Comics Mystery: Shiva Elvis

I work at the home office of Barnes & Noble, and we get a multitude of review copies every day. Being a bibliovore, I like to browse the shelves occasionally, to see what’s new and interesting, and to grab the occasional graphic novel for myself, or a Christmas present for my nieces and nephews. So, […]

Back in the Summer of 1994, I was visiting my relatives in Germany.

The New York Times spotlights a new comics blog investigating Superhero law. Law and the Multiverse: Superheroes, Supervillains, and the Law investigates how everyday law would affect superheroes.  Contracts, immigration, insurance claims, and the Americans with Disabilities Act are just some of the recent discussions.  (Is Clark Kent a legal U.S. citizen?  Is a mutant gene a disability?)  […]
