I was recently drawn into a thread on Facebook that asked if we thought that the Atom was/is a "B-Lister" character. My EXACT response to this--"I do NOT find the Atom, Hawkman, Hawkwoman, Zatanna, Red Tornado, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Elongated Man, Aquaman or the Martian Manhunter to be ANYTHING but A-Listers!"

Here we are again! It's another year and another Montreal Comiccon! The one weekend of the year where I, your Bleeder King, join my fellow fanboys, geek girls and genre aficionados in my hometown gather together and revel in what makes us awesome! This year is my 5th annual time at the event, so it's quite special! As always I will bring you some of the coolest interviews (I MEAN COOL....I'M NOT KIDDING!) and experiences in the coming weeks! But first, as always, I bring my collection of the finest cosplays I ran into at the con. Everything from comics, to video games to movies were represented and this year I must say, Montreal upped its game with cosplays that were just unbelievable!! Read more...

Yesterday we discussed the first episode in the second annual Flash/Arrow crossover event. We touched on the launching of a new show Legends of Tomorrow featuring the characters Vandal Savage, Hawkgirl and Hawkman – who debuted in the crossover episode named Legends of Today. That episode was a superhero team-up throw down show of historical proportions and we left a lot of the deeper explorations of theme and device on the side to celebrate this great event. Read more...

For 8 weeks now we have systematically breaking down themes and devices contained in the sophomore show if the CW’s Arrowverse wing of the DCTVU. We have examined running parallels between Arrow and Flash, we have discussed themes of trust and family and we have even talked about how this show is the perfect vehicle to setup and launch Legends of Tomorrow in 2016.

“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...

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.

"They made the wrong damn decision!" JSA 1The above quote was uttered by a very disappointed man named Jerry Bails . Bails, a longtime fan of comic books and of the Justice Society in particular was referring to the 1986 " Last Days Of The Justice Society of America " comic book. The book dealt with the elder members of the JSA - The Jay Garrick Flash, the Alan Scott Green Lantern, the Al Pratt Atom, and others, NOT by declaring them as elder statesmen , or by having them as mentors to the younger heroes. (Many interesting stories could have been told with Wally getting advice from Jay Garrick.)  I realize that DC wanted there to be only ONE Flash , ONE Green Lantern, etc. BUT,  these characters deserved respect. They had more than earned it over the many years. The story,  in and of itself,  is passable.  The team, with the JLA - some bearing their names, as well as other teams of super heroes functioning ,  are beginning to feel old and outmoded. The heroes,  at the funeral of the Earth 2's Robin and Huntress (Although Crisis # 12 stated that their bodies were never found, that was quickly changed due to fan speculation. After all, " If you don't SEE a body) are startled by the arrival of a battered Spectre.   Read more...

admin-ajax.phpThis column is actually going to be a review column. Meaning that I am reviewing two books by DC Comics, and will give my usual play by play. This column is also about Lobo. You know the Main Man, Mister Machete, The Ultimate Bastich. He was all the rage back in the 90's, a DC version of Wolverine with a little Punisher thrown in. He ruled the comic book shelves with mini series after mini series and most notably in LEGION and Rebels. My point? Although he started out as a villain, he became DC's biggest anti-hero riding a hog and getting it done, mainly by killing stuff. That is Lobo, a biker who is huge that kills stuff. That said Lobo came back to DC in two separate comic books. In one he is by seeing him in just one page Lobo, the other he some kind of skinny exercise suit wearing...thing...I guess. One of these books is getting a decent rating, the other isn't. Can you guess which one isn't? Lets get started. Read more...
