    Roughly three months ago, Marvel announced that the Winter Soldier would be appearing in a brand new limited series called ‘Winter Soldier: The Bitter March’ from ‘Captain America’ and ‘Uncanny Avengers’ scribe Rick Remender and artist Roland Boschi. And unlike his appearance in ‘All-New Invaders’, this story would be set in the past and would […]

    Early on in Jonathan Hickman’s run on ‘Avengers’, it was declared that Earth is an Avengers World. Most recently, this was put to the test during ‘Infinity’ and now there’s even a whole new series declaring this fact on the regular. But I guess that statement has made it’s way to other universes as well […]

    After months spent delving into the past during the ‘Batman: Zero Year’ story-arc, Scott Snyder gives us a brief reprieve by launching us back into the present (well, six-months into the future of the present anyway) in ‘Batman’ issue #28, which gives readers a sneak peak into the world we’ll be seeing in the upcoming […]

    With ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ just a few weeks from release, fans have already begun to wonder when we’ll start seeing more sneak peaks at what we can expect to see in Marvel’s next big summer blockbuster movie — ‘The Guardians of the Galaxy’.

    It seems like after the initial conspiracy the first arc of this series offered, we’re starting to move back to the usual monster of the week format that most fans are so familiar with in ‘The X-Files’. Or, since it’s comics, monster of the month. So, gone is the story about the dessicated corpse of […]

    While you almost all of you probably know the Justice League, many of you probably don’t quite know who the Justice League 3000 is. Set in the future of the DC Universe, this 31st Century adventure stars a cast of characters not unlike the fan favorite heroes of today that we already know and love, […]

    All good things must come to an end and ‘X-Men Legacy’ is sadly no different. In the previous issue we saw Legion having turned into the Mindworm, fulfilling the prophecy that he has been so desperately trying to avoid for this entire series. It came to a close with David and Blindfold finally having a […]

    Fresh off his amazingly successful ‘X-Men Legacy‘ series, Spurrier is now tackling another set of mutants. While he did amazing things with Legion, one has to ask if he is able to write a team just as successfully as he was able to shine the spotlight on primarily just one character? To start off, let […]

    We’re continuing on from the second part of Jean’s trail that took place in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ #11 and we kick off with what has ended up as my favorite issue of the crossover so far!

    When you think of superheroes, there’s a good chance that when you name one, he or she will be Caucasian. Batman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, and Black Widow might be the first ones to pop into the minds of a mainstream audience. However, there are a number of diverse heroes in the world of comic […]
