For the second time this week I have the pleasure of reviewing the initial episode of a second story arc for the season in an episodic DC/WB show on the CW. If you missed my Flash review, feel free to read it here on site as well. So far Season 4 of Arrow has made a point to rectify its tone from last season, that was more Batman than Green Arrow as far as characterization and in tone far darker than most Green Arrow has ever been. This year began with Oliver and Felicity in coupled bliss and has intentionally labored to get lighter and more like its comic counterpart. Read more...

When it comes to haunting, dark artwork that almost looks like it should be hung up in a museum somewhere, the comics industry turns to Mr. Jae Lee. A 20+ year vetran in the industry, Jae has worked on it all from Wolverine to WildC.A.T.S to Stephen King's Dark Tower to his monumental run on the New 52 reboot of Batman/Superman. Jae has become one of the comic industry's top talents and most enthrallic and unique artists in a long time! I had the chance to catch up with Jae at Montreal ComicCon and have a talk about his start, his run on Batman/Superman and more! I could have talked with Jae forever, but it was the last 5-10 minutes of the con day and he was about to pack up! But he was so awesome he granted me this interview anyway!  Check it out! Read more...

wildstorm-logoGifted Readers, I’m back after a mid-fall break in which the Prof began a new and prosperous adventure. However, in my return this week I must step to the podium to pay my respects for a once proud, strong and viable imprint and comics universe unto itself. You see, it has come to my attention that the WildStorm Universe may have finally met what is arguably its timely demise with the forthcoming and quietly announced cancellation of Stormwatch in early 2014. The breadth of WildStorm’s contribution to the industry couldn’t hope to be covered in one little 1200-word article, but I’ll try to do it some justice here. This, my friends, is a eulogy in the wake of WildStorm’s apparent demise. I chose the word abates for the title specifically for its definitions: 1. to deduct or subtract; 2. to diminish in intensity.  My personal opinion is that WildStorm’s slow, agonizing death began the moment creator, artist and sometimes writer Jim Lee gave his babies up to DC Comics/Time Warner in 1998 (effective January 1999), an acquisition situation similar to historical assimilations involving DC purchasing intellectual properties from Fawcett Comics, Quality Comics and Charlton Comics several decades ago. From my observations of the evidence it is my conclusion is that DC Comics, known primarily for its legacy superheroes (and fringe alternative imprint Vertigo), simply lacked the moxie for handling and ultimately integrating the WildStorm Universe characters into their own mainstream shared universe of action and superheroes. Having surveyed many die-hard WildStorm fans across social media, I am a mixture of glad and sad to see that I am not alone in my skewed view of the post-DC years.   Read more...

68-YsNb9.AuSt.55If you come to the page often or not you know we are big on retro. I myself have done more than a couple dozen retro's while I have been part of the ENR Team. If you read my columns you know besides my family and YHWH, my two other great loves are comic books (and all that deals with them), and baseball. Now this is where is gets just a little more complicated. I grew up in NW PA, I live almost the exact amount of time and miles from Pittsburgh and Cleveland. My Dad played minor league ball for the Cleveland Indians and to this day I am a fan of them. That said they didn't have Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, Bob Robertson, Manny Sanguillen, Doc Ellis or Steve Blass. Yep I'm a Pirate fan! From my childhood until now I have bled black and gold during baseball season. Read more...

wolverine121So, with everyone’s favorite hairy Canadian making his rounds once again in theaters (the movie is great, go check it out!), I realized it was time to dust off the ‘ol Dave’s Definitive column and bring to you, my faithful Bleederz, the DD to end all DD’s! I make no adamantium-laced bones about it. I freaking love Wolverine. Ever since I was a wee lad, this character was the ideal cool superhero...and that opinion never left me. Seeing this character in my old X-Men Classics fighting the likes of Proteus and The Brood with his blood soaked claws and tough guy demeanor was all I needed. Logan showed me at a young age that superheroes could look a lot like villains and still be the good guys, and looks can definitely be deceiving. Read more...
