Erica Henderson's Last Issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is Amazing and Sad Erica Henderson's Last Issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is Amazing and Sad

Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #31 is the last issue that Erica Henderson will illustrate, so it’s lucky that it’s such a great issue. It not only provides us with a great story, but also delves deep into the relationship between Doreen Green and her best friend Nancy Whitehead...although, depending on how you interpret the…

Far Cry 5's Soundtrack is Perfect for the Apocalypse Far Cry 5's Soundtrack is Perfect for the Apocalypse

I don’t normally play video games, much less listen to their soundtracks, but I read this article from Kotaku and got sucked into the soundtrack of Far Cry 5, which is made up of what I can only describe as “Christian cult apocalyptic rockabilly.”

Avengers: No Surrender is the Perfect Story to End One Era and Begin Another Avengers: No Surrender is the Perfect Story to End One Era and Begin Another

Avengers: No Surrender is a sixteen-issue weekly storyline that goes from Avengers #675 to Avengers #690, combining all three separate Avengers teams (the main Avengers, the U.S. Avengers, and the Avengers United Squad or “Uncanny Avengers”) together, along with the writers of all three books (Mark Waid, Al Ewing, and…

According to this news report, William Messner-Loebs is currently living out of his car. Loebs (who was also credited as Bill Loebs and Bill Messner-Loebs) was one of the more iconic creators who worked on both Wonder Woman (right after George Perez) and The Flash (right after the Crisis on Infinite Earths, where…

Here's A Great Article About Billy Graham, the First Black Artist on Luke Cage and Black Panther Here's A Great Article About Billy Graham, the First Black Artist on Luke Cage and Black Panther

Billy Graham wasn’t just the first black artist at Marvel. He was the only black artist at Marvel in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. And he just happened to have worked on both Luke Cage, Hero for Hire and on Don McGregor’s seminal run on Jungle Action featuring Black Panther. The New York Times has a great write-up…

What Does DC's Black Label Mean? What Does DC's Black Label Mean?

Today, DC Comics unveiled their new “edgy” imprint, “DC Black Label.” It will include darker stories done by a variety of well-known writers and artists including:

Read Tom King and Clay Mann's Story for Action Comics #1000 Read Tom King and Clay Mann's Story for Action Comics #1000

DC Comics released Tom King and Clay Mann’s five page story for Action Comics #1000, “Of Tomorrow,” fully on their website. Please read it. It is incredibly beautiful and heartfelt and now I want an entire Superman book just done by Tom King and Clay Mann. This is the Superman I want to read all the time.

The Unbelievable Gwenpool Finale is All About the Incredible Power of Comic Books The Unbelievable Gwenpool Finale is All About the Incredible Power of Comic Books

The Unbelievable Gwenpool was an odd book when it was first announced and it continued to be an odd book when it came out. The initial inspiration for the book was a variant cover for Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2, which depicted a female Deadpool wearing a hot pink and white costume lounging in a pool.

In the Wake of Black Panther's Success, the Movie the WB Should Make is Blue Beetle In the Wake of Black Panther's Success, the Movie the WB Should Make is Blue Beetle

In this article, Evan Narcisse laid out his argument for why Warner Bros. should make an Icon film in order to replicate the success of Black Panther. I respectfully disagree — I think Blue Beetle is a much, much better option.

The Comfort Food of Case of the Week Shows The Comfort Food of Case of the Week Shows

I watched my first episode of Midsomer Murders today. And even though it was the very first episode I watched, I still got the same comforting feeling watching it as when I do any another Case of the Week shows, like Columbo or Monk or House. It’s like walking into a restaurant where you know everyone there. It’s…

Here's a Bunch of Anti-Love Songs Just in Time for Valentine's Day Here's a Bunch of Anti-Love Songs Just in Time for Valentine's Day

Since I spent the last few days recovering from a bout of food poisoning, I’m really not in the mood to listen to any silly love songs or happy songs at all, especially on Valentine’s Day. In fact, here are some anti-love songs, starting with this current ditty from Rachel Bloom and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, “A Fuckton of…

Listen to People Sing an H. P. Lovecraft Poem to the Tune of Billy Joel's "Piano Man." Listen to People Sing an H. P. Lovecraft Poem to the Tune of Billy Joel's "Piano Man."

We all know that H. P. Lovecraft wrote some very, very weird horror stories in his life, but he also wrote quite a few weird poems, too. And in turns out that, per the internet, one of those poems can be sung to the tune of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.”

Fancasting the Fantastic Four Fancasting the Fantastic Four

So one of the good things about Disney becoming an all-consuming conglomerate that will probably soon control entire cities is the fact that the rights to the Fantastic Four will probably soon return back to Marvel Studios and we’ll get a Fantastic Four movie that is, you know, actually good. But...who should play…

Superman's Red Trunks Return in Action Comics #1000 Superman's Red Trunks Return in Action Comics #1000

It will also feature the debut of some writer named Brian Michael Bendis or something.

The Good Place Gives Us Swearing, Moral Particularism, and JORTLES! The Good Place Gives Us Swearing, Moral Particularism, and JORTLES!

There is a lot to love about The Good Place. The fact that they can seamlessly go from making douchey bro jokes to talking about Claire Danes’ stepfather’s writing on moral particularism is one. The fact that Kristen Bell looks smoking in her Mad Men get up is another. (Also, Jameela Jamil’s American accent is…

Now that 2018 is kicking into high gear, let’s look at everything that’s coming up and what, exactly, we know about them.

Tom King and DC Announce Sanctuary, a Book About a Superhero Trauma and Crisis Center Tom King and DC Announce Sanctuary, a Book About a Superhero Trauma and Crisis Center

Today, DC streamed live a panel called “The Aftermath: Battle & Trauma in Comics,” where Tom King (Batman, Mister Miracle, The Vision) talked with other people about trauma and PTSD and then announced that he would be writing a book for DC called Sanctuary, which would be about a superhero trauma crisis center.

The Unbearable Kindness of The Good Place The Unbearable Kindness of The Good Place

It’s probably no secret that I enjoy the philosophy of extistentialism — having written a few posts about it here — so it should come as no surprise that a show like The Good Place, where the characters are literally trying to be their best selves, should seem tailor made for me. (Plus, it has Kristen Bell and it’s…

Brand New Image of the Thirteenth Doctor Brand New Image of the Thirteenth Doctor

The official Doctor Who instagram has released another official photo of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor in her new outfit, in addition to the previous photo of her in the same outfit. The difference? Well, in this photo, she looks much happier, which is nice. The photo comes from the issue from Doctor Who…

Hypothetical TV: Jack Kirby, the King of Comics Hypothetical TV: Jack Kirby, the King of Comics

Last year was Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday and we still don’t have the awesome biopic for him that we deserve. So I figured I could make one up — and instead of a simple biopic, it would be a biographical mini-series, going through different eras in Jack’s life.
