A Trekkie’s Take on Marvel’s New Star Wars Series

Star_Wars_1_Cassaday_cov

(If you search in Google for Marvels’ 2015 Star Wars, you will get many reviews of the new Star Wars comics.  Most of theses reviews are for the first issue or other individual floppies; this review is of the first six issues of the new Marvel Star Wars series.) I was born in the late 70’s and was too young to go to the theater and watch the original Star Wars films.  Because of that and my personal interests, I liked them, but loved more the Star Trek TV series. I tend to prefer my entertainment on a weekly serialized way (TV episodes) rather than a long, spaced out (no pun … Continue reading

The Other Man in the Yellow Suit. Talking with the Flash’s Matt Letscher

Eobard Thawne

The Flash just finished its freshman season on the CW, and it went out with a bang.  The season ended with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) facing offf with his mother’s killer, the man in the yellow suit, the Reverse Flash.  The Reverse Flash off course, turned out to be Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) but even that was a mask.  He was really Eobard Thawne, a speedster from the future, who hates the Flash, and found himself trapped in the past.   But when he first arrived in the 21st century, he wore a different face. The younger Thawne was played by … Continue reading

Dysart-Talks

Joshua Dysart’s Imperium, published by Valiant Comics and drawn by Doug Braithwaite, has taken comics into new territory. Beware that this interview may contain minor spoilers. Already known for his socio-political awareness, Dysart picks up where Harbinger and Omegas left off by turning his full attention to Toyo Harada – one of the most engaging and complex characters to grace comics.
