Welcome Back, Smallville!?

By now, if you're a Smallville fan, you've probably heard through the grapevine or www.bleedingcool.com that Bryan Q. Miller was tapped for writing season eleven of Smallville in novel format. I seriously feel like I was the last to know about this, but that aside, if it turns out to be true, it would be a very good thing for fans of the show. At the end of the story, we are left with the idea that, "OK. Clark goes on to be Superman." and that sends us right into the comic books or movies. For a lot of hardcore fans, that just never jived. Smallville made a different world for us. Instead of trying to make it blend together, in the end it would have been better for it to go in it's own direction. I still love where it ended, and I am glad he finally donned the tights. That doesn't mean when I read the comics now that I consider these to be his adventures after Smallville. So we are left with an assumption. … Continue Reading ››

We're half way into the second month of DC's New 52, and although retailers are reporting a slight drop in sales, the figures are still higher then last years reported sales.

DC Solicitations for December 2011!

With the initial run of DC's new 52 wrapping up, many questions about this new universe that have yet to be answered. The fates of many popular characters are still up in the air, not only in regards to their existence, but their origin! One example would be Karen Starr, or as she is more commonly referred to, Power Girl. With lasts weeks release of Mister Terrific, we did get a whiff of this universes version of Karen Starr; but whether or not she is even a superhero, let alone Kara Zor-L from Earth 2, has yet to be answered. Luckily, for us, DC has just released solicits for the month of December, and some of these questions are being answered, not a lot however. More changes are coming, this time in the teams behind DC's new titles. Some of these changes are great, and actually breathed life into titles I thought were lack luster, or too different from their previous incarnations. For instance, December’s issue of Green Arrow will feature a story by writer Keith Giffen! I'm so excited for this, as I felt J.T. Krull's first issue on the … Continue Reading ››

Although they've sold like crazy, with several titles recieving not only a second, but third and fourth printing, it's issues 2-3 that will REALLY say whether or not this reboot was a success.
