We are fast approaching the climax of the 2015-2016 seasons of the DC Television Universe with only a few episodes of Gotham, Arrow, Lucifer, The Flash, iZombie, Legends of Tomorrow and only one left of the new smash Supergirl. While everyone in fandom has favorite characters from DC Comics, each wing of the DCTVU has a unique feel and a distinct voice. Since being your weekly episodic guide through three shows this season (Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash) I thought it would be fun to try once again to play armchair executive and make some perfect fits for each.

When they write the history books on cartoons, Warner Bros will have its own wing. And it will be the first wing built. From the debut of Bugs Bunny (at least, I could contend further back) to their last direct to video release Justice League Vs Teen Titans the astonishing grip on what can be done with the medium is constantly being used to get the most complete and relevant effect possible. No matter your feelings on DC’s comics or movies it is clear they are the only game in town when it comes to the conversation on best animation. Read more...

marvels1What is sequential art? Whenever I use that term..which is the actual technical term for comic books, people rarely know what it means. People usually think it’s “Crazy Dave, speaking gibberish again.” But no, it’s an actual thing. It’s the art of telling stories with pictures. Drawings, paintings, stick-men...it doesn’t matter, if you can make a story with a sequence of pictures, you are creating a comic book. Sequential art is what comics essentially is. Read more...

d9Welcome, eXPress Legions to the counterpart to my 5 Disney Properties That Need To Be Movies column, Marvel of course included. Tit for tat, both sides of the coin I always try to be as fair as I can so it seems natural we do this one too. Time Warner, the parent company for Warner Brothers and DC Comics haves so many rights in so many fields to so many different properties there was the fortune of many to choose from -  however there is SO many that it also made it incredibly difficult. After watching an advance copy of Son of Batman I decided I couldn’t review it spoiler free so I went to work on the properties list. So let’s get this monkey smoking… So when I compiled this list I tried to stick to a few things that would ensure the success of these properties as films, how they would most likely be adapted, whether a large audience would be viable I also wanted to not focus too heavily in one area, dividing it up among the different licenses genres and styles. Feel free to disagree with me on the Facebook page or Twitter. I am also going on record right here to say I want a Space Jam sequel. Read more...

damm1Without a doubt Steve Ditko is my favorite comic artist of all time. His beautiful work displaying bold emotional tones and his characters made of heart and virtue have been fixtures of my pull list decade after decade. Throughout the years from Romita’s Spider-Man to Liefeld’s Hawk and Dove there have been few arcs worthy of Ditko himself. Yet characters Blue Beetle, Question, Creeper and Doctor Strange have endured primarily in hopes of rediscovering the spark that put them on top. While Ditko himself is not doing mainstream comics (duh) his legacy is felt every single time someone thwips their hands in a Spidey formation. (Admit it you just made the two fingers to palm motion) Throughout these variations and story arcs I mentioned no character has been harder to nail down than the Question. The faceless Vic Sage fully convinced that there is a shadow cabinet behind every door, the standard crime fighting reporter, the conspiracy theory buff obsessed with showing all things are connected – these have all been feature points of The Question’s hit and miss past. To me all criteria for a good Question story are found in Ditko’s creation of him and subsequent run. But I read them all. So when I saw Peacemaker in the trade paperback super sale right here on eXpertComics.com I thought to myself, “Self, for this price I can take a chance and reread this.” I ordered it and read it. Says here you guys are due a review. So let’s get this monkey smoking…   Read more...

Mighty_Avengers_Infinity_Earth-616_001What makes a great superhero team? There can be many factors that come into play. Great characters with personalities that mesh together in various situations is a start. Not to say that all characters on the team have to like each other (some conflict is good), but when the chips are down they have to get it together to take down the bad guys and save the city, world or universe. The costumes don’t have to match, they don’t all have to be the same type of hero, but the one thing they have to be is a unit. Everyone knows The Avengers, X-Men and The Justice League...but there are many superhero teams that came along that I personally loved to read about. What can I say? I’m just a fan of teamwork! Oh yeah, this is a list, people! And this time it’s underrated superhero teams!   Read more...

young-jj-young-justice-31567443-800-600A lot of fans of the show Young Justice were left perplexed by the 5 year storyline jump between seasons 2 & 3. Well, their questions will be answered later this year with Young Justice Legacy, an Action RPG being developed by Little Orbit based on the (now cancelled) cult TV series. You will be able to create your own teams out of a roster of 12 characters, including Aqualad, Nightwing, Kid Flash, Miss Martian and Superboy, and battle against a slew of DC villains led by Lex Luthor.  Read more...

im-feelin-the-vibe¡Hola! It is Cinco de Mayo, a day that is celebrated primarily in the United States and Mexico in honor of  El Día de la Batalla de Puebla, an influential battle during the American Civil War. Over the years though, the day is celebrated all over the world as a way to indulge in Mexican and Latin Food, drink and music...it’s a great reason to let the good times roll and usher in the Summer! In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I’d like to count down my five (CINCO!) characters with Latin descent that have made the most influential impact on comic book culture. Read more...
