X-Men news and more from Wizard World Chicago!!!


With all the hoopla over the unveiling of Venom at the recent Spider-Man 3 panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Thomas Haden Church's Sandman was a bit overshadowed.

Rest assured, he's a major part of the film, and despite Church's humorous sensibilities, not a comedic interlude for the Venom moments.

The Continuum spent a few minutes with Chruch before the Spider-Man 3 panel at Comic-Con, where he talked about the emotional beats and working with director Sam Raimi, who gave him a very special gift.

Spike TV has released 10 images from "Sacrifice," the Wednesday, August 8 episode of Blade: The Series.

Here's how Spike describes the episode:

"While investigating the virus that had been implanted in Vanessa, Blade learns about the murder of Flannigan, a cop who helped care for him when he was a child. In a flashback. Blade's back story reveals that the former Eric Brooks ended up in the hands of Whistler when his father, and a kind nurse named Viola, were no longer able to control Eric's need to feed. Krista takes drastic measures to save her mother. Marcus sends Chase to Vegas on a business errand. When someone from Blade's childhood is murdered, Blade has to stop the assailant before he can harm Viola."

Richard Roundtree guest-stars as Blade's father.

The episode was written by Chris Ruppenthal and directed by David Straithorn.

Arcana Studio has announced an October launch for OutlawScorn: 3030AD, a new ongoing series from by Adam Frizzell, Nick Schley and Dash Martin.

Here's how the book is described:

"Imagine if mankind went from the most dominant species on earth to a dwindling mass of dumbfounded homosapiens. Imagine if each nook, cranny, and every stone unturned gave birth to a new mutant race. Now imagine no longer. Welcome to the world of OutlawScorn: 3030AD.

"The series surrounds Scorn, a young girl, with a fearsome moniker, who is maturing in a world where humanity is the minority and mutant creatures rule a post apocalyptic earth. In an attempt to free her family from an enslavement camp, Scorn accidentally sparks a revolt that quickly escalates into all out war.

"With local Praetorians firmly on her trail, Scorn now finds her way through this splintered thread of a former earth as kinships grow and teach her the understanding of strife and what plagued species in centuries past. With friendly faces few and far between, Scorn finds help in the arms of this imperfect tomorrow's underworld.

"While humans become thralls to animalistic whims, a third party joins the battle. Could this spell the eradication of both man and beast alike?"
