Saturday Showdown: Steve vs. Bucky

By and | Oct 31, 2009 | Columns

For the second edition of our Saturday Showdown series, Matt and I discuss one of the hottest topics in comics today: should Steve Rogers or Bucky Barnes be Captain America after Captain America: Reborn. Matt felt very passionately that Steve is the one and only Captain America, while I took a slightly different approach. Which […]

Friday Recommendation: Hellsing Vol. 1

By | Oct 30, 2009 | Columns

If the fact he’s packing massive heat wasn’t enough badassery for you, he’s also a bloodsucker.Article originally written by Jewels I think this is befitting as my first recommendation, as well as my first post in general. I’ve always been a huge fan of this franchise, and it IS October after all. >:D Bear in […]

Character Spotlight: Psylocke

By | Oct 28, 2009 | Columns

In last the premiere Saturday Showdown between Matt and David, something was brought up that hurt me to my very core. David dissed my girl Psylocke. Everyone who’s a regular reader knows she’s my favorite X-Man. and well, I think it calls for a Character Spotlight. The woman known has Elisabeth “Betsy” Braddock has a […]

Small Press Spotlight: Barry Ween, Boy Genius

By | Oct 27, 2009 | Columns

This week on my Small Press Spotlight series, I’d like to highlight an older series (it ran from 1999 to 2003…sort of) that is woefully under read. Before I announce the title, I do want to say a few caveats: the first three issue series was released by decidedly not small press Image Comics, but […]

Friday Recommendation: Detective Comics

By | Oct 23, 2009 | Columns

This week I am stepping in for fellow writer Brandon, as he has engagements that prevent him from being able to get a Friday Recommendation to you, our fair readers. However, that works out for all of us as that means you get a double dose of David, as this week and next week will […]

LCBS Spotlight: Comicopia

By | Oct 20, 2009 | Columns

It was a lazy Sunday. Sitting on the couch with my girlfriend watching old episodes of LOST while it rained outside, I found myself surfing the internet and reading about upcoming comics. As I flitted around the internet, I found myself gravitating toward a website I had seen before – the website to the comic […]

Today we have a new feature for you here at Multiversity Comics. Every Tuesday, we’ll write up a breakdown on an original graphic novel or a comic series that has caught our interest with its high quality, but that series has to come from a small press publisher. While we love our comics from the […]

Character Spotlight: Maggott

By | Oct 18, 2009 | Columns

One character I love that never got his chance to shine was named Japeth. More frequently known as Maggott. Introduced during the mid 90’s right around the time of Operation Zero Tolerance Maggott quickly joined the X-Men. Then even quicker was booted and sent down to Generation X. Sadly, his stint with Generation X was […]

Friday Recommendation: JLA Earth 2

By | Oct 16, 2009 | Columns

It’s no secret that we here on Multiversity Comics love our Grant Morrison. More often than not, we find his books the most challenging, the most engaging, and more importantly, the most fun. And when he’s paired with an artist like Frank Quitely, well something special happens where the sum is greater than its parts. […]

Character Anti-Spotlight: The Red Hulk

By | Oct 14, 2009 | Columns

When we first came up with the concept of Character Spotlights, it was in order to help give certain characters a boost in fandom. Of course, David managed to sneak in there a little bit of an anti-spotlight one day (in regards to The Sentry), and thus the Anti-Spotlight was born. Something has been brewing […]

LCBS Spotlight: New England Comics

By | Oct 13, 2009 | Columns

This is a new feature I’d been meaning to implement for a while now, and with our site hits picking up, I believe it’s definitely time to bring it out! The single most important thing to any comic book nerd anywhere on the planet is his LCBS, or Local Comic Book Shop/Store. Without these, there […]

The Dangers Of Christopher Nolan’s Batman

By | Oct 11, 2009 | Columns

I have often stated, much to the annoyance of everyone around me, that I don’t think Christopher Nolan’s Batman films are all that great. Sure, they’re well acted and well written, but in contexts of the comic book source material, they’re highly inaccurate and put a veil over new reader’s eyes as to what Batman […]

Welcome to Emitown

By | Oct 10, 2009 | Columns

As a fan of comics, you’re quick to realize how new favorites come in the most surprising of places. Whether it’s bizarre quarterly books like Brahm Revel’s black and white ape Vietnam soldier epic Guerrillas, superimposed Final Fantasy sprite comedic powerhouse 8-bit Theater, or graphic novels you read about on blogs like Nick Abadzis’ Laika, […]

By | Oct 9, 2009 | Columns

With Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ current collaboration Criminal restarting this week as the initial issue of their new arc The Sinners is being released, I could only think of one book to recommend this Friday: Sleeper. Sleeper was the second collaboration between Brubaker and Phillips and it was the first thing I ever read […]

Friday Recommendation: Invincible

By | Oct 2, 2009 | Columns

I’ve recently gone on somewhat of a graphic novel buying spree. I have this HUGE list of graphic novels I believe I have to own (actually typed out in full in a nice Excell spreadsheet) and I’ve been going to different comic book stores seeing what deals I can get on books. I’ve picked up […]
