DC Comics’ All-Star Superman!

Even though it is a year or so until this animated film can be purchased, there has been a lot of buzz about translating this Grant Morrison/Frank Quitely comics mini-series. Honestly, it’s one of my all-time favorite Superman stories. I wish Superman was more like this all the time!

A new preview has been released, and you can check it out below:

Like vampires, zombies have hit the big time.

Programs like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries have shown how popular blood-suckers can be. But what about their undead buddies, the zombies?

Turns out they are getting their shot at stardom as well. Just look at The Walking Dead, a comic being turned into a television program on AMC.

Since this is the unofficial end of summer, I hope you will take this chance to get out in the sun and enjoy the warm weather while we still have it! I’ll be back next week, and I’m sure there will be lots of time to spend indoors during the “Brrrr” months–September, October, November and December!

I continue to think that the state of political discussion has degenerated to where it seems none is possible. Or at least, if someone states something that is disagreed with, then extreme actions must be taken against them.
