COMICS PORTAL: My Batman Superman Movie

Can it be that San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) is over already? Yes, it is, but expect for news to continue to dribble out from the event on the Web over the next few weeks. It takes that long for some people to get around to releasing info they picked up there! (I had that problem when I was there, anyway!)

COMICS PORTAL: The Calm Before the SDCC Storm

You may have noticed that there’s been a reduced amount of comics news happening recently (the BOOM!/Archaia merger notwithstanding), but the flow of information from many comics companies seems to have slowed down significantly. Why is that? There’s this “little” event called the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) happening from July 18 to 21, and it’s to blame!

COMICS PORTAL: Moving Away from Trades

For years, comic books have suffered from what has been called “trade paperback-itis.” Many stories have been told in the exact number of issues made to fit inside a “graphic novel” or “trade” format. Well, it seems like times, they might be a-changing.

COMICS PORTAL: Getting Caught up on Trades

It may come as a surprise to some folks, but even I can’t keep current on everything I’m interested in! So, when I actually got some free time recently, I dug into my stack of unread trades and pulled out some stories about women that I hadn’t yet experienced. I thought I’d share my reactions to them with you this week, but be warned – they were released some time ago!

COMICS PORTAL: Getting More Out of My Comics Convention

In the last couple of years, I’ve attended more comics and sci-fi conventions than I ever have before! This year, I’ll be attending my usual local SF cons (geek-speak shortening for “conventions”), including Farpoint and Shore Leave, both located north of Baltimore in Maryland. I’ve been going to those for years! However, I ventured out into unfamiliar territory by going to cons in San Diego and New York City during 2011. I found they are much bigger events than I’m used to. I knew going into them that they would be learning experiences, and boy, were they!

COMICS PORTAL: My Justice League movie

The movie of the summer for me will be Man of Steel, and I can’t wait until it swoops into theaters on June 11. I think the commercials look awesome! (I did enjoy Iron Man 3, by the way!) Word has it that Henry Cavill will appear in the upcoming Justice League film, so if Man of Steel is a big success, maybe Superman can help launch the long-desired JL movie. Since we have some time to consider how to move forward, what’s the best thing to do? Fortunately, I have a few ideas…

COMICS PORTAL: Could Comics be Censored?

Now that Congress is taking up the issue of gun control due to recent violent events in the U.S., we can expect they’ll be looking for someone or something to blame these terrible occurrences on. Some already have come out and said that they think violent video games are at fault, desensitizing players using rapid-fire guns to murder large groups of “people.”
