For a few weeks now I have planned to write an article that I titled Why I Read Comic Books, but each time I thought about it I recalled that I had already written a number of posts explaining why I read comic books.

I logged in to Comicbookdb.com to review my wish list and I see this banner (below) informing that this great and free service is going away. This is sad! I have used the service for about two years now to keep track of both my wish list and my collections list. I was able to download two csv files holding both lists. I hope they … Continue reading Oh No! Comicbookdb.com is going away

I recently wrote a post on the change of costume of the CW Supergirl from the traditional skirt and calf-length boots to pants and knee-high boots. Normally I tend to keep my mouth shut and not comment on a woman’s appearance. I do so because it’s not my place to judge and I prefer to stay out of the line of fire. Yet, when it … Continue reading Inside Supergirl’s Pants
Although I am a fanatic about comic books, I am not a big fan of live-action series or movies based on comic books. Yet, when I heard that this season’s Arrowverse-crossover on the CW will be based on the epic comic book miniseries Crisis on Infinite Earths, I decided that I wanted to catch up on episodes of Supergirl, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and etc. … Continue reading Supergirl got Pantsed
