Kingstone Media Delivers Biblical Adventures Through Comic Book Medium

Films based on the Holy Bible are as popular now as they were in the 1950s and 1960s when studios gave us epics like “The Ten Commandments,” “Ben-Hur,” “The Greatest Story Ever Told,” “King of Kings,” “Samson and Delilah,” and many others. Recently, “Son of God” made quite an impact in cinemas and there’s plenty more coming our way. Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” tells the tale of Christian Bale’s Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt. Nicolas Cage will help those seeking answers to the disappearances of loved ones and face the disastrous consequences of being “Left Behind.”

Superman and Batman At Odds in "Injustice: Gods Among Us Volume 2"

The world of the hit video game expands even further with “Injustice: Gods Among Us Volume 2.” Set in an alternate universe, it’s an open invitation for writers to take our beloved super heroes in directions we never thought we’d see them go in. Anything goes and anything will when preserving the continuity of the “real” DC Universe isn’t an issue. As you read this review, keep in mind I’ve never played the game. My opinion of the book is based solely on what I read.

Batman Fights His Way to Apokolips in Robin Rises: Omega

When Damian Wayne was killed off, I immediately knew it was only a matter of time before the character would somehow be resurrected. He was becoming such a pivotal part of the Batman legacy. By the time he met his demise I knew there was no way they would waste an opportunity to tell more stories about who I consider my favorite sidekick out of all of the Robins. The character was so complex emotionally and had a captivating backstory that further complicated the Dark Knight’s personal life and crime fighting persona.

First Annual "Batman Day" a Success in Arlington, TX

It’s safe to say the first annual “Batman Day” was a success for Barnes and Noble Bookstore at Parks Mall in Arlington, TX. Crowds of children and their parents were in attendance to celebrate the anniversary of the Dark Knight’s 75th birthday. Although the super hero’s first appearance was in the May 1939 issue of Detective Comics, its publisher DC decided to postpone the big celebration until July 23rd.

Celebrate 75 Years of the Dark Knight with "Batman Day," Anniversary Collections, and More

Batman is pretty spry for a 75-year-old super hero. It’s easy to explain away Superman staying so fit and young over three quarters of a century: he’s an indestructible alien powered by our sun. Bruce Wayne and his alter ego are perfect examples for the phrase, “You’re only as old as you think you are.” As far as he’s concerned, he’s still the same guy who pulled on the cape and cowl back in June of 1939 to solve “The Case of the Crime Syndicate.”

"Grudge" Creator Takashi Shimizu Brings Horror Fans "Rigor Mortis"

I make it no secret to anyone that I love the movies of Takashi Shimizu. One of the most exciting moments of my career as a movie blogger was getting the opportunity to interview the talented Writer / Director / Producer. While many grew weary of “The Grudge” after so many spin-offs and sequels, I actually enjoyed and found most of them terrifyingly entertaining.
