Old Comics

I have an annual membership with DC Universe Infinite. When it first started out, as DC Universe, it was meant to be a streaming service. It's where TV shows like Titans, Doom Patrol, and Swamp Thing all got their start before being moved to HBO Max. Once HBO Max became an option, DC Universe, as … Continue reading Old Comics


Why Don’t Superheroes Stay Dead?

Earlier today, as a part of this month's A to Z Challenge, I wrote a post about Doomsday, the creature/being that killed Superman in the now classic Death of Superman storyline of the early 1990s.
