Can’t decide which superheroes are your favorites? Why not enjoy a little bit of all of them?

Unsung Hero of the ’90s: A Celebration of Gerard Jones

jones_featured

If you know Gerard Jones from his work this century, you probably think of him as a comics and pop culture historian.

Superhero Color Theory, Part II: Secondary Characters

week-2

Last time in Superhero Color Theory we explained why our main heroes look the way they do. Now it's time to look at the secondary colors and how they often, but not always, signal the presence of a bad guy.
