    Perhaps best known as Luke Cage and Jessica Jones‘ nanny, the mutant Avenger Squirrel Girl has risen from being something of a joke to the star of her own comic book series! Doreen Green possesses many animal-like attributes, including an actual tail, claws and the ability to communicate with squirrels, but her most powerful trait […]

    There has been a rumor for quite some time that the current story line that is tearing apart Marvel’s first family was going to bring an end to the ‘Fantastic Four‘ and now it is confirmed that the book will come to a close in 2015. Issue 645 next year will give us a final […]

  • First Look At ‘Axis: Carnage’ #1

    When we last saw Carnage in Kevin Shinick’s ‘Superior Carnage’ and Cullen Bunn’s ‘Superior Carnage Annual,’ he was leaving quite the body count in his wake. The fan favorite Spider-Man villain was up to his old tricks and showed that he was just as vicious and ruthless as ever. However, as part of Marvel’s next crossover […]

    Barbara Gordon is moving to a new hipster neighborhood called Burnside and her life is taking an all new direction in the pages of her book ‘Batgirl.’  Despite having just launched three years ago as part of DC’s ‘New 52′ initiative, the book is switching gears thanks to a new creative team, co-writers Cameron Stewart […]

    Over the past few years, the Winter Soldier has been popping up here and there despite being “dead.” Most recently, after starring in ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ in the spring, Bucky Barnes appeared in the limited series ‘Winter Soldier: The Bitter March’ and in the ensemble book ‘All-New Invaders’ alongside his World War II […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Captain America’ #25

    It has been quite some time since I’ve reviewed an issue of Rick Remender’s ‘Captain America’ because I lost interest in the series when the slow burn was entirely too slow for me. However, I have been keeping up with what’s happening and it’s hard not to catch up when you hear that Steve Rogers […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Death Of Wolverine’ #3

    In the second issue of the ‘Death of Wolverine,’ we left things off with Logan being severely broken and battered and Kitty Pryde having come to save the day! Injured, back against the wall and Lady Deathstrike coming in to deliver the killing blow, how can Kitty of all people stop her? How about by […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Moon Knight’ #8

    by

    This is the second issue of ‘Moon Knight’ under the guiding hand of Brian Wood and I have to admit, he’s been keeping enough of the style that Warren Ellis had used on the character to keep me interested. While he of course deviates a little by already setting up more clear cut multi-issue plot points, […]

  • Get A Preview Of ‘Constantine’ In This Video Featurette

    Comic book characters just can’t stop taking over popular media.  The next entry is NBC’s ‘Constantine’ based on the character John Constantine, star of the book ‘Hellblazer.’  Unlike more altruistic heroes, Constantine is a pretty shady character.  Nevertheless, he devotes his supernatural powers on the side of good against the forces of Hell. NBC has […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Thor’ #1

    So I’m going to say right off the bat that the first issue of the new installment of ‘Thor’ was well written and entertaining with great art to boot. We’ve all known that Thor was going to become unworthy to wield Mjolnir and be Thor for quite some time. We’ve also all known a new […]

    Next year Mike Mignola is adding more to his plate! In between outings in the Hellboy universe, he will now also be giving us a taste of ‘Frankenstein Underground.’ In a new Dark Horse Comics book, we’ll be seeing Frankenstein’s Monster from the Hellboy universe getting the spotlight!

    Some people were miffed that Aquaman was omitted from ‘Justice League: War’, when in the comics, he is a founding member of the Justice League.  But it looks like Warner Animation is making it up to the Sea King by placing him front and center in the next ‘Justice League’ movie in a storyline entitled […]

    The Plot “There’s a war… a terrible war. There will be chaos; rivers of blood in the streets…” Suffer the children. This would have been a better title for ‘Gotham’s’ second episode as young Bruce Wayne continues to “test” himself after the tragedy of losing his parents and two very unhinged partners prey upon the […]

    I won’t spoil things, but there is a reference to a “crisis” in the pilot episode of ‘The Flash.’  Older fans, and some younger, know that the Silver Age Flash Barry Allen, the first hero to kick off that era of super heroics, died in the famous miniseries ‘Crisis of Infinite Earths.’  A major part […]
