With the focus on truth, ethics, and accountability more important than ever given our current political climate, it’s important that we understand the not-so-secret origins of investigative journalism and the woman who paved the way for the lauded efforts of today’s most trusted reporters, both real and fictional.Read More

Let me count the ways that Batman v Superman annoyed me ... do we have that kind of time?
We all have to be thoroughly sick and tired of the damsel in distress trope by now right?Read More

Last May, Gwenda Bond's novel Fallout, about the adventures of highschool-aged Lois Lane, helped to give the DC character some of the attention she deserves in her own right. And now, Lois is getting a sequel!Read More
You know you love nerdy lists and timelines, people!
For those just joining us, June is often considered Superman month. The hero debuted in the 1938 June issue Action Comics #1. The real town of Metropolis, Illinois officially became "Superman's hometown" in June. And in some comics, the hero celebrates his birthday one June 1o (the day he landed on Earth) and Clark Kent's birthday on June 18 (the day he was adopted by the Kents and also the birthday of Bud Collyer, the first Superman actor).Read More
Because nerdy lists and timelines are part of what makes fandom fantastic!
June is a lot of things for different folks. For some, it's Superman month! It was in the June 1938 debut issue of Action Comics that the Man of Tomorrow first appeared. Some Silver Age comic books even say Superman celebrates his birthday on June 10 (the day he landed on Earth), while Clark Kent celebrates his birthday on June 18 (the day the Kents legally adopted him). With that in mind, how about a timeline of his amazing history?Read More
Amy Adams Promises: No Super/Wondy/Lane Love Triangle, and Other Script Details From Batman v Superman
"And then I said 'There's the door, spaceman.'" "Classic!"
It's a rough life, hoping for a greater presence for female characters in superhero movies. So it's not particularly surprising that folks can find potential sooty interiors to any silver lining, namely, that now that Superman and Wonder Woman are an item in comics, it might mean that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will release with a healthy helping of that tired trope of female competition over a man.Read More

Reimagining the Female Superhero: Gail Simone, Amy Reeder, Marguerite Bennett, & More Discuss Comics At Special Edition: NYC
Saturday I attended a panel at Special Edition: NYC, and from what I gathered it was one of the only panels that day that was even nearing maximum capacity. The Carol Corps, various members of the Young Avengers team, and plenty more in addition to myself waited patiently in the ever-growing line for this event. It was pretty much the only reason I went to the convention that day. It seems that many others had the same idea.Read More

Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.
"Am I interested [in a Lois-Superman-Wonder Woman love triangle]? I don’t know. I mean, we’ll see. I hope that I can be involved with a woman on screen where we’re not in a love triangle. That would be fun. Maybe where we team up together and we work as teammates instead of adversaries."—A few days ago Amy Adams was taken a bit aback by a question about Wonder Woman, since she didn't even know the superheroine would be in Man of Steel 2 until the interviewer asked her about it. But turn the subject to a Wonder Woman-Lois-Superman love triangle, and boy, she knows what she wants to say. Props to Adams, because if I were in her shoes I would've given the same negative answer, but there probably would have have been some cursing. Clearly she's classier than I.

Faster than a speeding bullet!
It doesn't take much to annoy Batman. It's kind of his default state. But to annoy Batman into doing what you want? I flunked out of that class three times in journalism school (I didn't go to journalism school).Read More
