Mindy Newell: EW Does SDCC

My geek overdrive continues to overwhelm me. But I’m not the only one. Less than a week away from this year’s San Diego ComicCon (which opens its doors this Thursday, July 24th, and closes them on Sunday, July 27th) Entertainment Weekly joins the national geek fest that is summertime with a bang-up double-size issue featuring […]

John Ostrander’s Late Look: How To Train Your Dragon 2

I don’t always get out to see movies these days and I’ve missed some this summer that I wanted to see. My Mary and I had a chance to sneak in a film this week and we chose to catch How To Train Your Dragon 2 before it disappeared from the movie theaters. We had […]

Marc Alan Fishman: But Why A Comic Book?

Lately, I’ve become a freak. That is to say, a fan of the Freakanomics Podcast. Stephen Dubner and Steve Levitt like to take a topic and ask the questions no one is asking. They also like to start from the opposing side of the common problem in order to find potential solutions. As such, I figured […]

On The Economics Of Digital Comics

Have you been noticing that the digital comics scene is a little… active… these days? You’ve got the market getting estimated at $90M for 2013. There are a lot of different reports about how many copies the same day digital editions sell. I’ve heard anywhere from 10% to 25% of the print sales. It seems […]


I suppose Marvel decided to call its evil super-corporation Roxxon, because the name sounded like real-life super-corporation Exxon, but not so close that it would get them sued, and because, back in 1974, the Comics Code wouldn’t have let Marvel call it Roxxoff. And now, having gone for the cheap laugh, let’s move on to […]

Martha Thomases: That San Diego Con

It’s that time of year again. All the cool kids are getting ready to go to the San Diego Comic-Con. And by “cool kids,” I mean people who are younger, stronger and more patient than me. Every year, I kvetch about Comic-Con. And every year, I kind of want to go. I mean, not go […]

A Colorado judge overseeing the murder case against accused theater gunman James Holmes proposed on Wednesday that jury selection begin in December for the trial that has already been postponed three times, a court filing shows.

Dennis O’Neil: Gone Fishin’

Our pal and faithful columnist Dennis O’Neil is taking some well-deserved time off. We really don’t think he’s fishing out by the pond; Denny’s a vegetarian and fish doesn’t grow on trees. Well, not yet. This aside, Denny will be back in short order.  Until then, track down this comic book (pictured to your left) […]

To See Or Not To See, That Is The Question

So, as you may have heard, first the scripts from the first five episodes, and then a work print of the actual first episode of Doctor Who leaked last week.  And those fans with access to the internet (also known as “all fans”) all felt like Pandora, wondering whether or not they should take just […]

Emily S. Whitten: The DashCon Disaster Mystery

You guys: DashCon – seriously, what the hell?? Or, more coherently: on Sunday, my Twitterfeed suddenly started filling up with references to what, in honor of Holmes and Watson, we’ll call “The DashCon Disaster Mystery.” The first mention I encountered was from the Baker Street Babes, an all-female Sherlockian fan group well known and respected […]

“Doctor Who” rumored to feature fan-made credits

Or so claims Bleeding Cool. Apparently the credits included in the leaked Doctor Who scripts (you’ve heard about those, yes? More on those later) say the new credits are by “BBC Wales Graphics based on original idea by Billy Hanshaw”. Billy Hanshaw posted these credits some months back, which caused many clothes to become stained. If this […]

What A Shock: Marvel Doesn

Stunned, stunned we are: With potentially billions of dollars at stake, Marvel told the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday not to review Lisa Kirby v. Marvel Characters,...Show More Summary

Box Office Democracy: “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes could have easily fallen in to the trap that many genre movies fall into of simply being competent.  They scarcely have particularly original or surprising stories (and Dawn is no exception on this front) but they usually get by through skillful execution.  Dawn of the Planet of the […]
