In His Defense: Cyclops

Oh, Scott. Scott, Scott, Scott, Scott, Scott. You’re not gonna make this easy, are you? I’ve always been on your side. I’ve always defended you in the face of those who seem to think that Wolverine is the end all be all of the X-Men. I’ve always said you’re far more complex than people give you [...]

Holy Versatility Batman!: Batman in Comics

In honor of the upcoming release of The Dark Knight Rises, the final movie in the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, I’ve decided to dedicate this week to a series of articles honoring the versatility of everyone’s favorite billionaire crime fighter, Batman. Unless you’re more of a Marvel person, [...]

Clio’s Stash: Recommended History Comics

I guess I’m on a history kick this week. While I may have lamented and celebrated different aspects of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, make no mistake, there are some wonderful comics and graphic novels depicting historical figures and settings that are just as off-kilter in premise. Here are some [...]

Where’s Wally?: A Fangirl’s Search for The Missing Flash

In light of the news that, yes, The Justice League movie is a go and that Wonder Woman and The Flash are having scripts written for their own movies, as well as the new Character Art segment started last week, I feel the need to address my thoughts on the disappearance of one of my favorite [...]

Batman Unmasked

I’ve kept quiet (mostly) about my feelings towards DC Comics’s current relaunch mainly because I feel it’s a bit unfair to judge the company when it’s really the product that should be the subject of my critical eye. That being said, DC hasn’t exactly endeared themselves to me what with the [...]

In His Defense: Superman

Amongst my friends, family, and strangers who happen to hear me ranting on the street like a mad woman, it’s common knowledge that there’s no love lost between me and Superman. It’s not like I hate the guy or anything, but there’s never been enough of a draw to the character that’s inspired me to [...]
