Bookmark and Share

There’s so much news to catch up on while I was on my San Diego Comic-Con side journey.  Below you’ll find a lot of articles, some recent, some old, but throughout the day there’ll be posts of trailers and other news that deserve some more focus.  Enjoy!

Around the Blogs:

Salon – The politics of Captain America – An interesting article that’s worth the read.

Bleeding Cool – Ghost Projekt To Be Syfy TV Mini Series – We owe a review of the series, but I was a bit mixed on it.  It’ll be interesting to see what a tv series will be like.

Human Events – Captain America: ‘Nazi Basher’ Now, Why Not ‘Commie Smasher’ Next? – A very interesting article, but Cap in the movies wakes up in modern time, there’s no communists, so makes this difficult.

The Advertiser – N.Y. superhero tour geared to geeks among us – This could be cool.

ICv2 – SyFy Options ‘The Sixth Gun’ – A comic book series that’s grown on me, it’ll be interesting to see how it turns out.

ICv2 – ‘Mockingbird’ Added to Marvel TV Roster – Is TV the new “movie” for comic books?

The New American – When Marvel Comics was Anti-Communist – See how stories flow around conservative blogs?

The Comics Journal – How Censorship Won: The Final Victory of the Comics Code – Some great history here.

Geekweek – Top Cow’s THE DARKNESS Headed To The Big Screen – There’s going to be a few Top Cow comics coming to the big screen.

ArtsBeat – Being Gay in Riverdale: Creator of ‘Archie’ Character Gives the Backstory – A article well worth the read.
