Thus far the Batman book has been one of my favorite DC books. When the Death of the Family story started rolling I was just enthralled with all …

Deadpool – The Webseries Episodes 1 and 2

Posted On: January 24, 2013
Written by: Juan Daeho
Chris R. Notarile has started his fan film Deadpool webseries, which he wrote and directed. Here's what he said about the series. The "Deadpool" series is designed to show life through the eyes of Wade Wilson. He is insane, the world is not. Thus, there is room for a certain amount of wackiness, humor and antics, but clearly everyone around Deadpool is not "in" on his jokes. I wanted to make it very apparent that only Deadpool knows he's a fictional character. And if you were to remove him from the picture, this series would actually be more melodramatic and …

Written by: El Blanco Gigante
All New X-Men #6 Marvel Comics Story: Brian Michael Bendis Art: David Marquez Issue six pretty much covers two sets of interactions. One is Jean Grey trying to control her newly awaken powers, the other is the young Scott Summers trying to come to terms with the monster he's supposed to become. With Jean, Kitty is there to give her support like explaining to her how to shut out the invading thoughts of all the people around her. Paradoxically, the advice Kitty gave Jean was originally told to Kitty by the Jean of Kitty's time. Time travel, it's more convoluted on the inside. …

Posted On: January 8, 2013
Written by: Juan Daeho
Jim Starlin posted two pages from his secret ongoing series from DC Comics on his Facebook fan page. Here’s what he said about the series on his personal FB page.
