Superhero Zodiac Signs

As I delve deeper into my own personality and how the stars aligned to help carve my nature, it interests me to see other peoples traits come out based on their birth. As I wrote up Augusts Pop Culture History, I found it a bit shocking that Spider-Man was first seen in August, and he…

Movie Review: Incredibles 2

Contemplating the original Incredibles I can confidently say that it is my favourite of the Pixar line-up. Toy Story was a mind-blowing event and one of the first movies I had seen without parental supervision. But, Incredibles spoke to the comic nerd I have always been. The fact it came out during my adulthood, pre-children,…

Top Ten Superhero Families

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

More importantly may be the big trailers expected like Thor, and Star Wars. But, probably already dropped by the time…

Deconstructed: NFL SuperPro #1

I have a special treat in store for todays Deconstructed. A book that has been referred to as the worst comic ever created. I recently wrote about a panel at Edmonton Expo that featured legendary creator Bob Budiansky. During a recap of his all-star career, he brought up SuperPro as one of his most silly…

Namor the Sub-Mariner is an importants piece to Marvel Universe cannon. Sometimes the hero, often the villain, the first comic book anti-hero. The king of Atlantis has aligned with…
