It’s that time, people. Can’t you feel it? Growing closer and closer. Lurking right around the corner. Dread it, run from…it still arrives. Oh my goodness, there it is! It’s another big crossover event! Dun Dun Dun! I’m not even looking at a solicit right now but ten bucks says that it uses a word […]

You know them! You love them! It’s time to read all about the newest comic starring your favorite wall-crawler. Wait, what? No, I’m not talking about Peter. The one with the cool red and black costume!…No, not Miles Morales either. Come on guys, you’ve got this. I’m talking about Captain Marvel’s best friend, Jessica…no, not […]

“Ant-Man” #3

By | Mar 13, 2020 | Reviews

I bought my very first comic books back in fifth grade, two Marvel Select ‘double-sized flip magazine(s)’ from the 7-Eleven. One of those Marvel Selects revolved around the X-Men while the other revolved around the Avengers. That one had “New Avengers” #15 on one side while on the other, in “Young Avengers” #2, a young […]

“Marauders” #9

By | Mar 6, 2020 | Reviews

I don’t know about you but I’ve been enjoying the heck out of the Dawn of X line a.k.a. ‘How Mutantkind Got Its Groove Back’. It’s refreshing to see mutants living their best lives and moving in interesting new directions. I mean, we’ve got mutants in space! Apocalypse is a wizard now! You might think […]

“New Mutants” #8

By | Feb 28, 2020 | Reviews

In the Marvel Universe, it’s a bright new dawn for the mutants of the world. Out in the real world, it’s a bright new dawn for all of us who are fans of those mutants. I can’t speak for anyone but myself, but being an X-fan was a struggle for the longest time. To be […]

“2020 Machine Man” #1

By | Feb 21, 2020 | Reviews

The robot revolution is finally here! No longer will we review comics focused on the superheroes of the human oppressors! It is time for a robot hero to step into the limelight. I am, of course, talking about…no, not the Vision. Ultron? He’s definitely a robot but I don’t think we could ever call him […]

“Nebula” #1

By | Feb 14, 2020 | Reviews

I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again, Guardians of the Galaxy was one of the most important MCU movies, hands down. There are ordinary people walking around that have never so much as picked up a comic but know who Yondu is. I’ve been reading comics for, give or take, fourteen years […]

“Justice League” #40

By | Feb 6, 2020 | Reviews

Remember the Justice League movie? You know, the one with a bunch of iffy CGI and a bootleg Thanos for the villain. It wasn’t great…my brother was on his phone for the last twenty minutes and I can’t say I blame him. I wanted to like it so badly too. When I was a kid, […]

“Amazing Spider-Man: The Daily Bugle” #1

By | Jan 31, 2020 | Reviews

When shaping the Marvel universe, Stan Lee created and co-created plenty of fascinating super-humans. Emphasis on ‘human’. He had a talent for making the most astonishing characters relatable. Take the Fantastic Four for example. Yes, they’re explorers on a cosmic scale but at the end of the day, they’re a family. Better yet, take Spider-Man […]

“Captain Marvel” #14

By | Jan 24, 2020 | Reviews

Sometimes, comic book tropes can be exhausting. Characters die and then they’re back in a month or two. Aliens are invading New York…again. An evil scientist is building yet another death ray. If not executed properly, it can all wear thin very fast. On the other hand, if it is executed properly? Well, the old […]

“Venom: The End” #1

By | Jan 17, 2020 | Reviews

Over the years, Marvel Comics has more than earned the right to be referred to as the ‘House of Ideas’. The Marvel Universe is host to several unique and colorful characters, worlds, heck, realities even. A lot of these ideas are truly amazing, fantastic and astonishing. The Marvel Universe is ever-expanding too, each day there’s […]

“Magnificent Ms. Marvel” #11

By | Jan 10, 2020 | Reviews

On the surface, the superhero life seems like a pretty sweet deal. You get a cool costume and some fun stories at the very least. Maybe you travel to one or two fantastical alien worlds or dimensions. If you hit the A-list? You get next-level fame. Mega-fame. Back in the first volume of “New Avengers”, […]
