Although practically every comics fan does (or should) know who Jack ‘The King’ Kirby is, and the inestimable debt that we all owe to the man. Without him, Marvel Comics would not be what we know and love today, nor would the face of DC Comics be the same. Can you imagine DC today without [...]
As much as I adore reading the many licensed properties that abound in the plethora of comics available today, I find I always approach adaptations with more than a little trepidation, if I ever give them my notice at all. Yet as we at ForeverGeek celebrate all things Game Of Thrones related with the coming [...]
Quite the delicacy of first issues this week, and I am beginning to wonder if Dark Horse will retain its mastery of the licensed titles. Both Dynamite and IDW continue to challenge them with impressive offerings, as we see this week with the release of The Bionic Man #1 from Dynamite, and the return of [...]
Regular readers of this column will be aware how much I appreciate the beginning of a new universe, yet how often is it that we are treated to such an event with a universe that already carries such a distinguished pedigree.

I had been thinking the past few days about copyright in regard to comics, what with the successes of Dynamite with Project Superpowers and the Black Terror, even as the original Daredevil also appears in the pages of the Savage Dragon and had been a background staple in the pages of FemForce. There have also [...]
J. T. Krul, who impressed me so much with his handling of the Titans in his Blackest Night mini has returned the Emerald Archer (in one single issue) to the levels of greatness of the eighty issue Mike Grell series of the late Eighties. Where as let’s face it, the Evil Dead/Army Of Darkness mythos (and Ash most definitely) is not and never has been ‘great’.
