Gotham By Midnight with Kate (and Dan)

D: Yeesh… K: What’s up, Slim? You’re looking a bit whiter than usual. What’s the matter, your Docker pants not as wrinkle-free as you like them to be? ::snicker:: D: WhaHUH? Wrinkled pants? Ah, CRAP.

LEGENDS: THE COLLECTION

DC Comics 1993   Here at Crimespree Magazine, we have an on-again, off-again feature called “The Bargain Bin.” The Bargain Bin lets us go on about fun stuff that you may find at your local used bookstore, or even the checkout line at Target. Or… or even a newly added cartoon on the Netflix machine. You get the idea: Fun stuff, cheap. SO. This past Wednesday, I was wandering the shelves at the Local Comic Shop (LCS) and started to get that ITCH. No, not that itch. A topical took care of that. The itch I’m talking about happens when the new books just don’t do it for you that week, and you start prowling around for the PERFECT THING TO BUY. I...

Will Smith to head up DC’s SUICIDE SQUAD

BURBANK, Calif. – An all-star roster of actors has joined Warner Bros.

Icon/Marvel Comics Paper Films 2014     DISCLAIMER: If you’re not in the mood for action cranked up to “eleven,” then this ain’t the book for you.

THOR #1 & 2 with Kate (and Dan)

::Dan is sitting at the kitchen table with a laptop computer open in front of him. He is wildly tapping at the keyboard and muttering under his breath. :: K: Take it easy on the new laptop, Ace. We just got that and let’s try not to break it in the first 24 hours. We haven’t even told Twitter or Facebook about the new machine. If it isn’t posted on Social Media, it never happened. It’s true. I read it on LinkedIn. D: ::rapidly hits the enter key:: WHY WON’T THIS THING WORK FOR ME?!? I’ve been pushing all of the buttons and it won’t turn on! I want to surf the inter-webs, but I’m being PC-blocked! K: ::looks at dark monitor:: Well, first...
