Andromeda“Andromeda’s War (Legion of the Damned)” by William C. Dietz

Now a platoon leader, Legionnaire Andromeda McKee seems to have successfully left behind her true identity of Lady Catherine ‘Cat’ Carletto, one of the last two surviving members of the Carletto family targeted for death by Empress Ophelia.

After failing at her one shot at vengeance, Andromeda had been questioning her own resolve. But now her uncle has been killed in a government raid back on Earth, leaving her as the last Carletto standing — and the family’s only chance for justice…

A chance that comes when the empress’s ship crashes on a hostile planet and Andromeda is assigned to head up the rescue mission. As a legionnaire, Andromeda McKee has countless kills under her belt. But when faced with her greatest enemy, it will be Cat Carletto who has to pull the trigger on the one who really matters…



Star Wars: The Force Awakens Fan Art Is Already Here, And It’s Pretty Stellar

If there’s one thing that was as much a sure thing as the Star Wars: The Force Awakens breaking the internet yesterday, it’s that there would be fans riffing on it within minutes of it hitting the interwebs. Star Wars is one of those massive pop culture phenomenons that seems to inspire endless creativity in those who love it, with the results ranging from fan films to cosplay to, well, just about anything you can think of. One of the first waves of creativity birthed by the Force Awakens trailer is an array of excellent artwork, much of it in the form of poster art that’s as good as anything Hollywood puts out. I know I’d clear a space on my wall for this one, which was created by Legion of Potatoes on Tumblr. Because there’s no way one single potato could create something this epic.

Children Of The Machine Sci-Fi Series Coming To…BitTorrent?

Ever since networks like HBO, AMC, and FX became serious power players on the TV landscape, it seems like every other network on the planet is getting into the game of original scripted programming. Then Netflix and Amazon stepped into the fray, opening the door for things like Yahoo’s acquisition of Community. Well, at the rate things are going I’m just waiting for the day Home Depot announces their first original series, or maybe Charmin. We’re not quite that far down the rabbit hole, but we have reached the point where file-sharing platform BitTorrent is releasing a new science fiction series called Children of the Machine. Here’s the first poster.

The Walking Dead Goes Retro In These Amazing Posters

the walking deadWe’re closer than ever to getting our peepers on the presumably death-filled madness that’s coming with the midseason finale of The Walking Dead, but it’s time for a look back, rather than a look forward. (No, we’re not talking about prequels.) You guys know how much we love when things go retro, so there’s no denying our eye-lust for the throwback Walking Dead posters seen below. My love for fan art sometimes rivals my hatred for fan art not always being immediately available for purchase.

Created by EW‘s Darren Franich and Jef Castro, these Season 5 “Im-Posters” present a stylish take on each of the seven episodes that have already aired this season. (It feels like so many more than that.) Check out my favorite of the pack below, which rips on Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte in 48 Hours.

So They Made A Bill The Galactic Hero Movie, And Here’s Your First Look At It

Harry Harrison’s Bill the Galactic Hero is one of the most treasured relics from my youth. I discovered Harrison’s wacky world of satire and surreality during my junior high years, and I read — and re-read — each of the Bill books a dozen times during my teenage years. Well, now somebody has made a Bill the Galactic Hero movie, and we’ve got the first trailer for it below. It’s…not what I was expecting.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Silliness Includes Legos And How It Should Have Ended

Given that Guardians of the Galaxy is both a massive hit ($770 million worldwide so far) and one of the most entertaining flicks we saw all year, it’s no surprise that people are still talking about it, referencing it, and riffing on it. Frankly, if we posted every cool Guardians-related tidbit, we wouldn’t have time to post anything else. Still, we’ve got a bit of coolness stored up for you today, beginning with this exploration of how Guardians of the Galaxy should have ended (times three!). It dares to ask the question: does Thanos ever get up out of that fucking chair?
