It is harder and harder to name every character I see, especially with all of the variations and mash-ups. Watch for what I can only describe as “Hawaiian Vacation Cobra Commander.” Below are […]

Russia just doesn’t get superheros.

A quick article shows us that vandals/artists par excellence have been painting Russian monuments to resemble superhero characters… *insert musical sting here*… AMERICAN superheros! Not having a sense of humor, Russian authorities want this to stop immediately because they share the same lack of enthusiasm for costume-clad heroes with our own Repeater.

They Actually “Get” Comic Books!

Well, at least one of them did (and the other was a great sport). I was invited, and happily accepted, to be on our British sister-podcast Nerdology last weekend, and had a great ol’ time talking about comic books in general, and Marvel comics in particular with Simon Brett and Mark Cockram.
