The SandStorm Chronicles including Shadow on the Wall and Prisoners of the Wind by Pavarti K Tyler

Review of Shadow on the Wall from Independent Book Reviews

In general I never repost reviews.  I’m of the opinion that reviews should stand on their own and speak for themselves.  Posting them on my blog is kind of self serving, but you know what?  I’m too excited about this one not to do it   Independent Book Reviews is a great site that doesn’t […]

What makes a superhero? Is it the myth or the man?

Superheros have always existed in a microcosm where the problems of their city don’t have greater ramifications.  The Batman had Gotham, Superman had Metropolis, even Spiderman only had NY, somehow none of the bad guys ever thought to take on, I don’t know, Seattle. In Shadow on the Wall the world is bigger and it’s meaner.  Elih, Turkey (google […]

THE CROW: Superhero Badass! by Joseph Beekman

“If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever.” ~ The Crow Why is The Crow such a bad-ass “superhero”?

They All Came After Superman by 86

How do you select the greatest superhero of all time?  How do you rank them?  Raw ability, super-powers and toughness come first.  Thousands of flashy names and uniforms have come and gone over the last century, so influence and staying power must be considered.  A true hero should be able to transcend the legion of […]

Well, you’re getting close, but if you really want to know what makes him special I think the line you need is from a whole […]

Does Whatever a Spider Can By Robert Chazz Chute

Before a wife, kids and responsibilities came along, I dropped $50 bucks a week on a massive comics collection in the late ’80s. I collected a little of everything. My favorites were Batman and Spider-Man, but Spider-Man was just a little bit better because Peter Parker was a young liberal, poor and, if Wikipedia is […]

Gambit by Candace Brazier

Gambit (a.k.a. Remy LeBeau) was created in 1990 for the Uncanny X-Men and is by far my favorite superhero (other than Batman, of course, but that’s a given). In the X-Men universe he’s a mutant with the ability to charge an item he touches with converted kinetic energy. Being a gambler and a thief, playing […]
