• From the book...

    "Other people are just...there." She drags heavily on the cigarette, blows a stream of smoke out the window, then flicks the butt out after it. "If they aren't helping, they're just in the way. Weave around them, knock them over, do whatever you have to, but get past them."

Alan Moore Collaborator in the States!

Monday, August 14th, 2006

Have you heard that David Lloyd, co-creator of V for Vendetta, is touring the U.S. for his new Dark Horse GN, Kickback? Man, I didn’t know anything about this, but my cousin actually met him at Comic-Con in San Diego. He’s apparently going to be at the Baltimore show? It’s September 9 – 10. Do […]

Bendis! Review: NEW AVENGERS #22

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

Fanboy, you must have had a rough day or something or I would have never beaten you to the punch in reviewing the latest issue of New Avengers (#22 to be precise), featuring my main man, Luke Cage. (Did you like how I slipped in that “main man” thing? I’m going for a retro-blaxploitation vibe.) […]

Superman Returns Prequels

Thursday, June 22nd, 2006

Okay, two posts on similar subjects. Can you tell I’m getting excited about this? Anyhow, I just wanted to throw out there that I’m really enjoying the Superman Returns Prequel comics from DC. The first two are already out. The first one deals with Jor-El and the second one dealt with Martha Kent. Bryan Singer, […]

Superman Returns

Thursday, June 22nd, 2006

June 28, just a week from tomorrow, Superman Returns. I can’t tell you how much I didn’t care about this movie when it was announced. And it was actually even worse when I saw the photos of the costume. But now… man, I am SO ready for this movie! The trailers have been great; they […]

Sunday, June 11th, 2006

Hey, take a look at this. Everyone in comics is on and on, like it’s such big thing that regular magazines like Entertainment Weekly and so on cover comic books now. Seriously, take a look at something like that even just a few years ago and it was big news in the comic book world. […]

That’s all. Or do I need to elaborate? This entry written by… Cal.

The Terrell Owens Experience

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

The out-of-control-superstar-sports-figure is becoming as big a cliche as the guy who comes up to the movie hero and says “We need you back,” as if there’s no one else in the billions of people in the world who can do whatever it is the guy has to do… This seems like a regular refrain […]

Is anyone going to Wizard World Philadelphia? I’m not gonna be there, but it sounds like an okay show. Anyone around here ever been? Jim Lee and Kevin Smith are going to be there this time. John Romita, Sr. and John Romita, Jr. will be there as well. Wizard tool Geoff Johns is going to […]

Barry Bonds – 715

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Barry Bonds hit homerun number 715 the other day. And as disappointed as I am with him about his personal conduct, it was still a monster shot and the fans still went crazy. I just think they would have gone crazier without the controversy. I was listening to a sports radio talk show and the […]
