Rumors Swirl That Darkseid Will be The Justice League Villain (And Why You Shouldn’t Believe Them)

Rumors Swirl That Darkseid Will be The Justice League Villain (And Why You Shouldn’t Believe Them)

Rumors have been circulating around the internet this morning, stemming from a piece on Latino Review, that Darkseid is to be the villain of the forthcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE movie from Warner Brothers/DC. While this choice appears to make a great deal of sense (given the character’s central role in bringing the League together in present continuity), it is troubling that this is already being picked up by a number of sites, including ComicBook.com, AICN, Examiner.com,…

Studio Seeks AMAZON Star

In the last few days, rumors have been swirling that Warner Brothers and DC Comics are looking to renew their efforts to bring one of the longest-running properties in comics to the small screen. Despite the abysmal failure of the David E. Kelly-penned Wonder Woman pilot starring Adrienne Palicki, the studio appears to be moving forward, albeit in a different direction, with a show currently code-named “AMAZON.” Entertainment Weekly reported on Thursday that they’d obtained…

Some Classic Elements in ARROW

Some Classic Elements in ARROW

For those fans still suffering from some lingering grumpiness over DC Comics’ move to the New 52 continuity, this week’s episode of ARROW on the CW Network was a welcome walk down memory lane. It was widely publicized that Wednesday’s show, “Muse of Fire,” showcased another wealthy masked vigilante. No, not the one you’re probably thinking of. The featured guest star was Helena Bertinelli. Ably portrayed by the icy Jessica De Gouw, Helena is a…

DC Rumored To Be Bringing On The Villains

DC Rumored To Be Bringing On The Villains

According to Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool, a number of sources are reporting that DC Comics will be featuring the villains of the DC New 52 in an upcoming arc. This is not the first time that DC has launched such an initiative, but it is the first time that such an event has occurred in the New 52 universe.  From that perspective, it makes a great deal of sense that such a thing would…

Retrovirus

Retrovirus

If you tossed Outbreak into a blender along with Jurassic Park, then peppered it with a dash of Encino Man, you’d probably get something similar to RETROVIRUS. I decided to give this latest Image release a chance largely on the strength of some of the past work by the creative team of Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. While my reading was primarily centered on things like All-Star Western, the writing was always tight enough that…

The most renowned escape artist in the world, possibly of all time, he spent the latter years of his life debunking hoaxers who attempted to bilk unknowing rubes out of hard-earned coin with cheap parlor tricks they passed off as magic.       But what happens when he runs into people who aren’t…

“Womanthology: SPACE #2”

“Womanthology: SPACE #2”

After a successful Kickstarter campaign launched the Womanthology: Heroic graphic novel, the female-created anthology series has returned with the IDW-published Womanthology: Space series. Comic shop shelves don’t see many anthology comics these days. IDW is one of the few publishers brave enough to offer them. An anthology featuring an all-woman creative team is braver still. Marvel has done it recently to great acclaim, but in the case of the Womanthology series all proceeds go to…
