Our own Amy Ratcliffe reviews the new graphic novel Tale of Sand over at her own site, Geek With Curves. An adaptation of a lost screenplay by MUPPETS creator Jim Henson and longtime MUPPETS writer Jerry Juhl, Tale of Sand, says Amy, “is ambitious, surreal, and glorious.” I’m sold.

Over at Comic Book Resources, writer Timothy Callahan has just posted an exhaustive history of one of the more head-scratchingest periods in super-hero history, the time when Matt Murdock was pretending to be his own fictional twin brother Mike. As Timothy writes, “Right! Because that’s clearly the best way to handle this situation. Concoct a […]
The recent induction of Daredevil to the Avengers has got me thinking: when I first started reading comics, there was always a sort of conventional wisdom that there were certain Marvel characters that absolutely, hands down, no-questions would never been in the Avengers. For the longest time, that “common-knowledge” list was kind of set in […]
Compared to media juggernauts like Spider-Man or the Hulk, ol’ Hornhead hasn’t made that big of a pop-culture splash yet. There was a fairly awful TV-movie back in the ’80s that teamed up the Hulk and Daredevil. Entitled TRIAL OF THE INCREDIBLE HULK (in which the Hulk is never put on trial, by the way; […]

For my father, nostalgia is a dog-eared copy of CAPTAIN MARVEL ADVENTURES that passed through his hands only briefly, reading it once, then selling it at an apple-crate stand outside his own father’s restaurant, to young servicemen sailing off to fight the […]
With Mark Waid’s relaunch of DAREDEVIL currently reaping all kinds of well-deserved critical acclaim, it seems like a perfect time to look back at where it all began for Marvel’s Man Without Fear, and take a quick look at how things have changed over the years. Daredevil first appeared in April 1964 in the pages […]
Greetings, culture lovers. As I write this, I’m smack in the middle of what seems like the first real vacation for your humble professor in years and years. However, because I’m too neurotic to break “The Streak” (every Wednesday since 2003, don’t you know), I’m putting aside the figgy pudding and leftover turkey sandwiches for […]
