It was only a matter of time before I got to this one, right? One of the coolest aspects of comicdom has always been the fact that many of our heroes need spiffy, space-age vehicles to get around in, right? I mean, how else is the Fantastic Four going to get to Latvaria to battle Dr. Doom or the X-Men going to get to wherever the Brotherhood is causing trouble? They need transportation! Over the years there’s been a great amount of vehicles that have come along...and then...not so much. This here’s a list of the coolest of the cool, so don’t expect the Spider-Buggy or the Jokermobile or anything weird like that. Also, the Guardians’ Milano was JUST introduced in the comics, so that didn’t make the cut either! And as always, your favorite may not make the list! My apologies, but you know how hard it is to please EVERYONE! Feel free to air your opinion in the comments section! Read more...

I am Mr. Bronze Age for a reason. That reason is -- I LOVE the Bronze Age of comics!! It is the era in which I grew up and they are the comics of my well spent youth! I still to this day get an elated feeling whenever I come across a book from the Bronze Age era! As I have mentioned several times before in my almost three years of writing this column, I have been trying to reorganize my collection (my collection consists of two storage buildings full of comics plus two rooms in my house that are overflowing with my comics, books, magazines and DVDs).

“It's all well and good painting a montage of characters, or a portrait of a famous person, but if I can tell a story with it then I'll paint it.”   sm9   We’d be lying hear at eXpert Comics if we didn’t all admit to being science fiction and fantasy nerds – it comes with the territory! Of course, this fandom isn’t strictly restricted to comic books; movies, TV, theatre – if it involves the weird, the amazing or the bizarre, chances are you’ll find us there. sm5A lot of this started at an early age and many of us can remember growing up in the sixties, seventies and eighties in the Golden Age of Science Fiction in the cinema and on TV. This was the era of Star Wars, Alien, Knight Rider, Airwolf and the Batman TV show. There was something about them that brought out the best in us and made us believe in talking cars,galaxies far, far away and a Caped Crusader patrolling the streets of Gotham with his young ward (Burt Ward to be precise). I was fortunate enough to meet Solly Mohamed at Geeks Unleashed and was able to take a look at some of his truly outstanding artwork. In each piece, I was transported back to my childhood – there was such an awesome feeling of nostalgia and wonder. It was like being eight years old again! But what Solly really did was to capture the feeling and spirit of the show within each of his pieces. But don’t take my word for it – here’s the man himself! Read more...

rob ark 1Following the Game Informer announcement, Rocksteady Studios have released the first teaser trailer for the next entry in their Batman series of games, Batman: Arkham Knight, which is due for release later this year. Many will remember last year’s effort, Arkham Origins, which acted a prequel to the series. This game saw a younger Batman (only two years into his crusade) encounter many of his rogue’s gallery for the first time; Black Mask, Bane, Killer Croc, Deathstroke and The Joker. This game was handled by Warner Bros. Montreal and, while by no means a bad game, in terms of playability seemed the weaker of the trilogy (Arkham Asylum and Arkham City preceded this release). The story, in my opinion, was the strongest and allowed for an interesting take on The Joker which made him particularly sinister in a way not since the stellar performance of Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.   Read more...

batmobilesTo many (me included) the Batmobile is THE iconic mode of transportation. I know some will say the Millinium Falcon, the Mach 5, or whatever else that may come up, but to me it's all about the Batmobile. When the first run of Batman movies came out in the 90's one of the most important things to most fans was how the Batmobile would look. When they made that neon, glowing phallic symbol of a Batmobile in Batman Forever, the fans went nuts (and for good reason), but the point is as important as Batman is the Batmobile isn't far behind him. That got me to thinking about the history or the car, which led to a No Prize question where I found out that 5 replica's were made of the iconic 1960 Batmobile. That in turn led me to a judges decision that people should not build Batmobile replicas (WHAT?). Which led to this. If you can't build a replica of a Batmobile what can you build and what would it look like. WOW is the word for what I found. Hmmmm although not a word is yet another thing to say when looking at some of these. What I came up with is either the most ingenious looking Batmobiles of all time, or the flat out worst looking Batmobiles of all time! That will be for you to decide. Without further ado here they are....Top 8 almost Batmobiles.   Read more...

Apparently, this time of year is notorious for people making lists – especially a guy in a red suit, or so I’m told. *firing up the generators…* We have to check them twice and find out if... Yeah, you get the idea. *tachyons accelerating…* Making lists is part of my job as a journalist. *configuring…* It makes it easier to find a topic and often topics evolve naturally from them. *broadcasting in 3..2..1..* The Monsters column evolved from one such list as did the Champions series (on hiatus, not forgotten!) So this week comes the turn of some of science fictions finest creations – may they travel in miles, warp or time. Part of the fun of sci-fi is to be able to dream up ways in which we get from A to B and sometimes C often going via E and back again. The more outlandish the better! .......BEGIN TRANSMISSION.......

DXXL | Here we are at the half way point in November, for Americans Turkey Day is only a couple weeks away. Thanksgiving here consists of stuffing yourself as well as a bird until you both almost choke on it and watching the parades. I don't like parades, never have, they are just for me a waste of time watching things go down the street. I can do that from my front porch and most times it's more interesting. Read more...

Mmm Beep Beep, Mmm Beep Beep Yeah So this has been a long week but TurnTable Thursday features yours truly now. To start out with I had an unwanted visitor on my computer, and I have been in the car for most of the week traveling. It doesn’t really matter where I was and am going, what matters is it gives me a lot of time to think. So what does a DXXL think about while traveling? I think about comic books! In particular I think about what it would be like to be driving some of the cool vehicles from the comic books and cartoons. There have been a ton of signature vehicles in the comic book and cartoon mediums. Read more...
