Sep 26, 2011 TV Web Exclusive

To escape a dystopian future, the Shannon family volunteers to be sent 85 million years into the past to join a settlement of humans on Mesozoic Earth.

The latest Wilco album further drives home the fact that, while there would be no Wilco without leading light Jeff Tweedy, the group is hardly Tweedy-plus-accompanists. The Whole Love, their first on the band's own dBpm imprint, is a record performed by a bunch of players who are utterly comfortable in the collective skin that they shed on a regular basis. More

Red Hood and the Outlaws #1


Writer: Scott Lobdell; Artist: Kenneth Rocafort

Sep 25, 2011 Comic Books Web Exclusive

Red Hood and the Outlaws #1 is disappointing. Scott Lobdell employs strong and appropriate first-person narration from two different characters, which is a tricky thing to pull off. Kenneth Rocafort's art is sort of like '90s-style done right; it's very scratchy in parts, uses exaggerated proportions to its advantage, rather than to an annoying extent, and has lots of personality. And we have three strong, pre-existing DC characters as the main players and some pretty interesting brand new ideas. But there's one thing that makes this book just go off the rails. More

Legion of Super-Heroes #1


Written by Paul Levitz; Art by Francis Portela; Colors by Javier Mena; Letters by Pat Brosseau; Edited by Chris Conroy; Cover by Karl Kerschl

Sep 23, 2011 Comic Books Web Exclusive

There are at least 16 protagonists in the first issue of Legion of Super-Heroes and writer Paul Levitz (Adventure Comics) fails to make us care about most of them. It's not quite the train wreck of sloppy art and Michael Bay-esque action that was Legion Lost #1, but this story leaves much to be desired. More
