Review: Avengers: Endgame

"Avengers assemble" is a stupid line. Actually, it's a stupid line when spoken out loud. In comics it's a great line. You've got the alliteration of the two As lining up in print. It rolls across the eyes when read and you can do some great...

Review: The Umbrella Academy

Imagine this: one day, you’re a person who’s totally not pregnant, not even a drop, minding your own biz-ness, enjoying some beach weather, and then, wham-o, the next and you’re full-term about to burst, like Jesus or...

Arrow will end its run after 8-episode season 10

The CW's Arrowverse shows were the best thing you could watch based on DC Comics for a very long time. Hell, for a while there they were the best comic book TV you could watch period. And it all started with Arrow, which is now coming to an...

First trailer for Amazon's The Boys gives away almost nothing

Garth Ennis' comic The Boys is one of those comics everyone tells you to read because it's just so damn good. That's probably why Amazon scooped it up to be a superhero TV show. That and the more superhero content you can put out the better...

Deadpool cartoon may still be happening but no Donald Glover

Donald Glover's Deadpool cartoon would have been amazing. Sure, we didn't see anything of it aside from a test and Glover's hilarious takedown of its cancellation but I can guarantee it would have been the best. Sadly, we don't get nice thi...
