Outside, the snow is falling and friends are calling “yoo-hoo!”

Come on, it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you!

Well, we’re inching closer to the end-of-year holiday season. Maybe you’ve noticed that your local mall is decked to the gills in tinsel? Perhaps you’ve guiltily watched one or two bad made-for-TV holiday movies on some run-of-the-mill specialty channel (so that’s what Winnie Cooper is up to these days! Also, she was great!)? Maybe you’ve been busily writing, then scratching, then re-writing various dinner engagements with friends and family in your December calendar?

Well, DC Comics and their stable of writers and artists have been busy getting various superheroes and villains in the spirit of the season, working tirelessly on a holiday-themed production of their own.

Today sees its very timely release!

Aw Shucks, It’s Millar With His HUCK #1 On The Wednesday Run

Huck1Everybody remembers that scene, in that movie, don’t they?

Revered American comic book superhero creation, a fictional emblem for those who believe in truth and justice and all things inherently good, snapping the next of his most feared enemy.

Yep. That scene from the Man of Steel film a few years ago.

Many people had serious problems with Superman killing the evil General Zod in Man of Steel. Superman is inherently good, after all. He doesn’t murder. He always finds another way. We here at Biff Bam Pop! discussed that very issue and that very scene in our Biff Bam Popcast! and we wrote about it here.

Acclaimed comic book writer Mark Millar decided to write a new, ongoing comic book series because of that scene. What he’s given us is Huck #1.

Time Again For Sci-Fi With Time Warp #1 On The Wednesday Run – March 27, 2013

The science fiction genre teaches you many things, but if there’s one specific lesson it reminds you of again and again, it’s that time is circular. Whether it’s a memorable episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation or a great read by Phillip K. Dick, events, we’re told, are meant to be repeated.

The same is true in comics.

Back in 1979-1980, DC Comics published the five-issue sci-fi anthology series, Time Warp. Today, the title comes back with a more sophisticated slant, courtesy of top industry writers and artists and published under the Vertigo Comics banner.

And boy! Is there a lot to look forward to here!

Batman Has His Turn At Avenging This Week On The Wednesday Run – May 9, 2012

With all of the recent The Avengers film and Avengers vs. X-Men news making the rounds on various websites, newspapers, television commercials and radio spots these days, you’d think that DC Comics had ceased publishing comics.

Not true!

The company that took the brave leap of restarting and/or rebooting all of their characters and titles last September with brand new first issues, has been publishing comic books a-plenty.

Of those fifty-two separate publications, Batman has been one of my favourites – but never more so than with today’s release.
