    Lily Renée was an artist (and maybe writer) on Senorita Rio. The young artist had escaped from Nazi occupied Austria and eventually made her way to the U.S.A. where she got a job working at Fiction...

    Bob Oksner did the comic strip MISS CAIRO JONES, which inherited the slot left by MISS FURY, which is why they added "Miss" to the strip's title--the strip was reprinted in one comic book from...

    The original Poison Ivy created by Bob Kanigher was bad, yes, but not really bad and seen to be someone who could be redeemed. Her badness was relative. She was appearing in a comic book where the...

    When I'm trying to get into a secure site and it shows me a bunch of images that a robot can't work out but humans easily can, I assume that the robots are trying to learn from this how to do that...

    I remember the Todd McFarlane 1990 SPIDER-MAN, on which he was writer and artist, as not being a very good read. His art was good to look at, but he did a lot of one page and two page spreads, which...

    Both the religious and the secular meaning of "perditon" are about the same--a place of constant punishment, without hope of salvation. The early settlers were God fearing Bible folk and they didn't...

    I live for the day when Keith Giffen decides to do another Ambush Bug comic. You want fourth wall breaking humour that will make your ears bleed and your eyes melt, Ambush Bug was the pure uncut...

    The comics I remember best are the ones that I read as a kid. When you're a kid, you're easily impressed by things you wouldn't notice as an adult and you'll spend hours and hours reading the same...

    EXTREME JOB. The English translations of Korean in the subtitles were terrible. So I had to try to imagine what they were actually saying. Thankfully there's lots of moments where you don't need to...

    I wonder if we need to be using our Roget's Thesaurus and finding a greater variety of adjectives. It always seems like we attach certain adjectives to men and others to women--certain adjectives to...

    In the late 1960s, Sargon the Sorceror showed up in THE FLASH, having now become a villain. But a little after that, in the early 1970s, he helped out in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, in their fight...

    I rarely ever post here about the CW shows anymore, because the CBR threads always seem to go off on these long tangents, where posters put down the shows, and it's hard to get in a good word about...

    Watching Blake Lively in movies like THE SHALLOWS (thrilling), ALL I SEE IS YOU (confusing) and A SIMPLE FAVOR (a mess)--I'm struck by how good she always is, even when the movies that she's in are...

    Not just in the fake comic book world, but if we're talking about the saddest moment in the history of DC the publisher--for me that was ACTION COMICS 583, especially the cover. I've never been so...

    Well, sure, I know that now. But all those years ago when I first read THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE it was a real head-scratcher.

    And I remember all those ads in the 1970s for Mazola Corn Oil, where...

    I prefer the pre-Crisis version of her origin, where she was born after Krypton's destruction and she was born well after Kal-El. However, there were a few complexities about that origin story--which...

    Whether he was in the military or not, I'd prefer Sam was now living in Pittsdale and having a good life with Ella. Military personnel often retire early and then find other things to do.

    I guess it was so long between season 2 and season 3 that I forgot what was so egregious about Billy and only remembered the good stuff. To me he was good at being the typical bad boy from 1980s...

    If you're proposing that the term "bad art" is totally useless--because no two people can agree on what's bad--then I'd agree with that proposition. So let's stop calling it bad art, because such...

    If WONDER WOMAN 1984 was coming out sooner, as it was supposed to, then BIRDS OF PREY would be a non-issue for me. It's only because of WW84's timing that I care, since I don't want to see that movie...

    That "sweetcorn" confuses me, because corn isn't exactly sweet.

    I don't want to spoil a key plot detail, but there's something involving Black Mask that's hard to see how they could make it work. And these things are delicate. You never know how they're going to...
