As the resident trailer fan here, I feel it my duty to let you know that the new one for 2017’s Wonder Woman has hit the internet – and in my honest opinion, it’s pretty fantastic.
Many DC and Comic Book Movie fans have been very hesitant to get excited about Patty Jenkins’ cinematic adaptation of the famous female empowerment icon. But with the Comic Con trailer that debuted over the summer, and now this recent bit of advertising, Wonder Woman feels like it is going to be one of the better DC adaptations, and maybe will fix the issues of the past few “Snyder-verse” movies (looking at you, BvS).
The comic book world can be incredibly overwhelming. Comic book stores are geared toward longtime readers, putting the most recent issue in front, and then everything else in bins. Sometimes the bins are separated into DC, Marvel, and indie. Sometimes they’re straight up alphabetical. If you decide you’re going to go for trade, meaning several issues bound into a book that hopefully conveys a full storyline, you then have to hope that your comic series does not interact with any other comics, because then you’ve got to buy the crossovers to get the full story. THEN, pray your story doesn’t jump into a parallel universe that already existed and has rules that have been explained in another series.
I want to tell you about some of the issues I faced when starting to get into comics. Luckily, I worked at Borders at the time, and had some really awesome co-workers who helped me get on the right track. Here are some of the tips I’ve picked up over my years of getting into comics: Continue reading Daily Geekette’s Guide to Getting Into Comics→
Earlier this year, the world was treated to an interesting entry in the DC movie universe. Yes, Batman v. Superman left many of us movie lovers in a bit of a divide, and I sadly was one that still has a reserved seat on that hater train (at least when it comes to the theatrical cut of film) and it is a spot that is hard to move from. But with the release of Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. has yet again left the nerd community in a weird spot – are we supposed to enjoy this movie or hate it like Rotten Tomatoes would like us to? Well, internet, that decision is of course, up to you. But, as someone that likes to think for herself when it comes to films (obviously) I decided to go into this new DCU flick with a pair of fresh eyes. The results? Well that takes a bit of explaining.
I want to start this off by saying THIS IS A BIASED OPINION OF THE FILM SUICIDE SQUAD. The comments you are about to read may not reflect those of my Geekettes. With that out of the way: STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND GO SEE SUICIDE SQUAD NOW!
Harley Quinn fans rejoice! According to the Hollywood Reporter, our girl will be headlining a spin-off adventure. This project will not be a solo-film, however. Sources are saying this film will be a female centric cast of DC’s superheros and villains. Potential plots and other characters involved are being kept very hush-hush. The only other names and plots being thrown around with the project are Batgirl and the Birds of Prey plotline.
You may remember from my previous reviews that Hot Topic and I have a love/hate relationship. I love everything about the clothes, and the hardcore representations of fandoms. I just can’t stand their sizing! This time around, DC Comics Bombshell collection is on the block. Fortunately, my local Hot Topic had every item from the line in store. Everything I tried on is a size XL, except for the Wonder Woman shorts, which are a size 15. A quick note before we dive in, I am not wearing the proper undergarments. I wasn’t expecting everything to be in store, so pardon the sports bra. Let’s begin!
Batgirl Vol. 2: Family Business, written by Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher, features several 1- to 2iissue stories. Babs faces off against video game-makers gone rogue, Livewire, a new GCPD-sanctioned Batman, an evil corporation, The Velvet Tiger, and in the last issue, her own past.
Some of you might have heard that last night was a pretty big event in the DC movie world. On the CW, after the premiere of a new episode of The Flash, we got a sneak peak into what DC is cooking up with Warner Brothers in terms of their cinematic adventures. We got some general info on the members of the Justice League, footage from the Wonder Woman solo movie, and the debut of the first full-length Suicide Squad trailer. Was it good? Was it bad? Was it what we wanted? Well, these were only brief looks at these new movies at best, but they sure brought up a lot to think about. Here’s a breakdown of The Good, The Bad, and The Comicy.
Welcome to my sixth and final installment of my Teen Titans (the 2003-2007 animated series) character makeover project. Sixth installment, you say? Well, yes, as I’ve decided to bookend the series with a makeover for Terra, despite her complicated relationship with our team of young, intrepid heroes.
NOTE: Please keep in mind that this is just my process, it’s not the only process! Also, depending upon the project, the order in which I proceed may differ.
