Master Bruce isn’t here right now. But Alfred Pennyworth is more than happy to take out Gotham’s trash. »
For decades, Lois Lane’s been the butt of jokes involving Superman’s double identity. A Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who gets fooled by a pair of glasses? Come on, girl. This week, Lois puts it all together. And, yeah, she’s pissed.
This five second clip from the story trailer for LEGO Dimensions is more entertaining than 75 percent of DC Comics’ massive universe-clashing, office-moving Convergence event. »
Do you miss Angel? You remember it, right? The Buffy spinoff where the hunky vampire-with-a-soul was a PI who worked cases involving mystical creatures? Well, there’s a new comic book series that’s similar in concept but with a few different twists. »
Evan isn’t the only person reading comics around here. Here are some recent surprise favorites of mine. I didn’t expect to be recommending any of these to you: »
Let’s all be glad Stan Lee is still alive. Let’s all be sad that the words “Stan Lee” are still appearing in front of new things. »
What’s up with those Arkham Knight soldiers running around like crazy? Batman hasn’t even done anything yet. Gosh, guys.
Fourteen years ago, a run of X-Men comics took Marvel’s famous mutants out of superhero costumes, put them in rockstar leather uniforms and detoured away from years of dead-end storylines. The X-Men got much cooler. This week, we get to see what happens when the X-Men’s cool runs out.

Batman is Bruce Wayne. Except, of course, when he isn’t. Other folks have worn the pointy ears of Gotham City’s shadowy superhero over the years, too, and every new Batman brings a few changes with them as well. In the comics these days, we’ve got a cop in a robot suit as the Dark Knight. The other elements associated… »
A few months ago, DC Comics teased that its big status quo shifts would mean serious trouble for the romance between the Man of Steel and the Amazing Amazon. But don’t worry, guys: Clark and Diana are doing fine. Just ask the Suicide Squad. »
