Justice League: the Snyder do-over

Allegedly, this Snyder Cut happened via HBO Max through the fans. Who these people are, I have yet to meet one. I do readily admit to enjoying Snyder’s 300 and he did the best job possible with The Watchmen, a story that … Continue reading

So far the Snyder Cut is rather weird

Jennifer split for Padre to have a long weekend with her mom, daughter and friend so I decided to use the time to finally watch the long awaited Snyder Cut of the terrible Justice League. Hmm. I wasn’t expecting this cameo … Continue reading

Wonder Woman 1984: needs more development/editing

It’s a good thing AT&T prepared for a beating by going with this sequel via streaming because 84 was another mediocre DC movie. What a pisser, I really liked the first one plus I was looking forward to the next chapter … Continue reading

RIP Chadwick Boseman

Such a damned shame too. I was really looking for to the Black Panther sequel and more Avengers movies because when I was a kid, he rescued them in the Seventies from some gravity-based villain (I guess Magneto was busy). He was young, … Continue reading

RIP Denny O’Neil

Another legendary person who helped mold modern comic books passed away peacefully in his sleep. Denny was a vanguard when it came to writing. Unlike many of his contemporaries at DC Comics, he was a journalist before contributing to Green Lantern … Continue reading

Disenchantment characters remade seriously

My friend Steve (or as I refer to him as Stvee) did these “serious takes” on six key characters from my fave Disenchantment as part of a recent art challenge. I threw in some extra money toward his Kickstarter for going … Continue reading

RIP Mort Drucker

Mort Drucker was a legendary artist. As Michael J. Fox once said, if you’re mocked in MAD by him, you’ve arrived. He was the TV/Film equivalent of Weird Al even though Mort was around first. He had an incredible style combining … Continue reading

My contribution to this year’s Teddy Bear toss

One upside to having all those Pinballz points is that I often have enough to score a toy for the Stars’ charity thingy. Last year it was Rick & Morty, this time I figured a kid would love to have … Continue reading

RIP Ernie Colón

Another great guy who worked in Comic Books passed away last week. I never gave his heritage any thought because he went by the Anglo version of Ernesto, ergo, he was an American like Jack “The King” Kirby (Jewish) or … Continue reading

Spider-Man: Far From Home: Worth Seeing

After a huge event movie (Aftermath) bringing 11 years of story to a close, one would think the trivial adventures and personal life of Spider-Man would be a letdown. Not so, Kevin Feige brilliantly found a way to give the … Continue reading

Brightburn: Worth Seeing!

An unusual combination of a Superhero origin story that transforms into a Horror movie. Not an easy feat but the people behind it succeed. Be warned, it did get pretty gruesome in how the victims meet their grisly fates. The … Continue reading

MAD goes into zombie mode after 67 years

I initially didn’t think anything was happening to MAD itself when comedian and senior editor Dan Telfer announced being laid off via Twitter. Then the deluge of news began about how the beloved satirical magazine was “ending” after 67 years. MAD‘s death … Continue reading

Groening returns to comics!

Almost year after Bongo Comics shut down, Matt Groening is back with Bapper Books! I’ve never been to the San Diego Comic Con and since it has become Hollywood’s bitch to peddle mostly mediocre IPs while bringing out the worst … Continue reading

Welcome to July with a shift in timeliness

For the last couple months I have been digging out slowly while sticking mostly to the chronological series of events with the exception of keeping the header art, color scheme and my exercise progression updated. Given the events of last … Continue reading
