H.Bomberguy is Currently Raising Tons of Money for a Trans Charity Via Donkey Kong 64 H.Bomberguy is Currently Raising Tons of Money for a Trans Charity Via Donkey Kong 64

YouTuber H.Bomberguy, also known as Harris Brewis, is someone primarily known for their videos about disproving pseudoscience and various pop culture, uh, stuff, but this weekend, he decided to play the Nintendo 64 game Donkey Kong 64 to 101% completion while streaming on Twitch in order to raise money for the…

Let Lindsay Ellis Explain "Death of the Author" To You Let Lindsay Ellis Explain "Death of the Author" To You

Have you ever heard the phrase “Death of the Author” during some intellectual conversation and just nodded along, not understanding what it meant, but afraid to ask? Worry no more! Lindsay Ellis, Transformers scholar and student of media, has all the explanation you need with this video, including two different…

Hypothetical TV: Metropolis Hypothetical TV: Metropolis

Back in January of 2018, it was announced that the streaming service of DC Universe would add on another live-action show (in addition to Titans, Doom Patrol, and Swamp Thing): Metropolis, a prequel series about Lois Lane and Lex Luthor “as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and…

Contribute to this IndieGoGo Campaign to Help William Messner-Loebs Contribute to this IndieGoGo Campaign to Help William Messner-Loebs

I’ve written before about William Messner-Loebs, a comic book writer and artist who was big in the ‘90s (he wrote for The Flash, Wonder Woman, and The Maxx) before having a lot of bad luck resulted in him and his wife becoming practically homeless. Now, there is an IndieGoGo campaign called A Benefit Book for William…

"Leap of Faith": Thoughts on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse "Leap of Faith": Thoughts on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

When I sat down to watch Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I knew it was going to be a good movie, but I didn’t realize just how good. I thought, “Well, I saw all the trailers, so I probably saw all the best bits,” but I was wrong about that, too. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is probably one of the best animated…

Some Needless Arrowverse Speculation Some Needless Arrowverse Speculation

So the final part of the three-part “Elseworlds” crossover aired today. Over the course of The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl, we have gotten a lot of Easter eggs, a pretty awesome Batwoman, and now a teaser for something much bigger on the horizon.

What If Other Comic Book Movies Were Named Like Birds of Prey? What If Other Comic Book Movies Were Named Like Birds of Prey?

So last month, it was announced that the Birds of Prey movie was, in fact, actually titled Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). A joke title that turned into the real one, the title is obviously indicative of the tone of the movie, going for something a lot more funny and lighthearted…

Infinity Wars, Spider-Geddons, and Immortal Hulks: The Current State of Marvel Comics (Pt. 1) Infinity Wars, Spider-Geddons, and Immortal Hulks: The Current State of Marvel Comics (Pt. 1)

Keeping up with comics can be a hassle. There are so many of them and they come out every month. And even though Stan Lee once said that they merely show the “illusion of change,” the status quo of many comics these days changes and we get new comics starting and old comics ending (or new comics ending, as it were).…

Let's Talk About Titans Episode 4 "Doom Patrol" Let's Talk About Titans Episode 4 "Doom Patrol"

So here we go. Let’s talk about the World’s Strangest Heroes.

Let's Talk About the First Three Episodes of Titans Let's Talk About the First Three Episodes of Titans

So I finally caved and got a subscription to DC Universe in order to watch Titans. (Okay, I got it because next week is the “Doom Patrol” episode and I goddamn love the Doom Patrol.) In any case, I watched the first three episodes of Titans and...well, they were surprisingly better than I thought. So let’s talk about…

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Directly Calls Me Out With "Time To Seize the Day" Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Directly Calls Me Out With "Time To Seize the Day"

I love Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and I also love not going outside. Going outside and doing stuff can be difficult, but not going outside? That’s super easy. That’s why “Time to Seize the Day,” where Rebecca tries (and fails) to go outside is so great.

Hypothetical TV: DC's All-Star Superman Hypothetical TV: DC's All-Star Superman

There is a rumor that Warner Bros and the CW want a Superman spin-off – and that the “Elseworlds” crossover would be a backdoor pilot for it (as well as one for the Batwoman spin-off). The problem with that, however, is how do you differentiate it with Supergirl? Or with any of the other Superman-related TV shows…

YouTube is Currently Down YouTube is Currently Down

I went to watch the new trailer for Legends of Tomorrow and found I couldn’t — instead of the imbedded trailer, it was just a random string of letters and numbers. So I went to YouTube and found it inexplicably down. This is, perhaps, the first time YouTube has gone down in decades, where it wasn’t a scheduled outage.

Hypothetical TV: Marvel's Immortal Iron Fist Hypothetical TV: Marvel's Immortal Iron Fist

I will admit it: I was massively disappointed when Netflix cancelled Iron Fist. The second season had been such a massive improvement and I really wanted to see where the stories of Colleen Wing (the new Iron Fist) and Danny Rand (with his new chi-powered guns) went. Hopefully, Disney will pick up the show and give it…

Fuck You, Marvel.

Last week, at New York Comic-Con, Marvel announced that a five issue mini-series, Shadow of Vader, was going to be written by Chuck Wendig. Today, Chuck Wendig announced that Marvel had fired him. Why? Because his Twitter had been “too vulgar and negative.”

Watch a Brand New Promo for the Harley Quinn Animated Series Watch a Brand New Promo for the Harley Quinn Animated Series

It may premiere on October 12, but Titans isn’t the only show coming to the DC Universe streaming service: the animated series Harley Quinn is also due out and today, at New York Comic-Con, DC released the first promo, along with the voice cast.

Character Trailers Are Available Now for Titans Character Trailers Are Available Now for Titans

Titans will premiere on October 12, which means that DC Universe is upping the advertising for it. So far, the trailers haven’t really gotten much hype from fans, but today, DC released four trailers tailored towards each character.

Captain Marvel Gets Knocked Down Captain Marvel Gets Knocked Down

Boy, Carol Danvers sure does fall down a lot, right?

Comic Book News - 9/13/18 Comic Book News - 9/13/18

For some reason, a lot of comic book news dropped today and, unfortunately, not all of it was good. io9 hasn’t covered it yet, so I’ll try to cover everything:

Watch Lindsay Ellis Talk About Authenticity on YouTube (Pop Culture Video Roundup - 9.11.18) Watch Lindsay Ellis Talk About Authenticity on YouTube (Pop Culture Video Roundup - 9.11.18)

The brilliant Lindsay Ellis has come out with what is perhaps her magnum opus: “YouTube: Manufacturing Authenticity (for Fun and Profit!).” It’s an in-depth look at how content creation on YouTube works, with an interview with Hank Green, and a look at two cake channels.
