Oh, boy, taking care of kids can really wear you out. They’re amazing, with minds full of wonder – minds often happily stimulated by comic books. But to avoid becoming Deadpool’s annoying yellow-box commentators and sounding endlessly droll, it’s important to take some time out from the little ones and relax to keep yourself happy and – at the very least – mentally healthy. Schedule  Firstly, actually schedule the time! One of the reasons I find I don’t actually relax or find time to do anything I want to do is because I’m...

Bruce Banner was cursed with having two personalities after he saved a teenager from being killed by a gamma bomb, taking all of the force and radiation from the bomb.  The results of this accident as I am sure most of you will be aware is that when angered Banner would turn into a giant green monster, known as the Hulk.  It is actually a desperately a sad tale...

The title of this blog is definitely something I have considered at many times in my life since I first picked up a DC comic featuring either of these amazing superheroes.  I don’t think you can actually read through a comic, be sucked into the characters’ lives and not think about what you would do if you had their super powers.  Superman and Wonder Woman have...

Obviously you can’t talk about comic books and superheroes regardless of whether you are talking about Marvel or DC without mentioning the one and only Dark Knight – Batman!  Now, understandably I can imagine that there as many people who wouldn’t like to be just like one of the darker characters in comic book history as those who would.  Bruce Wayne, the...

Although comic books have always featured heavily in my life, I still see them as largely a bit of escapism.  Even when this escapism influences my real life, I don’t feel like a live in a fantasy world.  However, as I grew up comic books definitely shaped the vision I had of what the perfect man for me should be.  The characters I read about and identified the...

I know that every single parent on the planet will agree that their kids are superheroes and I am not expecting this to come as any shock that I think mine are.  However, I still want to share a few incidents that have helped me realise that my kids are my favourite heroes.  Sorry Captain, Flash, Superman, Batman, Kitty, Wolverine but no-one is better than my kids,...

The bat cave is Bruce Wayne (Batman)’s hidden fortress that he uses to keep his two identities separate from each other.  In the same way that your child’s bedroom is their own personal space where they can go to have alone time, the bat cave is Bruce Wayne’s place for alone time.  Now, it obviously isn’t very sanitary for your kids to be living in a cave,...

I wouldn’t be surprised if most people in the world have heard of the mighty and heroic Superman at some point in their lives.  Ever since the first comics were published he has become an icon character in US history and his loved just as much across the globe.  If you have children that are big fans of the Man Of Steel then you may want to consider checking out...

If like me you are interested in collecting comic books, then this post is for you.  Comic book collecting is a lot of fun.  Although some people just collect comics for entertainment value, the majority of comic book fans (including me) collect them with a view to them becoming more valuable in the future.  In the following post I will give you helpful advice...

Regardless of the reason for having the party, what girls and boys don’t like superhero parties?  If you want to throw a superhero themed party for your children and their friends, but don’t want to spend too much money then this post is ideal for you. Instead of focusing in on one particular trademarked superhero or superhero team, it is a nice idea to just refer to it as a Superhero Party.  By doing that you are keeping it all nice and general and do not have to stick to a particular colour scheme or picture on all the napkins,...
