If you’re into digital comics and you’re on a budget, I’ve got two great pieces of news for you. The first is that comixology is doing a Summer Reading List giveaway. Each day, they’re giving away a different comic, completely free. Each free deal is
It’s the middle of May, which means that the TV schedules for fall have been released. There are seven – count them, SEVEN – live action comics-inspired television shows set to air on cable networks this fall, and I, for one, couldn’t be more excited.
I’m going to say this flat out: You should be reading Lumberjanes. I know that everyone’s got things they like to read and things that they don’t. Some people really love superhero comics; others are into the horror genre. Most people aren’t going to look
Are you ready to talk about Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Let me tell you, I’m so ready to talk about Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As you’ve probably guessed: massive spoilers ahead. I’m going to be talking a lot about the movie and the

My family celebrates Christmas, so for the last couple of weeks, we’ve been big into the holiday shopping mindset. Items on Christmas wish lists range from small to large, from new socks (thanks for being easy to shop for, Grandma) to new Xbox One games
It’s been a while since the last one, so I figured this week I’d do another comics time capsule. This time, I’m going to look back to the mid-80s with volume 2 of The New Teen Titans – specifically, the Brother Blood story told primarily
I’ll be honest: I went into Damian: Son of Batman with more than a little trepidation. There are a few reasons for this. The first – and most obvious – is that Damian is no longer with us, and since he was killed off in
