Quite a treat located right at the museum’s entrance!

If you’re reading this article, then the odds are pretty good you’re at least somewhat interested in comic books! If so, we’re happy to say that walking through the New York Historical Society’s Superheroes in Gotham exhibit is something we absolutely recommend! It really doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to the medium, a casual fan of superheroes, or a longtime mega fan, because the exhibit has something for everyone to appreciate. From a detailed spotlight of popular characters’ earliest moments, to an insightful look at how the characters took over popular culture, the exhibit is not only educational, but also a ton of fun! Oh, and we can’t help but love the fact they have one of the Batmobiles from the classic 1966 Batman show right at the museum’s entrance!

The Walking Dead Morgan

By Gregg Katzman

AMC’s sixth season of The Walking Dead has been an intense ride. Right out of the gate, viewers were thrown into a jaw-dropping situation and, as expected, nothing went as planned. It’s been one gripping scene after another, but the latest episode, ‘ Here’s Not Here’, slowed things down. No longer was the focus on the bigger story and the characters who are in major trouble. There were no swarms of walkers, no follow-up with BIG questions fans have been asking since a week ago. Is that one character truly dead? (Probably not.) Will Rick lose his hand? (Probably not?) Season 6 has been one thrilling event after another, but last night’s new episode cast all of season 6’s events aside (for the most part, that is) so it could focus on a key character: Lennie James’ Morgan Jones.

The Walking Dead comic

First and foremost, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! We hope you mighty Midtowners have a fun and safe holiday this year! If you do dress up as a comic book character, tell us in the comments! Secondly, what better way is there to celebrate than reflecting on some of the scariest and creepiest comics around? So, we’ve thought about the countless scary comics that have been published over the years, and we have quite a few to recommend! Obviously, not every single horror/spooky comic will be on the list below, so if there’s one you really like that isn’t here, promote it in the comments! Also, don’t forget to stop by any of our three stores on Halloween for Comic Fest – there are free comics!

Supergirl TV Show

CBS’ Supergirl is finally here, and it made quite a debut. There’s already a good amount of comic book TV shows on the air and there’s even more on the horizon, but last night’s Supergirl premiere showed that superhero fatigue has not set in! The brand new comic book show, which stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, received a whopping 12.9 million viewers! Only time will tell whether or not a majority of viewers stick around, but so far, the Kryptonian’s show is off to an incredibly strong start!

Thanks to a whole lot of charm, humor, relatable characters, and overwhelming sense of optimism, it’s looking like Supergirl could be the lighthearted and family-friendly comic book show that millions of fans – from young viewers to longtime comic readers – across the globe can enjoy! The fact there’s some pretty good special effects, entertaining action scenes with superpowers, and major easter eggs doesn’t hurt, either! And with that ending, we’re absolutely interested in seeing how everything will play out, as well as finding out which other villains may pop up.

What do you think about the brand new show, Mighty Midtowners? Are you left wanting to watch more adventures with Supergirl, or are you not going to tune in for the second episode? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

The Walking Dead TV Show

The latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, ‘Thank You’, was pretty heartbreaking. But is that character (we’re being spoiler-free here, just to be safe!) truly dead, or did another person’s body save them from being turned into fresh food for the hungry and relentless undead? Only time will tell, but for now, the jaw-dropping moment has us reflecting on some of the most impactful deaths that have occurred in the show that’s based on Robert Kirkman’s terrific comic. Obviously, a lot of lives have been lost in the series, so if a death that really impacted you isn’t below, feel free to share it in the comments and explain why it was unforgettable. Warning, there’s SPOILERS!
