So apparently Spock's full-green-blooded Vulcan father Sarek will be joining the cast of Star Trek Discovery, played by James Frain (Gotham, Orphan Black). And I'm sure Frain is a fine actor (and a dead ringer for a young Mark Lenard), but I do love his clearly written by him imdb bio: "James Frain is one of Hollywood's most versatile and respected actors who has a...

This week is a mish-mash featuring my reactions and thoughts to some of my fellow ComicMix columnists and two reader’s thoughts on my column from last week.
In response to my column last week, which I wrote while watching the New York Giants/Green Bay Packers wild card playoff game, Mark Belktron wrote:
Johnny O (the O is for Ostrander) talked about the King, a.k.a. Jack Kirby, yesterday, and his first encounter with the “mild-mannered” genius of the four-color page. Hey, John, did you read the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, by Michael Chabon? If not, you really must! In fact, as I once mentioned long ago and far away (but not in another galaxy – at least, I think not), anyone who claims to be a comics fan must – im-not-so-ho, of course – read this, uh, amazing semi-fictionalized and semi-biographical novel of the birth »

Even all these months after its release, Captain America: Civil War still finds itself in the news every now and then. Granted, a lot of the focus has shifted away from Marvel’s massive threequel and towards some of their upcoming efforts like Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War, but Joe and Anthony Russo’s tremendously successful blockbuster is still on the minds of many.
Helping keep it there now is some brand new concept art, which has surfaced on the official website of artist Christian Cordella. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, he’s a notable costume concept artist who’s worked on projects like Star Trek: Beyond, Jurassic World and The Jungle Book. He’s also been hired to do work on some of Marvel’s upcoming efforts »

Movie sequels are big business for Hollywood. Many fans are getting burnt-out on sequels, especially since so many of them are unnecessary. Still, let’s not forget that when they’re done right, sequels can be great. Here are a dozen of the greatest sequels ever made.
12. Star Trek 2: The Wrath Of Khan (1982): Still the best of all the Star Trek films, this excellent sequel corrected everything that went wrong with its disappointing predecessor, Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The action, the humor and the character interactions were all excellent. The comparisons to Moby Dick gave it a literary flavor, and Ricardo Montalban was fantastic as the villain, Khan Noonien Singh. The death of Spock was a surprise to long-time fans, even if it didn’t last. This film made the Trek film franchise fun and set the standard for the future films.

At 260 lbs., Cheryl Shaw knew she needed to make a change, but lacked motivation. Worst of all, she could tell that her bad habits were hurting her teenage daughter Tessa, who weighed around 190 lbs. despite being just 4’11”.
“Our eating was completely out of control,” Cheryl, 52, tells People. “My daughter worried about me because at that point I had given up. I work 12 hours, so I get home at night and I’m eating garbage. I’m not cooking a meal. I’m eating McDonald’s at ten o’clock at night.”
“I really fell into bad habits, and it kept »

David Gerrold, the writer best known for his script for the Star Trek episode “The Trouble With Tribbles”, for creating the Sleestak race on the TV series Land of the Lost, and for his novelette “The Martian Child”, which won both Hugo and Nebula awards and was adapted into a 2007 film, contributes a guest column about the trainwreck that was Marvelous Nerd Year’s Eve. For more, read the coverage at The Beat.
I was an invited guest at the “Marvelous Nerd Year’s Eve” Comic-Con held in Dallas over New Year’s weekend.
Apparently, it was a disaster of biblical proportions. Not just dogs and cats living together, but suing each other for palimony and custody of the kittens.
The convention organizers over-promised, under-budgeted, over-extended, under-performed, and committed what I consider acts of “criminal incompetence.”
Why do I use the adjective “criminal?”
Because people were hurt. Not just by the incompetence, »
