    Posted Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 07:00 pm GMT -4

    The current series started out pretty rough and I dropped it after just a few issues.  But since it was a slow week for DC Comics, I opted to check out this annual which kicks off a new storyline.  In ‘Forever Evil’ #2, Johnny Quick hurled the Teen Titans into the time stream.  The story […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Sandman: Overture’ #1

    Posted Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 01:00 pm GMT -4

    Neil Gaiman’s genre-shattering series is back in this miniseries, celebrating the epic’s debut 25 years ago.  Gaiman hasn’t missed a beat… in fact, he may have gotten better!  While the original was always “heady” and “literate”, the opening sequence in this book made my head swim and it didn’t let up very much from there.  […]

    When we last saw the Avengers in their last ‘Infinity’ tie-in, things were looking extremely bleak in their war with the Builders.

    Posted Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 07:00 pm GMT -4

    Usually we don’t tend to cover the Ultimate Universe line of comics from Marvel. It has its own continuity and the two tend to not play with one another that much. After the events of ‘Age of Ultron’ though, we found Galactus in the Ultimate Universe and he was full of ‘Hunger‘. With it being […]
