"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Film, Comic Books
It started with the Vault Keeper. It was resparked by Rick Grimes years later. In between and all around has been Matt Murdock.
I write in my spare time, so I set up my site to feature some writing. To promote the writing, I joined Twitter. I met a stack of people on Twitter which landed me the gig writing comic gonzo at The Weekly Crisis (weeklycrisis.com). Through all of that, I started thoughtballoons (thought-balloons.com), a comic scripting exercise site. Soon after, I slipped my foot in the CBR door. It’s been a long journey from fictional to factual writer but I still wear both hats, at times.
I’m the bronzed Aussie of the CBR experience. If you think that means I look like Chris Hemsworth then feel free to ignore the image posted here. I’ve lived in one of the poorest areas of Australia and now live in the capital. To experience the rest of the world I utilise the Internet. I pay the bills by primary school teaching and my wife and very young son thank me for periodically dedicating time to being an Assistant Principal. One day writing will give me enough money to retire, at the moment it pays for all my comics with change.

Plenty of history, two bedded ladies for our lead, and a final panel twist to make you gag or cringe or pucker up really bad.
The Plutonian is either going to find redemption or he’s going to get really pissed off.
Iron Fist steals the limelight and Deadpool quiets down so as to be funny and not annoying. Then Dragotta nails the visuals so hard.
A very tight origin story with a twist on the end that will have you wondering where else this title could go.
Mysteries abound about motives and characters, and yet we still get time for a hero/villain fist fight. Comics how you want ‘em!
Othello might be his own villain and Hamlet could finally be his own hero. But how do star cross’d lovers play into this?
This is possibly better than you want it to be. It’s a melange of awesome brought to you by your childhood but defined to be relevant for the adult you’ve become.
Proof is on the move to find some truth, but instead he’s working against very nasty cryptids and people who want to see him dead. Oh, and your favorite action/horror slugs are in this one.
A young man, a mystical book, solid writing, a set up for plenty of further wacky tales. Check this out.
Black Panther stomps heads in the shadows really well, but a wannabe Captain Romania has the possibility to steal the show.
A damaged rocker is prepared to sacrifice some cats to get a chest plate that grants him artistic ability. Sadly, that sentence makes more sense than the actual comic does.
Imagine Glengarry Glen Ross meets Vampire Diaries if created by TimeLife. Then avoid it.
A surprisingly fun story with some moments of great art. Could Stan Lee be at it again?
It’s like Cronenberg got his hands on a superhero story and went for broke before the budget got cut. In other words, it's pretty damn fine.
The shrinking odd couple butt heads hilariously while stomping some A.I.M. goons. All around fun!
And we thought the Homelander was unsettled before, this is truly a broken man.
Marvel’s first family is split across many varied scenes but it is Namor, and his brutish actions, that end this comic on a great note.
Black Widow races through spy set pieces and tropes but never really earns her survival. A flat end from a brilliant start.
Vampirella is busting heads and wearing clothes all in the name of pushing the vampire genre into just one more set of hands.
Not the smutty gross out you think it might be, this title shows one of the best relationships in comics, and its slow implosion.
