The 90s were a cesspool for the comics world. If you were around back then, and by “around” I mean reading and purchasing comics, you already remember it as such—if you have any sort of discerning taste at all, that is. If your taste is lousy you probably recall the decade as a golden era.… Continue reading Death of Superman, Part Two?
Amid reports that extensive reshoots of the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE movie had resulted in Zack Snyder’s film essentially being remade before it was ever released comes news that Snyder is stepping away from the project altogether. Snyder’s daughter, we have learned, committed suicide in March, and Snyder has stated that he and his family need… Continue reading Snyder steps down, Whedon steps in
It’s the most controversial comic book story to come down the pike (as opposed to the “pipe,” which I often see used in its place; this latter is incorrect; in the 19th Century, a “pike” was a road, hence the expression; Sorry. Self-admitted grammar nazi, here) in years. It raised hackles as soon as the… Continue reading SECRET EMPIRE So Far
This will be more of a commentary than a review. It’s not like, any of you, really need a review, anyway, right? I’m fairly certain 95% of the people who are going to see this movie, which equates to 95% of EVERYbody—excluding, possibly, those weirdoes who only like chick flicks, My Little Pony, and Woody… Continue reading Review: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

You are encouraging the company to keep pulling just such stunts as this. Publicity generates revenue, and it all comes down to sales. Your… Continue reading Marvel hears you, Fanboys!
It was easy to predict. As reported a couple of weeks back, news that Marvel’s sales were down, and that this slump was being blamed on, in part, Marvel’s forced diversity, its habit of removing prominent characters from circulation and replacing them with minorities and female characters just for the sake of having more female… Continue reading Marvel’s Return to Form
If you’re going to pull a tacky stunt and hide hate speech in the panels of the comic book you’re drawing, be man enough to admit to it when you get pinched. Don’t try to make the world feel sorry for you by claiming you were motivated by “love.” That is a classic sociopath behavior… Continue reading Bigot Busted
Continuing the conversation from last week: So people are “incensed” that Marvel blamed “diversity” for its current sales slump? Too bad! Marvel is right, so the PC crybabies need to deal with it. While I don’t think anyone with a brain is going to argue that this is only one factor among several, and no… Continue reading Hatin’ on Marvel
