    Posted Saturday, June 28th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -4

    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 […]

    Posted Friday, June 27th, 2014 01:00 pm GMT -4

    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 -4

    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 […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Nova’ #18 ‘Original Sin’

    Posted Sunday, June 22nd, 2014 11:00 am GMT -4

    First off, if you haven’t been following the story or ‘Original Sin‘ this is a great jumping in point to the comic. The latest iteration of Nova has been a hit or miss on storytelling in both his own book and in the latest take on the ‘New Warriors,’ but Gerry Duggan has been shown […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #22

    Posted Saturday, June 21st, 2014 07:00 pm GMT -4

    There has been a lot of build up (some of it too slow for my taste)  and we finally seemed to be making progress in ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #21!’ The latest issue jumps in right where it left off and threw a combination of action, surprises, suspense, and a great use of one of Cyclops’ new mutants […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine And The X-Men’ #5

    Posted Saturday, June 21st, 2014 11:00 am GMT -4

    The last run of ‘Wolverine and the X-Men’ was so strong that I feel the current run has been stretching to feel even half as entertaining or meaningful for its entire run. There have been some strong overall story arcs such as Eye Boy becoming relevant, Quire becoming the Phoenix, and Evan who is going […]
