I’m not trying to slander the name of a beloved cultural icon here, but I just want to make sure that anyone reading this is aware of the fact that Santa Claus doesn’t know a whole lot about comics. I love the guy, but he’s charmingly out of touch with most modern pop culture trends. […]

Only in Imagination Land would a man orphaned by the murder of his parents decide to dress in a skin tight bat costume in order to launch a vigilante campaign against crime. An even more preposterous concept would be that the teenage daughter of a local police commissioner would become so inspired by the aforementioned […]

Batman sure does have terrible taste in women. Every woman he has ever expressed any romantic interest in turns out to be some sort of arch-criminal, or journalist seeking to reveal his secret identity. Maybe Batman should try using his world famous detective skills to figure out why he’s so oblivious to his own terrible […]

I’ve heard good things about Rick and Morty, but I’m going to have to sheepishly admit that I’ve never seen a single episode. I traded my T.V. years ago for a near complete run of Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham comics. Nice, high grade copies. Totally worth it.   Rick and Morty #1, Very Fine […]

Deadpool versus Punisher! I suppose that really comes down to a question of firepower, so I’m going to give this one to Punisher because he has an awesome weaponized van and Deadpool doesn’t. Anybody else remember the Battle-Van Punisher used to roll around in? Haven’t seen him use that thing in awhile. I hope that […]

You’ve got Batman and then you’ve got Boba Fett. Their names both start with the letter B, they both wear a sort of mask-type deal, they both wear a cape, they both have all sorts of high tech gadgetry. I’m pretty sure that Batman and Boba Fett are the same person. There are just too […]
