Emily S. Whitten: Fan2Sea –The Comic-Con on a Cruise Ship

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 19:00:15 +0000

I’ve always wanted to go on a cruise. I love being out on the water, and have even joked that I’d live in a tiny house surrounded by water if I could. So it’s kind of silly that I’ve never been on a cruise, isn’t it? And I love comic-cons, as anyone who’s ever read […]

Molly Jackson: Flying High

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 17:00:19 +0000

I’ve been traveling a lot for my day job. It’s been hectic and crazy but it did give me a chance to catch up on some comics I’ve been trying to read. Not sure if you remember, but about a year ago Dark Horse Comics announced acclaimed writer Margaret Atwood would be coming to comics […]

Mike Gold Has Seen The Future

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 12:00:41 +0000

Back when I was a waddling comic book fan, I loved all those little spy cameras that Doctor Doom had floating around the planet. I figured that was the source of his obvious wealth – he sold them to other evil-doers such as, say, Haliburton. It titillated my sense of wonder, which always is a […]

Box Office Democracy: “The Magnificent Seven”

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 23:00:10 +0000

If The Magnificent Seven had a title like Seven Cool Cowboys, I would be here writing a rave review. This remake is a good, fun western that might employ a lot of well-worn tropes, but has a good enough cast and a light enough tone to make it work quite well. I had a great […]

The BFG Arrives Home for Dreamers Dec. 6

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 21:45:32 +0000

BURBANK, Calif., Sept. 23, 2016 — This month, the world celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roald Dahl, beloved children’s author of family favorites like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda and Dahl’s personal favorite, The BFG, as well as World Dream Day, an annual event honoring “the dreamer, […]

REVIEW: Constantine the Complete Series

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 20:00:13 +0000

I may have been one of the few to like the 2005 film version of DC Comics’ John Constantine. Yes, it had Keanu and yes it was in Los Angeles, not London, but it was an old fashioned horror film and worked better than it should have. As a result, I was primed to enjoy […]

Michael Davis, uncut: The Dream Killer

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 17:00:33 +0000

Every few years I write a real world advice article for young creators. My Bad Boy Studio mentor program has produced some exceptional graduates working in comics, television, illustration and related media. I’ve also taught and/or lectured at The Joe Kubert School, Pratt Institute, The School Of Visual Arts, Rhode Island School of Design, the […]

Joe Corallo: Love Is… Complicated

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 12:00:26 +0000

Last week DC Comics and IDW announced will join together to publish a 144 page graphic novel titled Love Is Love to raise money for Equality Florida to help the victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, FL on June 12th. This groundbreaking venture between two comic book publishers and a nonprofit was organized […]

Emily S. Whitten: Dresden Files’ Jim Butcher Talks Peace Talks

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 19:30:55 +0000

I am, as I have previously noted, a big fan of Jim Butcher’s long-running series about the modern-day wizard Harry Dresden, a.k.a. The Dresden Files. The stories and characters are great fun and the books just keep getting better, and more complex, and deeper overall. If you haven’t encountered the series before, I highly recommend […]

Mindy Newell: Shopping For My New Comics Shop

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 17:00:04 +0000

So yesterday afternoon I turned on the TV to watch the live Global Citizen concert and caught one of my favorite artists, Yusuf Islam – formerly known as Cat Stevens – performing songs “Wild World” and, joined by Eddie Vedder, “Father and Son,” both from one of his best albums, 1970’s Tea for the Tillerman. […]

Ed Catto: Think Globally, Geek Locally

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 12:00:38 +0000

The madness that is San Diego Comic-Con gave way to the easy fun of Baltimore Comic-Con. Now Geek Culture gets ready for the last big comic convention of the year, New York Comic Con, with anxiety and anticipation. But it’s not really as simple as that. There have been plenty of really good conventions each […]

John Ostrander: For What It’s Worth

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 12:00:40 +0000

 “Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong.” – For What It’s Worth, 1967, written by Stephen Stills, performed by Buffalo Springfield SPOILERS! Warning! Danger! I’m going to discuss some questions raised in Captain America: Civil War, which means some plot points will get spilled. If you haven’t yet seen the film – it’s just out on Blu-Ray […]

Marc Alan Fishman: Super Civic Pride

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 12:00:35 +0000

Marvel recently announced a set of variant covers for its newly launching U.S. Avengers series. As with most listicle-ized ideas in modern comic bookery, it wasn’t much of a shock to me as a stunt. It will provide local comic shops something cool to order to entice collectors with, and for the super serious collectors, […]

Long Way North Receives Limited Theatrical Run from Shout!

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:09:04 +0000

Directed by celebrated animator and filmmaker Rémi Chayé and produced by Sacrebleu Productions (Oscar®-Nominated Madagascar, Carnet de Voyage), Maybe Movies (Oscar®-Nominated Ernest & Celestine) and Norlum Studios (Oscar®-Nominated Song of the Sea), France 3 Cinéma and 2 Minutes, LONG WAY NORTH won the coveted Audience Award at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival and the […]

Martha Thomases’ March Revelation

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:00:21 +0000

Hallelujah! Over the weekend, I had a revelation. March, by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell, is the answer to every question, the solution to every problem. Let me explain how I came to see the light. I was at a conference for American Jews interested in increasing the opportunities for a shared society among […]

Box Office Democracy: Blair Witch

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 00:00:15 +0000

When I first saw The Blair Witch Project in 1999 it was the most scared I had ever been in a theater with the exception of having to leave the theater during Edward Scissorhands when I was six years old. A lot contributed to my enjoyment of that film: found footage was new and exciting […]

Tweeks: August 2016 Loot Crate, Loot Pets & Level UpUnboxing

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 17:00:14 +0000

We unbox our August Anti-Hero Loot Crate, Loot Pets Crate & Level Up bag and then fight over Harley Quinn stuff. That’s basically it. However if you like Archer or World of Warcraft, you can give us a good reason to send you that swag! State your case in the comments!

Dennis O’Neil: Defy! We Dare Ya!

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 12:00:02 +0000

  Done any daring to defy lately? If you’re a fan of the television versions of superheroes, you know what I’m talking/typing about. The network that calls itself The CW has, for a while now, been advocating such daring and this is the very same the go-to corporate entity that has made itself the go-to […]

Star Trek Beyond Orbits Digital HD Oct. 4, Disc Nov. 1

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 17:49:46 +0000

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.  – The intrepid crew of the USS Enterprise returns in “the best action movie of the year” (Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood).  The “highly entertaining” (David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter) new installment in the iconic franchise, STAR TREK BEYOND sets a course on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray Combo Packs, DVD and On […]

Mike Gold: The Real Monster

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 12:00:24 +0000

I was going to write about comics again this week; I usually do, and I’ve got all sorts of notes on a topic that can wait a week or two. ComicMix purports to proselytize about geek culture – or, as my fellow wordsmith Ed Catto calls it, “Geek Culture” – for the broader comic book […]

Emily S. Whitten: Convention Catch-Up — Yay, Dragon Con!

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 17:00:58 +0000

Time flies, doesn’t it? It seems like just yesterday I was watching Animaniacs Live, interviewing folks about Turtles and cartoons, seeing the latest in geek fashions, hanging out with American Gods, and chatting with the Kings of Con at SDCC, not to mention chillin’ at Nerd HQ. And now suddenly it’s September, and I’ve since attended […]

Joe Corallo: Caitlin R. Kiernan and the Rising Stars

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 12:00:29 +0000

Last week I interviewed Rachel Pollack in this space. In my introduction I mentioned that only two trans women have written for DC before. That’s somewhat true, and somewhat not true. It would be true to say that only one trans woman had written for DC, and it would also be true to say that […]

REVIEW: Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 21:02:11 +0000

Gail Simone is an adept writer who brings a unique voice to her projects and when she took over Dynamite’s Red Sonja, it was no different. Her initial foray, Queen of Plagues, saw the she-devil with a sword lead an army as payback for a man who spared her life. Not only did she display […]

Ed Catto: Fiction with Purpose

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 12:00:05 +0000

On the way to RocCon, the Rochester Comic Convention, my cousin John gave me a comics-related clipping that his mom, my Aunt Carolyn, asked him to pass along. It was from the Catholic Courier and it was a positive review of Darwyn Cooke’s graphic novel The New Frontier. This week’s column was supposed to be […]

John Ostrander: Writing Rules

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 12:00:40 +0000

Recently on Facebook, a father asked me what advice I could give his 13-year old daughter who wanted to be a writer. I had to be succinct but I think my reply was moderately useful and I thought I’d repeat it here. As I’ve done columns about writing before, some of this may be familiar […]
