Gotham City's most prestigious prep school is a very weird place. It's got a spooky campus, oddball teachers, and rich benefactors always dropping by...like that weirdo Bruce Wayne. But nothing is as strange as the students! Like, what's up with Olive Silverlock? Is she crazy or what? Where did she go last summer? And what's … Continue reading Gotham Academy Vol. 1
Welcome to Burnside! Burnside is Gotham's coolest new neighborhood with trendy spots, yogilates, and boutique coffee. Sounds a lot like some of my favorite neighborhoods in Chicago touting street art and an eclectic mix of shops. But while Hyde Park and Wicker Park are home to many a cool hipster, none of them are BATGIRL! … Continue reading Batgirl Vol. 1: Batgirl of Burnside
I love Vera (Alabama), she is adorable and tougher than the Iron Curtain at the same time. The art this issue continues to be amazing. Vera fails and then succeeds with cooking eggs for Lew, all while getting in some core work. I can do that... ****Very slight spoiler, beware...**** She kicks ass and has … Continue reading Red One #2

I was most excited about The Question #1 coming up in the Convergence stew of the DC Universe. Issue #1 was solid and we see Renee Montoya looking comfortingly familiar and without the "Mark of Cain" on her forehead. Good deal. Greg Rucka did an interview with the good folks of comicbook.com. One question (lol, smh) … Continue reading Convergence: The Question #1

This is a Marvel NOW! title and Ms. Marvel is now Kamala Khan, a teenage girl who is also Pakistani-American. Kamala is the first Muslim character to headline her own comic at Marvel.

This is a title with the action/drama mix I was looking for. It's also the second war based comic I've read lately.
As a #WonderWoman fan I avoided this title. When I went to pick up comics in the DC section at FirstAid Comics, I tried to avoid looking in the area I knew it was in. I assumed it would at best disappoint me and at worse, upset me like Batwoman after issue #24. One of … Continue reading POWER COUPLE
Even the most devout Wonder Woman fanatics probably didn’t know that the heroine’s creator, William Moulton Marston, a psychologist, lived with and had children with two women at the same time. They also probably didn’t know that he had slightly strange theories about the benefits of bondage. Nor is it common knowledge that the character, which debuted in 1942, was inspired by the leaders of the suffragist movement.

Israeli actress Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman in 2016’s Batman vs. Superman and will get her own solo film in 2017.
Here’s just some of what Lepore uncovered:

Volume 1, Times Squared, collects issues 1-5 and it is one impressive and promising start. I don't think I have ever smiled so … Continue reading Rocket Girl vol. 1
This is a re-print from Image Comics and one of the first things you will notice about this graphic novel is that the art is done by Charlie Adlard (@CharlieAdlard) , artist of The Walking Dead, and that the technique of the art is a high-end style charcoal/chalk on grey paper. Adlard's art "style" is … Continue reading WHITE DEATH
