Released this week for Android and iOS, Teeny Titans combines Cartoon Networks’ second-best Teen Titans show with the collect-and-battle mechanics of Pokemon to create something wonderful.
Tom King says that a lifetime of reading superhero comics helped him get ready to work for the CIA. And working for the CIA, in its own way, got him ready to write Batman.
In 1978, one of the strangest and most exhilarating comic book issues in DC’s history appeared in stores, featuring one of the greatest team-ups of all time: Superman and Muhammad Ali.
The powers-that-be at DC Comics are terraforming their fictional landscape yet again. Let’s take a look at exactly what’s transforming.
Death has symbolism. Sometimes how you die can be just as important, if not moreso, than how you live. The last issue of The Omega Men cements the DC Comics series as one of the best superhero books ever, with a finale that has me wondering if it was meant to be an improvised explosive device all along.
The much-heralded DC Comics: Rebirth comes out today, marking the beginning of a yet another new era for the publisher. Can it fix the malaise that’s been plaguing the DC Universe for years? Or will it make things worse?
When the reveal of DC Comics’ post-apocalyptic reboot of Scooby-Doo hit months ago, it featured images of Fred carrying a Big Freakin’ Gun, Velma holding a bizarre gamepad, and Shaggy wearing a lumbersexual-style waxed mustache and beard. Fans everywhere went “ruh-roh” upon seeing the cover for Scooby Apocalypse #1.…
DC Comics has another line-wide reinvention coming up. It’s exactly the kind of thing I should be excited about, but I’m more worried than anything.
A filmed adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s classic Preacher comic book series has been an on-again, off-again project for more than ten years. Yesterday, the first episode of the upcoming AMC TV series finally saw the light of day. Judging by what I saw, Preacher’s going to be bringing the word of God and…
Yesterday, we reported that Darwyn Cooke was being treated for cancer - according to family representatives, he passed away early this morning at the age of 53.
The Question was about as fallible a superhero as ever existed. In the very first issue of his solo comic in the 1980s, he got the crap kicked out of him and caught a bullet to the middle of his forehead at point blank rage. He died. He got better. But he never was quite good enough. That’s why I love him.
This might be the best Superman fan-fiction I’ve ever seen. Hell, it’s better than most of the Superman stories DC is putting out nowadays.
It’s going to be interesting to see what transpires when Batman finds out the identity of this particular teen vigilante. This unauthorized Robin will be lucky if getting fired is the only thing that happens to him.
Superman: American Alien is a reminder of how great the Man of Steel can be in the hands of people who care.
I was waiting a long time for one little exchange between the current versions of Batman and Jim Gordon, because Gotham City’s top police officer gets to show that he’s not a complete dumb-ass.
Grant Morrison delivered one of the best Superman stories ever with All-Star Superman. His long run on the Dark Knight infused Batman comics with more energy and heart than they’d seen in years. However, his take on Wonder Woman misses the mark.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a success because it isn’t funny. The film contains funny moments: Batman intoning a robotic “shit” before scrambling around like the biggest possible goof definitely caused a roar of laughter in the theatre when I watched the film. However, it’s not a movie that depends on being…
When Tim Burton’s Batman hit movie theaters in 1989, superhero adaptations were a risky gamble that few movie studios would approach. Twenty-seven years later, films based on The Dark Knight are pretty much a given. But which ones are the best?
The storyline that pits Clark Kent against Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman isn’t very good, barely held together by the flimsiest of threads. But this grudge match/team-up has already happened a lot in comics, and most times it’s been more compelling than Zack Snyder’s mess of a movie.
