A Fitting End to ‘Y’?


As is the case with pretty much every comic I read, I was a latecomer to Y: The Last Man--gimme a break, I only started reading comics a few years ago. But I was immediately stricken with Brian K. Vaughan's extremely clever dialogue laced with some of the best and dorkiest pop culture references I've ever read--and that's saying something because I used to follow Bill Amend's weekly FoxTrot comic strip religiously...

Jenna Delves Deeper into Comics


One of the benefits of working at a major men's magazine is that my inbox gets inundated on a daily basis with random crap that people think the magazine absolutely MUST publish in order to stay relevant (read: natural male enhancements supplements and stories about men doing strange things with bees)...

Warren Ellis had the Best Week Ever


Last week was a big one for our friend Warren Ellis. Aside from contracting what he diagnosed as San Diego SARS and downing something like five pallets of Red Bull at what is assured to be one of his last Comic-Cons in quite a while--and you should check out John's stellar on-the-scene reportage for all the tidbits and gory details of that adventure--he released the first issues of two new comic series, a graphic novel and his first ever prose novel-quite a hefty load, so much so that its taken me this long to parse through the material, develop one or two cogent thoughts and present you here with my mega-Warren-Ellis-review bonanza...

Jenna Jameson In Bed with Virgin


While John, Chris, and Wayne are basking in the glow of Comic-Con and I am stuck in the drudgery of Manhattan, I bring news that should brighten your day--I know it did mine. But first I pose a question: what do you do if you're an adult entertainment star that's been around long enough so that your age, and your many cosmetic surgeries, are starting to catch up to you...

Ultimate Spidey #111: The End of an Era


I know this post is about a week late --I think my colleague Chris Dooley put it best when he texted me yesterday succinctly calling me a "slacker"-- but I couldn't let the publication of Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 111 pass unnoticed...

Ellis’s ‘Crooked Little Vein’ Weighs the Lesser of Two Evils


Welcome to America, a country so desensitized that anal sex is too mainstream to be considered a fetish, and where Macroherpetophilia (love of large lizards, namely Godzilla) flourishes. Welcome to America, a country so morally decrepit and corrupt that rich Texas oil families with political aspirations are left to their own devices (namely hunting dolphins and seals and snorting large amounts of cocaine through gas masks), and the President's Chief of Staff spends his free time in posh hotels shooting heroin and releasing his bowels on rich upholstery...

‘Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen’ Gets the Comic Treatment

A few months ago I was writing profiles for's online poll leading up to the magazine's annual Time 100 list--basically 100 Person of the Year issues all rolled into one to sell twice as much ad space as the Person of the Year...

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
