  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New Invaders’ #2

    Posted Saturday, February 8th, 2014 10:00 pm GMT -5

    About two weeks ago, the Marvel Universe was reintroduced to the Invaders, the World War II era team of superheroes that fought alongside the Allies consisting of Captain America, Bucky, The Sub-Mariner, the original Human Torch, and more, in the new All-New Marvel NOW series ‘All-New Invaders’. The first issue primarily focused on Jim Hammond, […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Bad Blood’ #2

    Posted Saturday, February 8th, 2014 07:00 pm GMT -5

    Aside from one scene which almost made me worry on what direction the comic would go, I really enjoyed ‘Bad Blood’ #1. So with that worry in mind, I cracked open the second issue wondering where it would take me and thankfully my concern was unfounded! While less action filled than the first, we were […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Punisher’ #1

    Posted Saturday, February 8th, 2014 03:00 pm GMT -5

    This is a pretty big week for fans of Marvel Comics. There are a number of new titles debuting this week as part of All-New Marvel Now including the highly anticipated ‘Ms. Marvel’ and ‘Loki: Agent of Asgard’. But another new book that hasn’t been talked about as much is ‘The Punisher’ #1 from Nathan […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Forever Evil’ #5

    Posted Saturday, February 8th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -5

    In this issue, Catwoman exclaims, “They say your enemy’s enemy is your friend,” and that is certainly the truth as strange bedfellows join forces, although that certainly isn’t without some resistance.  Allegiances are modified, another classic villain dies (after the death of Metallo earlier) and the Crime Syndicate has its first casualty, but unfortunately as […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Trillium’ #6

    Posted Friday, February 7th, 2014 09:00 pm GMT -5

    As much as I love how new and innovative ‘Trillium’ is with its formatting, it certainly felt like this issue went a little too far. In the first issue, you had to stories upside down from one another meeting in the middle. Then you had a few normally laid out comics, and last issue you […]

  • Big Names Are Now Attached Behind The Camera For AMC’s ‘Preacher’

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Loki: Agent Of Asgard’ #1

    Posted Friday, February 7th, 2014 04:10 pm GMT -5

    Marvel’s clear cut success with Loki in the cinematic universe has pushed them to change the character. Since Loki was reborn as a child up through his most recent transformation in ‘Young Avengers’, he’s been one of the most interesting characters to date. While I wasn’t a fan that he was changing once again when […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Ms. Marvel’ #1

    Posted Friday, February 7th, 2014 02:27 pm GMT -5

    I’m not going to lie. I’ve been anticipating this comic for months. Usually when I do this, I get very disappointed because nothing stands up to my expectations. Well, ‘Ms. Marvel’ #1 was nothing like I expected, but I still really liked it. Now, I feel like I should mention that when I expressed interest […]

  • Happy 50th Birthday G.I. Joe!

    Posted Thursday, February 6th, 2014 07:45 pm GMT -5

    50 years ago, this month, the world was introduced to the very first action figure, Hasbro’s G.I. Joe.  Initially something of a boy-oriented Barbie doll, the company came up with the term “action figure” so as not to repulse boys. The toy still shared many traits with the fashionista.  The original action figures were 11.5″ […]

  • Details Emerge Regarding Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor (SPOILERS)

    Posted Thursday, February 6th, 2014 06:18 pm GMT -5

    About a week ago, Warner Brothers stunned fans by announcing their casting of Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and, even moreso, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.  The casting of the next DC movie has been riddled with controversy and this certainly fanned those flames.  Luthor has been typically been depicted as an older, conservative character […]

  • New Japanese ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ TV Ad Showcases New Footage

    Posted Thursday, February 6th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -5

    ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is still several months off, but it’s never too early to start drumming up awareness for the new movie, which will build a bridge between the original X-Men movies as well as the two Wolverine flicks that followed them and ‘X-Men: First Class’, the most recent team movie.

  • Future DC Animated Movies Will Exist In The Same Continuity As ‘Justice League: War’

    Posted Thursday, February 6th, 2014 10:00 am GMT -5

    DC has been releasing original animated movies on DVD and Blu-Ray for years now.  Some, like ‘Teen Titans: Trouble In Tokyo’ tied into existing continuities.  Others stood alone and some adapted actual comic book storylines, such as ‘Batman: Year One‘ just to name one of many.  However most of those could be said to exist […]
