Mjolnir Dollar Baby

(Other possible names for this post from Twitter: “Asgard as it Gets”, “Fear and Loki in Las Vegas”, and “How Stella Götterdämmerung Back”.)

As anyone who’s been paying attention can see, we’ve got a slew of comic book movies this year. From the obvious (X-Men: First Class, Captain America, Green Lantern) to the less obvious (Dylan Dog, Priest), to the debatable (Green Hornet, Conan the Barbarian). And we can’t tackle everything worth saying about them in the comic, so we turn to our often forgotten blog section! More thoughts (but no spoilers) behind the jump.


Watch the Smallville finale with Josh!

Friday, May 13th, 2011

If you’re a fan of Smallville (or even if you’re not) and have a Twitter account (or even if you don’t), have we got Friday night plans for you!

Join esteemed comic critic Josh Sands (@JoshCritic) as he livetweets both hours of tonight’s momentous series finale!

For good or ill (mostly ill, let’s face it), this dopey little show that was once considered “Dawson’s Creek with super powers” has lasted for TEN YEARS and carved out a place for itself in the history of Superman. It’s not a place you may care to visit, but it’s there, and it’s rent-controlled. It practically has tenure.  And for all the moments of pain and the few moments of pleasure it’s brought our illustrious reviewer over the past decade, he’s not going to just let it slip into the sunset quietly.

Starts tonight at 8:00pm, PST. You will believe a man can bitch!!/JoshCritic
