“Annihilation – Scourge: Nova” #1

By | Dec 6, 2019 | Reviews

Some of the most wild and imaginative ideas at the House of Ideas can be found in space. Beyond the now-familiar Rocket and Groot there’s the likes of Beta Ray Bill, the bionic alien with the power of Thor. If that doesn’t do it for you, we’ve got Ego the Living Planet or maybe Cosmo, […]

“Yondu” #1

By | Nov 8, 2019 | Reviews

What would you say are the most important movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? I want to be clear, I’m not necessarily talking about the best movies but the most important. While the two categories often overlap, there is a difference. For example, I do not like Doctor Strange. It is just Iron Man with […]

“Doctor Strange Annual” #1

By | Nov 1, 2019 | Reviews

Confession time, guys. I didn’t like Doctor Strange. I skip it on every MCU rewatch. I mean, there were the one-note villains who just fell flat (Just try to name Mads Mikkelsen’s character off the top of your head). The underdeveloped love interest. The whitewashing controversy surrounding the Ancient One. All of that before we […]

“Strikeforce” #2

By | Oct 25, 2019 | Reviews

The nightlife in Las Vegas just can’t be beat. It really is a non-stop party and the possibilities are endless. You can go clubbing or take in a mystifying magic show, if you prefer. Maybe you want to make a beeline straight for the casinos you’ve heard so much about? Well that’s no problem at […]

“Spider-Man” #2

By | Oct 17, 2019 | Reviews

I don’t know about you, but I was pretty interested to read J.J. Abrams’s “Spider-Man”. He’s such a high-profile talent and in the past, I’ve really liked what he’s done with other iconic properties like Star Trek and Star Wars. I mean, I wasn’t even into the Star Trek franchise all that much so just […]

“Web of Black Widow” #2

By | Oct 11, 2019 | Reviews

The Marvel Universe is positively overflowing with superheroes. There’s something for everybody, a superhero for everybody. We all have our favorites. I like Black Panther, you might prefer Thor. On the flip side of that coin, we all have characters we hate too. For example, Daimon Hellstrom gets on my last nerve. His very presence […]

“Absolute Carnage: Immortal Hulk” #1

By | Oct 4, 2019 | Reviews

There’s a lot to appreciate about Al Ewing’s work but something that I like in particular is that the guy writes a great tie-in comic. Sometimes in a tie-in, an ongoing story established in previous issues will be completely derailed for the crossover’s sake. Sometimes, they are completely forgettable and add nothing to the story. […]

“Harleen” #1

By | Sep 26, 2019 | Reviews

Here’s a question for you: What do the Wonder Twins, X-23 and Harley Quinn all have in common? They’re all comic book characters who didn’t start out in the comics. As a matter of fact, these guys all made their debuts in cartoons, leaving such a big impression that they were properly introduced into the […]

“Superman” #15

By | Sep 20, 2019 | Reviews

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! Superman is undeniably one of the most iconic characters of all time. His name is practically synonymous with superhero. Both his influence and importance in comics cannot be denied. Here’s the thing though…sometimes Superman comics are […]

“Moon Knight Annual” #1

By | Sep 13, 2019 | Reviews

At first, I wasn’t sold on the upcoming Disney Plus. I love Disney as much as the next guy, but come on. Another streaming service? If every company makes their own streaming service, it would seem that a bunch will probably fall by the wayside. I don’t know if this is sustainable or how it’s […]

“DCeased: A Good Day to Die” #1

By | Sep 6, 2019 | Reviews

Teamwork makes the dream work. See, it must be true because it rhymes. Seriously though, comic books would be nowhere near as fun without different and unique characters coming together. Think about all the teams we’ve grown to know and love. The Avengers. Justice League. X-Men. Even taking it further than that, sometimes you just […]
