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.

The Comic Book Cheat Sheet

Hi everyone I am so sorry to not have posted for a while. I will probably continue to be inconsistent with my posts because I am getting towards the end of my semester and the homework is really starting to get piled on. Hopefully though once summer comes along I will have more time to devote to this blog.

So anyways I am posting up what I like to call the comic book cheat sheet, this is basically for people interested in comic book history and trivia. So here it is. Continue reading

So here I am blogging for the first time in a week, I am wondering what to blog about, yet cannot figure what it should be.

When I was on spring break I pretty much forgot about the world of comics, yes, I did start to read “Super Spy” and “Lost Girls” but these aren’t comics in a traditional sense. They aren’t super heroes but they still are very good and very interesting.

Much of my spring break was spent reading, catching up on the mountain of books I had bought last year and earlier this year as well.

I managed to read two last week the first being “The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay,” and “Freaknomics.” Both were solid reads but the Kavalier & Clay was comic book related.

The book is a high recommendation for anyone who is interested in traditional super hero comics and their history.

I will tease at a review tonight but expect a fuller one later when I have more time.

The basic premise is two Jewish cousins in the 1940’s create a new superhero that is one-part Houdini and one-part Batman, the later superman and so on. The book isn’t so much about the hero but its creators and their lives in and around the comic book industry during WWII.

Good book so check it out.
