Episode 135: What If…?

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle What If…?, a long-running, multi-volume series from Marvel. Most folks are familiar with the concept, but for those of you who are new to comics, What If…? explores different possibilities, as the name implies. Vince and I each selected ten issues spanning many years. We discussed the Fantastic Five (with both Spider-Man and Silver Surfer joining the team ... Read More »

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, ...

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 »

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 »

With only a handful of issues left in his years-long run on the title, Pak is still finding new and interesting stories to tell. In this issue, Bruce Banner races to save the love of his life, Betty Ross, before he loses h... Read More »

Comic of the Week (5/4/11) – Fear Itself: Spider-Man #1

Comic of the Week (5/4/11) – Fear Itself: Spider-Man #1

By Vince

With another big event in “Fear Itself,” we’re of course treated to a whole lineup of tie-in comics. Event tie-ins have been very inconsistent over the years, with probably more bad than good. However, Fear Itself: Spider-Man plays its role perfectly. It expands on the story of the Fear Itself miniseries, without being required reading for the overall story. At the same time, it ...
