OK, Let's Try This Again! The Comic Shoppe Returns With a Vengeance-Tues at 7pm ET-The Return of Capt. America, Wanted 2, More True Blood Talk & More!

The boys are back....and we are definitely prepped to discuss all things pulp! Join Daryll, Max and yours truly tomorrow at 7pm eastern to discuss the following: The New York Daily News reported that Captain America is slated to be the next hero returning from the grave; Hollywood is going back into the well of repetition by greenlighting Wanted 2 (with Angelina Jolie....didn't her character bite the bullet? Pun intended!); Smallville has been optioned up to season 10 but the CW has intimated that a spin-off could be considered-we will do our best to ponder the possibilities and lastly, a roundtable discussion pertaining to the upcoming Marvel project Superhero series, Marvel: Noir and our favorite graphic novel reads from last week. Feel free to call in with your comments/questions at 646-200-0104 or via IM/email-thecomicshoppe@yahoo.com.

For those in the know, The Stepfather was definitely one of those seminal 80s shlock horror films that spawned several sequels while attaining cult status over the years. I'm not sure if the reboot can top the classic due in part to Terry Quinn's ("John Locke" of Lost) sinister portrayal of the protagonist. But heck, since when does that stop the Hollywood machine? Take a look at '87 and '09 trailers and decide for yourselves....

And now the new "Coke" version:
