    Some of my earliest memories involving Marvel Comics are those times when I’d go to the bookstore with my mother and venture into the magazine section to read Spider-Man comic books. I also vaguely remember visiting my parents at work and seeing the different Avengers staring back at me on the newsstands around the city. […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Bad Blood’ #1

    Posted Thursday, January 2nd, 2014 07:00 pm GMT -5

    I’m torn on Jonathan Maberry’s latest work. When dealing with horror he’s known for zombies over vampires, so when I read the announcement that he’d be taking on this form of the undead I was extremely curious as to how I’d take it. For the most part, I really loved the book though I do […]

  • New Stills From ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’

    Posted Thursday, January 2nd, 2014 06:00 pm GMT -5

    2013 was a huge year for super hero movies.  Though no movie topped 2012’2 ‘The Avengers’ at the box office, ‘Iron Man 3‘ still rode that movie’s coattails to become the fourth highest grossing movie of all time and ‘Thor: The Dark World’ zipped past the first ‘Thor’ movie in ticket sales.  But 2013 is […]

    Marvel Comics is notorious for its cryptic advertising campaigns, releasing mysterious one word ads for its various comic book events.  Recently, they’ve actually mailed out jigsaw puzzle pieces for an upcoming event, but they’ve only sent one piece to each outlet, leaving a lot of questions unanswered, but it seems to indicate that Marvel is […]

    Since the creation of superheroes, fans have always wondered who was superior over the rest. Or, to put it bluntly, they want to know who would win in a fight. That’s probably why games like ‘Marvel Vs. Capcom’, ‘Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe’, and ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ sell so well. However, there’s no game […]

    Warner Brothers and DC Comics had intended to launch a cinematic universe a few years ago, which would have started with the ‘Green Lantern’ film.  The studio even inserted Angela Bassett as Amanda Waller to serve as a parallel to Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury in Marvel’s movie, who served as a bridge between the various solo […]

    Good old Logan, or Wolverine, or James Howlett, or whatever you want to call him.

For some reason, Marvel is once again giving […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Justice League’ #26

    Posted Saturday, December 28th, 2013 06:00 pm GMT -5

    Unfortunately, the image on the cover would indicate that this scene takes place directly after ‘Forever Evil’ #4, with Sinestro confronting Power Ring… unfortunately, that doesn’t happen in this issue at all.  Other than Power Ring, these other characters don’t even appear. The issue is largely narrated by Grid, the robotic parts of Cyborg, now […]
