The View from the Trailer Park – Those Lips, Those Eyes. ‘Wonder Woman’


Written by: Daniel McDonald

In 1980, a little known, little seen film about a Summer Stock Theater Company in 1951, starring Frank Langella, (DRACULA) Thomas Hulce ,(ANIMAL HOUSE, AMADEUS) and Glynis O’Conner (ODE TO BILLY JOE- what the hell happened to her?) with an interesting title that has stuck with me as clear as a bell for 37 years THOSE LIPS, THOSE EYES opened to better than average press. I saw the little romantic comedy, enjoyed it for what it was, and pretty much forgot about the film, but for some odd reason, not that damn title.

‘Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #3’ Review


You know, I thought things had gotten pretty crazy in the second episode of this totally killer book, but I was off. I was way off. What issue two offered was a little wild… issue three however, is absolutely nutso awesome!

‘Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #2’ Review


The second issue of Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures manages to far surpass the entertainment value of the first. And the first issue was good, need I remind you.

First Appearances: ‘Detective Comics #359’ Review (First Appearance of Batgirl)


Batman comics feel as though they’ve always flip flopped between an incredibly bleak existence and a ham-fisted, over-the-top goof-athon. I enjoy both stretches for the caped crusader, though I’ll openly admit that the darker side of Batman’s existence has always intrigued me more than any other character during any period of time. But that doesn’t mean the light-hearted books stink, or underwhelm. They’ve got a charm all their own, and that’s evident in Detective Comics #359, the very book that introduced the Batgirl to the world of the comic book fan.

‘Elvira’s House of Mystery #1’ Review


As a big Elvira fan, and an enormous fan of genre comics, I can’t begin to make you understand how much I adore Elvira’s House of Mystery. It’s an awesome mix of the two, and while some may deem the book’s content a little watered down, it still manages to entertain (hello, there’s a shout out to the original House of Mystery’s host, Cain – tell me that ain’t awesome!) on a respectable scale.

‘Saga of the Swamp Thing’ #37 (First Appearance of John Constantine) Review


Those that know this stretch of Swamp Thing, or Saga of the Swamp Thing, as it eventually became, know that every issue is special. With Alan Moore handling writing duties you know you’re in for something huge, like, say, altering the entire origin of the Swamp Thing. This particular issue isn’t necessarily special as a result of some epic shift in the Swamp Thing’s existence, it’s special because a very, very important character earns his introduction within these pages. Within the very first few pages, actually.
