Multiversity 101: Double Down

By | Jan 10, 2012 | Longform

It finally happened. Marvel is number one again (as I predicted!) in month four of the DCnU, as Marvel took the number one spot for both the Overall Units and Overall Dollars rankings with DC going back to being the number two…for at least this month. What’s the biggest reason for this happening? Well, it’s […]

Multiversity 101: Does Marvel Hate Canada?!

By | Oct 25, 2011 | Longform

Of course not. Nobody hates Canada. However, with the recent announcement of Alpha Flight’s expansion from being an eight issue mini-series and then quickly rescinding that very idea, moving it back to being that same eight issue mini due to a lack of sales, some may think so. Especially when you factor in Newsarama’s assertion […]

Multiversity 101: Vicarious Visions

By | Sep 19, 2011 | Longform

This past week, comic fans were up in arms about a change a creator made to a beloved character (I know, that’s NEVER happened before, but these are exciting times). All cattiness aside, this situation actually was fairly unique at least as far as I’ve been aware of things as a comic fan/pseudo-“journalist”: in the […]

By | Aug 22, 2011 | Longform

It’s moving season time again! These next few weeks are a busy time for many of us as whether we are heading back to school or, like me, running out our leases and moving into new places to live (yeah, maybe I’m aging myself with that statement but I think the average age of most […]

Multiversity 101: How Alan Moore Saved Comics

By | Jun 27, 2011 | Longform

Pretty soon, everyone can own Action Comics #1 and Uncanny X-Men #1. These collectors items, previously likely to set you back somewhere between thousands and millions of dollars can be acquired for a cool $3.99. Not bad for a legendary collectors item. Except they aren’t the genuine article. The former is a renumbering of the […]

Multiversity 101: The Art of the False Start

By | Jun 20, 2011 | Longform

The Twelve. All-Star Batman and Robin. Daredevil: The Target. Image United. Four different books from three different companies starring wildly different characters. What do they have in common? Well, that would be the fact that their next issue is now horribly and unforgivably late, and given the caliber of the creators working on them, it […]

Multiversity 101: Shaking off the Dirt

By | Jun 6, 2011 | Longform

In mainstream comics, the concept of a team book is almost as old as the medium itself. The advent of the super hero team was essentially an excuse to get the biggest of the big all in one book together, however if you look at Marvel’s premiere super hero team The Avengers, you find that […]
