KXLY Interview on Superheroes in Academia

Hey everyone, I was recently by KXLY (Channel 4 in Spokane, WA) about my academic interests in superheroes, and the interview is included below. Enjoy, and have a safe, blessed, and happy new year!  

Comic quote #3: The self-imposed disease

Hey everyone, I pray all is well. Today’s quote comes from 411 Vol. 1. It isn’t technically from the comic, but from the forward to the comic. But due to its powerful and thought-provoking nature, I’ve decided to include it. Also check out my latest recommendation I did earlier, featuring […]

Recommended: 411 Vol. 1 (2003) by Marvel Comics

Hey everyone, I pray all is well. I’ve mentioned before how much I love the dollar bins at the comic stores, and 411 Vol. 1 is definitely one of those comics I probably never would’ve come across otherwise. During the time the U.S. first entered Afghanistan following 9-11, a group […]

7 Marvel Characters I would like to see retold from a Christian worldview 10

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. As I discussed in a post last year, I think how comics depict their characters is one of the most distinctive qualities of the medium. For me it always comes down to the question: Do I care enough about the character? And I […]

Recommended: NYX: No Way Home by Marjorie Liu and Marvel Comics

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. As I mentioned in my last recommendation, my favorite Marvel titles are the ones that focus on people’s lives and their day-to-day experiences. Marjorie Liu’s NYX: No Way HomeĀ fits the bill to a “T”, and from the opening pages I was hooked. It […]

Recommended: District X by Marvel Comics

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. It is with great pleasure that I recommend Marvel Comics‘ District X series: I read the first book a couple of years ago when my boy loaned it to me, and I was able to pick up book 2 at a comic book […]

Recommended: Carnage: Family Feud by Zeb Wells

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. Given that Carnage is one of my favorite villains, I was looking forward to reading about his return in Carnage: Family Feud. The story brings together Spider-Man and Iron-Man, and features a whole lot of Carnage (I know, I couldn’t help myself)! What […]

Recommended: Supreme Power: Hyperion by J. Michael Straczynski

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. Today I want to recommend Supreme Power: Hyperion by J. Michael Straczynski. He also wrote Rising Stars, which is currently my favorite comic. Supreme Power focuses on the other-worldy Hyperion who is being hunted by four superhumans commissioned by the government to bring […]

Creator interview #48: Javier Saltares 3

Hello everyone, We’re getting close to #50, so I’m super-excited! Today we have Javier Saltares. Born March 15th, 1961, Javier is originally from the Bronx, New York. He’s married with three children, and resides in Missouri. And now for the interview…       When did you first get into […]

Recommended: Black Panther (current run) by David Liss

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. Since reading Black Panther: Secret Invasion, and seeing for myself why the vendor I purchased it from at WonderCon told me this was the best of the Secret Invasion (SE) spin-offs, I became hooked on Marvel‘sĀ Black Panther. And since then, it has been […]
