New Who Review – “Death in Heaven”

When there’s no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth.  As Cybermen.  See what he did there?  The Master is back, and has been working on this plot for QUITE a long time. Some old friends return for the fight, we say goodbye (for now, anyway) to some others, and oh goodness, […]

John Ostrander 2.0

Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. Better than he was before. Better… stronger… faster. – The Six Million Dollar Man So – where were we? I’d had a 7 mm. golden nugget lodged in my right kidney. That got removed but then I went into the hospital with sepsis and acute urinary […]

Adam West Discusses His Favorite Bat-Episode

The countdown to the release of Batman: The Complete Television Series is at three days. Tuesday, November 11, sees the  arrival of the mostly wanted DVD set for comic book fans this millennium. In anticiaption, Warner Home Entertainment has released this clip from one of the bonus features, as Adam West recounts his favorite episode. […]

Marc Alan Fishman: Dear Marvel and DC…

Dear Marvel and DC, It’s been too long since I’ve written you, and for that I am very sorry. I’d think it awkward, given that I was once a weekly reviewer of your monthly publications, but I’ve essentially all but given up on them over the last six months. And it’s not because of financial […]


Let’s see now, where were we before we were so rudely interrupted? Interrupted by me when I realized last week’s column was long enough, so decided to split it into two columns. Oh yes, She-Hulk V 3 # 9. She-Hulk v 3 # 9 is Part Two of the three-part story, “The Good Old Days.” […]

The Point Radio: CRISTELA and MARRY ME Make TV Comedy Magic

This season, some of the first cancellation casualties have been situation comedies, but beyond the cast offs there are two shows which have made their marks in ratings. Stand up superstar, Cristela Alonzo, brought much of her charm and her act to CRISTELA and she explains why it was so important for her to keep it […]

REVIEW: Sing No Evil

Sing No Evil By JP Ahonen and KP Alare Abrams ComicArts, 181 pages, $24.95 Translating music, meant to be heard live, and print, meant to be imagined in one’s mind, is a challenging task. When the music is heavy metal, a very visceral sort of sound, the challenge is even harder. As a result, artist […]

Martha Thomases: Would Batman Drive A Ford?

In a story in the business section of Monday’s New York Times, there was a discussion of product placement in self-published (or small publisher-published) e-books. Naturally, my first thought was, How can this be applied to comics? First, let me start with a few definitions. There is a difference between product placement, such as having […]

REVIEW: Hercules

When your father is a god, your life is bound to be pretty interesting. As a result, it is never less than astonishing how often the story of Hercules ignores the rich source material, transplanting the demigod to whatever environment is currently in vogue with diminished results. Twice this year, we were treated to variant […]

Tweeks: Fragile Delights!

Even though this month has brought The Tweeks sickness, they are still super excited about November.  You won’t find Maddy & Anya pushing an early Christmas (Snowflake red cups on Halloween, seriously, Starbucks?) but you will find them celebrating what is currently making them happy— stuff like the new Marvel movies announcement, the spoiler about […]

Box Office Democracy: “Nightcrawler”

It’s been a long time since I’ve gone to a movie as cold as I did for Nightcrawler. I hadn’t seen a trailer or even had it described to me. I think I’d seen a poster but it wasn’t terribly clear what kind of movie I was getting in to even as the lights went […]

Dennis O’Neil: Television Is Sacred

Well, I predicted it. Mari and I sat in the living room until about nine, and then she turned out a front light and we returned to our sacred duty, watching television. Before we continue… You’re vexed by that last statement? Teevee watching a sacred duty? Eh? Okay, consider: Almost beyond doubt there is a […]

Box Office Democracy: Avengers trailer, Constantine (TV)

Hi everyone, I’m moving this weekend and didn’t have a lot of spare time to spend doing activities that weren’t packing so we have something a little different for you this week.  Here’s a review of a much shorter cinematic experience and a TV show based on a comic that once had a movie based on […]

REVIEW: How to Train Your Dragon 2

How to Train Your Dragon was an immensely successful adaptation of Cressida Cowell’s charming children’s book. The story ended nicely and had we never revisited the village of Berk, we would have been satisfied. However, in film, success demands milking the cow as far as audiences allow so we now have a sequel. Unlike so […]

Mike Gold: The Fifth of November

This is a special day at La Casa del Oro. It’s my daughter’s birthday. Adriane Nash, also a ComicMixer (if you wonder how she got that job, I strongly suspect years and years of working at and managing comic book stores played a significant part), turns… ah, it’s not my place to say. But she’s […]

101 Dalmatians Gets Diamond Edition Treatment in February

Pongo, Perdita and their super-adorable puppies are in for thrills, hilarious spills and an epic action-packed adventure when they face off with Cruella De Vil, Disney’s most fabulously outrageous villainess.

Your Guide to the Owning the Keys to the Batcave

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) sets a new standard for accommodating Bat-fans from the uber-avid to caped-casual with the upcoming release of Batman: The Complete Television Series on November 11, 2014. The most anticipated home entertainment release of all time will be available in several distinct packaging choices with varying content and bonus materials. These […]

Michael Davis: The Milestone Contract

As luck would have it I now know why I’m not mentioned as a co-creator of Static, although I created the Static universe from my own life story. I’ve just found the original Static Shock TV deal Milestone did with Warner Bros. and it explains everything. Here, in its entirety, is the 1993 Milestone television […]

The Point Radio: Gavin MacLeod’s TV Love Affair

From classic character roles to MARY TYLER MOORE to the bridge of THE LOVE BOAT, Gavin MacLeod has entertained TV audiences for decades and his stint as Captain Stubbing is one he is especially proud of. Gavin talks about his favorite moments on the show and why it is so beloved even today. Plus we […]

REVIEW: The Newsroom The Complete Second Season

We’re now in the first sweeps period of the current television season and its fair to say that while several new series are entertaining, few are measuring up to our increased expectations. As a result, it’s refreshing to see that in one week, one of the smartest shows is returning albeit for a truncated final […]
