REVIEW: Superman and the Mole Men (live tweet transcript) (BONUS: The Adventures of Superpup)

Earlier, I live tweeted about Superman: the Movie. Rewatching that movie led to two things: first, it gave us an episode topic for the podcast, “The Test of Time”; second, it made me decide to live tweet while watching the other Superman movies!

JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 Geoff Johns, writer; Jim Lee, artist I know, I know. Superman belongs with Lois Lane. Wonder Woman belongs with Steve Trevor. And the world is up in arms because Superman and Wonder Woman were caught kissing. And HOW I know it is that the Internet told me. What the Internet DIDN’T tell me, or you either, was that in the context of the story, it makes sense. It’s a logical (as logical as love can get) … Read entire article »

Superman and Wonder Woman Sitting in a Tree (Cool Comic Covers #22)

It’s Friday! That means another Cool Comic Covers, a weekly (sometimes more!) look back at some of the most interesting, intriguing, and engaging artwork in pop culture.
