WRONGEST THERE IS!!!

 

’66 AND COUNTING

Recently I’ve been reading the Batman ’66 set of graphic novels. If you haven’t read them then you really need to do yourself a favor and read them as soon as possible.

They’re superb! Absolutely superb!

 

SUPERGIRL – ALL-THING

I think my wife and daughters will like this. I’m not sure I won’t.

 

MAN WITHOUT FEAR

I think this has the potential to be every bit as good as Gotham. I look forward to it.

 

SOME OF THE BEST

36 of the Best Roleplaying Games

“I love video games, but you can’t beat the magic in the personal interaction around a table.” — Filamena Young


Just as there really is no such thing as a best book or movie, there is no best roleplaying game, or even best in a particular category. But if you’re looking for something new to try, this selection of games will help. The games were selected to cover a wide spectrum of game mechanics, settings, and play styles. Some are well known, others relatively obscure. Some are licensed from video games, movies, TV shows, or books. Some are free for download, and several provide free quickstart PDFs.

THE “EYE” OF SUPERGIRL

CBS, huh?

Well, they shouldn’t screw that up too badly, should they?

Actually I hope the show does very well. It’s the CBS part that bothers me…

DC Comics’ ‘Supergirl’ headed to CBS

Corrections and clarifications: An earlier version of this post listed the wrong studio for ABC’s upcoming Agent Carter.

The only major network without a comics-inspired drama now has one.

CBS has closed a deal for Supergirl, a series adaptation the superhuman DC Comics character, cousin of Superman, at age 24. Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) is producing for Warner Bros. Television with Ali Adler, who worked on Glee, The New Normal and Berlant’s short-lived 2010 ABC superhero series, No Ordinary Family.

The network will produce a pilot for the series, which has not yet been cast, and is very likely–though not guaranteed–to order additional episodes. If it does, the show is expected to join the lineup next season. If not, CBS will pay a significant penalty…
