  • Comic Book Review: ‘What If? Age of Ultron’ #4

    I have been incredibly critical of this series from the start, but I feel like my criticisms have been legitimate. For a book to be called ‘What If? Age of Ultron’, you’d expect Ultron to play a part in it, right? Well, we haven’t seen the maniacal machine since the first issue (unless you count […]

    And so it ends, the most sprawling storyline from ‘The Walking Dead’ comic series so far, “All Out War”, which finally had Rick’s group from Alexandria, teaming up with Hilltop and The Kingdom in an effort to take down Negan and his Saviors.  So how did it turn out?  To be honest, it was a […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Secret Origins’ #1

    I realize the expression ‘Secret Origins’ has a long and proud history with DC Comics, but here it’s a complete misnomer.  Considering that the New 52 for the most part kicked off “five years later”, the idea of revisiting some character’s beginnings might help differentiate them from prior interpretations, but in this first issue, we […]

    DC Comics’ newest animated feature ‘Son of Batman’ hits store shelves on May 6th and is already generating a lot of positive buzz among those lucky enough to have seen it early.  The story is based on Grant Morrison’s ‘Batman Inc.’ run, which revealed that Bruce Wayne had fathered a child with his enemy Talia […]

    The Mighty Marvel Amalgamate have announced a new One-Shot featuring that rascally rodent, “Rocket Raccoon” and his lumbering cohort, the colossal conifer Groot! Former “Nova” artist Andrea Di Vito will be penciling this comic while Will Corono Pilgrim provides the writing.

After taking life into his own hands and deciding to join forces with S.H.I.E.L.D. to develop new technology while acting as an asset in the field and that while Hulk breaks what Banner makes in ‘Indestructible Hulk’, the series recently came to an end with the scientist getting shot in […]

    Well, it’s safe to say that I’m pretty disappointed in ‘What If? Age of Ultron’. Instead of offering alternate versions of the largely disappointing Marvel crossover, we’ve just been getting stories about what would happen if certain Avengers had died at random points in history. For instance, in the last issue, we learned what would […]

    Usually when you picture Spider-Man and, more specifically his costume, you picture something basically the same as this image, rendered by the legendary John Romita Sr.  Originally designed by Steve Ditko, Spidey’s uniform is one of the most unique in all of comics.  For one thing, his face is completely concealed, cutting out any chances […]
