The Future Justice League Has A Much-Needed Replacement For Its Asshole Superman

Sure, the Superman of 2015 might be having his own problems, but in the far flung future of Justice League 3001, Superman’s only real problem is that he’s kind of a massive asshole. This week’s Justice League 3001 #6 helped resolve that problem, by bringing on a much more rounded Super-Family member to sort it out. »Thursday 6:30pm11/26/15 6:30pm

Superman's Horrible Life Just Got Even Worse

If you’ve been following along with the Superman comics recently, you’ll know he’s having a hell of a rough time. He’s been de-powered, the world hates him, and he’s even had to get a new secret identity after Lois Lane outed Clark Kent as the Man of Steel. But it seems like DC aren’t quite done kicking Superman just… »Thursday 11:30am11/26/15 11:30am

Why Justice League Unlimited Was, and Still Is, the Best Superhero TV Show

We live in a golden age of superhero television. Hits like The Flash, Agent Carter, Arrow, and Agents of SHIELD dominate our TV screens. We champion them for their ability to bring some of the most mind-melting comic book sagas to TV—but one show did it all before them, nearly a decade ago: Justice League Unlimited. »11/13/15 3:20pm11/13/15 3:20pm

The New Superman: American Alien Comic Totally Nails the Vulnerability of Clark Kent

Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis has his own Superman comic now, and while it treads on familiar ground, it promises to be like no other: seven snapshots from Clark’s life as he learns to deal with his superpowers and learns to become a superhero. The first issue leans into the similarity a little too much, but it’s… »11/11/15 11:00am11/11/15 11:00am

Thank Goodness Supergirl Didn’t Make Us Wait For The Big Family Reunion

The first half of last night’s Supergirl episode seemed like it was settling in to a cute, comfy groove: Supergirl learns a lesson about becoming a hero, while everybody is kind of mean to her but then also tells her how great she can be. But then this show hit us with the reunion that we’ve been waiting for. »11/03/15 11:00am11/03/15 11:00am

DC's Latest Young Adult Series Turns Wonder Woman, Batman And Superman Into Teen Detectives

DC have been on a bit of a YA kick this year, striving to get younger readers into the vast cadre of DC heroes (and eventually, into the comic books themselves). We’ve got young Lois Lane spinning off in her own book series, but now DC’s big three are getting in on the action... as middle-school kids. »9/23/15 11:00am9/23/15 11:00am

Elected Queens and Princess Senators: How the Politics of Star Wars Work

Greetings, my magnificent mail-minions! I’ve got a swell—dare I say it, keen group of questions in this week’s mailbags, but I want to try something. If you have a question for the postman, you can email me, but you can also leave it in the comments of this article, and I’ll try to round them up for next week’s column. »9/10/15 3:30pm9/10/15 3:30pm

Will the Game of Thrones TV Series Actually Stand the Test of Time?

Greetings, folks! I’m in the desolate ruins of New York City, visiting the former Gawker offices for the first time (honestly, it’s hard to tell what was destroyed in the apocalypse and what is just unfinished construction). But there’s always time for mail, including why toy collectors are so bitter, whether movie… »8/27/15 3:35pm8/27/15 3:35pm

DC's 1982 Character Style Guide is a Beautiful Treasure Trove of Comic Book Nostalgia

If you’re a fan of classic DC comics, then it’s probably the artwork of the ‘80s that is burned into your memory—more specifically it might be the art featured in the rare, never-released-for-sale 1982 style guide. While bits and pieces have made their way online in the past, we’ve never had a chance to see the… »8/26/15 3:20pm8/26/15 3:20pm

DC Comics' New Formula For Success: Stop Shaking Things Up

It’s not been a good day for DC Comics. Earlier this morning, the company announced that it was down over $2 million in its total revenue and expenditure for the last financial year. It’s getting worse, though: DC’s reaction to the bad news is apparently to get editors to stop experimenting with its comic books. »8/25/15 7:15pm8/25/15 7:15pm
