Not many people in Australia will know that Luc Besson's lavish new sci-fi epic, Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets, is actually yet another movie adaptation of a hit comic book? This is mainly because Valerian the comic was never a hit in Australia, although it's been one of Europe's best-loved sci-fi series for nearly 50 years.

It's been over a year since we learned the long-awaited adaptation of Bryan K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's beloved Vertigo comic series Y: The Last Man was really happening.

The first trailer for Logan dropped this morning, giving us confirmation of the long-standing rumour that comic book hero Laura Kinney — a.k.a. X-23 — will be in the movie.

While certain things from the original comic book event that inspired Captain America: Civil War made it into the movie, one major piece didn't: The comic's infamous final twist in the battle between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. But according to the people behind the film, it was never even considered for the movie.
When Farah, star of the webcomic Shattered Starlight, was younger, she was able to deal with her problems by hitting them with her magical hockey stick. That's because she was a magical girl, a defender of Montreal. But now that she's older, she has to deal with crappy jobs and crappier bosses. And that might be the worst of her problems.
