Hypothetical TV: DC's All-Star Superman Hypothetical TV: DC's All-Star Superman

There is a rumor that Warner Bros and the CW want a Superman spin-off – and that the “Elseworlds” crossover would be a backdoor pilot for it (as well as one for the Batwoman spin-off). The problem with that, however, is how do you differentiate it with Supergirl? Or with any of the other Superman-related TV shows…

How does Adam Strange stand up on Krypton? How does Adam Strange stand up on Krypton?

Watching episode three of DC prequel show Krypton on E4 where Adam Strange and Seg are discussing one of Braniac’s probes with Grandpa El Hologram. A niggling thought scratches at the back of my mind.

The Face of the Comic Con The Face of the Comic Con

Dig my new exclusive Comic Con lapel pin! Yeah, that’s right, it’s . . . a guy. I guess it’s Superman from the cowlick. It comes with the ever useful Comic Con bag which is also covered with Warner Brothers/DC advertising. I love those bags, don’t get me wrong, I’ve accumulated a good pile of them and they’re real…

Some Other Superhero Weddings That Went Off With or Without Complications Some Other Superhero Weddings That Went Off With or Without Complications

Superhero comics, as we know, are just big soap operas. And there is nothing that soap operas love more than a wedding. In fact, we’ve had two weddings (from both Marvel and DC) in recent weeks that have, well, had their complications: Marvel’s wedding between Kitty Pryde and Piotr Rasputin and DC’s wedding between…

The Life of Lois The Life of Lois

After hearing Margot Kidder passed away yesterday I decided to watch Superman II again last night (the Donner cut). The first film’s better than either version of the sequel but I feel like Kidder has more screentime in II, despite being fifth or sixth billed. This is probably do to other actors’ agents being better…

Comics that cracked 1,000 Comics that cracked 1,000

Comics reaching their thousandth issue might be more common than you think. You just need to look around the globe.

What Does DC's Black Label Mean? What Does DC's Black Label Mean?

Today, DC Comics unveiled their new “edgy” imprint, “DC Black Label.” It will include darker stories done by a variety of well-known writers and artists including:

Read Tom King and Clay Mann's Story for Action Comics #1000 Read Tom King and Clay Mann's Story for Action Comics #1000

DC Comics released Tom King and Clay Mann’s five page story for Action Comics #1000, “Of Tomorrow,” fully on their website. Please read it. It is incredibly beautiful and heartfelt and now I want an entire Superman book just done by Tom King and Clay Mann. This is the Superman I want to read all the time.

It will also feature the debut of some writer named Brian Michael Bendis or something.

"Old Photographs": The Strange Dichotomy of Doomsday Clock "Old Photographs": The Strange Dichotomy of Doomsday Clock

Doomsday Clock is a 2017-2018 comic book mini-series that will act not only as the culmination of the story arc introduced in DC Rebirth #1, but also as the sequel to the seminal classic Watchmen, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons in 1986. Doomsday Clock is written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by…

DC Extended Universe Movies I Would Love to See DC Extended Universe Movies I Would Love to See

So Justice League has finally arrived and it’s sure to make money — yes, domestically it’s a disappointment, but it still made over $281 million if you count international sales — and so the time has come to look to the future of this cinematic universe.

How 1,000 years of storytelling led to Thor: Ragnarok How 1,000 years of storytelling led to Thor: Ragnarok

Why do so many superhero movies have the same origin story? It all comes down to the use – and misuse – of the monomyth. Here’s what the hero’s journey is and why it shouldn’t be used to make movies (even if great movies feature it).

Darkseid's Secret and What It Means for Supervillains Darkseid's Secret and What It Means for Supervillains

Darkseid is coming to the Justice League movies, sooner or later. We really are in a golden age of superheroes in live action, at the moment, but as we get more and more movies and shows to enjoy, we start to see certain flaws in the genre. One particular flaw that’s becoming increasingly apparent? Boring…

Who's got the Power? Who's got the Power?

I’m not sure when it was exactly. Or where for that matter. Some coastal town where the family retreated for a holiday. Ramsgate, Broadstairs or Margate? Maybe Portsmouth? There was a pub that provided an element of shelter on a rainy evening with a family room that provided a joyful step back in time.

The Strange Origin of Lena Luthor The Strange Origin of Lena Luthor

Tonight’s episode of Supergirl once again focused on Lena Luthor, the sister of Superman’s arch-nemesis Lex Luthor, and whether or not she’s evil. Lena Luthor actually has a long history in the comics, starting in the Silver Age. In fact, much like the show, Lena and Supergirl had a long friendship and Lena even knew…

What is Supergirl's Greatest Moment? What is Supergirl's Greatest Moment?

An excellent argument was made here to give one of Superman’s greatest moments to Supergirl. It’s a compelling argument, sure, but at the end of the day, it is still one of Superman’s greatest moments — so shouldn’t they try to adapt Supergirl’s greatest moments? Which brings up the question: what is Supergirl’s…

Why Supergirl Should Adapt Superman’s Greatest Moment Why Supergirl Should Adapt Superman’s Greatest Moment

If you had to use one moment, one scene, one page even, to sum up Superman, I think it would be hard to find a better one that the scene with Regan on the ledge in All-Star Superman.

Two Old Friends Reconnect in Titans #7 Two Old Friends Reconnect in Titans #7

There were a lot of little changes in the wake of DC Rebirth, but there were two major changes: replacing the New 52 Superman with the older, post-Crisis Superman (along with his family) and the return of the original Wally West, the first Kid Flash and the Flash for the majority of the modern era. So what happens…

Exploring DC Rebirth: Superman by Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason, and Doug Mahnke Exploring DC Rebirth: Superman by Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason, and Doug Mahnke

So I’ve taken a look at the amazing Trinity and the awesome Wonder Woman, so now it’s time for another look at what DC Rebirth is doing right, with one of the best books out right now.

Best Comic Books of 2016 (Starting) Best Comic Books of 2016 (Starting)

So I’ve already gone through what I thought were the best returning comics of 2016. Now it’s time for the best comics that started in 2016. Yes, this does mean that some of these comics only have two or three issues out, but if so, it just means those two or three issues are really goddamn good.
