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)...

Heroes to Hit the Shelves…Sort of…


Ever since NBC decided to place pretty much every egg they've got in the Heroes basket, I've been waiting with bated breath for the show's inevitable journey to the printed page. So imagine my surprise this week when I learned that my fears and suspicions were indeed well-founded, but not at all in the manner I had imagined...

Brian K. Vaughan Writes LOST


My friends tell me I'm the worst person to watch LOST with. Apparently I'm too cynical, though I think with good reason. For one thing, the plot has gone too far and too wide for me to care any more about the mysteries of the island...

Fantastic Looking Not-So-Bad


Against all reason, I'm actually looking forward to Fanstasic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. I've never really loved the comics--they've always seemed two steps behind in their evolution out of '80s superhero cheese, and even when my favorite writer, Brian Michael Bendis, took a crack at the first Ultimate Fantastic Four story arc, I was thoroughly unimpressed...
