DC Licensed Sexist Tees Bashed by Fans

Let’s admit it, anything sexist gets the attention of people. Some women get offended more easily than others. Some men laugh at it, while others agree with how distasteful things are – depending on the specific situation. In this particular case, DC licensed sexist tees are getting “fans” all riled up because, well, they are […]

Flat Design Is Fantastic With These Superhero Illustrations!

Graphic design trends come and go, but their subjects tend to stay the same. Geek graphic designers love to feature superheroes, and us bloggers are more than happy to write about them! Flat design is a big trend in the digital art field and we’re liking how sleek and clean it is. Designer Jeffrey Rau made a […]

Save As Much As 26% When You Pre-Order Justice League: War!

Believe it or not, but there was a time where the world (well, the world in comics) had no idea superheroes existed. Justice League: War shows us how DC’s foremost superhero team came together to save Earth from an alien attack. This animated movie is based on the New52 series Justice League: Origin created by […]

When Superheroes Invade Seurat’s Head

Who said superheroes can’t enjoy a lazy afternoon now and then, as a group? ForeverGeek readers, I leave it to you to come up with creative stories about each character in the painting. Some of you may recognize this painting being inspired by “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat, […]

The Pros and Cons of DC and Marvel on Screen

Editor’s note: This post is written by our friends from World of Superheroes. We’d love to hear what you think – whether you’re a DC or Marvel fan! DC Pros DC Pro #1: DC started it off. Source Don’t get me wrong I think that the television shows were great; Hulk starring Lou Ferrigno, the […]

Solid Foundations

A 'revolutionary' announcement, as it reveals DC catching up with technology and style that Marvel has already used and pioneered by many indie creators.

Untapped Potential

Now we all love a good inter-company crossover. Over the years, Superman and Batman have met characters as diverse as the Predator to Bugs Bunny; Superman has met the Thundercats (and going back in time a few decades, He-Man and the Masters Of The Universe), while the Avengers, well......

How Much Is Too Much?

Time travel is a much loved trope of all science fiction and fantasy, yet it can frequently suffer the criticism of becoming a Deus Ex Machina.

Everything You Know Is…..

So now we are two issues in to a title both eagerly awaited and dreaded by this writer, the ominously entitled Constantine. Ominously, because let's face it, the film of the same name was mediocre. Dreaded as we have just seen over 300 issues of history of the character wiped out (as I may have mentioned).

A New Age Cometh!

This month’s Previews carries an infrequent Marvel cover (now that they have their own Previews magazine), which one can read simply as a story development or as a signifier of the already heralded potential alternate reality to undo the damage delivered by Ultron. Of course, Marvel is no stranger to alternate realities, or reality re-writes, […]

Justice Leagues – Who’s Your Favorite?

I don’t think that anybody would argue that Grant Morrison produced the quintessential Justice League in the first series titled just with the initials JLA. With enormous concepts and world-shaking threats nearly every storyline, this is what we expected from DC’s big seven. Character development of the major players was reserved to the pages of […]

Aping The Trends (Or Is It Time For The Inferior Five Again?)

Last week, DC announced the revamp / relaunch / re-imagination for the New Age of the Green Team; four unbelievably rich teenagers with a mission to make the world a better place. Meanwhile, taking the themes of the Occupy Movement, with the (now not so very fresh and new) narrative of the 99% and the […]

Even Nostalgia Gets a Revamp!

And what a coincidence, just in time for Christmas. One has to wonder if comics will ever get over its love affair with the Thirties, or if indeed it should. It was the Thirties after all that gave birth to the longest surviving comics company, along with a host of other well-established characters that we […]

Keeping Up The Numbers

January solicitations reveal that another four titles of the DCnU will be joining December’s issue of G.I. Combat in carrying the ‘Final Issue’ tagline. It’s a mixed bunch, and the NYCC has done little to confirm what will replace them. The latest round of casualties are Legion Lost, Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E., Grifter and the […]

Losses And Gains

So, now we know. In the wake of the creator re-shuffle at Marvel, Rick Remender confirmed on Monday via Twitter that he is leaving the Uncanny X-Force and the Secret Avengers. With his departure, the former of the two will cease publication. With a full thirty-seven issues, it has been an enjoyable ride, combining the […]

But With My Power Of Super-Entitlement…..

Newsarama have done a phenomenal breakdown of the complexities of the current executor of the Shuster estate attempting once more to claim the rights over Superman. I would not want to repeat it here, nor compete, but I do have a lot of thoughts to share. The first thing I notice is that the new […]

Inspiring Loyalty?

There’s providing a service, and then there is gouging. Cover price has long been a point of contention within the comics industry, never more so on the advent of the digital market. Comic stores felt threatened (rightly so) and after much discussion, a policy was hammered out that ensured that the local physical stores did […]

The Art Of The Franchise Crossover

While there is little on this week’s shipping list that fills me with enthusiasm, this is by far made up for with the news that IDW are releasing another of their franchise crossovers. As a science fiction fan since a small child, then this is a landmark event. What are the two biggest names in […]

Permanence

How permanent are our comic book universes? Even as I ask the question, I find myself wondering what that very word means. With DC’s recent announcement of the return of Earth 2 and the Shazam family of characters, we know the enduring characters and settings will return again and again. The recent (and thoroughly enjoyable) […]
