With its release just around the corner, here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming DCEU Aquaman movie.
Superhero stories are loaded with Christ allegory. From Batman to Spider-Man to Wolverine, we’re almost always bound to see a hero question their impact on the people and outstretch their arms in a somber wide shot when they’re at their lowest. It makes sense. For those who grew up in a religious household, most of […]
I first remember seeing the work of Bernie Wrightson in Swamp Thing #7 which guest-starred Batman, but this wasn’t a Batman I was used to seeing as a kid.
