Comicscape: Valiant Returns by Joel Rickenbach, Comic Geek
(May 09, 2012)
I've referenced the 90's comic book boom many times in this column already, and Comicscape 2.0 is still in its diaper-filling infancy. The reason for that is twofold: 1. The early 90's was when I truly became a comic fan. I bought and read comics as far

Comicscape: Free Comic Book Day 2012 by Joel Rickenbach, Comic Geek
(May 02, 2012)
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately- what other entertainment industry gives away free product on an annual basis to try and keep their lifeblood flowing? Movies, video games, music… None of these industries go out of their way to keep the cogs

Comicscape: Supurbia/The Secret History of D.B. Cooper by Joel Rickenbach, Comic Geek
(April 25, 2012)
“What happens when the capes come off?” “Meet the Real Housewives of earth’s mightiest heroes!” These are some of the sensational tag lines Supurbia has been saddled with since its launch a few months ago. I say forget all that. Why? Because Supu

Comicscape: America's Got Powers/Super Crooks by Joel Rickenbach, Comic Geek
(April 18, 2012)
Not every column will be me gushing over some life re-affirming new hotness. Sometimes I will just pick a few new books that I think are worth discussing. There is a plethora of new series' hitting the stands this spring, and I hope I can help steer you in

Comicscape: SAGA by Joel Rickenbach, Comic Geek
(April 10, 2012)
We live in an age where film studios won't green light a project unless it's based on an existing property and already has a built-in audience, television networks creatively and financially slash the talent and budgets of their most popular and biggest ea

Comicscape: Avengers vs X-men by Joel Rickenbach, Comic Geek
(April 04, 2012)
I don't know about you, but I just can't help it. I can't help opening up my wallet and forking over my hard earned geek simoleons for the annual company-wide crossovers. They are the comic book equivalent of the summer blockbuster, and for better or worse

We’re Sweet on Sweet Tooth by Chad Derdowski, Columnist
(April 20, 2011)
Everybody loves a good post-apocalyptic tale. Whether it’s the Walking Dead with it’s zombies and gore, Planet of the Apes with a cautionary tale of social commentary, the wastelands of Mad Max or the strange world of science and sorcery that is Thund

Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood by Chad Derdowski, Comic Expert
(April 13, 2011)
To the surprise of absolutely no one on the face of the planet (especially those who read Captain America #615.1), Marvel Comics recently announced that Steve Rogers will be donning his old red, white and blue togs again, just in time for his big-screen de

Can Geoff Johns Save Aquaman? by Chad Derdowski, Comic Expert
(April 06, 2011)
Ahhh, Aquaman. The Dweller in the Depths. The Sea King. The most maligned do-gooder to don tights outside of Squirrel Girl. And hell, Squirrel Girl probably gets more respect than Aquaman. Much like the Canadian rock group Rush, Aqauaman seems to be e

Where Have All the Cowboys Gone? by Chad Derdowski, Columnist
(March 30, 2011)
Well, we certainly won’t be the first to voice our opinion about this topic. We aren’t likely to be the last either. But hey, isn’t that what the internet was created for? Outside of porn, the sole purpose of the ‘net is for geeks to complain ab

Scarlet Has Us Seeing Red by Chad Derdowski, Comic Expert
(March 23, 2011)
Imagine losing the person you love violently and unexpectedly. It’s not a new scenario for fans of superhero comics and pulp fiction; it’s actually a fairly routine beginning to an origin story. It’s the type of thing that happens every day, whethe

Movies Make Marvelous Comics by Chad Derdowski, Comic Expert
(March 16, 2011)
When DC announced plans for a series of original graphic novels featuring revamped versions of their most iconic heroes back in late 2009, Comicscape was all ears, and the Earth-One project killed more than two birds with one stone. Or at least, it will,

Hard Boiled by Chad Derdowski, Comic Expert
(March 09, 2011)
Beginning in 1962 and continuing over a span of 45 years, fans of hard-boiled crime fiction were treated to the lively dialogue, well-rounded characters and ingenious plots of Richard Stark’s Parker novels. Stark was a pseudonym of one Donald Westlake,

A Fantastic Life by Chad Derdowski, Expert
(March 02, 2011)
We never did weigh in on the death of the Human Torch last month. It didn’t really seem necessary, as every other website offered their two cents. Offering ours kind of felt redundant. But here we are, one month after the event and just a few hours re

Eternally Yours by Chad Derdowski, Columnist
(February 16, 2011)

ComicDiversity101 by Chad Derdowski, Comic Expert
(February 09, 2011)
Every week, Comicscape does its best to be both informative and entertaining, but every so often, we feel the need to stand on our soapbox and do a little preachin’. Today is one of those days, but as always, it’s for your own good. It’s for our ow
