Well look who’s back: Blogger Dave Campbell, formerly of Dave’s Long Box and currently of ABC’s Live From L.A., can now also be referred to as Dave Campbell of The Society for the Advancement of Dave.
From Black Lightning to black thunder: The New York Times profiles Trevor Von Eeden’s “The Original Johnson,” the comics biography of the first black heavyweight champion, which is currently being serialized online at Comicmix.
So apparently Hollywood is interested in making superhero movies now: Who knew?!
I have no idea what this is: But I like imagining Ben Grimm all scrunched up in that little car.
A funny thing happened on the way to The Flash relaunch: This past week’s DC Nation column made me laugh, and stop questioning my sanity (a little). Remember how forced and random it seemed when Wally West and his family disappeared for no reason in the middle of Infinite Crisis? And when Bart Allen suddenly aged to adulthood and starred in a short-lived franchise realaunch that was quickly cancelled and he was then killed off? And how “The Lightning Saga” seemed primed to bring Barry Allen back from the dead, only to return Wally West? And how Wally’s adventures have since seemed to be pretty much just marking time? Well, there’s good, behind the reason for that, as DiDio reveals: The plan was to return Barry Allen in each instance, but plans kept changing behind the scenes. So it’s not so much that DC had no idea what they were doing with the Flash so much as they had no idea when they were going to do it, and what they should do in the mean time.
