Black Adam: Don’t even bother

Can you smell what the Rock is cooking? If it’s an anti-hero superhero movie for the struggling DC Universe? Then it’s a steaming turd burger covered in cliché sauce and too much exposition! Johnson wants to be the next Ahnold … Continue reading

RIP Kevin Conroy

Sad to hear the person who was the voice of Batman for several decades passed away. Adam West put his mark on the character but Kevin really made Batman synonymous with him since he landed the role for the 1992 afternoon … Continue reading

RIP Alan Grant

Sad to read the news about this comic book writer passing who oddly had the same name as Sam Neill’s character in Jurassic Park. He was part of DC Comics’ influx of UK-based writers and artists who made comics and superheroes … Continue reading

RIP George Perez

I hope the world gives me a break for a while on all these damned obits I’ve been writing as another great in comic books passed Friday. Sadly, George’s passing was a matter of when since he had been diagnosed … Continue reading

RIP Neal Adams

Yet another sad passing I found out later, thanks a lot New York Times! But, better late than never. The legendary comic-book artist Neal Adams died last Saturday at age 80 and for us nerds, he was a big deal. Back … Continue reading

Welcome to November 2021!

Originally I was going to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Call of Cthulhu debuting as a roleplaying game but it wouldn’t be sincere. I’ve only played the game a few times and I am trying to get more familiar with it because … 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 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

DC Comics and Diamond part ways

Yesterday, DC announced that it will have all its comic books, novels, etc. distributed by two new companies this Summer. For over 25 years, Diamond Comic Distributors has been the sole solution if you buy your stuff from direct-sales stores … Continue reading

Joker: Worth Seeing

I ran out of true Horror movies to review for this October but given how the last couple years have been a shit show under Orange Foolius, I think this interpretation fits the bill. In short, I liked it immensely … 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

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

Shazam! (aka Captain Marvel): Worth Seeing

Finally another notch in the win column for DC. It accompanies Wonder Woman and not the dreadful Justice League, Batman v. Superman, Man of Steel or the by-the-numbers Aquaman. A less-serious adaptation of their Captain Marvel (known as Shazam by stupid people … Continue reading

Aquaman: Worth Seeing*

I initiate Aquaman with an asterisk because it’s good but it just isn’t terribly original while succeeding in making one of DC’s least interesting superheroes watchable, today, in a few years I doubt it. Sure, the character started becoming more appealing when … Continue reading
