    During the month of December, Marvel fans were given the opportunity to travel back in time and revisit a world where Peter Parker was Spider-Man once again. But now, with issue #700.5, that brief visit has come to an end. However, unlike the last time he left us, Pete goes out with a good laugh. […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Superior Spider-Man Team-Up’ #8

    This is now the only Spidey book Chris Yost will be a part of and that is truly a shame as he’s been killing it so far. No more ‘Scarlet Spider’ after this week’s issue to double up on his work. While ‘Superior Spider-Man’ #8 isn’t as strong as every issue that led up to it […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The X-Files Season 10′ #7

    I can’t tell you how much better I like the direction Season 10 is taking with this newest story arc. The creature that made me frightened to use Port-A-Potties is back and Russians are inexplicably involved with the plot. Essentially, it’s just good old X-Files fare, and it’s a delight for old fans like myself. […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Men’ #8

    In the previous issue, we met the new Lady Deathstrike, who is actually the old Lady Deathstrike Yuriko Oyama downloaded into the body of Columbian mob daughter Ana Cortez.  This results in something of a split-personality as both minds attempt to adjust to sharing one body.  (This seems to be a recurring condition in the […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Harley Quinn’ #1

    Husband/Wife writing team Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner present a fresh start for Harley Quinn, ditching her controversial ‘Suicide Squad’ lingerie-like costume and having her adopt a new suit that more closely resembles her classic look.  She also starts her life over from scratch, moving to Coney Island, into a huge building let to her […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ #700.4

    After an extremely lackluster first arc, Peter Parker’s “return” to the Marvel Universe in ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ continues in issues #700.3 and #700.4. During an epic battle with Firebrand, Spider-Man ends up with some pretty severe burns all over his body. He’s so disfigured that he’s unrecognizable to anyone, including the clean up crew from The […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Force’ #15

    In this issue of ‘Uncanny X-Force’ we get the conclusion of ‘The Great Corruption’ story line! Just in time too as we aren’t too far from the ‘Uncanny X-Force’ and ‘Cable and X-Force’ crossing paths in a major crossover which will leave only one title standing! We open the issue with Uncanny X-Force split with […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Young Avengers’ #14

    We have finally reached the beginning of the end. After all the teen heroes of the Marvel Universe banded together to defeat Mother’s otherworldly companions that poured into our dimension, it’s time for the after party to begin in the second to last issue of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s ‘Young Avengers’. That’s right! It […]

  • Anna Paquin’s Rogue Has Been Cut From ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

    Bad news for Anna Paquin and her X-Men fans. Her part has been cut from the movie ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’.  The actress only filmed one scene– “a big rescue sequence featuring Rogue, Magneto (Ian McKellen), Professor X (Patrick Stewart), and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore).”  There was no mention as to whether Ashmore had any additional […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Ghost’ #1

    by

    I was a little skeptical on checking out the first issue of ‘Ghost’ right off the bat. I had missed the mini-series and on top of that, it’s a bit of paranormal mixed with action detective work mixed with… Well to be honest it felt like Batman Meets Hellboy and I didn’t really think they’d […]

  • Comic Review: ‘Revival’ #16

    Posted Saturday, December 21st, 2013 09:00 am GMT -4
    by

    As this year comes to close, I thank the comic gods for giving me ‘Revival’ simply because this comic, from issue to issue, is consistently great.  Even it’s weaker issues are good, and when read as part of a trade they are less noticeable as they tie major plots together. Did ‘Revival’ #16 blow me […]

    In the last issue we saw the All-New X-Men now hanging out in Cyclops’ camp doing their won them doing just that as they went at it against the mutant-hating religious group known as the Purifiers who had a mutant they had been hunting down. That mutant? X-23! Yes the Wolverine’s female clone is now in […]

  • Chris Terrio, The Writer of ‘Argo’, To Revise The ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Script

    It seems David Goyer has a lot on his plate, including scripting the new ‘The Sandman’ movie as well as a string of lower budget movies like ‘Suicide Squad’, ‘Booster Gold’, ‘Deathstroke’ and ‘Team 7′ (yeah, this was the first I was hearing about them too), that after completing his take on the ‘Batman Vs.

  • Bryan Singer Collaborates On ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Script

    by

    With ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ still months away, it’s crazy to think that director Bryan Singer is already hard at work on the follow-up ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’!  At such an early stage, I’m sure the film maker hasn’t finalized details about the story, but it’s obvious he is enthusiastic about this franchise and is eager […]
