Film director and comic shop owner Kevin Smith has finally finished the comic book series he was contracted to write three years late. Naturally few people likely will care. Naturally the man is a disingenuous yet totally human crook who takes contracts with comic book companies and ignores his obligations in order to make more …

For an extended/updated version of this article, check out Kistler’s web-site. Let’s face it. With the exception of Hawkman ((shudder)), no DC character has suffered a more convoluted history of constant revision than Donna Stacey Hinckley Troy. She’s been Wonder Woman’s sidekick, Wonder Woman’s magical twin, a protege of the Titans of myth, and a …
Stealth gets panned by Ebert in an early review. Sounds putrid. Wish I didn’t still want to see it.
Disney studios announced that it is closing its last studio that strictly does hand-drawn animation. This will take place in in 2006 when the existing projects are brought to completion. The studio announced that due to financial troubles, it will close after 17 years. Some think that this may end the 83 year existence of …
The Japanese have developed a lifelike ‘female’ android. They have been in a race with America on this front ever since Anthony Michael Hall did this 20 years ago. The lifelike android is hot and her name is Sexy O’Sullivan…oh, wait, no it’s Repliee Q1.
Sayour, 35, the stunt coordinator for the show and primary stuntman for “Smallville” star Tom Welling, was badly injured in…a “freak accident” during filming Tuesday morning on location near the township of Langley.
We recently had an escape well added to our home. It’s a 5′ wide window in our basement so that in case of fire we could escape from the basement, and it adds in a ton of light to what was once gloom. Next we’re having the contractor put in ceramic tile in the basement …
Cast Set for ‘Lord of the Rings’ Musical How in the world are they going to tell this story on stage in a couple of hours, especially taking time out for singing?
It was announced recently that James Marsters, known widely for playing the witty vampire Spike on the shows “Buffy” and “Angel”, is joining the cast of SMALLVILLE to play Brainiac, Superman’s biggest arch-enemy next to Lex Luthor. Comic book fans know Brainiac very well in all his different incarnations, usually as the green-skinned killer android …
Payola Shocker: J-Lo Hits, Others Were ‘Bought’ by Sony I remember thinking, back in college, how I was going to keep up with pop music so that I would be different from my dad. When my kids talked about a singer, I’d know who they were talking about. Then, around 1995 or so, popular music …
Penciller Stephen Sadowski says that the inker on JSA #75 changed his art for #75 and he has posted the original pencils to prove it.
This is sort of a personal story. Rather than a news entry or even one of my typical Kistler comedy/parody interviews, think of it more as an op-ed piece. A personal column of sorts. Over a year ago, I got my friends Becca and Lisa into comic books. Since then, I have given them comic …
The V for Vendetta trailer is up. Natalie Portman, back from stinking up the screen in the Star Wars prequels, stars as a young woman taken under the wing of a masked anarchist fighting a fascistic British government. It’s based on an early work by Alan Moore, though oddly enough his name isn’t even mentioned …
Thanks to NEWSARAMA for an great re-introduction to a fave Marvel character from my youth. I bought very few Marvel titles… but Moon Night was one of them (*along with The Avengers and the Daredevil). Novelist Charlie Huston will be taking a shot at writing the character in 2006 along with the artistic talent of …
If this rumour is true, this is brilliant… and will change everything for a season… you can mark me down as believing it as LIKELY TO BE TRUE! The rumour is here. Do not go here if you do not want to be exposed to a MAJOR POSSIBLE SPOILER.
Russia’s Biggest Spammer Brutally Murdered in Apartment
I say it again, the movie Stealth is probably fluff, but it sure does look good! If you’re still doubtful, you can check out the STEALTH COMIC-CON SIZZLE PIECE. But be warned, this is one of those trailers that pretty much gives away the whole movie except for the ending.
This is off-topic, granted, but I’m a writer and every now and then I’m struck by the peculiar usage of words and phrases. That’s why, as soon as I saw this AP article entitled “Poll: Americans Say World War III Likely”, I was baffled by the title. They think World War III is likely? We’re …
This will change your life. Well … not really. But it’s funny. Trust me. Would Kistler lie to you?
Dark Horizon was given a scoop by Warner to reveal the final version of the new Superman movie logo.
