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.

  • ‘Falling Skies’: Love and the Apocalypse

    Posted Friday, July 15th, 2011 02:00 pm GMT -4

    In the Science Fiction, or Sci-Fi (definitely not SyFy), genre there is a popular theme for characters in the post apocalypse landscape of shows like ‘Battlestar Galactica’, ‘The Walking Dead’ and now even ‘Falling Skies’; love. In ‘BSG’, the newly appointed Madam President of the, now defunct, 12 Colonies said it best, “They better start […]

    Posted Thursday, July 14th, 2011 09:01 am GMT -4

    The war is over. This issue is full of twists, turns and surprising ring selection choices. From the cover to the final panel of this book, there is only one word to describe it… EPIC. There wasn’t a lot of fall out from the previous chapters of the ‘War of the Green Lanterns’ (i.e. John […]

  • Comic Book Review: Batgirl #23

    Posted Wednesday, July 13th, 2011 09:12 pm GMT -4

    This was a big week for comic books, and while the penultimate ‘Batgirl’ issue starring Stephanie Brown is not the most Earth-shattering book from my pull-list, it is the one I was the most interested in reading. After last month’s jaunt across the pond to jolly old England, where our favorite snarky heroine saved time and […]

  • ‘Falling Skies’ Silent Kill – Recap

    Wow! Hal Mason is a bad ass. First, to lay there all calm and steady, not wetting his pants as the Skitter laid its hand on his forehead during his undercover mission to save his brother Ben. Second, because he took down a Skitter with little more than a pocket knife and his wits. It […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Batman Knight of Vengeance’ #2 – Flashpoint Tie-in
