Emerald Dawn II

This is the last of my Green Lantern posts for a bit.  I’ve told you all about Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Alan Scott – have mentioned Kyle Rayner, but not much cuz he was after me for…

The Birthday Post

It’s that time of year again, October the 18th.  My birthday. In the past, I have written all sorts of things when my birthday comes along, including stories from my younger days, of people who have been a part of…

The Original Green Lantern

Before Hal Jordan or John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner came along, there was another Green Lantern.  The Original. Born in the ‘Golden Age of Comics’ (1930’s-1940’s), this Green Lantern was more magical than SciFi.  His name was Alan…

Where’s the SciFi love gone?

Where’s the love for SciFi? So. I’ve noticed a trend. No love for SciFi (and Fantasy). ABC recently told the makers of the new ‘V’ remake/reboot not to play up the ‘SciFi’ aspects of the show. In fact, they asked…

Interesting things from the web

Batman: Prodigal

If you could say one nice thing about the whole mega crossover extravaganza event called ‘Knightfall’, ‘Knightquest’ and ‘KnightsEnd’ – it’s that it had a monumental epilogue that every Batman fan (I think) wanted to see: Dick Grayson stepping up…

Batman: KnightsEnd

The culmination of a story that had Batman beaten and broken, then replaced, KnightsEnd sees Bruce Wayne return to reclaim his mantle and his city. Gotham is a mess. Police Commissioner Gordon no longer trusts the Batman, Robin has been…

Batman: Knightquest

Following Knightfall, Knightquest was the aftermath of Bane breaking The Batman’s back in the Batcave, then taking over Gotham. Something had to be done. Gotham needed a Batman. Knightquest was actually two separate storylines. In the first, The Search, Bruce…

Evermist-Chapter 1

Chapter One Elias folded his good white shirt and placed it in the duffel atop his other worldly possessions he was allowed to take with him; two pairs of pants – one black, one dark blue, small clothes and undershirts,…
