Remember the 90’s? If so, if you’re a comics fan, I’m sorry. I sympathize. It was a bleak, depressing time, a time perfectly defined and symbolized by Image Comics. Not the Image that’s still around today. Back then the company was a different sort of animal. Basically what happened, for you Millennials who missed it,… Continue reading Neal Adams takes on the Man of Steel
I am major stoked over this one. CIVIL WAR remains one of my favorite comics epics of recent years, and this follow-up seems poised to be just as awesome and just as important. The original story really changed comic books, the way that Alan Moore’s WATCHMEN changed comics two decades before it. It forced us… Continue reading CIVIL WAR II
The writer of this linked article, Donna Dickens, wins today’s S.T.F.U. award. Get your britches out of a twist, woman. Your argument is silly. Taking Marvel Studios to task for “whitewashing?” Suggesting that it is perfectly acceptable for Marvel to cast black actors, or Asians, or whatever, in roles of characters that are established as… Continue reading The PC Police and that “Racist” Dr. Strange – Enough, Already!

I remember a few years back, when Grant Morrison (the most overrated writer in the comics medium, in my opinion) “killed off” Batman by having Bruce Wayne sent back in time, wherein he had to fight his way back to the future. (It is worth noting that Marvel had done… Continue reading Batman Returns. Again. And so does the Joker.
I’ve been saying this for a while now, to pretty much anybody that will listen, but I have some serious doubts that the new BVS movie, unlike Superman, is going to be able to fly. I’m actually expecting a crash and burn. Not that I WANT a crash and burn; I WANT it to be… Continue reading Batman vs. Superman: I hope I’m wrong
If I’m right in my belief that a complete reboot is coming, not only for Superman but for DC Comics in its totality, in the wake of the failed reboot that was the New 52—wait, if we’re rebooting a reboot, does that count as another reboot, or wouldn’t we be in fact retro-booting?—then the various… Continue reading Alas, Jimmy, we hardly knew you!
