If you read the latest issue of Civil War II, or read the review of it here at Biff Bam Pop!, you know how it ended, and it was not pretty. How far would you go to stop such a terrible event from taking place? Would you imprison the actor before the act? That’s the question on all of our minds. Get a sneak peek at what Marvel Comics’ superheroes think, and do, in this sneak peek at CIVIL WAR II #6, after the jump.
Created in 1941 by the psychologist and writer, William Moulton Marston, the greatest of the Amazons has seen both regular publication and acclaim in comic books, books, television, video games, board games, toys and film, for seventy-five years. It’s a true testament to her inherent characteristics, chiefly that of being timely and important to any age.
During her 75th year, Biff Bam Pop! has celebrated and highlighted various publications from DC Comics featuring Wonder Woman from the first issue of her new monthy series, to her inclusion in the Earth One graphic novel series with the release of (finally) her own book.
We even got super excited, along with millions of other fans, when the trailer to her first feature film debut (due to hit theatres early next year) dropped.
Today, DC Comics continues to celebrate the character with another, beautiful, standalone graphic novel, Wonder Woman: The True Amazon!
Netflix has just released the second trailer for the upcoming Marvel’s Luke Cage and it’s fantastic.

Well, it hasn’t been there for some time, really. We’ve been talking about it in semi-regular columns over the years here at Biff Bam Pop! The DC Comics “sophisticated” and “dark” imprint that gave us mature readings of Sandman, John Constantine: Hellblazer, Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Shade the Changing Man, Fables, Lucifer, etc., etc., etc., etc.
There are so many. One of your all-time comic book favourites from any publisher is either on that list or should be.
But Vertigo, due to some neglect, some strategic misdirection, and a lot of parent-company interference, withered on the vine’s edge. Currently, the imprint is trying to reestablish itself with creator-owned properties, in the vein of Image Comics, and publishing critically acclaimed series like Sheriff of Babylon and Astro City among others. But it’s a long way from where it once was, when it released mature takes on DC superhero properties.
Today sees the first release of a new, mature, weird, and decidedly Vertigo-esque take on a DC Comics property…but under the umbrella of a new imprint.
Today sees the release of Doom Patrol #1!
Some serial killers murder quickly, while others incorporate torture and necrophilia into their operation. Perhaps one of the most depraved acts ever to be used is cannibalism. In this installment of True Crime Corner, we’ll look into the Milwaukee Cannibal, Jeffrey Dahmer.
Created by John Byrne in 1989 in the West Coast Avengers comics series as comic relief, the Great Lakes Avengers have bounced around the Marvel Universe in different forms ever since. From emulating other teams like the Thunderbolts and the X-Men to eventually becoming a government-sanctioned superhero team after the first Civil War, the Great Lakes Avengers have always been great fun, and now they’re getting their shot at being real Avengers.
