Truth, justice, and the comics

Joe Corallo: Iron Miss

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 12:00:15 +0000

This past week I finished watching Iron Fist. I also went to a discussion at Manhattan’s Strand bookstore on queer representation in comics, with speakers including Jennifer Camper and Phil Jimenez, but I really want to focus on Iron Fist. Well, I checked out some of the old MST3K episodes they just added to Netflix […]

REVIEW: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 17:36:35 +0000

J.K. Rowling did a superb job creating her magical universe, populating it worldwide with schools, wizards, prisons, creatures, and muggles aplenty. She also gave her world a rich history and then has been mining it with spinoff works of varying lengths and media. One of the more popular has been Fantastic Beasts and Where to […]

Mindy Newell: “Flash” Dance

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 17:00:14 +0000

I grew up on Broadway musicals. Once upon a time when going to see a show on Broadway didn’t cost you your mortgage plus the life of your first-born, my mom and dad were avid theatergoers. They saw the original production of South Pacific with Mary Martin and Ezio Pinza, the original production of Camelot […]

Ed Catto Was Kidnapped by Comic Shop Retailers!

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 12:00:03 +0000

They say what happens in Vegas should stay in Vegas, but in this week’s column I’m going to let the proverbial cat out of the bag. As you may recall from last week, I was recently in Las Vegas at the GAMA trade show convention. This annual gathering is designed to help game store owners […]

John Ostrander: My Secret Origin Story

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 12:00:46 +0000

Tomorrow I’m supposed to have what is called a nuclear stress test – checking on the old ticker – during which they introduce a nuclear particle into my blood stream and then will track it. According to comic book physics, this should result in my gaining a super-power or two. So I’ve been considering what […]

Marc Alan Fishman: What DC Could Learn from Logan

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 12:00:55 +0000

Having finally caught and absorbed James Mangold’s Logan, the finale to the OG X-films, I find myself hoping that the execs behind the soon-to-be-released Wonder Woman and Justice League movies were taking notes. A caveat: I’m going to attempt to keep my lens wide this week. While I don’t believe I’ll be spoiling anything more […]

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #404

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 17:42:10 +0000

THE SHOW WAS DUMB NO DOUBT ABOUT IT I feel like staying far away from Civil War II this week. How far away? I’m not even writing about comic books. That far. Doubt was another attempt to do a Shonda Rhimes style show without Shonda Rhimes. CBS tried to hedge its bets by having former Grey’s Anatomy Katherine Heigl headline […]

Martha Thomases: Iron Fist and America’s Original Sin

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 12:00:23 +0000

If racism is America’s original sin, it’s not surprising that racial issues hold such a central place in our popular entertainments. It also affects our response to these entertainments. Especially mine, and especially this weekend. It started with a semi-binge of the Iron Fist, the new Marvel Television series on Netflix. All sorts of people […]

Tweeks SuperFlash Duet

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 18:30:00 +0000

Musicals are life. And while we weren’t exactly caught up on both Supergirl and The Flash (though we’re told we really need to do that), we couldn’t miss the SuperFlash crossover event. Especially not with Broadway talents like Darren Criss, Jeremy Jordan, John Barrowman, Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber and Glee alums Melissa Benoist & […]

Vin Diesel’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage comes home May 2

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 17:19:12 +0000

  HOLLYWOOD, Calif.  – Hailed as “a crazy, stunt-filled action spectacular” (Scott Mendelson, Forbes) and “a shot of pure adrenaline” (Joey Nolfi, Entertainment Weekly), xXx: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE x-plodes on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand May 16, 2017 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.  X-cited fans can be […]

Dennis O’Neil: Authority Figures Are Often Full Of…

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 12:00:27 +0000

Pay attention now. There’s a lesson to be learned here today and you should believe what I’m about to write, but we’ll get to that later… after we produce some evidence. Here’s the lesson – in italics to emphasize its importance: Authority figures are often full of shit. I’m not saying all authority figures are […]

DC Super Hero Girls gets Original Film in May

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 22:14:20 +0000

  BURBANK, CA (March 10, 2017) – Class is back in session at Super Hero High as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment bring you DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games, the second feature in the new, groundbreaking universe celebrating young girls! The Intergalactic Games are here and Super Hero High is facing off […]

Box Office Democracy: The Belko Experiment

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:59:53 +0000

I saw two different kinds of ads for The Belko Experiment before it came out.  There were ads that were pitching it as a more or less straight up horror movie, and then there were ads that were selling it as a kind of comedy-horror hybrid.  It used a quote from an early review saying […]

Mike Gold: Snappy Skippy Williamson

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 12:00:40 +0000

In this space two weeks ago, I wrote about the death of cartoonist and comix legend Jay Lynch. I noted his half-century friendship with Skip Williamson; despite their physical distance, I don’t think two people could have been closer. As fate would have it, Skip died eleven days after Jay. Each was 72 years old. […]

Michael Davis: Weekend Without Bernie

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 17:00:51 +0000

This past weekend a giant of entertainment left us. Chuck Berry was 90 years old, and I must admit I would from time to time wonder if Little Richard, Chubby Checker or Chuck were still with us. I’ve not only had the pleasure of meeting each of these legends, I spent time with them. I […]

Joe Corallo: Rebirth of an I-CON

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 12:00:06 +0000

This past weekend I found myself at a convention once again with Molly Jackson, but now joined by ComicMix’s own Glenn Hauman. It was an island getaway. Sure, it was Long Island, but it was still technically a getaway so I’m sticking to it. The convention in question was I-CON, and no, it is not […]

Mindy Newell: What Is Human?

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 17:00:23 +0000

Death has been everywhere lately this March of 2017. Actor Bill Paxton. Rock and Roll pioneer Chuck Berry. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Jimmy Breslin. The great artist Bernie Wrightson. Underground comics’ Jay Lynch and Skip Williamson. ComicMix’s Tweeks Maddy and Anya Ernst’s grandmother. Fellow columnist Marc Alan Fishman’s college friend. My dad. As Martha […]

Ed Catto: GAMA – Rolling the Dice, Vegas Style!

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 12:00:12 +0000

When you think of a comic shop or a card store, you might think of the fans who shop there or the folks who run it and how they are so passionate about the things they love. Retail shops like these are always the epicenter for focused geek authenticity. And when you think of Las […]

John Ostrander: A-FForde-able Care Acts

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 12:00:49 +0000

I’m hesitant to outright recommend almost anything – books, movies, music, TV shows, and so on. Invariably someone acts on my recommendation, doesn’t like it, and blames me for the waste of their time and/or money. “It sucks, Ostrander”, they say, “and so do you!” However, from time to time I encounter something I truly […]

Marc Alan Fishman: A Loss Without Warning

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 12:00:39 +0000

Last week, I teased a trilogy of convention-specific posts that would take you, my loyal readers (let’s assume it’s up to eight or nine now), on a journey for my li’l indie company to our personal Wrestlemania. But as with all things in life, the unexpected occurs and shakes our world down to the foundation. […]

Martha Thomases: Too Much! Too Much!

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 12:00:35 +0000

By the time you read this, I will be even more behind. The Iron Fist series starts on Netflix today. I still have not seen Stranger Things or most of Black Mirror, or A Series of Unfortunate Events. I haven’t finished the most recent seasons of Orange is the New Black or Love. I haven’t seen […]

Dennis O’Neil: Of Fists and Dragons

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 12:00:52 +0000

Spring already? Well, okay, but I look out the window and see ten inches of snow. (And you may now imagine me sniffing and grumbling.) But, alas, just because I may not happen to like it, this spring bushwa, doesn’t mean anything surprising is about to happen. I can’t help noticing that the universe seldom […]


Wed, 15 Mar 2017 17:43:10 +0000

“You’re wearing a dress and have a pet sidekick. You’re a princess.” Truer words have never been spoken in a Disney film and possibly for the first time, we have a Disney Princess film that breaks the fourth wall and acknowledges that their characters pee. In so many ways, the delightful Moana is a refreshing […]

Mike Gold: Good ‘Till The Next Drop?

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 12:00:50 +0000

I’ve heard quite few comics fans say (write, text, think out loud, bitch, moan, complain) that because of the large number of good comic book teevee shows they’ve found themselves having to cut back on their comics reading. Let’s see. I think I sympathize. After all, we’ve got Legion, Arrow, Agents of SHIELD, Gotham, Marvel […]

Box Office Democracy: Kong: Skull Island

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 18:00:00 +0000

It’s probably a good thing that I’m not in charge of which movies get made and which ones don’t.  While we would certainly get fewer third-rate horror movies and lazy animated movies (and like three more Crank movies, what happened to that franchise?) there’s just so many movies that must sound terrible at the log […]
