Parting Shot: Life-Size Lego Batman. As much as we loved the Lego Batman videogame, these life-size replicas of the Caped Crusader as captured by Flickr user MJ’laflaca are a whole different scale of awesome.

What should we call this age of comics?

I have argued, twice before, that we’re living in the Golden Age of comics, simply because of the sheer diversity of the product and the accessibility of it all (those links are old; the second one has those formatting problems that older entries on this blog still have).

So let’s break down the generally accepted “ages” of comics before moving on to speculation: Comic Book Easter Eggs Archive!

When We First Met

@ Comic Book Resources When We First Met – Joker’s Deadly Bag of Tricks by Brian Cronin| March 15, 2014 |17 Comments| In this feature we spotlight the various characters, phrases, objects or events that eventually became notable parts of comic lore. Not major stuff like “the first appearance of Superman,” but rather, “the first time someone said, ‘Avengers Assemble!’” Today, based on a suggestion by reader Joe M., we’ll take a look at the introduction of various Joker stand-bys, like the joy buzzer, the acid-squirting flower and the “Bang” flag gun… Continue Reading » When We First Met – “And There Came a Day…” by Brian Cronin| January 26, 2014 |24 Comments| This is a special mini-edition of When We First Met, answering a question I just got on Twitter from T_Campbell Hey, do you know when the Avengers lead in “a day unlike any other” made its first appearance?
