Comic Adaptation: Superhero TV Edition

There’s a new trend that has been sweeping network cable recently. Comics. Well, comic book adaptation to be exact. Now don’t get me wrong, there have been comic book adaptations on TV for years so the concept is nothing new. In fact, we tend to have a somewhat steady stream of one or two adaptations…

Runaways

Marvel’s Runaways Should Be TV Show

Yesterday there was an article on ScreenRant about the Runaways movie that never came to be. Which got me thinking again on a topic I’ve thought about a few times before. Despite the original writer’s claims that Runaways could only be done as a movie, I don’t believe it’s true. In fact, I think that…

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, we saw the first full trailer of Marvel’s upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. For most people outside of the realm of comics, and even many who are active comic readers, the Guardians of the Galaxy is new. A fresh IP is exciting, but with a talking raccoon and…

The Comic Book Audience

There have been claims that comics are no longer for children but for adults. Comics are no longer even targeted at children, nut more at an older crowd to consume. To some people this is blasphemous. To some people it makes sense. Yet, to some people the idea of reading a comic is juvenile. Which…

Days of Future Past

Days of Future Past Empire Covers

I really enjoyed First Class. I thought that it took a look at the great X-Men serious and brought some interest and reality back to the series. I believe most people believe it went absolutely off the rails in X-Men Last Stand. With Bryan Singer back at the helm it is exciting to see what…

Ant-Man Casting News and Rumors

Paul Rudd may be playing Ant-Man in Edgar Wright’s upcoming Ant-Man film, but so will Michael Douglas. You heard right.

Marvel Unlimited

I recently purchased a one month subscription to Marvel Unlimited to try it out. I had been taking out comics from the library, but within a month I had pretty much plowed through a large chunk of their collection or the comics were missing large chunks and storylines or were only the beginning of series.…

When most people think of comics, their ideas often drift to something juvenile. If by chance the person coming across the thought of comics doesn’t believe that comics are designed only for children, they often view the themes as trite. Anyone who really reads comics and delves into the world they provide, knows differently. The…

DC Cinematic Universe: Haphazard or Under Control?

Each franchise stands on it’s own while feeding into the larger Marvel Cosmos as the characters interact and form one giant Marvel interconnectivity. Every time…

About Marvel Cinematic Universe

Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor. All of them were only phase one leading up to the glory that was The Avengers. Each movie worked to create an individual franchise that was then able to merge together to form yet another franchise. The phase one movies of…

About Comic Books

(… and Graphic Novels) I love comic books. I always have and I probably always will. They are short and too the point, yet fantastic enough to keep me thoroughly entertained. Sure, the wordings that appear inside may be cheesy at times. ‘Bam’ never ceases to make me laugh. But more times than not, the…
