Giving up Gotham: Time to Go Dark on this Knight

I wanted to like Gotham. Now, after the pre-Batman Batman show has reached its midseason break, I definitely don’t like Gotham, but I can’t even muster up enough venom to hate it. Instead, it’s been relegated to a bin of other ...

Batman Eternal: Sunshine for the Dark Knight Mind

It is somehow both cool and uncool to like Batman. On the larger, overall scene, being a fan of the Dark Knight is almost expected, particularly after the runaway success of Christopher Nolan’s movie trilogy. Go to any Target, ...

New Graphic Novel Captures Essence of Andre

Andre the Giant loomed larger than life. I mean, he was called “the Giant,” so to borrow journalism parlance, it’s not like his moniker buried the lead. His exploits both inside the ring and out have grown over the years, reach...

The Squared Circle pins down wrestling’s glory days

When I was a child, I would call the region’s daily newspaper the Monday following WrestleMania to find out why the wrestling results were not being published. To the mind of an 11-year-old boy, how could anything in the world,...

Springsteen’s Songs Revive Memories, Build Dreams

We sat in a bar, the lights low and the music loud, as we said goodbye, for now, to our friend. For most, the liquor and tears flowed freely, the former to help forget the latter, as shots and backs were pounded in equal measur...

So Many Comic Books, So Little Time: A Guide to Some Super Titles

There are just too many comic books. Ordinarily, the phrase “too many comic books” wouldn’t be a bad thing. It is, however, when you modify it with any of the following appropriate words: “good,” “great,” “amazing,” “fantastic,...

A Nerd is a Nerd is a Nerd (Except When It’s Not)

Some time last year, a friend came to me with an idea that was part suggestion, part favor request and, to me, part cry for help: “I want to be a nerd.” To be sure, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being ...

This Halloween, Avoid Rob Zombie’s ‘Halloween’
