Dennis O’Neil: Marvel, DC, and Higgs

Okay now, try to stay with me because we’re going pretty deep… Those of you who were among the Faithful last week remember that we touched, very, very lightly, on a feature that the great comic book editor Julius Schwartz ran in a science fiction title published in the 50s. The comic book was titled […]

Comics Reviews (July 29th, 2015)

From worst to best of what I bought. Sandman Overture: Special Edition #5 The quality of the bonus material in this is really, amazingly, egregiously shit. I think my favorite this time is once again the Neil Gaiman interview, which is five questions long and consists of questions like “What’s on The Sandman‘s iPod,” a […]

Michael Davis, The Nigga You Love To Hate

“I heard payback’s a motherfucking nigga, that’s why I’m sick of getting treated like a goddamn stepchild, Fuck a punk cause I ain’t him.” • Ice Cube, The Nigga You Love To Hate The truth will set you free. As a African American man, my truth is not unlike the action toys I once collected […]

Mike Gold: James T. Kirk Is A What? And Ted Cruz Is A… What?

This is one of the many reasons I find politics to be a spectacular spectator sport – even when that nutcase Donald Trump isn’t sucking up all the ether in the bottle. According to an interview published in that Communist rag The New York Times, USS Enterprise Captain James T. Kirk is a Republican, while […]


Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart do a great job introducing the trailer for their Krofft reboot.

Doctor Who returns to theaters in 3-D, with preview of Series 9

Box Office Democracy: Pixels

I remember rather clearly the first time I saw the trailer for Pixels. It has a cool introduction about sending examples of 1982 culture in to space and then it quickly moves on to some quick shots of the attack and then the coup de grace of the giant Pac-Man crashing through midtown Manhattan eating […]

Tweeks: Read “This One Summer” This Summer: #ChallengedChallenge Week 3

For week #3 of the ComicMix Challenged Challenge, we discuss This One Summer by Jillian Tamaki & Mariko Tamaki.  This Caldecott Medal winner was challenged because some over-conscended parents didn’t bother to read the book jacket, assumed this ages 12 & up recommended book was meant for their young readers. Duh!  So, yeah, we talk […]

Mindy Newell: Weekend Hoosier?

“I’ll make it.” •  Jimmy Chitwood (Maris Valainis) • Hoosiers (1986) Wow. Two weeks. That’s a long time to wait with bated breath. My apologies to everyone who turned blue while waiting to find out if I had broken my ankles. To reprise: A little more than two weeks ago, Wednesday July 9 to be exact, […]

Ed Catto: The Retail Panel That Started 35 Years Ago

 Another one of the panels I moderated at San Diego Comic-Con was called “The 7 Comic Shop Archetypes.” “Who Will Triumph, Thrive and Survive?” was the admittedly over-the-top subheading. The purpose of this B2B panel was to explore the business aspects of this retail outlet that serves as both the sentry guard and encouraging ambassador for […]

John Ostrander: VOX

As part of the Kickstarter campaign for Tom Mandrake’s and my new project, Kros: Hallowed Ground (which, by the way, is still going on at, I’ve done a number of podcast interviews, which have been fun, and I always try to listen to them. I want to get an idea of how Tom and […]

This week is our 2nd San Diego Comic Con Recap…and our HAUL!  See all our stuff (well, most of our stuff) we got at the con, watch us play KISS pinball,  & hear our exciting stories about the Scholastic Party, meeting Jem, the fashionably nerdy mixer,  Holland Roden, Snoopy & Belle in fashion, & a […]

The Point Radio: Nothing Complicated With Jessica Szohr

Actress Jessica Szohr has landed on the hit USA series, COMPLICATIONS. She fills us in on all the action, why you should be watching and talks about her upcoming roles, too. Plus we look at what may TV’s most unique concept, Comedy Central’s DRUNK HISTORY. How do they do that? In a few days, […]

Marc Alan Fishman: Marvel – Make Em’ Laugh. Make Em’ Laugh!

Howdy ya’ll. I’m back from Nashville. And you know what they say about Music City: What happens in Music City, stays in Music Ci… wait, no, they don’t say that. Feh! It was a day-job convention. It was exhausting. It was very much not about comics, pop culture, or anything fun. But since ya’ll wanted […]

Would you Believe Get Smart is Turning 50?

New York, N.Y., July 23, 2015 – When it originally debuted in September of 1965, Get Smart, the multiple Emmy®winning classic spy-spoof comedy series from comic geniuses Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, generated countless catchphrases like “Would...Show More Summary

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #366: ROUND UP THE USUAL SUSPICIONS

Okay, a show of hands, who’s ever heard them say this one on a TV show? POLICE: “You’re under arrest.” SUSPECT: “On what charge?” POLICE: “Suspicion of murder.” Why did I think a show of hands would work in a written medium? Here’s a little tip for the next time any of you might be […]

REVIEW: Silicon Valley the Complete Second Season

It’s a challenge to begin watching a show during its second season. After all, the characters have been introduced, the dynamics established and the backstory in place. Season twos tend to show evolution as the cast and crew all find their rhythm but don’t always remember to reintroduce themselves in case newcomers have wandered by. […]

Martha Thomases: Bill Cosby Remembered

Hello, everybody! This might be another column in which I am wrong. Well, not entirely wrong. We’re talking about my personal opinions and tastes, and while you might not like them, you can’t exactly say I don’t have those particular feelings. So, here it is: I think Bill Cosby is really funny. I don’t think he’s […]
