You’ve seen a superhero team-up before, but never like this! We saved an aisle seat for you alongside your favorite comic book heroes as they sit down for a day at the movies on Geek #4′s double cover, with original artwork by Andrew Robinson. Inside, you’ll find a discussion with the men that make the comics and superhero movies you love, the first in a series of Geek Summits we’ll be featuring in upcoming issues. They discuss what makes a great superhero movie along all of the traps that studios and writers can get caught up in when adapting a beloved comic for the big screen.

But it’s not all about superheroes! We’ve got a massive story on the ultimate 12 inch action figure collection, an interview with Sarah Silverman, a Middle-Earth Cheat Sheet to prep you for the upcoming Hobbit movie, and a peek behind the doors of SuperBot Entertainment, the crew behind Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. And we’ve got all of our usual departments, with the latest in gaming, comics, technology, music, anime, television, gadgetry, and more!
