Fantastic Four #74-Great cosmic art by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott. This amazing cover shows the world-eater, Galactus, looking on as his former herald, The Silver Surfer, in the space above Earth attempt to intercept and the original Punisher (the green guy). This Punisher first appeared as Galactus’s robotic bruiser in Fantastic Four #49, where he battled against the First Family of Marvel. Punisher’s second appearance came in Fantastic Four #74, in 1968, where he (it?) battles the Silver Surfer.
Notice that the FF are not on the cover of their own book? Lots of Kirby Krackle in the empty spaces too.

Any fan of Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl television show probably knows that she can sing! As a former cast member of Glee, she clearly has the pipes to be called a professional singer, and, of course, a kick-ass Kryptonian actress.
When Benoist is not singing duets with Grant Gustin of The Flash, she can be found singing for…Minecraft…?
“Recently Benoist was tapped to help promote the upcoming MineCon, the annual Minecraft convention hosted by developers Mojang. In the video, the actress sings and moves through the digital game world as it showcases an upcoming graphics update.“
“For those who aren’t familiar with Minecraft, it’s basically a sandbox game that allows players to build just about anything using a variety of cubes. From there you can explore the world, gather resources, craft objects and battle other players.“
This is, of course, cool, just as long as Melissa Benoist remembers to put the cape back on and fight bad guys in National City.
Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers, Daredevil, X-Men, among many others), is moving from Marvel Comics to DC Comics. This is really big news, not just for the comics side of those companies, but also for their cinematic universes. With many long-time DC fans unhappy with a lot of the recent DC movies (Wonder Woman being a significant exception), Bendis joining DC could be the genesis of some common sense when it comes to writing and exploring the DC characters on film.
