New Love Found at Cosplay Deviants

Amber Love’s first  Wonder Woman set went live last night at CosplayDeviants.com! Please check it out and add your comments letting her know what you liked.

Area Man and the Marvel Universe

I wonder how many of us this actually describes. Hmm. Anyway, check in with comments if this is you: “We’re from Sweden or Norway or somewhere around there,” said Sundling, who when prompted can accurately detail the origins of each cartoon member of the X-Men, the Avengers, the Defenders, and the Squadron Supreme. “I don’t […]

Pulp Cocktails and a Furnace exclusive drink!

From Comics-Alliance dot com comes this piece. It’s refreshing that someone thought our superheroes should return to the Golden Age where the same tenets that apply in the AMC show “Mad Men” apply in Gotham, Metropolis and elsewhere. That said, there’s something amiss here and it’s this: contemplate all you like, but there would be […]

Computer technology has finally come of age and allowed filmmakers and the two big comic book houses to have their characters and stories to be portrayed on the silver screen. Plus, in the last 10 years under the tutelage of folks like Joe Quesada […]

Tim Burton’s 9 – Guest Review

Easy, fanboys (including me), light’s on the horizon

Comic artist Jim Lee retweeted this, but it bears a full look. Many of us had our assumptions about the Disney/Marvel deal based on what little empirical andanecdotal datas were available at the time. I’d guess 99 percent of that came from media sources like iMDB, CNNMoney and elsewhere. So, this column connects some other […]

Comic Book Review: We Kill Monsters #1

Secret hideout. Check. A mission to save a family member’s life? Check. Monsters? Check. Monster trucks? Ya know it. Hooked? Yep. Me, too. “We Kill Monsters” is great.  I just finished reading the debut issue, though it originally appeared in May 2009. The comic is published by Red 5 Comics. I read my copy on […]
