    Since Marvel Studios went into the live action movie business for themselves back in 2008 starting with ‘Iron Man’, they’ve managed to produce a number of films with varying genres. They tried their hand at a monster movie with ‘The Incredible Hulk’, a period piece with ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, and fantasy with ‘Thor’, […]

    While the most recent run of ‘Legacy’ has come to a close, if you go in numerical order we’re up to the 300th issue of the series and Marvel has put something special together as a finale to close the door on the Legacy series. The story itself introduces us to one of the greatest […]

    In the first issue of ‘X-Force’ Spurrier spun us a tale of Cable creating a group to cover the military interests of the fractured mutant nation. Clearly with Hope in a coma, he has his own personal desire for revenge that he is not over sharing with the rest of the world. In this issue […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine’ #3

    I haven’t been enjoying this run on ‘Wolverine’ so far and that should be clear as my highlight of the second issue is that The Superior Spider-Man was making a guest appearance. This issue plays off the strength by not only including Doc Ock again but also throwing in Jubilee, the X-Men, and S.H.I.E.L.D., which […]

    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.

    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 […]

    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 […]
