While Captain Comics didn’t personally attend the Con, the two announcements have been widely reported. And in case you have a life and didn’t spend the weekend glued to Entertainment Weekly…

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

Here in the real world, the DC series of miniseries called “Before Watchmen” was controversial. But there’s no debate about the quality of the stories themselves: They’re really good.

 

First, the controversy. It begins with writer Alan Moore, who became a legend in…

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

Although most comics are for adults, some are still for kids – and one thing they all have in common is that they seem to leap promiscuously from one medium to another.

From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 40 "But I Always Thought . . . ." the Justice League of America

Once again, gang, I’m going to blow away some of the commonly held misconceptions about the fictional details of the Silver Age heroes.  As I mentioned the last time I did this, an abundance of continuity errors made in the 1970’s became factoids when writers and fans who came in late accepted the mistakes as legitimate information.  When 1985's Crisis on Infinite…
