    Things are falling apart as First Born has driven Apollo, who had usurped Olympus for himself, to commit “suicide” rather than give over control to this new found god.  Apollo’s twin, Artemis doesn’t fare any better against this newly powerful god, nor does Wonder Woman, who still doesn’t embrace her legacy as the new God […]

    We haven’t covered ‘X-Men’ in a couple of issues so I’ll do a brief recap of what has been going on. The series opened with the ancient creature Arkea coming to Earth to take over the planet.

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #19: ‘Uncanny X-Men Vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Part 1

    Posted Saturday, March 22nd, 2014 09:00 am GMT -5

    I was a bit disappointed with the artwork in the last issue of ‘Uncanny X-Men’ and the way it portrayed the story. Just to reiterate the art wasn’t bad, it just didn’t feel like it fit this iteration of the X-Men. Thankfully, Chris Bachalo is back and all of my complaints from the last issue […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Daredevil’ #1

    Posted Friday, March 21st, 2014 05:00 pm GMT -5

    I did not start off this week planning to write a review on the first issue of the new Daredevil. Right off the bat that should tell you something is up about this issue. It wasn’t editorial demand. It wasn’t even real curiosity as I bought this book on a whim. What it was is […]

  • Comic Review: ‘Ms. Marvel’ #2

    Posted Friday, March 21st, 2014 10:00 am GMT -5

    It’s official. Two issues in, and this is my favorite Marvel comic I have ever read. In this issue, the magic fog of whatever (well, Terrigan Mists, but magic fog is so much more descriptive), Kamala Khan discovers that she can shapeshift. And not just shapeshift in the change-your-appearance-from-one-conventional-thing-to another kind of way, but shapeshift […]
