Favorite Black Characters in DC

It’s time for the next installment in my favorite black characters in media. This week, I’m focusing on my favorite DC characters. DC has been around for a long time and in their long history they’ve developed a decent chunk of black characters into their mythology. While I wish a few more of them were…

Favorite Black Characters in Marvel

It’s February. The shortest month of the year. It is also the one month created to bring awareness to Black History. While, I’m not going to go into how sad it is that we need to specify a month to help make people aware. So what I’m going to do is highlight some of my…

Grounded Locations

When I was little I knew of far more DC characters than Marvel. That said, I felt a stronger connection to Marvel than to DC, Sure there were a number of reasons that I thought were the reaso. The most obvious one seemed to be the one that mot people flocked to. That Marvel characters…

Comic Book Movies

Comics are a beautiful thing. So are movies. Each medium is uniquely beautiful with the ability to reach people and touch them in ways that can’t always be seen. Comic Book movies meld the two experiences together. The result is often something that is either successful or a failure. The adaptation becomes even more important…

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy Prelude Review

In an effort to both raise awareness and put out more content prior to the release of Marvel’s most questionable property, Guardians of the Galaxy, a series of prelude comics were published prior to the films release. Each of these comics is directly associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe as these are tie in pieces.…

Adapting Comics to TV

I’ve talked about adaptations previously (and comic adaptations). I’ve even talked about why I think The Runaways would make a far better TV show than a movie, but I feel like I need to go into why I believe that comic adaptations are well suited for TV. Yes, there are certain arcs that can be…

Mjolnir

Female Thor is Good, Not Bad

It seems as though people are incapable of accepting changes when it comes to the comic book world, despite comic interpretations are constantly changing. With every change people almost always become outraged. To them, there is no way that the creators could potentially change their beloved comic character. There was an outrage when it was…

Ouran High School Host Club

Harem Genre

There tends to be a trend of people not liking the one person who is the object of a number of people’s affection. For many people it is a natural aversion. However, in a story this can be done well, but also faces the same challenges as it would in real life. In manga and…

Jean Grey

Omega Class Mutants

I had no intention of talking about Omega Class Mutants today. None, but when the topic keeps coming up in my conversations, I need to work that into my topics for the day. I promise this will be the last of my X-Men related posts. Omega Class mutants are the creme of the crop when…

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Days of Future Past – Comic v TV v Movie

Days of Future Past is an iconic story line that has been used numerous times over the years. While there are similarities between all versions of the story, there are some unique differences. So while we always see that they are in a pretty terrible situation in the future with nearly all the mutants dead…

Who Are Big Hero 6

Most people don’t know that Marvel isn’t just releasing Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, but also the animated movie version of Big Hero 6 which will release into theatres in November. Part of the reason most people don’t know about this movie potentially because it is a smaller movie and…

I’ve Been Reading Comics My Entire Life

When I was in middle school and high school, I read manga non-stop. Well, maybe it wasn’t non-stop but whenever I had the spare money to buy a volume of one of my favorite stories, you could bet on me going to check it out. I built a collection. By the time I graduated high school, I owned over 50 volumes and that’s not including the volumes that I borrowed from friends.

Justice League

What I Love About DC

One day late, but it’s here. Why I love DC comics. Growing up, everyone knows about Superman and Batman. You’d have to live in a hole to avoid exposure to those superheros. DC superheros are iconic, especially as the Justice league. People know and have grwown up with these characters. Nostalgia Even as DC comics…

What I’ve Always Loved About Marvel

I’m a fan of all comics, but I admit my soft spot leans a bit toward Marvel (Don’t worry, tomorrow’s post will be about DC). There are just various aspects of the show that have connected with me and I’m going to go through some of them. Bear with me, the first comic that I…

Comics & Manga

I’ve only been in to comics and manga for the past 10 to 11 years. Even now, I can’t stop reading stories presented in this manner. For one the ability to see the story visually depicted yet still be able to delve into their minds like in novels. It’s fascinating how they can pull you…
