BURBANK, Calif., Oct. 14, 2016 — Pete’s Dragon, a reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film centered on an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot — who just so happens to be a dragon — comes home on Nov. 29 on Digital HD, Blu-ray™, Disney Movies Anywhere, DVD and On-Demand.

Marc Alan Fishman, In A New York Minute

I know each and every one of you sat dumbfounded last Saturday morning – your coffee in hand, and morning paper tucked firmly under arm – when perusing ComicMix and not seeing your weekly dose of Fishtastic opinions. I apologize to you. There’s no excuse for it. Simply put, I was at the New York […]

REVIEW: Legend of Tarzan

When Warner Bros announced they were making a new Tarzan film, the first question among fans was, “Do we really need another Tarzan movie?” The character has had more interpretations and reboots than just about any other pop culture figure from the 20th Century and it felt that his relevance has passed. The answer, surprisingly […]

Michael Davis: Those MOFOs

The Dream Killer series continues next week. I was attending The Pratt Institute and needed all the bank I could get. Pratt’s one of the world’s great art schools and cheap it was not. I had to come up with most of the tuition because no one talked to me about how financial aid went […]

Martha Thomases: Respect Is More Than Just A Song

You might be wondering what the ruckus raised by the release of the Access Hollywood Trump video has to do with comics. As it happens, quite a lot. You see, if you take the partisan politics out of it, if you don’t talk about what Democrats or Republicans think, the Trump video and the response to […]

Tweeks Review Raina Telgemeier’s Ghosts

As you know, we’re HUGE Raina Telgemeier fans! Last month, her latest graphic novel, Ghosts was released by Scholastic and it really should be on everyone’s reading list this October!

Dennis O’Neil: More Mighty

So here I am, this slightly chilly afternoon in October, Columbus Day, as a matter of fact, not celebrating slavery, racism, the exploitation of indigenous peoples, imperialism – those are the values the sailor man represents, aren’t they? – just sitting in my (as always) messy office, thinking about Mighty Mouse. Guess we didn’t finish […]

Mike Gold: Hogan’s Weirdos

We could spend the rest of this year debating which American teevee show has been the weirdest, but Hogan’s Heroes has got to make the top 10 list. The high-concept: Hogan’s Heroes is the story of a group of Allied prisoners-of-war who operate a highly effective spy and sabotage operation from a bunker beneath their […]

Box Office Democracy: The Birth of a Nation

I don’t particularly like movies that are graphic depictions of historical atrocities. I don’t like movies about the Holocaust or particularly gritty war movies or, as in this case, slavery. I don’t have a problem learning about troubling historical periods through nonfiction, but there’s something that feels exploitative about going over human misery so exhaustively. […]

Joe Corallo: Comic Con Narrowly Misses The Point

This week’s column marks my one-year anniversary of doing this at ComicMix. Though I’m tempted to do a year in review, this past weekend was New York Comic Con so that idea is going to have to be put on hold for at least a week. I started Thursday morning by getting to the Javits […]

REVIEW: X-Men: Apocalypse

One of the enduring reasons behind the X-Men’s popularity has been the writers and artists exploring being a mutant as being a metaphor for some aspect of the real world. It fueled the comics for decades and informed the 1990s animated series to a degree. It even was the foundation for the first Bryan Singer-directed […]

What Mindy Newell Is Watching…

Well, the fall television season has begun, which means I’ve been watching the return of my favorite series and the premiere of new shows that have tickled my interest. Here’s a rundown. Timeless (Mondays, 10 P.M., NBC) Everyone who reads this column regularly knows that I’m a nut for alternate history and time-travel stories, so […]

Ed Catto: Frank Robbins

When I was a kid I’d make the trek to Lewis’ Drug Store to buy comics with my allowance money. Maxwell’s Food Store had a better selection, but that was on the other side of the treacherous “Five Points” intersection, and I wasn’t yet allowed to cross that on my own. Detective Comics, starring Batman, […]

John Ostrander’s Picking Favorites

Last weekend I was at the Geek’d Con in Rockford, Illinois. It was a small first time con and it had some things to work out, but over all it went okay. I really enjoyed the fans but, for me, the big moment was when my niece, Julie Adams, showed up with her husband Rob […]

On Oct. 8, cephalopod supporters around the globe will celebrate World Octopus Day, a day that recognizes the earth’s eight-armed sea creatures. But today, Friday, Oct. 7, Disney•Pixar is celebrating a new holiday — World Septopus Day – in honor of Hank, Dory’s curmudgeonly seven-armed wingman from the summer blockbuster “Finding Dory.” Hank may have […]
