Box Office Democracy: Gifted

I feel like I never see movies like Gifted anymore.  Gifted is a smaller movie, almost completely devoid of the spectacle that snobs complain about in modern cinema.  It’s as anonymous a movie as one can get from the director of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, the star of Captain America and Octavia Spencer.  It’s funny […]

Tweeks: 3 Minute Review Underworld Blood Wars

This week Maddy gives a quick 3-min review of Underworld Blood Wars which is now available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes and will released on DVD and Blu-ray April 25, 2017. With the war between lycans and vampires still chugging along, it’s up to death dealer Selene (Kate Beckinsale) to put an […]

Dennis O’Neil: Invisible!

I was in what must have been a vast desert. I pivoted in the sand and looked in every direction. Nothing but sand – sand and overhead a brutal, merciless sun. Was I lost or stranded? And how did I get here? “Hi, handsome,” a throaty female voice said from behind my left shoulder, I […]

Mike Gold: Wish I Could Fly Like Superman

Hey girl we’ve got to get out of this place, there’s got to be something better than this I need you, but I hate to see you this way. If I were Superman then we’d fly away. I’d really like to change the world and save it from the mess it’s in, I’m too weak, […]

Joe Corallo: An Open Letter To Marvel Entertainment

To Marvel Entertainment, Last week I read X-Men Gold #1 and, controversy aside which I won’t be getting into as you have gone above and beyond to address the issue properly and professionally, it really invoked a lot of strong feelings in me. Because of that, I’d like to talk about the X-Men and what […]

Ed Catto: Michael Eury’s Hero-A-Go-Go!

I recently covered a mini-trend of fascinating and well-researched books lovingly that looked back at goofy super-heroes here. Now that we’re on the cusp of the debut of one of these books, Hero-A-Go-Go, it’s time to take a deeper dive. I cornered author Michael Eury and asked all those questions that I’ve been dying to […]

Win a Copy of Split on Blu-ray

James McAvoy showed news aspects of his talent in M. Night Shyamalan’s return to scary filmmaking with Split. The film, which took the box office crown in January, is coming to Blu-ray on April 18 and we have a copy to give away to a lucky reader. Courtesy of Universal Home Entertainment, we’ll give you an […]

Mindy Newell: This Is My Country

“This is my country, Land of my birth, This is my country, Grandest on Earth “This is my country, Land of my choice, This is my country, Hear my proud voice. “I pledge thee my allegiance, America the bold, For this is my country, To have and to hold” This Is My Country (1940), Dan […]

John Ostrander: No Trespassing

My Mary will sometimes pop into the office to chat a bit. If I’m just goofing off (a lot of my work day consists of goofing off), that’s fine but if I’m actually working she has to leave. She understands and doesn’t take offense; she can get the same way when she’s creating. I don’t […]

Marc Alan Fishman: Are Comics Shops Intimidating?

How do we earn new fans of comic books? Not comics characters, mind you. Long before he could recognize them immediately on a page, my son learned about the Avengers via movies, Batman via cartoon shows, and Spider-Man via his pajamas. As he and my younger son grow up, they will no doubt be immersed […]

National Geographic has provided us with two clips culled from the disc’s bonus features. Clip: Behind the Scenes with Ron Howard  Clip: How To Get To Mars – Landing Safely on Mars  Special […]

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #406

CHICAGO JUSTICE JUSTICE NOT BELIEVABLE Between the Law & Order franchise, the Chicago franchise, and the ill-conceived, even ill-advised, attempt to revive Dragnet without Jack Webb, Dick Wolf may be responsible for more hours of television that I haven’t watched than Susan Lucci. I know he’s created and produced some of the most popular shows on TV, but I […]

Martha Thomases: Liverpool To Waypoint – Tiwary Strikes Again!

Vivek Tiwary has been my friend for more than 15 years. We met through mutual friends, and bonded initially over rock’n’roll and cancer. Immediately, I thought he was one of the coolest people I’d ever met. These are some of the things Vivek has done: Broadway producer (of A Raisin in the Sun, American Idiot, […]

Tweeks at WonderCon 2017

WonderCon is Anya’s favorite Con, so even though we were previously committed last weekend to attend the California State Thespian Festival, we made sure to at least stop by the Anaheim Convention Center on the way home. We had to turn down a bunch of interviews and couldn’t even attend any panels (not even the […]

Dennis O’Neil: The Ethereal Being and The Invisible Woman

Before we mention Invisible Scarlet O’Neil, let’s expend a few words on an ethereal being – maybe that should be Ethereal Being – who dwells in some vast realm beyond the clouds: Zion. The Ethereal Being I refer to is called an editor and he is a veritable creature of Gold. Last year, when Americans […]

Michael Davis: Not The American Dream

When I was eight years old, I was racing my new Tonka toy truck up and down the concrete sidewalk on my block. I was doing so by bending over and pushing the truck as fast as I could with both hands. The truck slipped out of my hand, and my momentum carried me quite […]

Mike Gold: Truth, Justice, and Hysteria

I guess Marvel senior vice president David Gabriel has had a bad week. In case you haven’t heard – perhaps you were in solitary confinement – at the Marvel Retailer Summit Gabriel said that some retailers have told him that they “did not want female superheroes out there.” I have no doubt this is true: […]

Box Office Democracy: Ghost in the Shell

I’m sort of curious why Dreamworks even wanted to pay for the rights to make a Ghost in the Shell movie if they weren’t particularly interested in doing anything with the property they acquired. They seemed interested in making a cyberpunk movie, a cyberpunk movie about a badass lady android with some identity issues. I’m […]

Joe Corallo: Diversity, Big and Small

Saying a lot happened in the world of comics this past week is a gross understatement. Between MoCCA Fest in the east, WonderCon in the west, the poor performance of the Ghost In The Shell live action remake, and the reports coming out of the Marvel Retailer Summit, I could have column fodder well into […]
