#Kirby100: Glenn Walker on The Green Arrow


When most folks think of Jack Kirby at DC Comics, they think of the Fourth World and Kamandi, the older fans might say the Challengers of the Unknown or the Newsboy Legion, or even the Sandman.  Would anyone say Green Arrow?  But it’s true, for seven months in 1958 the King gave us a Green Arrow unlike anything we’d seen before, and it could have been even wilder.  Meet me after the jump for Jack Kirby’s The Green Arrow!

Batlad v. Superboy: The Silver Age Dawn of Justice


The film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn’t be the first time the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel have met for the ‘first’ time, and be assured it won’t be the last either. I’m going to talk about one of those first times, one that dates back to when Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne were teenagers.

Worlds Finest Silver Age Omnibus Vol 1Can’t we all just get along?

The answer is no, if we go by the title, merchandising, clips and various trailers to the March 24th sure-fire blockbuster film premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Black and blue. God versus man. Day versus night.

If we didn’t know better, we’d think that Batman and Superman never got along! But we all know better than that, don’t we?

That’s why today’s release of the hardcover compilation, Batman & Superman In World’s Finest: The Silver Age Omnibus Vol. 1 is the real-deal story primer for the upcoming film.

Follow me after the jump for the black and blue scoop!

Tainted Love for the DC Comics Trinity

stalk1Last February I talked about the trinity of DC Comics – Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman – and who their true loves should be. This year I’m going to take a different tact. I’ll be talking about those particularly twisted folks who think they should be their true loves. Yeah, baby, that’s right. I’ll be talking Super-Stalkers after the jump.
