“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 […]

“Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III” #2

By | Jun 7, 2019 | Reviews

This is a review for an issue of “Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III”. I know I’m pointing out the obvious, but that simple fact just blows my mind. Think about how DC Comics and IDW Publishing both saw fit to bless us with a Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles team-up mini-series. I can hardly believe that […]

“Transformers” #6

By | May 31, 2019 | Reviews

For whatever reason, I could never really get into Transformers. I don’t understand why…in theory, alien robot warriors should be right up my alley. I’ve tried again and again. I sat through the first three Michael Bay films but only liked the first. I’ve started and stopped watching the original Transformers, Transformers:Animated and Transformers: Prime. […]

“Action Comics” #1011

By | May 24, 2019 | Reviews

Bendis is coming! Remember that ad? The text was in all caps, accompanied by an exclamation point and smiling Superman. DC Comics was more than proud to show off their newest writer and for good reason. Brian Michael Bendis was Marvel’s golden boy for years. Whether you’re a fan of the guy or not, his […]

This Month in Comics: April 2019

By | May 7, 2019 | Columns

With a month of blockbusters, crossovers, and silly pranks behind us, it is time to look back on the month that was April 2019. Best Issue: “Avengers: No Road Home” #10 “No Road Home,” the spiritual sequel to “Avengers: No Surrender,” is a more low key affair than its predecessor. Yes, the villain literally blots […]

X-Men Origins: Wolverine: Lighten Up, Bub

By | May 3, 2019 | Reviews

Critically, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a mediocre film at best. It attempts to be many things and falls flat several times over. It’s too tame a revenge thriller and not that great an origin story. There are action flicks several times better and the villains never reach their full potential. The relationships at the core […]
