  • The Late Iain Banks Now Has An Asteroid Named After Him

    Posted Monday, July 8th, 2013 10:23 am GMT -4 by

    Science fiction fans were shocked in April, when Iain Banks announced that he had gallbladder cancer and was not likely to live past a year. He died on June 9th, 2013, but his memory will live on in his famous ’Culture’ series, and now, in an asteroid. This, of course, is altogether appropriate as the citizens [...]

Following the events of ‘Age of Ultron’ #10AI, the founding [...]

    Posted Sunday, July 7th, 2013 08:00 pm GMT -4 by

    The heroes go to war after discovering that Steppenwolf, Darkseid’s henchman who laid waste to their world, murdered their first generation of “wonders” Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman (and seemingly Robin/Huntress and Supergirl/Powergirl, although they were secretly teleported to the main DC Universe).  Green Lantern rallies The Flash and Doctor Fate to invade Dherain, the nation [...]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Thunderbolts’ #12

    Posted Sunday, July 7th, 2013 06:00 pm GMT -4 by

    Well it’s been an interesting run for the new set of Thunderbolts so far. Over the past 12 months Red Hulk has put together a team that consists of himself, The Punisher, Venom, Elektra, Deadpool and Red Leader. His team basically is the equivalent of Wolverine’s little X-Force team doing black ops work that no [...]

    “Superior Spider-Month” kicks off with a brand new ongoing series from ‘Secret Avengers’ scribe Nick Spencer that takes a look at some of Spider-Man’s biggest… well… strongest? No… Well, it takes a look at some of the webslinger’s villains when they’re not having their butts handed to them. As revealed in the preview earlier this [...]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Abe Sapien: Dark and Terrible’ #4

    Posted Sunday, July 7th, 2013 12:00 pm GMT -4 by

    The tale continues with Abe Sapien trying to figure out who he really is, what his purpose is, and where he fits in the new world. He’s had an interesting journey of self discovery and this forth issue is the beginning of a two issue arc that takes him to the Salton Sea. He’s heard [...]

  • TNT’s ‘Falling Skies’ Renewed for a 4th Season

    Posted Sunday, July 7th, 2013 10:00 am GMT -4 by

    It’s no secret that sci-fi shows on television are on the decline (even on their own “network“), and are being cancelled prematurely even after they are green-lit. So to hear that Falling Skies is coming back next summer may be a positive sign for the future. After only four weeks of being on air, the ratings for [...]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Iron Man’ #12

    Posted Saturday, July 6th, 2013 10:00 pm GMT -4 by

    With Iron Man hanging out in space (before he starts his little jaunt with The Guardians of the Galaxy), you really have to wonder what he might be up to. In fact, you might be wondering how, while in space, they run an arc entitled The Secret Origins of Tony Stark. . Back in the day [...]

  • Digital Comic Review: Batman ’66 #1

    Posted Saturday, July 6th, 2013 08:00 pm GMT -4 by

    For years, the 1960s Batman TV show starring Adam West as the Caped Crusader had a bad name.  It was labeled as campy and was blamed for giving comics a childish veneer making it shameful for a teen or adult to admit to being a fan.  I’m not sure what changed, but it’s refreshing to [...]

  • 2013 Pride – A Look At Gay Characters In Comics

    Posted Saturday, July 6th, 2013 06:00 pm GMT -4 by

    June was LGBT Pride Month and this year the event was especially historic with the Supreme Court repealing the Defense of Marriage Act.  Comic books are rarely on the cutting edge of cultural attitudes, but for whatever reason, they have embraced the LGBT cause, frequently showcasing gay characters in lead and supporting roles and even depicting [...]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Trinity of Sin: Pandora’ #1

    Posted Saturday, July 6th, 2013 04:00 pm GMT -4 by

    Who is Pandora?  The purple cloaked mystery woman who appeared at the end of ‘Flashpoint’ then in every first issue of the New 52 has been something of a cypher, only popping up occasionally here and there in the new DC Universe.  With this issue, we do get a bit more insight into her character, [...]

  • Book Review: ‘Letters To A Young Scientist’ by Edward O. Wilson

    Posted Saturday, July 6th, 2013 02:00 pm GMT -4 by

    For someone like me, it’s not really a question of did I like Letters to a Young Scientist by famed biologist, Dr. Edward O. Wilson. It wasn’t even about whether it was inspiring or not. Instead, it was a trip down a memory lane, lined with the specters of every negative thought I ever had, [...]
