Halloween = Big-Time Cosplay!

It’s October and Halloween is upon us. The gang at BeatDownBoogie, as always, does not disappoint with their footage from DragonCon 2014. 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 […]

We Miss You, Bruce Timm

In honor of the 75th anniversary of Bruce Wayne donning Batman’s cowl, Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Bruce Timm made a short Batman cartoon, done in the 1930s style. Man, but I miss Timm’s work on television (Justice League and Justice League: Unlimited are high-water marks in the field). Come back, Bruce Timm! Come back! […]

Holy Fraggaroley! Calamity!

Some bastich over at DC thought it would be cute if they started messin’ with the MAIN MAN from their own funnybooks.  While still reeling from the bizzaro-casting of Ben Affleck as … Batman, a smaller but still bug-nuts crazy reveal popped up on the electric internets today. DC is re-introducing fan favorite character Lobo […]

Dave’s Soapbox: Batman, Guns and Society (and not a lot of Batman)

In our next podcast (coming out tomorrow), we bring in friend of the show Kevin Gibson to talk about the latest Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises.” We never really talked about bringing up the shootings in Colorado because, frankly, we’re not really equipped to do the heavy lifting that that topic really demands in […]

‘Dark Knight Rises’ is a fitting finale

Boiling over with layers of social commentary, “The Dark Knight Rises” takes comic book lore to places it’s rarely been, and delivers the goods with an emotionally exhausting, but ultimately satisfying, conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. In the nearly three-hour conclusion, we find a Gotham that has returned to a state of perceived peace […]

Attention Bat-Nerds: Create Your Own Tumbler!

It’s a truism that the 1966 George Barris-designed Batmobile is the coolest Bat-transportation (or any transportation, now that I think about it) ever, the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Bat-universe is also cool. It’s part Batmobile, part tank, and 100 percent bad-ass. Well, guess what? Thanks to Warner Bros. and its relentless promotion of the forthcoming […]

‘The Avengers’ vs. ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

There are annoying opinions and lots of media hubbub popping up everywhere following the over-the-top success of “The Avengers” after its opening weekend – the film, which is the culmination of Marvel Comics-based films featuring The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, grossed more than $200 million, the highest ever for an opening […]
