Why The New 52 Reboot Is Different Than All The Rest.

Hey all!  Long time no see.  I’m sorry I’ve been absent for a while but I’ve been busy writing for another site called Retcon Punch!  If you haven’t already, you should check it out.  We write reviews for all sorts of comics and our favorite part is when we get to talk to all of you in the comments section!  As for A Wild Crisis Appears, I’m going to be trying a lot harder to get back into my groove here.  I really appreciate all of you who follow me and leave comments.  I want to let you know that I’m not going anywhere!

Should We Still Care About Booster Gold?

So Justice League International Annual #1 recently came out and I wanted to say a few things about it, the less than necessary series that preceded it, and the titles star character, Booster Gold.  Reading this series and learning the few things we have learned about the New 52 version of Booster leads me to ask:  Should we still care about Booster Gold?   Continue reading

Scott Lobdell Does Something Right? A (LATE) Review of Superboy 10!

Scott Lobdell is currently writing multiple titles for DC Comics and, to put it kindly, he’s not been my favorite writer of the New 52.  If you’ve read my previous posts “Superman Is A Star And Should Be Written By One” and  “Tim Drake Was Never Robin? And More Reasons Why Scott Lobdell Angers Me.” then you know the reasons why I’m not the biggest fan of Lobdell.  However, in the spirit of fairness, I decided to write this post as he’s done the unthinkable and has actually written something I enjoy.

10 DC Properties Warner Bros. Should Focus On Other Than The Metal Men.

So according to the internets, Barry Sonnenfeld is going to helm the film version of The Metal Men.  In case you don’t know, The Metal Men are the creation of Dr. Will Magnus who, thanks to his “responsometers” imbued his creations with various (and often wacky) personalities.  The Metal Men (and Woman) have special abilities derived from the alloys (or ya know…metals) they are made from.  Sooooo Gold can stretch super far, Lead can stop harmful radiation, and so on and so forth.  Here’s the wiki if you care to know the rest.  The bottom line is they are a crazy bunch of super robots and are a lot of fun to read.  When they actually have a comic book that is.

The World Has Been Avenged. When Will We See Justice?

First off, I’m not interested in writing a review for Marvel’s The Avengers.  Mainly because the internet is already flooded with various reviews and articles on how The Avengers beat the bad guys and obliterated box office records.  It’s obvious that the world loves The Avengers (myself included) except for apparently 7% of the critics out there according to Rotten Tomatoes.  What I am interested in writing about is how DC and Warner Bros. absolutely NEED to follow Marvel’s lead (no matter how much it may pain them) and create a series of their own super hero movies that lead to a Justice League film.  Continue reading

Are DC and Marvel bringing back the Amalgam Universe?

Probably not.  But is this week’s issue of Justice League International just a coincidence or a fun homage to a time when DC and Marvel had a friendly rivalry?  As opposed to today where they have more of an “I’ll cut your heart out with a dull spoon” kind of rivalry.  Why a dull spoon, you ask?  Why not an ax?  Because it’s dull you twit.  It’ll hurt more.

And if you get that reference you have greatly earned my respect. Continue reading

Superman is a STAR and should be WRITTEN by one!

This article from Bleeding Cool got me fired up this morning so here goes.

Did you read it?  If not, it’s about DC announcing Scott Lobdell will be taking over Superman in September which leads me to the following question.  Why give Superman to Scott Lobdell?  Continue reading
