    This is the first in a new line of DC Statues featuring the Women of DC. Based on pinups of the ‘40s and ‘50s (that’s 1940s and 1950s to you whipper snappers), this whole line intrigues me since I love ‘40s and ‘50s pinups and I love the Women of DC.DC has a promo video featuring the statue.

Admittedly, it's a little early for Easter, but since I don't get that weekend, I figured I should run with the idea I came up with a week early.

The soothing sound of the ocean waves is the only thing that has kept me from snapping the iPad in half and tossing it into the water. That might make it sound like I don’t like the game and that’s not true. I actually really like it a lot. I should hate it. I should have stopped playing it days ago and I should delete it from the iPad but I haven’t done that. I haven’t done…

    Comics Worth Reading

  • DayBlack #1-2

    19 Apr 2014 | 3:30 pm
    DayBlack by Keef Cross is a distinctively designed digital comic with a similarly unusual premise. A slave, picking cotton, is set upon by a vampire and turned. Now, Merce is a tattoo artist in small-town Georgia, a profession that allows him to drain blood while injecting ink. Also, the town is so polluted that the sky is always dark, perfect for his condition. Cross’ comic isn’t paneled in the typical fashion; instead, he captions his strongly designed, often full-page, images, mostly with his character’s internal monologue. You can see sample pages that demonstrate the…
  • The Amateur Astronomer’s Journal

    19 Apr 2014 | 12:41 pm
    Neil Slorance has put together a short, single-issue story about a home computer worker taking the night off to go look at the stars. It’s charming in its tone and straightforward about the need to stay in touch with the wider world. She — although the figure is simplified and almost gender-neutral, so I might be assuming — uses her father’s telescope and ponders her place in the greater world, reminding us of the importance of perspective and family. The style, as I mentioned above, is focused on the basics. The lead is cute, almost like a moving Fisher-Price figure…

That was followed by scenes of the typical blockbuster destruction, complete with voiceless choir music, to show us what the stakes are. The second trailer, out last month, emphasized the high…

Lumberjanes is a strong start to a girls’ adventure series written by Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis and drawn by Brooke Allen. There are evocations of all kinds of “girls in the woods” victim stories, starting with Little Red Riding Hood, but these scouts are no victims or shrinking violets. When they hear scary noises, they spring into action poses, ready to defend themselves and their friends. Mal, Molly, April, Ripley, and Jo are all…

But as the younger brother of the fallen X-Man codenamed Thunderbird, he hasn't always been a stalwart supporter of Professor Xavier's dream.

And I'd like to think that it's just not worth the effort for someone to come up with some crazy auto-voting system to cast a billion votes. I'm going to keep an eye on it.

    This apparently hit big at Sundance, and who doesn’t like Jean-Ralphio’s sister on Parks & Rec? Okay, maybe a lot of people, but Jenny Slate is fuckin’ funny. Anyway. Obvious Child is an indie comedy-drama about a young potty-mouth comedian (Slate) who finds out she’s pregnant and… just watch this. Obvious Child was written and directed by Gillian Robespierre. It hits theaters on June 6, 2014. It’s so indie, its official movie site is on Tumblr.

    So the trailer I posted for this earlier in the week was apparently a teaser. (I was a little late to the party on it, too.) But this is a brand new trailer, and hot damn is it good. The YouTube page for it says that the film is out in New York and LA on June 13, before a “nationwide” release on June 20th now.

    This is the most standard action movie trailer yet for X-Men: Days of Future Past, but also the best overview of the plot of the actual film (not to be confused with the premise/basic set-up of sending Wolvie back in time in order to blah blah blah). Pretty cool stuff. The movie finally comes out on May 23, 2014.

    Lynn’s Notes: Mrs. Baird was a background character who was meant to be put aside once Farley came into the family (her hobby was breeding Old English sheepdogs). To tie in with this, I also did a few strips about her being a friendly neighbour. I guess her short appearance struck a chord with some readers who asked to see her more often. In this Sunday page, I have her working in her greenhouse and talking to Michael — in a way that enabled me to say more about her personality and her past. If Mrs. Baird was based on anyone at all, it would have been the ladies who lived across…

    I’m on the fence regarding whether I want Ward to truly be a bad guy or just a double agent. Honestly, I think either choice could be interesting, although having him remain bad for an extended period of time would really mess with the dynamic of Coulson’s team and could make for some fun confrontations later on. Imagine what would happen if Ward and May got into a fight now?

Byrne was convinced that Todd McFarlane, Spawn creator, writer and erstwhile penciler, had dubbed the characters thusly for the purpose of taking a direct swipe at us.

For starters–and there’s no other way to put it–it didn’t feel like a comic book movie. Instead it felt more like a spy thriller that happened to feature Captain America as its lead in the same way that James Bond is the lead of Bond spy thrillers. Chris Evans has, over three films, morphed into the foremost of the movie heroes. The fight sequences have become even more dynamic (although occasionally edited with the salad shooter technique that made…

  • What a Cartoonist Learned about Bathroom Remodeling

    17 Apr 2014 | 5:08 pm
    After six long weeks, my family finally has a functional upstairs bathroom. This was my first experience with a major remodeling project. I took on the task of removing the existing mirror, taking apart the old vanity, and patching, repairing and painting the dry wall. (Thank you, Youtube and Lowes!) I budgeted the project at $2200 for parts and labor, and came very close to what I expected. I am satisfied with the project, but it was not without it’s own hiccups. My initial push on this remodeling project was in mid-December. Since then, I have been through no less than 4 contractors…

Sigh. Cannonball is two today! Amazing, right? Hard to believe that all the BABYWATCH '012 comics when I was growing a baby beard for a month were already two years ago. Good times, though.

  • Here’s An Idea I Had: Batman 3000

    Chris Sims
    15 Apr 2014 | 2:06 pm
    So as you may already be aware, I like Batman a lot, which means I think about Batman all the time, and ever since I started writing comics, I’ve been thinking about what I would do if I could do a Batman story. That’s pretty common, right? I mean, surely everyone has a Batman pitch in their back pocket just in case it ever comes up. One of mine, the one that I think could actually work really well, was The Batman of the 30th Century. The basic idea comes from two things: One, that the Legion of Superheroes is founded as a Superman spinoff, which means there’s a lot of…

For the uninitiated, Marc Brown is the creator of the famous literary and animated property, Arthur. Over the years, Brown has produced several books starring the aardvark Arthur Read, his family, and the many characters that make up his universe. Born on November 25, 1946 and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, Mr. Brown grew up hearing stories from his grandmother Thora. This led him to create stories of his own and would set him on…

Anyway, let’s get on with the show. As you remember from the last page I did, I’m showing some of the inner workings…

  • Thoughts on Warren Ellis Joining Dynamite

    Brian Gardes
    17 Apr 2014 | 11:56 am
    I am a huge fan of Warren Ellis.  If his name is on a book, there is a good chance I will at least give it the once-over and check it out.  So it was with great interest that I read about Warren Ellis signing with Dynamite to work on their Project Superpowers books. “Dynamite is honored to announce that Warren Ellis, one of the greatest and most respected comic book writers in comics, will be working with Dynamite for the very first time! Warren Ellis plans to take control of the Project Superpowers universe in late 2014, as Dynamite Entertainment continues to celebrate its 10th…

  • Indie Comic Review: Kingdom/Order part one

    Brian Gardes
    8 Apr 2014 | 5:34 am
    A few months ago I reviewed the preview of Reid Psaltis’ Kingdom/Order.  It left me with a haunted feeling which I could not shake.  It was moody.  It was disturbing.  It left me with more questions than answers.  In short, I wanted more. Thankfully, Psaltis is back with a complete first part of the book!  While there are more pages, and things are a bit clearer, everything that I loved about the preview is still in place! Kindgom/Order wordlessly follows a man as he searches for some sort of meaning in his life.  Through symbols and sounds it is clear that he is a part of the…

    One of the best parts of any comic convention is the creative energy which permeates everything.  Everywhere one wanders there is a sense of excitement as new ideas are explored and new concepts are brought to fruition.  One cannot help but get swept up in it all!  That is exactly what happened with Keri and I as we wandered the aisles of last week’s Emerald City Comicon. So, in addition to all the other projects we have on our plates, let me introduce you to our newest comic: If Coffee Were Like Comic Con!   The comics are updated daily over on our sister site, Kilted Comics.  Go…

  • The French Free Comic Book… Two Days

    Rich Johnston
    20 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    France does Free Comic Book Day differently. Firstly, they do it two weeks later, because they are lazy. Then they take two whole days to do it in. And they only give away eight free comics. See, it’s that lack of commitment that ensures France only has a massive comics industry. Hmmm. More here, when they get round to adding it.   The French Free Comic Book… Two Days

    What a great cartoon!Two stand out moments in this fine cartoon: the scene with Mickey trying to get his bike up the hill. Man, they animated the hell out of it. You can feel his struggle trying to get the bike up the hill. (When I rode bikes a lot, I had a rough time on steep hills. I know how Mickey feels!)The second is when the trolley handle starts laughing at Minnie. It strikes me as a classic Tex Avery moment and makes me laugh every time.

    Manga Therapy - Where Psychology & Manga Meet

  • Nanako Saeki - First Love of Evil

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    "I’ve given up. I quit…everything." When you’re in high school, things are often taken at face value. If you can build that value, you’re on your way to having a successful life. Of course, deep down, teenagers may resent what they have to do to get ahead. The Flowers of Evil’s Nanako Saeki, was a popular girl in school who managed to get the target of affection of the timid Takao Kasuga. The two went out at some point. However,because of the presence of Sawa Nakamura, Saeki becomes warped as she becomes jealous of the Nakamura/Kasuga relationship. While drama…

    When there’s a chapter that’s titled “Lots of Bodily Fluids”, you would probably go “Great. Fanservice again!”  But this series involves more than just swapping them and sweating them out. Akira Hiramoto’s Prison School is a comedy series that shows a good amount of emotional depth beneath its absurd display of sexual situations. The story goes as this: five boys are admitted to a high school that was previously an all-girls school. They become the center of attention and victimized for it. An underground secret student council of 3 girls takes…
  • Is Manga a Guilt Trip?

    As much as I enjoy manga and the many stories that have come out of it, there are things that bother me about the industry. Some of you may know about the horror stories surrounding Eiichiro Oda’s work schedule. An interesting blog post by a mangaka went in a direction that got me thinking - can you feel guilty about making and enjoying manga? Shuho Sato, the mangaka I’m referring to, has an enlightening series of articles called “Sato’s Road to Manga.” In entry #41, he points out what we should realize about manga, no matter how much discussions and arguments we…
  • The Bechdel Test for Manga and Anime

    5 Apr 2014 | 9:14 am
    In a lot of media you see featuring female characters, there usually isn’t a lot of depth to them. Sometimes, they only exist to talk about men and that’s it. While reading about an article about how Hollywood fails the Bechdel test, it got me thinking - how does it apply to the world of anime and manga, which is considered to be the most accepting fandom towards women? The Bechdel test is a test based off an old comic strip used to measure the impact female characters have in fictional series. There are 3 criteria that define the test. The first being that there has to be more…

The hotel was engaged in a dispute with the restaurant manager.  So no bar or restaurant, not even a simple breakfast.  I had some snacks, and there were food trucks for lunch.  Otherwise, nothing nearby on the shore in the early morning.

    (Not So) Tasty Video Game Trivia playpause - / Update RequiredTo play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin. Contributor Scott hosts a trivia game based solely on the Xbox 360 games that owns — which is damn near 200 games. Things get a little unfair when he reaches to the depths of his collection, basing questions off of obscure, still-cellophaned games from his collection.  Can you best us in this video game trivia?

    Cereal, The Matrix, Ninja Turtles, Mothers, & Corpses That Walk playpause - / Update RequiredTo play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin. On this week’s podcast, the panel discusses the finales of The Walking Dead and How I Met Your Mother (SPOILERS…a lot of them), as well as other current nerdy news. The conversation somehow gets distracted (as usual) with stories about our favorite cereals, whether or not we wanted to live in The Matrix, and a few thoughts about Megan Fox in the TMNT reboot.

  • Chi-Fi 2014

    1 Apr 2014 | 9:05 am
    On March 29, 2014, a few of us attended the first Chi-Fi, a new geek convention in Chicago, IL. Their official site claims Chi-Fi is a convention celebrating geekdom, and I would whole-heartedly agree. The convention isn’t centered around one facet of geekdom; it just celebrates everything nerdy. And unfortunately, due to some rude and unforeseen circumstances, the con had to make some last-minute changes, forcing this year to be more of a preview than a full-blown convention. But we still had a really good time and we are excited for next year’s full weekend event. Keep reading…

    “Sh*t My Dad Says” by Justin Halpern Why you’d like it: Do you need no-BS life advice from a grandfather you never had? Do you like books that expertly alternate between poop jokes and heartfelt memoirs? If you answered yes to both of those questions, then Shit My Dad Says might be the greatest thing you’ll ever read! Goodreads synopsis: After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, twenty-eight-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his seventy-three-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,”…
  • Album Review: “Fish Food” by Bonecage

    27 Mar 2014 | 1:49 pm
    Artist:  Bonecage Album:  Fish Food When I first listened to “Fish Food,” I was hit with a wave of nostalgia. What’s weird is that it wasn’t a wave of nostalgia about any songs or sound on the album — it was a nostalgia wave that pushed me back into a simpler time when the only jokes I thought about all the time related to dicks, sex, and poop. Let me back up here — I still quite frequently think about jokes like those — but not as much anymore, surprisingly. If one isn’t in the mood for such humor, this album isn’t for you. But if you…

  • Review: Vanguard

    Gemma Hart
    17 Apr 2014 | 10:40 am
    Vanguard is a British web-comic following a team of people who have superpowers or have been given “meta-gene enhancement” and follows the missions and adventures they get involved in. To start we are introduced to the numerous individual British superheroes via some really creative character cards. Detailed descriptions really make the characters come to life before we have even begun! The comic is delivered (like most web-comics) page-by-page, with an update each week. Creator/Illustrator/Writer Dan Butcher has clearly put a lot of effort in from the word go and it really does…
  • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D won’t return for Season 2

    This post contains major spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, you have been warned. After the pilot went out for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, it’s fair to say that I was less than impressed. In fact, it took almost until the mid-season break until the show became a consistently worthwhile watch and now that we’re finally getting into the good stuff, we see the entire organisation collapse upon itself in the latest of the Marvel movies, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, spelling the end of S.H.I.E.L.D as we know it. So where does that leave Coulson and his team? It seems…

    With Game of Thrones returning tonight, the internet is on fire with people worrying about spoilers. While you’re never going to block out all mentions of your favourite shows (who would want to anyway?) here’s a few tips on making sure no major plot points are spoiled for you this season… And if you’re the type of person who would hang a “Dumbledore Dies” banner over a motorway bridge, maybe watch this and educate yourself.   The post How To Avoid Spoilers appeared first on Comic Book Kid.

    I know intellectually there’s no right way to enjoy things, nor right things to enjoy. This doesn’t stop me from judging those who spend their time vegging out in front of Eastenders or Hollyoaks, however. It also doesn’t stop me mourning the choices of those who neglect awesome one-shot stories or those that have an end in sight in favour of staid, what we’ll from here on in refer to as ‘Hero Books’. Disclaimer: There’s plenty of people I know who manage to straddle both sides of the fence on this and good for them, but I’ve also met many that…

    FILLING OUT THE LEAGUEWith Hollywood it is never safe to assume that a film will be successful despite who is starring in it, who is directing and thinking that a sequel will be good because the first one was amazing. It isn't even safe to assume that others will like the movie that you do, which if the numbers are high enough, kill the franchise. Comic Book and superhero movies are no exception. Daredevil (2003), Green Lantern (2011), etc. However, for this article we will pretend that the follow-up movie to Man Of Steel (2013), which has many possible names so far (Man Of Steel 2? Superman…

    WWE GANG WARFAREFactions are beginning to pick up some steam in the WWE again. The Shield and The Wyatt Family are white hot, and just getting started. There were rumors of The Shield splitting up, and could still happen in the future or the WWE has seen an opportunity to add a little gang warfare to the mix of things for awhile. With the short lived Corporate Attitude (Corporate Kane and the Corporate Outlaws) and now the rebirth of Evolution (minus Ric Flair seemingly) it seems they are, at least until Extreme Rules. Can't blame them really given the success of The Wyatt's squaring off…

Even some of the American greats have been trained by Canadians. The aforementioned Kowalski trained stars like Triple H. Stu Hart had trained his sons of course, but also legends like Superstar Bill Graham.

They are the original dynamic duo, even though the role of Robin (and on occasion Batman) has been played by many. The most recent Robin of course was Damian Wayne, son of the Batman! Damian was a fan favorite for the most part as he met his cloned maker back in 2013 with Batman Inc #8. The folks over at Hero Complex have reported that this coming July, a one-shot called "Robin Rises: Omega" will be hitting the shelves and bringing Robin back into the mix of things. Peter J…

    IT'S SHOWTIME!!!Wrestling legend Sting, aka Steve Borden, recently appeared on the WWE Network as part of the Ultimate Warrior tribute and shared his thoughts and feelings on the late legend. As reported before, Sting has signed with the WWE. While many other sites chose to back track on the report with WWE not making anything official yet,  The Non-Geeky Nerd said that it was likely Sting and WWE not wanting to take away from nor over shadow the tragic events and allow time to celebrate The Ultimate Warriors life and career. A class act by all involved. Some may argue, but remember that…
