UK Royal Mail Agatha Christie stamp

A few months ago, the U.K.’s Royal Mail released a set of stamps inspired by the works of Agatha Christie, one of the greatest mystery writers of all time, in honor of the 100th anniversary of her first detective story – The Mysterious Affair at Styles, which introduced Hercule Poirot, the famous fictional Belgian detective. But these are no ordinary stamps.

Each of the six designs is based on one of Christie’s popular novels and each contains hidden clues pertaining to its respective title — Murder on the Orient Express, The Body in the Library, And Then There Were None, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, A Murder is Announced, and the aforementioned The Mysterious Affair at Styles.

Check out images of all six designs here below.

Wintercon 2016

Many people attend conventions in hope of meeting their favorite celebrities and hearing cool stories in panels or Q&As. But for many geeks out there, conventions are the place to be for cool merchandise, comics, and a chance to meet and support favorite and independent artists in the Artist Alley. Earlier this month, I attended NY Wintercon at the Resorts World Casino NYC in Queens, NY and after covering my panels and conducting a few interviews, I did what many fans did — I hit the convention floor to do some holiday shopping for both my family… and for myself.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Props

A video has been released showing the making of some ultra cool Star Wars: The Force Awakens Ultimate Studio Edition props made by a company that actually worked on the props for the movie itself. These collectibles include replicas of Darth Vader’s damaged helmet, Rey’s staff, and Finn’s blood-marked stormtrooper helmet.

If you’re a Star Wars fanatic who loves to purchase collectibles and prop replicas, you’re going to want to get your hands on these bad boys. They’re about as good as you can get apart from actually getting your hands on official props. But unfortunately, not many fans will easily be able to afford them.

You can find more information, including where to buy them, and see the video of some of them being made below.

Star Wars Day May the 4th package

Greetings, and Happy Star Wars Day to you all.

Over the years, “May the 4th” has taken on a life of its own. What began as a pun on the famous Star Wars quote “May The Force be with you,” has now become a global holiday that has spilled over into non-geek sectors. Every major retailer is offering deals in honor of this observance, and even people who aren’t mega-fans of the franchise were on social media bright and early this morning to wish others a “Happy Star Wars Day.”

Michael Chabon, Brian K. Vaughan Join Hasbro Cinematic Universe Writer’s Room

Hasbro Cinematic Universe

Last December, Paramount Pictures announced the development of a shared cinematic universe based on their Hasbro properties – including G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand), Micronauts, Visionairies, and ROM – similar to the one they are currently working on for their extremely lucrative Transformers franchise. The next logical step was to assemble a team of creative samurai to help them foster Hollywood’s latest attempt to one-up Marvel to the silver screen.

The studio just announced that they have put together a jaw-dropping writers’ room that includes Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon (The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Wonder Boys) and Eisner Award-winning comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Saga).
