“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 […]

“Fantastic Four: 4 Yancy Street” #1

By | Aug 30, 2019 | Reviews

Why do citizens of the Marvel Universe still live in New York? It’s a question I’ve asked before and it’s a question I’ll probably ask again. Even if we set aside the risk to your life, what about the risk to, well, literally everything else? Hank Pym could stumble and flatten your car into a […]

“Magnificent Ms. Marvel” #6

By | Aug 23, 2019 | Reviews

Being a superhero isn’t as cool as it might look. It’s not all fun and games for the cape crowd, they definitely take their lumps time and time again. You would be hard-pressed to think of a superhero that hasn’t gone through some form of great turmoil or tragedy. Plenty even have to deal with […]

“Sinestro: Year of the Villain” #1

By | Aug 8, 2019 | Reviews

Remember when it was first announced that Jonathan Hickman was coming back to Marvel? Before it was revealed he would be writing an X-Men title, Marvel put out a simple ad. Just a date and his last name. They knew it was enough to get fans excited. DC had a similar strategy when Brian Michael […]

“History of the Marvel Universe” #1

By | Jul 25, 2019 | Reviews

When I was in fourth or fifth grade, my loving mother blew about forty-something bucks on The DC Comics Encyclopedia: The Definitive Guide to the Characters of the DC Universe for me. I loved that book more than anything, read every entry in the massive tome at least twice. Looking back, a lot of my […]

“Collapser” #1

By | Jul 18, 2019 | Reviews

While I love superheroes first and foremost, I’ve also read a good deal of non-superhero, ‘indie’ titles as well. I didn’t plan on it but I first got into indie comics thanks to my local library. Sure, I was mainly searching for Spider-Man paperbacks but titles like “Transmetropolitan” and “Chew” looked pretty interesting. I really […]

“Invisible Woman” #1

By | Jul 12, 2019 | Reviews

The Fantastic Four! A brilliant scientist–his best friend–the woman he loves–and her fiery-tempered kid brother! They aren’t just another superhero team, they’re a family. They’ve been joined at the hip since conception…so “Invisible Woman” #1 really is a special occasion. It’s rare that any of the FF fly solo and this marks Susan’s first-ever mini-series! […]

“Aero” #1

By | Jul 4, 2019 | Reviews

It’s tough being a new comic book character. The established A-listers sure aren’t going anywhere. Even when they kick the bucket, we all know it won’t be for long. The likes of Superman and Batman were here before us and probably will be here after us too. The newbies on the other hand? No job […]

“Spider-Man Annual” #1

By | Jun 28, 2019 | Reviews

Going in, I was pretty excited to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I was so confident it would be good, I bought my aunt and brother tickets, just so they could see it with me on opening night. Still, it managed to go above and beyond and completely blow me away. In my humble opinion, […]

“Giant-Man” #3

By | Jun 14, 2019 | Reviews

As far as superpowers go, I imagine that growing in size is more flashy than it is practical. Regular-sized people can already be unwieldy and in the way. Giant-sized people? Forget it. How Hank Pym or Scott Lang aren’t constantly bumping into buildings or pancaking cars is beyond me. Thing is, the flashiness probably makes […]
