I'm a sucker for TV shows on DVD. And even more so when said TV shows are super cheap. Despite having too much going on in my life right now, I picked up hours upon hours of nerdy television goodness recently due to the low, low prices.Gil Gerard headlines Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. [...]

Jeeg, PLee and I had a good e-mail discussion yesterday. Here's an edited version that we share with you. CT: Re: The Walking Dead . . . suddenly a genre show is cool and if you didn't watch it, you're a nerd outcast. I think I liked it better when society didn't like the things [...]

The pros are that he can do team [...]

The Howling Commandos and the Sliding Timeline

By | 2017-03-17T01:00:46+00:00 June 17th, 2010|Categories: Article|Tags: , |4 Comments

I've always been fond of the Howling Commandos, Stan and Jack's mid-60s creation that gave us a WWII "ethnic diversity squad" in the Mighty Marvel Manner. The Howlers have been confirmed to appear in the upcoming Captain America movie.Now one way this gets interesting is that while the original Howlers used the traditional white guy [...]

Word on the street is that "Captain America: The First Avenger" will have a big role for Cap's WWII allies, the Invaders.In the 1970s, Marvel writer and Golden Age fanboy supreme Roy Thomas decided to pull a major retcon and say that Cap, Namor, and the android Human Torch (along with various sidekicks and later [...]

Every so often these interests merge. And in the last couple days, I've noticed a few of these nerdy lunchy things.Michael DiGiovanni [...]

Well, who didn't see this one coming?I thought about making this write-up a simple "'nuff said" but that didn't seem fair.  Marvel Comics revolutionized the way stories in comics were told.  Taking the approach of throwing everything at the wall and seeing what actually stuck, Stan Lee would go on to co-create some of America's [...]
