“Winter Soldier” #1

By | Dec 7, 2018 | Reviews

In recent history, Bucky Barnes has become one of Marvel’s most popular characters. He isn’t just a favorite among comic book readers, he’s got mainstream recognition. It’s kind of insane, considering that he was six feet under for forty-one years. Dead. ‘Regular’ dead too, not the ‘Jean Grey’ kind. Today, he’s a Marvel mainstay and […]

“Shazam” #1

By | Dec 7, 2018 | Reviews

It has been a very long time since the last ongoing, in-continuity, Captain Marvel/Shazam series.
