  • Sif Goes To Battle In New Set Photos From ‘Thor 2’

    Posted Tuesday, September 11th, 2012 03:00 pm GMT -4

    Yesterday, we got a look at some on-set photos from Marvel’s upcoming ‘Thor: The Dark World’. Those photos were distant shots and, while we could see crowds of warriors, we couldn’t really tell what’s going on. Well today, via Blastr, we get some more set photos… and these are much more character-centric. We get a […]

    Posted Sunday, September 9th, 2012 12:00 pm GMT -4

    This “before New 52” prequel story takes a look back at the origins of the Swamp Thing, both the previous incarnation and the recent rebirth of Alec Holland. Since the launch of the New 52, the ‘Swamp Thing’ and ‘Animal Man’ titles have been intertwined and this issue is no different. However, in an odd […]

    Posted Saturday, September 8th, 2012 01:00 pm GMT -4

    In this “before New 52” special #0 edition of ‘Animal Man’, we’re given a look at the origins of both Animal Man and his daughter Maxine… and a few hints at what’s to come in the “Rotworld” storyline. The story opens in the Congo where a group of poachers is facing off with the previous […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Venom’ #24

    Posted Saturday, September 8th, 2012 10:35 am GMT -4

    In last month’s ‘Venom’ #23, Agent Venom was on a Secret Avengers mission to spy on an occult group called the Department of Occult Armaments. Things turned sour on our hero when Daimon Hellstrom shows up and demons start possessing people… including Venom! As this issue opens, the demonic Venom is looking for something to […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Phantom Stranger’ #0

    Posted Friday, September 7th, 2012 07:00 pm GMT -4

    With DC’s New 52, the company has reintroduced a lot of their more supernatural characters back into starring roles. We got the return of Swamp Thing and Animal Man in their own titles along with a special occult version of the Justice League, aptly titled ‘Justice League Dark’, that included such stalwarts as John Constantine […]

    Posted Friday, September 7th, 2012 03:00 pm GMT -4

    In this special issue, we’re treated to another “before New 52” story detailing events that happened before DC’s companywide relaunch of their classic titles. This issue, we get a look at a young Bruce Wayne and a portion of his training in the Himalayas on his path to become Batman. As the story begins, Bruce […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Green Lantern’ #0

    Posted Friday, September 7th, 2012 02:00 pm GMT -4

    Rather than continuing the regular ‘Green Lantern’ series or giving “before New 52” flashbacks as some of this week’s other Zero Month issues are doing, ‘Green Lantern’ #0 introduces readers to the newest Green Lantern. His name is Baz and it looks like he’ll have an uphill climb to being an accepted Green Lantern. This […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ #693

    Posted Thursday, September 6th, 2012 05:00 pm GMT -4

    After Spider-Man’s new sidekick Alpha was introduced in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ #692, I wasn’t sure where this story would go, but what happened this issue isn’t it… and that’s a wonderful thing. After the events of last issue, Alpha had taken down the old Fantastic Four villain Giganto with a single punch. As this issue […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Action Comics’ #0

    Posted Thursday, September 6th, 2012 03:00 pm GMT -4

    In ‘Action Comics’ #12, Superman squared off with a cosmic superbeing called Captain Comet. The good Captain claimed that the Earth is doomed there was nothing that Superman could do to stop it. This issue mostly tosses all of that story out the window and gives us a couple of short one-shots called “before New […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Green Lantern Annual’ #1

    Posted Monday, September 3rd, 2012 10:00 am GMT -4

    Continuing where ‘Green Lantern’ #12 left off, this issue begins with Hal Jordan and Sinestro at the mercy of Black Hand. The duo’s rings are completely drained and Hand has buried the alive in a cemetery. Never one to stay down for long, Hal digs his way back out of his own grave to confront Hand… […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Justice League’ #12

    Posted Sunday, September 2nd, 2012 03:00 pm GMT -4

    This is the issue that made news last week when it was announced the Superman and Wonder Woman were to become a couple in the New 52 Universe. So does it deliver a good story? Or is DC hoping it sells based on that hype alone? Let’s find out! In the closing pages of ‘Justice […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Superman Annual’ #1

    Posted Sunday, September 2nd, 2012 02:00 pm GMT -4

    When the Helspont/Daemonite story wrapped up in ‘Superman’ #8, I thought we were done with this tripe. Apparently we weren’t. This (sadly) oversized annual issue opens on the Dremo homeworld. Prince Artus’ wife has just died in childbirth. Since they were Daemonites, this should not have occurred. Artus goes before his mother, the Queen, to […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Avenging Spider-Man’ #11

    Posted Friday, August 31st, 2012 12:30 pm GMT -4

    Since this series began, it’s been used like the classic ‘Marvel Team-Up’. Each issue, Spidey has teamed up with one of his Avengers teammates. This issue, we get a little different team as Peter spends the entire issue with Aunt May. Going in, I was expecting it to be a meeting between Aunt May and […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘FF’ #21

    Posted Friday, August 31st, 2012 11:30 am GMT -4

    After the catch-up vignette issue of ‘FF’ #20, this issue begins to ramp up Jonathan Hickman’s final story arc of this title… and boy what a bang up tale it looks like it’s going to be! As the issue opens, the Future Foundation are in space watching as the Inhumans return. The Foundation discuss what […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Detective Comics Annual’ #1

    Posted Thursday, August 30th, 2012 05:00 pm GMT -4

    This annual edition of ‘Detective Comics’ gives us an story set in the aftermath of the recently concluded ‘Night of the Owls’ storyline. During that storyline (in ‘Detective Comics’ #9 if you want to be specific), Batman paid a visit to the infamous Arkham Asylum. In that adventure, we were introduced to the Black Mask… or […]
