    In this issue we close the arc on the ice age that Iceman has inflicted upon the Earth while powered up by The Apocalypse Seed. In the last issue we ended with the seed coming loose and being swallowed by Mystique, giving her the powers of Apocalypse. Interesting enough, the...

  • Comic Creators Trivialize Rape And Claim Comics Aren’t For Women

    Posted Saturday, August 17th, 2013 08:00 pm GMT -4 by
    Geek girls have long been frustrated by the treatment of female characters in comics, who are usually employed strictly as plot devices or accessories for male leads.  Comic writer Gail Simone even launched a website listing the atrocities inflicted on female characters called...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Secret Avengers’ #7

    Posted Saturday, August 17th, 2013 06:30 pm GMT -4 by
    I am really starting to hate Maria Hill. It’s a funny thing really because over in ‘Indestructible Hulk’, I like her just fine, but then I read an issue of ‘Secret Avengers’ and then it all changes. When we last left the Marvel Universe’s newest black ops team, Director...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #10

    Posted Saturday, August 17th, 2013 05:00 pm GMT -4 by
    Okay, first up I need to warn you – there is a LOT going on in this issue. Not only is there a lot going on but there is potentially even more going on down the line from what happens in here. While ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #9 was my least favorite issue of the series...

    This issue has been a long time coming. Since ‘Avengers Arena’ began, the readers have wondered what the outside world thought about the missing kids. Someone had to have noticed that they were gone, right? Well, after twelve issues, we’re finally going to dig into that...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine And The X-Men’ #34

    Posted Saturday, August 17th, 2013 11:00 am GMT -4 by
    The Hellfire Saga continues where it left off in ‘Wolverine And The X-Men’ #33 and as much as I enjoyed the character build up in the last issue, the action in this one completely trumped it. I almost want to retroactively lower last week’s grading to a 4. Not because...

    Lex Luthor enters the fray of ‘Trinity War’ as he learns that Superman accidentally killed the fledgling hero Doctor Light.  (See Justice League #22)  Of course, anything of this magnitude that affects Superman, Luthor MUST investigate, but before he can take any...
  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Force’ #10

    Posted Friday, August 16th, 2013 08:00 pm GMT -4 by
    I’ve been going back and forth on how I feel about ‘Uncanny X-Force’ and the last issue left me feeling the same way. There still isn’t a real team and while they have a couple things to follow up with, the series hasn’t had a solid direction to...

  • Comic Review: ‘X-Files: Season 10′ #3

    Posted Friday, August 16th, 2013 12:26 pm GMT -4 by
    After the first two issues, I was feeling a little hesitant about this series. It felt too much like magic and not enough aliens. It also kept bringing back characters that should be dead, and I didn’t really understand why. Now, I feel like I’m going to have to eat...
  • The Stunning Visual Effects Behind ‘Game of Thrones’

    Posted Friday, August 16th, 2013 11:00 am GMT -4 by
    Wow. Never again will I make light of an extraneous dragon shot in ‘Game of Thrones,’ snarkily calling it an excuse to flex the visual effects budget. Spin VFX, the studio behind the stunning visual effects seen in ‘Game of Thrones‘, recently released...
