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

    Well, the premiere of the of the all new ‘ThunderCats’ was quite an adventure. I’m going to say this right up front… if you didn’t like this premiere, you probably don’t like anything and are super critical of everything. Ah, that’s over; now, HOLY SH*T was this a good way to open a series. This […]

    If you read my review of ‘Project Superman’ #1 , you know I was left feeling a bit confused by the issue. There was really no clear sense of the timing of things. I am happy to say my suspicions about an explanation coming in this issue came to fruition. I have really enjoyed the […]

    As an Ohio resident, and proud member of the Ohio Mafia (we Ohioians are everywhere, so look out), hearing the news of the Siegle & Shuster Society attempting to have a specialized Superman license plate created is awesome. This is just the news I needed to hear to get me to update my licence plates (I’ve had […]

    Marvel is offering an incentive to retailers that involves destroying DC Comics, and not just on the balance sheets or at the box office. Basically, for every 50 copies of any of the ‘Flashpoint tie-in #1′s retailers rip the cover from, Marvel will send them a variant cover of ‘Fear Itself #6′ by artist Ed McGuinness. This isn’t […]

  • ‘Falling Skies: Sanctuary Part 2′ – Recap

    Posted Monday, July 25th, 2011 03:00 pm GMT -4
    by

    Hey soldier! Leave those kids alone!… One of my favorite things about ‘Falling Skies’ is that no matter how dire things are with the Skitter occupation… a**holes are a**holes. Even the kids aren’t immune to the pratfalls of humanity, not to mention the traitorous humans trading kids to the Skitters. Take young Jimmy Boland (played […]

    Before we get to the review of the ‘Flashpoint Legion of Doom #2,’ you need to know a few things gentle readers. First, the Flashpoint Universe is a bleak and violent place. This reality is more dark and harsh than the DC Universe that preceded the Flashpoint. Second, Heatwave (the lead villain in this book) […]

    Other than a couple of preview pages from the all new ‘Justice League #1′ featuring Batman and Green Lantern, and a new look at Grant Morrison’s Action Comics’ ‘Superman,’ there isn’t anything new in this book that you can’t find on DC Comics’ blog The Source. I think the purpose of this book was to […]
