Tales of Marvel, Part III – Marvelman becomes Miracleman, Ms. Marvel becomes Captain Marvel and Captain marvel becomes Shazam! – Steve Lambert

Last time, we learned about the revival of the superhero genre of comics in the mid 1950s (the silver age of superhero comic books).  We learned about the British rip-off of Fawcett’s Captain Marvel, Marvelman (written by Mick Anglo and published by L. Miller & Son).  We learned about how Fawcett’s copyright of Captain Marvel […]

Being Gracious (short post)

Unrelatedly, as I write this, the Zeo Rangers just teamed up with Alien Rangers (the first time Power Rangers could adapt the traditional team up from the Sentai) to fight a gear and a purse monster. Good ol tuesday morning’s on the bus. Onto the post proper. My really cool cousin posted the scripture up-top the other […]

Let’s Talk About – Disney buying Fox with Steve

  Kudo’s to China Daily for that image. We’re back with Steve Lambert talking about the formerly breaking news of Walt Disney buying Fox Studios (something that, months later, some surprisingly haven’t heard). Steve and I look at why this deal excites us as comic book fans, some of the potential downsides, and how this […]

Boom Studio’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

GO GO POWER RANGERS (Do do doooo dooo doooo)   Today’s short post is brought to you by…me, being sick, and wanting to talk about an excellent comic. Let’s hop to it, shall we? So in 2016 (and today) I was feeling nostalgic and started looking up stuff about Mighty Morphin Power Rangers – the […]

Tales of Marvel, Part II – Marvelman, Captain Miracle, Mar-Vell, and the return of the original Captain Marvel – Steve Lambert

    Last time, we learned the origins and down fall of the most popular superhero of the 1940s, Captain Marvel, published by Fawcett Comics.  We learned about the lawsuit that National Comics (DC before they were DC) filed against Fawcett, accusing them of ripping off Superman.  And we saw what eventually brought Captain Marvel […]

Let’s try to Talk About – Batman with Mike Naulls

  On today’s episode of One Cross Radio, we are joined by longtime friend and film-maker Mike Naulls and we’re looking at Batman! Or I should say trying to. As we try to focus on Batman in film, we get sidetracked with thoughts on the upcoming Solo and (then upcoming) Black Panther, various actors, and go […]

The plug filled 100TH POST!!

My mind is blown that I have reached 100 posts! This is crazy to me, and from the bottom of my heart I want to thank everyone who has given content, inspired, read, shared, and supported this and the websites 2099 One Cross St was born from. We may not have the hugest audience, but […]

Tales of Marvel, Part 1 – Shazam! & Captain Marvel (& Superman) – Steve Lambert

Next year there are two superhero movies coming out that share an incredible history that spans the entire history of the comics industry.  If you go see these movies, the shared history won’t be apparent.  In fact, they will probably be nothing alike.  The movies won’t cross over or reference each other in any way. […]

Quick Post – a video & a plug

Hey y’all! Just wanted to do a quick post sharing two things! The first is my good friend Melissa Miller’s website. Melissa is a friend of mine from my Touchstone Youth Centre days, is a practicing Christian, wife to an awesome dude named Jason (who does some awesome kit/toy-model work you can see here on his instagram), and […]

Let’s Talk About – The Star Wars Prequels with Steve

  Much like the internet, we’re back to the Star Wars Prequels! Today’s episode revisits those muchly disappointing (but meme-creating-machines) films with our dear friend Pastor Steve Lambert. We look at what we think went wrong, what possibly went right, the Clone Wars CGI show, and if they are salvageable or if they should be remade. Hope […]
