Comics Corner: Deadman #1, The Walking Dead #173, The Gravediggers Union #1, Clue #5, Paper Girls #17, Red Sonja #10

This week on Comics Corner, we have a look at Deadman #1 from DC Comics, with details on a glow-in-the-dark cover of this issue, and we also take a look at The Walking Dead #173, Gravediggers Union #1 plus six preview pages, two covers for Clue #5, Extremity #8, Paper Girls #17, and Red Sonja #10.

Deadman #1: "“Journey into Death” part one! When we last left Deadman, the true story had barely begun! Deadman’s death was unsolved, and his fate was intertwined with that of his parents and siblings. Even the Dark Night Detective couldn’t solve the mysteries of Boston Brand’s fantastic secrets! Now, Batman is back, confronting Deadman about who was really behind his death. Was Boston Brand’s assassination a test for the League of Assassins? Why does Batman think Ra’s al Ghul was involved? And why does Deadman need the help of Zatanna, Phantom Stranger, Dr. Fate and the Spectre to defend Nanda Parbat?

Netflix's Bright: Will Smith And Joel Edgerton Discuss Playing A Racist Cop & An Orc Cop

The upcoming movie Bright initially slipped past my nerd radar, I knew it was a Netflix film, but I didn’t know much more than that. I must say I am now quite excited for this film. To me, the film gives off an essence of the classic cop movie, Colors, starring Robert Duvall and Sean Penn, only in a much different setting. How race, bigotry and the supernatural world of orcs, fairies and elves meld together with us humans is something I am very interested in seeing.

Joel Edgerton plays Nick Jakoby, a cop, who is also an orc. Will Smith’s Daryl Ward is another officer that is forced to team up with Edgerton’s Jakoby on the hunt for a powerful weapon. The thing is Will Smith’s character doesn’t take too kindly to orcs, and certainly doesn’t want one for a partner. Both Smith

Tuesday, April 25th boasts an array of diverse Blu-ray and DVD offerings with a great assortment titles both new and old.

Shout Select Fights Russians, Crips, and Bloods With ‘Red Dawn’ and ‘Colors’

We take a look at new Blu-rays of two ’80s classics.

Shout! Factory’s relatively young collectors label, Shout Select, is something of an odd duck. This is less of a criticism than an observation as their releases so far bear no real discernible through line. We’ve gotten well-deserved Blu-rays of eagerly awaited ’80s classics like To Live and Die in La, Road House, and Midnight Run, but the label has also released/announced titles like Death of a Salesman, The Chinese Connection, and Simon Pegg’s forgettable 2012 film, A Fantastic Fear of Everything. So yeah, there’s something of an odd inconsistency across the catalog.

For now though we’re here to discuss their latest releases, two ’80s films of varying acclaim and renown — John MiliusRed Dawn and Dennis Hopper’s Colors.

Comic Book Review: Action Comics #975 Supersized Anniversary Issue

Action Comics is now only 25 issues away from reaching the milestone of issue number 1000! This week issue 275 is a supersized anniversary issue that finally reveals the identity of the mysterious Clark Kent, something that due to how long it’s been since he was introduced (almost a year) has at times frustrated me. Before going any further let me give a Spolier warning if you want to find out for yourself (although chances are that the internet has probably already spoiled it for you by accident). In part one of the “Superman Reborn” storyline Clark Kent tried to marry Lois Lane and by the end kidnapped Jonathan out of what seemed was jealously. Now Lois and Clark were on the hunt for this Clark and their Son.

The issue has the couple raiding Clark’s apartment and finding absolutely nothing but a clean place but a kitchen and refrigerator full of candy.

Cinema St. Louis’ Classic French Film Festival March 10th -26th at Webster University

The Ninth Annual Robert Classic French Film Festival — co-presented by Cinema St. Louis and the Webster University Film Series — celebrates St. Louis’ Gallic heritage and France’s cinematic legacy. The featured films span the decades from the 1920s through the mid-1990s, offering a revealing overview of French cinema.

The fest is annually highlighted by significant restorations, which this year includes films by two New Wave masters: Jacques Rivette’s first feature, “Paris Belongs to Us,” and François Truffaut’s cinephilic love letter, “Day for Night.” The fest also provides one of the few opportunities available in St. Louis to see films projected the old-school, time-honored way, with both Alain Resnais’ “Last Year at Marienbad” and Robert Bresson’s “Au hasard Balthazar” screening from 35mm prints. Even more traditional, we also offer a silent film with live music, and audiences are sure to delight in the Poor People of Paris

Comic Book Review: Ghost Rider #1

Variant Cover Art by Tradd Moore & Val Staples (Marvel Comics)

With Marvel’s comic booking being all over the place these days, it’s hard for me to get excited for any of their titles. “Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider” happened to be one of the few that I could not wait to pick up mainly because I personally love the idea of a haunted car as well as a Hispanic hero/anti-hero. The book does a decent job at re-introducing us to the character without going too much into detail, although it does give us a pretty detailed look at Robbie’s relationship with Gabe. Which to me is done to show you how Robbie is able to stay balanced, Gabe representing the good and his Uncle Eli’s spirit the bad. I enjoyed the small bit where Ghost Rider saves the family who apparently already know him as “La

Exclusive: Dolly Parton Reflects on 50 Years in Showbiz: 'It Makes You Feel Proud' and 'Old'
Dolly Parton is gearing up for another Golden anniversary.

Less than one year after celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary with husband Carl Dean, Parton will celebrate the 50th anniversary of her debut album, Hello, I'm Dolly, in February. To help her get ready for the occasion, Et caught up with the living legend in Nashville on Thursday to reflect on her five decades in the spotlight.

"It makes you feel proud. It makes you feel old, but it makes you feel like you might have done something good in your life," the 70-year-old superstar said. "Just being a part of country music after all these years, I feel like I've been here a long time."

It's no surprise that Parton has achieved such massive career longevity. During her first Et sit-down in 1982, the "Jolene" singer told us: "I will never retire, I like the work!"

Best TV to Watch in November: Colbert's Election 2016, Dolly's Christmas and More
Welcome to a somewhat light month for traditional new TV programming – all the better to pay attention to the noteworthy broadcasts emerging from more unlikely sources. (There are a few interesting, big-name shows dropping on Netflix and Amazon this month as well, of course – check our Best Things to Stream feature tomorrow for those.) Sure, there's prestige-lite TV like Showtime's temporally tweaked soap opera The Affair, returning for its third season.

This week begins New York Comic Con! And your faithful comic book reviewer will be attending and looking to get as many scoops, interviews and photos possible! How does DC Comics look going into this week’s releases and Comic Con line up? Let’s take a look!

Action Comics #964

Story: Dan Jurgens Art: Patrick Zircher, Tomeu Morey

Review: So this is supposed to bring things back to the “status quo” for Superman. Ummm…I guess? Essentially Pre-Flash Point Supes brings current mystery “normal” Clark Kent the fortress of solitude. There Superman begins to inspect Clark to see just how the heck this is all possible. The final conclusion seems to be that indeed this is legit Clark Kent and The Superman of New 52 was impersonating as Clark to protect him from a dangerous organization. Now of course none of this

DC Comics brings us a rebirthed Trinity story line starring the big three of the DC Universe-Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman! Although this will be unlike any other “meeting” story between these icons that we’ve seen before. This week also brings us a few stellar books in the Rebirth line up along with solo Raven series (for all you Teen Titans fans).

Aquaman #7

Review: Arthur is still an outlaw according to the Us, he has to contend with all the problems Atlantis is currently facing while trying to discover who is framing his nation for the attacks on the surface world (Hint hint, it’s Nemo now run by Black Manta). All in all it’s safe to say it isn’t easy being King. I think that’s the

Comic Book Reviews: DC Round Up Week 09-14-2016

DC is settling into its new focused style of content storytelling, and producing some fantastic stories thanks to the new approach. While mostly everything has been a hit, there have been a few snags as well. One issue I keep having is trying to figure out how it all “fits” together in a bigger picture. Some books seem closer connected others; some appear not connected all to the larger DC Universe. This might not be a problem for most, it can be a little jarring for me, when I’m reading Batgirl is running around Japan in her book, but is also hanging out with Huntress and Black Canary in the Birds of Prey series, while appearing in Nightwing and referencing her time currently in Japan, but Black Canary appears in Green Arrow without any indication she’s even been to Gotham or around Batgirl.

Comic Book Review: All-star Batman #1

Publisher: DC Comics

Writer: Scott Snyder

Artwork: John Romita Jr.

Inks: Danny Miki

Colors: Dean White

One of the best things to come out of the New 52 was Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo on Batman. At the end of the arc “End Game,” we knew that there was a change in the creative team coming. We soon found out it was none other than Tom King and David Finch who have been doing a great job so far. Now armed with John Romita Jr. and Jock on art, Scott Snyder is back on All-star Batman to give us those stories he wants to tell using specific characters in mind. Looks like we are starting with Batman and Harvey Dent, Two-Face.

This issue kicks off with a bang. Given the distance traveled (mentioned at the top of the page) I am going to guess that the Diner that this issue

Comic Book Reviews: DC Round Up Week 08-03-2016

When I first started writing reviews for Lrm I stated I would stick with all the DC Rebirth Issues until at least issue 6 before considering any to drop. So far, I’ve pleasantly been surprised by my complete interest in All the Rebirth Titles thus far! We are approaching issue 4 for most of the newly revamped series, with still many more trickling in that show promise. As the first “wave” of books get closer to issue 6, I’ll do a quick rundown on those series and try to help new readers choose which books might be best for them. Until then, be sure to sound off in the comments on how you’re liking (or disliking) the DC Rebirth!

Comic Book Reviews: DC Round-up Week 07-27-2016

DC’s Rebirth is going strong, as the company gives us some fantastic books with great creative teams. Geoff Johns begin given more power and helping craft this road for the company was definitely the smart choice here. So with all the praise being given, there are a few areas I’d like to see some improvement. The most important is being “continuity”. Part of what brought about this change was getting the characters back to basics, back to remnants of their pre-new52 personas which so many readers were drawn too. That’s great, and I think it’s starting to show through the writers the company has on each title (thus far). However, there are some aspects that make feel like these books exist in their own self-contained worlds, which is fine, but then at other points some series try to reference other series,

Review: So for some reason, even though Arthur painfully has put together this Atlantean Embassy, even though he’s saved the world (including America) countless times and has proven himself a hero, even though he is a Us Citizen, And even though Black Manta is also an American and blatantly guilty over the explosion at the Atlantean Embassy, we are to believe that everyone is like “well F*!

Fcbd: Captain America #1

Story: Nick Spencer, Dan Slott Art: Jesus Saiz, Javier Garron

Review: This was a fun little lead up to Captain America: Steve Rogers #1. It doesn’t really show anything about the Hydra/Cap storyline, more or less it’s a standard Captain America taking down the bad Hydra thugs story. There is a follow up with Sam Wilson Cap teaming up with the new Falcon as well. Neither is really something that’s stand alone as both are tie-ins to their own respective series. I was kind of hoping for something of a Hydra/Cap teaser here,
