Samaritan is a fun superhero yarn. In superhero comics, you can’t look too close at the underlying logic; if you do, you lose suspension of disbelief needed to immerse yourself in the story. In Samaritan, you’re given a quick history you can’t look at too closely. Two brothers, who John (Stallone) describes as “genetic freaks” … More The Good Samaritan
When I heard Disney was doing a She-Hulk series I was ecstatic and very, very worried. Not that I spent a whole lot of emotional energy on it, but I really loved She-Hulk in the comics when I discovered her during John Byrne’s fantastic run. JB’s She-Hulk was comedy gold. She-Hulk was the “Anti-Hulk.” She … More Don’t Hulk on She-Hulk
I just came from Love and Thunder, and while parts of it made me laugh (and parts of it were comedy genius), as something of an MCU Thor-fan, I feel dirty. Also as a writer I’m simply “What was that? No, really, what was that?” Let’s talk about the humor, first. Obligatory Spoiler Alert L&T … More I Don’t Love the Thunder
So I waited until I could see the entire first season at once and binge-watched Ms. Marvel in a couple of nights (my favorite way of viewing the MCU’s mini-series offerings). I wasn’t expecting that much from it; something as actiony and intermittently lighthearted as Hawkeye, perhaps. I was pleasantly surprised. Ms. Marvel is “the … More Don’t Miss this Marvel!
So I’ve seen Doctor Strange 2: Multiverse of Madness. And overall it was good. I enjoyed it (see my comments on the Wearing the Cape Facebook Group page). But . . . I don’t think I like where the MCU is going and MOM is only the latest example of the problem. Hear me out. … More It’s Madness, I tells you! Madness!
Wow, a second “serious” blog post in just one week! This one’s inspired by what’s going on right now (Ukraine, of course). I’m not about to try and predict how all of this will end, but only ask that you pray for Ukraine as its people suffer in the crucible of war. But I said … More Heroes Without Borders
It’s now four-thirty in the morning. Two-thirty Las Vegas time, but I’m in Pensacola. I’m wide awake because my roommate had to get up and get out to catch his flight home. I was awake anyway, I do that around two to three in the morning. I’m not an insomniac; I’ll be asleep again in … More Rambling On
Hello Everyone! I’ve got no major news at this time, but thought I’d drop a post telling you what’s going on right now. Two big things this month: first, I’m in a 5-book giveaway with some excellent authors, most of whom I’ve met through the convention circuit. It’s happening this week, so if any of … More Non-Writing Stuff, and a Sneak-Peek.
So I finally saw Spider-Man: No Way Home (waited to catch it with a friend), and then spent some time thinking about it. SPOILER ALERT. I’m going to assume, as late as I was, that anyone reading this who hasn’t seen it isn’t planning on catching it in the theater. First, let me unburden myself … More Always a Hero
