With a cheerful smile and a wink, George Reeves’ Superman won the hearts of millions of fans worldwide in the 1950s and well beyond.  Reeves’ Superman exuded friendly confidence, compassion, humor, and an air of almost paternal authority.  Everyone in the room always knew where they stood with Superman, and the authorities never questioned him. Gangsters feared him, but he was a super-gentleman to everyone else, especially Lois Lane.  The playful, romantic tension between Lois and Superman was a big part of the fun factor!

His role as the Man of Steel ran from 1951 through 1958, but Reeves’ endearing portrayal resonated with fans for decades to come.  To this day, for many, George Reeves has always been, and will always be…SUPERMAN!

Review by Henry Varona


Aquaman is a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster. Let that sink in for a moment. As a fan who was introduced to the hero through various cartoons like Super Friends and Justice League, I’ll admit that I never thought I would see this day, but I am thrilled to witness it. Aquaman proves all the haters wrong, whether they be critics of the DC Extended Universe or the character itself, with a fast-paced and stylized movie that is sure to bring a smile to the face of even the most-jaded fan. With dazzling visuals, fun action, and a strong cast, Aquaman makes a great case for being the best DC movie of the decade.

While back East for my dentist’s STAR WARS themed wedding (not kidding), I was able to catch up with Mez and he was nice enough to give AFJ & MIDTOWN COMICS an exclusive interview about his company’s flagship line of action figures. Not only is he an incredibly knowledgeable guy, Mez is exactly what this industry needs–someone that truly gives a damn what you guys are spending your hard earned cash on and wants to make the best possible product. There was no MEZCO before this Mez which means that he is an entrepreneur that took a chance on himself and believing in something he loved could become a career. Now he is at the top of his game and the talk of the toy world. Never underestimate a kid from NYC with a dream.
