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 […]

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, […]

Friday Recommendation: Sleeper

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 […]

With the announcement that DC was becoming DC Entertainment, many things were inevitably set up to change. 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? The new president of DC Entertainment Diane Nelson has stated […]

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.” […]
