  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine And The X-Men’ #1

    Posted Saturday, March 8th, 2014 05:00 pm GMT -5

    With wrter Jason Aaron off and Jason Latour in his place, one might be concerned how the story that is taking place at The Jean Grey School stacks up over Summer. Well, its no summer vacation here as the school is still full of students who haven’t graduated and call the school their home! The […]

    Posted Saturday, March 8th, 2014 01:00 pm GMT -5

    Wow. That’s the only word for this issue. Just wow. Issue #18 of ‘Revival ‘is tense, and boy do I mean it. We have Sheriff Cypress escalating the war between he and Ed, the town militant. Martha confronts the wife of her former lover/totally deceased professor, and then proceeds to wake up bleeding the following […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Moon Knight’ #1

    Posted Saturday, March 8th, 2014 09:00 am GMT -5

    Moon Knight is the Marvel comic that Warren Ellis was born to write. Possible the only thing that could make it better would be if it was on the Max line of comics but thankfully it doesn’t need to be to work as well as it did! Ellis has had a lot of hits over […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #18

    Posted Friday, March 7th, 2014 08:00 pm GMT -5

    First off, I don’t know what the hell they were thinking with the art in this issue. I know there are a lot of fans of this style of art and I can appreciate that. My problem though is that it isn’t the style that you usually see in an X-Mencomic and because of that, […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Trillium’ #7

    Posted Friday, March 7th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -5

    I’m really developing a love/hate relationship with Lemire’s need to flip his frames upside down. At first, it was pretty darn awesome. And while it has worked for half of the issues, it doesn’t work well in this one. When you flip the comic over to read “the other side of the story”, there is […]

    Posted Thursday, March 6th, 2014 04:00 pm GMT -5

    The evil robot Ultron is a pretty hot commodity these days. Not only did he star in Brian Michael Bendis’ crossover event ‘Age of Ultron‘, but he also lends his name to the highly anticipated Joss Whedon sequel, ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’, where he will be played by James Spader. However, not many fans […]

    Jason Aaron’s run on ‘Wolverine And The X-Men’ is coming to a close and this issue gives a conclusion to his run that’s worth reading. The story arc has come full circle and there are plenty of loose ends open for going forward and just enough that come to a close in order to give […]

    Posted Sunday, March 2nd, 2014 03:00 pm GMT -5

    While this isn’t the return of the cult classic Joss Whedon show, as a limited series that many are hoping for, ‘Serenity: Leaves On The Wind’ is a pretty excellent substitute for a sequel to ‘Firefly’ and ‘Serenity’. In issue number one of this brand new series, we caught up with Captain Malcolm Reynolds and his […]
