In this BBC interview the Batman actor Ben Affleck tells the interviewer all about ‘Batman v Superman – Sad Affleck‘, as well as what he learnt from making Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – plus what he was allowed to take home from the movie (aka nick). More than us, Ben. More than us!
Legion Of Super-Heroes: The More Things Change by Paul Levitz, Steve Lightle, Ernie Colôn and Keith Giffin (graphic novel review)
Having looked at all the other softcover reprints of the Legion Of Super-Heroes in the last month, the only one I missed was this one, ‘Legion Of Super-Heroes: The More Things Change’ which was in 1985, when DC Comics decided for some titles to print both newsprint and Baxter paper quality to sell in the […]
Here comes the first trailer for iBoy, a new gritty urban UK-set film from Netflix where a young hoodie witnesses a crime and is badly shot, and in doing so, picks up the ability to interface with electronics, machines and wireless signals. There was a character with this ability in the old Alphas superhero TV series, […]
Season 2 of Supergirl is set to build on its tradition of borrowing outlandish adversaries, with the news that it will feature DC’s most unpronounceable villain, Mr Mxyzptik. Peter Gadiot will play the character, and he adds this tricky assignment to a star-studded list of TV fantasy roles, his most recent being Cyrus in Once […]
By their nature, covers are used to entice you to buy a product. More so with American comicbooks in the 1960s. You might recognise the characters but it often the actions and the activities that are going on that will convince you to read the adventure. With the Golden Age and the resurrection of comicbook […]
‘Legion Of Super-Heroes: The Beginning Of Tomorrow’ is the reprint of the 1994-1995 re-build of the LSH from Legion Of Super-Heroes 0, # 62-65, Legionnaires 0, 19-22. As such there are a large handful of writers, pencillers and inkers with probably the first issue being the sketchiest before the art standard jumps up. This is […]
If you used the opening three pages of ‘The Legion: Foundations’ as the means to gauge the artistic merits of this graphic novel compiled from The Legion # 25-30 and The Legion Secret Files 3030’ from 2003-2004, you would probably put it back on the shelf. According to the back cover and opening credits, apart […]
I picked up this copy of ‘Legion: Secret Origin’ to confirm some research for any article on the Legion Of Super-Heroes that will go on-line end of the month. The material from this graphic novel was taken from Legion: Secret Origin # 1-6 in 2011-12. Unlike the other origins from the other 30th centuries, this […]
The dual cover of Comic Book Creator # 13 shows what is the meat of this issue, namely interviews with artists Ramona Fradon and Michael W. Kaluta, which tends to make light of the other material contained. Not being American, I’m not really that familiar with ‘The Wacky Pack’ stickers and an excerpt from the […]
Spider-Man/Deadpool Vol. 1 – Isn’t It Bromantic? by Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness (graphic novel review).
If you want to get another comicbook title on the shelves to make sure you’re getting even more money, then a tip from me is to do a team-up. Get two characters who are selling their individual titles like gangbusters. Then join them together for a series of wacky adventures. Then sit back and watch […]
