LOVE this modern take on DC's Trinity! Also, where can I buy that Wondy jacket?

NRRD PROBZ – 12.11.2012

Hello, dear readers. Just as a heads up this is going to be the last NRRD PROBZ of 2012. It will return on January 8th, so have a wonderful holiday and send in those questions! "Gail Simone got sacked! If I wanted to start reading some Gail Simone books, where do I start?" I KNOW... Continue Reading →

Poll: Too Much Batman?

"Another Batman book?" — an annoyed Facebook friend I love Batman. He’s a fascinating hero who is ripe for psychoanalysis and, thanks to many talented creative teams and the loving care of his corporate keepers, has had some of the best stories in comics history. I'm also a Grant Morrison fan, so I've already added... Continue Reading →

You Complete Me!

Author's Note: If fan sentimentality of any kind repulses you, please avoid the following essay. The relationship between Batman and Superman has fascinated me since I was a kid.

WTF? Wednesday: Three’s Company

If a picture says a thousand words, the World's Finest covers of yore are entire novels. Faulkner novels. As in, engrossing and deeply troubling.  While this storied title was innocent, action-packed fun for generations of comic book-loving kids, things look very different when viewed from an adult perspective. It's like when you look at H.R.... Continue Reading →
