When SNAKE PLISSKEN Met JACK BURTON!

One of the bummers of being in love with a cult film is that you, along with the rest of the general public, probably missed it upon its initial release (unless, of course, you weren’t alive at that point), only to discover it much later on, either on cable or video. And hence, you indirectly […]

Five of the Weirdest Characters to Grace the Four Colored Page

If you read comic books long enough, you’ll see some real weird characters. After all, we have nearly 100 years of comics, filled with millions of characters and most of those characters are really kooky.

Don’t Hate! Your Childhood Is Still Intact

This may sound weird coming from a guy who wrote a whole thing not that long ago about how we need to stop supporting bad horror movies, but I think we all need to take a step back and quit hating. If you read my piece on bad horror movies and not supporting them, I […]

Summer Reading: Catch Up On Some Great Comics

Summer. A time for sitting in the sun on a beach, or if you’re more like me, hiding away in a dark room with stacks of comic books. We, the ones David Wain and Michael Showalter so aptly named “the indoor kids” have a love for the four color page, and we enjoy it no […]

Five Reasons Why BATMAN ‘66 Is Still The Best BATMAN Movie

Since 1943, the Dark Knight Detective has appeared on the silver screen a dozen times (13 is you include THE LEGO MOVIE). There is no true agreement on what the best Batman movie is, each one is the favorite of someone. Well, maybe not BATMAN & ROBIN, but you get what I’m saying. Some people […]

Where Is The SUPERMAN We Once Knew And Loved?

When I was 10, my dad took me to see SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE. At the theater, I met Superman. He gave me a coloring book. He was really, really, super cool, and I was beyond excited. In my 10 year old head, I was meeting a true hero. I mean, I knew […]

The 10 Funniest Quotes From the DEADPOOL Comic

A DEADPOOL article!? Now?! Isn’t that the sort of thing you put out when there’s big news in the DEADPOOL world? It’s been months since the Blu-Ray came out and even longer since the “Merc With The Mouth” has been in theaters. You’re right.

It’s Time For Hollywood To Look At Horror Comics

At this point, it’s hard to imagine a summer without superhero movies. I’m not here to bash that, I love superhero movies, and I’m not one to agree with the “superhero fatigue” idea (see the grosses for DEADPOOL and CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR for reasons why that theory is very wrong). What I don’t get […]

SQUADRON SUPREME: Marvel’s JUSTICE LEAGUE And Ignored Classic!

In the fall of 1986, DC Comics published the first issue of a comic that would change the industry forever. Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons (with a solid assist by colorist John Higgins) took a long, hard look at  the history and format of superhero comics and took it apart piece by piece like a […]
