Comics Cosmos – Constantine Lives

Constantine is definitely one of those characters that people either love or hate. He’s a smarmy, smart ass, dark magic Brit looking out for himself who falls into doing the right things for others… and often saving the world from dark forces. The Hellblazer is a comic for those into the paranormal side of heroes – plenty of catastrophes to avert, but no one flying in with a cape flapping behind. Instead, you get a sometimes drunk couch-surfer in a trench coat who just happens to know what he’s doing.  Continue reading

Comics Cosmos – Caged Lightning

If you’re into comics and superheroes, you have probably heard about a new addition to the CW superhero lineup of shows. It was announced last week that DC’s Black Lightning has received a full series order and will likely show up as a midseason replacement.

Comics Cosmos – Gert Kills Image

Comic fans know that the first Saturday of May is Free Comic Book Day, also known to many as Merry Comics Day.

Comics Cosmos – Misplaced Paradise

What if you died and went to your promised paradise, but it wasn’t quite what you were expecting? And what if obstacles kept being placed in your path when you decided to search for the true happiness everyone claimed you deserved? That’s the general premise of The Misplaced, a four-issue miniseries available as a collected edition via a Kickstarter campaignContinue reading

Best Geeky Finds – A New Cut of an Old Classic

In 1990 we saw Edward Scissorhands leave his castle on the hill to visit the small California town he resided in. Sadly, it did not work out for him in the end and so he fled back to his large home, all alone. He was not forgotten though. As we saw at the end of the movie, Kim told her granddaughter stories of the man who brought the snow.

So, obviously, this couldn’t be the end of the story, right? Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Stop the Loop!

Who is in charge of cleaning up all the time issues created as a result of Doc Brown and Marty’s shenanigans? Sure, Marty destroyed the DeLorean upon returning to 1985, but the Brown family had that extraordinary time traveling locomotive. Bringing Marty’s parents together and giving his father confidence did more than help give birth to 3 successful children. It made his father an author and made Biff a servant. This wasn’t supposed to happen though. These are all time paradoxes, also known as anomalies.

And Teddy takes care of these anomalies.  Continue reading
