Detective Comics #27: The Bat-Man: The Case of the Chemical Syndicate

Written by: Bill Finger Art by: Bob Kane Released on: May 1939 Published by: DC Well, I usually tend not to review old comics. When I do, people tend to ask why I would review something that is that old. The answer is easy: have you read the comic or know anything about where the characters come from? Do you know how each of your favorite characters started? Have you seen what they have faced and ...[Read More]

Marvel Netflix Characters: Your Argument Is Invalid!

I really need to stop doing articles about anything having to do with comic books. It’s not that I’m unqualified to discuss the topic. When discussing DC properties, I yield to Cousin Jose; he’s more ingrained in the DC Universe than I am. But I challenge anyone not named Stan Lee to out-geek me in Marvel’s realm. Still, Cousin Jose is the comics God of Digital Crack. My wheelhouse is video games,...[Read More]

First Look at Robin’s Titans Costume

So yesterday, we were shown the first image of what the modern Dick Grayson Robin costume looks like in the upcoming Titans, and I have to say I like it. I do have to say that it looks like a mix of the New 52 Dick Grayson Robin and the Arkhamverse Robin from Batman: Arkham Origins. The suit looks like it will be tactical, but with comic elements. Think somewhat towards how Justice League handled ...[Read More]

Will Ferrell Cast as Reverse Flash? Yeah, I Call BS!

“For just one night let’s not be co-workers. Let’s be co-people.” On November 8th, Uncle Willy, Punisher and I were having the usual debaucherous conversation that we usually have every day. During that session, Punisher asked me what I knew about the upcoming film for The Flash. I told him nothing lately since I don’t want to know too much. Hollywood spoils everything nowadays; please...[Read More]

2017: Superhero Movies and What I Want from Them – Midseason Report

In January of this year, I wrote my take on the superhero movies coming out this year, what I expected from them, and what I hoped wouldn’t happen with them. By the end of the article, anyone who read it would be forgiven if they thought I wasn’t exactly optimistic. I spit a bit of venom, but I generally wasn’t overly worried. If anything, I was more worried in 2016. Halfway through, and it’s time...[Read More]

Personal Top 5: Anime Series

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything substantive on this site that wasn’t about E3. I have a lot to say about a lot of things, but I decided that I would write about a subject I’ve only lightly broached until now: anime. I have the distinct pleasure of saying I raised two proper otaku. My son and my daughter are very versed in anime, to the point they have surpassed me. Trust me when I sa...[Read More]

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

“Does whatever a spider can!” This was the perfect Spider-Man movie I’ve been waiting for. Hell, they even opened the movie with the Spider-Man theme song from the 60s cartoon! Tom was indeed the perfect Spider-Man in my eyes. He had the wit, the smarts, and the looks. I’m just glad they skipped the whole Uncle Ben dying, great power comes great responsibility thing, and how he got his...[Read More]

Black Panther Teaser Trailer Released

“What do you know about Wakanda?” After the wonderful success of Wonder Woman, I’ve been feeling renewed hope for the DCEU in general. With the imminent release of Spider-Man: Homecoming in July, I knew DC’s feel-good window was short-lived. But I was willing to bask in it for as long as I could. Then Marvel looked at me and said, “here. Hold my beer.” And out p...[Read More]

Wonder Woman Impressions

“Oh, I really like her!” The Digital Crack crew saw Wonder Woman over the weekend. Three of them decided to write their impressions of the movie from three different perspectives. Cousin Jose is the DC expert; he speaks from the point of view of a hardcore DC fan. Uncle Willy is a Marvel guy but still enjoys DC books; he writes from the perspective of a more casual fan. Meanwhile, Puni...[Read More]

The MCU May Be Getting Awful Fox-y

How one deal might supercharge the Marvel Cinematic Universe It was during my second viewing of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that it finally hit me. My first viewing was at Cinébistro, a posh, adults-only theater that serves awesome food and fruity drinks. They have a full bar, though, so I was able to have a vodka tonic. I was accompanied by a lovely female friend who I dragged along because I ...[Read More]

Thor: Ragnarok Teaser Trailer Released

Valhalla I am coming… Before I go any further, I’d like to ask Hollywood for one small favor. Could you please lay off the old pop and rock songs for your trailers? It’s getting kinda old, guys. Yes, I know this is LED FUCKING ZEPPELIN on this trailer, but…seriously. I’m sure you folks have someone in the mail room who can string together a few notes. Just show a litt...[Read More]
