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.

  • Indie Comic Review: ‘Angel Punk’ #0 and Relium Media Interview

    Posted Friday, June 24th, 2011 02:04 pm GMT -4 by
    Stay Tuned for a Giveaway at the End of This Review! I came across this particular book, when Relium Media’s Jake Rossman followed me on Twitter a couple of weeks ago and of course as a good social media nerd, I checked out his profile and clicked on the link in his bio....
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Reverse Flash’ #1 – Flashpoint Tie-in

    Posted Friday, June 24th, 2011 11:01 am GMT -4 by
    I’m going to get the positives of the Reverse Flash Flashpoint tie-in out of the way first. I’m not saying this is a bad book, but I have a few gripes. First, this book is really well written. Scott Kolins did a great job making you feel for Barry Allen as his life...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Legion of Doom’ #1 – Flashpoint Tie-in

    Posted Thursday, June 23rd, 2011 09:12 pm GMT -4 by
    Heatwave, Cyborg, Firestorm, Cluemaster, Plastic Man, Amazo… what do these heroes and villains have in common? Well they are all heavily featured in the Flashpoint Legion of Doom tie-in. This book kicks off with a bang and probably one of the more graphic murders in all...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wonder Woman And The Furies’ – Flashpoint Tie-in

    Posted Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011 11:01 am GMT -4 by
    Wow. Just Wow! If you read one book this week make it Wonder Woman and the Furies. We have seen glimpses of what started this World War Flashpoint, but in this issue we get the entire backstory of Aquaman and Wonder Woman and the tragic end to their wedding ceremony. I’ll...

  • ‘Green Lantern’ From A Fanboy’s Point Of View

    Posted Tuesday, June 21st, 2011 02:02 pm GMT -4 by
    ‘Green Lantern’ hit the silver screen for the first time this weekend to a less than stellar box office receipt. Earning just a fraction of the reported $300 million price tag to make the movie. I was a good little fanboy, on opening night I slammed a 5 Hour Energy,...
  • ‘Beasts of Burden’ to be Developed as a Full-Length Animated Feature Film

    Posted Tuesday, June 21st, 2011 08:03 am GMT -4 by
    Dark Horse’s award-winning breakout hit graphic novel ‘Beasts of Burden’ is now being developed as an animated feature film. When supernatural occurrences sweep the community of Burden Hill, it’s up to a heroic gang of cats and dogs to keep residents safe...
  • TV Review: ‘Falling Skies’ Series Premiere

    Posted Monday, June 20th, 2011 03:15 pm GMT -4 by
    Falling Skies, from Executive Producer Steven Spielberg and staring Noah Wyle, is probably the most ambitious show TNT has attempted. The series picks up during the aftermath of an alien invasion with the resistance calling these aliens Skitters. Skitters are lizard-y bug looking...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Deadman and the Flying Graysons’ – Flashpoint Tie-in

    Posted Monday, June 20th, 2011 11:17 am GMT -4 by
    JT Krul is on my short list of comic book authors to follow no matter what they write. That being said, this book was a no brainer to pick up this week. The story is about Haley’s Circus traveling across Europe bringing entertainment to the huddled masses. The masses, in...
  • Star Trek Comics are Back!

    Posted Sunday, June 19th, 2011 11:01 am GMT -4 by
    The Star Trek Universe will never be the same following the events of the game-changing, 2009 blockbuster film. Beginning with Star Trek #1 in September, IDW Publishing will join forces with Star Trek writer/producer Roberto Orci to explore the implications of the alternate...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Batgirl’ #22

    Posted Saturday, June 18th, 2011 09:12 pm GMT -4 by
    With all of the shake ups coming in the DCU later this Fall, taking Bryan Q. Miller and his wonderfully written Stephanie Brown out of the Batgirl suit is just criminal. No offense Gail Simone. That being said, the new Batgirl #1 is one of the 52 new titles that I will be picking...
  • Comic Book Review: Abin Sur Movie Prequel One-Shot

    Posted Saturday, June 18th, 2011 02:02 pm GMT -4 by
    Green Lantern hits theaters this week and over the past couple of weeks DC Comics has released One-Shot issue prequels for some characters: Sinestro, Tomar-Re, Kilowog, Hal Jordan and now Abin Sur. If you don’t know, Abin Sur was the Green Lantern of Sector 2814 before...
  • Video Game Review: inFamous 2

    Posted Saturday, June 18th, 2011 12:01 pm GMT -4 by
    When the Playstation Network went down four days after I purchased my PS3 I was a little disappointed, to say the least. However, when the PSN came back online and Sony offered two free games I was excited to see inFamous was one of the choices. After downloading the first inFamous...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Red Robin’ #24

    Posted Friday, June 17th, 2011 02:35 pm GMT -4 by
    Tim Drake is really, REALLY good at figuring things out. It is one of the reasons he is one of the top three detectives in the entire DC Universe. Why is this important? Well, when you are a teenaged hero with no superpowers, surrounded by a secret society of assassins who have...
  • ‘Falling Skies’ Book Sells Out!

    Posted Thursday, June 16th, 2011 09:12 pm GMT -4 by
    If you read either of Christine’s two previous articles about Falling Skies, you know the focus of the story is on Tom Mason a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. His wife was killed in the initial attack, and one of his three sons has been captured...
