    In the third installment of ‘Vendetta’ we saw the team preparing to infiltrate Stryfe’s fortress and regain their three kidnapped friends.

    ‘Furious’ throws us straight into a world where no one has had super powers and now someone does. A young woman suddenly has super strength, speed, and can fly. She also has an agenda that becomes very clear as the book unfolds. Her reason to want to be a superhero? It’s full on atonement for […]

    Since the cancellation of ‘Firefly’ over ten years ago, fans have been clamoring for more tales from Joss Whedon’s cult classic space western. Luckily, we were lucky enough to get the major motion picture ‘Serenity’ and a few comic book tie-ins here and there, but we’ve never actually gotten a legitimate continuation of the story […]

    Posted Saturday, February 1st, 2014 10:30 am GMT -5

    It’s been a while since we’ve covered ‘Avengers Assemble’ here on, but after the tie-ins to ‘Infinity’, I added the book back to my pull list and have been enjoying it ever since. However, it was recently revealed that the series would be ending in March with issue 25. Since this book needs more love before […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Revival’ #17

    Posted Friday, January 31st, 2014 09:17 pm GMT -5

    Before we begin, I’d like to give a quick shout out to ‘Revival’ cover artist, Jenny Fisher, who does amazing work issue after issue. Every issue has an cover that is breathtakingly evocative, and gives a lot more depth to the story that unfolds within the comic’s pages. This cover, in particular, is one of […]

    Shortly after the New Year, Marvel announced a grand wedding coming to the pages of their comic books in 2014.

  • Marvel Hires Christopher Yost And Craig Kyle To Script ‘Thor 3′

    Posted Friday, January 31st, 2014 10:00 am GMT -5

    ‘Thor: The Dark World’ breezed past the first ‘Thor’ movie in terms of box office sales, thanks no doubt to the character’s elevated awareness thanks from ‘The Avengers‘ … well, and Loki.  Since Tom Hiddleston won’t be reprising that role in ‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron‘, it only makes sense that Marvel would green light a third ‘Thor’ which […]

    Posted Thursday, January 30th, 2014 08:00 pm GMT -5

    As soon as the television adaptation of ‘The Walking Dead‘ premiered readers of the comics realized that we were dealing with a completely different beast.  The minimal cast of the comics was padded out with several brand new, made for TV characters, most of which have been killed off since then, with one notable exception… […]

    Posted Wednesday, January 29th, 2014 01:15 pm GMT -5

    The Michael Bay-spearheaded ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ hasn’t exactly been brimming with positive buzz.  In fact, nearly every factoid about it that surfaces seems to instill more and more concern into fans.  The turtles won’t be actual turtles; they’ll be aliens.  Shredder will be Caucasian.  Meagan Fox is April O’Neil.  Uhhhhhh…. Then, last week, the […]
