Marvel Does a Brutal Take Down of Its Own Lead Writer

Human potato Dan Slott was the center piece of SAVAGE hit piece by… Disney Plus?!?! There is a new documentary series on Disney's premier and unwatched streaming service called Marvel 616. The title refers to their main timeline of Earth 616, as opposed to DC's more solipsistic, Earth One. Mostly, this docu-series is about things like cosplay, Marvel Comics' impact on other cultures, and the 1970s Japanese Spiderman TV series. (Which I thought was going to be the only interesting thing on the...

Wonder Woman Dumped on HBOmax

The studios are now making strategic business decisions on the basis of a projected Biden bailout.  Wonder Woman 1984 is going to begin streaming on Warner Media's HBOmax on Christmas Day. This will be in conjunction with a simultaneous release to whatever theaters are open to show it.  If you take the No Time to Die asking price tag of 600 million as a benchmark for what a modern tent pole film has to make at the box office to turn...

Rob Liefeld SAVAGES Former DC Publisher Dan DiDio

Hyper-successful artist Rob Liefeld has a podcast where he talks about the past of comics, and nothing's been more interesting to watch than the trainwreck of DC Comics which started around the New 52 more than a decade ago, through the present where they are on one of the biggest collapses of history.

Blogs and Ends: The Hump Day Dump

I use these Blogs and Ends posts when I need to do a roundup of smaller stories that don't really rate a separate post of their own. FIRST Bad news for Square Enix, they did business with Disney.   Their new Avengers game is probably the biggest bomb for that company in twenty years. They're reportedly out $74,000,000.  The last time Squaresoft had a flop this bad they had to merge with Enix.  I don't know who they'll have to merge with to survive this...

The Womandalorian: Genocide and B-e-e-e-w-b Armor

Baby Yoda devours the unborn!!! Proud Mandalorian women forced to dance on the pole!!! And I thought this season was going to be dull.  I honestly hadn't planned to revisit the Mandalorian before this season was over. After all, these days people tend to binge something like this, all at once, instead of watching it show by show. So, it makes more sense to wait until the season is in the can.  In this case, I don't think I can do that and...

The Dark Herald Recommends Truth Seekers

Remember when Doctor Who didn't suck?  Yeah, I know it's been a while. But fourteen years ago, it was something special. The first season was a pretty decent reboot but the show really found its footing in the second year. The best episode of that season was easily the Impossible Planet/Satan Pit a two-parter. These two episodes had all of the elements of classic Doctor Who.  An eerie beginning slowly turns into an unearthly mystery, that eventually leads back in time...
