SORT BY Relevancy
Let me start by saying that I am a huge Marvel fan, and am in no way trying to alienate the Marvel fans out there. However, it's fun to take a look at this stuff from time to time...
Now, over the years there has been a few characters to come out of Marvel that have been suspiciously close to those of DC Comics', and not small ones at that. Marvel are definitely not the only ones guilty of a bit of attribute borrowing as can be seen from DC's clear doppelganger of "The Lizard", "Killer Croc." It can go both ways and I'm sure a lot of people will have different opinions and that's great. Please feel free to leave your comments and opinions in the comment section at the bottom of the page.
Join us as we discuss this weeks new releases and what WB CEO says about Marvel's Movies.

This Monday Graphic Policy Radio is getting truly outrageous as comic creator Kelly Thompson joins us to discuss Jem & The Holograms! The series debuts Wednesday March 25 and features art from Sophie Campbell.
In addition to the upcoming Jem & The Holograms comic, Kelly is the writer of Storykiller and The Girl Who Would Be King, as well as the co-writer of Captain Marvel & the Carol Corps.
Jem will be on a lot of people's minds as there's not only the comic, but a live action movie hitting theaters October 2015. For those who don't remember the rocking 80s cartoon....
It’s the 21st century, and Jem and The Holograms are 21st century girls! Meet Jerrica Benton, the gifted singer of The Holograms, a band that has the right look and the right sound… But one thing is holding them back—Jerrica’s crippling stage fright. Luckily, Jerrica is about to find help in the most unlikely of places when she discovers a forgotten present left by her father. And what she finds is truly outrageous!
Joining us is frequent guest Emma Houxbois. Emma is a queer blogger for hire out of Vancouver, BC, and the DC Comics reviewer for The Rainbow Hub!
So join us Monday and find out what everyone will be talking about, when we discuss Jem & the Holograms with Kelly Thompson. We want to hear from you too! Call in with your thoughts or Tweet them to us @graphicpolicy.

Graphic Policy Radio returns after a breif hiatus, and in this episode we go Who! Tonight, we're discussing Doctor Who, focusing on Titan Comics' various series featuring the many recent doctors. We're joined tonight with special guests Amanda Mayer and Chris Reid.
Amanda Mayer is a writer, director, and comedian, as well as a long-time Whovian. She can currently be seen performing with musical improv teams Goats and Orphan Alley around NYC.
Chris Reid is a lifelong nerd, avid gamer (both digital and physical) and consumer of sci-fi and fantasy entertainment in its various forms. He runs a solo law practice in Brooklyn, working largely with indie game developers and others in the game industry helping them navigate the various legal issues that crop up in their business (and sometimes procrastinating by playing his client's games). Chris watched the occasional old-school Doctor Who as a kid when it was on TV, but didn't really get into the Whoniverse (don't call it that) until about 2008, at which point he became an instant obsessive fan.
Join us for this wibbly wobbly timey wimey episode as we enjoy some fish fingers and custard and talk all things Who!
THE POE CONSEQUENCE:
In a section of Los Angeles near Dodger Stadium, two rival gangs rule the streets. For the Alvarado Street Diablos, it's been a year since the murder of one of their closest members at the hands of their sworn enemy, the North Rampart Lobos. A drive-by killing in his honor is planned, but things go wrong and an innocent bystander is the victim. Several hours later the one who pulled the trigger suffers a horrifying death, caused by something never before seen in its uniqueness. Many more such cases follow, all involving only these two gangs among the hundreds throughout the city. And each death occurs at the same time of day. The exact same time of day. What can these two enemies do to survive against an unstoppable power intent on their mutual destruction? How is a gang-hating young boy's attempt to save the life of a gang member tied into preventing a loved one's soul from eternal damnation? What does a mysterious psychic's prophecy conveyed earlier in New Orleans have to do with all of this? Exploring both the darkness and hope that define our emotions, The Poe Consequence integrates social and ethnic divisions through acts of fate and supernatural horror for the reader to observe and imagine.

Author, journalist and acclaimed writing instructor Charles Salzberg joins me this week to talk about his books, including: Swann's Lake of Despair, Swann Dives In, Swann's Last Song & Devil in the Hole.
From Swann's Lake of Despair:
When rare photos‚ a scandalous diary‚ and a beautiful woman all go missing at once‚ the stage is set for three challenging cases for Henry Swann. It begins with an offer to partner up with his slovenly‚ unreliable frenemy‚ Goldblatt. The disbarred lawyer-turned-"facilitator" would provide the leads and muscle‚ while Swann would do all the fancy footwork. A lost diary by a free-loving Jazz Age flapper is worth enough to someone that Swann takes a beat down on an abandoned boardwalk. Pilfered photos of Marilyn Monroe propel him deep into the past of an alcoholic shutterbug‚ his wife; and he's hired to search for a lonely writer's runaway girlfriend. The cases converge and collide in a finale that lifts the curtain on crucial‚ deadly facts of life for everyone -- including Swann himself.

Author David Robert joins me this week to talk about his book: Wanderlush.
When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself he’s dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, -popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora’s Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.
David knows the trips will be anything but boring because he and his mom have been causing a scene for as long as he can remember. He describes her as a cross between Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace, and she is notorious for bending the rules.
But nothing can prepare him for escapades that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David discovers that although he and his mom are having the time of their life, she is ready to share a secret that will change everything.
