  • Comic Book Review: ‘Avenging Spider-Man’ #13

    Posted Saturday, October 13th, 2012 05:00 pm GMT -4

    In ‘Avenging Spider-Man’ #12, Spidey teamed up with one of my least-favorite heroes in the Marvel Universe… Deadpool. I read that issue with some wary trepidation but came out a little surprised. The premise was that Spider-Man was trapped inside his dreams with Deadpool and the pair lept from one ridiculous scenario to the next […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Fantastic Four’ #611

    Posted Saturday, October 13th, 2012 01:00 pm GMT -4

    Here it is, true believers! The final (sort of) issue of the “World’s Greatest Comic Magazine”. Rather than continuing directly out of ‘Fantastic Four’ #610, this final issue gives us a tale of Doom… literally. When we last saw Victor Von Doom, he was left stranded on the other side of a portal making a […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Scarlet Spider’ #10

    Posted Friday, October 12th, 2012 06:00 pm GMT -4

    After wrapping up a decent arc with the Rangers in ‘Scarlet Spider’ #9, our hero leaps into his first crossover event. Last week, Marvel releases the one-shot ‘Minimum Carnage Alpha’ that kicks off the “Minimum Carnage” story that weaves between this title and ‘Venom’ before ending in ‘Minimum Carnage Omega’ in November. Since we didn’t […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Green Lantern Corps’ #13

    Posted Friday, October 12th, 2012 12:00 pm GMT -4

    With the Alpha Lantern’s defeated at the finale of ‘Green Lantern Corps’ #12, this issue opens on yet another scene of the “Third Army” spreading across the universe and taking even more beings under their thrall. After the Third Army scene, there’s a couple of pages showing someone (my guess is the Guardians) freeing Xar, […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Batman’ #13

    Posted Thursday, October 11th, 2012 07:00 pm GMT -4

    When the Joker appeared in ‘Detective Comics’ #1 at the beginning of DC’s New 52, I immediately loved their take on the character. Then, they amped things up by having the Joker’s face cut off for the final splash page. Then… nothing. I kept waiting for the Joker to return to the bat-books. It even […]

  • Daniel And Diggle Take Over ‘Action Comics’ And Give Superman A New Look

    Posted Wednesday, October 10th, 2012 05:00 pm GMT -4

    Whether you like him or love him, Grant Morrison has definitely delivered some fresh stories into the Superman mythos with his run on ‘Action Comics’. While Morrison still have another 5 months left of his Superman tales, DC Comics is already gearing up for what comes next. This coming March, the team of Andy Diggle […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Swamp Thing’ #13

    Posted Saturday, October 6th, 2012 04:00 pm GMT -4

    At the finale to ‘Swamp Thing’ #12, Swampy and Animal Man lept into a portal into The Rot to confront Arcane on his home turf. A few moments after their arrival, they learn that The Rot has invaded Earth. To make matters worse, The Rot has played a trick on them. Since time passes differently […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Animal Man’ #13

    Posted Saturday, October 6th, 2012 02:30 pm GMT -4

    After being lost in The Rot in ‘Animal Man’ #12, Buddy Baker returns to Earth this issue only to find the world utterly changed. In the few hours that Buddy spent in The Rot, a full year has passed back on Earth and the creatures of The Rot have taken over the entire planet. Nearly […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Green Lantern’ #13

    Posted Saturday, October 6th, 2012 11:30 am GMT -4

    Last month’s ‘Green Lantern’ #0 gave us the origin of the latest Green Lantern, a car thief named Baz. In that story Baz, who also happens to be a Muslim, stole a van. Unbeknownst to Baz, the van had a bomb inside. When Baz discovered the bomb, he raced to the only place that he knew […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Detective Comics’ #13

    Posted Friday, October 5th, 2012 11:30 am GMT -4

    With the one-shot “zero issue” out of the way, writer John Layman steps in to take the place of the exciting Tony S. Daniel. So how’d he do on his first outing? Let’s find out… While Batman is out on the streets of Gotham cracking skulls, Bruce Wayne is in the community donating to various […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Action Comics’ #13

    Posted Thursday, October 4th, 2012 07:00 pm GMT -4

    With the wrap-up one one arc in last month’s ‘Action Comics’ #12, Grant Morrison takes a break and slows down to give readers a special Halloween issue. The issue opens on the day of the conviction of Xa-Du, the first man condemned to the Phantom Zone. As most villains are wont to do, Xa-Du goes […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ #695

    Posted Thursday, October 4th, 2012 02:02 pm GMT -4

    Last week’s ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ #694 saw the shelving (for now) of Spider-Man’s new sidekick, Alpha. I expect that decision was made because Alpha would’ve been just too much distraction going into a story about the return of the original Hobgoblin. And, as much as I liked Alpha, I honestly can’t say I missed him this […]

  • ‘Primeval: New World’ Is Coming To Syfy And Hulu

    Posted Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 03:00 pm GMT -4

    While Syfy may have its share of great original programing with the shows ‘Alphas’ and ‘Warehouse 13’, the television company has had a lot of its biggest hits with imported shows like the Canadian show ‘Lost Girl’. Syfy is continuing the trend of brining Canadian and UK shows to US audiences with the announcement today […]

  • New ‘Arrow’ Featurette Focuses On Characters

    Posted Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 04:00 pm GMT -4

    With only 8 days left until the premiere of CW’s new comic book based show, ‘Arrow’, fans are clamoring for details. If something is good enough for CW to use as a replacement for ‘Smallville’, then it’s got to be good… right? So far, we’ve had cast photos, behind the scenes set shots, a few […]

  • The ‘Munsters’ Reboot Isn’t Happening… Or Is It?

    Posted Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 03:00 pm GMT -4

    While there were some naysayers (as there are with any reboot), I was kind of looking forward to Bryan Fuller’s new take on the classic Munster family with the drama ‘Mockingbird Lane’. It sounds like it could’ve been an interesting show. Now, according to Deadline, it seems as if we won’t get the chance to […]
