Top 100 Women of Pop Culture

A while ago we wrote an epic ten part list of our 100 favourite graphic novels. We liked it and the feedback we got was very positive. I though we’d do video games but fortunately we have writers who have great ideas, and we loved Jes’ suggestion that we could look at the 100 greatest … Continue reading

amazon

In case you didn’t know, Amazon Prime has joined the recent wave of websites generating original content. Amazon has a cool way of doing it though. They create some pilots and let their viewers vote on which ones get a full season. This is their third time doing it, and they have 5 new pilots for … Continue reading

10 Comic Moments “Gotham” Could Use Pre-Batman

4GothamCity-610x343

Hush’s childhood Hush is one of Batman’s relatively newer rogues, but he has become pretty prominent despite that. Hush is really Tommy Elliot, Bruce’s childhood friend.

We’ve seen the first episodes of Flash and Constantine and they’re good. Not great, but plenty of potential. We could be on the cusp of a new era in totally watchable TV comic adaptations.

  When it comes to series finales, especially for beloved shows, expectations are fairly high.  After all, if audiences spend years following cherished characters, wading through gripping and complicated plots, and spending countless hours on message boards debating  the show’s finer points, there better be a pay off.  Alas that unfortunately is not always the case.  For … Continue reading

Casting Call: ‘Hannibal’ TV Series

Hannibal

It was revealed during Comic Con this year that Season 3 of “Hannibal” will cover elements of Hannibal and Red Dragon, including Francis Dolarhyde, aka The Tooth Fairy.

Doctor Who Review Vol. 12.1 – ‘Deep Breath’

doctor-who (1)

Here we go again. The first episode of any new incarnation of the Doctor is a delicate prospect for the production team. Whether or not the new actor is suited to the role (and we didn’t doubt for a moment that Calpadi would be anything but perfect) they need to sell us on the new … Continue reading

DC TV Review: ‘The Flash’ and ‘Constantine’

Constantine

Ok, I’m pretty sure DC are doing this on purpose. Two major leaks in the space of a week – the pilot episodes for their upcoming television shows The Flash and Constantine – just before San Diego Comic Con. I suspect that they’re hoping to get some feedback for making adjustments before official release. Nothing wrong with … Continue reading
