My Top 10 Superhero Comic Books of 2017

It’s been an interesting year for superhero comic books. DC’s been trucking along with “Rebirth,” telling a lot of fun stories in the mix. Marvel’s been more split, with half the line spending a considerable part of the year embroiled in weird Nazi/Hydra antics while several of the titles that avoided Secret Empire put outContinue reading “My Top 10 Superhero Comic Books of 2017”

Justice League Review: It Was Fine, I Guess? Not Good, But Not Awful

Justice League isn’t a terrible movie, and that in itself is a major achievement. Director Zack Snyder’s past two superhero outings were dour, unwieldy affairs that fundamentally misunderstood almost every character who appeared in them. Justice League is a much more conventional movie, leaner and even fun at times. It’s not great by any means.Continue reading “Justice League Review: It Was Fine, I Guess? Not Good, But Not Awful”

Remembering Len Wein, and his Reinvention of Catwoman

Legendary comic book creator Len Wein passed away yesterday at the age of 69. “Legendary” is no exaggeration either; the man co-created Wolverine, one of the most famous superheroes of all time.

Wonder Woman Annual #1 Review: A Delightful Assortment of Tales!

Annuals are tricky comic books. They cost more than a regular issue, so readers expect some extra bang for their buck. They also tend to be disconnected from the ongoing arc(s) in the main series, so it’s easy for readers to question their relevance. An annual is an expensive collection of standalone stories, most ofContinue reading “Wonder Woman Annual #1 Review: A Delightful Assortment of Tales!”
