Valiant: Keep an Eye on These Guys

Valiant was a comic publisher that came on the scene in 1992, started by ex-Marvel staffers with a vision to build a universe that could challenge Marvel and DC.

Beauty of the Beast: Wes Craven’s “Swamp Thing”

Joker’s Wild – Who Was The Best Clown Prince of Crime?

Militant Ginger
In an act worthy of The Joker himself, pirates leaked the trailer for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie from San Diego Comic Con; forcing Warner Brothers to release the trailer early, and give everybody a glimpse of Jared Leto playing DC’s most iconic badguy – The Joker. So perhaps now’s a time to look back over previous […]
