  • Comic-Booktoberfest!

    September 28, 2012 at 9:53 am

    October is right around the corner (I’m as surprised by that as you are! If you are.) which means HALLOWEEN is coming! Actually, according to my supermarket, Halloween has been coming since September 1st. But since they now make Cadbury Crème Eggs for Halloween, I’m not complaining. ANYWAY.  Halloween time means it’s time to read […]

  • Bohemian Yop City

    September 21, 2012 at 8:57 am

    Hey guys, do you know what you need to read? Aya: Life in Yop City. It’s been previously published as three different hardcovers, but is now coming out as one big awesome book—and it’s definitely worth reading. (The conclusion of the series, Aya: Love in Yop City, which comprises three volumes not published in English […]

  • Y Not The Last Man

    September 14, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    Well, rumor has it that a Y: The Last Man movie is back in the works, and I really wish this is a project that would just die already. Not because I don’t love the series — it’s one of the best series of the 2000s, and Agent 355 is high up on the list […]

  • Pilgrim's Progress

    September 7, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I’m going to be honest with you guys—I’m not sure I’m qualified to be writing this column anymore. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Don’t worry; she is.] I participated in bar trivia at Pinhook in Durham this week, and did very little to help my team to victory on the Marvel Comics round (we did come in second, […]

  • We'll Miss You All! (Except for you, Liefeld)

    August 31, 2012 at 9:28 am

    Guys, ohmygod, Doctor Who is finally back with new episodes on Saturday! And BBC has put out a bunch of minisodes called Pond Life! I am pretty excited about the new season, and not just because of the Doctor, Amy, Rory, and supposedly scary Daleks, but because there will apparently be dinosaurs in spaceships. Oh, […]

  • Faulty Power Coupling

    August 24, 2012 at 9:02 am

    So the big news in the comic book world this week is that Superman and Wonder Woman are becoming a couple and will be a couple in every relevant DC book (and probably some irrelevant ones, to sell more copies). For someone who ostensibly doesn’t care about superheroes — and definitely has little-to-no interest in […]

  • It's The Remix To Ignatz Wins

    August 17, 2012 at 9:23 am

    I’ve talked about comic book awards here before — specifically, the Eisners, which I likened to the Oscars of comics. But this week the Ignatz nominees were announced, and I’ll confess that I often like Ignatz Award winners/nominees more.  They’re aimed at awarding independent comics (more or less — in any case, you won’t see […]

  • I'm Playing The Whedon Game

    August 10, 2012 at 9:35 am

    I know, I know: just last week I was trying to stay away from getting all excited about superhero movie news. But with the whole Joss Whedon being officially on board not just for Avengers 2 but for an Avengers TV show, I couldn’t contain myself! First of all, it’s hard to go wrong with […]

  • Enough with the Movies!

    August 3, 2012 at 7:29 am

    I’ve been thinking lately that, for someone who doesn’t really read superhero comics, I spend a lot of time on this column talking about superhero movies. To be fair, those are a whole different animal. But instead of talking about recent news re: the new X-Men and Thor movies (which I’m sure I’ll get to […]

  • Who Put Deh-Shay In Deh-Shay De-Bah-Sah-Rah?

    July 27, 2012 at 8:50 am

    Even though the new Batman movie came out a week ago, this is really my first chance to talk about it (since I hadn’t yet seen it when I wrote my last column). I went to see it with a good friend of mine who, in general, loves superhero movies much more than I do. […]
