Strange Times & Places: Ultimate Black Panther

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where today we’re looking at an AU story starring Black Panther (in celebration of his big screen debut this week). It’s just about the only one I could find – Ka-Zar headlined more issues of What If? than King T’Challa, and he tops out at one! How’s It Different? Like … [Read more...]

Strange Times & Places: Vampirella Manga

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where we’re turning our eyes away from the big two and towards the classic pin-up horror heroine Vampirella as we read the two Vampirella Manga ashcan specials. How’s It Different? These would be imaginary stories, placing monstrous femme fatales Vampirella and Pantha … [Read more...]

Strange Times & Places: X-Men Forever

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where we’re looking at a mutant-centric story in honor of The Gifted’s season finale last night – Chris Claremont’s X-Men Forever. How’s It Different? It’s a Royale With Cheese, where a bunch of little differences add up to create something very different, but it all … [Read more...]

Strange Times & Places: ST:TNG: Mirror Broken

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where today we’re taking a visit to the 24th century AND an alternate reality in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Mirror Broken. How’s It Different? I’d say that it’s a Royale With Cheese. The Mirror Universe canonically diverged from the mainstream Trek Universe … [Read more...]

Strange Times & Places: Green Hornet: Dark Tomorrow

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where last week’s story gave me a hankering for more of those at least some of those of those characters: 1993’s Green Hornet: Dark Tomorrow. How’s It Different? I would term this an Imaginary Story, being as it’s a possible future that may or may not come to … [Read more...]

Strange Times & Places: Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where today we’re looking at one of the oddest AU stories I’ve encountered to date. Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure takes nine licensed heroes who don’t typically share a universe and puts them together in, shockingly enough, a steam punk world. How’s It … [Read more...]

Strange Times & Places: Justice League: Gods & Monsters Mini-Series

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where in honor of sadly underperforming Justice League movie, we’re looking at another Justice League’s origin story: the Justice League: Gods & Monsters prequel mini-series.

Strange Times & Places: Crisis on Earth X

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where I’ve decided that the whole month of December will be spent looking at Elseworlds, Alternate Timelines, and the Infinite Earths. We’re kicking it off by examining the Earth X introduced in last week’s DCTV Arrowverse crossover, Crisis on Earth X. How’s It … [Read more...]

Strange Times & Places: Lord Drakkon’s World

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where I must apologize for my sudden two week absence – my computer unexpectedly broke down on me. Today, we’re going to be doing a little mash-up with Tokusatsu Gesundheit as we look at the alternate world portrayed in Boom! Studios Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #9-16 and … [Read more...]

Strange Times & Places: Gotham City Garage #1

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where we promise you’re not reading a repeat! Two things happened this week that lead to doing another ST&P: First, Kamen Rider Build ended on a game changing cliffhanger last week and I felt it better to see how it resolves before writing about the show. Second, it turns … [Read more...]
