[ STOP SLAPPING MY STICK
Can someone please explain to me how the Durlan's brush their teeth? Robert Venditti hasn't got a clue. Martin Coccollo couldn't give a toss. And as for those sods over at DC Comics, well, they're too busy selling toothpaste to toothless pensioners in May, 2014, to careless! The flipping skin flints!

WHY 'THE FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE' MUSICAL IS BOUND FOR GLORY

By David Lee Andrews   Posted at  08:00   NEWS
Fortress of Solitude by Jonathan Lethem
In 2003, novelist Jonathan Lethem perfectly captured the gritty reality of life in 1970s Brooklyn, when young men were forced to escape the hardship of daily life by pouring themselves into comic books. Over a decade later, the story "Fortress of Solitude" is capturing hearts again, this time as a musical. With the Dallas Morning News praising its Texas premiere as a memorable display of musical talent, the stage version of "Fortress" delivers a heavy punch of nostalgia, strong enough to make any attendee long for the good ol' days of friendship and comic books. However, the musical also reminds theatergoers that, in many ways, those days weren't as wonderful as we like to pretend.

By David Lee Andrews   Posted at  08:00   SHERLOCK HOLMES
The House of Fear Cover At the end of my street there is a house full of malice, dread, mania, and fear. Well, that's what the people living inside called themselves, anyway. But if I was in their shoes, I'd name myself after the characters seen in this 69 minute movie made in 1945. It was directed by Roy William Neill; and Starred: Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce, with Aubrey Mather.

[ ONE SQUID FOE THIS?
Now I know for a fact Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul can pen a pretty decent tale over on 'The Flash'. But does that necessarily mean they can do the said-same thing to a certain Dark Knight as well? Let's see, shall we? Let's see if DC Comic's have made a very good creative decision, in May, 2014.
