The Flash S03 E22: ‘Infantino Street’

afla1

After what happened on last week’s episode of The Flash was pretty much a waste of time, as the plan neither worked nor advanced the plot much at all, one hopes this episode is different.  The Flash recruits archenemy Captain Cold in his war against Savitar and they run afoul of King Shark – if nothing else, this will be exciting.  Meet me after the super speed jump for my review of “Infantino Street.”

Trailer Time: Wonder Woman – Final Trailer

aww1

There’s been a lot of talk recently about Warner Bros. and DC Comics not promoting this movie as much as they should, but here at Biff Bam Pop! we love the Amazon Princess, so here is the final trailer for Wonder Woman!

Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, and Robin Wright, directed by Patty Jenkins, will be released June 7, 2017. I love this (there’s even old school Golden Age villain Dr. Poison in this one!) and I cannot wait! What do you folks think?

It’s the best kind of comic book reading, believe me.

Now, you might be getting comics given to you as gifts. (Maybe there’s one or two from this list or this list.) But you might still want to pick up something to read that signifies the season. Something featuring the greatest superheroes and villains the world has ever known.

Aw Yeah It’s “Super Powers #1” On The Wednesday Run

super-powers-1Won’t someone think of the children?

The comic book medium is able to tell all kinds of stories, but often of late, the stories meant for kids has become something of an afterthought. That’s not to say that there aren’t great kids comics being published – there are. That’s just to say that the reading age of those that are actively interested in comic books has risen over the last three decades…and comic book companies have catered to that older demographic in their publications.

It’s great to see that, especially as we approach the holidays – a time of wonderment and excitement for children (and their parents) – that DC Comics has decided it’s apt time to publish something pretty wonderful for kids (and their parents).

Today sees the release of the super-awesome Super Powers #1!

The Ten Percent: Wonder Woman, 1941 – 2016

75-years-of-wonder-woman

“Ninety percent of everything is crud.” – Theodore Sturgeon

Hello, and welcome to another installment of “The Ten Percent,” a regular column where every other week K. Dale Koontz and I take a look at the inverse of Sturgeon’s Law; in other words, the small portion of everything which is not crud. Remember, for each film or television show that gets people talking years or even decades after its premiere, there are hundreds of others that peeked out just once and then (thankfully) disappeared. Those are the 90%, but the remaining Ten Percent are the works that stand the test of time.

Trailer Time: Wonder Woman

A new trailer for Wonder Woman just dropped and all I could think of was, “that’s more like it.” Unlike Man of Steel or Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, this film isn’t selling bleak. Take a look and let us know what you think.

Wonder Woman arrives in theaters June 2nd, 2017.

Avengers: Ultron Revolution S03 E19: “The House of Zemo”

av1

We’ve dealt with daddy issues before with the animated Avengers. Thor, for one, has had a rough relationship with Dad. While Captain America tries to remember his, Baron Zemo does something about his similar dilemma, and brings the original Zemo through time to the present. Can the Avengers contend with two Zemos? Meet me after the time jump for my thoughts on “The House of Zemo.”

The Year Of Wonder Continues With “Wonder Woman: The True Amazon” On The Wednesday Run

wonder-woman-true-amazonIt’s been quite a year for Wonder Woman, one of the world’s greatest and most recognized pop culture icons!

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!
