Superman and Me

I grew up on Superman comics, Superman movies and Superman tv shows. Eventually this spun out of Superman and into the DC Universe as a whole. Superman led me to Supergirl— and that’s a fandom that has defined my life. I was asked to talk about the two most defining moments of my fandom, the two opportunities I’ve gotten to interact with actors who have brought Superman to life. Two years ago, my fiancee and I went to Wizard World in San Jose. An inkling went through my head: Dean Cain was going to be there, and he was...

The Wicked + The Divine Christmas Annual is Ho-Ho-Hot

The Rebirth era is over, though my column will remain titled such for alliterative purposes. With the end of the Rebirth branding comes a new cover dress for DC Comics. We see the return of corner boxes, which honestly, is an iconic look. Titles that are canon will have DC Universe branding, while titles that aren’t will have DC Comics branding.

Rebirth Roundup: Everything From November 22 and November 29

We’re back! I’m sorry for the long hiatus. We missed two weeks due to website issues stemming from our brand relaunch. (Have you checked out our sister sites Ms En Scene, Bookmarked and Sidequest yet?) Then we took a week off in boycott due to DC employing noted sexual harasser Eddie Berganza, after the stories about him went to the mainstream press. Ironically, DC fired Berganza just two days after we announced our boycott, so it was short lived. …However, due to publication timelines, his name is still on some books. This week the only book that carried his...
