    To Marvel and DC: Superhero Cinema needs reinventing

    To Marvel and DC: Superhero Cinema needs reinventing

    Superhero Cinema is undoubtedly one of the most popular film genres today, with both Marvel and DC producing many billion dollar blockbusters. One of the films in the catalogue, you must certainly know, became the highest grossing film of all time. So, what’s my problem? No, I’m not obsessed with Scorsese, and the prolixity of his films. I don’t think superhero movies are like ‘amusement parks’. I actually think they’re brilliant. So, again, what’s my problem? It’s what I like to call, ‘Hollywood Syndrome’: the habit of retreading old ground over and over again, with sequels, spin-offs, and reboots.

    Dangerous Curves Ahead!

    Dangerous Curves Ahead!

    With the rise of the internet, many comic book companies have had to step up their game to bring readers a superior product. Fans can now find most of their favorite books online to read at their leisure and for free. With websites such as 'Read Comics Online' the industry is bound to take a massive hit financially. Fans can now literally read entire series from their computer or laptop without financial detriment. Yet it was a great comic book writer/artist who once likened holding a comic book similar to holding a pair of boobs; he stated 'they're always nice to look at but it's always good to feel one in your hands.'

    Facing the Shadow: Joss Whedon’s Kitty Pryde versus Emma Frost

    From 2004-2008 Joss Whedon wrote for Astonishing X-Men, changing from a world of Buffy, the girl-power superhero modeled on Kitty Pryde, to exploring Kitty Pryde herself. Illustrated by John Cassaday, the comics are collected in four volumes: X-Men: Gifted, Dangerous, Torn, and Unstoppable. It has many Whedon touches, including Kitty’s tangling with her equal and opposite – the dark shadow figure seen so often in Buffy.

    16 Times Comic Book Artists Absolutely Rocked Hip-Hop Album Cover Art

    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.

    Joker

    Joker

    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.
