    Tate’s Phone Number: 954-748-0181 Email: emailus@tatescomics.com Address: 4566 North University Drive, Lauderhill, Florida, 33351 For reasons that elude me now, I found myself looking for something to do outside of Miami once.

    Webcomic Capsules — school, college and roommates

    Today’s Capsules is all about student life. Although I have to say our characters do anything but study–apparently, that’s not interesting material for a webcomic.

    Review: Cyborg 009 graphic novel, Archaia, 2013

    Cyborg 009 F. J. DeSanto, Bradley Cramp, Marcus To, Ian Herring Published by Archaia, 2013 I don’t hate it. But this book feels rushed off its feet; a recap for old hands, not a reboot for new eyes. I’m a little familiar with Cyborg009–I’ve watched an episode of the 1968 cartoon (“anime”) and read a

    Review: Batwoman #26

    Batwoman #26 Marc Andreyko, Jeremy Haun DC Comics *Sigh* I could leave it at that, but then you’d have no idea what I’m sighing about. Which, while potentially hilarious, would mean that I wouldn’t have the chance to go on at great length about my favorite comic book subject: Batwoman. We all know how much

    G-Mart Comics Address: 44 East Main Street, Suite 101, Champaign, Illinois 61820 Phone: (217) 356-7733 I’m not gonna lie to you: this place struck me as a bit strange.

    Review: The Time of the Doctor

    After a rocky series 6 and 7, Doctor Who’s triumphant 50th anniversary special seemed to presage a return to the heights of Steven Moffat’s first year as showrunner. In retrospect, perhaps there was no way for him to live up to those renewed expectations

    What I gave my family for Christmas and why you should care

    I am one of those: the relative who gives you presents you wouldn’t have asked for, in the hope that you will discover that you should have. In a prose family, I give comics. But I don’t give them willy-nilly; I give them because I love them, to people whom I love, in the hope

    New behind the scenes Gravity featurette!

    Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter shared this new Gravity featurette. It’s the second piece of smart marketing/art (smartketing?) from the team behind the smash hit. The release feels like a sales push and a bit of Oscar campaigning all in one. Usually these featurettes are DVD bonuses, but this one tells us: Gravity is important; Gravity is serious;
