September 14, 2014 9:59 pm Josh's Matthew McConaughey sounds an awful lot like Bill Clinton.
August 3, 2014 8:50 pm Sheesh. No love for Howard the Duck? I was thrilled to see him at the end. It was a really cute gag I thought, and I've love to see the character done justice in a movie one day.
November 24, 2013 9:14 pm Mateus Santolouco does great work. He's the regular artist on IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.
November 10, 2013 8:07 pm Action Comics #25 was awesome, but it isn't the only game in town when it comes to quality Superman comics. Adventures of Superman is a fantastic book week in and week out.
August 13, 2013 11:31 am Kudos for posting Ultimate Spider-Man, rather than Spider-Man 2. USM was SM2's better in every way.
June 26, 2013 8:20 pm I'm not a huge fan of Birthright. Whereas Man of Steel felt like it had a lot of new, interesting ideas for Superman, Birthright was more of a reversion to silver age Superman. It was a step backward for the character, rather than a step forward into something new. I especially didn't like Clark's preoccupation with getting in touch with "his heritage". Byrne's Superman was the ultimate immigrant. He left his past in the past and embraced his new identity as an earthling. Waid's Superman let his Kryptonian past define him, which is one of my biggest gripes with Man of Steel.
June 13, 2013 11:41 am Lex Luthor: Man of Steel seems like a glaring omission, but mega-kudos for including The Unauthorized Biography. I'd also suggest checking out Superman: President Lex, a trade that collects one of my favorite arcs of the 2000 Superman revamp.
June 7, 2013 1:48 pm I really miss pre-New 52 Superman, guys. I miss old Krypto, I miss Ma Kent being alive, I miss Conor living in Smallville, I miss Supergirl not being insane, I miss Superman not being hated/feared by the earth population as if he was a member of the X-Men, I miss EVERY SINGLE COSTUME-- I just hate the new status quo in pretty much every way.
June 3, 2013 1:15 am I completely agree with Paul that IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is building a robust continuity at a surprising pace. The book is less than two years old and we already have a really solid grasp on the world in which the turtles live. The microseries issues do wonders for giving the characters and settings a larger context without sacrificing the narrative flow of the main book. And I totally agree with Frog_Man that Mateus Santolouco is KILLING IT on art. He's a godsend. Can't wait for more of Cityfall.
May 28, 2013 1:54 pm Superman Adventures was the best Superman book of the 90's as well. Both the DCAU and its comic tie-ins were writing circles around the "real" Batman/Superman scribes of the time.
