COMICS WRITERS! Stop setting your stories in Portland. KTHXBYE!

Posted by Rob Noble August 11, 2011
Portland

I’ve always been fascinated with the differences in comics that choose to portray actual, real cities versus those that place their characters in such exotic locales as “Coast City,” “Central City” and “Hub City.” Probably the most famous of these fictional burgs are Gotham and Metropolis, and it was with this in mind that Stan [...]

DC Multiverse spills out of your TV!

Young Justice

It’s true! DC sent out his week’s issues with a preview of the new Superman: Earth One storyline.  I don’t think the world needs any more new Superman origin stories, but I am glad to see the latest DC Multiverse finally take on some personality.  So there’s that, then there’s Pax Americana, in which Grant [...]

Batman: the Return of Bruce Wayne – Now more Piratey!

Posted by Rob Noble September 19, 2010
Bruce Wayne

Batman continues his great running leap through time in Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #3.  While numbers 1 and 2 concerned themselves mostly with the mechanics of Bruce’s time-traveling (where has he landed this time?  Puritan-era Gotham?  On it!), number 3 begins to explore not just the how and the where but the why [...]

Let the Batman 3 dreamcasting begin!

The Riddler

So, Inception’s finally out.  If you’re a sci-fi super-nerd, a fan of Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight (or any of his other clockwork-like films) or just an admirer of Leo DiCaprio’s extra-tan face, you’ve probably already seen it.  And that’s great!  I’m going to post something later this week about one of Inception’s source materials: [...]

Harvey Pekar, you will be missed

Harvey Pekar

It’s a sad day for comix fans – legendary (and legendarily cranky) comic book writer and personality Harvey Pekar has passed away at the age of 70. Mixing the mundane and the existential, Pekar’s American Splendor autobiographically documented the life of a Cleveland file clerk in all his dank, misanthropic glory. Although an autopsy has [...]

Rumor or Truemor: Chris Columbus to direct Superman reboot?

Posted by Jon Wiener July 8, 2010
Superman

Warner Bros. is itching to make a new 3D Superman film and rumors are flying all over the place.  The latest is that WB wants Chris Columbus to take the helm, according to the folks over at Superman Homepage. I am definitely a fan of Columbus and I would be very curious to see what [...]

Bruce Wayne, meet Arthur Miller

Bruce Wayne

Although I hadn’t started off thinking “Hmnn, I bet it would be totally worthwhile to review each of the 6 issues of Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne”, I just can’t help myself.  There are too many bat-books out right now to be fully invested in each one, so it all comes down to cherry-picking [...]

Andrew Garfield is Spider-Man; no more lasagna for this guy

Posted by Jon Wiener July 1, 2010
Andrew Garfield

This just in: Andrew Garfield (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) has officially been named as the new Peter Parker/Spider-man for the upcoming reboot.  Garfield is not so much of an unknown, but definitely a lesser-known. Personally, I like the idea of an unfamiliar face taking on this great power/responsibility.  Let’s hope he steps up and [...]

The Trailer Park, No.004 – The Green Hornet

Seth Rogen, Unleash Your Inner Hornet!

Hey!  Whoa!  Very first The Green Hornet trailer has just come out.  I don’t know about the rest of you, but to me it seemed to suddenly jump from “forgotten in development turn-around” to “coming soon” right outta nowhere.  Of course “coming soon” means January 2011. So what’s the story here?  What’s going on with [...]
