Samuel L. Jackson and with his “Afro Samurai” partner-in-crime Eric Calderon, with artist Jeremy Rock come together again for a new series by Boom Studios titled Cold Space. The series finds an outlaw named Mulberry—“played by” Samuel L. Jackson—stranded on a planet torn by civil war. But rather than pick sides, Mulberry looks to turn the situation to his advantage and profits from the chaos. Mulberry is just a runaway criminal who doesn’t feel like getting taken in by the Galactic police and wants to keep making a buck so he can have some fun and have some cool stuff. When he crash lands on a ghetto space mining moon, he finds that the one small town that exists has two warring entrepreneurs and a third freelance scavenger gang on motorcycle. So, you can already imagine the pinball machine of this set-up making noise when a new hotshot comes into town. Vinnie Jones and Howard Chaykin and other celebrities are taking to writing comics more and more. We discuss is it a genuine interest or are the just creating roles for themselves. we take a look at some of the upcoming comics a few celebrities are putting out.

Spider-Man 4 was set to be released worldwide on May 6, 2011, but Sony announced plans to reboot the series after Raimi and Maguire left over script disputes. In 2007, Raimi expressed interest in portraying the transformation of Dr. Curt Connors into his villainous alter-ego, the Lizard; the character's actor Dylan Baker and producer Grant Curtis have also been enthusiastic about the idea. It was reported in December 2009 that John Malkovich was in negotiations to play Vulture, and that Anne Hathaway would play Felicia Hardy, though she would not have transformed into the Black Cat, as in the comics. Instead, Raimi's Felicia was expected to become a brand-new superpowered figure called the Vulturess. Sony Pictures announced in January 2010 that plans for Spider-Man 4 had been cancelled due to Raimi's withdrawal from the project. Raimi reportedly ended his participation due to doubt that he could meet the planned May 2011 release date while upholding the film creatively. We take a look at the Spider-Man reboot. Is it valid and maybe the companies need to put aside their differences and just hugs all around and with the trend of restarting a comic after ending it only to ghost number it so that it reaches a milestone issue number 200, 600, 500 for example...and a special guest appearance by Onyx.
