RIP Adam West: Thanks For Making My Childhood Awesome: Adam West’s portrayal of Batman helped shape my childhood. I know I’m not alone. Adam West passed away today at the age of 88.

Book Review: The Official DC Super Hero Joke Book: Downtown Bookworks humorous collection will appeal to DC Comics fans of all generations.

Book Review: DC Super Heroes: The Big Book of Girl Power–new children’s book celebrates the women of DC Comics The female superheroes of DC Comics have been front and center in a big way lately: Wonder Woman is now a U.N. Ambassador, and her new movie (featuring Gal Gadot) debuts next year. Supergirl is flying […]

Why The World Still Needs Superman, perhaps more than ever before. When it was announced there was going to be yet another Superman movie, public response was muted.
