If you want to get a taste of what the book is like, here's a taste of the humor from an interview the 'author' did with USA Today.
Q: You dedicated the handbook to Doctor Doom. Did this cause friction between you and your peers such as Cobra Commander and the Red Skull? A: We run in different circles. Let's leave it at that. Cobra Commander knows what he did.
Q: Why is "Mwa-ha-ha" preferable to "Bwa-ha-ha" in terms of maniacal laughter? A: Etymologists unanimously agree that the letter "M" is simply more terrifying than "B," in laughter situations. They told me so that time I held an etymologist conference hostage and asked them dozens of times until they got it right.
Q: Trying to take over the world must burn much of your free time. How do you find time to date, and is fostering a lovelife hard out there for your malevolent ilk? A: I assume once I have control of every world government and wield limitless power over all humanity, Henrietta will finally call again — I mean, the romance question will settle itself.
The book is available now from Skyhorse Publishing.
Daily Mail confirms that Jack O'Connell will be replacing Jamie Blackley as Calisto in 300: Battle for Artemisia, who is inspired by his father to lead a band of soldiers to war.
The actor will be joining Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton, and Rodrigo Santoro in the film, to be directed by Noam Murro from a script by Kurt Johnstad. Green plays the title role of Artemisia while Stapleton has been cast in the lead role. Santoro will be reprising his role as Xerxes.
The movie, a follow-up to Zack Snyder's 300 (in turn based on Frank Miller's 1998 comic book miniseries), is expected to tell, in part, the story of Greek General Themistocles, who lead Athens against Persian invaders in a battle that played out simultaneously with the Battle of Thermopylae (depicted in the first film).
Greg Pak has chosen a different way to convinve you to get in on his newest comic X-treme X-Men, which hits local comic shops July 25th. Personally we think more series should make videos with the creator explaining the series, it makes the series sound more appealing. Anyway, enough from us, let Greg convince you to buy it.
Making a major appearance at next week's Comic-Con, "The Walking Dead" is set to return to AMC this fall for a third season of 16 episodes. Today, EW revealed the below banner, featuring new art of Rick and newcomers (but fan-favorites from the comic book series) Michonne and the Governor.
Check out the image below and check back for updates throughout the con.
Fans of Spider-Man will no doubt see the parrallels between this and the ever popular Maximum Carnage series from the '90s. No official word on what it means, but Marvel will announce it at the "Amazing Spider-Man" panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Our guess is that it will be a follow-up to this year's Carnage U.S.A. mini series, and will involve Carnage, Venom, and the Scarlet Spider.
Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new IMAX spot for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and the studio has provided us with the full gallery for the anticipated film that you can check out by clicking here!
In the July 20 release, it has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman star.

Comic-Con kicks off on Wednesday, July 11, and writers from around the web have been quietly preparing for four and a half days of absolute insanity as they try to make sure that we can bring our readers as much as humanly possible. A small group of them have shared what they're most looking forward to seeing and doing.
If you're one of the lucky 120,000+ able to attend this year's Comic-Con, this should give you some idea of what a good cross-section of the writers at various movie sites are looking forward to seeing/doing - you may notice quite a bit of repetition for a couple of movies that should end up being the biggest movies of summer 2013.
ComingSoon.net and SuperHeroHype's Edward Douglas is looking forward to the entire Warner Bros. panel, since we've seen absolutely nothing from Zack Snyder's Man of Steel and very little from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, two of what should be the coolest movies of next summer. Likewise, the Marvel panel is always hopping and even though they've only been shooting a few weeks on Iron Man 3, they rarely disappoint and I expect them to show some cool stuff from the movie, much like they did with Captain America two years ago. Oh, and we'll finally get confirmation on that May 2014 movie so we can all stop guessing and making stuff up. Also looking forward to talking to lots of filmmakers/actors since interviewing is my schtick at Comic-Con.
Kristal Bailey returns to Comic-Con for the 7th time and couldn't be more excited! Each year provides new surprises, big news and this looks to be like no exception. She and Brian Rudloff, the amazing duo from Screen Invasion, are most looking forward to the "Community" panel and the rest of the TV slate coming to SD. With "The Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones," and "True Blood" all having major panels, geek TV is going strong. The movie front is shaping up nicely too, with highlights including Iron Man 3, Dredd, and Pacific Rim.
Katey Rich is the Editor-in-Chief of Cinema Blend, and she and her mighty team of five are excited to be covering Comic Con with more man (and woman) power than ever before. More than anything Katey is excited to catch the panel for Neill Blomkamp's Elysium, because it's something she knows the least about, and therefore has the most potential to be an awesome surprise.
Matt Goldberg is going to be at Comic-Con covering Hall H for Collider.com. "I'm jazzed to see 'Django Unchained' and 'Iron Man 3,' but not so much because of the footage since that will all be released in due time. I'm more excited to see Quentin Tarantino and Robert Downey Jr. since big personalities on the Hall H stage always makes for a good time," he says. He adds he's "also eager to see what surprises various presentations may have in store."
This year at SDCC, the ion team is excited to see that fantasy is pretty much ruling the con. With The Hobbit coming up, and "Game of Thrones" still going strong, there's no doubt that this is the year of foam swords and armor in San Diego. "We're psyched for the original science fiction too -- we'll be checking out Guillermo del Toro's giant monsters in 'Pacific Rim,' getting the latest on the superintelligent computer in 'Person of Interest,' and visiting a post-apocalyptic world with no computers at all with Eric Kripke's new series 'Revolution.'We'll be covering everything from comics and movies, to books and TV, so keep your eyes on io9 at SDCC 2012!"
Josh Wigler at MTV Movies Blog and Splash Page says: "TV once again rules the roost for me at Comic-Con. I'm dying to make it to the 'Fringe' panel, where we'll hopefully catch a glimpse of the Observer-studded final season. 'Game of Thrones,' too, is high on my list; any and all RW teases would make the trip to San Diego worthwhile for me. Honestly, I'm even excited for 'Walking Dead,' both the obstacle course (yes, there's an obstacle course!) and the panel, where we'll finally get a healthy look at Michonne, The Governor and the prison — three of the most beloved elements of the Robert Kirkman source material. And I'm really hoping to catch the 'Breaking Bad' panel. I've already seen the premiere, and if they show the cold open … holy wow, I want to be in that room while the audience freaks."
Matt Patches at Hollywood.com can't decide if he's more excited for Sony's Elysium panel or Nickelodeon's "The Legend of Korra" panel. He's been waiting patiently for any look at director Neill Blomkamp's long-awaited District 9 follow-up that's not bald Matt Damon standing around on set, and really, who doesn't want a taste of epic sci-fi at Comic-Con? But going cold turkey on "Legend of Korra" post-season one finale…well, the panel may be the fix he needs to survive.
Alex Billington also returns to cover Comic-Con 2012 at FirstShowing.net. Alex is looking forward to the panels on Saturday the most, specifically Warner Bros.' panel for The Hobbit and Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. There's also Quentin Tarantino bringing Django Unchained on Saturday, which should be very fun. He's mostly excited to see how the Hall H crowds react to these presentations, and hear the responses after.
This year, Film School Rejects will be hiding in the bathroom stalls so that they can be the first in Hall H to check out everything from Frankenweenie to the Batmobile. "We'll be ironically wearing Team Bella t-shirts (except for Brian) as we bring news from Jackie Chan's production company, 'ParaNorman,' Disney, 'Game of Thrones,' and the science fiction of 'Total Recall' and 'Looper.' While Fure rubs his own chest to the 'Expendables 2' footage (and reports back), Brian will be writing about his experiences as a first-timer, and we'll collectively make sure that you, dear reader, feel like you are at the Con yourself. Dressing up like your favorite comic book character is on you though. We can't be held responsible for clothing you."
Don Kaye, lead writer at MSN's Parallel Universe, is split between two things that he wants to see the most: "On the one hand, I am really looking forward to the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures panel, because I can't wait to get a first look at footage from Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' and Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel.' Both have been shrouded in mystery until now. We're apparently also going to get a peek at Legendary's take on 'Godzilla.' But at the same time, I am super-excited about seeing the Sony presentation on 'Elysium.' I loved 'District 9' and can't wait to see what Neill Blomkamp has done for his follow-up. If anyone can come up with the big sci-fi movie with big ideas (the one we didn't get this year), it might be him."
Jim Littler from ComicBookMovie.com had it easy when picking out his highlights, saying, "It’s a no-brainer what we'll be interested in seeing at Comic-Con this year… All the Comic Book Movie oriented panels--with a particular interest in Disney's/Marvel's 'Iron Man 3' and 'Thor 2' offerings, as well as 'Man of Steel'?!! Plus, a personal favorite is 'The Venture Brothers.'"
This year the gang at Movies.com is planning to load up their Comic-Con page with as many interviews, panel reports, footage reviews, podcasts, and, most importantly, costume galleries as biologically possible. It'll be like you're at comic-con, minus the huge crowds and Slave Leia dance contests.
Kevin Polowy, NextMovie and Film.com editor and resident DJ, is eager to trek to 2012 Comic-Con to see how Martin Freeman and friends measure up to Hobbits past (get it? Short joke), hear how many times Quentin Tarantino uses the word "awesome" over the course of the one-hour Django Unchained panel (over/under: 16), and once again gorge on those disgustingly delicious Mexican eggrolls at that one place on 1st Ave (Mexican eggrolls!).
Rob Keyes from Screen Rant is anxious to see the year's two biggest panels happening on Saturday in Hall H where we all hope to get our first real look at Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim and Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Those two films combined with The Hobbit and a potential presentation about Godzilla make that the panel to be at. On the Disney/Marvel side, the Iron Man 3 presentation also has a chance to steal the show if President Kevin Feige comes prepared to lay down major announcements regarding "Phase 2" of the Marvel cinematic universe. Bring us some Ant-Man, Black Panther and Guardians of the Galaxy!
The ScreenCrush.com team is excited to see footage from Man of Steel and for sure, "but the one panel we won't miss is for 'Django Unchained.' Watching Quentin Tarantino work the Hall H crowd will be worth the price of admission alone! And maybe he'll bring some special guests along with him..."
Announced last month, the complete adventures of Indiana Jones are headed to Blu-ray for the first time on September 18th and to promote the release, Lucasfilm has revealed that they're bringing Raiders of the Lost Ark's Well of Souls to Comic-Con.

After a different version appeared online yesterday, Lionsgate has now released the official new banner for The Expendables 2 which you can check out below.
Opening on August 17, the Simon West-directed action film stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Kevin Durand (Real Steel, I Am Number Four) and Robert Maillet (Sherlock Holmes, Immortals) have joined the cast of The Mortal Instruments, Variety reports. They'll star opposite Lily Collins, Jaime Campbell Bower and Jemima West in the Constantin Film and Unique Features production.
Based on the first book in the popular literary series, "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," the film is set in contemporary New York City. There, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray, discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother, Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures.
Durand and Maillet are set to play the villainous Pangborn and Blackwell.
Principal photography is expected to begin August 15 in Toronto with Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid) directing from a screenplay by Jessica Postigo and I. Marlene King. Robert Kulzer is producing for Constantin Film and Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne are producing for Unique Features. Martin Moszkowicz, Constantin Film’s head of Film & TV, is executive producing.
