    I got into DC super-heroes in 1966, because of Batman. But once I realized that Batman and Superman were best friends, I started to read just as many Superman comics as Batman comics. However, when...

    Man, you Batman fans are never satisfied. Robin was outfitted with armour to protect his private parts--chainmail green pants, long before Batman himself wore armour--and a bullet-proof vest that...

    The artist that became most associated with Black Cat was Lee Elias who had a Milt Caniff/Noel Sickles type style at the time. And the artist who co-created Black Canary was Carmine Infantino, who...

    Never had the good fortune to find any of the Walmart exclusive comics in a Canadian Walmart or a comic book store, so I wonder if I'll be able to find these within the Dominion's borders. How do...

    Back in wartime, when Canada prohibited trade with the USA for certain items and American comic books weren't supposed to get into the country (although they did), there were several homegrown...

    There were a fair number of comics that I got at the five and ten cent store, in the 1960s and early 1970s (before the owners realized they could sell these comics for an arm and a leg). But when I...

    Of the modern Robins, Damian is probably the one must suited to the original outfit now. Classic Robin the Boy Wonder is like the character Puck--also called Robin Goodfellow--in Shakespeare's THE...

    I started to watch CACHÉ, also called HIDDEN, but after only a few seconds I remembered that I saw it in the theatres when it came out. However, I couldn't remember what was the solution to the...

    I think, for a certain audience, this is that special kind of porn they've been longing for all their lives. :p

    I kind of doubt that they would get anyone else from the movie to appear--although the guy that played the son is probably available (he's been on YOUNG & THE RESTLESS)--and it's mainly because Routh...

    Geoff Johns was born in 1973, so he would have totally missed the 1960s. And even by the time he was old enough to be reading comics (say seven years old), the 1970s was completely over.

    When I read this news this morning, CW'S COIE went from being a highly anticipated TV event to one of the greatest events I've ever anticipated in any medium.

    I really admire Brandon Routh. And...

    In pre-Crisis continuity, the fabric which becomes super under a yellow sun (and can be damaged under a red sun) is elastic--so it can be stretched into long strands (never mind the real life physics...

    It was the success of the Batman comics that killed my interest in them a long time ago. If you wanted to follow all the Bat titles, you had to make that your full time job and spend every penny just...

    There should be something like the Peter Principle for comic books. The Peter Principle--for those that don't know--is when a person is promoted to their level of incompetence. They were perfectly...

    That might be so, but the Berlanti TV shows produced in Vancouver are providing jobs for thousands of people, putting a lot of money into this economy and making it possible for even more film and...

    I might be digging a big hole for myself, but I think Ebony White was a great character. He started out as a bad stereotype but developed into a well-rounded sidekick. In hindsight, I just wish that...

    It's kind of a grey area with the male heroes, where you could say that a mystery man like Doc Savage or the Shadow isn't a super-hero, even though they have super abilities. So where do you draw the...

    I think when McFarlane was his own boss on SPAWN, he could budget time to devote to the product. And I also remember he brought in other creators to handle the workload. Whereas, he probably was...

    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...
