Tom King is Working on the "Follow-Up" to Mister Miracle and Vision

Superstar writer and former C.I.A. badass Tom King isn't just the writer of Batman wedding tragedies, gruesome Lois Lane death scenes, and shocking super-mega-crossover event comics where everyone receiving treatment for PTSD is killed by The Flash. He also does less lighthearted, more serious, intellectual work too, such as Vision with Gabriel Hernandez Walta and […]

It's been awhile since we've heard anything new about Warner Bros. Pictures planned New Gods film being helmed by Ava DuVernay. In fact, the most recent thing we know for sure is that DuVernay just signed a pretty big multi-year deal with Warner Bros. Television back in November.

A Look Inside the Increasingly Late Mister Miracle at San Diego Comic-Con

At the Tom King panel at San Diego Comic-Con last night, we got a glimpse at upcoming Mister Miracle. The series is late, after all the setup for Batman #50 was massive, the Walmart books have kicked off, he has Heroes in Crisis to manage — and those nine-panel grids don't write themselves. And so Mister Miracle #10, which was solicited for July 11th, is […]

New Dates for Mister Miracle as #10 Slips into August

You might forgive Tom King for being a little late with Mister Miracle. After all, Batman #50 was massive, the Walmart books have kicked off, he has Heroes In Crisis to manage — and those nine-panel grids don't write themselves.

Mister Miracle #4 Review: A Continually Powerful Yet Intimate Portrayal Of Depression

Mister Miracle #4 from DC Comics by Tom King, Mitch Gerads, and Clayton Cowles is an intimate affair, part courtroom drama, but the players a gaudily dressed 'gods' and the setting is an apartment living room. Let that settle in for a second, that peculiar, confusing juxtaposition: that's Mister Miracle, and that's why this series is fast becoming […]

What Jack Kirby Means To A Comic Fan, Critic, And Aspiring Creator

On August 28th, 1917, Jacob Kurtzberg was born in Manhattan. He was born to a pair of Austrian Jewish immigrants. He took to drawing quickly, starting in comic strips in 1936, and, in 1940, he teamed up with Joe Simon to create Captain America and Bucky Barnes. It's weird to think that a man born […]

Mister Miracle #2 Review: More Straightforward, Still Enthralling

After the frankly superb Mister Miracle #1, Mister Miracle #2 by Tom King and Mitch Gerads from DC Comics has a lot to live up to. And while it doesn't play with the form as much, or make as deeply cutting observations into complex human issues through the medium of brightly coloured superhero adventure, Mister […]

Mister Miracle #1 Review: Darkseid Is…What, Exactly?

So, the long-anticipated Tom King and Mitch Gerads Mister Miracle series is finally starting! #1 is finally out. Of course, how could I forget about this one?

Mister Miracle #1 – Darkseid Is…PTSD, Depression And Ever Present Cage

Today I read a comic book that brought me to actual tears. This isn't entirely unusual. I'm a fairly empathetic person, if I'm honest. But it doesn't happen too often in comics. When it does it's usually a sign of something very good. The kind of emotional pull that even if it makes me think […]

Kirby: King Of Comics Now Available As A Way More Portable Paperback

Now, as we celebrate Kirby's centennial, Abrams […]

Dark Days: The Forge Review- Mysteries I Didn't Want Or Need Or Care About

Marvel's big thing is throwing big-universe changing events on a yearly basis implying vast universal changes but often do not change everything in the way they actually end up changing things with their corporate initiatives that are afraid to maintain a status quo for more than a year that lead to run-on sentences like this.
