While at DragonCon this year, I commissioned a sketch from artist David Wong. I’d seen some of his work in the past at DragonCon and was impressed. He doesn’t draw comics for the primary publishers, but he appears to make his living off his art. I just received my commission in the mail. The image […]

My thanks to Cary from THE UNIQUE GEEK for finding this one. Hilarious! If you can’t see the embedded video below, click here. This skit, ‘Almost Transformers’ was featured on an Australian comedy show, ‘Merrick and Rosso’. Check out other videos from them on their website.
Did you notice that Chuck Dixon included one of the ‘Bloodlines’ parasites in his last issue of ‘Batman & the Outsiders’? Seriously, dude. I wouldn’t lie to you. Check out ‘Batman & the Outsiders’ #10. So do you think that was Dixon’s way of flipping DC the bird, or do you think he was building […]
The first comic I bought as a collector was Secret Wars issue #2 back in sixth grade. Some of you may recall I wrote a post about this experience back in June. Before I begin my rant, I want to be sure you understand that Secret Wars issue #2 should in no way to be […]

Dude, I’m totally jazzed! It’s just been announced that DC Direct will be producing a Blue Devil action figure! That’s right, because I demanded it! Yup, just me. I can’t imagine anyone else besides me has been clamoring for this. Blue Devil just so happens to be one of my top five favorite superheroes of […]
I recently recorded an episode of Views from the Longbox with Michael Bailey in which we covered the 1988 story “Batman: Death in the Family“. The episode should be available for download within in a few weeks. “Death in the Family” is the story in which the second Robin, Jason Todd, was murdered by the […]
The new Star Trek movie is coming, whether you like it or not! And this time they are aiming to make Star Trek cool. Hard to believe, I know. Directing and producing this new Star Trek film is J.J.
