Supergirl #24 Ghosts of Krypton Part 2: Star Child… The Final Straw!
After two years of waiting for a decent story line, Supergirl has failed me for the final time. Two years ago I started reading Supergirl. The first several issues had decent art (if you like Michael Turner) minus the fact that Supergirl looked to be in her early twenties rather than her supposed age of […]
Marvel Offers Subscription Web Comics
Is $9.99 too much to pay for an online comic book subscription service? Marvel doesn’t seem to think so, but time will tell how their fans feel.
The Scritch-Scratch of Busy Little Hands
I just watched an awesome animated short called “The Scritch-Scratch of Busy Little Hands” on YouTube. As is usual with an animated short, this one doesn’t have much of a story line, but the animation is wonderful. It really reminds me of Charles Addams mixed with David Firth mixed with Edward Gorey. Pretty cool stuff. […]
Avoid DC Comics Countdown if You Know What’s Good for You!
At some point in time during one of my posts I lamented the fact that I failed to write about each issue of 52. It was a great series and I was sad to see it go. At that time I had grand plans to write about each and every issue of Countdown… then I […]
The Initiative: The Mighty Avengers 1 + 2
After the events of Marvel’s Civil War, Tony Stark was appointed as director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Initiative was implemented, meaning that each state has a super hero group assigned to protect it. Although I was extremely bored with Civil War, I’m really enjoying most of the Initiative titles. The Mighty Avengers, however is not […]
Batman: Return of the Dark Knight on Youtube
A few days ago I received a comment from Kourosh Rahimpour, the genius behind Batman Defenders of the Night and it’s sequel, Batman and Robin: Dark Betrayal. It turns out that Kourosh Rahimpur (Batman) and Arvin Tounian (Robin) have teamed up once more for a third installment entitled Batman: Return of the Dark Knight. Bruce […]
Marvel’s Greatest Comics #61
In this issue of Marvel’s Greatest Comics, the Thing has been transformed from the Ever Lovin’ hunk of rock that he normally is, to regular old human, Ben Grimm. Apparently his new mug is so rugged and manly, Johnny Storm’s girlfriend can’t keep her hands… or lips, off him! Johnny’s reaction is classic… bursting in […]
Batman vs. Picketers: Batman Arrested!
This has got to be one of the greatest videos I’ve seen in a while. On Friday, a Batman impersonator was involved in a tiff with some picketers: they wouldn’t let him use their porta-potty. Batman ripped off his cape and threw it to the ground while yelling at the picketers. Batman even had a […]
Captain America on the Colbert Report
Captain America’s death is the subject of the Word on Comedy Central’s Colbert Report.
132 Piece Roman Soldier Set
I love old comic books ads. They are extremely deceptive and awesome. Take the 132 Piece Roman Soldier Set for instance. The image depicts a violent and intense battle taking place on a beach in rome. Skirts flap in the wind, daggers shine in the sun, and soldiers scream as the last minutes of their […]
