  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Star Wars’ #1

    Posted Sunday, September 8th, 2013 06:00 pm GMT -4 by
    About five months ago, Dark Horse announced that they would be releasing a comic book adaptation of George Lucas’ original screenplay for ‘Star Wars’ from 1974. However, back then, it was known as ‘The Star Wars’ and it featured some very different elements from the...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Joker’ #1/’Batman’ #23.1

    Posted Sunday, September 8th, 2013 03:00 pm GMT -4 by
    As the old saying goes, you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. Usually that means that you should give something a chance before you dismiss it, but in this case, you literally shouldn’t judge the quality of a comic book by it’s really cool cover. This month, DC Comics...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Infinity’ #2

    Posted Sunday, September 8th, 2013 01:30 pm GMT -4 by
    It’s all coming together now. After insanely epic events of ‘Avengers’ #18 and ‘New Avengers’ #9, ‘Infinity’ has funneled back into the main title to widen our scope of exactly what Jonathan Hickman has going on in his massive crossover that’s making everyone...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Justice League Dark’ #23.1: The Creeper

    Posted Sunday, September 8th, 2013 11:00 am GMT -4 by
    This is another one of these “Villain Month” issues that doesn’t really make sense.  The Creeper was introduced in Katana’s book.  Katana is a member of the Justice League of America, not JLD.  Yes, the character is supernatural, but there has been...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Justice League’ #23.1: Darkseid

    Posted Sunday, September 8th, 2013 10:30 am GMT -4 by
    I wasn’t sure how I felt about “Villains Month.”  The heroes of the DC Universe would be taking a month off, while their enemies took over their books, with fill-in writers and artists.  With comics, “fill-in” usually means throw away, useless...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Superior Spider-Man’ #17

    Posted Sunday, September 8th, 2013 08:00 am GMT -4 by
    About four month ago, we learned that a character from Marvel’s past and Spider-Man’s future would be popping up once again. That’s right, the Spider-Man of the future, Miguel O’Hara, would be making a comeback to the pages of Marvel Comics and he would be coming face...
  • The ‘Death Of Superman Lives’ Documentary Is Coming

    Posted Saturday, September 7th, 2013 11:15 pm GMT -4 by
    As many fans know, there was another Superman movie planned just before ‘Superman Returns.’  At one point, Tim Burton, the eccentric director behind the first two Batman movies as well as quirky films like ‘Edward Scissorhands’ and ‘Beetlejuice‘,...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New X-Men’ #16 – Battle Of The Atom Chapter 2

    Posted Saturday, September 7th, 2013 08:02 pm GMT -4 by
    Having just finished up with ‘X-Men: Battle Of The Atom’ #1, I am so ridiculously glad we don’t have to wait a week for the second installment. With such high praise for the first issue (I wanted to give it more than 5 atoms), one has to ask how the second stacked up?...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Men: Battle Of The Atom’ #1

    Posted Saturday, September 7th, 2013 06:00 pm GMT -4 by
    The last crossover event that the X-Men were involved in was the ‘Avengers vs X-Men’ story line. With that long concluded and there being a whole slew of time travel going on in the X-Books since that time, the consequences are now at hand. While the ‘Age of...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Forever Evil’ #1

    Posted Saturday, September 7th, 2013 03:00 pm GMT -4 by
    Earth 3′s Crime Syndicate, twisted evil versions of the Justice League, have arrived on Earth 1 and quickly sets out to conquer it.  (No word on what happened to the three Justice Leagues.)  As part of their attack, they wipe out all power in major cities, starting with...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Men Legacy’ #16

    Posted Saturday, September 7th, 2013 12:00 pm GMT -4 by
    In the last issue, Legion made nice with his mother right before she was murdered in front of his eyes. That kind of a thing might mess with someone a little. Now imagine they have 100′s of personalities banging around in their skull and it might mess with them a lot. With...
  • Fan Art Friday: The Amazing Realism Of TovMauzer

    Posted Friday, September 6th, 2013 07:28 pm GMT -4 by
    This week, I was lucky enough to speak to the amazingly talented TovMauzer. Living in Russia, he has an art style that spans the range from stylized to cartoonish to hyper realistic. His ‘Breaking Bad’ pieces are gaining critical acclaim all across the world in the...
  • Will A Woman Headline A Marvel Super Hero Movie?

    Posted Friday, September 6th, 2013 05:00 pm GMT -4 by
    It’s only fitting that “The Earth’s Mightiest Hero” grace the silver screen, right?  And yet while a parade of male super heroes have paraded before our eyes, often in 3D, only a small number of female protagonists have gotten the green light… and...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Iron Man’ #15

    Posted Friday, September 6th, 2013 11:00 am GMT -4 by
    The Secret Origin of Tony Stark’ continues! In the last issue, Iron Man tried to give in to 451′s demands and pilot The Godkiller. Only it didn’t work. For some reason The Godkiller wouldn’t acknowledge Tony being plugged. 451 didn’t know this, so...
  • ‘Batwoman’ Writers Quit Over Editorial Interference

    Posted Thursday, September 5th, 2013 05:00 pm GMT -4 by
    J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman of the comic series ‘Batwoman’ are just the latest of DC talent to step aside over the company’s rampant editorial interference, joining fellow writers and artists James Robinson, Rob Liefeld, Andy Diggle and Joshua Hale...
