    The days of ‘Superior Spider-Man’ are numbered. There are only a few issues left before the return of Peter Parker and ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ next month, but there is just so much that has to happen between now and then and I don’t know how it’s going to work! In the last round of Spider-Man vs. […]

    In late 2012, an all-new movement was created by Marvel Comics when Kelly Sue DeConnick promoted Carol Danvers from Ms. Marvel to Captain Marvel in ‘Captain Marvel’ #1. At that moment, the Carol Corps was born along with one of the most popular comic book series today. However, in the days leading up to issue […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New X-Men’ #24: ‘The Trial Of Jean Grey’ Part 5

    In the last issue of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ we ended with with a lot of talking and not much moving forward with the actual plot. This issue? That changes as it is pure on plot movement and action all the way through! My only complaint? Unlike ‘Battle of the Atom‘ when I was this […]

  • Comic Review: ‘The X-Files: Season 10′ #10

    I’m indifferent to this issue and I don’t want to be. The mysterious Cigarette Smoking Man (CMS) who works for a sinister shadow government intent on stalling Mulder’s efforts is one of the most enduring images from ‘The X-Files’, and this issue is completely dedicated to him. I should be excited. And then some of […]

    Back in the year 2000, Marvel decided to launch a new imprint known as Ultimate Marvel to reimagine their beloved characters and update them for a new generation. This new line was made possible by the likes of Brian Michael Bendis, Warren Ellis, Mark Millar, and Joe Quesada and featured all-new origins for heroes such […]

    In the first issue of the new ‘Loki’ series it was clearly established that he wasn’t going to be playing by the rules of the Loki that we’ve always known. In the second issue he’s already betraying the All-Mother to put together a group of individuals to make sure he can get what he wants. […]

    With wrter Jason Aaron off and Jason Latour in his place, one might be concerned how the story that is taking place at The Jean Grey School stacks up over Summer. Well, its no summer vacation here as the school is still full of students who haven’t graduated and call the school their home! The […]

  • Comic Review: ‘Revival #18′

    Wow. That’s the only word for this issue. Just wow. Issue #18 of ‘Revival ‘is tense, and boy do I mean it. We have Sheriff Cypress escalating the war between he and Ed, the town militant. Martha confronts the wife of her former lover/totally deceased professor, and then proceeds to wake up bleeding the following […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Moon Knight’ #1

    Moon Knight is the Marvel comic that Warren Ellis was born to write. Possible the only thing that could make it better would be if it was on the Max line of comics but thankfully it doesn’t need to be to work as well as it did! Ellis has had a lot of hits over […]

    First off, I don’t know what the hell they were thinking with the art in this issue. I know there are a lot of fans of this style of art and I can appreciate that. My problem though is that it isn’t the style that you usually see in an X-Mencomic and because of that, […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Trillium’ #7

    I’m really developing a love/hate relationship with Lemire’s need to flip his frames upside down. At first, it was pretty darn awesome. And while it has worked for half of the issues, it doesn’t work well in this one. When you flip the comic over to read “the other side of the story”, there is […]

    The evil robot Ultron is a pretty hot commodity these days. Not only did he star in Brian Michael Bendis’ crossover event ‘Age of Ultron‘, but he also lends his name to the highly anticipated Joss Whedon sequel, ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’, where he will be played by James Spader. However, not many fans […]

Now, Marvel Comics as a whole is celebrating their 75th year in 2014. ‘Marvel Comics’ #1 hit newsstands in 1939 and ever since then, the House […]
