Now the next entries are going to have to keep up that momentum. The second of China’s big SciFi blockbusters is going to be the alien invasion […]
In the USA today it’s the 4th of July, Independence Day. This means the usual run of fireworks both sane and incredibly illegal, as well as various displays of patriotism both true and bold.

With some encouragement from Rich Johnston and Mark Seifert, I’ve decided to take a look back at comics I’ve reviewed from time to time to analyze some interesting themes that they may share or conflict upon.

I have yet to review a comic about Superman himself for Bleeding Cool. Actually, even on my own site, I never talked about a Superman-specific comic.

I was first introduced to comics by my dad. It started with a Spider-Man obsession, like with many younger kids.

Twenty years ago writer Dean Devlin and director Rolan Emmerich ushered in the modern era disaster blockbuster with a film that’s never been called by its given name – it’s always been ID4 rather than Independence Day. It set the set the bar for everything from the Transformers franchise to the modern summer comic […]
Next month POP! Movies will release a collection of Independence Day POPs. I’d like to think that Funko probably has new ones planned for Independence Day: Resurgence, but I’m really glad that they decided to release this set first. The collection features U.S. Marine Corps pilot Steve Hiller and the industrious David Levinson. You can […]

As comic book readers, you will no doubt be familiar wit the argument for creators rights, in a landscape where characters are owned by corporations and veteran creators often have to turn to charity for their final years, while their creations earn millions for Disney and Warners. And most people believe that there should be […]
