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 »

Comic of the Week (4/27/11) – Venom Issue 2

By Vince

After bonding with Eddie Brock and Mac Gargan, the Venom symbiote is now in the possession of the US Government. Looking to weaponize the symbiote, they choose a new host: none other than Peter Parker’s long-time “friend,” Flash Thompson. Aware of the monster sharing his body, Flash still accepts the mission, especially since it allows him to walk again after losing his legs. In ... Read More »

Comic of the Week (4/20/11) – Wolverine Issue 8

By Vince

Wolverine has literally been to Hell and back. For the last two issues, he’s been fighting to regain control of his own body from the demons currently possessing it. On the streets of San Francisco, Cyclops has assembled a team for a single purpose: to take Wolverine down. Meanwhile, some of Wolverine’s closest friends, both alive and dead, have entered his fractured mind to help him r... Read More »

Journey into Mystery Issue 622

Journey into Mystery Issue 622

By Vince

Anybody who listened to our first podcast back after hiatus knows that I’m a longtime fan of Thor and that my co-host most definitely is not. It’s not unusual for two people to wildly disagree on something, but there is an important distinction to be made. There’s a difference between “bad” and “not into it.” When something truly and irredeemably BAD comes... Read More »

I Am An Avenger – Post Mortem Short

I Am An Avenger – Post Mortem Short

By Roger

Nominated for a Will Eisner Comic Industry Award in the Best Short Story category, “Post Mortem“, found in “I Am An Avenger” issue 2, is a powerful story about how Steve Rogers copes with the loss of soldiers under his command. The story was written by Greg Rucka, with the script being written by Michael Lark and Stefano Gaudiano. The rest of the issue is a complete waste o... Read More »

Ultimate Spider-Man Gets New Costume

Ultimate Spider-Man Gets New Costume

By Roger

We still have three more Ultimate Spider-Man issues to go before we finally get to find out what is happening with Peter Parker. That said, Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso gave the New York Post a teaser/spoiler that very soon, Peter Parker won’t be wearing the Spider-Man costume. Just last week, we saw Parker take a bullet meant for Steve Rogers. We found out in “Ultimate A... Read More »

Comic of the Week (4/6/11) – Fear Itself #1

Comic of the Week (4/6/11) – Fear Itself #1

By Vince

Fear Itself #1 is the first issue of Marvel’s next big event. In an attempt to bring the stories of Thor and Captain America together before their movies this summer, Sin, the Red Skull’s daughter, has gained an Asgardian hammer of her own. Much like Thor’s Mjolnir, the hammer grants her the powers of a god. Meanwhile, Thor and his father come to blows while an undercurrent of fe... Read More »

Uncanny X-Men Issue 534.1

Uncanny X-Men Issue 534.1

By Vince

Despite being the flagship title for the franchise, Uncanny X-Men has been a bit inconsistent over the past few years. It’s not that Matt Fraction is a bad writer; I’m a fan of his work on Immortal Iron Fist and Invincible Iron Man. There’s just something about this title that doesn’t quite click with his style of writing. Perhaps it’s the ensemble cast or the positio... Read More »

Kapow: Cloak and Dagger Announced

Kapow: Cloak and Dagger Announced

By Roger

At this weekend’s Kapow Comic Con in London, Marvel announced a three-part mini-series for Cloak and Dagger. Nick Spencer will write while Emma Rios will handle the art. This makes me unbearably giddy. I remember when Cloak and Dagger were first introduced in 1982’s Spectacular Spider-Man #64. I would have been 11 years old. I also remember when they got their own series, which I colle... Read More »

X-23 Issue 8: Collision, Part 1

X-23 Issue 8: Collision, Part 1

By Roger

If you haven’t been keeping up with X-23, and frankly at this point, I wouldn’t blame you if you weren’t, allow me to fill you in. In the midst of her soul searching journey with Gambit, X-23 has discovered that the former director of Weapon X, Malcolm Colcord, is thinking about restarting the project. I mean, why not? It turned out so well with X-23. This isn’t really news... Read More »
