One evening, back in 2017, I was looking for something new to try on Google Play, I found Justice League Action. I was interested when I saw some of the previews before it came out some time before but not having cable I forgot about it. The price tag was a bit steep for what […]
Superman’s New Pal, Don Rickles? Don’t you just miss those bat-shit crazy days of yesteryear? I know I do. There was a fine balance between fun comics and “serious” comics. We’ve come a long way since those days, but perhaps we’ve gone too far. At least in the comics. There are very few examples of […]
It is the 31st Century and the Legion of Superheroes is in dire need of assistance to defeat a group of foes that they can’t hope to match. Their solution, go back in time and enlist the help of the greatest superhero of them all… Superman. One little problem. They overshoot their target date by […]
Superman… but which Version? There are two pre-existing characters that can be featured in the upcoming project produced by J.J. Abrams and penned by Ta-Nehisi Coates. The search is on for a director and it seems like Michael B. Jordan is being sought out to play the title character, Superman. As I have stated before […]
Epic Byrne is my excuse to share art from my favorite artist of all time. You’ll note that I did not say “comic artist”. He is probably the reason I sampled other comics from the Fantastic Four, to Lab Rats. He is more that just an artist but also a wonderful writer. He’s a fan […]
If you are at all familiar with the history and lore of the Justice Society… forget what you know. This is a new iteration of the Justice Society of America. I won’t get into plot details here apart from it being the normal Flash adventure fair. The animation is OK, and the character designs are […]
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is a huge improvement on a movie that I originally liked in the first place. Being four hours, it has a lot of room to breathe along with some hefty character development. It’s an example of, like the first Wonder Woman, suits just backing away and letting the creatives do their […]
Superman & Lois: Impressive First Flight! This evening I watched the first episode of Superman and Lois. As a fan of the early seasons of Supergirl I was very impressed with the tone, writing, execution of the story and the wonderful visual effects.
I’ve had some serious artist block since last September, then in April things started loosening up. This quarantine thing has really agreed with me. There have been a few outright flat misses but I feel that these represent some improvements in my overall style. The key has been, no matter how happy I am with a result, I can erase and do better. While there is still a ton of room for improvement, I am satisfied with where I am heading… and having just turned 50, I am happy with any progress at all.
