Two New Superman Comics Set to Debut From DC Comics

Posted: March 13, 2013 at 9:44 am   /   Comic Books, Local

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a Superman fan through and through.  Action Comics Annual #1 was the first comic I ever bought, and I became a fan immediately. Before the reboot, the Superman books were struggling.  None of them, with the exception of Supergirl & Superboy had real traction with fans.  When the reboot was announced, I […]

We are in a comic book renaissance of sorts. The comics themselves aren’t selling like they were even two decades ago, but they have a loyal following that keeps the industry chugging quietly along.

5 Things We Want in ‘Man of Steel’

Posted: March 4, 2013 at 3:03 pm   /   Comic Books, Coming Soon, Local, Movie News

Superman Returns gets a bad rap. It isn’t nearly as awful as people say it is, but it isn’t anywhere near as good as it could have been. It was hurt by a number of things, but the biggest problem was continuing a series of films from 20 years ago.  It was full of winks […]

The Long Box – Comic Book Casting: The Punisher

Posted: February 9, 2013 at 5:53 pm   /   Comic Books, Film, Local

The Punisher has been in what I like to call “movie jail”.   Despite three feature films, it has never found traction with audiences or critics.  In 1989, the first film starred Dolph Lundgren and went straight to video (never a good sign). The second was released in theaters in 2004 and starred Thomas Jane. […]
