Lethally Blonde Productions (186)

WTF!? I believe were my first thoughts when I heard about the new gender-bending cartoon that features a superheroine whose secret identity has a penis. The Hub has recently revealed its new superhero cartoon sensation in the form of SheZow!

Whoever said, "The truth shall set you free," obviously didn't tell Paula Deen to never, ever say the N-word (Even the term "the N-word makes my skin crawl!) and then admit to it at a later date. When I was little my mom told me to never, ever use the N-word. Of course, she also told me to watch my money around black people. What can I tell you? Her grandparents were from Kentucky.

When I talked to my mom last week, I told her I hoped to see Man of Steel this weekend. She said, "You always did love Superman." And, I did. And, I do. It's hard to believe the last son of Krypton is 75. Harder still to believe the movie that made me fall in love with him is 30 odd years old.

GLBTQ - MFTWe have gays in the military, gays wanting to get married . . . do we really need gays in comics? Of course, we do!

June is national Gay Pride Month, so happy pride, EVERYONE. And, let's take a look at the GLBTQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered, and Queer, phew!) situation in comic books. Comic books have historically reflected current trends, politics, and issues. Sometimes to serve the story, sometimes to serve a purpose, and a lot of times simply for the fanfare. It makes sense that there is a large faction of GLBTQ comic fans. An outsider form of entertainment for an outsider subculture? The plight of the mutants in The X-Men forced to painfully co-exist in a society that shuns, if not fears and hates, them is an all too identifiable situation. When John Byrne introduced Northstar of Alpha Flight, he always intended him to be gay. Of course, things were different back then, and they had to pussyfoot around the issue. It wasn't until Issue #107 of Alpha Flight under a different writer that Northstar would scream and shout and let it all out that not only was he a mutant, he was homosexual (AND Canadian!). To Marvel Comics' discredit, Northstar was quickly ushered back into the closet after much negative feedback. It wasn't until years later, when gay rights become white hot and super trendy, that Marvel would reintroduce Northstar into their best-selling X-Men comic, give him a boyfriend, and a publicity-filled wedding. Too little, too late? Nah, it's better than nothing.

Judas MFTLet's face it. DC Comics' animated features kick major booty! (Wonder Woman was awesome! We need a Cheetah sequel, though!)  So, will the legendary "Judas Contract" storyline from Marv Wolfman and George Perez's New Teen Titans run be the next DC animated movie? If Jarrid Steel has anything to say about it.

Kris Jenner MFTAfter the success of 15 Minutes: Honey Boo Boo, artist/writer Michael Fitzgerald Troy is teaming up with Bluewater Productions again for his latest comic book, 15 Minutes: Kris Jenner.  Troy's comic book is a tongue-in-cheek, satirical view of everyone's favorite/least favorite self-proclaimed "Momager" and matriarch of the infamous Kardashian Dynasty. The comic is part of Bluewater's 15 Minutes series, which focuses on reality TV celebrities.


CARRIEKELLY MFT*Please note that this article is an opinion-editorial.

DC continues its very public nervous breakdown by killing popular Robin and biological Bat son Damian and replacing him with legendary female Robin replacement Carrie Kelly from Frank Miller's legendary comic book game changer The Dark Knight Returns. It hasn't officially happened, but Kelly is in Robin garb on the surprise foldout of the cover of Batman and Robin #19. Not that anything is a surprise in the day and age of the all knowing internet.

That said, there may be a few spoilers here.

X-Titanscolor MFTI was going through some art and came across this piece I did referencing one of my all-time favorite fanboy events from the Marvel/DC Crossover, teaming up Marvel's Uncanny X-Men with DC's New Teen Titans. They were originally published in 1982, a time at which both titles were the best selling for their respective companies.

Bates Motel MFT"We all go a little mad sometimes." - Norman Bates

Ain't that the truth?  I was so mad when I heard they were making a show called Bates Motel.  I figured it was A&E jumping on the success train of hour-long horror dramas ignited by Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story, as Hollywood is cannibalistic. If a fresh idea is successful, they must suck dry the last ire of moisture from the creative marrow.  Although over-the-top and eye roll worthy at times, Fox's The Following is a welcome addition to the horror trend tip. It's a knock off of Silence of the Lambs meets Sister Wives, but intriguing nonetheless. So, I figured, what the heck?  I'll give Bates Motel a shot.  It's a great concept.  If they do it right, it could be killer!


WICKED MFTSpoilers a spoilin'.

"What's the matter, Glinda? Out of bubbles?" The verbal b---h slap delivered to Glinda the Good from Evandora the not so good has to go down in the history of best catty lines ever!

As an out and proud gay man, I am contractually obligated to worship The Wizard of Oz, so it would stand to reason that I would in turn like Oz The Great and Powerful. Well, I didn't like Oz The Great and Powerful- I LOVED IT!!! I remember seeing the posters months ago. Sam Raimi? Oz? Sign me up!
