The Internet is flooded with negative reviews of Warner Bros. Suicide Squad movie. Is it a reaction to a poor movie, or simply a reaction to a greater cinematic theme that audiences won’t recognize for several years?

It used to be that Monday holidays such as this one, Presidents’ Day, would give me fits! It had to do with the fact that New Comic Book Day is usually Wednesday, and a holiday like today would screw up the delivery schedule like crazy! Thankfully, that’s not the case these days!

DOCTOR WHO
BBCDoctor WhoEditorialFeatured

I am Canadian. A lot of Canadian culture is tied up in English culture and the media or customs that we, as a country, have retained from our commonwealth roots. As such, the contemporary Doctor Who phenomenon (which is to say, following the 2005 reboot), hit Canada in a big bad way earlier than it hit the United States (where I live now). Throughout my high school and early university career I had friends extoll the virtues of Doctor Who to me, I even saw a few episodes most notably The End of the World, and remained thoroughly unconvinced that

San Diego Comic Con first Timer Feature Image copy

This year was my first year attending San Diego Comic-Con. Evidently, it was much to the shock of everyone I know, but that’s probably just because I live in Los Angeles which, all things considered, is pretty close to the action. I honestly didn’t expect to enjoy myself. If you are not one for crowds or strangers, San Diego Comic-Con is probably not the place for you. Being on the shorter side of the spectrum, I got many poster tubes in the face, elbows in the chest (doubly bad as a female), and scooters driven over my feet just because

Winston Churchill tells us that heroes fight like Greeks, but then why are there so few Greek superheroes? At least we still have Wonder Woman.

All girls like Wonder Woman. It’s practically an adage in the comic book community. Well, I’m a woman who had zero interest in Wonder Woman, Diana Prince or whatever else you wanted to call her until a few short weeks ago. Let me explain to you why I wouldn’t wonder and where my conversion lies.

Lady Thor 03
EditorialFeaturedMarvelThor

This week heralds the beginning of the already-infamous Lady Thor story arch written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Russel Dauterman. I’m a lady, I read the issue first thing this morning and I have some opinions about it. First off, let’s go over the biases: I’m not a regular Thor reader, but I have a working knowledge of the characters, settings and recent events in the run and I thought the idea of Lady Thor was pandering. I feared that this issue, helmed by two male creators, could read as condescending and heavy-handed, rather than presented as an interesting

With DC and Warner Brothers pushing to develop their cinematic universe in a similar, but totally unique way from Marvel Studios, a lot of titles have been scheduled to take to the silver screen in upcoming years. However, taking a step away from Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, DC Comics has several astounding properties that absolutely deserve to make it to the screen in their own right. I now humbly present you with my Top Five Comic Properties Warner Bros. Needs to Develop for Movies:   5. Jeff Lemire’s Earth One Teen Titans Teen Titans just had a pilot ordered

The Avatar franchise of television shows is something that I give a lot of credit to for the portrayal of strong, diverse female characters and when Legend of Korra was announced starring a teenaged female Avatar it seemed like the logical next step in the development of this world. SPOILER: I am going to talk in some detail about events of the most recent season of Legend of Korra, if you haven’t watched it and are planning to, you might want to come back later. Legend of Korra would probably be a lot more successful is Korra were at all
