Earth’s Mightiest Heroes: Even More Assembling

Previously: In the first two parts of our examination of THE AVENGERS, we explored the origin and roster of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and took a stroll through their decades-long history.

Buried Treasury

Your humble professor is freshly returned from this year’s WonderCon 2018, returned to its rightful home in Anaheim, California, across the street from the House of Mouse. And a great show it was, feeling much like what was to me the heyday of the San Diego Comic-Con, the late 1990s, when the scale was still […]

Empire Building

Easter with The Big Red Cheese

Most little kids related Easter with the Easter Bunny. For me, and stillto this day, Easter makes me think of a different jovial character. Captain Marvel. When I was little, many Easters ago, I woke up one Easter morning to see my Easter Basket, full of the usual fare: chocolate bunnies, peanut butter eggs, jelly […]

Mite Makes Right

Editor’s Note: It’s been pretty dark, tense times lately, I think we can all agree, and so I really felt like spreading a little goofy fun instead. Enjoy this lost entry from the COMICS 101 Archives: With Superman/Batman teamups on everyone’s mind these days, I myself have been thinking about a longtime favorite Batman teamup […]
