Comics Legend John Byrne Angers Transsexual Activists UPDATED

Wikimedia says this is a drawing of Demon by note hate-monster John Byrne, but really its a picture of his evil soul.

This just in from the Social Justice Warriors: John Byrne is evil. This very stupid year is already, quite obviously, the Year of the Transsexuals, because the rage-fits of a tiny cadre of deeply troubled people must be part of Our National Dialog all day every day. The latest Enemy of the People is Byrne, one [Read More...]

Art by Ed McGuinness, from Wikimedia Commons.

You won’t believe what has the Social Justice Warriors of geekdom riled up this time. DC Comics was tweeting answers to fan questions in a chat about Bizarro, a DC villain who’s Superman’s opposite.

These just dropped today: When Rory from Doctor Who showed up as a Time Master in this trailer, my Whovian daughter said “I have to sit down.” She was verklempt. And I thought this trailer looked like a pretty respectable take on Supergirl. Certainly better than the Helen Slater movie. As I’ve said before, I’m a [Read More...]

Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) holds a baby raccoon. One of our favorite moments in Guardians of the Galaxy was Drax trying to comfort a grieving Rocket by gently petting his head. It was a small moment, both funny and oddly touching at the same time. [Read more...]

You Should Be Watching “Arrow”

I’ve been enjoying the Marvel movie renaissance as much as the next geek, but I’m a DC guy and proud of it. DC has had renaissance of its own that far exceeds Marvel’s, albeit on the small screen.
