Stan’s Back

By | Feb 23, 2010 | News

The internet has recently received a new teaser in the form of a simple black image with some text: Stan’s Back. Obviously, sites are buzzing with the possibility of what could this mean.

Axe Cop: Episode One

By | Feb 22, 2010 | News

As if Axe Cop could get any better, they’ve now released the first full motion comic. Better yet than the motion comic itself? The unbelievably amazing theme song that goes with it. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get “Axe Coooop…Axe Coooop” with the wonderfully cheesy 80’s instrumental behind it out of my […]

What If Inglourious Basterds Was A Comic?

By | Feb 20, 2010 | News

And what if Jack Kirby drew it? While scouring the web, I found a collection of five covers representing the five “parts” of the film Inglourious Basterds by Quentin Tarentino. If you haven’t seen it yet, I don’t know what to tell you. You’re missing an incredible film. In fact, you should see it for […]

Some people say, “Matt, you consistently say that your site can only be related to comic books, yet you review and talk about Doctor Who a lot. Why is that?” 1) there is a Doctor Who comic, 2) Grant Morrison wrote some of it, and 3) shut up! With that in mind, there is a […]

Marvel Covers the Winter Olypmics… Kind Of

By | Feb 20, 2010 | News

As most people know, I’m a big fan of Marvel’s What The? It’s basically Robot Chicken, but only Marvel. It also has a big emphasis on MODOK, spawning a whole new era of MODOK hilarity. Now, Marvel has decided to cover the Winter Olympics through it’s What The? feature, and the results are amusing, confusing, […]

Support Emitown!

By | Feb 19, 2010 | News

You may remember a while ago when David talked about a webcomic he liked here on our site, called EmiTown. We even talked to the eponymous creator, Emi Lenox. To be quite honest, any comic that features a protagonist who loves cats as much as I do gets the official Multiversity Comics stamp of approval. […]

Sean Phillips Goes to The Dark Tower

By | Feb 17, 2010 | News

For me, Marvel’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series has mostly been one based around my appreciation of the art. While four of the arcs have been astoundingly well illustrated by Jae Lee with the aid of Richard Isanove, the fourth mini The Fall of Gilead was found lacking by yours truly. While Isanove’s […]
