March 6, 2017 1:42 pm Conor, thank you for reading DEATH OF HAWKMAN. Nice to hear that there was true in the title. I was curious about it but not enough to, y'know, buy and read the book myself.
March 1, 2017 5:44 pm By the way, that Clark Kent is clearly the Matrix Supergirl from the '90s, right? Because everything from the '90s is being trotted out again in the DC books. Also, I think that Action Comics should be #974 and not #17.

February 4, 2017 10:15 pm I loved it. This is exactly what I want out of a comic book TV show. Also, it's on NBC, so it's on Hulu, unlike all the things on the CW. That means I can watch it streaming easily, which I plan to do. I'd give it 4.5/5.
February 3, 2017 10:18 pm Man, hearing you guys describe the plot kinda bummed me out. Archie is, to me, an escape. I still buy and read the occasional digest and have bought plenty of those Pep Digital collections of theirs. I've enjoyed the rebooted Archie and love love loved Zdarsky's run on Jughead. But, man, nothing of those things sounds like it's in the show. I do hope that the success of this show and other dark alternative takes on Archie, such as Afterlife with Archie, don't become the standard take on the characters. Here's hoping they keep at least a little pocket of fun for folks to dive back into.
January 10, 2017 2:33 pm Whenever a comic is in B&W and it gets colored, I don't mind. Bone looks great in color. Same with Raina Telgemeier's old Babysitter's Club books, which got a similar treatment. But going back and RE-coloring books? Especially Silver Age stuff? I hate it. I hate it so much. Seeing Kirby with modern coloring looks wrong to me.
December 23, 2016 11:45 pm I was surprised to see Mads Mikkelsen not play a villain. Kudos to that.
December 23, 2016 11:41 pm Eh. Felt extremely superfluous. I'd rather see the story move forward, not rewound. That's also why I can't get into the Marvel comics.
November 23, 2016 11:46 pm Guys, can you please reopen the site long enough for me to write 2000 words about how I organize my comics shelves? There's no other outlet I have where anyone would have even the remote possibility about giving a shit and I have so much to say and so many photos of shelves to diagram.
September 11, 2016 6:52 pm I'm hoping that someone writes a Justice League story where pre-Flashpoint Superman, Booster Gold, and Cyborg spent at least half an issue talking in detail about their various football careers and the patrons vote for it so Ron is forced to read it.
