    I suppose there’s nothing like the competition showing you up to light a fire under one’s ass.  No, Wonder Woman, the biggest female name in comics doesn’t have a movie yet, but by gosh Rocket Raccoon is headed to every multiplex in the country in a couple of months and heck, even Batroc Ze Leaper […]

    Warner Brothers producer/director/writer James Tucker has been working on various animated projects over the years, with a heavy focus on the studio’s DC properties, including its direct-to-DVD movies.  With Cartoon Network seemingly abandoning ‘Beware The Batman’ and not announcing a new DC show to replace it, this may be the only source for comic fans […]

    This year, Marvel Comics celebrates their 75th anniversary. While they have a number of things happening to commemorate the occasion throughout the years, one thing that we definitely expected was some sort of special comic book. After all, that’s what they’ve been doing for decades, so why stop now? And though they’re only turning 75, […]

    Old school gamers may remember that once upon a time Atari had licensed the rights to create a video game of ‘E.T.’. An urban myth told us that it flopped so badly that the company ended up burying thousands of the carts in the desert as a way to dispose of them. Guess what! That […]

  • Marvel Comics Announces ‘Death of Wolverine’ Mini-Series

    by

    Back in early 2013, word got out from the Marvel Creative Summit that Wolverine would be killed off in 2014. Many thought that it would come in the wake of ‘Age of Ultron’, but then it was announced at last year’s C2E2 that the prominent X-Man and Avenger would lose his healing factor in the […]

    Four months ago, Dennis Hopeless’ ‘Avengers Arena’, one of the most controversial comics in recent history, came to an end. However, the story of the young heroes abducted by Arcade and forced into a sick game of survival would continues in ‘Avengers Undercover’, the sequel series that picks up three month after Chase, Nico, Deathlocket, […]

    Early this year, Marvel announced that a murder mystery of cosmic proportions would be coming to the pages of their comic books.

    I have been incredibly critical of this series from the start, but I feel like my criticisms have been legitimate. For a book to be called ‘What If? Age of Ultron’, you’d expect Ultron to play a part in it, right? Well, we haven’t seen the maniacal machine since the first issue (unless you count […]

    And so it ends, the most sprawling storyline from ‘The Walking Dead’ comic series so far, “All Out War”, which finally had Rick’s group from Alexandria, teaming up with Hilltop and The Kingdom in an effort to take down Negan and his Saviors.  So how did it turn out?  To be honest, it was a […]

    by

    I realize the expression ‘Secret Origins’ has a long and proud history with DC Comics, but here it’s a complete misnomer.  Considering that the New 52 for the most part kicked off “five years later”, the idea of revisiting some character’s beginnings might help differentiate them from prior interpretations, but in this first issue, we […]
