The newest Marvel Netflix Show, Iron Fist, is set to drop. As I’ve done with Daredevil Season 2 and Luke Cage, I intend to review most of the individual episodes. With both of those past series, and really all of the Netflix shows, I’ve felt they’ve started strong but ultimately finished weak. I didn’t even … More Upcoming Iron Fist Reviews
During my morning commute yesterday in addition to writing a post about the slow monotony of traveling to and from work, I also read the news about how new character, Riri Williams, will soon be taking over as the new Iron Man. Understandably there are a fair amount of people who are excited about this … More Riri Williams should be more than Fill In Iron Man
I will admit that at the start of this kerfuffle I was totally in the camp of “Hey, it is just a poster of two people fighting. Sure, Mystique is getting choked by Apocalypse, but he’s the big bad. People getting upset are taking things wildly out of context.” Admittedly, I also thought that if … More What I Learned From Apocalypse’s Choke
I loved Captain America: Civil War. I dont think it is the best Marvel movie, as that title belongs to Winter Soldier, but it is certainly in the Top 5. Heck, those movies borrow a lot from some of the best Captain America story (those written by Brubaker with art mostly by Epting and Perkins). … More Cap and Bucky
I feel like I am going to be courting some controversy with the post. I’ll admit that part of my writing about this is to try and clarify my own thoughts about this issue. I can easily say that when I first heard this casting choice I thought it made perfect sense. The other day … More Ghost in the Shell and Scarlett Johansson
I think by now everyone who is interested in such things know that there is a Dr. Strange movie being made. And that Dr. Strange is going to be played by Benedict Cumberbatch. And why not? I have to admit that I am not overly familiar with him. The only thing I have really seen … More How Should Dr. Strange Sound?
I keep telling myself I need to read (and and review) some of these new comics that are coming out. I am a little bit, but not very much. It doesn’t help that the Big Two recently jad shake-up-the-world events that chilled much of my interest and I’ll admit that as good as a lot … More Guilt Free Classic Comics
So, I m going to do that truly stupid thing and post to the blog after having more cups than I should of box wine. But after getting home after a drinking party I read yet another article about something that got stuck in my head. Why am I writing this? Because of Frank Cho. … More A Tipsy Comic Book Post About Frank Cho’s Spider-Gwen
On Sunday I published my first novel, Deadly Troubadours. That took a lot of time and energy not just from me but also from my cover artist. The cover was the last element to be completed before the final file was uploaded. In an interesting (at least to me) coincidence, that is entirely unrelated of … More Cover Controversy: Batgirl #41
I really like strong, kick-ass women in comics. So, it seems, do a lot of folk. Which makes it rather surprising that such characters are still so rare that new female lead titles get an extra little celebration. I understand the joy even if, as in this case I don’t necessarily agree with it. That’s … More A-Force – Empowerment and Diversity?
