    Posted Monday, February 24th, 2014 06:00 pm GMT -4 by
    I can’t believe that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been around for 30 already. That’s three followed by a zero folks. Sure, many of the fans of the franchise came from later iterations from the cartoon but the darker comics that it was all based off of is...

    In the latest issue we don’t directly continue on from Magneto’s exploits in ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #16 and most likely won’t be seeing him again until his solo series launches later this year. For now we have another issue that really focuses on the students...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Nova’ #13

    Posted Saturday, February 22nd, 2014 06:00 pm GMT -4 by
    If you are looking for a jumping in point on the series, I have to hand it to Marvel for really pulling it off with this issue. On top of that I have to admit that Gerry Duggan has an interesting talent of keeping me interested in this book. I was thinking about dropping it but...

    Posted Saturday, February 22nd, 2014 04:00 pm GMT -4 by
    It looks as if NBC has found their John Constantine.  Matt Ryan (‘Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior’) is said to be finalizing a deal to play the roguish, quick-witted supernatural investigator.  The actor is actually Welsh, so unlike Keanu Reeves, at least he can...

  • The Black Widow Sheds Her Uniform In ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’

    Posted Friday, February 21st, 2014 04:00 pm GMT -4 by
