Who else watched the pilot?I liked its tributes to the history of the character, particularly in the opening, and I thought it balanced the real-world and TV-soap elements with the superheroics…Continue
"A mid-credit and post-credit sequence! With big-name MCU guests!
We enjoyed it, but when it came up at a con panel yesterday, I had to note that the tie-ins with the greater MCU seemed a bit forced. The movie (though clearly diverging from the old…"
"My dad was a kid in the 1930s and early 1940s, and had been a fan of the old Tarzan films. He and his friends would get up early on Saturday and walk along the tracks to find coal/coke that had dropped out of the cars. They would sell it in the…"

"The artist has conjured some imaginative otherworldly creatures for this cover. The one at the top left looks like a stylized snake's head atop the bones of a forearm. The lower right features a snail crossed with someone having a bad…"
"The first and best of Marvel's two Kiss comics poses a puzzle with its wraparound cover. Actual Kiss blood? Great promo gimmick. The band is on the cover: makes sense. Dr. Doom is on the back-- he's the feature villain of the story. But…"
