Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier

I had something like five hundred words typed about this book — pretty much the whole post — but I deleted it instead of cut-and-pasting, and then saved over the place I was typing it. So I’m not going to try to recreate that thought process: it’s too frustrating to contemplate. Instead, I’ll run through […]

iZombie: The Complete Third Season Completes CW Disc Releases

BURBANK, CA (June 13, 2017) Prepare for more brainy adventures as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings iZOMBIE: The Complete Third Season to DVD on October 3, 2017. From executive producers Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars, 90210, Party Down) and Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars, The Ex List), The CW’s hit series, that nearly two million people are […]

REVIEW: The Lego Batman Movie

I fondly recall the purity of Lego, refusing to license media properties, preferring to keep their toys pristine and unique. Eventually, the opportunity for expanding their line was too tempting and they introduce first one, then another, and now a flood of media properties to their toys allowing you build everything from the Batcave to […]

Joe Corallo: A Superhero Mockumentary

Before I jump into this week’s column, I wanted to touch on Iceman #1 since I’ve mentioned it so many times prior to its release last Wednesday. It was a solid first issue and I really love how Sina Grace handled the dynamic between Bobby Drake and his parents. Give it a shot if you […]

REVIEW: John Wick Chapter 2

We’ve seen one man versus an army and a man who wants to retire only to be dragged back to the fight. It’s a staple of storytelling and modern cinema so it all comes to down the execution. In fall 2014, audiences were introduced to the latest character in this celebrated model: John Wick. A […]

Mindy Newell: Wonder Woman? Okay, I’ll Chime In!

Well, everybody else here is talking about Wonder Woman, so I guess it’s my turn. Caution: there may be S-P-O-I-L-E-R-S ahead! (Especially my sixth bullet, below.) It’s been said before, and I’ll say it again. Gal Gadot is to WW as Christopher Reeve was to Superman. Her portrayal of the Amazon leaves an indelible print […]

Ed Catto: Fight Like a Girl

It’s a good time to fight like a girl. The new Wonder Woman movie is a big hit. Everyone from Billy Tucci to my mom seems to like it. Fox News managed to complain about the level of patriotism in the movie, but whatever; every party needs a pooper. I thought it was great fun, […]

John Ostrander: Crossed Lines

So, Bill Maher crossed the line and got himself into hot water. Given the nature of his HBO show, Real Time, and his own proclivities as a satirist, maybe he should just have a hot tub on stage instead of a desk. It would suit him in many ways. Recently, as part of an interview, […]

Longmire Season 5 Heads for Home in September

  Yeah, we know it’s not a genre show, even if it does star Katee Sackhoff. But, we think it’s an underrated, excellent drama worthy of your attention. BURBANK, CA (June 7, 2017) – Caught in the crosshairs of a wrongful-death civil suit and facing a betrayal of two of his closest allies, Sheriff Walt […]

Adam West: 1928-2017

Adam West, an actor defined and also constrained by his role in the 1960s series “Batman”, died Friday night in Los Angeles at the age of 88 after a short battle with leukemia. For many people in the comics community and the world beyond, West’s portrayal of the Caped Crusader was the first version of […]

Marc Alan Fishman: It Ain’t Over ‘Till The Fat Guy Sings

OK, more like 2/3rds, but that’s being picky, no? Let me be blunt: as much as I shamelessly self-promote Unshaven Comics, The Samurnauts, and any wares for which I am able to shill, patting myself on the back honestly is uncomfortable territory. This week, I’m letting my guard down in a way that frankly I’m […]

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #412

FLASH DRINKS SOME MILK OF AMNESIA How do research labs in comic book or science fiction universes or, in this case, the TV show The Flash stay in business? Given that their experimental default setting seems to be catastrophe, how can they afford their insurance premiums? To no one’s surprise, an experiment in the Central City […]

Martha Thomases: The Wonder Woman Recognition

The Wonder Woman of my youth was a fairly ridiculous character, whose adventures included less fighting and more romantic entanglements, not only with Steve Trevor but also a merman and a bird boy. She was no more a feminist icon to me than Supergirl, Betty or Veronica, but then, I was a child and there […]

Tweeks Discuss Wonder Woman

Warning Spoilers! It’s more than a review this week because we just have so much to say about Wonder Woman. Not only is it Tweeks Approved, but we had to reorder our Chrises.

Dennis O’Neil: The Sensation and Me

As I sit here, Wonder Woman is wowing ‘em about a mile away to the north, at the Palisades 21-Plex where you can see a movie (or 21 movies?) and then visit the lots and lots of stores nearby in the five-floor mall and shop until your brain congeals. I guess that if I were […]

Warner Opens Online Wonder Woman Store

With Warner’s Wonder Woman movie garnering excellent reviews, earning big box office, and resetting expectations for female-led features,  everyone wants to be an Amazon princess. In celebration of the most empowered and unstoppable heroine of the DC Universe, Warner has opened up an online store, packed with a treasure trove of Wonder Woman gear, stocked with […]

Box Office Democracy: Baywatch

The best part of Baywatch was that everyone on screen seemed completely invested in making it a good movie.  It isn’t a good movie— it isn’t even particularly close to being a good movie— but the cast is willing to push as hard as they can to make it better.  Baywatch is elevated from the […]

Apes honored as Chimps are aided by Jane Goodall Institute

In honor of the upcoming release of War for the Planet of the Apes, 20th Century Fox has partnered with the Jane Goodall Institute to provide care for rescued chimpanzees, many of whom are victims of the illegal commercial bushmeat and pet trades. Housed and cared for on three forested island sanctuary sites and a […]

Mike Gold: Wonder Woman – Fox News Loses Its Shit!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Our planet is being strangled to death by morons, at least one-quarter of all Americans think Vlad Putin’s interference with our elections and our economy is absolutely swell, comedians are being persecuted for making errors in judgment, people can’t afford even basic health care, an increasing percentage of our […]
