  • The CW’s interconnected superhero series return this month, and with Supergirl joining Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, there are going to be more superheroes on the channel than you can shake a stick at. All four of these shows are fantastic in their own way—the gritty vigilante style of Arrow, the colorful meta-humor of The Flash, the gloriously weird sci-fi twists of Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl’s sunny feminism.

  • BOOK The Spectacular Sisterhood of Superwomen

    A woman's place is saving the universe.

  • Getting punched sucks. The dull thud of flesh on flesh as an argument reaches its apex is by far one of the most off-putting experiences of life. Since today is National Punch Day, we at Quirk have decided to ignore the fruity beverage version of punch and instead take a look at some of the most epic punches in comic books and literature.

  • Netflix has come a long way from the days of mailing us DVDs. Now, the streaming service isn’t just making it easier to binge-watch existing shows – it is creating its own line-up of original programming… and it is absolutely killing it. From historical dramas to real-life crime, from anime to teen horror, Netflix has an original series for everyone – especially bookworms. Many of the most popular Netflix series are based on books, and with good reason. Adaptations come with an existing fan base without the need to create an entirely new story from scratch. It’s no wonder Netflix loves adapting them!

  • The rise of the anti-hero has been long heralded in pop culture, especially in the era of Peak TV. The Tony Sopranos and Walter Whites of television have battled their inner demons as morally ambiguous protagonists. While this is a less common archetype in recent science fiction and fantasy films, there are a few who step forward to test their level of morality.

  • Over the last few years DC comics has been putting out its superhero comics under the banner of The New 52. This new take on the DC Universe characters change a considerable amount of continuity. Recently, DC has decided to take its comics in a new direction with a story line titled Rebirth. While this story has yet to be fully solidified in the comics, one thing has become clear, it contains one of the most interesting crossovers ever to be brought into comics. In 1986 Vertigo Comics released Alan Moore’s seminal comic Watchmen which was an indictment of modern superhero comics. Now, thirty years later, characters from Watchmen are being introduced into the continuity of the DC Universe. In celebration of this new direction, here is a list of some of the greatest comic crossovers ever.
