  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New X-Factor’ #2

    Posted Sunday, January 26th, 2014 04:30 pm GMT -4 by
    The return (or perhaps better word would be rebirth) of X-Factor in ‘All-New X-Factor’ #1 gave us a new X-Factor, a new conglomerate called Serval Industries, and a new pyscho experimenting on mutants. None of these are particularly new ideas but all of them were...

    Posted Sunday, January 26th, 2014 02:00 pm GMT -4 by
    There is so much crazy stuff going on in Jonathan Hickman’s ‘Avengers’ right now. It’s gotten so crazy that the action had to spinoff into ‘Avengers World’ and Nick Spencer had to step in to help carry the load of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. However, that doesn’t...

    Posted Saturday, January 25th, 2014 03:00 pm GMT -4 by
    I… just realized, and maybe this has been there for a while, maybe from the beginning, but I just realized that the “bondage”/’S&M” elements that riddled the original Wonder Woman stories by creator William Moulton Marston are back in full effect...
