While Waiting for the Final Season, Revisit Westeros in 4K

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 20:20:30 +0000

New York, N.Y., April 4, 2018 – Relive the warmer days and calmer nights of Westeros when Game of Thrones: Season 1 makes its highly-anticipated debut on 4K Ultra HD optimized for Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range on June 5th from HBO Home Entertainment.  Heralded as an “HBO triumph” (Boston Globe), Season 1 of the […]

Wakanda Forever as Black Panther Comes to Disc in May

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 16:12:03 +0000

BURBANK, Calif. (April 10, 2018) — Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, the highly celebrated story of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), a young African prince who takes on the mantle of King and Super Hero, has thrilled and inspired generations of moviegoers around the globe. Now, fans can bring home the phenomenon, packed with light-hearted fun, pulse-pounding action […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #103: Syllabus by Lynda Barry

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 12:00:32 +0000

This is not a graphic novel. It’s not even graphic non-fiction in a narrative form. It’s related to Lynda Barry’s last few books, What It Is and Picture This , but it’s less conventional and concerned with telling a story than those two books were. Luckily, it has a title that tells us what it […]

Black Lightning The Complete First Season Strikes Home in June

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 20:51:27 +0000

BURBANK, CA (April 11, 2018) – From Warner Bros. Television, DC Entertainment and Berlanti Productions, the producers of the hit series The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, along with Akil Productions, comes the next Super Hero breakout hit as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases Black Lightning: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #102: Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1954 by Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson and various artists

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 11:51:32 +0000

So the big Hellboy story is over — it’s been over longer than most people think, as I argued when I wrote about the second volume of Hellboy in Hell. But Hellboy is still a valuable piece of intellectual property, with a potential movie reboot still kicking around in the background somewhere. So there has […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #100: The Ghost in the Shell by Masamune Shirow

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 11:32:19 +0000

People will tell you that The Ghost in the Shell is a single story, about a cyborg cop in a complex future Japan and her pursuit of a mysterious AI called The Puppeteer. They are lying to you. Oh, that thread is here, and the very last installment here sees the conclusion of that story. […]

REVIEW: Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay

Mon, 09 Apr 2018 14:45:08 +0000

The trailer for Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay was designed to make it look like a 1970-s grindhouse film, which could have been an interesting take on the team. What we get instead, isn’t exactly that, and while set within the new DC Animated Universe canon is off in a corner, nor is it particularly […]

Book-A- Day 2018 #98: Saga, Vol. 8 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Mon, 09 Apr 2018 11:09:55 +0000

I should probably stop writing about Saga through the lens of my own expectations. I want it to be a single story that started with the birth of one child in this space-fantasy universe, and to have it end well in a way that wraps up that story. But it’s becoming more and more clear […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #96: Rise of the Black Flame by Mignola, Roberson & Mitten

Sat, 07 Apr 2018 10:48:11 +0000

Another day, another Hellboy spinoff. It’s not quite that frequent in the real world, but it certainly can seem that way. (And I did just talk about The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed yesterday.) Rise of the Black Flame is another unnecessary book, which fills in backstory that wasn’t required the first time around. […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #94: Lewis & Clark by Nick Bertozzi

Thu, 05 Apr 2018 10:24:54 +0000

I’ve already done my song-and-dance about explorers in my post four years ago about Bertozzi’s book Shackleton, so it’s best to take that as read here. [1] But Shackleton lived in an age when most of the world had been mapped and organized; he was trying to fill in one of the last few open […]

REVIEW: Legion: The Complete Season One

Wed, 04 Apr 2018 16:47:05 +0000

Fox and FX have taken entirely divergent paths in exploring the mutant mythos apart from the X-Men feature films. In Gifted, they make it personal and about family in a paranoid America, that has taken mutant hysteria to new heights. On the far more dramatic and intense FX network, they go for the individual in […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #90: The Nemo Trilogy by Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill

Sun, 01 Apr 2018 09:41:45 +0000

One of the core joys of comic books for the past fifty years has been playing with other people’s toys. I’m not hugely in sympathy with that impulse myself, but I can recognize that a lot of people want to do it, either directly (by writing comics) or indirectly (by reading those comics and arguing […]

REVIEW: Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero

Sat, 31 Mar 2018 14:47:23 +0000

One of the strengths found in Batman: The Animated Series is its compassion for heroes and villains alike. In this series, inspired by the success of Tim Burton’s 1989 feature film, writers and animators alike brought a more adult, more mature approach to the stories, rewriting the rules for children’s animated fare. In time, this […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #86: Descender, Vol. 4 by Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen

Wed, 28 Mar 2018 09:00:44 +0000

At some point, writing about an ongoing series becomes gibberish to the uninformed and spoilers to the slightly behind. (Maybe not both at exactly the same moment, but both eventually.) I’d like to think that can still be a long way off, that I can spin out interesting things to say about the fourth volume […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #85: Groo Vs. Conan by Sergio Aragones, Mark Evanier, and Thomas Yeates

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 08:51:36 +0000

Something can be both an obvious idea and a bad idea. I think we’ve all had that weird vertiginous feeling when looking down from a great height, like we want to jump off. Nearly all of us manage to foil that impulse, and, of the few who don’t, a large proportion have tethers or parachutes […]

The Law Is A Ass #431: Spider-Man’s Crime Fighting Needs Improv-Ment

Mon, 26 Mar 2018 18:30:04 +0000

Spider-Man. Spider-Man. Who, according to the song, does whatever a spider can. However, when it comes to fighting crime, sometimes he doesn’t do it as well as a spider would. The Amazing Spider-Man Annual Vol 3, No. 1 had three stories in it. We’ll take what was behind Door Number 3, a little deal of […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #84: Super-Powered Revenge Christmas by Bill Corbett and Len Peralta

Mon, 26 Mar 2018 08:40:59 +0000

I could make up all sorts of excuses why I read this book. Perhaps the MST3K connection, since I’m in a hotel in the Twin Cities area right now, on a business trip. Maybe I could pretend to have planned to read it at Christmas, and neglected it for a couple of months. The answer is […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #84: Super-Powered Revenge Christmas by Bill Corbett and Len Peralta

Mon, 26 Mar 2018 08:40:59 +0000

Book-A-Day 2018 #83: You & A Bike & A Road by Eleanor Davis

Sun, 25 Mar 2018 08:27:34 +0000

What is this book about? Well, the title is You & A Bike & A Road . It’s by Eleanor Davis. It was published by Koyama Press in May 2017. The outside of the book will tell you no more. Opening it doesn’t give much more information — some legalese on the copyright page, and […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #82: Nicolas by Pascal Girard

Sat, 24 Mar 2018 08:18:29 +0000

Early success is the most dangerous kind. Great success for something you did quickly can be even worse. When the two are combined…well, it’s hard for your career to be other than disappointing afterward. Nicolas  wasn’t Pascal Girard’s first comics work, or first book — but it was really close, on both counts. And it’s […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #80: Jack Staff, Vol. 2: Soldiers by Paul Grist and Phil Elliott

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 07:54:44 +0000

It was just a little over a month ago that I covered Jack Staff Vol. 1 here, a decade after it was published. I’m accelerating a bit now, getting to 2010’s second volume with what passes for blinding speed around here. Jack Staff, Vol. 2: Soldiers sees Paul Grist’s superhero universe transformed into full color […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #79: Nat Turner by Kyle Baker

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 07:44:43 +0000

I am in great danger of dancing about architecture here, so I’ll acknowledge it, first, and then try to move on. Nat Turner is a nearly wordless graphic novel: it contains only narration taken from The Confessions of Nat Turner (a contemporary account), and some sound effects. All of the characters in it are silent […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #77: The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Vol. 3: Squirrel, You Really Got Me Now by Ryan North and Erica Henderson

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 07:23:20 +0000

Doreen Green is still cute, still a bit chunky, still indomitable, and still the most upbeat character in comics. But she’s now a second-year student in Computer Science at Empire State U — which state is weirdly referred to as a “second-year alum” more than once — which means she’s that much closer to actually […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #76: The Soddyssey and The Werewolf of New York by Batton Lash

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 07:14:12 +0000

I’m not a lawyer. But I’m a lot more familiar with lawyers these days, having spent the last three years working with a bunch of them (including more “recovering lawyers” than one would expect) and marketing things to lawyers all day every day. So maybe this time I came back to Batton Lash’s long-running “Supernatural […]

Here we go, folks. In theaters April 27th. Are you getting ready?
