“Zero Hour:” A Crisis In Recapping, Part 9

By | Oct 21, 2021 | Reviews

Folks, you’ve heard about it whispered in the corners of DC fandom. You’ve been confused at the odd reference to it in those “modern comics” you devour week after week. What in the darned heck is “Zero Hour”? Why is it called that? Why is it numbered backward? Who is Extant and should I really […]

“Phoenix Song: Echo” #1

By | Oct 21, 2021 | Reviews

While perhaps not a universally beloved concept, something is interesting about creating a legacy character, seeing how the powers and ideals change based on who is wearing the mantle of hero. There are, of course, some cliches when writing a hero filling in the shoes of a famous predecessor, the feeling of not being strong […]

Injustice

By | Oct 20, 2021 | Reviews

Normally after watching an abysmal failure like Injustice the question of “why” comes up. Why does this exist? The economic logic that satisfies this question fails to completely explain the shortcomings of this film but begins shine a light on them. To put the question of quality aside for a second, it makes all the […]

“No One Left to Fight 2” #1

By | Oct 15, 2021 | Reviews

I remember when Dragon Ball Z hit American shores and became the one show every kid between the ages of 5-13 fell in love with. If I could count the number of times I saw people try to imitate the kamehameha I would be wealthy beyond words. Personally, I never got into it, but I […]

“Chicken Devil” #1

By | Oct 8, 2021 | Reviews

“Chicken Devil” #1 from AfterShock comics is full of violence, high-lunacy, glitteringly good illustration, and a plot just wild enough to pull us in for the long haul. In other words, it’s finger-licking good. Think Sin City meets The Big Lebowski meets Hobo with a Shotgun meets…a McDonald’s commercial, I guess? “Chicken Devil” #1 is […]
