  • Comic Review: ‘Star Trek Khan’ #5

    Posted Saturday, March 1st, 2014 01:00 pm GMT -4 by
    Finally, we’ve reached the fifth and final issue of ‘Star Trek: Khan’. I say finally because it was fairly easy to guess the plot from the first issue, and it’s just been a long slog to “I was right from the beginning”. So, if you’ve...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine’ #2

    Posted Saturday, March 1st, 2014 09:00 am GMT -4 by
    In the end of ‘Wolverine’ #1, we’ve seen Logan not only become a petty thug of a criminal but also murder what appeared to be an innocent man in cold blood. It’s a Logan that continues to go against the grain of everything we’ve seen so far of how...

    Posted Tuesday, February 25th, 2014 05:30 pm GMT -4 by
    Beauty is often said to be in the eye of the beholder. What happens when someone can never see the beauty in his imperfections and is addicted to finding that perfect face? This week’s ‘Almost Human’ answers the question. Our phantom-like Bandage Boy stalks another...

    Posted Tuesday, February 25th, 2014 10:00 am GMT -4 by
    Shooting is soon to begin on ‘Batman Vs. Superman‘ the follow-up to ‘Man of Steel‘.  We know that Israeli-born actress Gal Gadot will be portraying Wonder Woman, but we don’t know how large a role she has.  She has already described her workout...
  • ‘Son Of Batman’ Still – Fatherhood Hasn’t Perked Up The Dark Knight

    Posted Monday, February 24th, 2014 07:00 pm GMT -4 by
    Audiences are divided on ‘Justice League: War’, (I liked it but had some issues, our reviewer Brian hated it) but moving forward, most DC animated movies will be set within one set continuity, the next being ‘Son of Batman’ which will showcase the introduction...
  • Eastman And Laird Are Reuniting For A 30th Anniversary Issue Of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’!

    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...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Avengers World’ #3

    Posted Sunday, February 23rd, 2014 02:00 pm GMT -4 by

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #17

    Posted Sunday, February 23rd, 2014 10:00 am GMT -4 by
    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...
  • NBC’s ‘Constantine’ Pilot Has Its Leading Man And It’s Matt Ryan

    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...

    Posted Saturday, February 22nd, 2014 02:00 pm GMT -4 by
    Dionysus has lured Zola and her son Zeke to a French chateau where they are assaulted by a minotaur in the service of Cassandra.  Luckily Wonder Woman and her allies (some tenuous) track them down, but are they in time to save Cassandra’s target? Elsewhere, Apollo, who...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Justice League’ #28

    Posted Saturday, February 22nd, 2014 10:00 am GMT -4 by
    ‘The Forever Evil’ crossover continues with an interesting side tale in which Cyborg goes to recruit a team to help him fight back against the Crime Syndicate and turns to decidedly youthful Will Magnus, who comes across as far from the sometimes crotchety father...
