“I Kill Giants”

By | Apr 24, 2018 | Reviews

Having seen that the theatrical release for “I Kill Giants” came out late last month and is now available to stream, I felt this would be a good time to go back and touch upon the series that inspired the movie. Originally released in 2007, Joe Kelly and J.M. Ken Niimura’s 7-issue limited series stands […]

Plastic Man. The man, the myth, the legend. A true hero, one who lives on in the hearts of millions, one who wasn’t missing for close to 6 years during the New 52 and Rebirth. Yes, that’s right. It’s time to talk about that Plastic Man. With his long-overdue reappearance in “Dark Nights: Metal” & […]

“The Sandman” Volume 1: “Preludes & Nocturnes”

By | Apr 2, 2018 | Reviews

With the announcement of a new “Sandman Universe” imprint, being cultivated and overseen by Neil Gaiman, coming in August, I felt it necessary to embark on a reread of of “The Sandman” before the imprint arrives.

“Supreme: The Story of the Year”

By | Mar 27, 2018 | Reviews

There are few things that can be said about Alan Moore that haven’t been said somewhere else, and probably more eloquently than I can manage. Most of those words, though, have been written about his darker, deconstructionist works. “Watchmen” is undoubtedly a classic, tearing super heroes apart, showing the seams at which the super hero […]

“Shade, The Changing Man” #1-3

By | Mar 5, 2018 | Reviews

For a recent ‘book club’ segment on the DC3cast, Vince suggested we read the first ten issues of “Shade, the Changing Man.” I had read these issues in college almost 20 years ago, and so vaguely remembered the events but, obviously, they hit me quite differently on this reading. The three issues that stuck with […]

Created by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker, with the bulk of the art duty for the series coming later from Ryan Ottley, “Invincible” has been a staple of Image Comics and helped to cement Kirkman as a […]

“DC: The New Frontier”

By | Feb 19, 2018 | Reviews

With Rebirth now in full-swing, having not one but two big, delayed event books going on simultaneously, I thought I’d be fun to look back at a story that does more in six issues than a lot of events do in ten. Granted they’re oversized issues but my point still stands. So, without further ado, […]

“Marvel Knights: X-Men”

By | Feb 16, 2018 | Reviews

In 1998 Marvel launched a new imprint known as Marvel Knights. Overseen by  Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti, the line focused on underused characters at the time like “Black Panther,” “The Punisher,” “Daredevil,” and “The Inhumans.” While focusing on realistic and darker tones, the line also sought more independent talent to tell these stories. Creators […]
