Men In Black 3 is one of those Summer movies I keep forgetting about. The long-delayed project has been talked about and scrapped so many times the idea of it actually being released seems like a foreign concept.

Good lord, I feel like this site is turning into a GI Joe fansite after all the news this week, but we’re gonna keep rocking and rolling anyway! The GI Joe Club has revealed yet another Iron Grenadier– the third trooper from the cancelled 5-pack Hasbro scrapped a few years ago… this completes the trifecta of Grenadier troopers who will be squaring off with the Oktober Guard in this year’s Convention exclusive 15-pack. But who will lead these Grenadiers into battle?

Valiant returned to the world of comics this month and really made a splash with their incredibly promising reboot of X-O Manowar. X-O is the first of four monthly books to debut, which will hopefully usher in a new era of character-driven stories, expansive continuities, and intersecting story arcs that we haven’t seen since… well, since Valiant went away.
There’s a few books coming out in the meantime, but the one I’m most excited for the Valiant’s August debut, which see Archer and Armstrong return to the comics rack. And now, Valiant has debuted the cover of Archer and Armstrong #1, along with some cool art previews… check them out!
