A few months bac, I was doing my comics order and I decided to take a chance on an indie book called Princeless that looked like a pretty interesting take on the growing subgenre of Fairy Tale Parodies Where The Princess Is The One Who Does The Saving. It looked like it might be fun and the cover art was pretty solid, so I figured at worst, I’d be out three bucks and feel better for having given it a shot.
But as it turns out, Princeless isn’t just good, it’s great. It’s a gamble that paid off for me, and today at ComicsAlliance, I tell you why.
Oh Batman, will you ever find love? If it’s not a slightly amoral cat burglar or the daughter of an international eco-terrorist, it is, as Bob Haney and Jim Aparo so heartbreakingly chronicled, a business rival who shacks up with a hundred year-old robot in an effort to destroy your company.

While some people opted for turkey and togetherness, I spent this Thanksgiving writing up a column on the Scooby-Doo franchise as a bastion of secular humanism and why the presence of the supernatural cannot possibly work in the universe of the show. I know, it’s crazy: Me? Getting all super-obsessive over a cartoon for children? Believe it or not!
I think it’s been made pretty clear over the past few years that my boss hates me and wants me to suffer, but never has it been more apparent than today, when ComicsAlliance sent me to review Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part One. So today, please enjoy the fruits of my misery with an extensive review of this horrible movie that’s going to make a billion dollars, complete with seventeen footnotes.
This week at ComicsAlliance, we’re gearing up for this week’s holiday, so I tried my best to find something at least mildly Thanksgiving-themed. Unfortunately, what I ended up with was a depressingly racist artifact of the 50s about Batman traveling through time. So, uh…
