Hello and welcome to 2016! We here at ComicUI are excited to start a new year with a new design and approach to news stories.
To kick it off, we’ll be talking about upcoming superhero, comic book, and other movies we want to see this year in release order. Since January is such a cold, dry, bland month, we’re hoping to get your hype fire started now and burn it bright throughout the coming months! You can listen to a similar list on the latest Superhero Slate podcast, also done by myself.
Are you ready? If we forgot any, leave a comment or email us!
