“What is the one super power you wish you could have?” is probably a question I have been asked a million times. It’s maybe the most asked question that people ask someone who spends their life surrounded by superhero comics, movies, etc. Well, I personally say telekinesis, because when you can move things with your mind, you can do most of the things other powers allow you to do (also, you never have problems reaching anything or asking someone to get something for you ever again in your life...something I would love). But I think most peoples’ answer is “to fly”, right? Read more...

So, I’m a fan of hip hop music. I grew up listening to Biggie, Tupac and the Wu-Tang Clan. And everyone in between. I don’t often get a chance to write about that love on a geek/pop culture website...but sometimes I’m able to sneak it in there. One of the coolest songs Notorious B.I.G. ever wrote was the “Ten Crack Commandments”, where Big basically...well...lists his simple rules for being a drug dealer. Not saying it’s the right thing to write a song about...but whatever. It is what it is. And what it is is one of the best written hip hop songs of all time, in my opinion. Read more...

A hundred years is a long time! In 1915, there were many major events of note: The President was Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat who was keeping the US out of the World War in Europe. The British Ocean Liner, the Lusitania, was sunk by a German submarine (1,195 people lost their lives.128 of those were American citizens). Filmmaker D.W.Griffith released "Birth Of A Nation", and Boston Red Socks won the World Series. It was into this turbulent world, on June 19th of 1915, that a baby was born who would grow up to have a tremendous and lasting impact on the world of fandom, and the world of comic books! The baby's name was Julius "Julie" Schwartz. June 19th of 2015 would have been Schwartz' ONE HUNDRETH birthday, and it is hard to imagine how different the world of comics (and of fandom in general) would have been had he not existed.

If any type of comic book was going to be the subject of Game Changers, it was going to be an event series. One of the first notable ‘events’ in comics was Marvels Secret Wars in which many key players within the publishers stable were transported to Battleworld by the Beyonder and were given free reign to take on one another in a fight to death in order to prove who was the greatest. In terms of sales, Secret Wars was undoubtedly a hit – it offered fans many of their favourites together in one place in a way that they’d never imagined – but critically, it floundered slightly due to massive inconsistencies across the board. However, Secret Wars set the benchmark for what event comics were to become – sprawling story arcs, epic in scale and concept, that would cross-pollinate characters from many different titles and bring them together in the battle against an enemy or situation that would require all their skills in order to survive. The format had been laid out and, with some exceptions, has remained that way until today. Read more...

I have been reading the final issues of comics taking place in Marvels 616 Universe. As most of my readers probably know by now, Marvel Comics is following suit from what DC did a few years ago and rebooting their universe after the big blockbuster Secret Wars (technically it’s Secret Wars 4, if you count Bendis’ “Secret War”), and most of the long run and over 70 years of continuity will be (probably) flushed away. I’ve been pretty vocal on how I don’t think reboots are actually the way to do things, in fact, I wrote an entire column on how this was a bad idea. But anyhoo, none of that matters anymore. It’s happening, and the continuity of the comic book company I’ve stood by and loved my entire life is basically going kaput. As I was reading the final issue of Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers run, I was pretty bummed out on how things were ended: Iron Man and Captain America basically fighting like infantile school kids while their world gets decimated. THIS is how you end 7 decades of heroism and teamwork between two amazing and celebrated heroes? By having them act like....well...selfish douchebags? Read more...

sollicitations-DC-juin-12Well, the big buzz this week in comics was the announcement that after their next big event, Convergence, DC Comics is going to be making some BIG aesthetic changes to some of their most popular characters. And I'm talking BIG. HUGE. MEGA. SHOCKING...freakin' weird....CHANGES! Didn't they already DO this like not 4 years ago?! YES! THEY DID! TOTALLY! Is rebooting trendy? YES! IT IS! TOTALLY! Do they need to keep doing this every few years to maintain sales and stay relevant and keep columnists and bloggers like myself talking about them? THEY OBVIOUSLY THINK SO! And I can't help but give them exactly what they want. Because some of these costumes are so freaking drastic that I just can't stay silent anymore. I'm gonna stop and give my thoughts on all of the announced revamps that are happening post-Convergence. It's time, DC. Let's have a chat, bro. Read more...

“This is your birthright, Arthur.” throneSince the credits rolled on Justice League: War and we saw Ocean Master ominously rise from beneath the surface of the waves, this has been the DC animated movie I’ve been waiting for. Throne of Atlantis is still arguably one of my favourite Justice League stories of all time and definitely one of my top events of the New 52. Here we saw Aquaman divided between the people he chose to save and those who he calls family. Orm took all his pent up aggression and rage and directed it towards the surface world as the result of a misunderstanding of monumental proportions and the League were called upon to set things right. There was a distinct lack of any mention of Arthur Curry in DC’s first venture in the animated universe of the New 52 in Justice League: War or any of the following movies but with good reason. Throne of Atlantis is effectively ‘Aquaman Begins’; bringing about a new animated origin story for the King of the Seven Seas. Read more...
