    In this new age of diversity in comics, we’re seeing a lot of new writers and artists emerge on the scene with exciting new projects featuring all different sorts of heroes starring in their own books.

    In 1985 DC Entertainment first changed everything by using the ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ event to reboot their franchises and now it looks like they are doing it once again. While not everyone was a fan of ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ and the later ‘Infinite Crisis,’ it is one of the better ways that allowed […]

    Announced as part of Sony’s expanded ‘Spider-Man’ universe, ‘Venom‘ starring the alien symbiote villain/anti-hero is slated to be written and directed by Alex Kurtzman, who co-wrote ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2.’  But will the villain live up to the darkness that defines the character in comics? In the comics, the darkness of the character has fluctuated, […]

    When you mention Batman to a comic book fan, a number of creators probably come to mind immediately. Off the top of my head, I’m thinking of Bob Kane, Bill Finger, Frank Miller, Paul Dini, Grant Morrison, Alan Moore, and Bruce Timm. However, if you ask a modern Batman fan about which writers and artists […]

  • ‘The Walking Dead’ Executive Producer David Alpert Can’t Wait To Use This Villain On The Show

    By now we’ve all figured out that ‘The Walking Dead‘ comic book is just the “inspiration” for the TV show and that the show is not a direct adaptation.  Some characters come in sooner on the show than they did in the comics, while some come in later.  Likewise, some characters die sooner, others later.  […]

    The summer of 2014 was jammed with massively successful super hero movies, kicking off with Marvel’s hugely successful ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, followed by Fox’s long-awaited ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, which many hailed as the best X-Film yet.  Of course, the kicker was another Marvel film, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ which wound up […]

  • DC Plans On Making Its Own ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’? Long Live The Legion

    I doubt anyone could have predicted that Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, directed by James Gunn, would become the highest-grossing movie of the year so far.  Sure movie-goers have embraced super hero movies, but ‘Guardians’ is based on a comic that is fairly obscure even among comic readers.  Even so, it smashed expectations, proving that […]

    The above image of part of the Batmobile was the first glimpse fans had from the in-production Zack Snyder-directed ‘Batman V.

    Fans have been torn in their reaction to DC’s New 52 relaunch, which threw out all of the publisher’s history and rebooted it from scratch.  Unfortunately, this caused some continuity glitches.  One huge problem has been the history of the Teen Titans.  In the beginning it was flat out stated that there had been previous […]

    On the tails of a disappointing $35 million dollar intake from theaters for a movie that cost about $50 million to make, ‘Dredd’ fans had little hope of seeing a sequel featuring their stoic hero. However, as is often the case nowadays, massive DVD sales and a huge word of mouth campaign, combined with a […]

    With so many comic book live adaptations hitting us, from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘ on the big screen and ‘Arrow‘, ‘The Flash‘, ‘Gotham‘ and ‘Constantine’ on the small screen, I thought it would be fun to look back on some projects that never took […]

    Most of the attention on ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ has centered on Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), but let’s not forget another big name Avenger is also joining the fold, as Paul Betanny is being added to the roster as classic android hero The Vision.

    Moving on from ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #24 we had learned quite a bit about what Professor Charles Xavier had been up to in his spare time but nothing could compare our mutants for what they learn this issue. With the third installment of ‘The Last Will and Testament of Charles Xavier,’ Brian Michael Bendis gives us […]
