About Brian Tudor

Brian Tudor profile photo
One of Brian’s earliest Sci-Fi memory is the Rancor from Jedi, even before that he could be seen running around the yard with an imaginary Luke Skywalker, stuffed Chewbacca in tow, fighting the dark side. Frank Herbert’s Dune further refined his Sci-Fi taste and the love affair was set in place. It was the discovery of comic books and superheroes that put him over the edge. After a brief hiatus from comics, Kevin Smith’s run on Green Arrow brought him back to the land of tights, flight, super speed and gadgets galore! Currently his home office is littered with action figures, posters, DVD’s and comic book, all threatening to overtake him at any time. After years as a DC Fanboy he is learning to love Marvel Comic's again, especially now that Greg Rucka is writing The Punisher.
Favorites: Farscape, Star Wars, Dune, Robin/Nightwing, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, BSG, Falling Skies, Thundercats, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Cyclops, Iceman, Nightcrawler

  • A Fanboy’s Love Of Action Figures

    Posted Sunday, August 28th, 2011 09:00 pm GMT -4 by
    Like a lot of geeks, nerds and fanboys (fangirls too, you gals spend some serious coin on collectables), I love action figures. If I had to choose between collecting comics and toys, it would be a hard decision, but I’m pretty sure toys would win out in the end. My home...

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Captain America’ #2

    Posted Sunday, August 21st, 2011 01:00 pm GMT -4 by
    Writing Captain America seems like it should be pretty easy. He’s a patriotic fellow with super powers, an indestructible shield and spent the better part of a century frozen in a block of ice. What’s not to get right? There have been a lot of bad Captain America...

    There are only 2 weeks left in the Flashpoint, and then everything changes… again when the DC Universe reboots. To say the third issues of most of the tie-ins (with the exception of ‘Batman’ and ‘Frankenstein’) have been a disappointment would be...

  • Falling Skies – My Opinion Of The First Season

    Posted Wednesday, August 17th, 2011 11:00 am GMT -4 by
    This past Sunday night felt a little empty, I don’t have HBO so I couldn’t fill that void with True Blood and Entourage; instead I had a mini-Falling Skies marathon at my house. I watched the last 3 episodes of season 1, and while it wasn’t the same as having...
