Crazy Characters From The Bronze Age Of Marvel

Posted on

The Bronze age brought us some of the craziest characters and covers ever created in comic books. We all know about Silver Age insanity, but that was the inventive pressure brought to bear on censored writers who had to make a Superman script but weren’t allowed to have him hitting people. In the Bronze age […]

Samurai Jack Is Back From The Past (Wa-cha!)

Posted on

Comic books can conjure heroes out of ink and paper, or resurrect them when they fall from other formats. Samurai Jack was the multiple-Emmy-award-winning brainchild of Genndy Tartakovsky, but little things like “critical acclaim” and “being one of the most gorgeous things on air” apparently don’t mean much to the Cartoon Network and the show […]

The Adventures Of The Superman Action Family

Posted on

Superman has struggled with everything writers can imagine for seventy-five years.

The Man of Steel has spanned over sixty years of continuous comic books, and when Zack Snyder challenged DC to sum up his entire history in sixty seconds, they said a minute was just too short.

Selling The Star Wars That Saved Marvel

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, Luke Skywalker saved the Rebel Alliance. And the Marvel Universe too. It’s hard to imagine that the mighty Marvel monolith was ever less than all-dominating, but when Star Wars redefined what cinema was capable of, it contributed to the near-collapse of comic books, and the […]

Free Neil Gaiman Comics, And It’s Even Better Than That

Posted on

Free Neil Gaiman comic books sound like something a Nigerian prince of printed matter would promise, an urgent e-mail too good to be true which ends with you scammed out of your silver and gold (age) goods by the hope of wonderful and impossible dreams. But wonderful and impossible dreams are exactly what Neil Gaiman […]

Halloween is the one time of year we can all cape ourselves as crusaders, apply make-up as monsters, and indulge all our silliest and most stylish fantasies. But what we call cutting loose, comic book heroes call another day at the office. It’s an odd adventure which doesn’t involve at least five pairs of tights, […]
