Suicide Squad: they’re bad guys, it’s what they do (new trailer).

From director David Ayer comes Suicide Squad, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (“Ali,” “The Pursuit of Happyness”), Oscar winner Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Focus”), Joel Kinnaman (“Run All Night,” “The Killing”) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”). It feels good to be bad… assemble a […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (film review by Frank Ochieng)

One would think that the ultimate showdown between two of the most iconic super-heroes would make for some downright compelling action-oriented exploits against a landscape of angst and destruction. Plus, it certainly did not hurt that exhilarating filmmaker Zack Snyder (‘300’) was at the helm in bringing together the colorfully and concocted confrontation between The […]

Back Issue # 87    (magazine review)

It’s hardly likely to be surprising that with a certain Batman/Superman film on the horizon that ‘Back Issue’ wouldn’t have a look at their historic confrontations with their eighty-seventh issue. Where better to start that a look at ‘World’s Finest’, which often as not, was one step away from their individual titles at the time. […]

Black And White by Jackie Kessler and Caitlin Kittredge (book review).

In theory ‘Black And White’ should be a very good book as it’s written by two accomplished authors, Jackie Kessler and Caitlin Kittredge, and involves comicbook heroes and villains. There’s also the general presentation and format of the book which is novel (no pun intended). Unfortunately, theory once again breaks down in practice. Before describing […]

Showcase Presents Dial H For Hero by Dave Wood (graphic novel review).

Sockamagee! I have a vague memory of fondness for ‘Dial H For Hero’ when I was very young, so I bought this ‘Showcase’ volume to see what it’s like. The fun started in House Of Mystery # 156 (Jan 1966) when boy genius Robby Reed accidentally falls into a cavern and finds a strange dial. […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featurette.

A front and behind-the-scenes look at the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, where DC trail the Justice League’s formation and the whole thing gets kind of connected. DC have obviously been looking at the interconnectedness of the Marvel movies and thinking they want a piece of that big buck cinematic action. Well, […]

Arrow, 4th season trailer.

Here’s the fourth season of Oliver Queen’s mean, lean and green fighting machine take on the DC Comic’s Green Arrow. With the CW’s usual side-dollop of soapy side plots, of course. Starts on the 20th of January in the USA. Hey, that’s today!

Suicide Squad second trailer.

It’s still good to be bad as the most evil bunch of “good guys” in the DC universe try to save the day – while killing people and stealing hand bags. Now, that’s class.

Alter-Ego # 137 (January 2016) (magazine review).

I knew last year that Jim Shooter was going to be interviewed in Alter-Ego # 137 and was part of the reason why I was pushing publisher John Morrow that we really should be reviewing their magazine output. After all, there are a lot of significant names in comicbooks but Shooter still holds the distinction […]
