I Am DB Cooper Claims to ID the Notorious Skyjacker

Andor Does Little to Revive the Star Wars Franchise

Bullet Proof’s White-Knuckle Action Cures the Summertime Blues

Life After Superheroes: Does Zack Snyder Need a Career Reboot?

Per Matt Tweaking comics canon for the big screen can be a tricky business. Whenever filmmakers alter beloved storylines by many, the fanboys and fangirls who grew up with those characters will generally speak out, while holding nothing back. They… Continue Reading →

Easter Eggs Prep Pennyworth for a Comics-Based Storyline

Per Matt I suppose it takes a lot of looking inward, before you can finally let go of the past. Moving toward the future, Season 2 of Pennyworth did a whole lot of that. From the season premiere, the EPIX… Continue Reading →
