DC’s Rebirth Series Puts the Fun Back into Comic Books

I’ve always been a Marvel guy . . . except when it comes to Batman, who has (without a doubt) the best and most psychologically complex villains. But Marvel had better beware! DC is coming up fast and furious! Both on television (Supergirl, Flash, Gotham) and now in comic books with the fun and highly enjoyable Rebirth series, DC is doing a lot of things right. While Marvel’s Civil War II comic-book series seems to be dying out with...

Fight Evil on a Personal Level by Finding Your Inner Superheroes

I remember when I was around 13 and bought yet another Spider-Man action figure. My mother was not happy about it—she expected me to be past the age of being into such “childish” things. Well, I’m now 34 and still very much a fan of all things superhero. I’m not ashamed of it, though I should acknowledge that it does help to live in a world in which superhero and geek culture is more alive and accepted than it...

A Twin Cities Geek Girl Goes to San Diego Comic-Con

San Diego Comic-Con (also known as “SDCC”) is widely regarded among fans as a “geek mecca,” and when you arrive at the convention, it’s not hard to see why. Boasting over 160,000 attendees in recent years, it’s been called the largest comic convention in the United States. It can be exhilarating for a newbie and also bit overwhelming at times. For me, being Latina, queer, and from the Midwest, the diversity that the Comic-Con experience offered was mind-blowing. My...
