Fantastic Four Issue 605

Fantastic Four Issue 605

By Roger

With “Forever” taken care of, and Jonathan Hickman’s amazing run on Fantastic Four coming to an end soon, you might wonder what the writer has in store for his last few issues. As Vince and I said during a recent podcast episode, how can you top “Forever“? While I was not expecting him to coast till his next project, I certain was not expecting a story as poignant as ...

The Amazing Spider-Man Issue 682

The Amazing Spider-Man Issue 682

By Roger

Spider-Man has been ridding one hell of a wave as of late. Between his team-ups with the Avengers, FF, and various duo story-arcs, he’s proven that he can hold his own amongst (and against) the best. While that may not be anything new, what is new is that his personal life is finally looking up as well. Sure, he and Carly decided to call it quits, but MJ’s already back in the picture, ...

The Incredible Hulk Issue 6

The Incredible Hulk Issue 6

By Roger

As I’d said on the podcast after The Incredible Hulk’s relaunch, I was kinda diggin’ the new storyline. It certainly wasn’t rocket science, and the art had its strength and weaknesses, but overall, I was enjoying it. That isn’t to say there weren’t massive plot holes, the likes of which even the Hulk couldn’t have made; but I was willing to let Jason Aaron... Read More »

Dead Man’s Run Issue 0

Dead Man’s Run Issue 0

By Vince

I was very happy to receive an advance copy of Dead Man’s Run #0, a preview issue of the latest comic from Greg Pak (Incredible Hulk, Vision Machine) and Tony Parker (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?). The preview issue will be available in comic shops this week. As Pak states in his afterword, Dead Man’s Run is based on a simple premise; “Jailbreak from Hell”. While th... Read More »

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man v2 Issue 1

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man v2 Issue 1

By Roger

I’ll admit that my first reading of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man v2 Issue 1 wasn’t under the best settings. It was past two a.m., I’d had to pop a few pain killers, and though groggy, I couldn’t fall asleep. At times like these, I like to turn on my iPad and enjoy a few new comics. Is this fair to the writers? Not always. However most times, I stand by my initial opinionsR... Read More »

Red Hood and the Outlaws Issue 1

Red Hood and the Outlaws Issue 1

By Vince

Red Hood and the Outlaws is undoubtedly one of the worst comics I have ever read. It’s not Neonomicon bad, but it’s a solid contender for second place. When DC initially announced this title as part of their New 52, I knew there was little chance of it being good and had no intention of picking it up. However, when I started hearing the chorus of complaints, I couldn’t resist. Li... Read More »

Captain America Movie Review

Captain America Movie Review

By Vince

Finally, the long wait is over; Captain America: The First Avenger is now in theaters. I managed to catch a midnight release screening, and was very impressed. I’m going to attempt to make this review as spoiler-free as possible, but if you know the basic story of Captain America, you know the movie. Steve Rogers was a skinny kid, unfit to serve in the military, no matter how much he was wil... Read More »

Thor Movie Review

Thor Movie Review

By Vince

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to wait several days to see Thor; several long, agonizing days. I’ll keep this review short since I’ll be the 5,682,744th person to review the movie online. Yes, I’m a total Thor fanboy; I’ve never tried to hide that. That said, I’m going to at least attempt to be objective. As a film, Thor is decent. As far as summer bloc... Read More »

Return of the Dapper Men

Return of the Dapper Men

By Roger

When the Will Eisner Comic Industry Award nominations were released several weeks ago, one title jumped out more than any other. Nominated in five categories, Return of the Dapper Men caught everyone’s eye. For those wondering, here are the categories which it, as well as writer Jim McCann and artist Janet Lee, were nominated in: • Best Publication for Teens • Best Graphic Album—Ne... Read More »
