From stuff that is hot, and things that are not nearly as interesting – it’s Top Five. What is a hero without a sidekick? A way for the average reader, listener, […]

It’s time once again to turn our gaze to the octagon! Two characters enter, one will leave victorious! It’s the Major Spoilers Poll of the Week! As everyone knows, one of the keys to becoming a contender in the ring is to make sure you are eating a well balanced diet. This week, the gloves […]
This weekend, at Kapow! in London, DC Comics co-publisher, Dan DiDio announced that the company will reintroduce a previously existing DC character who was straight and will now be “one of our most prominent gay characters.”
A trope is a recognizable theme used in storytelling. The kidnapped princess, the final battle, the training montage, these are all tropes we have seen again and again. Usually recognition of a familiar trope is a good thing, it lets the audience know how they should feel about things and sets them up either for a satisfying conclusion or an excited twist.

or, OH thank HEAVENS it is finally over! With a sigh of relief I opened the pages of the last issue of Countdown, and with a similar sigh I closed them a few minutes later. They had not finished badly, as previous issues had suggested they might. Though they finished leaving me baffled, it was […]
Though this is a week late, and the review for the next episode will soon be following, I decided that I would uphold my end of the bargain and review Countdown to Final Crisis #3. Mainly, because I want to provide ~wyntermute~ with another review that isnâ€™t 5/5, but also because I said I would […]
