The Redemption of Tim Drake

The most misused character of the DC’s New 52 was Tim Drake. He went from being a worthy successor to the Bat Cowl, and having his own series, to being kind of a side note in the Teen Titans comics. This has all changed for the better in two different comics that came out last week. We have Teens Titans #23 and Batman: Detective Comics #939. Both were released on August 24th. Let’s start with Teen Titans #23.

DC’s Rebirth means hope

In September of 2011 DC comics editorial decided to re-vamp their comic line following the event of the Flashpoint mini-series. The timeline was ripped apart due to Barry Allen, The Flash going back in time and saving his mother. Hence the system wide re-boot. Heroes that we had grown up with were changed, or deleted all together. These heroes were grittier and darker than what we had known before. Superman even spent months with a t-shirt and jeans as a uniform. Oh yeah, he had also lost his powers as well. We also had Jim Gordon masquerading as Batman in a robotic bunny looking suit. Needless to say these changes rubbed longtime comic collectors the wrong way.

messagesSo I was looking at SUPERHEROSTUFF.COM the other day and was shopping for some Batman t-shirts since I am lacking and these 3 gems caught my eye.

Batman yellow circleFirst, I have always loved Batman going back to the reruns of the Batman “66 series and of course the Super Friends and The New Adventures of Batman, produced by Filmation.  So I picked the Batman Yellow Circle Classic Logo T-Shirt. I love how it is the old school comic and cartoon look with the blue and grey. This classic look, just screamed out to my childhood. More

Tales From The Geek Side- The Beginning.

tftgsWow, a lot has happened since the site was launched August 14th, 2012. Staff changes, format changes and more. If you asked me a year ago if the site would be like it is now, I would have said no. I have changed co-hosts, and after doing Episode 19 by myself, I knew if I had to, I would keep doing the show by myself. Thankfully Eric came along through the recruiting of Victoria. Shortly thereafter Marc and Jessica joined the fray. To them I say thank you. Format wise, we are still bringing you news in some manner, but we have columns for you geeks to read (please do; they are awesome), but instead of being a news feed type site like Yahoo! Entertainment or others, we are going to give the stories our voice. Meaning if all of us report on the same story, then you will have the multiple opinions just like if you were chatting with us.
