    Six months ago, prior to New York Comic Con, things were looking bleak for Marvel’s roster of solo female titles. ‘Red She-Hulk’, ‘Journey Into Mystery’, and ‘Captain Marvel’ were all coming to an end. But then huge announcements were made as a new volume of ‘Captain Marvel’ and new solo books like ‘Black Widow’ and […]

  • Check Out This Hilariously Censored ‘Avengers’ Video Clip

    The folks at ‘Unnecessarily Censored’ have gotten their hands on super hero classic ‘The Avengers’ and, as they typically do, have bleeped and blurred out random clean words, making them seem filthier than they were in real life.  You probably already know most of this movie by heart already, but this gives the movie a […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Loki: Agent Of Asgard’ #3

    Games within lies within plots within plans is the tale of Loki’s life. The first two books I’ve given almost perfect reviews and the upcoming issue takes a large step away from the story we’ve been following only to slip right back into it in pure Loki style. Only, which Loki’s style? In the first […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Revival’ #19

    I’m one of those people. The kind of person who watched ‘Dante’s Peak’ and didn’t blink one when grandma died, but wept when the dog almost didn’t make it. The only thing I cared about in 2014 was stupid Japanese Chin. So, needless to say, ‘Revival #19′, with the death of Lester’s dog, Chuck, at […]

    The first issue of the new take on ‘Moon Knight‘ had me convinced that this was going to be one of the most interesting series out on comic book stands for quite a while to come. In fact, I started off the last review by saying that “Moon Knight is the Marvel comic that Warren […]

  • Comic Review: ‘Trillium’ #8

    Posted Friday, April 4th, 2014 02:00 pm GMT -5
    by

    ‘Trillium’ had a strong start, and a creative take on using the comic book medium. It had interesting art, and a real understanding at what an alien creature in science fiction may really be like. It was cool, it was trippy, and it played with the reader’s perceptions. Also, it has Jeff Lemire’s quirky drawing […]
