Another comic book legend will soon appear on the small screen with the NBC series starring the once-con-man-now-detective character, John Constantine. Matt Ryan, known by Doctor Who fans in BBC’s “Torchwood” for his works in Showtime’s “The Tudors”, was recently released as the DC Comics‘ character John Constantine in new character photo below.

Hopefully not many readers will think of that Keanu Reeves 2005 flop Constantine, but rather the cunningly snarky antihero first introduced in the 1985 series the “Swamp Thing”.  From 1988 to 2013, Constantine made his way as a lead character in “Hellblazer” and finally his own character series “Constantine,” where he fights to protect Earth against dark forces.

Django Unchained is the newest movie from acclaimed director Quentin Tarantino, arriving in theaters Christmas day. It’s a western set in the deep south before the civil war, starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson, among others. Apparently the movie will now be receiving the comic book treatment, with “Django Unchained” #1 set to launch on December 5th, the first of a five part series. Said Tarantino: “The comic will literally be that very first draft of the script. All that material that didn’t make the movie, all of that will be part of the piece. And I’m really excited about it.” Art for the series will be done by R.M. Guera, and the books will be published by DC comics.  Here’s the trailer for the movie; click below to see the first and third covers of the series by Jim Lee and Massimo Carnavale, respectively.

You will probably hear Jon and I mention ‘The New 52‘ and many of our reviews/discussions will be talking about New 52 series.  I figured it would be a good idea to brief you on what the New 52 actually is.

To start off G&C’s spectacular debut, I figured I would divulge my comic book pull list to the world. Currently, there are 11 DC titles and 1 Image title. I have sampled titles from other companies several times (the Incredible Hulk, Astonishing X-Men, Supurbia, etc) but nothing else has really stuck.
