Person of Interest 5th & Final Season Comes to DVD in July

This week, CBS began the twice-weekly airing of the final 13 episodes of Person of Interest. The series is dark, compelling, and addresses many of the privacy and cyber-terrorism issues we’re wrestling with in our world. They just do it with an attractive cast and solve things every 60 minutes. Here’s the official word on […]

REVIEW: Remember

We have probably reached the saturation point of fiction in film and prose about the Holocaust. While it remains an intensely personal tragedy for those connected with it, dramas about those horrific years have all begun to gain a sameness. Dark, moody, sad and when well done, incredibly affecting. That was certainly the way I […]

Tweeks: April 2016 Loot Pets Unboxing

The April Loot Pets theme was Quest…for Bacon! Yeah, not only was Barkley excited, but we were too. You know how we love Adventure Time! Watch Maddy unbox (with Barkley’s help) this totally mathematical Loot Pets box full of super cool stuff for both humans and dogs! If you want to spoil your own furry […]

Dennis O’Neil: Why Fix What Ain’t Broken?

A naked old man squatting near a small fire on a barren hillside, surrounded by children who listen as the old man’s voice enters the stillness… A scene from a time near the beginning of storytelling as a communal activity, or hear the end, a time when myth and religion finally reunite, or a time […]

Box Office Democracy: Keanu

Keanu is a lot of things, it’s a very funny comedy, it’s a sharp piece of social satire, and it’s a telling mirror held up to the tropes of the contemporary action movie, but what it isn’t is the movie they advertise it as, a movie about a cute kitten. I understand the urge to […]

Fans invited to Star Trek Beyond Fan Event Contest

HOLLYWOOD, CA (May 3, 2016) – Justin Lin and Paramount Pictures invite Star Trek fans to “Go Beyond” with a chance to attend an exclusive STAR TREK FAN EVENT in celebration of the series’ milestone 50th Anniversary this year and the release of Star Trek Beyond this summer. Beginning today through Friday, May 6, fans can submit […]

Molly Jackson: Class time!

Happy May the Fourth! It is a big day for Star Wars fans but rather than talk about adventures far far away, let’s look at a comic in this galaxy. Nigeria has been going through a rough time lately. Falling oil prices, violence popping up regularly affected the country poorly, while changes to school curriculums […]

Mike Gold, Unabashed Fanboy

Here’s why I conflate legendary bluesman Robert Johnson with legendary cartoonist/illustrator Jim Steranko. Johnson took American roots music and molded it into The Blues. Brilliantly, I might add, having composed and recorded such classics...Show More Summary

Joe Corallo: When You’re Strange…

This past weekend Captain America: Civil War raked in an impressive two hundred million dollars. That feat was made more impressive by the fact that the movie had not come out in the United States yet or even China, the second largest market for Hollywood movies. The past week has also seen a resurgence in […]

Mindy Newell: Wilson Fisk and Hell’s Kitchen

  “Today, the only reminder that this stretch of (Manhattan’s) SoHo was once a forest of filling stations known as Gasoline Alley is a coffee shop of the same name that sells single-origin coffee beans from Burundi.” • Sarah Maslin Nir, “With Gas Station’s Closing, A Fuel Desert Expands in Manhattan,” The New York Times, […]

Ed Catto: The Second Oldest in Comic Con

As a young comic fan growing up in New York State’s Finger Lakes Region, the tall tales and whispered rumors about the fabled NYC comic conventions were fascinating. They were a siren call. But the big city was so far away that I didn’t imagine, at that time, I’d ever make the trip to the […]

John Ostrander: Nasty Surprises

I’ve heard it said that old friends are the best friends. That makes sense to me. Over time, you’ve shared experiences together, both good and bad. You’ve grown to know each other, to know the little idiosyncrasies that make up who we are, that make the bonds between us. You can form that kind of […]

The Point Radio: The Frighteningly Real World Of HUNTERS

The new SyFy series HUNTERS has some interesting similarities to the terrorist threats we all face in the real world. Series star, Britne Oldford talks about that and why the series has some of the most realistic bad guys on TV. Then it’s reality TV competition comedy-style. Damian Lemon talks about the new, no holds […]

BURBANK, CA (April 26, 2016) – Imagine having the power to change history. Journey with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment to the 1960s with the release of 11.22.63 on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on August 9, 2016.  Executive Produced by Emmy® winner J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Lost), Stephen King (The Shining, The […]

Marc Alan Fishman: When You Can’t Have It All

Barely six days ago from the time this article prances across the interwebs to be posted to my little corner here at ComicMix, I will have once again broke bread with our ol’ E-I-C Mike Gold. Mr. Gold was in town (Chi-Town) for secret business. I’ve long since learned to stop asking for details, as […]

Eye in the Sky Lands at Home on June 14

The moral implications of modern warfare are confronted in Bleecker Street’s powerful drama, Eye in the Sky, coming to Digital HD on June 14, 2016 and Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on June 28, 2016, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.  Tackling an ethical dilemma in a thought-provoking suspenseful story, the gritty film stars Academy Award® […]

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #387

THE AVENGERS GET STANDOFFISH It’s getting so that in comics nowadays you can’t tell the good guys from the bad guys without a scorecard. And sometimes even then. Maria Hill is currently the director of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division or S.H.I.E.L.D. for short – or SHIELD for even shorter and guess which route […]

Martha Thomases: The Same Old Same Old

This has been a week of heart-breaking news, at least for me. No, nobody I know died (at least as of my deadline), but I hate all the stories coming out of DC Entertainment. No more Shelly Bond? Are they crazy? And Eddie Berganza? I remember meeting his cute kids. What the hell happened? And […]

Tweeks WonderCon 2016 Adventures

This year WonderCon was in L.A. for the first time. While we are fans of the Anaheim Conventions Center (and not just because they have the best ice cream), it was kind of exciting to try a new convention center out. It wasn’t bad, just a little confusing (as you’ll see in the video, we […]

Glenn Hauman: Neil Gaiman Does Not Need A Pity Hugo

What does this loser from the 90's have to do with the attempt to hijack the Hugo Awards?
