Single Best Comic Issue of the year.. period. 2

I have always had a deep respect for Captain Marvel and Captain Marvel fans. Though I might not always show (sometimes It might seem the opposite) it because I have remained in many respects, completely disinterested in new attempts to bring the character into focus (be it cartoon, comic, or movie). This is largely because they tend to modernize the character so much that he is nearly unrecognizable as the same character from the golden age. They have often completely ignored his complete char...

Great Recovery 1

So I have been really liking the Gotham Series. but Last Episode was one of the worst things I had ever seen. This Makes up for it.(quick and dirty)This episode not only delivers what I expect as a good plot, (last episode not withstanding) but overseeds that.and even supercedes it. This is everything one could hope for Without A OPENGUIN SCENE AT ALL. Penguin seems to be the goto plot lately for entertainment in this series, and yet he doesn't even show for more than a minute. This is a plot th...

magical elf juice breaks the laws of physics with 500 proof liquor. 2

this is the best Flash episode yet, things are coming together cohesively, the writing is better, the acting is better (with a few exceptions) the chemistry is better, the Music is toned down, (but still invasive and annoying)So the basic premise of this episode seems to be to provide feats for the Flash, which is a little overloaded but effective, we have Barry asking how fast he needs to go to do certain things, repeatedly. and although this is kind of fangasm entertaining, I think they put t...

THEY'RE MAKING A LEFT TURN.... 1

I have not hidden the fact that this IMHO is the best CBTV series on television....BUT, this episode, is liable to make it second worst (nothing can defeat the bad that was Smallville, well third worse, Lois and Clark....I wish they make a good superman CBTV one of these days)While Flash Started poorly and seems to be getting better with leaps and strides.. Gotham, really really faltered with this episode.First sin of a director is to focus on child actors....children can't act (mostly) they lac...

Miles, I AM YOUR FATHER...... 0

I have not read the previous Ultimate Spiderman series (or is it Series') so this run is my first exposure to it, so far I have been very impressed, seemed to have teetered off after issue 3, but it is still maintaining that lowered rating without going lower. (if you stick to the 5 stars, and not 10, or 20 or 100)the Artwork is still pretty good, not my favorite art in comics, but it works for the subject matter. Not a fan of the fire....but in certain scenes it kind of works, as it engulfs ...

Bats, Maps, and cults, Oh my! 2

The First issue of Gotham Academy Blew me away, this one was more of the same...but a little less.We are receiving more character development from our primary two characters Olive and Maps, but this issue spends more time developing protagonists and tertiary characters, like Pomeline, whom seems to be the infinitely ubiquitous snobby bad girl with who constantly thinks of others, as lesser pawns in the high school game, and introducing characters we saw but didn't hear, lik,e Mr. Scarlet. The w...

M Night Shamalame, M=Marvel 4

Spoilers and Ranting... unprofessionallike don't expect this to be up to my normal par for reviews.So I was enjoying this show last season, not as much as some people, they have a serious acting quality problem, but I was at least enjoying it. This has become an extremely predictable show which negates one its primary draws, its unpredictabilitySeriously it seems that every single last episode is based on the idea of a twist, (what a twist, when I know its coming) seriously, whether its Fitxz...

The Aftermath of the last episode, and things are already perculating to another eruption. 2

Last episode had a triumphant climatic eruption of plot worthy of a proper season finale. So this episode clearly has a lot of aftermath to deal with. The first bit of this is how the whole world came crumbling down, The GCPD abandoned Gordon when his need was most dire, Mooney is now going to have to deal with Penguiin as an equal and rival, Gordons wife is at her whits end, after being kidnapped by a psychopath, the plot between penguin and Falconie has been revealed making every interaction ...

MEANWHILE: in stereotyped Hannah Barabara comicbook world. 0

I bought this on a whim because I have been loving some of the New 52 (and pre52 GL stuff) Geoff Johns material. So I was amped for excitement, I was on board to an intricate story with a new take on the whole premise of superman, maybe some new ideas. so far I don't see any of that.The story starts with a quick splash page over view of the life and times of the man of steel, there isn't anything wrong with this page, its just old info for new readers. Lets call it a jumping on point. I have a ...

Not a Batman Comic. 0

I had such High hopes for this comic, I even gave the first issue of this arc a 4/5 , but this was completely different from that first issue.The first issue we had a big mystery, lots of batman and a fair amount of detective work, all with a pace that made the comic last a little while, this issue seemed to be over in a flash, as everything seemed to be rushed to get to the ending, with the lack of Batman and zero detective work whatsoever, this was a huge disappointment.The artwork remains the...

biggest surprise of the year! 1

When I saw this was coming out, I figured it was an easy pass, I have no need to reset my pull list to make room for what was bound to be something I'd hate. at best I thought it could be some sort of pre-teen sitcom like Saved by the Bell, or an attempt to jump in with a Teen Titans cartoon wannabe, or Hogwarts with occult and superpowers, standard adolescent anime. At worse it could be Dawson's Creek or Smallville. In any event it was destined to be the thing I hate most in my comics/cartons/...

it all comes together....and its everything I could have wanted 1

This show has been pretty awesome so far, and not just 'for a CBTVshow' but pretty awesome for ANY tv show. but this episode has sealed it into one of my favorite tv shows of all time, certainly my favorite show currently running.It starts off giving us exactly what we have all been waiting for, with the penguin being the penguin we dream of at night. I knew it would happen eventually but I didn't realize I would be this satisfied. the walk, the smile (the sneer), the shoes and his umbrella, the...

maintaining a constant level of mediocrity (still better than Smallville) 3

the plots are getting better, but the general malaise in which the camera work is handled still jars the senses. the music is better than 'Arrow' which still maintains the most obnoxious music and sound of any tv show on air currently. The music still has a tendency to be louder than the actual action, as well as the sound level of talking. It also seems to have the same Arrow fault of ramping up at the wrong times distracting from the actual plot of the show.then there was Snard....wow, I like ...

higher score the second time around 0

The first time I watched the flash Pilot, I wrote it off as awful garbage. Gave it a 2 outa 5 (I give a generous extra star for all pilots because of the nature of was a pilot should be.) after seeing so many favorable reviews I decided to give it another chance, but I found something out that drastically changed my opinion. The original showing, I watched it in HD, this is a very bad idea and I will go over why.Cinematography and Camera WorkWOW this is so incredibly bad, with bad tracking in ev...

First Review, EVER!! 2

Stepping in this comic waiting to be disappointed. Not for any specific reason, just after coming down from the Manapul Creative team (which was AMAZING) into creators I know nothing about, it just set me up for disaster. I was obviously wrong in my assumptions. This is clearly an understatement as I am quite enthralled with the story already.Mild Spoilers ahead (located in The Story)The ArtworkI opened to the first page and instantly felt the buyers remorse. This was looking like I may be in f...
