Scream Queens Season 1 Limited Edition Offers Nail Wraps

SCREAM QUEENS – SEASON ONE Get hooked on TV’s mischievous and addictive new series – SCREAM QUEENS – that will make you scream with delight! In the thrilling new series, a mysterious “Red Devil” killer wreaks havoc at Wallace University’s Kappa Kappa Tau sorority, putting every pledge on edge. Tension mounts as it becomes clear that […]

Molly Jackson’s Creepy Confessions

With a loaded title like that, I guess I just need to cut to the chase. Ok, so here it is. I don’t like zombies. The genre doesn’t do it for me. Seeing the struggle of humans retaining their humanity is always a good read but fighting brainless zombies is just boring. The last (and […]

Marvel Studios Names Winner of Girls Reforming the Future Program

Last week, Marvel Studios selected the latest winner of their STEM-based internship program in conjunction with the theatrical release of Marvel’s Dr. Strange on 11/4. The theme of this most recent program was The Magic of STEM, challenging girls to explore science and technology that may have once been considered “magic.” The winner of the […]

Mike Gold: The Real Fan

While watching the baseball game Saturday night, it occurred to me that the difference between pop culture and geek culture is sports. Sports are part of our pop culture but not generally thought of as a component of geek culture. Our cohort Martha Thomases might say (I haven’t asked, but this seems to follow her […]

Box Office Democracy: Keeping Up with the Joneses

Despite all the star power on high, "Keeping Up with the Joneses" is a comedy that, sadly, just isn’t very funny.

Michael Davis: Dream Killer 4 – Publish or Perish

From last week: That, boys and girl, is called knowing the game. Those who don’t shouldn’t play. So despite being blackballed by one of the big two how was I able to thrive? Alternative means of finding distribution, budget and happiness. The vast majority of top tier creators in the industry use one option. There […]

REVIEW: Independence Day: Resurgence

It’s fairly amazing that it took five men — Nicolas Wright, James A. Woods, Dean Devlin, Roland Emmerich, James Vanderbilt – to conceive the story and pen the script to Independence Day: Resurgence when it trod no new ground and felt like the worst rehash of the original film and many other SF flicks from […]

Emily Whitten’s New York Comic Con 2016 Round-Up!

New York Comic Con has once again rushed by in a giant, fun, crazy blur, and although I didn’t get to nearly all the things I was hoping to, I did have a rockin’ time and see some really cool things I can share. The first of these were a few great panels I landed seats […]

Joe Corallo: Raising GWAR

Crowd funding has been a great starting ground for many comics projects. One of the latest to hit Kickstarter is GWAR: Orgasmaggedon. Yes, that GWAR. The heavy metal icons are teaming up with comics professionals to bring us their signature mayhem off the stage and into your comics. Here’s an excerpt from their press release: […]

Sequart’s Book on Claremont’s 17-Year X-Men Run Now Available

Sequart Organization is proud to announce the publication of The Best There is at What He Does: Examining Chris Claremont’s X-Men, by Jason Powell. The X-Men franchise is a sprawling comics mythology, to which hundreds of creators have contributed over the past 50 years. The period from 1975 to 1991 is special, however, as the X-Men […]

Mindy Newell: Daughters of Hippolyta

On Friday, October 21, 2016, something remarkable happened. Princess Diana of Themiscrya was appointed an Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls everywhere around the globe by the United Nations in a ceremony led by Under-Secretary General for Communications and Public Information Christina Gallach. It was attended by the actors Lynda Carter and […]

Ed Catto and The New York Comic Con Newbie

Indian Summer, autumn’s first batch of orange-hued fallen leaves and New York Comic Con have all tumbled away, relegated to that odd intersection of fond memories and the comfortable knowledge of their inevitable return. The New York Comic Con, now the nation’s largest geek culture convention, seems to change each year. And after more than […]

John Ostrander: Listing To One Side

Geek Culture Rules! We all know that Geek Culture has taken over our American civilization. Young’uns may not realize there was a time when the Geek was looked down on and sneered at and frequently beaten up for their lunch money… which is embarrassing when you’re 24. Now, superheroes have taken over the movie box […]

Marc Alan Fishman: Kosmic Serendipity

I’m a fan of eating crow. Truly a student from the school of tough love. The other day I happened to be perusing my archive of articles here on ComicMix when I hit on the one where I vowed to buy more indie books. That article was published August 14, 2014. Shortly after it hit […]

Martha Thomases: Copycat Crimes

Passionate and principled capitalists believe in the rights of workers, investors and creative people to reap the rewards of their efforts. If you start a business, invent a new product, or plant in your own field, you should get to keep the profits… after paying your workers fairly, of course. We’re talking about capitalists with […]

Tweeks: Steven Universe Interviews

Steven Universe is one of our favorite cartoons ever and so we were really excited to get to interview them at Comic Con. We talked to Zach Callison (who is not only the voice of Steven, but also of Prince James in Sofia the First), Ian Jones-Quartey (storyboarded/animator), Michaela Dietz (Amethyst), Deedee Magno Hall (Pearl….who […]

Dennis O’Neil, Bob Dylan, and Temporary Disreputability

I don’t know how or from whom I learned of Bob Dylan. My patches of memory reveal that I was living aboard an aircraft carrier. I must have gone into a city (Boston?) and bought a copy of The Freewheeling Bob Dylan, then taken it to a tiny office below the flight deck, put it […]

MICHAEL DAVIS: The Dream Killer 3 – Know The Game!

Please read the first two installments in the series if you have not done so. From Dream Killer 2: Full discloser: For two decades I was not welcome at DC. “What did you do?” I’ve gotten that question countless times. “What did they do?” Not as many have asked, but more than a few. What’s […]

Mike Gold: The Mighty Marvel Monster Society

Remember back in the good old days when comic books were fun to read? Before the never-ending cascade of deaths that are meaningless and temporary, multiple characters with the same name and pretty much the same abilities, and incessant earthshattering mega-events that bring together entire universes of superheroes just so we can see how much […]

Box Office Democracy: The Accountant

Movies like The Accountant used to be a dime a dozen, or at least they felt like that, a simple action movie with a low-A-list or high-B-list actor just filling time in the schedule. Now it feels like all of these movies have become franchise entries instead, a safer attempt at the same money as […]
