Tweeks March LootCrate LVL UP+ Unboxing

Hey Geeks!  Of course you all know about Loot Crate, right? It’s where you can get your nerd on via toys & collectables in the mail. Well, Loot Crate’s LVL Up+ brings you nerdy things to wear.  You can add level by level what kind of extras you want.    

John Ostrander: Don’t Look Down

There’s a rule for tightrope walkers: don’t look down. If you look down, you’ll fall. Focus instead on the other end of the wire, where you’re headed. Focus on the goal. I’ve always felt that’s good advice for writers as well. Don’t look down. If you doubt that you can write, you can’t. If asked […]

Announcing a New Monthly Feature From The Tweeks

Debuting on March 27th, ComicMix’s resident twin teen geeks The Tweeks will be bringing us a new monthly feature! Maddy and Anya will present their LootCrate LVL Up+ unboxing. But the fun doesn’t stop there! Quite appropriately, the March LootCrate theme is “Versus.” Since there is only one of each LootCrate goodie but two geeky girls, it […]

Review: BvS Is A Four-Letter Word

Did you ever endure some sort of traumatic injury knowing full well that a minute or two after the moment of disaster it was going to hurt a hell of a lot worse? That’s how I felt after seeing Batman v Superman. Bright-eyed fanboy that I am, I walked into the theater with the highest […]

Marc Alan Fishman: The Super Hatred for Batman v. Superman

Let’s get this point out straight away: I haven’t seen Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Just Angry Dudes Who Like Destruction-Porn.  Beyond the trailers, I have done everything in my power to not read spoilers. I’ve put on blinders on whilst perusing my social media feeds, allowing me to catch only shreds of the shared […]

Martha Thomases: Comics’ Ambassador

Comics in the White House! My esteemed colleague, Mindy Newell, recently noted that our current president is a big ol’ comic book nerd. We knew that. Way back when this site started up, we ran the photo of Obama in Metropolis, Illinois, striking an iconic pose next to the Superman statue. Last week, as part of […]

Tweeks Hit Silicon Valley Comic Con 2016

We took a road trip up to San Jose last weekend to check out the first ever Silicon Valley Comic Con. This was Steve Wozniak (of Apple fame) & Stan Lee’s venture. As we should have guessed by the location alone, this wasn’t the kind of con we’re used to. It was nerd on nerd […]

Dennis O’Neil: Return With Us Now To Those Thrilling Days…

The Second World War had not yet started, at least not for the United States, when I drifted through a wall and into office space in one of the Manhattan business buildings. Anyone seeing me would assume that I was a man in his thirties, but actually I was less than a year old. Astral […]

Moly Jackson’s A Better Place

Most comic fans have a lot going on this week. Marvel’s Daredevil out on Netflix or DC’s Batman Vs. Superman out in theaters. A new bevy of comics out today. A few religious holidays this week too, including Purim and Easter.  Even with all that, this is not a good week. It has been a […]

Mike Gold: Sugar & Spike v Guido Crepax – Dawn of Decision

Dichotomies. Every day brings hundreds if not thousands of choices. The red blouse vs. the blue blouse. Filet mignon vs. butt steak. Marvel vs. DC. Sugar and Spike vs. Guido Crepax. Which to pick? Right now I’m struggling between writing about two totally different types of comics, and here “totally” is an understatement. Fantagraphics just […]

Box Office Democracy: The Divergent Series: Allegiant

In my review of the last entry in the Divergent series, Insurgent, I praised the franchise for its restraint in not breaking up the last part of their series into two movies and it seems I have to apologize for giving out bad information. They are breaking up their last book, they just had the […]

The Shannara Chronicles Season One Comes to DVD on June 7

NEW YORK – Called “the best looking fantasy series on TV” (IGN) and “damn fine television” (Collider), MTV’s hit show The Shannara Chronicles Season One arrives on DVD June 7, 2016.  Executive produced and written for television by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar (Smallville) and executive produced by Jon Favreau (Iron Man), the lavish fantasy series is based on the 26-volume […]

REVIEW: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

That resulting thud you hear is the disappointing opening weekend numbers for Allegiant, the third part of the four part adaptation of the Divergent trilogy. Its arrival coincides with Lionsgate’s release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 as a Blu-ray Combo Pack. The commercial demands that the final book of a series be […]

REVIEW: The Creeps: The Trolls Will Feast!

The Creeps: The Trolls Will Feast! By Chris Schweizer Amulet, 122 pages, $17.95/$9.95 Last August, Amulet introduced us to Chris Schweizer’s middle school gang The Creeps. Their inaugural appearance, Night of the Frankenfrogs, was packed and didn’t entirely work so I was curious to see how he would deepen the characters or expand their world […]

Glenn Hauman: Should The Never-Ending Battle Have Casualties?

  With the imminent arrival of Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, a lot of the old arguments generated from the previous film are being taken out and argued. Most prominently on one side of the argument is Mark Hughes filing at Forbes, he other is most eloquently represented by Mark Waid, who has the […]

Joe Corallo: Netflix Is Our Friend

Last week, fellow columnist Molly Jackson and I had a conversation about binge watching on Netflix. Specifically about Young Justice, which she wrote about here. The reason it came up was because people have been encouraged to binge watch Young Justice in order to convince Netflix to pick up the show to give it another […]

Amazon Prime Nabs the TARDIS

Variety just broke the news that Amazon Prime has scooped up the exclusive United States rights to as part of a multi-year deal with BBC Worldwide North America. The popular series had been available through Netflix, though that deal expired in February. The deal includes the first eight series of the revived series in addition […]

The Revenant Hits DIgital HD on Tuesday

Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s riveting cinematic masterpiece, THE REVENANT, arrives on Digital HD Tuesday, available on iTunes, Vudu, Mgo, and Google Play. While it’s not a horror title, per se, the film can get pretty gruesome so we purveyors of pop uclture wanted make certain you were aware. Leonardo DiCaprio stars in one of the most talked about […]

Mindy Newell: Marvel Or DC?

The other day I was talking with editor Mike Gold about the political state of our country – Mike and I have marathon conversations about politics – and I asked him if he had seen and/or heard the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland of the D.C. Circuit Court by President Obama for a seat on […]
