Tony Todd

Next up from my fun time at GACC, meeting actor Tony Todd! Tony is a staple in numerous Sci-Fi TV shows (Stargate, Babylon 5, The Flash) but he’s probably best known to the general public as titular character in the Candyman … Continue reading

RIP Steve Ditko

Steve Ditko is another famous artist who helped make Marvel Comics a big deal, namely through his co-creation/drawing of Spider-Man. If I recall correctly (and I hope my friend who actually draws comics can chime in), Stan Lee chose Ditko … Continue reading

Superman: Red Son

Part one of three showing Marx’s influence as recognition of his 200th birthday, I’ll start with the Elseworld (DC’s version of Marvel’s What If? comics) story pondering the question; What would the world be like if Superman were raised in the … Continue reading

RIP Margot Kidder

Margot was the Lois Lane for my generation via Superman (the best superhero movie ever made and I’m not a diehard fan of the character) and Superman II. I personally can’t recall her doing much else I’ve seen because her infamous mental breakdown … Continue reading

Wonder Woman crossovers/team-ups

It has been a great year for Wonder Woman! Beyond her killer film, DC Comics featured the princess in three team-ups with complimentary heroes. Thankfully, Zak Snyder couldn’t screw them up. First is the a team-up we could only have … Continue reading

Green Arrow! On a shirt

My second T-Shirt acquisition from WizWorld. Before he was a poor-man’s Batman via Arrow on the CW, Green Arrow was Batman, Green Lantern and Hawkman’s Liberal foil. I wish DC Comics would bring back the Errol Flynn-influenced look Neal Adams gave … Continue reading

Justice League:…just boring and unnecessary

When it comes to the big two superhero comic book companies, I have leaned toward DC since college. Hard to believe there was a time when DC’s movies were better too (Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman remains one of the best). Now … Continue reading

Another clever mash-up shirt with The Superfriends

It’s OK, I didn’t get the joke right away either since I have rarely seen the sitcom. I was more thrilled to see Hawkgirl in her Hanna-Barbera incarnation.

Happy Batman…uhhh, Harley Quinn Day

Yesterday, DC chose to honor the 25th anniversary of Harley Quinn joining their comic-book universe through the awesome cartoon. Originally brought in to be the Joker’s number-one henchman and at times, love interest, Harley has since crossed over into the … Continue reading

Here’s to the guy who is responsible for numerous characters in the big two which changed the industry. For many, Jack was the art side (and to some extent writing) for Marvel’s breakout success  with their early titles: The Fantastic Four, … Continue reading

Happy Tenth Anniversary Rogues Gallery!

After being Dragon’s Lair Round Rock for six years, the DL owner sold off this branch to Randy and David and probably some other investors…then they renamed their store Rogues Gallery, probably in honor of the Flash. I didn’t get … Continue reading

RIP Adam West

Pretty sad news over this weekend regarding the man who was the first Batman I knew as a little kid. By then Batman was being shown through syndication for afternoon TV. It was so inspirational that my brother and friends often … Continue reading

Wonder Woman: Must See

It’s about time they got DC’s third longest-running character on the big screen. I readily admit, doing Wonder Woman well has always been a challenge. Unlike Batman and Superman, this character has undergone several major reboots in her comic book. Originally, Diana shows … Continue reading

Let’s hear it for Wonder Woman

Technically, Diana’s 75th birthday was last year because her comic book debut was 1941 but let’s just say it took a while for comics to get distributed plus DC is doing all the cool stuff this June. She’s also a … Continue reading
