Who-LogoFanboys, Fangirls, Trekkies, Warsies, Bronys, Cosplayers and Whovians of all ages, lend me your Adventure Time ears (because I lost mine in the snow). As an opinion columnist and critic (AND a journalist from time to time) it is easy to lose sight of what the entire picture of our culture looks like due to being captured in the moment by some compelling crossover, artist change or costume alteration (look who is talking, believe me I get it). So I, your never humble enough columnist, thought I would take some time to explore the big picture something I rarely do in specific articles. It is a thrilling time to love comics and comic culture.   Read more...

  bleediesThat’s right, Bleeder Nation, it’s that time again! It’s that special event that we all wait with baited breath where I, your jolly Bleeder King rounds the year up for comic book fans by giving out completely fabricated awards to the best comics, movies, games, writers and artists and whoever else I want! It’s the third annual Bleedies, and there was so many wacky events in comics and comic themed mediums I don’t even know where to begin. There was just so much happening! For most people 2013 will be remembered as the year of Miley Cyrus twerking at the VMAs,“The Pride of Canada”, Rob Ford, the Obamacare saga, that What Does The Fox Say song, and the dreaded two-headed monster only  known as “Kimye”. But for us? The purveyors of geekdom? Well, it was the year of Henry Cavill and his super-chest hair, Villains Month 3D covers, Battfleck and quite a few comics with SEX in the title. Do you know what it’s like to work in a place where it’s totally cool to yell out “HAS ANYONE SEEN THE LATEST SEX?!” Or asking the question, “who is loving Sex Criminals?” Well, I do. And it’s awesome. Read more...

arrow-cwSuperhero Showcase Several weeks into the new TV season and it's quickly become apparent that superhero shows are the new genre to go to for the networks. The networks were searching a few years ago was to go for the multi-arcing, Sci-Fi fantasy successor to Lost. This award winning show spurned a whole new style of storytelling - one that ensured TV audiences would be left hanging week in, week out by shows that guaranteed twists, turns and plenty of cliffhangers! One of the first of these styles of show to emerge was Heroes. The first series was an unparalleled success, as Peter Petrelli strove to get a hold over his powers and fight for the forces of good in a world full of conspiracies and serial killers. It made superhero shows more mainstream than ever but couldn't maintain the concepts it originally aspired to and it was a shame to see it go.   Read more...

LO ford01.JPGWell, it seems the entire WORLD is talking about Toronto’s mayor, Rob Ford and his incredible drug/alcoholic stupor scandal! It’s unbelievable! The late night talk show circuit (and even SNL), just can’t stop mocking the crap out of this guy. And why the hell not!? He's like a walking Chris Farley movie. The jokes write themselves with this guy. As a Canadian, this has been a bit embarrassing. We’ve never had anyone this ridiculous in such a high position. And no, Justin Bieber doesn’t count...he’s actually not this bad, and not even an elected official...yet. However, as a Montré is FREAKING HILARIOUS! It’s not like Montréal hasn’t been through mayor woes as of late itself...but we didn’t have a raging, foul-mouthed, confessed substance abuser as mayor! So, this is a prime chance for us to point and laugh at our sports rivals. And we’ll do it. We are doing it. Read more...

The show I’m most looking forward to returning this year is – and I have no doubt you were expecting this – Doctor Who. The 50th anniversary special looms ever closer and is set to blow our minds with the new twists it looks set to lay out that will change everything we thought of the Doctor forever! Read more...

Tele-Bug Times As the football season kicks-off, or ends, or merely continues to pick up the pace (depending on which part of the world you live in), the time of year has arrived again for something else to start on TV – Fall TV season has begun and in 2013 it’s a doozy! second-season-of-arrow-to-feature-two-villains I regularly sit and talk to my friends about how now is a great time to be a science fiction, fantasy or horror fan. OK, while we still seem to be snubbed by the Academy (rarely do genre movies pick up any awards) this has not stemmed the out put by the networks. While summer blockbusters at the Silver Screen notably often include giant robots smashing the crap out of each other, starships battling alien adversaries, comic book heroes clashing or ghosts and goblins making a nuisance of themselves, the smaller screen has ALWAYS been the place for us geeks and nerds to really find our home. The rise  of genre TV has definitely been influenced by the cinema as countless superhero shows are commissioned while others look to classic movies to reboot popular characters and look deeper into the events that defined them.

Gotham Comes to FOX oldmanLast night Marvel launched Agents of SHIELD (we will have a review today from our own Jess Kirby), and no sooner was it over than we heard that  DC is making another DC related show with Commissioner Gordon getting the nod. The networks had a bidding war to air the Warner Bros. TV-produced series, called Gotham and it ended up at FOX. This series is a BIG thing and will be getting the straight to series route instead of the usual pilot formula. Read more...

Screen-Shot-2013-06-01-at-3.35.21-PMMore and more creative filmmakers are creating fan films that make definitive versions of  our favorite characters. I don't know if that applies to Grayson: Earth One, a new web-series based on Batman's first sidekick, grown-up and striking out as a rock musician at night and a bad-ass vigilante...later at night. What sets Grayson apart from other fan films is that it takes place in an Elseworlds reality, which resembles more of a realistic take on young Richard, in a  similar vein as CW's Arrow! This proves that the term "fan film" has no definition! It is whatever we want it to be! Read more...
