Sunday Catch-Up – October 1

Let’s finish off the weekend with a look at the week that was and the things that are happening in the Geekery world.

Well, September is over, and we all should know what that means.

Huh. There’s a video… I’ve never seen that before. Moving on…

Dark Horse Comics and Nintendo are teaming up for The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia, the third prestige volume based on the game. The 300-plus page hardcover will give an in-depth look at Hyrule and all of its characters. The volume will be released in April 2018.

• Sticking with Dark Horse, the publisher announced that once the American Gods: Shadows miniseries ends, the story will pick up with the second of three nine-issue stories based on the Neil Gaiman novel, American Gods: My Ainsel. The new series will debut with in March 2018. You can read my review of the first issue of the SHADOWS miniseries right here.

• Several outlets are reporting that Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong’o may be joining up with Elizabeth Banks’ new Charlie’s Angels reboot. And that’s a pretty weird combo right there… Also, why do we need a new Charlie’s Angel movie?

This Week at the Geekery

• The RETRO MOVIE NERD is back with a look at Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

• This week’s SONG OF THE WEEK features “Heavenward” by Wolf Alice.

Comics reviews this week are pretty Bat-Centric, with looks at Batman: The Murder Machine and a second edition of SUBWAY SHORTS reviews last week’s issue of Batman (with a side helping of Superman).
