From that special moment in time way back in 1979, when Sugar Hill Gang rapper Big Bank Hank waxed poetic about the mack game that he’d once spit to Superman’s girlfriend, reporter Lois Lane, the long-running love affair that the hip-hop generation has with comic books was virtually set in stone.
As the Joker movie (that no one in any way asked for or wanted) comes out, I think it is important to take a look at comic book Joker’s origins and story lines. The Joker first appeared in the debut issue of Batman in April of 1940. He was originally supposed to be a single-issue villain but was editorially spared by Whitney Ellsworth. In his original comic book appearances, the Joker is introduced as a psychopath with a sadistic sense of humor. It was not until the 1950s that he became more of a prankster.

Hey guys! Today, we talk about a character that is very important to the DC Universe. He has been around in every major incarnation of The Justice League, down to the New 52 continuity.

Twinkle Annuals, which were especially for little girls. Twinkle started as a Comics Magazine in 1968 until 1999, with an Annual every year from 1970, and its last was in the year 2003. The Annual contained stories of regular characters, and some new ones, all illustrated with beautiful pictures. Fun, colourful, perfect for a little girls' imaginations. There were also some puzzles pages and pictures to colour in, very exciting for a child! The Annuals were printed and published by D.C. Thomson & Co. In 2012 Royal Mail issued a special stamp of Twinkle, to celebrate Twinkle's history!
Comic books have had a rough go of it in recent years. Despite the booming big screen business that has seen Marvel, and to a lesser extent DC, dominate the box office, the printed counterparts to these cinematic capers have struggled to make the same connection with the modern audience.
DC cosmology is made up of a pantheon of gods, cosmic beings, space patrol police officers, superheroes, and alien species. Within this DC Universe, as defined by the DC comics relaunchDC Rebirth, stands the Source at the edge of the DC Universe, beyond the Source Wall. It lies at the edge of the Promethean Galaxy behind the Source Wall, which is ornate with the mummified statues of great beings that have attempted to breach the Source Wall.
For anybody who collects comics that fondly recalls the martial arts movie mania of the 1970s, one of the forgotten gems of the era is Howard the Duck #3. Boasting a spine-tingling tale entitled "Four Fingers of Death," this issue was written by Steve Gerber and illustrated by John Buscema. It punched its way into the hands of readers in the spring of 1976.
In the acclaimed 2003 film Lost in Translation (stick with me here), Bill Murray plays Bob Harris, a lonely, middle-aged actor who’s traveled to Japan to star in a Suntory brand whiskey ad campaign. During his trip, he meets and develops a semi-intimate relationship with Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), a directionless, twenty-something American newlywed meandering towards an incredibly early pre-midlife crisis.
Despite what a legion of now grown-up X-Men cartoon and comics fans of the early 1990s have come to believe (and what Screen Rant erroneously claimed as a “verified” fact), Stan Lee, the co-creator of Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men, didn’t base the creation of Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto on Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.
