    February 4, 2013 at 10:00 am

    Well, obviously, the big news in nerdery this week is that JJ Abrams will be directing the first new Star Wars movie, which has me tentatively shifting my feelings about said movie from “cautiously optimistic” to “actually optimistic.” I mean, lens flares aside, Abrams does some pretty entertaining movies. I liked his Star Trek movie […]

  • Graphic Novelties: News & Views

    January 19, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    Another week, another batch of chatter about comics and comics-related pop culture stuff! First, I am very excited that the Powers TV show is not dead. Powers is a really great, long-running series that I think would make a really fun tv show—about a couple of cops who deal with superhero-related crimes. I tend not […]

    Well, it’s December, which means the end of the year, which means: time to talk about our favorite stuff from the year! Without further ado, here are my favorite comics from 2012 (in no particular order): —Scott Pilgrim color editions!

  • M-I-C-3-P-O M-O-U-S-E!

    November 2, 2012 at 9:08 am

    The BIG nerd news this week is only tangentially comic book related, but I’ll get around to that in a minute. Obviously the HUGE news is that George Lucas sold the Star Wars franchise to Disney AND there is going to be a new trilogy of movies. This has shocked and horrified a nation of […]

  • Kent's Insensibility, or, Pryde and Prejudice

    October 26, 2012 at 9:48 am

    It’s always interesting to see which comic book news makes the mainstream media (as opposed to the many comic-book-related websites and blogs). This week, it’s Superman/Clark Kent quitting the Daily Planet to be a blogger (at least I assume that’s what happened, based on this coverage; I don’t actually read Superman comics). I love how […]

(I clearly am, judging by the number of exclamation points and times I use the word “awesome” in the following.) –First up: Ed Brubaker (author […]

    So, have you guys checked out the AMAZING graphic novel adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, by NC’s own Hope Larson? (She did a signing at Chapel Hill Comics this past weekend and I got to meet her, I definitely went a little bit fangirl on her!) Anyway, the graphic novel is part of the […]
