This Saturday, May 6th is Free Comic Book Day, a yearly celebration devoted to spreading the good word about all things comics! If you’re new to Free Comic Book Day (or FCBD, as it’s called for short), you’re in for a treat. All day long, comic shops the world over will be handing out free comic books from a wide variety of publishers… including DC!
The titular family of Bedrock is back, trying to figure out what civilization is in a way that mirrors our own great leap toward the unknown of our age.
Our main character is Fred Flintstone, a guy just trying to make it in the new world. He works at the quarry for a swinging and slimy Mr. Slate. Class struggles are woven throughout the book and it works so well at mirroring our own American society while giving us the lens and distance to laugh at it.
The month of March is upon us. While there are many activities that you could enjoy in this springtime month, may I suggest picking up a graphic novel or two?
DC has released some really great collections this month and I’m back again to suggest which graphic novels you should pick up at your local comic book shop. Also, there’s a theme this month! See if you can guess it.
Amanda Waller’s been shot!
Hold on just a moment because I’m not quite sure the significance of what I said there has struck you. Or maybe you’re all just in shock. But either way, go on ahead and read it again…
AMANDA WALLER HAS BEEN GUNNED DOWN!
They may not inspire the adoration and instant recognition (to say nothing about their value in the Super Hero Fantasy League) as Superman or Batman, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not every bit the hero. Even though one of them is kinda a villain. Yes, Powerless fans, I’m talking about Charm City’s two most frequently spotted colorful crusaders—Crimson Fox and Jack O’Lantern.
Some of the biggest storms start quietly.
I say this, having just finished reading the first issue of THE WILD STORM, the debut title in DC’s newest pop-up imprint, WildStorm. (Which actually isn’t new per se, but this version certainly is.) The Wild Storm, written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Jon Davis-Hunt, is the flagship and premiere title from the imprint and our first taste of what we can expect from the return of these classic characters.
LEGO Batman sure seems to like the sound of his own voice, which means he must be a BIG fan of Patrick Stump. The Fall Out Boy singer and guitarist provides Batman’s singing voice for his spotlight song in the upcoming, heavily anticipated LEGO Batman Movie.
