The Green Lanterns of Sector 2814

The Green Lanterns of Sector 2814

My love of the Green Lantern(s) is no secret (partly because I think I mention it on every single podcast that we do) and it's a franchise which has had a bit of a rough time over the last few years. We don't need to speak about the 2011 film which caused so much hate and arguably derailed Warner Bros plans for a DC Extended Universe before it even got off the ground but the comics also featured a Rebirth …
Sanity Among Craziness: My Take on

Sanity Among Craziness: My Take on "The Killing Joke"

“It's all a joke! Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for..it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side?Why aren't you laughing?” - Joker
My next Alan Moore piece will be on The Killing Joke - maybe the greatest comic book story ever told. Most comic book fans know the story behind it and the events that took place. I'm going to try to explain the book a bit, so sit back, relax and …

Superman: Our Jewish Hero

Superman: Our Jewish Hero

Superman's real name is Kal-El, son of Jor-El. The suffix El means “of God” in Hebrew, with Kal-El defined as “Voice of God”. Before Krypton's doom, Kal-El's parents put him in a Moses-like basket, sending him down the Nile of intergalactic space until he landed safely on Earth. Superman and Moses relied on their faith in the kindness of strangers and both had sets of parents who chose to send their sons into the unknown. This all sounds a bit …
V for Vendetta: Terrorism Justified??

V for Vendetta: Terrorism Justified??

In thinking my next idea for writing I wanted to a full length Alan Moore article and then thought better of it because his body of work is astonishing. What I will do is break down some of his finest works ever and hope that you appreciate him as much as I do. The first one I wanted to tackle is Moore's classic graphic novel "V for Vendetta". I know Stu and Rory already talked about the movie in a …
A Batman Family Secret?

A Batman Family Secret?

I know, I know this isn't worth my time to read. The writer is just making up a bullshit theory blah, blah, blah. Give me 10 minutes of your time and let me explain. For 80 years, Batman and Joker have punched and laughed their way into the greatest rivalry in comics. This have been countless stories written about the two but one that has been hinted about in comic book and movie lore. The Joker is Batman's brother.... Don't …
Supergirl: Another Dumb Blonde in Comics?

Supergirl: Another Dumb Blonde in Comics?

With the start of the Supergirl series, season two in fact, I thought I would focus on Superman's cousin. She is actually older than the Man of Steel which many don't realize. Most depictions of her are of a tiny doe-eyed blonde who most fan-boys can only dream of meeting! She's much more than just a fantasy for comic book fans. First appearing in Superman #123 in August of 1958 she was created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino. Originally …

A war rages, two powerhouses of cinema are vying for your attention, both striving to outdo one another. Their aim, to win the hearts, minds and wallets of comic lovers the world over. Can the young pretender (DC Warner Brothers), wrestle the mantle from the experienced veteran (Disney Marvel)? Early signs point to no, but you can bet your life they'll throw everything at it. The key however is, will they do it wisely? Will they find financial and critical …
The Source of Everything Speed

The Source of Everything Speed

With all of CW's new shows coming back I thought I wanted to do a Flash article. I thought otherwise because most at this point probably know the back story of the Flash. One of the most important heroes in DC lore for various reasons I thought I would touch on one of his most important aspects his Speed Force. The Speed Force is an energy field that grants all speedsters their power from Barry Allen and Wally West to …
The Scarlet Speedsters

The Scarlet Speedsters

The Flash is one of the most iconic, recognisable characters in all of comic book lore and is a founding member of the Justice League alongside DC superpowers such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. He has the ability to tap into a mystical energy source called “the speed force” which allows him superhuman speed, the ability to phase through objects and makes it possible to run across water and vertically up buildings to name just a few of his …
