  • Comic Book Review: ‘Abe Sapien’ #9

    Posted Saturday, January 11th, 2014 12:00 pm GMT -4

    The latest issue of Abe Sapien has him starting a three issue story arc known as ‘To The Last Man’. One of the big things I love about Mignola’s runs is that these story arcs just as easily fit as self contained units as they are a part of the larger story. You don’t have […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New Marvel NOW Point One’ #1

In this handy little collection, we get brand new standalone stories that act as […]

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

    Posted Friday, January 10th, 2014 09:00 pm GMT -4

    We open the issue with Gambit trying to steal an ancient artifact of evil. Which is all good until after what seems like an eternity of him getting past security, Wolverine walks in and tells him to cut it out. Yes, Gambit gets a lecture from Logan because it’s not a Marvel comic without Wolverine […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Iron Man’ #20

    Posted Friday, January 10th, 2014 06:00 pm GMT -4

    I was a little let down with ‘Iron Man’ #19′, which is a shame because I tend to love Kieron Gillen‘s writing. Thankfully what I felt was actually a lull in the second issue of this ‘Iron Metropolitan’ story arc which ended there. With the giant ring bearing hand that came up at the close […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine’ #13

    Posted Friday, January 10th, 2014 12:00 pm GMT -4

    I think my favorite thing about this issue is that it brings the current story line to a close and maybe, just maybe, how Marvel will stop having Wolverine in every other comic that they put out these days. Logan spends the majority of the issue having his behind handed to him (both figuratively and […]

  • It’s Official! Peter Parker Will Return As Spider-Man

    Posted Thursday, January 9th, 2014 02:00 pm GMT -4

    In a move that we all knew would happen sooner or later, it looks like Marvel will cease publication of ‘The Superior Spider-Man‘ and launch an all-new ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ written by Dan Slott and drawn by Humberto Ramos, featuring a resurrected Peter Parker taking his role back from Otto Octavius, formerly his nemesis Doctor […]

  • Dark Horse Will Publish A Conclusion To ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’

    Posted Thursday, January 9th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -4

    When Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012, it killed the popular animated series ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ which aired on Disney’s competitor Nickelodeon.  Disney is now crafting its own animated series to air on Disney XD, which is all well and good, but where does that leave leave fans of ‘The Clone Wars’ who haven’t […]

  • ‘Indestructible Hulk’ Relaunching As ‘Hulk’ For All-New Marvel NOW

    Posted Wednesday, January 8th, 2014 05:00 pm GMT -4

    In late December of 2012, Mark Waid launched a brand new Hulk series as part of the Marvel NOW event titled ‘Indestructible Hulk’. This book managed (coincidentally) to take a page from Mark Ruffalo’s portrayal of the character in ‘The Avengers’ and changed Dr. Bruce Banner from a mopey sad sack to a proactive scientist […]

    Posted Wednesday, January 8th, 2014 10:00 am GMT -4

    Gal Gadot recently spoke about playing Wonder Woman, expressing “It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now. A very serious training regime – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.”  So it’s obvious that the most famous female superhero will be putting her Amazonian combat training to use in the […]

  • Are You Ready To RSVP To Deadpool’s Red Wedding?

    Posted Monday, January 6th, 2014 03:00 pm GMT -4

    Now is it red because it’ll be a bloody affair like the ‘Game of Thrones’ Red Wedding? Will it be because he wears red? Is it because everyone in the multiverse is after him? Maybe because he’s made new enemies from being on the Thunderbolts? It’s too early to say, but Deadpool’s wedding has quickly […]
