We are at the cusp of one of the great decisions of our age.  Sure there's that whole election thing in the fall, but in the coming days and weeks CT must decide if he'll break his self imposed ban on seeing movies in the theater. He has had enough bad experiences at the theater [...]

It's probably odd to come to this blog and read reviews about relatively recent things. A review of the new Knight Rider and now a review of Justice League: New Frontier that just came out a few days ago. Don't get used to this.Story:It's hard to rate this movie because I feel like I can't [...]

Here's the challenge...the Big Seven members of the Justice League each get to pick a backup, who can either fill in when the A-list hero is unavailable or show up for big end-of-the-world stuff.Superman picks Captain Marvel . . . similar power set, and Marvel is even more of a boyscout that Supes.Batman is going [...]

I've seem three different sites I frequent reference these custom action figures. I thought I'd bring them up here. Nice design of a Victorian-era Justice League. Takes the Gotham by Gaslight concept and stretches it out to the entire League. A story based on these characters would be great.I just mentioned this to PLee the [...]

I guess it began before I was even born. My dad collected comics as a kid and subsequently, I was introduced to them at an early age. The first comic book I remember getting was a treasury-sized edition of G.I. Joe #1. A few years later, I began collecting the Super Powers action figures which [...]
