Comic Book Review: Super Sons 1

Jay Sandlin

"You don't have to wear an "S" or a bat on your chest to be a hero, son. Just be one when it counts." -Clark Kent, to his son Jonathan Kent aka Superboy. Super Sons #1 was released in February of this year as a part of the DC Rebirth event. I enjoyed reading this comic immensely. Not because it was packed with action, adventure, or scantily clad women. I enjoyed reading it because I'm a dad. It doesn't feel like long ago that I was the one begging my parents to buy me a comic. My parental figure...

Jay Sandlin

"Worship is a volume business."- Technical Boy (New God of Internet) American Gods concluded its first thrilling season just last night on June 18th, 2017. As a historian, finding the many Easter eggs of religious mythology was thrilling to me on so many levels. I have been enamored with American Gods since someone first suggested I watch the program on its home network Starz. I love getting invested in television dramas but we all know it's difficult to commit the time and energy into a new sho...

You're a young kid growing up in the loud and gang-infested city of Compton, CA...or in one of the quiet suburbs of New England...a town in rural Japan or a war-torn city in Iraq. One day a friend, or parent, or whoever shows you a comic book. It reads "MARVEL" in big bold white letters on a red background. Or maybe it reads "DC" and is encircled, like a badge, with a black and white color theme. There are numbers (#18, #85, #201...) on the cover page, but you have no idea what they mean. It doe...

Black Panther is Coming Y'all

Dre Joseph
in Entertainment

There is no other way to say it. This movie is going to be the biggest and most important movie of the superhero genre. Period. This is the first time Marvel Studios will be presenting a film with a nearly all-black cast. I mean, My God? Some of the most winningest Hollywood dramas, based on real-life events, can say that! FACTS. This is an extremely powerful cultural moment for Africa and the entire African diaspora. Why? Because, for centuries, we were represented as either uncivilized slaves,...
