Logan Vs Deadpool: Two Vastly Different R Rated Comic Book Movies

The last 18 months has seen two mainstream comic book movies released in theaters with an R rating: Deadpool in February of 2016, and Logan in March of 2017. Although Batman Vs Superman has an R rated cut, it wasn't released that way originally (though it probably should have been) so I'm not going to include that in this post, instead …

Stuck In Time: Why Do Some Heroes Age Better Than Others?

Have you ever wondered why a character like Batman who originated back in the late 30's can work in any time period from his origination in the late 30's to the modern, far more technologically advanced time period we live in now, when the characters that inspired his creation struggle to find a solid footing …

Has Marvel Lost The Magic?

I'm having a bit of a reflective week this week, in part because I turned another year older recently, but  it's almost twenty years to the day since I brought my first Wolverine comic as a young and impressionable preteen. Because of that I've been reading quite a few older Wolverine comics and stories that …

Channeling My Inner Green Arrow

The other day I decided to channel my inner Green Arrow, and decided to take a friend up on his offer of heading to archery tag with him. What is archery tag? Think a cross between paintball and dodge ball, but using a bow and arrow instead. Like in paintball, the only protection you absolutely …

Yes, This Is A Cake

I came across this a few days ago at a culinary school. It's probably a chocolate base and cover, and four mini turtle head cakes sandwiched between, but I didn't want to touch it to be sure in case my clumsy fingers damaged the art. Unfortunately I don't seem to have a picture of who …

It’s Been Fun, Internet, It’s Been Fun.

I'm sure you've not missed the fact that the Holidays are nearly here, or happening, depending on which one you celebrate, and as such I'm going to do something I haven't done since starting this wee blog nearly two years ago: stop writing about comics. You may have noticed I haven't updated as much over the …

Don’t Think Women Belong In Comics? Go Screw Yourself.

Sometimes I'm ashamed to be a comics fan. Not because comics are for kids and I shouldn't be reading them (said with tongue firmly in cheek), but because of the view that some people hold that comics are only for straight white men. It's a view that I vehemently disagree with, but not everyone feels the same …

Have You Ever Struck It Lucky At A Flea Market?

The places that people get rid of their junk unwanted possessions, ideally for a price, whether it be at a flea market or a yard sale, or the car boot sale (which is essentially a combination of a flea market and a yard sale). Of course if you can't shift your stuff at either of those …

Here We Go Again: The Crow Reboot

It was recently announced that the newest iteration of The Crow movie franchise will begin filming next year, after several starts and stops with the production process (funding was an issue, apparently) with Jason Momoa playing Eric Draven, the same role that was played by the late Brandon Lee in the original 1994 adaptation of James …
