  • Controversial ‘Powerpuff Girls’ Cover Gets Yanked

    Posted Monday, January 27th, 2014 07:00 pm GMT -4

    IDW recently launched a comic book series based on the legendary 90s animated series ‘The Powerpuff Girls’, but things have hit a snag.  To the right, you can see a cover illustrated by artist Mimi Yoon, presenting the girls… well, kinda grown up.  Actually, more than a little grown up. After complaints, IDW has decided […]

  • Rick Cosnett And Danielle Panabaker Cast As Potential Flash Villains For The CW Pilot

    Posted Monday, January 27th, 2014 10:00 am GMT -4

    Grant Gustin turned in a two episode stint as police scientist Barry Allen, clearly making an impression on Felicity Smoak.  The second episode ended with the accident that will obviously prove to be the origin of The Flash, who will be getting his own pilot which hopefully will result in a separate series.  (Fans seem […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New Invaders’ #1

    Posted Sunday, January 26th, 2014 07:30 pm GMT -4

    Back when All-New Marvel NOW was announced, ‘All-New Invaders’ was the first new title debuted along with ‘Inhuman’. In this new series from Eisner Award-winning writer James Robinson, the World War II era team known as the Invaders are brought together once again, but this time in the modern day for a sort of war […]

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

    Posted Sunday, January 26th, 2014 04:30 pm GMT -4

    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 done quite well. Not only that, but they were able […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Avengers’ #25

    Posted Sunday, January 26th, 2014 02:00 pm GMT -4

    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 mean that the writer has skipped a beat. Even […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Walking Dead’ #120

    Posted Sunday, January 26th, 2014 01:30 pm GMT -4

    The much hyped ‘All Out War’ finally breaks out, this issue as Negan and his men shower grenades upon Alexandria destroying entire homes at a time.  Last issue, Negan ambushed Rick’s group with a zombie-fied Holly, who bit Denise Cloyd, but Denise is a tough one.  She doesn’t die and when her boyfriend Heath is […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Avengers World’ #2

    Posted Sunday, January 26th, 2014 10:30 am GMT -4

    Smasher is quickly becoming one of my favorite Avengers. Her humble beginnings, never give up attitude, and her comedic moments with various Avengers are often the highlights of whatever books she pops up in. While we learned about her origins back in ‘Avengers’ #5, we get more of where she came from in the latest […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Justice League’ #27

    Posted Saturday, January 25th, 2014 10:00 pm GMT -4

    Meet… and say goodbye to The New 52 version of the Doom Patrol.  Essentially this is the 80s version.  We see Scott Fischer and Karma, as well as the dead body of Negative Woman.  Scott also references Celsius and Tempest, but… don’t look forward to seeing them anytime soon.  Or these two.  Just sayin’.  (That […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Batwoman’ #27

    Posted Saturday, January 25th, 2014 07:00 pm GMT -4

    Batwoman and Hawkfire were jumped by the burglar Wolf Spider and Batwoman was drugged and flung out a window of a highrise.  Unfortunately, even though she’s plummeting to her death, she plunges into a hallucinogenic fever dream, essentially recapping her story up to now, including her sister Elizabeth/Alice, her mother’s death her expulsion from the […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wonder Woman’ #27

    Posted Saturday, January 25th, 2014 03:00 pm GMT -4

    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 in this series.  (I need to go back and reread a few issues.) Well, […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Cable and X-Force’ #19: Vendetta Part 3

    Posted Saturday, January 25th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -4

    Continuing on the crossover between ‘Cable and X-Force’ and ‘Uncanny X-Force’ we’re delving further into the revenge that Stryfe (wait, isn’t he supposed to be dead?) has planned against the man he’s cloned from – Cable. (He’ll just never accept the fact that he’s the real clone! Or, is he?) We open the story where […]

    Posted Friday, January 24th, 2014 06:00 pm GMT -4

    It was already revealed that Jaimie Alexander will be reprising her role as Lady Sif on ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ on an episode where she tracks down the Thor villain Lorelei (played by Elena Satine), but it turns out that they series has an even bigger reveal on the way.

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine And The X-Men’ #40

    Posted Friday, January 24th, 2014 04:00 pm GMT -4

    We’re continuing with what happened in ‘Wolverine And The X-Men’ #39 and getting a two part story here, one that focuses on Wolverine and Cyclops while the other follows the viewpoint of the students.

  • Flash Gordon Soars Into A New Comic Book Series From Dynamite Entertainment

    Posted Friday, January 24th, 2014 01:07 pm GMT -4

    Just in time for the character’s 80th anniversary, Dynamite is giving Flash Gordon a new solo comic book series.  Dynamite has established itself as the haven of fan favorite properties of the past that no longer have an outlet, publishing comics based on ‘Xena’, ‘The Six Million Dollar Man’, ‘The Bionic Woman’, ‘Captain Action’, ‘The […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New X-Men’ #22: ‘The Trial of Jean Grey’ Part 1

    Posted Friday, January 24th, 2014 12:00 pm GMT -4

    It’s only been a week since issue #21 where I was speculating what route the ‘Trial Of Jean Grey’ was going to take and if it would involve the Shi’ar Empire at all. Seems like I knew exactly what was coming! Now is that a good thing that it’s going the route I suspected or […]
