  • Best Eps: Freaks and Geeks – “Smooching and Mooching”

    In this feature I take a look at one episode that marks a high point in a television series. It’s not necessarily the absolute best a series has to offer (that’s always debatable), but it’s an episode that remains lodged in memory long after I first watched it. I still remember watching Freaks and Geeks…… Read more

  • Book Review: Tom Taylor – Injustice 1 + 2

    I’m a big fan of superhero alternate history stories. Superman: Red Son and Batman: Earth One are two favorites of mine. Although I’ve never played the Injustice games (I’m not into the NetherRealm fighting style), any series in which Superman becomes a despot garners my attention.

I’d heard good things about the series before (it was originally released in 2008), but I never bothered checking it out. Now I’ve watched both seasons, and I’m impressed.  The Spectacular Spider-Man retreads ground so…… Read more

  • Top Ten: Spider-Man Costumes

    I’ve been planning this feature for years. Spider-Man is my favorite superhero, and he’s worn plenty of iconic costumes throughout his history. Before jumping ahead, let’s establish some ground rules. First, the costumes on the list must be unique, not slight variations of other costumes. Only suits worn by characters identifying as Spider-Man are in…… Read more
