8 Comic Book Cocktails For Your New Year’s Party



Not to toot my own horn even more than one would expect from writing on my own website, but I’m pretty awesome at the field of amateur mixology, which is why the excellent Cathy Leamy took the time a few weeks back to ask what I’d put in a cocktail called the Emma Frost.

So today, in preparation for New Year’s Eve, the Drinkingest Night of All, I’ve written up fully drinkable (well, mostly drinkable) recipes for eight comic book themed cocktails! The Green Lantern! The Red Lantern! The Deadpool! And my personal favorite, The KGBeast! There’s even one in there dedicated to you!

The only one of mine that I didn’t include is The J. Jonah Jameson: Jameson whiskey in a pint glass. No ice. Drink while hating Spider-Man. Cheers!

Six Comics That Should Be In 3D



I’ll be honest with you, folks: Even though I recognize how it’s done well and ties into the themes of stuff like Superman Beyond and Black Dossier, I could live happily without ever seeing a 3D comic or movie again. And I paid full price for Spy Kids 3D.

But if we’re going to have it, then my philosophy is that anything worth doing is worth doing well, so slap on your glasses and get ready for a headache as I count down the six comics that actually SHOULD be in 3D!

A Brief History of Fatman: The Human Flying Saucer



Today at ComicsAlliance, I’m celebrating the fact that I recently finished out my run (with help from Andrew) by throwing the spotlight on a comic that’s even more obscure than my beloved Herbie: Otto Binder and C.C. Beck’s Fatman: The Human Flying Saucer.

If you’ve never read it — and the odds are pretty good that you haven’t –it’s the perfect synthesis of Golden Age insanity and mid-’60s camp, and it’s absolutely amazing, especially when you consider the technical achievement of Beck doing all the art and lettering for 50-page comic every other month. So go read up on the craziness, because I think with this article, I’ve just rounded out my resume by becoming the Internet’s foremost Fatmanologist.

Smallvillains 1×1: The Pilot



I believe it was a philosopher, or possibly a talking car, who once said that you can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been, and to that end, David Uzumeri and I went all the way back to the very first episode of Smallville this week, so that we could better understand Season 10.

The result? Well, now I understand that it’s always been completely insane and full of nonsense. Which I probably could’ve guessed.
