The Awful Superman Movie that Almost Happened

The Awful Superman Movie that Almost Happened

As you are thinking about the final flourishes for your Halloween costume, let the image above be a cautionary tale of how not to add your own special touch to a classic concept.

DC Comics Pop-Up Book

Stephanie and I have been seriously considering a purchase of Your Baby Can Read, the infomercial-hyped series that will have your baby tackling the likes of Barth and and DeLillo before they’re out of diapers.

DC Comics Chucks Kick Villainy’s Butt

It’s no surprise that I love me some comic book goodness.  Thanks to Stephanie, I can also add Chuck Taylor Converse All-Stars shoes to the list of things to which I am partial.  That’s why I was super-stoked to find out that Journey’s (of which there is one in the Greenwood Mall) now has special […]
