COMICS PORTAL: ‘Crisis’ Fever

As I’m writing this, I’ve just completed watching the first episode of The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths event as well as the initial Aftermath show. Being a DC fan, I loved a lot of what I saw, and am grieving for the loss at the end of that first hour. This made me reflect on how DC handled things pre-event, and what they might have done better. And I dreamed a little bit about what could be.

COMICS PORTAL: Can Hero Teams Be Revived?

In the last few days, I read online that Invaders from Marvel Comics, based on the classic team from World War II, is being cancelled after issue #12 coming in December. At the same time, DC is reviving Legion of Super Heroes and Justice Society of America. Each one of these groups have had their time in the spotlight, but can they find an audience in another time?

Comics Portal: Con Season Starts to Wind Down!

Baltimore Comic-Con is one of those great con experiences each year because they focus on comics! Yes, they do have some media guests, but they are often mostly known for comic- or genre-related shows! Happy 20th, BCC!

As much as I enjoy Baltimore Comic-Con, it also signals the time of the year when convention season begins to seriously wind down. I can’t help but think that Prince was right when he said, “Life is just a party, and parties weren’t meant to last.” Neither does con season.

COMICS PORTAL: Happy Halloween ComicFest 2019!

I know this is somewhat early to be talking about this subject, but I felt it important to ride a certain hobby horse of mine—supporting Halloween ComicFest again this year! It takes place on Saturday, October 26!

I think Free Comic Book Day continues to soar even higher every year, and I hope the same can be said about Halloween ComicFest coming this month as well!

Comics Portal: Celebrating Batman Day 2019

This past Saturday, September 21, was the yearly celebration of DC’s best-known character, Batman. It was also part of the 80th anniversary event for the Dark Knight, and it received a lot of attention. I was interested in seeing how it would go, especially since Batman has been my favorite hero since I discovered his last name was my first name. Oh, and it was possible, no matter how unlikely, that he was someone I could emulate if I tried hard enough!

COMICS PORTAL: DragonCon 2019, WOW!

Just when I thought I’d seen everything possible in the comic con universes, along came Dragon Con! I had heard it was crowded in the past, and there were a lot of people there, but the benefits far outweighed any potential inconveniences!
