Legion of Damn!

Back in the 1990s, when I was a flat-dwelling San Francisco Gen X slacktivist too busy falling in futile love with lesbians and smoking speed out of broken lightbulbs to do something as mundane as, ugh, watch TV, there was a live action series inspired by the X-Men comics I'd loved as a kid. Apparently, [...]

Anthology Arrives on March 21!

An anthology about the underestimated. Hey folks, this is Jim Zoetewey, current president of The Pen & Cape Society. The next Pen & Cape Society anthology arrives on March-- Hmmn... That's not good enough. This needs more emotion than simply passing on the date. What PCS needs is a promoter like Stan Lee. [...]

Mangold Paints His Masterpiece: A Spoiler-free Review of Logan

I was going to title this "Holy Fucking Shit! I Just Saw 'Logan'!" or words to that effect. But I went a different way. "Elegaic" is not a word I ever thought I'd be using to describe a movie set in the 20th Century Fox take on the X-Men Universe. I remember sitting in a [...]

The Devil’s Got A Free Hand!

As I further contemplate the turning of the screw that is achieving a half century of life, I find myself wanting to give away my earthly possessions--well, some of them anyway; definitely not the ones I use daily, like my car or any of my flatscreens or personal electronics--so I figure it's a fine time [...]

The Villain’s Sidekick For Free

Full disclosure: I'm about to have one of those milestone birthdays this month, where I find myself a lot older than the younger version of me ever thought I'd live to be. So in honor of that, I guess, I'm offering a couple of my books free this month over on Amazon, beginning with the [...]

Review: The Regional Office is Under Attack!

In a publishing world where we authors of a certain stripe are frequently told that there's just no market for superheroic prose, it's both heartening and frustrating when a work like this one manages to wend its way through the traditional distribution channels. Heartening because, like Soon I Will Be Invincible or The Violent Century, it's another testament to [...]
