This week at CBR, I revisit the second Dreamwave Transformers miniseries, which made your playroom fan theories canon.
Grant Morrison & Dave McKean's classic Arkham Asylum graphic novel introduced a new villain, but readers will have difficulty finding them. I examine this obscurity this week at CBR.
MTV's cult adaptation of Sam Kieth's comic The Maxx had to wrap up its story long before the comic reached its end, resulting in an odd ending. I revisit the final episode this week at CBR.
I'm revisiting Stan Lee's 1990 attempt to pitch a Spider-Man movie at CBR this week, which does indeed feature the deflowering of one Peter Benjamin Parker. And I feel vindicated now, guessing all those years ago, that the Stan Lee/Peter David story in the Ultimate Spider-Man anthology was in fact an adaptation of this treatment.
Transformers publisher Dreamwave hired a fan-favorite writer to reintroduce the Turtles…and there was one odd caveat. I continue my look at these early 2000s revivals of the 1980s this week at CBR.
Superman's legendary first team-up with Batman Beyond was a landmark moment for the show and character, but not so much in the tie-in comic. I look at both this week at CBR.
I revisit twenty years of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy this week, specifically the number of scenes that remain on the cutting room floor (including a 2002 appearance from Eddie Brock and Kirsten Dunst dancing in her underwear).
My genre-bending 80s inspired thriller BLIND CERULEAN is FREE at this link for the next few days! Check it out and let me know what you think (Amazon reviews are always a help...).
This week at CBR, I chronicle some of the valuable art Peter Chung is releasing from his lengthy animation career. Everything from April O'Neil's yellow jumpsuit to Optimus Prime's death to the Rugrats' design...even before Aeon Flux, Chung was a part of your youth.
My CBR feature Page One Rewrite returns this week, looking at Frank Miller's earliest attempts at Robocop 2 (and here's come clickbait...I also reveal the comics legend who producers approached before Miller.)
This week at CBR, I look back at the Scott and Jean nuptials from X-Men: The Animated Series...and why exactly Bob Harras did indeed object to that union.
Alex Ross and Top Cow united in 2003 to revive Battle of the Planets for the new millennium, but this week I examine why the story remains incomplete. And if you guys know of anyone else interested in these '80s revival comics of the early aughts, it never hurts to spread the links around...
I'm not dead. This week mark's the 150th installment of Adventure(s) Time, and I'm looking at the Batman and Harley Quinn movie that didn't even exist when I started the series.
WildStorm's second ThunderCats miniseries went into rather adult territory, but as I detail this week in Nostalgia Snake, not every fan was happy.
I'm revisiting the 1987 Space Ghost revival comic from Mark Evanier and Steve Rude this week at CBR. Witness '60s nostalgia in the '80s paving the way for '80s nostalgia in the 2000s.
This week at CBR, I look at Marvel's final reprints of the manga adaptation of X-Men: The Animated Series. It didn't exactly give the title the respect it deserved.
