    I'm so fortunate to live in a country where we have leaders that talk to the media everyday and give clear answers, without talking about their poll ratings or the latest wonder drug they want to...

    I don't know about you, but isn't there something...

    I don't know about you, but isn't there something so fascinating about finding a whole bunch of comics and characters that you knew nothing about and then getting new stories about those characters...

    Well, March 13th was Friday the 13th. I've found that a lot of bad things happened in my life on Friday the 13th, so I make it a practice not to go out or contact people on any Friday the 13th. I...

    I had always been into comics, ever since I can remember (mostly Harvey, Dell and Archie). But usually these comics were coverless copies that were in our house or at other people's houses. The first...

    Great, so you'll swing by my place and take me to the drive-in whenever I want to see a movie? Because I don't have a car.

    I think drive-ins are the wrong way to go. We're trying to get away from...

    I think there's a middle ground. I admit to being too uptight with my siblings, but other friends in Canada are not so much. However, I think parents that overshare with their children and children...

    Poll: I think in John Byrne's mind Krypton was a...

    I think in John Byrne's mind Krypton was a metaphor for Canada-Great Britain. It's cold and frozen like the province of Alberta, where he grew up, which is encased in ice ten months out of the year....

    I give it a listen the first time I play the whole album (but it's background noise while I find other things to do), but when I go back to hear the album again, I always skip it. The thing that's...

    I'm happy to put my Canadian Studies degree to work.

    In Canada, you can hold two or more passports and still be a citizen--you can be French and Canadian both. Your other country might not like...

    With one big exception, I get a lot more joy from the White Album than Sgt. Pepper's. Listening to each album (as I've been doing), I realized this. Sgt. Pepper's is interesting with all its...

    I'm really disappointed in Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Okay, they grew up thinking every white man can be president, but once they were over 70 they should have accepted it wouldn't be prudent to...

    Y'know, most origins give the hero some tragic reason why he has to go into action as a super-hero, but Barry's original origin gave him the perfect reason that makes sense to every comic book...

    I'm watching CORONATION STREET and they are all on the street not keeping two metres apart, not hand washing, not discussing the virus. I know it was filmed more than a month ago, but it's supposed...

    I'm assuming it's pre-Crisis and there's an Earth-Two, Earth-One and Earth-Prime. The comics on Earth-One had to be different from ours, but they had stories about the Earth-Two heroes. What...

    Yes, the cover of Barry's FLASH COMICS No.13 doesn't look like any cover I can find on Earth-Prime, which suggests Earth-One had variant covers. His copy of ALL-STAR COMICS No. 37 (October-November...

    Well sure, for the debut of the Hurricane (created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby)--Marvel's second speedster. The better known Marvel speedster, the Whizzer (created by Al Avison) didn't make his...

    Allen Garfield has died from COVID-19. A great character actor--you might not know the name, but you'd know the face, because he was in so many things.

    President Dumpf did get one thing right. As a rule corona viruses don't do well in the summer months. It's not that it's hot exactly, but the increased ultra-violet destroys the molecular bonds of...

    Surely it's just embarrassing to watch explicit stuff with your parents or your siblings. I always assumed my parents disapproved, I didn't know for certain. But I felt terrible when those scenes...

    If we assume that Barry only collected the All-American line (Max Gaines books) and not the Detective Comics line (Harry Donenfeld books)--then the most valuable issue among those is ALL-AMERICAN...

    Jean Smart is an interesting case. Because when she was on DESIGNING WOMEN, I thought hers was the most boring character on that show and I really didn't think she was much of an actress. I guess I...

    I wanted to post about this before, but I realized that I had to rewatch WONDER WOMAN, yet again, to be sure of my facts. I wanted to look at the left to right and right to left movement of the...

    The Cineplex closest to me is in a complex that was only completed about seven years ago. It was built on what was industrial land down by the river. One time, I think I was at AQUAMAN, I was walking...
