Author’s Note: Random Access Memory is me looking back at the specific comics that shaped my life. Each month I go back in time – in five year intervals – to examine key comics that came out those months. (The idea is that after five years of monthly columns, I will have covered an entire lifetime – in this case, fifty years – of reading comics.) Starting this month I will also list all the comics I read that particular month. This will afford readers the opportunity to chastise me for not reading specific comics, and/or laugh at the horrible,
Barry Allen may be able to travel through time…but we can’t. So to find out what’s ahead on The Flash, DC All Access spoke to Grant Gustin, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker and Carlos Valdes about what’s coming up on The Flash Season 2. Can you say “Killer Frost”?
Having seen one of their first adventures, now it’s time for us to join the Justice League Of America in their final adventure. (At least until the next time-rending catastrophe brings them out of mothballs.) Your Major Spoilers review of Convergence: Justice League Of America #1 awaits!
Many an internet wag has derogatory things to say about the “Justice League Detroit.” Time now, Faithful Spoilerites, not to bury these young heroes, but to praise them. Yes. Even Vibe… Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Justice League Of America #236 awaits!
Last night’s episode of The Flash, once again featured a number of nods to characters and events from the DC universe. Did you catch them all? Take the jump for ten fun facts and nods to the DCU (warning: potential spoilers ahead)
If you were paying close attention to the premiere episode of The Flash, you heard the name Ronnie Raymond’s name dropped as one of the STAR Labs people who were “lost” in the explosion. Does that mean Firestorm is on the way? Yes. Yes it does.
Even though the CW’s pilot episode of The Flash leaked online almost a month ago, San Diego Comic Con aired the episode today before their second comics-based show, iZombie, was slated to make it’s debut. In the end iZombie was a no show stating “cast changes” ominously – a similar fate which has befallen NBC’s Constantine given the early fan reaction to their own leaked pilot.
This week, I have a great conversation with Sterling Gates, who has been bringing many DC Comics stories and characters to life including Supergirl, a Man of Steel prequel book and, until it’s recent cancellation, Justice League’s Vibe. This interview took place before the recent news, but Sterling gives us so much good information about the character and diversity in comics that I had to share that with you. Also, Mr. Gates talks about his intriguing roommate, and the story is just in time for Halloween! Don’t miss it! Then everything wraps up with the latest “News & Previews!” http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/traffic.libsyn.com/majorspoilers/wcomics104.mp3
Another offering from DC’s New 52 (though its getting quite old); this time its Vibe. You know, Vibe, from the old Justice League Detroit comic, or from the currently running Justice League of America comic. Yeah, I don’t know why they brought him back either. It was probably to appease the great power that is Major Spoiler’s very own Matthew Peterson, seeing as how he and Geoff Johns are the only people with fond memories of him. Does Vibe hold up on his own? Find out after the jump!
The new Justice League of America débuts with a whoppingly ridiculous 54 covers, with Geoff Johns on script and David Finch handling art. Will Justice League of America #1 have you declaring “America, F yeah!” or just mumbling “America… ehh… whatever…”? Stoke your patriotic pride as Major Spoilers reviews Justice League of America #1 (this reviewer got the Indiana cover).
Press Release A few days after the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (S.P.A.C.E.), Michael S. Bracco (BIRTH, NOVO) and H.C. Noel (MR. SCOOTLES) are both still reeling from the creator-friendly show. Bracco, who received a finalist award for his graphic novel BIRTH, had this to say about his 2nd time at the show, “SPACE is a great show to do.Â I love the vibe of the show, the true sense of a comic community and being among collegues of such a high caliber.”Â A handful of select creators managed to qualify as a finalist for the S.P.A.C.E. prize (which
