The Threshold

Spotlight Sunday 12.12.21

Some completely devastating news means that it’s time once again to shine the Spotlight on a legend… Every day is a good day to tell the world how much you love George Perez. Colleen Doran Last week, I had intended to write a Spotlight post about Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons, a telling of the […]

Spotlight Sunday 10.24.21

The release of the third installment of a series of books that seem to be written specifically for me means that there are spoilers ahead for… “Thing is, that’s not what I signed up for. This was supposed to be about revenge.” My mom loved Charles Bronson. Why? I don’t know, really. It certainly wasn’t […]

Nostalgic X-amination

While I will be talking about some comics today, and it is Sunday, this isn’t a Spotlight Sunday post. Instead it’s just something of a casual, meandering walk down memory lane inspired by some recent acquisitions, though in one case it’s a reacquisition. I’ve written before – at length – about how, for various reasons, […]

Do Your Part…For Funsies!

Do Your Part…For Funsies!

Anyone who follows Gail Simone on Twitter knows that she often engages in shenanigans, creating trending topics, sending unwitting nerds into fits of nerdrage, and poisoning the minds of her followers with thoughts about kaiju taint and more besides. After sending the tweet embedded above, I decided to take matters into my own hands and […]

Spotlight Sunday 8.1.21

A lot of alleged comic book fans engaging in a “Tell me you don’t know anything about Superman without saying that you don’t know anything about Superman” challenge online means that there are spoilers ahead for… Yes, it’s Superman–strange visitor from another planet who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of […]

Spotlight Sunday 7.25.21

A new comic from the Mother of Dragons means there are spoilers ahead for… “I’m your mom now, and I’m MAD.” It’s not unusual for people from fields outside of comics to make comics. Prose writers, singers, comedians, and actors have all taken a crack at it over the years. Some fans get angry and […]

Spotlight Sunday 6.6.21

Thinking about getting away to someplace nice, perhaps near a lake, means there are spoilers ahead for… “How gentlemanly, letting me pick my own apocalypse.” One thing I often think about is how when it comes to movies, TV shows, and books I’m very genre-focused. I like what I like, I’ve been around long enough […]

Spotlight Sunday 5.16.21

DC’s release of a 100-page celebration of Asian Heritage Month means there are spoilers ahead for… “Knights of the so-called Brotherhood. Your sophomoric attempts to hypersexualize me and my Asian sisters are pathetic. Be grateful I don’t slay you where you stand.” Let me get the (kind of) bad stuff out of the way first. […]

Spotlight Sunday 4.18.21

An attempt at being topical means that there are spoilers ahead for some recent episodes of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and… “He–he’s gone wild! Like a mad beast!! I’d better get out of here!!” I’ve often mentioned that when I was a kid I didn’t have particularly reliable access to new comics, which […]
