Starman: Bricks Past (or maybe Building With David '15)
The fine (if legally and morally questionable) folks at Sheng Yuan, purveyors of slightly-off-model but mostly pretty good Lego knockoff bootleg compatible minifigures recently made a figure of DC Comics character Stargirl, though she was packaged as part o...

Daredevil, comics, and Marvel's cinematic Lego
I haven't had a chance to finish the Netflix Daredevil series yet - as I type this, I've watched the first 7 episodes - so I don't have a complete reaction to it yet besides maybe a "Arrgghajsderbleereeeeee" sort of foaming at the mouth from all of the awes...

Less killing, more jokes (some thoughts on the Batgirl cover and other recent DC moves)
Credit where it's due to DC... they're awesome at pushing people's buttons. In case you missed it, the latest thing (in what seems like a long, long chain of events ) was a solicited cover for Batgirl featuring the Joker with his arm around the title charac...

RIP Leonard Nimoy
Leonard Nimoy died today.  I may have more to say on this later, but seeing the news literally took my breath away for a moment and it felt like a huge part of my childhood - my whole life, even - got kicked out from under me.  For now, all I can say is tha...

About a year ago, I went to the comic shop and nothing had come out for me that week.  I still wanted to buy some comics, because of course I'm going to, and in perusing the shelves of collected editions I stumbled across the...

I have Alda faith in the world that this will help you.
There's a lot of misery, heartache, and strife out there in the world today, my friends.  As you navigate your way through all this, take solace in the warmth and support that only come from the heart, soul, and reassuring gaze of Alan Alda in the role of C...

Pretty Sketchy: X-Factor #30, p. 19 by Valentine DeLandro & Andrew Hennessy
I wrote a little while ago about my unabashed love for Peter David's X-Factor , so when the opportunity presented itself to buy original art from the series (and at a price I could swing), I had to jump at it.  This page by Valentine De Landro (with inks by...

A while back I acquired this DVD-ROM collection of ever Star Trek comics published between 1967 and 2002 and I'll pick through it it every now and then. In the past year I started chipping away at DC's first (1984-1988) series, and in the wake of Leonard Ni...

Come eat these sour grapes with me (Or, left home again for nerd prom)
Tried this weekend to score tickets to San Diego Comic-Con 2015 (or Comic-Con International I suppose the proper name is, but come on, it'll always be SDCC) and, well... It was the outcome I was expecting, truth be told, but still disappointing. Not that I'...
