Martha Thomases: Funny, You Don’t Look Booish

Boo! It’s Halloween today, when we laugh at death and taunt ghosts, witches and demons. Traditionally, we dress up in costume as something that scares us, exorcising our fears through make-up and disguise. If this was still a barometer of what we are afraid of, most women (and girls) are terrified of sex. And of […]

Tweeks: Comics Squad Recess!

Hey Middle Grade Readers!  When you unload some of your trick or treat candy to the local orthodontist this weekend for cash, you might be looking for something to spend it on.  Well, since this time of year reminds us of the Scholastic Book Fair and rainy day recesses spent inside reading, we suggest: Comic Squad: […]

Dennis O’Neil: Trick Or What?

We haven’t gotten visits from trick-or-treaters for quite a few years now. We live at the top of a pretty steep hill on a block that has only two houses facing the street, no businesses, not much light. Not a lot here to attract apprentice ghosts and goblins. If any do show up, we’ll give […]

Michael Davis: The Great New York Con

I’m from New York. I’m a New Yorker who has lived the last 20 years in Los Angeles or LA, as it’s commonly called. LA is where my life is now; driven here quite literally by an offer I couldn’t refuse. Despite the often-racist policies of City Hall and its Choke-An-Unarmed-Black-Man-to-Death police force, NYC will […]

The Quest is Ended: Tom Baker joins Doctor Who Legacy

Collectors love completing a set.  So imagine the joy of players of Doctor Who: Legacy when it was announced that Tom Baker, a.k.a. “Four,” had been approved for addition to the game, thus giving a full set of Doctors. The download code for Tom Baker was released earlier today via Kotaku. The free-to-play game has gained a […]

Mike Gold: More Movies, More Movies, More Movies

Now that both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. have released their slates of movies-to-come, I offer a question of deep concern. How much … is too much? Over the next six years or so, we are supposed to get (take a deep breath) Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn […]

Marvel Reveals Movie Slate: It’s… Amazing!

At a special event in Hollywood today, Marvel Studios officially announced its film schedule for the next four years.  Confirming rumors, the Doctor Strange film was announced, as well as pleasant surprise announcements for Captain Marvel and Black Panther After an initial tease that it would be “Serpent Society”, the real subtitle for the next Captain America film […]

Mindy Newell: B Is For Bondage

Wonder Woman is psychological propaganda for the new type of woman who should, I believe, rule the world. There isn’t love enough in the male organism to run this planet peacefully. Woman’s body contains twice as many love generating organs and endocrine mechanisms as the male. – William Marston Moulton When I saw Wonder Woman […]

New Who Review: “In the Forest of the Night”

A great actor once said “never work with children or animals.”  This episode features both, and once again, the axiom proves true.  The students of Coal Hill School have a sleepover in the museum of natural history, and wake up… IN THE FOREST OF THE NIGHT By  Frank Cottrell-Boyce Directed by Sheree Folkson London, and […]

Thunderbirds: Age of the Hood

With the Avengers movie footage only available a week, the online mash-up artists have been making marvels. We’ve seen the Pinocchio clips, but here’s some other puppets more used to explosions and catastrophe.

John Ostrander: Redeeming Vader

By its nature, a trilogy connects. In movies, it becomes a single story united by narrative and/or theme. Each component film should stand on its own but they should come together as a single narrative. Star Wars, especially the Original Trilogy (now known as Episodes IV, V, and VI), is a good example of this. […]

Watch a Bonus Clip from Maleficent

With Walt Disney releasing Maleficent on disc next week, they have offered us a Bonus Clip from the special features found on the Bu-ray disc. The Angelina Jolie-starrer arrives November 4 as a combo pack containing the Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD versions o fthe liv-action retelling of the classic fairy tale. Our review will […]

Marc Alan Fishman: The Responsibilities of a Show Promoter

Having concluded an exhausting round of conventions (with one more to go in November, baby!), I find myself in awe of those brave soldiers who put on the shows themselves. From the giant conglomerate-hedge-fund-corporations with deep pockets, to the lonely islands that build their shows in small hotel ballrooms (like Days Inn… screw those who […]

The Point Radio: Z NATION Gets More Life

SyFy has renewed their light hearted zombie drama, Z NATION, and we talk to showrunner Craig Engler and (former) star Tom Everett Scott on how they plot their path to be different than that OTHER zombie series. Plus actor Mark Consuelos gets us set up for the new season of ALPHA HOUSE, premiering today on […]

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #331: HE AVENGERS TAKE A.I.M. AT DIPLOMACY

I’ve been avoiding this one like the plague. Or The Stranger. Or other existential novels by Albert Camus. Read them in high school. Didn’t understand them. But, then, I didn’t understand some aspects of Avengers Assemble v 2 21, either. So I guess it’s onward. Here’s what I can tell you. Spider-Girl, the Anya Corazón […]

Martha Thomases: Finding The Big Apple

From the sublime to the ridiculous. Except I did it backwards. Last week, as you no doubt recall, I wrote about New York Comic-Con, one of the biggest pop culture shows in the country. This week, I’d like to write about one of the smallest. But first, some background and some sociological theory. New Yorkers […]

Michael Davis: I Am Static

Twenty-one years ago, five friends, Denys Cowan, Derek Dingle, Dwayne McDuffie, Christopher Priest, and I partner to form Milestone Media. The Dakota Universe was born soon afterwards. There was one goal above all: to create a universe of good stories, well told, featuring characters of color. We did, and when we did, comics changed. Milestone […]

Dennis O’Neil Goes To Kokomo

Out on runway number nine, big 707 set to go / But I’m stuck here on the ground where the cold winds blow • Gordon Lightfoot You’d think, after all the trips we’ve taken, that we’d know how to get to the airport on time. But this day, we didn’t. So there we were, grounded […]
