Back Issues: WTF Logan? 5 Dumb Wolverine Moments

Welcome to another edition of “Back Issues”, the column where I examine a character, concept or theme making waves in comics today through issues from the past.

The film marks the final time Hugh Jackman will sheathe his claws (unsheathe his claws? Both?) in the role that made him a star, and…

Captain America Says: Vote!

Captain America Says: Vote!

Today, for Election Day, we present a special guest editorial from Steve Rogers, Captain America.   My fellow Americans. Steve Rogers here. And before you ask, no I am not the Steve Rogers working for HYDRA. Not sure whose idea THAT was.
