The Point Radio: Why LA SLASHER Is Bloody Real

We finally make it on set of the SyFy series KILLJOYS and the cast explains why this is a show you should be spending your summer watching. Plus reality TV gets a bloody visit from the LA SLASHER. Director Martin Owen talks about this much buzzed about new indy film. We are headed to […]


Well, at least this time the judge had a reason for getting the law completely wrong. We’re talking The Amazing Spider-Man #16.1 (16.1? Seriously? What’s with the odd-ball numbering in comics nowadays? We’ve had zero issues. Millionth issues. Fractional issues. Now decimal point issues? I should adapt Life of Pi to a comic book mini-series and number […]

Martha Thomases: Stupid People and Irresistible Knowledge

Banning books is stupid. I mean, you probably already oppose book banning. It violates the First Amendment. But I’m not talking about the law or morality. I’m talking about the stupid. All summer, ComicMix and The Tweeks will be urging kids and parents to read graphic novels that are being banned from school libraries. Here […]

Tweeks: Teen Beach 2 Because Disney

Full Disclosure:  We are obsessed with Disney Channel musicals.  And who can blame us?  It looks like a lot of people (of all ages) are too. Disney knows what they are doing with the genre and according to the Disney Channel last Friday night’s Teen Beach Movie 2 was its biggest cable TV original movie […]

Dennis O’Neil: Is Superman Super-Smart?

Yeah, I’ve heard that Superman is super smart as well as super all the other stuff he’s super at, but I don’t know. I can’t recall a single instance where he thought his way past some obstacle. More likely, he’d just uproot the obstacle and toss it to somewhere like Jupiter. Maybe he is really […]

Comics Round Up: June 2015

These books each deserve their own posts, but it doesn’t look like they’re going to get it. But here’s the deal I have for them: if I write more than three solid paragraphs about any one of them — and that does happen; I’m never sure how long my fingers are going to keep moving […]

Comics Reviews (July 1st, 2015)

Part One: Comics From worst to best of what I voluntarily paid money for. Secret Wars #4 It’s not even that it’s a bad comic. It’s just that, well, at this point it’s become impossible to read this comic as a separate phenomenon from the overall realignment of Marvel comics (see part two of this […]

Molly Jackson: Knowing Too Much

Marvel has been slowly and steadily announcing their plans for their “new universe” coming this fall. It has been the hot topic on most geek blogs and is keeping people excited, sort of. In just watching this event creating the new Marvel Universe unfolds, I already have some misgivings with how things are going. With […]

Mike Gold: The Shoe’s On The Other Foot

My long-time friend and colleague Martha Thomases does not like wearing high heels. This, of course, is her right. I have been sympathetic to her position, even to the point of referring to it as a contemporary form of traditional Chinese foot-binding. That was until this past Sunday. Now, meh, not so much. I’ve been […]

Box Office Democracy: Ted 2

I was disappointed by Ted 2 and considering I didn’t think much of the original Ted I’m not sure where the hell I get off feeling like this. Ted was a flimsy frame upon which a few passable jokes were hung and Ted 2 is a slightly flimsier frame with fewer decent jokes but it […]

Emily S. Whitten: Turtle Power! The Original TMNT

I’ve said before that some of the voice actors I’ve interviewed are the voices of my childhood, but I couldn’t possibly have been closer to interviewing a whole collection of voices from my early childhood at the same time than when I was at Awesome Con this year talking to all four of the original Teenage […]

Marc Alan Fishman: The Swift Response To Save Starving Artists

You might know her from too many pop-drivel hits on the radio. You might know her as the girl who always mouths the words and wriggles in her seat at all the award shows. But did you know Taylor Swift is also a militant defender of starving artists? In a blog aptly titled “To Apple, […]

Mindy Newell: Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Bob Ingersoll!

But this Court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us. Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be.” • Chief Justice Roberts “I join The Chief Justice’s opinion in full. I write separately to call […]

Ed Catto: The Spirit of 76… minus 1

Back in 1976 I loved comics (big surprise) but I didn’t really know who Will Eisner was. I didn’t know who The Spirit was either. But I still kind of got the gag on the cover of The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide that year. As you may know, this annual publication has a long […]

John Ostrander: Paving The Way

Friday was a landmark day for this country. The Supreme Court effectively said that same sex marriage was legal in all 50 states. In doing that, they reflected the views of American citizens: 63% of us have said they think same sex marriage should be legal. It’s been a majority opinion since 2010 when a […]
