5.2 Reasons to Celebrate Valentine's Day with DC Entertainment

Every year on February 14, the world gets high on love—breathing in deeply that sweet, rosy and chocolately Valentine’s Day smell that hangs over couples like a storm cloud filled to the brim with candied hearts and rainbows.

5.2 Reasons to Read DC Comics...Even if You Don't Like Super Heroes

We love comic books. Clearly. Just look at the piles of single issues stacked on our desks like the world’s most psychotically dangerous game of Jenga. Or take a gander at the literal butt ton (approximately 2.5 pancake pounds for your metric folks out there) of trade paperbacks lining our bookshelves. (Don’t look in the closet though. You don’t want to know what’s in there.)


5.2 Reasons We Love Ethan Van Sciver

There’s little question that we comic book fans love visual storytelling. It’s why we read comic books and watch blockbuster movies, sometimes even at the same time. (We once tried to read WATCHMEN while watching the Matrix trilogy. Yeah… Let’s just say that it was a long time before we could look at a plate of calamari without screaming and running away in terror.)


5.2 Reasons Before Watchmen is Turning Christmas into Easter

Christmas may be less than two weeks away, but for some reason, we can’t stop thinking about Easter. Maybe it’s because after so many candy canes, we’re ready to eat something else—anything else—and those brightly colored Easter eggs are a lot of fun. After all, eating them is only part of it. You also get to decorate them and then hide them, and some of them are filled with chocolate and jellybeans and other types of sweet, sweet sugar-infused candy goodness.

5.2 Gifts to Give This Holiday Season

The holiday season is upon us once again, which means only one thing. Well, actually, it means several things: hot apple cider is in season, we get to watch back-to-back marathons of "Love, Actually," "Elf" and "Die Hard" (the three best Christmas films), we're going to gain about 20 pounds JUST from binging on eggnog, and—most importantly in regards to this column—presents! So. Many. Presents.


5.2 Reasons Aquaman is the Sexiest Super Hero Alive

You know that story about that person who was a geek when they were younger but then grew up to become super attractive and successful and popular? Kind of like Ryan Reynolds in "Just Friends" or Anne Hathaway's journey from the beginning of "The Princess Diaries" to becoming Catwoman at the end (that was the plot of that movie, right?).
