The Flash is back! It's the season premiere and we've got pros, cons, easter eggs, and more!
Canadian films Gabrielle and Enemy took home major film awards at last night's Canadian Screen Awards, while Call Me Fitz and Orphan Black ruled the television side of the evening's festivities.
Tomorrow night the best and brightest in Canadian movies and television get celebrated with the Canadian Screen Awards (airing on CBC at 8:00pm, hosted by Martin Short). Our Film and Performing Arts editor looks at this year's nominees, makes a couple of predictions, and wonders aloud why only technically three of the Best Feature nominees have actually been released in theatres.
Publisher DC Comics recently made the bold decision to relaunch their comic book universe in an effort to make their comic books more "modern and accessible". Dubbed "The New 52", the rebooted universe offers a fresh start for iconic superheroes and lesser known characters alike with all 52 titles being renumbered to #1. It's a major event, which is why local DC Comics fans Nug Nahrgang and Andrew Cymek are planning to review EVERY single issue of "The New 52" through their first story arcs.
DC's summer super-event, Flashpoint has both the fun of an alternate reality tale and the reward of a continuity storyline. Written by Geoff "I am DC" Johns, with stunning artwork by Andy Kubert, the first issue is largely spent setting up this previously unseen ‘world’. And what a world they have crafted! Though I'm more a fan of Green Lantern than of The Flash, this event looks to be far more exciting... and dare I pun ‘fast paced’, than Blackest Night or Brightest Day.
DC Comics’ dynamic cover campaign strikes again! I picked up this month's issue of The Flash based entirely on the phenomenal cover by local artist Francis Manapul. I’m not entirely sure why I wasn’t expecting to enjoy the issue, but it is a great read. This reallyshouldn’t have come as a surprise to me, given the creative team involved.
