The Archie Comics TV adaptation has been ordered to series for the CW. The one-hour live-action drama “will be written by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and produced by Warner Brothers Studios and Berlanti Productions and has been described as a subversive take on the classic Archie mythos. Greg Berlanti (Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, a bunch more), Sarah Schecter, [Archie Comics Publisher and CEO] Jon Goldwater, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa serve as executive producers.” I’m not sure I’m ready […]

Comic-Con HQ Launches Free Beta, Will Stream Con Man

Comic-Con HQ, the on-demand subscription video service, is now in free beta mode for iOS and web users. (There’s still no word on monthly fees, though, which makes me leery when it comes to giving them any credit card information.) Their free period ends July 25, which is the day after this year’s San Diego Comic-Con ends. The first sweetener to encourage sign-ups is a chance to win a free trip to the con for you and three friends if […]

Two Catwomen Meet Across Generations

I suspect most comic fans aren’t aware of Home & Family, a daily talk show on the Hallmark Channel hosted by Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare focusing on home improvement, parenting tips, health and fitness, and lifestyle issues. Yesterday, they aired a segment where Camren Bicondova (who plays Catwoman on Gotham) was introduced to Julie Newmar, the classic TV Catwoman. You can watch it here: It’s the usual happy chat, but it is neat to see how the character has […]

What Did You Eat Yesterday? Volume 10

It’s been nine months since the previous volume, but What Did You Eat Yesterday? volume 10 was worth the wait. As the series has progressed, Fumi Yoshinaga has expanded the world of her characters. Shiro and Kenji now share meals with a lot more people than each other, as we see more about the wider circles of their lives. For example, in the first chapter, the administrative assistant from Shiro’s law firm has taken her co-workers out to her parents’ […]

Captain America: Civil War Reflections

I had a fun time seeing Captain America: Civil War. The two and a half hours flew by, although when I left, I wasn’t as thrilled and excited as I have been after seeing other Marvel superhero movies. I think we’ve all become jaded and spoiled. A film like this — one that is really an Avengers movie, with so many superheroes battling each other under questionable premises — would have been amazing if released a few years ago, but […]

Breaking Cat News

You’ll know from the subtitle of Breaking Cat News whether it’s something you want to read or not: “Cats Reporting on the News That Matters to Cats”. Georgia Dunn draws her three felines — Lupin, Puck, and Elvis — as if they were news anchors focused on such topics as sun spots and eating plants and seeing another cat outside the window. The joke is the same throughout, rung out with changes of topic, and best aimed at cat lovers […]
