I’ve never read Dune, but I did play the video game as a kid and spent many an hour sitting and waiting while whatever plane or worm I was riding was out there trying to find a sietch and become friends with fremen, oh…

Last updated on May 30th, 2013 at 02:35 pmDiversify Diversifying your investments is all about spreading the risk. As the old saying goes ‘it’s never wise to have all your eggs in one basket’. If you had all your money in real estate and the real estate market tanked you’d be in a lot of trouble, financially at least. People with investments…

Last updated on December 21st, 2012 at 10:01 amWith the exception of maybe Alpha Flight’s Puck there has never really been a Canadian superhero as popular as Wolverine. Logan has been a hit with readers since John Byrne decided that he didn’t want the only Canadian X-Men on the team to be a total loser, so he upped the ante…

Last updated on December 25th, 2014 at 05:02 pmThis Saturday’s fifth annual Joe Shuster Awards was an absolute blast. Lots of laughs and tears, while it was a shame that not many of the winners were present – there was more than enough memorable moments (I’m looking at you, Andy B!) that elevated it from as typical award show to…

Last updated on May 30th, 2013 at 01:55 pmPep Comics #22, MLJ Magazines, December 1941 In Pep Comics #22 (December 1941), MLJ Magazines quietly published an untitled six-page story that featured a girl-crazy teen named Archibald Andrews. Pep Comics was a superhero title featuring the likes of the Shield and the Hangman so the Archie story insert seemed puzzling but somehow Archie struck a cord.…

Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #125: “Superman’s Saddest Day!”   The Cover: Pure gold we tell you! Jimmy and Superman are doing what best buds do; sitting back and watching movies together. Of course they just happen to be watching what must be the saddest movie ever, since Superman is bawling like a baby. I like to think that the footage…

DC’s The Source has posted a few pages from the first issue of James Robinson (Starman and JLA: Cry for Justice) and Mark Bagley (Trinity, Ultimate Spider-Man) run on Justice League. While this doesn’t necessarily look like it’s going to introduce the whole ‘trinity 2.0*’ more like wrap up a few storylines from the past. I hope this does well,…

This little gem comes from WindWak3r‘s Deviant art pic and to be honest it’s an absolutely beautiful picture though it’s a pretty horrific thought. I can’t imagine anyone who’s actually a Carnage fan (outside of Ultimate Carnage) – but this is the most interesting thing that they could do with the character, and if there’s any actress who’s got the…

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of what Dale Eaglesham and Jonathan Hickman are doing with the Fantastic Four – specifically with Reed Richards. Taking Reed away from the troubled distant (possibly asperger) Reed and making him more of a Tom Strong type pulp science hero is one of the most inspired ideas among many a inspired ideas*. (Seriously…
