Last Wizard World Post…I Swear

I know you're probably a little ODed on reports from Wizard World, but bear with me because I finally figured out how to upload videos. What you're about to see is a performance last weekend by a stage combat troupe calling themselves New York Jedi...

Marvel Editors Dish on Avengers


A panel of Marvel editors joined by their all-star pitcher Brian Michael Bendis teamed up on the last day of Wizard World Philadelphia to throw a bone or two to Avengers fans. Of course the number one topic of conversation was the Skrull event in New Avengers #31, which I've already written enough about so will only go so far as to report that everything will be crescendoing over the course of the year for an epic story arc sometime early next year...

Bendis and Quesada News Bonanza at Wizard World!


Brian Michael Bendis is a Skrull! That was just one of the myriad shocking revelations unloaded today to comic connoiseurs--some themselves dressed in the most shocking of attires, as Dooley is so nicely illustrating--at Wizard World during the Powers and Avengers scribe's hour-long panel

Ellis’s ‘Black Summer’ Poses Tough Questions


If there's one thing Warren Ellis loves to do, it's go totally overboard with a concept. Take his upcoming novel Crooked Little Vein (which I'm not allowed to review yet, but look for it July 1!), a crime noir detective story, which let's just say involves a government conspiracy to hide a second constitution of the United States that's written on alien skin...

‘Halo’ versus ‘Gears of War’


Master Chief, or Marcus Fenix? It's been an ongoing and ever-bitter debate in the gaming community as to which grizzled gunner reigns supreme over their respective plagues (Flood, Locusts, whatever). With opinions relatively split (one poll gave Halo the slight edge with 51% preferring their combat evolved), much credence has been given to the simple fact that Gears of War now outranks Halo on Xbox live--surely a just argument...

Toupydoops a Tinseltown Trip


Not for nothing is Hollywood called the Boulevard of Broken Dreams. It's made on the backs of aspiring, former, and failed model-slash-actresses, or novelists-slash-screenwriters or, heaven forbid, comic-slash-screenwriters...

Batman Commits Suicide!


I've found that one of the most remarkable things about Web 2.0 is how it has opened up a whole new avenue for re-exploring the classics--by letting us make our own mark on them. As far as comics go, this could mean anything from rewriting the dialogue in Lichtenstein's "The Great Divorce" to making certain subtleties in Watchmen--*cough* Dr...

Art Thou Ready for Some Shakespeare?


A UK comic publisher is ready to find out if a rose by any other name really would smell as sweet. Apparently Self Made Hero Comics, a relatively new house, is set to give Shakespeare a manga treatment with a series of novels this year based on his plays

Will ‘Ronin’ Commit Hari-Kari?


Hollywood just can't seem to get enough of Frank Miller. With good cause: No matter how many Mystery Men, Catwoman and Punisher adaptations tank (and let's not even talk about Alan Moore's books that inexplicably crash one after another), Miller's works consistently get hit out of the park...

‘Fallen Son’ Rises Above


I've found myself curiously moved by Jeph Loeb's Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America one-shots, the third issue of which hit stands next week. It's not that I wasn't disheartened to hear of Cap's death, just that in the grand scheme of things there are bigger tragedies with which to burden myself (and let's be honest, no one is ever REALLY dead in the Marvel universe)...
