Goodbye, Batman. Thank you, Adam West.

*sigh* Goodbye, Batman. I was ecstatic when it was announced that Adam West and Burt Ward (Robin) would be guests at this year’s Silicon Valley Comic-Con, then equally disheartened when I never found them. I wish I could have met both, especially now. Adam West and his show literally influenced the rest of my life […]

Friday Favorites – Monstress

    It’s been some time since I’ve posted a “Friday Favorites”.  Couple of reasons. 1) I don’t read nearly as many comics as I should. 2) The books I have been reading, while enjoyable haven’t knocked me over. Enter, Monstress. Wow.  I’ve not been as excited about a comic in some time.  The first […]

Meghan Hetrick Talks Shop and Red Thorn

    The list of legendary series Vertigo has published is long.  Sandman, 100 Bullets, Hellblazer, Transmetropolitan, Preacher, Scalped, Fables, Y The Last man…I could go on and on and on. At this past July’s Comic-Con in San Diego, DC’s creator-driven imprint announced twelve new titles they hope to add to that illustrious list.  Today we’ll focus on […]
