Superman #52 – The Death of Superman?

By | May 25, 2016

SPOILERS BELOW READ AT YOUR OWN RISK There was a time when all I read  every Superman comics. I made sure never to miss an issue of Adventures of Superman, Action Comics, Man of Steel, and Superman. The 1990’s Death of Superman storyline hit about the time that I was just starting to collect comics,… Read More »

Are Marvel & DC Becoming Comic Book Side Dishes?

By | February 12, 2016

Within the last year or so a lot of food analogies have been used to describe what’s going on in the comic book world. Pizzas smashing together was the analogy used to explain Marvel’s 2015 summer event called Secret Wars. DC’s new direction for 2016 is being described as a meat and potatoes approach to… Read More »

Dark Knight: The Master Race

By | October 3, 2015

I am buying into the hype that Dark Knight: The Master Race is going to be EPIC! At least I hope so. I really, really hope so. In my opinion, DC Comics hasn’t put out out anything intriguing since Grant Morrison’s Multiversity. I didn’t feel Convergence and the DCYou just didn’t do it for me. Now I know that DK… Read More »

Batman: Death in the Family

By | July 31, 2015

In preparation for the Batman vs. Superman (BVS) movie, I read Death in a Family, the Batman story arc that was published in Batman #426 – #429. This story arc is a huge part of Batman history because *spoilers* Jason Todd, the second person to don the Robin costume, dies at the hands of the… Read More »

Crisis on Infinite Earths #5 Review

By | June 24, 2015

In the last issue, it looked like all was lost. The Monitor was killed, worlds exploded into dust, and one of the worst villains in DC history (to read) was still alive, the Psycho-Pirate. In this issue, things get complicated like really, really complicated. Turns out that the Monitor’s essence lived on after he was… Read More »

JLA #1 Controversy 

By | June 20, 2015

It’s time, once again, to piss off the comic book community with an article about the topic of continuity within the funny pages, specifically the funny pages of DC Comics. I’m going to make a bold statement and say that the hardcore comic book fan no longer exists. Heresy you say? No, good sir, I… Read More »

Crisis #4

By | June 13, 2015

As I’ve been re-reading Crisis on Infinite Earths, I have come to appreciate how rich the DC Universe was of characters and worlds. Now, not every character and world was appealing (such as Lord Volt and his Earth) and therefore their ends are not morned. Regardless, the amount of characters that die and worlds that end is… Read More »

Crisis #3

By | June 13, 2015

So far, this has been one of the slower issues of the series, mainly because, it takes place on Earths that I’ve never been that interested in – 1944 Sgt. Rock’s Earth, 1879 Jonah Hex’s Earth, and 13th Century Legion of Superhero’s Earth. Me being impartial to the aforementioned characters and worlds aside, I have… Read More »

Crisis on Infinite Earths Issue #1

By | June 2, 2015

It’s been years since I read Crisis on Infinite Earths (hereafter Crisis) so I thought I’d revisit it after the way Convergence ended. Crisis is credited as the first mini-series event that resulted in a line wide change to a publisher, in this case, DC comics. Since Crisis, DC and other publishers have tried to… Read More »

Frank Cho & Robbi Rodriguez Battle Over The Booty

By | April 11, 2015

Before you read this. If you haven’t already read my post that lead to this follow-up article read it here now. Let me be frank about this Frank Cho/Robbi Rodriguez fiasco regarding the depiction of Spider-Gwen’s booty. Under the surface of this internet blow-out is a bigger issue – men are overly sexualized/portrayed negatively in… Read More »
