The Avatar’s Family Dynamic Is Explored In ‘Legend Of Korra: Book 2′ Bonus Feature [Video]

If you're a fan of Avatar: The Legend of Korra, then you're probably having a pretty good week. Not only did Book 3 start up this weekend with the promise of Korra re-founding the Air Nation and going up against a team of super-powered crooks bent on destruction -- including an Water Bender who uses tendrils of water and ice in place of her missing arms, which is awesome -- but today marks the release of Book 2 on home video, for anyone who needs to catch up.

As you might expect, the Blu-Ray/DVD has more to offer than just the episodes of the show. There's a whole list of special features, including one where show creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko discuss the family dynamic that influenced the second season.

Here’s The Thing Episode 12: Angel Punisher vs. FrankenCastle

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.

On this week's show, Chris revisits a previous episode to examine why FrankenCastle, the story where the Punisher became a grumpy Frankenstein monster with a giant metal arm, works much better than Angel Punisher, the story where the Punisher became a grumpy angel with a coat full of heaven guns. Believe it or not, there is a difference.

Iron Man Vs. Goths: ‘Power Rangers’ Producer Creates New Series ‘GUNBLADE’ [Video]

If you've been a child at any time in the past 20 years, there's a good chance that you're already familiar with the work of Koichi Sakamoto, whether you know his name or not. Since 1996, he's been a producer and director on the Power Rangers franchise -- along with working on the stunts for its Japanese tokusatsu source material -- and now, he's getting ready to launch a new show, set to debut in America in January of 2016.

It's called Gunblade, and it's basically Iron Man meets Kamen Rider with a budget of $20,000,000, a significant portion of which will likely be spent on guns and/or blades. And it looks pretty awesome.

The X-Men Episode Guide 4×03: ‘Courage’

The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series.

This week, Morph returns yet again, and this time manage to last almost 20 minutes!

Tomer Hanuka’s Movie Posters Are Thrills And Chills Unto Themselves [Art]

It doesn't come up too often around here since we tend to focus on sequential art, but I love movie posters. Love 'em. As long as there's not five lines of sans-serif text superimposed over someone's face, or some weird CGI animal and/or former SNL cast member making a weird smirk, I could look at those things all day -- and the best often come from artists inspired by their favorite movies to create striking images, whether it's for the Alamo Drafthouse or just for fun.

Case in point, artist Tomer Hanuka, whose portfolio includes incredible posters for Rambo, Psycho, 300 and more. Check out the best, along with Hankua's also-rad book covers, below!

Scott Snyder On ‘Batman: Zero Year – Dark City’: The ComicsAlliance Interview, Part One

In the pages of Batman, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Danny Miki and FCO Plascencia are retelling the origin of Batman for the modern DC Universe with "Zero Year." Told over the course of a year, "Zero Year" is divided in to three arcs, each representing a facet of Gotham City and Batman's growth into a superhero, and it's been wild right from the start. For each arc, ComicsAlliance is going in-depth with Snyder to find out more about how the story came together and what these elements mean, and with "Dark City" finishing just a few weeks ago, it's time once again for our conversation to resume.

Today, in the first part of our interview, Snyder discusses the return of Dr. Death, why he wanted to pay homage to Frank Miller's Year One and Dark Knight Returns while at the same time breaking away from them as much as possible, and why "Dark City" was the most challenging part of the story to write.

Barry Blankenship’s Posters Are Bright, Poppy And Awesome

I've been thinking a lot about picking up some new art lately to decorate these old walls. I mean, don't worry, that framed theatrical poster for The Goonies ain't going nowhere, but I've had it for years and it's getting a little stale. Perhaps the Gooies r only Good Enuf.

Either way, I'm seriously considering decking out every flat surface in this place with the art of Barry Blankenship. His work is beautifully bright, fantastically clever, focused on detailed, poppy representations of stuff like Monster Squad, Scott Pilgrim and, of course, the Batman, and that means it's right up my alley. Check out a few of my favorites from his gallery below!

Darren Rawlings Imagines Pop Culture’s Most Famous Vehicles As Transformers

If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for a while, you may already know that I'm not really a big fan of the Transformers. It's nothing specific against them, you understand, they just never clicked with me. I think part of the problem is that, as with so many things,they're just not Batman.

Fortunately, that is a problem that has now been solved. In a series of pretty fantastic pieces of art, Darren Rawlings has taken some of our favorite vehicles from comics, movies and TV, from the Batmobile to the ECTO-1 to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Party Wagon, and imagined what they'd be like if they were Transformers. It's a pretty simple pop culture mashup, but it's also really awesome. Check out the best below!

The Tokyo Police Department Teams With ‘Patlabor’ For A Recruitment Drive, Will Probably Not Let You Actually Have A Mecha

For those of you planning on permanently relocating to Japan to take advantage of their readily available Kamen Rider churros and Attack on Titan deca-decker cheeseburgers, we have some good news on the job front! It seems that the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department is in need of some stalwart crimefighters to hit the streets, and to get the word out about their latest recr

uitment drive, they're teaming up with the producers of the upcoming The Next Generation -Patlabor- movie.

I can't read Japanese, but I can only assume this poster means that they're recruiting for the division of the police that cruise around in giant robots battling giant robot crime. If that is, in fact, the case, I doubt they'll have any trouble meeting their recruitment quota.
