Comic Book Legend Stan Lee To Discuss His New Novel Convergence At Barnes & Noble At The Grove On January 31, 2015

zodiac_stanlee

Barnes & Noble at The Grove is honored to welcome legendary comic creator, Stan Lee, when he visits on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at 2PM, to discuss Convergence.

In his first prose novel, factions, each comprised of people who harness animal power from the Chinese zodiac, fight to control the fate of the world. (This is a wristbanded event. Please note that B&N will have pre-signed copies of Convergence for sale on the day of the event. Stan Lee will not be signing books on-site.)

The first volume in a planned trilogy stars Steven Lee, a teenager whose quiet visit to a Chinese museum catapults him unexpectedly into a fierce battle for control of the world. Fortunately, this involuntary global warrior soon receives assistance from an able team of uniquely talented allies. With Andie Tong’s lively black-and-white battle drawings, The Zodiac Legacy: Convergence emerges as an impressive series starter.

DC Comics Presents Movie Poster Inspired Variant Covers In March 2015

Lights, camera…Covers!

Inspired by classic Warner Bros. movie posters, DC Comics’ newest batch of variant covers are fun, imaginative…and not coming to a theater near you. But you’ll wish they were. Whether it’s Supergirl realizing that she’s not on Krypton anymore, Aquaman fighting to Free Willy, Batgirl ready to lead the Revolution (just think about it for a moment) or the Justice League…well, it’s best to just see that one for yourself.

These clever movie poster mashups are the most recent in DC’s series of monthly variant cover themes. Previous themes include monsters in October, LEGO in November and this month’s amazing Darwyn Cooke variants. In January, DC Comics will feature variant covers that pay tribute to the Flash’s 75th Anniversary, while Harley Quinn steals the stage in February. Look for these movie poster inspired variant covers in March 2015.

New Poster For The ABC Series Premiere of Marvel’s Agent Carter Debuts

Marvel Entertainment and ABC have debuted a brand new poster for the upcoming “Marvel’s Agent Carter”.

It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Agent Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field, putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – a.k.a. Captain America. When old acquaintance Howard Stark finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy — the only person he can trust — to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis, to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for selling these weapons of mass destruction. If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse.

Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Chad Michael Murray as SSR Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as SSR Agent Daniel Sousa, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, and Shea Whigham as SSR Chief Roger Dooley, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Executive producers are Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter” is set to premiere January 6, 2015 on ABC.

The New Trailer for Disney Pixar’s Inside Out

insideout0001

A full trailer for Disney Pixar’s Inside Out has arrived, inviting moviegoers to enter to mind of a young girl with an adventure comedy directed by Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up) and starring Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation,” They Came Together), Bill Hader (“Saturday Night Live,” Superbad), Lewis Black (“The Daily Show,” “Root of All Evil”), Mindy Kaling (“The Office,” “The Mindy Project”), Phyllis (“The Office,” Bad Teacher), Diane Lane (Secretariat, Man of Steel) and Kyle MacLachlan (“Twin Peaks,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”)

635536350242460017-INSIDE-OUT-GOOD

1812 1813 1814

Set inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley, Inside Out knows that growing up can be a bumpy road. It’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco.

Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Anger (Black), Disgust (Kaling) and Sadness (Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Inside Out opens in theaters on June 19, 2015.
