Respect to all comic book writers

Great writers are ones whose material can transcend the boundaries of its genre and format, and right now comic book writers are beginning to be recognized for their amazing creativity and talent. Continue reading

Scarlett Johansson the “it” girl of comics

So I don’t know if anyone else has paid attention but with Scarlett Johansson playing Black Widow in the new Iron Man movie she has now officially been in three comic book movies. Continue reading

My two cents

Many of the readers on this site probably know how I feel about the big two companies, like which one is my favorite and which one isn’t.

But for those who don’t know let me tell you.

I grew up loving Marvel, in fact I still am fond for a lot of the characters, started getting into DC late last year now I am more of a DC fan then I am a Marvel one. Continue reading

New Tom Strong Series

Looks like there is a new Tom Strong series being put out from Wildstorm, this of course is news to me the worlds biggest Alan Moore fan. I wonder if Moore has given Wildstorm his blessing for producing the new series, my thoughts are probably not. I will have to look into this a little bit more. Anyways here is a link to Wildstorms blog with a description of the series, the bleed

DC: New Frontier

It is a time period of panic and scare, as the threat of a red invasion looms over the thoughts of American citizens. The red scare has lead to not only the persecution to people working in the movies but also to the heroes who once protected America from evil criminals and meta-human threats. Vietnam brings panic to the citizens and only the two legally active super heroes Superman and Wonder Woman fight against Vietcong to protect America’s freedom. Yet a losing war effort against enemies on foreign soil is not the biggest threat to United States but rather it is mysterious Center. Continue reading

My life thus far

So I haven’t really been posting a lot lately and I am sorry to the few followers I have. However, I just want to say that I am almost done this year with school and should finally get back to reading and writing about comics.

I want to share though what has been going on and some of my thoughts for the blog as well as make my apology.

First, to let everyone know I have been trying to keep up with reading my comics and finally read Darwyn Cooks DC: New Frontier which was awesome. Also I am currently and finally reading DC’s Blackest Night which is probably one of the best event books I have ever read. I was reading Matt Fraction and Ed Brubaker’s Immortal Iron Fist for like a hot second before all of my shenanigans with school and it was looking to be a pretty decent Marvel book until I got distracted.

Reread both of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight books and am excited to hear that All-Star Batman and Robin is going to start back up but under a new banner “Dark Knight:Robin” and is supposed to be a prequel to the two previous Dark Knight books, perhaps we will see how Robin, Dick Grayson, becomes a mutant bent on revenge against Bruce Wayne.

Really excited to hear that Marvel will be releasing some older Marvel Man anthologies, never read the old stuff or really care but this can only mean the Alan Moore/Neil Gaiman stuff is soon to follow.

Waiting for “Y the Last Man Deluxe 3” to come out, probably about to buy “Tom Strong Deluxe vol. 2”, and am considering buying “Scud: The Disposable Assassin the whole Shebang edition”, as well as “Dylan Dog” and “Madman: Gargantua”. I am a little put off by “Madman: Gargantua’s” price tag plus I have never read the comic, but Mike Allred’s art is awesome and the premise sounds amazing.

Some thoughts about the site:

I am considering to expand the content I talk about on this site to broaden my abilities to reach the nerd community. Mostly what I am considering is talking about old cartoons (which is right now the only thing I watch), some sci-fi (whether movies, books or television; although probably more movie’s and television since that is more of what I am interested in), and maybe a slim chance that I throw in a video game review here or there, although I don’t play a lot of games but playing through part of “God of War 3” did manage to spark an interest in them again.

One thing I really want to do with the site is see if I can start receiving press releases from DC and Marvel so that I can also provide a direct source to comic book news instead of re-posting articles from other sites. I also want to work harder at building a community for the site so that I can hopefully convince artists and writers to do interviews, sorry for my Joe Kelly interview for falling through.

Another thing I am hoping to do is get people guest posting on the site, I have asked people before but never a response back but I think it would be fun to get a fresh voice on the site now and again, also it would be cool to get a web comic and a pod cast going but that is certainly at the very bottom of the list of things I want to do.

Finally, I think I might try to post at least once a week for now just so there is stuff going up on the site, but hopefully can return to the six days a week format I was doing when I first started this site.

Wolverine movie sequel

Well if you saw the movie “X-men Origins: Wolverine” then you know that it was a bad, bad film. Well I guess there is a sequel being made. Apparently it is about Wolverine in Japan and falling in love with some woman. This movie is probably going to suck but lets hope not. Things I would like to see would be The Hand and the Silver Samurai, that would be cool but one can only hope.
