Mike Gold: Money For Nothing

I was having lunch with’s Mike Raub yesterday and we were deep in discussion about our favorite topic, what the hell is wrong with the planet and why we are the only ones smart enough to realize it. Before long we were ranting about the lameness of most mainstream comics and the various attempts […]

The Point Radio: Curtain Ready To Drop On FALLING SKIES

The TNT Drama, FALLNG SKIES, winds up its fourth season with a big two part finale this weekend, and then returns in 2015 to wrap up the series with 10 last episodes. We give you a quick sneak peek at how things will turn out complements of series star Noah Wylie. Plus, maybe you’ve considered […]

Keith Knight has given me permission to run this. It’s my column this week. You can contact Keith right here.

Tweeks Review: Sisters by Raina Teglemeier

As Tweeks! viewers know, Raina Telgemeier is one of our all-time favorite authors, so we were  excited from the second we heard she would be writing another book about the autobiographical characters from Smile.  And then when we found it was called Sisters?!  How much more perfect does it get, right?  So, the question is, does Sisters – In […]

REVIEW: Amulet Book Six: Escape from Lucien

Amulet Book Six: Escape from Lucien By Kazu Kibuishi Scholastic Graphix, 214 pages. $12.99 We are six volumes into the fantasy series Amulet and it appears that as long as each book hits the best seller lists, Kazu Kibuishi will continue to pump these out on an annual basis. However, it is starting to fall […]

Emily S. Whitten’s Grand San Diego Adventure – Constantine

 (Editor’s Note: Remember that long stretch when Emily was busy having a life? Well, now she’s making up for it. For the next li’l bit, we’ll be running BRAND-NEW Emily S. Whitten columns on Tuesday mornings – AND on Saturday afternoons! No kiddin’!) The last time anyone really adapted the material of Hellblazer and main character […]

Box Office Democracy: “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”

I was remarking to a friend a few weeks back that I was afraid that I had grown out of Sin City, that the franchise I had loved so much as a teenager/young adult was just beneath me now.  I don’t think that’s it though, not entirely, popular culture itself seems to have absorbed the […]

New Who Review – “Deep Breath”

See, I told you he was good. Peter Capaldi is off and flying in the role he’s been practicing for since he was four years old.  The Paternoster gang is here to cushion the blow of the wild turns in tone and character, there’s a well-hidden piece of chalk, and a dinosaur explodes. Mind your […]

Mindy Newell: Take A Deep Breath

“Help him. And don’t be afraid.” – The Eleventh Doctor The best things about the return of Doctor Who this weekend. (Yep – SPOILER ALERT!) Hello, the Paternoster Gang! T. Rex in the Thames! Awesome opening credits! This time around they were created by a fan. Stephen Moffat saw his work on YouTube and said: […]

John Ostrander: Who Are You?

Let’s have our own little adventure in time and space. At the time I’m writing this, the new season of Doctor Who, starring the new guy, Peter Capaldi, has not yet played. By the time you read this, it will have already been on. A bit of the old timey-wimey thing. If you’re not a […]

What Marc Alan Fishman Looks For In A Comic Book

Following up on my column last week, I had to sit down and really ask myself what it would take to sell me on a comic book. Not to toot my horn of Stereotypical Jewishness, but the thought of wasting as few as five dollars on a product I won’t wholly appreciate causes me to […]


Repeat after me, as I repeat for the I don’t know how manyth time: Murder is bad for children and other living things. Murderers are also bad. So you can just imagine how I feel about murderers who murder. Which brings us to the conclusion of Justice League: Cry for Justice. In issue 7  of […]

The Point Radio: LEPRECHAUN Creepy DOLPHIN Cutsey

We take a look at two new films from completely opposite ends of the spectrum. LEPRECHAUN:ORIGINS reboots the franchise with a terrifying lead character that offers neither luck or charm. DOLPHIN TALE 2 brings back all the original cast including Harry Connick Junior who talks about how honestly thrilled he was to revisit the role […]

Martha Thomases: The DCU – Getting There Is Half The Fun

Traditionally, the last two weeks of August are the time when everyone goes on vacation. The chi-chi restaurants, the ones that don’t rely on tourists, are closed, which is fine because most tourists seem to prefer chains like Red Lobster, which I don’t understand at all. The kids are home from camp and taking two […]

Tweeks: #SDCC Interview with Writer/Artist Raina Teglemeier

Raina Telgemeier just might be the best middle grade author in the whole world.  She’s also probably the nicest author in the whole world…and maybe even the nicest person ever.  During San Diego Comic Con, she took some time to sit down with us to talk about her new book Sisters (check out our review Tuesday!), her […]

Dennis O’Neil: Charlton + Wertham = Olio?

Can I pause? Can I catch my breath? Where am I? About half way through August? That means I’m more than half way through the distance run that is this summer. Last commitment in October, only … I don’t know? three between now and then? Meanwhile, imagine me yelling, Oh, Leo! Something like what I […]

Mike Gold: The Wonder Woman Sensation

Back in the 1970s during my first tenure as a DC Comics employee, I rhetorically asked the question “who was relaunched more often – Wonder Woman or Captain America?” For you young’uns, in today’s lingo “relaunched” means “rebooted.” Even as a rhetorical question, people’s heads exploded. This, of course, did not stop us fanboys from […]

The Point Radio: IF I STAY Gives Chloe Mortez Another Tough Role

IF I STAY is the latest best selling fiction to hit the big screen, and it stars 17 years old Chloe Moretz who talks to us about why she chooses roles like this, CARRIE and even Hit Girl. Plus IDIOTEST is a new competition show on the Game Show Network and host Ben Gleib proves […]

Box Office Democracy: Life After Beth

Horror movies need to have a metaphor.  Slasher movies are historically about our attitudes about sex, Nightmare on Elm Street is about the fear we have of not being able to protect our children, even Shaun of the Dead was about the dangers of complacency.  I bring this up because Life After Beth has a […]
