A Glorious Superman Summary From DC

Posted on

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

Gold and silver are surely precious, but it’s the Bronze and […]

Constantine Creators Get Nothing From New TV Option

Posted on

The dark magician Constantine got off to a troubled start, killing the classic Hellblazer just to join in the New 52’s controversial reboot of everything and everyone.
