The deep chambers of Justice League International

I think it is safe to say that not every comic in DC’s relaunched New 52 got off to an incredible start. Still, many of those that were initially dismissed have picked up a bit of steam going into their third issue.

One of the New 52 on the outskirts of attention has been Animal Man. The line depicts the story of a man who can harness the powers of various animals at will - using it to fight crime and defeat villains.

Immortals hit the theaters this weekend. The action/adventure film is an artistic adaptation of the story of Theseus, who, most famously, slew the Minotaur in the labyrinth.

The new power of The Flash #2

The first issue of the new Flash, as part of the New 52 event, wasn’t really all that much to behold.

The first season (series) of the BBC program The Fades has come to a close after only 6 episodes, making it feel more like a mini-series than a television season.

The power of The Secret Circle

This teen urban fantasy (suburban, really) series has some surprising moments, but it’s still basically for teens.

Grimm recently debuted as one of the later pilots this season, and is the second show based on fairytale mythology after the Disneyish Once Upon a Time.

The danger of Catwoman #2

Catwoman has been the target of some hate from some corners, especially feminists.

A closer look at The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes

The first season of Marvel’s The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes has come to a close. If you missed it, you’ve done yourself a great disservice.

Review: Jurassic Park goes Blu-ray

Jurassic Park is a classic film franchise based on the novel by Michael Crichton.

The first two episodes of the new Merlin season are out, and the double-episode story seems to be the best Merlin tale yet.

The sucker-punches of Real Steel

In the near future of Real Steel, human boxing has lost its appeal, and in its place has risen an industry of new warriors, those who build, train, and control humanoid robot boxers for the ring.

The scars and rings of All-Star Western #1

All-Star Western is one of DC’s New 52. The idea is for each arc to tell a different story in the old-west past of the DC universe, mostly featuring the famous Western antihero, Jonah Hex.
