Emily S. Whitten: Dresden Files’ Jim Butcher Talks Peace Talks

I am, as I have previously noted, a big fan of Jim Butcher’s long running series about the modern-day wizard Harry Dresden, a.k.a. The Dresden Files. The stories and characters are great fun and the books just keep getting better, and more complex, and deeper overall. If you haven’t encountered the series before, I highly […]

Mindy Newell: Shopping For My New Comics Shop

So yesterday afternoon I turned on the TV to watch the live Global Citizen concert and caught one of my favorite artists, Yusuf Islam – formerly known as Cat Stevens – performing songs “Wild World” and, joined by Eddie Vedder, “Father and Son,” both from one of his best albums, 1970’s Tea for the Tillerman. […]

Ed Catto: Think Globally, Geek Locally

The madness that is San Diego Comic-Con gave way to the easy fun of Baltimore Comic-Con. Now Geek Culture gets ready for the last big comic convention of the year, New York Comic Con, with anxiety and anticipation. But it’s not really as simple as that. There have been plenty of really good conventions each […]

John Ostrander: For What It’s Worth

 “Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong.” – For What It’s Worth, 1967, written by Stephen Stills, performed by Buffalo Springfield SPOILERS! Warning! Danger! I’m going to discuss some questions raised in Captain America: Civil War, which means some plot points will get spilled. If you haven’t yet seen the film – it’s just out on Blu-Ray […]

Marc Alan Fishman: Super Civic Pride

Marvel recently announced a set of variant covers for its newly launching U.S. Avengers series. As with most listicle-ized ideas in modern comic bookery, it wasn’t much of a shock to me as a stunt. It will provide local comic shops something cool to order to entice collectors with, and for the super serious collectors, […]

Long Way North Receives Limited Theatrical Run from Shout!

Directed by celebrated animator and filmmaker Rémi Chayé and produced by Sacrebleu Productions (Oscar®-Nominated Madagascar, Carnet de Voyage), Maybe Movies (Oscar®-Nominated Ernest & Celestine) and Norlum Studios (Oscar®-Nominated Song...Show More Summary

Martha Thomases’ March Revelation

Hallelujah! Over the weekend, I had a revelation. March, by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell, is the answer to every question, the solution to every problem. Let me explain how I came to see the light. I was at a conference for American Jews interested in increasing the opportunities for a shared society among […]

Box Office Democracy: Blair Witch

When I first saw The Blair Witch Project in 1999 it was the most scared I had ever been in a theater with the exception of having to leave the theater during Edward Scissorhands when I was six years old. A lot contributed to my enjoyment of that film: found footage was new and exciting […]

Tweeks: August 2016 Loot Crate, Loot Pets & Level UpUnboxing

We unbox our August Anti-Hero Loot Crate, Loot Pets Crate & Level Up bag and then fight over Harley Quinn stuff. That’s basically it. However if you like Archer or World of Warcraft, you can give us a good reason to send you that swag! State your case in the comments!

Dennis O’Neil: Defy! We Dare Ya!

  Done any daring to defy lately? If you’re a fan of the television versions of superheroes, you know what I’m talking/typing about. The network that calls itself The CW has, for a while now, been advocating such daring and this is the very same the go-to corporate entity that has made itself the go-to […]

Star Trek Beyond Orbits Digital HD Oct. 4, Disc Nov. 1

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.  – The intrepid crew of the USS Enterprise returns in “the best action movie of the year” (Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood).  The “highly entertaining” (David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter) new installment in the iconic franchise, STAR TREK BEYOND sets a course on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray Combo Packs, DVD and On […]

Mike Gold: The Real Monster

I was going to write about comics again this week; I usually do, and I’ve got all sorts of notes on a topic that can wait a week or two. ComicMix purports to proselytize about geek culture – or, as my fellow wordsmith Ed Catto calls it, “Geek Culture” – for the broader comic book […]

Emily S. Whitten: Convention Catch-Up — Yay, Dragon Con!

Time flies, doesn’t it? It seems like just yesterday I was watching Animaniacs Live, interviewing folks about Turtles and cartoons, seeing the latest in geek fashions, hanging out with American Gods, and chatting with the Kings of Con at SDCC, not to mention chillin’ at Nerd HQ. And now suddenly it’s September, and I’ve since attended […]

Joe Corallo: Caitlin R. Kiernan and the Rising Stars

Last week I interviewed Rachel Pollack in this space. In my introduction I mentioned that only two trans women have written for DC before. That’s somewhat true, and somewhat not true. It would be true to say that only one trans woman had written for DC, and it would also be true to say that […]

REVIEW: Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues

Gail Simone is an adept writer who brings a unique voice to her projects and when she took over Dynamite’s Red Sonja, it was no different. Her initial foray, Queen of Plagues, saw the she-devil with a sword lead an army as payback for a man who spared her life. Not only did she display […]

Ed Catto: Fiction with Purpose

On the way to RocCon, the Rochester Comic Convention, my cousin John gave me a comics-related clipping that his mom, my Aunt Carolyn, asked him to pass along. It was from the Catholic Courier and it was a positive review of Darwyn Cooke’s graphic novel The New Frontier. This week’s column was supposed to be […]

John Ostrander: Writing Rules

Recently on Facebook, a father asked me what advice I could give his 13-year old daughter who wanted to be a writer. I had to be succinct but I think my reply was moderately useful and I thought I’d repeat it here. As I’ve done columns about writing before, some of this may be familiar […]

Marc Alan Fishman: The Science of Selling

If there’s one thing Unshaven Comics has been celebrated for by our peers, our fans, and our nemeses alike, it’s our ABC mentality. “Always. Be. Closing.” Alec Baldwin barked at us through gritted teeth. And boy howdy did that lesson stick. Since our second-ever convention appearance, my cohorts and I have adopted the mentality that […]

REVIEW: Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants

There is no creative reason Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants exists. It is merely a vehicle to promote toys for the younger segment of fan. Essentially, if you have enjoyed any of the previous Batman Unlimited offerings – Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts and Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem — this will be equally entertaining. In this […]

Bob Ingersoll: Daredevil, Punisher and Where To Get A Fair Trial

  The Law Is A Ass #395 There’s an old joke I’m not going to repeat. It’s long; not very good; and, worst of all for a joke, not particularly funny. I bring it up because it’s punchline, “You can’t get there from here,” has a great bearing on the comic we’ll be discussing today. […]
