The Lego Batman movie is one of the best Bat-movies (and an announcement)

Today’s short post is inspired by last weeks. I mentioned in last weeks post that “the Lego Batman movie is perfect”, and I stand by that. Not only is it perfect, I’d say it’s one of the best Bat-movies made to date. The movie starts with a terrific bang – a frantic pop that doesn’t slow […]

Some of my favourite videos from Comics Explained (short post)

Hey y’all, just doing a quick post featuring some of my favourite videos from ComicsExplained, a fantastic channel from Rob Jefferson on youtube that goes into the history of characters, publications, and comics in general, along with opinions. It’s become one of my favourite youtube channels, and one I’ve plugged on here a couple times before. So here […]

A Chat With Matt Percy from Cardboard Koinonia

  On today’s episode of One Cross Radio, we are joined by our good friend Matt Percy from Cardboard Koinonia. Matt and his awesome wife Jen started Cardboard Koinonia as a non-profit and church ministry last year, and have been growing steadily and doing really cool things since – like a 24hr gaming marathon to […]

Saban’s recent Power Rangers movie

Today’s short post is brought to you by me wanting to blog while my puppy Luna has her morning nap. What am I wanting to talk about? Saban’s recent Power Rangers movie. I’ll be straight up – I didn’t really care for it. First time I watched up, I was like “cool, this was alright” – […]

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

A long time ago, when the EU was still canon… So Shadows of the Empire is a title that I believe that any child and active Star Wars fan would remember from the mid-90s – heck, it was something even non-active fans would remember. It was, dare I say, the biggest deal in the Expanded […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.
