Last post still applies, but I couldn’t resist typing up a quick review for this crossover. For really this was extremely disappointing! Beware spoilers It has moments.I enjoy the “Is it just me or is she hot” between Mick and Sara as well as Ray (Brandon Routh who played Superman once) noting that Supergirl looks … Continue reading →
To be honest, I’m not fully sure what I want to do. My plan starting with the Luke Cage review was to hit up 1 review a month and slowly pick up the pace. Since then I’ve diverted that as Smallville hit Hulu and I’m currently working on a guide for the entire series – … Continue reading →
Delving into the newest Marvel show with a lack of spoilers and character knowledge! So first, I do know a little about the character pre-Netflix Marvel shows, but just not much. A couple Spider-Man video game cameos, and a minor appearance here and there in comics. First about the show in general. It simply is … Continue reading →
That’s right! Trump became a villain(?) and king recently in Marvel’s Spider-Gwen Annual #1! So recent Spider-Gwen Annual is a fun affair. It gives a fairly nice view at some of Earth-65’s world beyond what we’ve currently seen. While I’ve absolutely been loving Spider-Gwen, I’m very happy this issue isn’t a focus just on her … Continue reading → […]
Often, comic books can seem rather unremarkable or uninteresting. Sticking to genre conventions can make them too conventional, but staying with what works makes sense.

Last summer I was privileged to accidentally discover a new comic book company, SKY ARK. They were in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign for their second-ever published comic, “Hiraeth”, and I was able to do an interview with co-founder Ryan Swanson and Creative Writer Brent Hodges (which you can find right here on the blog). ...
It’s happened to everyone: a complete stranger sends you a “friend request” via social media, and (slightly panicked) you think, “Oh no… did I meet this person and completely forget??” This is how I met Ryan Swanson. Mark Zuckerberg’s minions generated me as a suggestion after he friended a buddy who works at a comic ...
I didn’t know anything about Lumberjanes when I picked it up. What I knew was that I loved Noelle Stevenson’s art, that it was a comic series geared toward YA (my go-to genre), and that it had an all-female cast. Everyone was talking about it, especially after the success of Stevenson’s award-winning graphic novel, Nimona, and ...
There is no shortage of escapism in modern movies. But forty years ago, flights of fancy were few and far between. The seventies were known for gritty, realistic cinema. Partially, the lack of fantasy films was a result of technological limitations. The tagline for Superman: The Movie was “You’ll believe a man can fly” because […]
The Queen of Funk is celebrating her 65th today. Chaka Khan (given name Yvette Stevens) grew up in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, and began performing in the Chicago area as a teen. At 17, she briefly became the lead singer of an R&B/soul band, the Babysitters, and a year later she was recruited as a […]
