming and Michael Dinner will executive produce with Huston and Remi Aubuchon, along with Circle of Confusion’s David Engel, David Alpert and Lawrence Mattis. Huston and Aubuchon will serve as showrunners.

The series combines noir, police procedural and superheroes and follows a detective who protects humans and investigates cases involving folks with superpowers.

There’s no date set yet for the series to start but it is reported the show will be 10 episodes.

Original programming is becoming a big deal on gaming platforms. During their pitch for the Xbox One, Microsoft mentioned an original series based on the Halo video game.

Preview: Who Withstood the Cataclysm? Your First Look at Survive #1!

This March, the Ultimate Universe attempts to rebuild from total devastation at the hands of Galactus. But with every ending there comes a new beginning – and the next stage of the Ultimate Universe starts here!  Today, Marvel has released a first look at Survive #1 from the team of Brian Michael Bendis and Joe Quinones!

Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds descended upon the Ultimate Universe with an insatiable hunger. Though he was defeated by the bravery of a small band of heroes – the cost was devastatingly high. New York City lays a smoldering ruin, and not everyone made it back alive. Many of the Ultimates are dead – and the remaining heroes are all beaten, broken, and emotionally drained.

In an interview with Marvel.com Brian Michael Bendis said:

You’ve got all these characters [that] have been through hell together and now they’re coming out the other side and they’re kind of committed to each other, now that Captain America’s gone and some other characters aren’t making it back.

A lot of these characters are very young, and with that comes a lot of emotion, a lot of drama, a lot of people making some disastrous mistakes both in their professional and in their personal lives; and all of that will be on display right away.

Witness the birth of a new team of Ultimates! Who survived the fury of Galactus? Who didn’t make it out alive? What will become of S.H.I.E.L.D? The future of the Ultimate Universe is happening now! All your questions will be answered this March!
