Art of the Week (2/7 – 2/13)

By | Feb 14, 2011 | Columns

This week’s Art of the Week has a superb list of contributors, ranging from the typical Twarters and Periscopians to the very surprising and talented more indie centric creators. That includes work from one of my absolute favorite artists, Massimo Carnevale, as he put together a rendition of “The Assassination of Jesse James by the […]

Friday Recommendation: Desolation Jones

By | Feb 11, 2011 | Columns

A few weeks back, we here at Multiversity were celebrating the return of Fell, one of Warren Ellis’s greatest comic creations that was put on a lengthy hiatus when his computer croaked in 2008. Of the many other projects whose future the dead computer made suspect, one of my personal favorites was Desolation Jones, a […]

Fund It! – Post-Grounded Superman

By | Feb 10, 2011 | Columns

In about five issues, Superman is going to finish his walk about the United States and get back to flying about Metropolis — at least, I assume. I was intrigued by the idea behind the “Grounded” storyline when it was announced, but at this point I have gotten a bit tired of it and am […]

Art of the Week (1/31 – 2/6)

By | Feb 7, 2011 | Columns

On this week’s Art of the Week, we’ve got a smaller than usual batch of pieces because it seemed like there just weren’t as many options out there in Super Bowl Week. But there were some great ones, led by this incredible Sean Murphy sketch of Space Boy from Umbrella Academy off of “Aw Yeah […]

Friday Recommendation: Legionnaires

By | Feb 4, 2011 | Columns

Back in the early nineties, when the Legion of Super-Heroes was rebooted without any mention of the Man of Steel, there were two titles, much like today. Only instead of having classic stories paired with modern stories, the two were independent of each other, with LoSH being the adult Legion, and Legionnaires being their teenage […]

Fund It! – The Future of All-Ages Comics

By | Feb 2, 2011 | Columns

Since the downgrading of Brian Clevinger’s all-ages Captain America title from a four issue mini to a lone one-shot, all-ages comics have become the current hot topic within the comic fandom. Last Friday, David laid out the facts and the myths of all-ages comics, and today I would like to present some ideas as to […]

Comics Should Be Cheap! (2/2/11)

By | Feb 2, 2011 | Columns

I’m not going to lie – this is one of the lightest weeks in terms of recent comic history. There isn’t a lot out there that is really blowing us away, but there are a lot of nice books that still makes it difficult to keep our budget below $20. I do have to say, […]

This Month In Comics: January 2011

By | Feb 1, 2011 | Columns

Normally when we do the month in review we focus on the best and worst of the month’s comic output. Surprisingly, though, I made it through the month without reading a single bad comic. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there were more than a few, but upon returning to college I have had neither […]

Fund It! – The Weirdo Return of Dr. Fate

By | Jan 27, 2011 | Columns

Other than what basically amounts to a supporting role in Justice Society of America, Dr. Fate has been getting the short end of the stick over the last few years. Frankly, its not really treatment befitting the eminent sorcerer of the DC Universe. That said, magic based books, especially within DC’s jurisdiction, have historically been […]

Art of the Week (1/17 – 1/23)

In this new post I’ll be throwing down every Monday, I’m going to be looking at the best art I’ve found online over the past week. The trick? It has to have been posted during that week, if not created during that week. This makes it a little more difficult, but also a lot more […]

Friday Recommendation: Battle Pope

By | Jan 21, 2011 | Columns

This Friday Recommendation has been a long, LONG time coming as it has taken me tragically long to acquire and absorb the fourteen issues of madness that is Battle Pope. Conceived by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore long before The Walking Dead was even a glimmer in their collective mind’s eye, the book was originally […]

Fund It! – DC/Marvel (or Marvel/DC)

By | Jan 19, 2011 | Columns

As Joe Quesada left the position of Marvel’s Editor-In-Chief, people began to wonder: will we see another inter-company crossover between the Big Two anytime soon? If you were not aware, someone at DC (Bob Wayne, if I remember correctly) said that they would not crossover with Marvel until Quesada was out of the big chair […]

Multiversity 101: Can Marvel Get Its Groove Back?

By | Jan 16, 2011 | Columns

Marvel has long been the eight-hundred-pound-gorilla of the comics industry, dominating the sales charts and the box office with their mix of iconic heroes and well told stories. When you really thought of it, there wasn’t really a “Big Two” anymore so much as Marvel and the lagging DC. But then 2010 happened. Well, to […]
