We've all watched a movie where a character gets hurt and thought "They'd never survive that in real life." Well, a new book will put that to the test with some super gruesome and awesome drawings.

Welcome back to Toy Aisle, ours weekly roundup of the coolest collectibles around. This week: Star Wars! Sure we just got a whole bunch of them last Friday, but somehow the world managed to make space for even more Star Wars toys. Can you believe it? But there's more than the galaxy far, far away to tempt your wallet this week.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our weekly round up of the coolest toys and merchandise floating around the internet. This week, we've got a festive Lego set, an obscenely over-the-top Nerf cannon, and yes, a Joker figure just resplendent with different emotions. Take a look, and prepare to hide your wallet somewhere safe.
Comic books can seem intimidating. If you go into a comic book store, you’re confronted with walls and walls of paper and no road map that tells you where to start. If you’ve never read a comic before and want to dip your toe in the ink-filled waters, here’s a few recommendations that blend excellent storytelling and incredible illustration.
Though Warner Brothers and DC were slow to begin building their own shared cinematic universe in a fashion similar to Marvel's, there was no reason to believe that they wouldn't be able to pull it off successfully in their own time. Looking at the current state of things, though, that's becoming increasingly difficult to believe.
It's been a hell of a week for the DC movieverse, with the news that Warner Bros is also launching a banner for DC movies that are not part of the continuity of the DC Extended Universe. That news collided with a rumour about the future of The Batman yesterday, but director Matt Reeves has stepped in to clear the air.
Thought yesterday's Joker-centric movie news was a huge surprise? Today's newest development makes that look ho-hum: Warner Bros. is reportedly developing a Joker and Harley Quinn film, with Jared Leto and Margot Robbie coming back as Mr J and Dr Quinzel.
Twenty-five years after her debut on Batman: The Animated Series, Harleen Quinzel's gone through a lot of changes. Harley's various iterations have offered up different proportions of wackiness, tragedy and, uh, randiness. The one coming to Batman: The Enemy Within looks like she doesn't take any guff. From anyone.
At last, the Joker is getting his own movie. It will star a yet-to-be-cast actor, good news for anyone who was turned off by Jared Leto's interpretation of the character in Suicide Squad. And it will be an origin story that pays stylistic homage to 1980s Martin Scorsese films — with the legendary director himself producing.
There are plenty of things to be annoyed with about Batman and Harley Quinn. It looks cheap, it cuts more corners than it should, and it feels much more like an average TV episode than an actual movie. But the biggest problem is how much it cheapens Harley Quinn, turning a beloved character into an "Idiot Meat Skank". And those are the movie's words, not mine.
Telltale Games' ongoing creation of its own unique Dark Knight continuity — which began with last year's Batman: The Telltale Series — has been fascinating to play through. The changes made to the people in Bruce Wayne's double life have been surprisingly dramatic and the best one may be yet to come.
In just a few weeks, "Force Friday II" begins — which means the first wave of toys based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi will hit shelves. Inevitably, that means people will start ruthlessly inspecting every toy they can find, hoping to decode clues about Episode VIII. But as you'll see, movie merch is rarely a reliable source of secret movie spoilers.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our weekly recap of the most delightful toys we've seen on the web. This week, a Grand Moff Tarkin figure that could give the Rogue One recreation a run for its money, some very cool (and very weird) robot monkeys, and even more Bat-mania with a slick new ride for the Dark Knight.
