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.

d 1What do you get when you cosmically force three eternal sinners, each seeking redemption together on a path none of them wish at all? Add to this the fact that one of the trio hates the other two and has no memory of why he is attached to them or what he did that got him into this predicament in the first place. The potential for team dynamic skyrockets exponentially. All the while, the forces of an ancient darkness are seeking out (with ill intent, of course) our intrepid heroes in the making. The title is called Trinity of Sin and J.M. DeMatteis and Yvel Guichet have brought Pandora, Phantom Stranger and the Question into the forefront of the DCU like never before, building on the solo series of Phantom Stranger and Pandora which came to an end recently.   Read more...

d 13Welcome ENR Legions. It is my pleasure to be here. Thank you for reading. Thanks to Brett DaSilva who recommended Phantom Stranger to me. It has been clear that over the last four years I have been extremely critical of DC Comics and Warner Brothers especially. I have stated time and again I dislike the way the current “big guns” in their comic and cinematic universes are characterized. However I have always approached with an open mind (OK Man of Steel shut THAT door…but in the comics) and I have shined just as glorious of praise on titles like Batgirl, The Beyond  line of books, Blue Beetle, Superman Unchained, Batman and Superman and Adventures of Superman as warranted. But still it remained that in most cases heroes were not acting like heroes but like spoiled children or jaded murderers. But I read villains month and found as far as the villains go, the New 52 has some of the best. Rebooted or not. I loved it and said so right on these pages. That being said, I love events. I love crossovers and chromium covers, I love big sweeping arcs in multiple titles and most of all I love tie-ins. But I have been burned a lot lately. From AvX to Death in the Family to Children of the Atom the event has sucked a lot recently (although Court of Owls was fun).   Read more...

THAT'S Not a Black Jellybean under that Easter Bunny Hey, Bleederz! I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter weekend...hiding candy from children. I never actually understood that part of the holiday, to be honest. A giant bunny breaks into my home and hides candy around the house? Mostly because to me hiding deliciousness is pure evil. Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey didn’t help with the big scary bunny thing, either. But I digress (which my regular readers will know I do about 400 times in each column), since it’s Easter I would like to this week to talk about 'Easter eggs" in comics. You’d probably noticed that oftentimes an artist will  subtly and sometimes not so subtly put something in the comic that is either an inside joke or a nod to something. I’ve always been a fan of them. And while this has become pretty popular in big budget films lately, comic creators have been sneaking stuff into their artwork for decades. Read more...
