  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Force’ #6

    Posted Sunday, June 29th, 2014 04:30 pm GMT -5

    In ‘X-Force’ #5 things were looking bad for our heroes. As the first book closed all of them had been captured and Cable was blown to pieces. Of course for those keeping count, this was by no means the first time that we’ve seen Cable supposedly die in this series. There is no resolution to […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine’ #9

    Posted Sunday, June 29th, 2014 12:00 pm GMT -5

    The story line that the latest ‘Wolverine’ series has been selling us so far has been pretty weak at best. However, with only “Three Months to Die” kicking in, Cornell is finally starting to show us that there is potential here. While not perfectly executed, we see Wolverine on his ten millionth journey towards finding […]

    Posted Saturday, June 28th, 2014 10:00 pm GMT -5

    It’s a risky move taking your main character out of the main setting, and that’s what ‘Revival’ has done this issue. Whether or not it’s going to pay, time can only tell. Most reviews on this move have been positive, citing that it’s good to see what’s going on in the outside world, and stop […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Trees’ #2

    Posted Saturday, June 28th, 2014 07:00 pm GMT -5

    The first issue of Warren Ellis’ new Image Comic series ‘Trees was visually stunning and a great introduction to an Earth where aliens have landed on our planet. Not only have they landed, but as far as they are concerned humanity doesn’t seem to matter in the slightest as they don’t appear to acknowledge our […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Justice League’ #31

    Posted Saturday, June 28th, 2014 03:00 pm GMT -5

    Lex Luthor has decided he wants to join the Justice League.  After Nightwing’s identity was exposed, it was fairly simple for Luthor to trace this back to Batman/Bruce Wayne in an attempt to blackmail his way onto the team.  In an interesting twist, we get to see Bruce Wayne (and Alfred) in action as opposed […]

    Posted Saturday, June 28th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -5

    Continuing on from the mess we saw the Guardians of the Galaxy in from issue #15, we don’t apparently have to wait long to see how all of the stories are going to play out. While for the most part we do still see our heroes separately, in this issue progress is made and by the end […]

  • Comic Review: ‘Ms. Marvel’ #5

    Posted Friday, June 27th, 2014 01:00 pm GMT -5

    There is going to be a day that I do not give 5 atoms of 5, but today is not that day. For as unreal as this series is (you know, what with the main villain having the head of a Cockatoo, and the fact that Kamala is able to change shape, size, and overall […]

  • Kevin Smith Sounds Off On Jason Momoa As Aquaman

    Posted Wednesday, June 25th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -5

    Oh surprise, Kevin Smith has an opinion.  Just kidding!  The famed director/podcast host has been in the know in terms of DC’s upcoming movies, including the currently in-production ‘Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ but even he seemed thrown by the abrupt casting of ‘Game of Thrones’ star Jason Momoa as Aquaman, the King of […]
