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 […]

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 […]

For one thing, DC wanted to set a much bigger precedent into their movie department, and with the massive success of the Dark Knight, who can blame them?

By | Sep 19, 2009 | Columns

Those who followed our reviews this week will surely have noticed me covering a brand new Moon Knight series entitled Vengeance of the Moon Knight. I gave it a pretty positive review and stated how much I enjoyed the character, and that a Spotlight was in order. Well, here’s the Spotlight! I figured it can’t […]

Friday Recommendation: Hitman

By | Sep 18, 2009 | Columns

Garth Ennis is one of the most prolific writers out there, as his gritty work on Vertigo titles like Preacher and Hellblazer and his MAX run on the Punisher have proven to be some of the most critically acclaimed work from the past twenty years. However, in my opinion his second best work (besides my […]

Friday Recommendation: Planetary

By | Sep 11, 2009 | Columns

To be quite honest, I’m shocked that this hasn’t been recommended by any of us yet. I know that I personally should’ve known better. Long before I even realized who he was, whenever I read or someone said the name Warren Ellis I knew in my head that this correlates to “the author of Planetary.” […]

Friday Recommendation: Nextwave

By | Aug 21, 2009 | Columns

Warren Ellis is one of the most disturbed, bizarre, hilarious, and utterly brilliant writers in the history of mainstream comics. His works are always on the precipice of insanity, but somehow he always pulls it together to make not only a coherent story but what are frequently the most well written and forward thinking comics […]

Character Spotlight: Darkhawk

By | Aug 17, 2009 | Columns

For anyone following War of Kings, you miiiight have noticed that a certain 90’s character has returned to prominence, even surpassing his role he held when he originally had his own eponymous title: Darkhawk. He was one of my favorite characters when I was a kid(even surpassing Spider-Man), so you can bet I’m excited he’s […]

Author Retrospective: Geoff Johns

By | Aug 16, 2009 | Columns

It’s pretty much impossible these days to go a week without seeing Geoff Johns’ name on a comic book. I would say without a doubt that he’s one of the biggest guns in the DC arsenal at the moment, and probably one of the most important young writers of today, and I’m not the only […]

One of the two comic giants of our era, Marvel has been publishing quality comics now since 1939, completely defining a whole era of comics (along with their biggest competitor).
