Speculations on the Last Continent

Posted October 6, 2017 By John C Wright

An eagle eyed reader of Lost on the Last Continent offers the following speculation. In the most recent episode Colonel Lost meets, fights, and speaks to a young druzhinnik from a mythical lost city in medieval Russia. One reader somewhat cryptically remarked that there was an astonishingly short gap of time between them. Another offered […]

SJW Marvel

Posted September 28, 2017 By John C Wright

There may be those of you who think I am kidding about the state of Marvel comics, and the concerted, coordinated effort the Left is making there, as with the Hugos, to blot out everything we love in the Pop culture, and replace it with politically correct doublethink and dullness, virtue signaling and depravity. Below […]

D&C on Marvel LEGACY

Posted September 28, 2017 By John C Wright

At least one reviewer has looked over Marvel LEGACY #1 and, as I suspected, panned it as being the same boring SJW trash as ever. On this variant cover, all the beloved characters appear, including Thor, Cap, Spidey, Iron Man, Hulk, each in the real version. There is even a curvaceous and feminine version of […]

Name the DC or Marvel Character

Posted September 26, 2017 By John C Wright

A recent column of mine complaining about the blotting out of all the mainstream and long loved Marvel characters has been met with what I assume are ceremonial denials but those whose “narrative” (that is, a dogmatically held and deliberately false picture of the universe) requires them to utter these words. Oceania has always been at […]

Milo on Comicgate

Posted September 22, 2017 By John C Wright

Worth reading for any fan of comics. Take a look at who these people are and what they do. https://milo.yiannopoulos.net/2017/09/exit-right-to-comicgate/ Start writing letters to Disney. Someone in that organization must still be interested in making money and pleasing the fans.

Three Origins of Superheroes

Posted September 22, 2017 By John C Wright

Alexander Macris was my editor when I worked for EveryJoe. I liked working with him and hope to do so again. Here he gives his theory of the three origins of superheroes: There are only three origin stories for superheroes. Everything else is just re-mixing on these three ingredients. Ordinary person accidentally becomes extraordinary through chance. […]

Death from the Deep

Posted August 19, 2017 By John C Wright

A question: What is your favorite Shadow story Mr. Wright? I’m asking because this story is making me depressed and I need a good read. While I like THE SHADOW’S SHADOW and GRAY FIST and DEATH TOWER as the best written stories, this is my favorite radio play.

Dynamite Comics just put out a new version of The Shadow. The Shadow is and has been my most deeply beloved character of my imaginative life. They turned him into an SJW who lectures villains on their white privilege. I am not making this up.

I Feels Me Another Comic Book Rant a-Comin

Posted June 1, 2017 By John C Wright

Reading this insightful column triggered another spasm of postmodern stress disorder in yours truly. The column compared and contrasted the excellent handling of certain themes in the anime MY HERO ACADEMIA versus the brain rot that has set in at DC and Marvel, where nothing matters because any comic character can be brought back from […]
