Secret Empire Teaser

Secret Empire United We Stand Trailer

It's been building for some time now. Amidst the controversy that was the reveal of Steve Rogers (Captain America) being an agent of Hydra, the story began. Secret Empire is a story told across several Marvel titles but culminating in this new series. Here's a teaser trailer for the series along with some comments from writer Nick Spencer:

Revival Teaser!

Revival Teaser and Announcement!

While attending C2E2 this past weekend I was fortunate to run into so many great creative minds. One such mind was Tim Seeley. He created the book Hack/Slash, and more recently he's been writing for DC Comics with the Nightwing series. He also co-created a book with Battlepug creator Mike Norton titled Revival. He was doing a lot of artwork while at the con so he didn't have much time to talk to us in an interview (however, stay tuned to future episodes of the podcast). But he passed along a card that gave the details of an exclusive surprise Post-Mortem Panel on Sunday in which he debuted the following footage:

What Wally Means To Me

What the Return of Wally West Means to Me

I have no idea at what point in my life I was introduced to The Flash. I don’t how old I was, if it was from a comic, a show, a conversation or even which Flash I knew about first. Best guess, it was a passing glance of the ‘90s TV show on CBS starring John Wesley Shipp. And whatever it was, however I found out about him, the character consumed me. Suddenly I ate, slept, breathed and farted The Flash and super speed. I would argue to death that there’s no way a lame-o hero like Superman could beat The Flash in a race…The Flash’s whole power set is speed! I don’t think I picked up a comic until I was in my late teens but when I did, I started with The Flash. And the only Flash I had ever known was Wally West.

Geekly Book Review V4

The Geekly Book Review - Vol 4: Outcast

For a gal with not a lot of spare time, I still manage to read a fair amount. I am known to always have a printed book, audiobook, comic book or magazine rolling at all times (usually more than just one). So I want to share with you the stuff I am currently absorbed in. Some will be new releases, other will be ones I am finally getting too. I hope you enjoy, and in turn hook me up with some fresh suggestions that I can tackle next week.

Batgirl #41

Judging A Book By It's Cover

We live in a world where we must be very careful of what we say and who we say it towards. We have to be ever careful of offending every single person who may read our work, see our images, or watch our films. We must be sensitive to everything and everyone. So I’m not surprised to hear that the cover of a comic book has struck a nerve with so many people. The upcoming variant cover to Batgirl issue forty-one shows an image many Batfans will recognize. It’s a callback to the extremely seminal and important book The Killing Joke. It’s in this book that The Joker shoots and paralyzes Barbara Gordon in front of her father, Commission James Gordon. For a very long time after this incident Barbara was confined to a wheelchair and operated as a hero under the name Oracle.

Ongoing: Thor #1

Ongoing: Thor #1

A few months ago it was announced that Marvel would be replacing the Thor we've known for so long, with a new version...a new female version. This news caused waves in the fanboy comic loving world. We've seen changes to our favorite comic book characters before (see my story about the new Wally West). This change seemed to have come from nowhere, but it wasn't alone. We also found out that we'd be seeing a new Captain America soon in the form of Falcon taking over for Steve Rogers. Well, the time for change has come as Thor #1 has hit shelves this week.

More Marvel Changes

Marvel Makes More BIG Changes

Earlier this week Marvel announced that Thor would be changed into a female character with a new series this Fall. Marvel wasn't done. Last night it was announced that Steve Rogers would be passing on the shield, but not to the Winter Soldier. Taking over for Rogers as Captain America will be Sam Wilson aka The Falcon.

Ongoing: Grayson #1

Ongoing: Grayson #1

From a very early age, I was fascinated with the Robin character in the Batman universe. Not just with the comics, but with the '66 television series, the animated series, and continuing on into Teen Titans and Nightwing. He eventually would break away from Batman to be his own hero. He recognized that he would forever be in Bruce's shadow so he left Gotham and became a vision of hope for a new city that needed a savior.

Women in Comics

Characterization of Women in Comics

The topic came up a few weeks ago on Twitter with a few people. Its an ongoing concern for ladies that are fans of comic books, and just women in general. The question is are women being exploited with their characterizations in comic books. Think for a moment about the women you see in the pages of your favorite books. How do they look? How are they dressed? How realistic do they appear? Should they appear realistic?

Ongoing: Forever Evil #7

Welcome to the first edition of Ongoing. Ongoing will be my comic book review article that I'll post every week, hopefully twice a week in which I'll pick up a book (new or old) and review it to the best of my ability. I'll also take suggestions from you guys as to what I should be reading and reviewing. And this week I read the conclusion to Geoff Johns Forever Evil storyline. Be warned, there will be spoilers in this review.

The New Wally West

Changes to Our Heroes: The Wally West Effect

A few years ago DC decided to reboot all of their titles. It was a bold move and it did increase sales. It also increased my interest in a lot of books. Along the way they made some big changes, and continue to make changes to this day. They're taking the past and making it new again. Some of us seem to take offense to this. It's a lot like when a movie studio remakes a classic film. The internet is all a flutter with rage and hate when a reboot or remake hits the theaters and besmirches your favorite film's good name. But does it really hurt the classic film?
