As always, check with your retailer for availability, as not all releases may be on sale in all areas at the same time. Here is what’s on my pull-list this week. Each of the six issues of ‘The Sandman: Overture’ will be followed […]

  • Viral Video Implicates Magneto In JFK’s Death

    Posted Tuesday, November 26th, 2013 11:00 am GMT -4

    A viral video has been released promoting ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ on the heels of the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination on November 22nd, 1963.  ‘X-men’ is no stranger to rewriting history, and has been doing so since it’s creation in the 60s, so this video, as creative as it is, shouldn’t come as a big […]

  • Leaked Storyboards SPOIL A Big Portion Of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′

    Posted Monday, November 25th, 2013 07:00 pm GMT -4

    Extreme SPOILER ALERT! An eBay seller is offering up (what I assume are reproductions of) the storyboards for ‘Spider-Man 2′.  But either wittingly or not, included several images that just plain give away huge chunks of the movie! You were warned. First here are a bunch of pics of, what I assume is the climactic […]

  • The ‘Arrow’ Mid-Season Finale Synopsis Hints At Things To Come (SPOILERS!)

    Posted Monday, November 25th, 2013 05:00 pm GMT -4

    ‘Arrow’ is about to push pause on its second season, taking a break– as most shows do– for the winter.  (The thinking is that people are too busy with the holiday season to faithfully tune in to their favorite shows… thus ratings dip.)  But they’re going out with a bang, with the highly anticipated introduction […]

  • Sony Is Seeking To Expand Spider-Man’s Cinematic Universe With New Heroes And New Villains

    Posted Monday, November 25th, 2013 10:00 am GMT -4

    Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chairman Amy Pascal recently address investors and dropped a few hints at the studio’s upcoming plans for their relaunched ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ franchise, which has so far already generated $3 billion in revenue.  Obviously, Sony wants to keep the money flowing in for as long as it can.  In addition to next year’s […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Batwoman’ #25

    Posted Sunday, November 24th, 2013 09:00 pm GMT -4

    Well, with a new creative team coming on board, I guess it’s a good idea to kick off a new storyline, even though there are dangling threads from the previous run unresolved. The book switches gears big time, jumping into the Zero Year event, which rewinds things back to years before most of the New […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wonder Woman’ #25

    Posted Sunday, November 24th, 2013 05:00 pm GMT -4

    As you can see from this cover, Strife returns, and while she is certainly plotting something– she oozes with false sincerity– she never actually does anything evil here, so obviously this cover is a ruse.  In the meantime, Hermes continue to try making amends for his earlier actions when he kidnapped Zola’s baby Zeke.  There’s […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Men Legacy’ #20

    Posted Sunday, November 24th, 2013 01:00 pm GMT -4

    So in ‘X-Men Legacy’ #19 we left off with Legion having to fight a mysterious weapon of awesome power which I was vague about for anyone who didn’t have a chance to read it yet. It’s been long enough so now I can talk about that weapon, it’s the Shadow Phoenix! A twisted opposite version […]

    Deathstorm and Power Ring confront The Flash’s Rogue’s whom were ordered to level Central City to send a message to the rest of the world: that the Crime Syndicate and the villains were now in charge.  Grodd managed to inflict quite a bit of damage before taking off.  But the others, Captain Cold, Mirror Master, […]

    Posted Saturday, November 23rd, 2013 06:00 pm GMT -4

    In the last issue of the ‘Superior Spider-Man Team-Up series we found out what Spidey Ock has been up to by gathering his old Sinister Six partners – he was creating his own superhero team! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for The Superior Six! Granted, this is one that he’s completely controlling with […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘A+X’ #14

    Posted Saturday, November 23rd, 2013 02:00 pm GMT -4

    It has been quite some time since we’ve discussed ‘A+X’. Originally launched as the ‘AVX: Versus’ limited series during the ‘Avengers vs. X-Men’ storyline, the book has since evolved into a collection of short stories featuring members of each team joining forces. Overall, the book is a fun little slice of comics to check out […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Young Avengers’ #12

    Posted Saturday, November 23rd, 2013 10:00 am GMT -4

    After hearing the disheartening news that ‘Young Avengers’ would not continue on after issue fifteen earlier this week, we have the latest chapter in the fan-favorite book from Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie. While we haven’t been talking about the book itself in reviews for a while, make no mistake that we have been reading […]

  • AMC Releases A New Govenor Image

    Posted Friday, November 22nd, 2013 08:30 pm GMT -4

    The Governor is back on the TV version of ‘The Walking Dead’ but is the very definition of a wild card.  Seriously, am I the only one who expected him to kill everybody in the last episode ‘Live Bait’?!  But he didn’t.  It would almost seem that they were setting up a kinder, gentler Governor, […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Cable and X-Force’ #16

    Posted Friday, November 22nd, 2013 06:00 pm GMT -4

    According to the cover, Cable is responsible for the entire fate of the Marvel Universe! According to the insides of this issue, a lot of evil things are prevented though at the time and place in the comic, none of it actually looks that evil. Sure, if they were allowed to spiral out of hand […]
