    I think my favorite part of Warren Ellis at the wheel of a comic is that you really never know what you are going to get. Honestly, as I’m not a loyal Image reader anymore aside from a few key titles I had no idea what this was even about but the cover art drew […]

    Anyone who followed the crossover event of ‘Infinity’ knows that Thanos is currently sitting frozen in time in a prison created by his Inhuman son. We know it is only a matter of time before he gets out and this gives us a small prelude of things to come as it takes a look back at […]

    While I’ve been continuing to read this book, I’ve been neglecting to keep it in my review queue with how little I’ve been enjoying it. So what brings me to throwing it back into the mix this week? Have they finally decided to do something original with Wolverine now that he is killable without his […]

    I keep waiting for ‘Ms. Marvel’ to disappoint me. But after four months, I’m happy to say that I’m still just as hooked. Do I have any idea where the plot is going? No! But, it doesn’t matter, the characters and the depth of the scenes is enough to keep going. Last issue, Kamala Kahn […]

    In the last issue of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ we saw the entire team get picked off one at a time by various enemies that they’ve had over the years. Star-Lord’s father appears to have put this into motion. As he was the one that had his son captured he gives his son the […]

    Back at this year’s C2E2, Marvel Comics revealed a lot of awesome things coming out in the next few months like the various ‘Original Sin’ tie-ins featuring heroes like Spider-Man, the Invaders, the Fantastic Four, and more. However, like they tend to do, the House of Ideas left us wondering once again as they teased […]

    The real Peter Parker isn’t only back in his own body, but he’s back in his own comic as well. After spending some time sidelined in his own head thanks to Doctor Octopus, the truly superior Spider-Man returned and is once again the star of  ‘Amazing Spider-Man.’ In the first issue, Pete plays catch up […]

    Marvel’s intergalactic murder mystery returns this week with the next exciting chapter of ‘Original Sin’ from Jason Aaron. When we last left Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, they tapped the expertise of Nick Fury to aid in the investigation of Uatu the Watcher’s murder. After examining the body and seeing that his eyes were missing, even more […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #21

    After a bit of slowness, ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #20 put the series back into an upswing. I really think things need to come to ahead for some of the ongoing plot lines. Do they in this issue? Not quite. However, it is still a fun read and it made it look like at least one plot line […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Justice League’ #30

    Introducing the new Justice League, led by Lex Luthor and including Shazam and Captain Cold.  And minus Superman and The Flash, both of whom presumably quit when their arch enemies were admitted to the team. The new team debuts, but then the book jumps back four days.  Following the aftermath of ‘Forever Evil,’ Lex Luthor […]

  • Is ‘The Middle’ Star Eden Sher The Next Marvel Superheroine?

    Actress Eden Sher who plays awkward Sue Heck on the ABC sitcom ‘The Middle’ tweeted that she visited the offices of Marvel Studios for what was supposed to be a brief meeting, but which turned into a three-hour, immersive crash-course in… at least a sampling of Marvel history. Check out her very leading tweet below: […]

    Things are really shifting in the DC Universe after the invasion by the Crime Syndicate from Earth 3, but in this issue we learn more about that world and the destruction that caused these vicious super beings to flee to the “main” DC Universe.  Nightwing has played a central role… mostly as a hostage, whose […]

    In Wolverine and the X-Men’ #3, I felt that the series was really struggling to get us involved in this whole future Phoenix and Apocalypse mess that may or may not happen in the future. In the latest issue we’re still watching the time travelers try to have their way with the X-Men though as […]

    After the trials and tribulations of bringing Nightcrawler back from the dead, we had the first major story arc come to a close in “Amazing X-Men’ #6. Before we jump into an entirely new story, we are getting a filler issue by Kathryn Immonen instead of a direct passing of the writing torch from Jason […]
