  • Comic Book Review: ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ #700.4

    Posted Saturday, December 21st, 2013 09:00 pm GMT -5

    After an extremely lackluster first arc, Peter Parker’s “return” to the Marvel Universe in ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ continues in issues #700.3 and #700.4. During an epic battle with Firebrand, Spider-Man ends up with some pretty severe burns all over his body. He’s so disfigured that he’s unrecognizable to anyone, including the clean up crew from The […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Force’ #15

    Posted Saturday, December 21st, 2013 07:00 pm GMT -5

    In this issue of ‘Uncanny X-Force’ we get the conclusion of ‘The Great Corruption’ story line! Just in time too as we aren’t too far from the ‘Uncanny X-Force’ and ‘Cable and X-Force’ crossing paths in a major crossover which will leave only one title standing! We open the issue with Uncanny X-Force split with […]

    Posted Saturday, December 21st, 2013 05:00 pm GMT -5

    We have finally reached the beginning of the end. After all the teen heroes of the Marvel Universe banded together to defeat Mother’s otherworldly companions that poured into our dimension, it’s time for the after party to begin in the second to last issue of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s ‘Young Avengers’. That’s right! It […]

  • Anna Paquin’s Rogue Has Been Cut From ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

    Posted Saturday, December 21st, 2013 03:00 pm GMT -5

    Bad news for Anna Paquin and her X-Men fans. Her part has been cut from the movie ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’.  The actress only filmed one scene– “a big rescue sequence featuring Rogue, Magneto (Ian McKellen), Professor X (Patrick Stewart), and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore).”  There was no mention as to whether Ashmore had any additional […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Ghost’ #1

    Posted Saturday, December 21st, 2013 01:00 pm GMT -5

    I was a little skeptical on checking out the first issue of ‘Ghost’ right off the bat. I had missed the mini-series and on top of that, it’s a bit of paranormal mixed with action detective work mixed with… Well to be honest it felt like Batman Meets Hellboy and I didn’t really think they’d […]

  • Comic Review: ‘Revival’ #16

    Posted Saturday, December 21st, 2013 09:00 am GMT -5

    As this year comes to close, I thank the comic gods for giving me ‘Revival’ simply because this comic, from issue to issue, is consistently great.  Even it’s weaker issues are good, and when read as part of a trade they are less noticeable as they tie major plots together. Did ‘Revival’ #16 blow me […]

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

    Posted Friday, December 20th, 2013 03:11 pm GMT -5

    In the last issue we saw the All-New X-Men now hanging out in Cyclops’ camp doing their won them doing just that as they went at it against the mutant-hating religious group known as the Purifiers who had a mutant they had been hunting down. That mutant? X-23! Yes the Wolverine’s female clone is now in […]

  • Chris Terrio, The Writer of ‘Argo’, To Revise The ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Script

    Posted Friday, December 20th, 2013 12:00 pm GMT -5

    It seems David Goyer has a lot on his plate, including scripting the new ‘The Sandman’ movie as well as a string of lower budget movies like ‘Suicide Squad’, ‘Booster Gold’, ‘Deathstroke’ and ‘Team 7′ (yeah, this was the first I was hearing about them too), that after completing his take on the ‘Batman Vs. […]

  • Bryan Singer Collaborates On ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Script

    Posted Friday, December 20th, 2013 10:00 am GMT -5

    With ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ still months away, it’s crazy to think that director Bryan Singer is already hard at work on the follow-up ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’!  At such an early stage, I’m sure the film maker hasn’t finalized details about the story, but it’s obvious he is enthusiastic about this franchise and is eager […]

  • Marvel Explains ‘Inhuman’ Creative Team Changes

    Posted Friday, December 20th, 2013 09:00 am GMT -5

    After being announced this summer, the flagship book of the Marvel Comics event known as ‘Inhumanity’ was set to hit our local comic book shops in January. However, earlier this month, the company announced that ‘Inhuman’ by Matt Fraction with art by Joe Madureia would be postponed until April. Then, we found out this week […]

  • Marvel VP Defends Renumbering In All-New Marvel NOW

    Posted Thursday, December 19th, 2013 02:00 pm GMT -5

    After the massive success of Marvel NOW in 2013 that introduced a number of brand new Marvel books to local comic book shops everywhere, the House of Ideas is looking to do it again with All-New Marvel NOW in 2014. While some people have mistakenly labeled this as another reboot or relaunch, it’s simply a […]

  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Produce And May Direct And Star In ‘The Sandman’ Movie

    Posted Wednesday, December 18th, 2013 12:45 pm GMT -5

    After sort of playing Robin in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, and impressing audiences to the point that nearly everyone was clamoring for him to play Batman/Nightwing/Robin in an additional movie series… or to play any super hero, for that matter, with his name popping up in discussions for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘Doctor Strange’ and […]

  • ‘The Daily Bugle’ Hints At Another Spider-Man Villain, Plus A New Poster

    Posted Wednesday, December 18th, 2013 10:00 am GMT -5

    The infamous ‘The Daily Bugle’ tumble strikes again!  The blog has been “publishing” articles written by reporters that actually exist in the comics and making many obscure references to various characters from Spider-Man’s life.  These articles tie into next spring’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′… but how closely?  The references have run the gamut from big […]

    Posted Tuesday, December 17th, 2013 05:11 pm GMT -5

    With ‘Inhuman’ already having been pushed from a January 2014 release back to April, things haven’t been looking good for the title. In another surprise announcement, Marvel has stated that its writer, Matt Fraction, is now going to be replaced by Charles Soule. Soule will be working with lead artist Joe Madureira (‘Avenging Spider-Man’, ‘Uncanny X-Men’) to […]
