You want to come down to Midtown Comics Downtown for one of our star signings, but you don’t know where to start? Well then, have I got all the answers for the questions you were pondering on! (And the ones you didn’t even think to ask!) Fans excitedly waiting for the NYCC signings to begin! How do the signings work? It’s so easy! Simply show up to the store (we suggest a little bit early) and purchase the comic book(s) or items you would like to get signed. Once you have those, you can jump on the line that forms outside the store. There, you will receive a ticket. Once the artist is ready, we take the first part of the line up into the store to wait inside. There, you can un-bag and un-board your comics so they are ready to be signed! When you reach the front of the line, a Midtown employee (most likely me!) will take your ticket and hand you Midtown Comics Certificates of Authenticity. When it’s your turn, head up to the creator table and VOILA! They will sign your books or items! Easy, right? What time should I get there? We try to run our signings at hours that work best for our customers. Normal signing start time is 6pm and it runs until the store closes at 8pm. However you should always check our Facebook Events page for every event to make sure that this is the scheduled time. We suggest you show up a little bit early, particularly for the higher volume, busier signings. This will ensure you get your item signed as quickly as possible. The line typically wraps outside. This means the closer you are to the front of the line, the less time you have to stand out in the cold. If you haven’t purchased a comic from us to be signed yet, make sure to show up a little bit early to make your purchase! How much does a Midtown Comics signing cost? We don’t charge for the signature itself, unless you choose to do CGC (have your comic sent out to be graded.) In this case there is a small creator fee that varies for every guest. Instead, we require that you purchase 1 item from the store to be signed. It could be a comic from the creator (perhaps a Midtown Exclusive variant cover), a POP or figure of a character the creator worked on, or even a piece of apparel! How many items can I get signed? You can get up to 3 items signed. If there are multiple creators, it is 3 from each creator. For those who want additional items signed, if there is time permitting, we will allow customers to get their first 3 items signed, receive another ticket and hop back on the line for those 3 extra items. What kind of items can I get signed? We only require that you purchase 1 item from the store for the signing. Although technically it doesn’t have to be one of your 3 items signed if you already have 3 things you had in mind. The other two items you can purchase from us as well or bring something from home- it’s entirely up to you! As long as it has a sign-able surface, and a link to the creator signing it, anything is game! Typical signed items include comics from the creator, variant covers from the creator and POP’s! But I have also seen some great atypical items signed like folios, purses, baseballs, art books, hats, posters, utility belts and tablecloths! While we don’t encourage you to get too creative, we suggest finding items that have value to you! Fans show off their Marvel Masterpiece cards to artist Joe Jusko to get signed! What kind of guests do you bring in for signings? Anyone related to our business, and most importantly, guests that have value to YOU! We’ve had comic book writers and artists like: Scott Snyder, Francesco Mattina. We also bring in musical artists like Lights, authors, actors, and voice actors. If there is someone you would love to get into the store for a signing, reach out to us on social media and let us know! Do I need to sign up? Is there limited space? There is no sign up. The only limitation we have for the majority of our signings is a time constraint. This is because most signings only run for 2 hours. We try to keep things moving faster for larger signings to ensure as best we can that everyone on the line gets into the signing. Where is the Midtown Comics Downtown store? Midtown Comics Downtown is at64 Fulton St, New York, NY, near the corner of Gold St. It is easily accessible from the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, J, and Z trains from the Fulton Street Station. Can I get sketches/commissions done? This depends on the artist at the signing, and the number of people waiting for the signing. Some artists are willing to do sketches for an extra fee. Some will do them for no fee. Some won’t do them at all. Sometimes one of our guests will be willing to do sketches, but the line and time constraints don’t allow for it. As a rule, it’s best to ask one of the Midtown Comics employees at the store at each signing for details. Mark Bagley working on a Spider-Man sketch Can I take a photo with the guests? I can’t give a definitive “YES” to this question because it depends on the creator. However, most signings guests we have are more than happy to put a grin on and get cozy for a picture. As always, it’s best to ask one of our Midtown employees for a swift and accurate answer. Do you offer CGC or other grading services? Yes! Midtown Comics is now offering in-store CGC to have comics signed at our signings graded and sealed for collectors! As a service which is almost exclusively reserved for convention attendees, we’re excited to bring this opportunity to our Midtown customers!

Not sure if you want to dive into CGC? Stay tuned for next week’s post where we break down all your CGG Questions, concerns and give you the answers and information you crave!

The Boba Fett movie is officially dead, but new details have recently emerged that reveal plot points for what might have been in the standalone story. , the Boba Fett film would have followed not just the infamous Mandalorian clone, but the bounty-hunting associates seen standing next to him in The Empire Strikes Back. RELATED: The lizard-like Bossk, the head wrap-sporting Dengar, a rogue protocol droid dubbed 4-Lom, the insectoid tracker Zuckuss, the IC-88 assassin droid, and of course Boba Fett himself, were all hired by Darth Vader in Empire to find the Millennium Falcon, “by any methods necessary.” The Sith lord noted in particular to Fett that he wanted the Falcon’s crew alive, wagging a finger in his face and pointedly instructing, “No disintegration.” The backgrounds of these bounty hunters have since been expanded to varying degrees over the years, both within and outside of main Star Wars continuity. Boba Fett seemingly would have fleshed-out their characters more, however, as they worked with and against each other to capture the Falcon and her crew. RELATED: Before being loosely attached to , the Boba Fett film was originally planned with director Josh Trank at the Helm. His allegedly erratic on-set behavior during the 2015 Fantastic 4 reboot, however, forced Disney to reconsider his appointment before ultimately firing him from the project. After the returns of Solo: A Star Wars Story reportedly disappointed the studio, Disney quietly let the film stall. Last week, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy officially announced, via journalist Erick Weber, that “the Boba Fett movie was 100% dead.” Luckily for fans of Boba Fett lore, Jon Favreau’s series, , has been confirmed to hit Disney’s streaming service in 2019. How much that will deal specifically with Boba Fett, however, remains to be seen. The post appeared first on .
SPOILER WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Episode 4, Season 9 of . Tonight, The Walking Dead might have just clinched how Rick Grimes will leave the series. The man who’s led the show from its nascency only has one episode left before leaving for good and irrevocably changing the face of one of the most popular shows in television history. RELATED: Andrew Lincoln announced his departure from the series he’s helmed for nine seasons earlier this year, citing the desire to spend more time with family start a new chapter in his career. But rumors also swirled that he’d been creatively frustrated with the decision to kill off Carl, which makes sense, given how important Lincoln always believed Carl was to Rick’s motivation. Carl has continued to serve in that capacity even from beyond the grave. It was essentially his dying wish that Rick offer amnesty to the Saviors and try to build a better world run by mercy and compassion. Rick’s been so committed to bringing that vision about, he’s grown blind to the fact that it might not work. This week, those problems came to a head when Daryl actively aided Maggie in her assassination of Negan by intentionally keeping Rick away from Alexandria. The two wind up trapped in a pit near the bridge as two different walker herds close in on them. As they try to find their way out and work together, Daryl forces Rick to face the possibility that Rick’s grief might be motivation for him to forgive the Saviors, but he can’t demand it work that way for everyone else. RELATED: He pleads with Rick to let Carl go and abandon a utopia that might not be realistic, no matter how much Rick wants to create it in his son’s honor. Rick seems like he’s finally hearing Daryl for the first time in a long time, but they don’t get much further before gunshots ring out nearby and the two men are forced to get out of the pit with more urgency. Things don’t get much better once they’re freed, what with two walker herds approaching. Rick decides to stay and lead them away from the bridge as Daryl rides off to see what’s going on, but the herds spook his horse and he gets thrown. He’s impaled on a piece of steel poking out of some reinforced concrete, putting him right back in the same position he was in in the pilot – wounded, alone and beset by monsters. RELATED: The episode ends on a cliffhanger, with no hope of rescue since Rick can’t move and no one’s around to carry him to safety. It’s doubtful we’re going to see an entire night dedicated to him writhing on a rock only to be devoured by walkers. Of course, it’s even more doubtful that Rick suffering a catastrophic injury in his penultimate episode will lead to anything but his tragic demise. How exactly everything will actually play out remains to be seen, but it’s looking more and more likely that Rick Grimes will follow in his son’s footsteps when it comes time to leave the show he started nine years ago. Airing Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC, The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Of all the character deaths at the end of this summer’s — and there were plenty to choose from — the one that hit most viewers the hardest was the young Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) disintegrating in the arms of his mentor, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man. Always ready to poke fun at their own pain, fans have developed a running joke out of the scene, finding creative new ways to remind each other of the tragedy. RELATED: With Halloween around the corner, Twitter user shared a festive twist on Peter Parker’s death found in her neighborhood: “Friends decorate outside their house for Halloween each year,” she wrote. “This is not ok.” Friends decorate outside their house for Halloween each year. This is not ok. — Tasmen (@tasmen) The photo shows a stack of pumpkins decked out in an Iron Man mask, gauntlets and an arc reactor. A limp Spider-Man costume is draped against the pumpkins, halfway covered with fallen leaves, which seem to be dispersing as if his body is coming apart from the feet up. RELATED: Reactions to the display range from “TOO SOON” to “THOSE ARE NO LONGER FRIENDS,” but one response quoted an instantly recognizable line from the movie, edited to fit this particular interpretation: “Mr. stark, I don’t feel so gourd.” The post appeared first on .
With the character only briefly seen in silhouette or out of focus in flashbacks, speculation has mounted as to who portrays Bruce Wayne on DC Universe’s . And with the latest round of casting rumors debunked, it appears the mystery of who portrays the premium streaming service’s Caped Crusader continues. that Lewis Tan, who previously appeared in this year’s Deadpool 2 as Shatterstar and as Zhou Chen on the first season of Netflix’s Iron Fist, was portraying the series’ incarnation of the Dark Knight. This rumor was compounded by this past June, holding a stack of Batman comics presumably for research. RELATED: Despite this alleged evidence, the rumor of Tan portraying Titans’ Batman has been refuted by Umberto Gonzalez, reporter for entertainment news site The Wrap. No, Lewis Tan is NOT playing Bruce Wayne in TITANS. — Umberto Gonzalez (@elmayimbe) With Tan evidently not portraying Bruce Wayne on the series, that leaves two major questions: Who is playing Batman on the inaugural DC Universe original series and what role did Tan meet with DC Entertainment for exactly this past summer? RELATED: Now streaming on DC Universe, Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove, and Lindsey Gort as Amy Rohrbach.

Over the course of a decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has introduced many types of moviegoers, be they longtime comic fans or people completely new to the world of comics, to newer, more modernized origins for many of Marvel’s characters. But Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige says the origin story in will be of a very different type. In an interview with at the British Academy Britannia Awards, Feige was asked about Captain Marvel. After praising the film’s cast and progress, Feige said, “This one is very different and very exciting… It takes place in the 1990s and while it is an origin story of our hero, it is a very different type of origin story, which we’re excited to unveil to audiences.” RELATED: Kevin Feige: is "a different type of origin story" — Variety (@Variety) Feige’s comments about the movie beg the question as to just how much Captain Marvel’s origin story in the film will differ from other MCU movies and the comics themselves. In the comics, Carol Danvers gained her original powers after the explosion of a Kree device called the Psyche-Magnetron merged her genetic structure with that of the original Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell, turning her into a human-Kree hybrid, Though Marvel’s adaptations are often faithful to their source material, the films have taken creative liberties with the origin stories of their characters, such as situating the creation of Iron Man in Afghanistan instead of Vietnam. RELATED: Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, and Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace and Annette Bening.

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Season 3, streaming now on Netflix. One of the most welcome additions to the third season of Daredevil was FBI Special Agent Ray Nadeem, a beleaguered family man who struggles to provide for his wife and son. At the beginning of the new season, incarcerated crime lord Wilson Fisk cuts a deal with Nadeem to transfer to house arrest but is eventually killed by fellow FBI agent gone rogue, Benjamin Poindexter who works with the Kingpin as the villainous Bullseye. In new interview, actor Jay Ali, who portrays Nadeem, revealed that the FBI agent’s death was not always a sure thing. RELATED: “When [showrunner Erik Oleson] told me that [Nadeem would die], I was like, ‘Okay, this is gonna be great. It’s gonna be a great arc,'” explained Ali in an interview with when he first learned of Nadeem’s impending death. “Then I remember halfway through the season, he came to me and he was like, ‘Look, we’re thinking of not actually killing Ray.’ But we had a discussion about it, and we were like, ‘It’s the right thing to do for the story, to do that.'” So while Nadeem’s death had been originally intended for character, a proposed last-minute rewrite could’ve saved the character to potentially appear in future stories across Netflix’s Marvel series. Instead, the family man became another victim at the hands of Poindexter and helped illustrate the former lawman’s descent into psychotic villainy. RELATED: Now available on Netflix, Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Joanne Whalley as Sister Maggie, Wilson Bethel as Benjamin Poindexter, Jay Ali as Rahul “Ray” Nadeem, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk.

Despite the hopes of fans, one of Marvel’s earliest heroes, , has yet to make the leap to the big screen. However, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige indicates that could change. While attending a special reception and screening for Black Panther in Los Angeles, journalist Erick Weber asked Feige about that status of Namor, whose rights could charitably be described as complicated.

When first premiered nearly five years ago, it was said that we would never see one true, proper Joker. Instead, the Batman prequel television series would feature several possible Jokers, so as to not give the character one particular origin story. Fast forward to Season 5, and now it appears as if the Clown Prince of Cime is fully formed, and ready to take Gotham City by storm. For quite a few seasons now, the birth of the Joker has been closely tied with Jerome Valeska and his twin brother, Jeremiah, both played by Cameron Monaghan. When Season 4 of Gotham concluded, Jerome was dead, and Jeremiah was following in his brother’s footsteps as a maniacal, criminal genius who left the city in chaos and ruins. The character was all but ready to become the Joker and now, with Season 5, it appears as if the Fox series will finally feature Jeremiah as the iconic Batman villain. RELATED: A new picture from the set of Gotham, which is currently in the midst of filming its fifth and final season, offers us a look at the returning Jeremiah, who now not only has the pale skin of the Joker, but also the signature green hair and colorful, striped suit.

holds a very special place in the hearts of fans, so naturally, many rejoiced when it was announced last year that the full series would be as a Blu-ray box set. However, it appears Warner Bros. Home Entertainment failed to anticipate just how much fans would rejoice, as its now increased production to 70,000 units “to accommodate overwhelming demand.” “As many fans and media have noticed, Amazon and other notable retailers were forced to suspend sales of Batman: The Complete Animated Series Deluxe Limited Edition due to unprecedented demand for this beloved series,” General Manager & EVP, Television for Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Jeff Brown said. “Sales surpassed our initial run of 30,000 limited edition box sets about four weeks ago and, rather than leave so many fans wanting, we implemented new production orders to accommodate the requests for this prized collection. A significant portion of those increased numbers have already sold, and all sites are accepting orders again.” RELATED: Batman: The Animated Series ran for two seasons from 1992 to 1995, airing over 80 episodes. In its later run, the show went under the titles of The Adventures is Batman & Robin and The New Batman Adventures, with the original run ending in 1999. Celebrating its 25th anniversary last September, Batman: The Animated Series was the first show in DC’s modern animated universe (DCAU), produced by Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm. Bringing together iconic voice casts like Kevin Conroy’s Bruce Wayne/Batman and Mark Hamill’s Joker, the “Dark Deco” aesthetic mixed with three-dimension character’s resulted in B:TAS becoming one of the most beloved interpretations of the Batman character to date.

Could we see the return of now that has a new showrunner? According to John Barrowman, the possibility has at least been discussed. In a new interview with , Barrowman, who played Captain Jack Harkness on the series, revealed that a new Torchwood series isn’t necessarily off the table. At least, not now that former showrunner Chris Chibnall is presently running things on Doctor Who. According to the actor, while Chibnall was still finalizing his deal to become the new showrunner on Doctor Who, Barrowman emailed him about Torchwood and received a promising response.

Barrowman, who recently starred on the CW’s Arrow, explained that he’s been meeting with various production companies all around the United States — including the CW — and, unsurprisingly, most of them have shown interest in securing the rights to Torchwood. The series, which served as a Doctor Who spinoff, ran between 2006 and 2011 and saw Barrowman’s Captain Harkness protect South Wales from alien attacks, along with some help from a group of experts. Though short-lived, the series has continued to find a new fanbase thanks to other storytelling platforms, including audio dramas and . Unfortunately, though, the possibility of Torchwood coming back to life on the small screen has seemed rather slim in recent years, which is why Barrowman’s conversation with Chibnall sounds so promising. When the actor emailed Chibnall, he asked if the former showrunner would be interested in a potential Torchwood revival, to which Chibnall responded rather coyly. “He e-mailed me back, and he said ‘As you probably know, I’m in the middle of something very big at the moment, and I can’t discuss anything else,'” Barrowman explained. “But he said ‘Let’s talk when things calm down a bit.’ And that was just at the beginning of his negotiations for Doctor Who.” As it turns out, if Torchwood stands any chance at a revival, Chibnall is the person who can make it happen. “If anyone can do it, it’s Chris,” said Barrowman. “Chris is the one who can make the decision, because it’s always the decision of the showrunner of Doctor Who. I was told that that’s the person who can decide about bringing back Torchwood. Or Captain Jack to Doctor Who.” RELATED: Created by Russell T.
