TMNT vs. Shredder: A 5-star conclusion. 13

Yup, this review is spoiler-free!TMNT #50 creative team: Tom Waltz (writer/story), Kevin Eastman (story), Bobby Curnow (story/editor), Mateus Santolouco (art), Cory Smith (flashback art), Ronda Pattison (colors), Shawn Lee (letters)Artwork by Mateus Santolouco and Ronda PattisonBack in 2011, IDW Publishing rebooted the TMNT franchise. Everything about the iconic mutants felt familiar, but there were new faces and plenty of organic and exciting story changes along the way. Who would have thought ...

Luther Strode vs. Shooter! The winner? Anyone reading the comic. 16

The Legacy of Luther Strode #2 was pretty much one ginormous, over-the-top, and awesome fight scene as Luther, Petra, and Delilah continued their search for Cain. Issue #3 can be described the exact same way, but that doesn't matter all that much because the handling of the characters is solid, and the hectic fighting is jaw-dropping. Seriously, comic book fights don't get much better than this, people.Time and time again, I've praised Justin Jordan's ability to write dialogue that simply feels ...

IDW's Overflowing with Turtle Power 14

Since the very first issue, IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has done an awesome job making this new take on the franchise feel fresh yet also enjoyably familiar. After several strong story arcs (and some excellent limited series, like Secret History of the Foot Clan), you can really tell a whole lot of love and planning went into crafting this new TMNT universe. And issue #49? Yeah, you can tell this one is building up anticipation for the ginormous issue #50 (it's 48 pages!), while also loos...

Welcome back to the Justice League, Bruce Timm 35

You've seen Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League, Batman Beyond,Superman: The Animated Series, or Justice League Unlimited, right? Assuming the answer is yes (and it really should be), that means you're familiar with Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett's work. Now the two have teamed-up to deliver a character-driven mystery that's sprinkled with creative fan service, loaded with exciting action, and packing a legitimately interesting approach to DC's trinity.There's been a wide variety of alterna...

Step aside, Batman, because it's time for Damian to lead the way! 36

DC's the New 52 had several memorable story arcs. Stuff like Geoff Johns' time with Aquaman and Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino's Green Arrow run immediately come to mind. A number of titles earned a huge amount of praise and understandably so, but one that I believe was underrated is Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason'sBatman and Robin. Sure, the quality jumped around a bit in the middle, but the opening story, Born to Kill, is amazing, and there are several other highlights, like Damian att...

This one's for us, Morph! 11

*Click here for obvious yet appropriate music*As someone who was born in 1985, I absolutely loved the X-Men animated series back when I was growing up. It doesn't hold up all that well now, but when it originally aired, it was a total blast and left me feeling in love with the X-Men and their mythos. It was fun, colorful, and embraced the mutant team's world with open arms. In fact, this cartoon - along with the Spider-Man and Batman animated series - is the reason I became interested in comics....

Still old, still Logan 20

There are many great Wolverine stories and writer Mark Millar and artist Steve McNiven's Old Man Logan is absolutely one of them. Despite this new follow-up having the brilliant art team of Andrea Sorrentino and Marcelo Maiolo, it's easy to go into this one with a bit of skepticism. While McNiven's artwork in the original arc was nothing short of stunning, it just wouldn't be as good without Millar's compelling, emotional, and interesting story. Now, Brian Michael Bendis has the difficult task o...

An Epic Stroll Down Memory Lane 0

Holy sweet nostalgia, Batman! This is the best $3.99 you're ever going to spend. If you're a Turtles fan, there's literally no reason not to buy this. Even if you own an original copy of the 1984 Mirage issue that started it all, this will give you the chance to keep that copy nice and clean and use this fresh one for reading. And, if you've never had the chance to read the very first Turtles adventure (understandable seeing as the back issues are expensive and graphic novels are costly as well)...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro-Series #4 Review 5

Picking up directly after the events of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #8, the team splits up to find Splinter, but all Leonardo discovers is a mountain of Foot ninjas.The Good:This issue is nothing but pure action and Leo showcasing why he's one of the most talented ninjas among his brothers. There's quite literally only 2 pages of set up ("Let's split up and find Splinter!") before Leonardo comes face-to-face with a sea of blade wielding Foot ninjas. We get a look inside Leo's mind and it's nice...

Venom 16 Review 16

Now a rookie member of the Secret Avengers, Venom oversees a seemingly effortless prisoner transport that quickly turns into an must-read bloodbath.The Good:It's simply amazing how writer Rick Remender can take such a basic premise and turn it into an absolutely awesome issue. Flash Thompson has one mundane mission: make sure The Human Fly, a character you likely don't care about or never even heard of, is safely transported on a high speed train to The Raft, a prison facility for superhuman vil...

Go ninja, go ninja, GO! 14

It's such a rare and beautiful thing when a franchise can return from your childhood with the same vibe it once had and survive the transition to modern times. The turtles are every bit as lovable as before, there's just 90% less cowabunga being screamed and, thankfully, no Super Shredder to be seen. Overflowing with nostalgia and a whole lot of fun, IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is something both new and old fans of the heroes in a half shell should check out.But IDW knows one Ninja Turtle...

Is it time for Frank's punishment? 2

If you're a fan of action, this is an issue you absolutely cannot miss. Even if you don't like the Punisher or don't follow him, it doesn't matter. The issue is extremely simplistic and follows one clear objective. The story? Norman is pissed at Frank Castle, and he's sending every resource he has to put him down once and for all. This includes an army of glider troops and none other than Wolverine's son, Daken. So does the Tommy Lee Jones look-a-like punish the Punisher? You'll just have to rea...

Step aside Avengers, the Thunderbolts are running the show 0

Have I ever told you I absolutely love Andy Diggle? Because I do. Warren Ellis had a nearly flawless run on the Thunderbolts and it felt like no one would ever be able to even near its level of greatness. However Diggle not only picked up the title, but he completely slapped Ellis out of the way and made it his own. So what is one of the first signs of knowing a title is great? For me, it's when you have barely any interest in the characters, yet you find yourself emotionally attached to the sto...

We always knew Barton had anger issues... 10

Clint Barton is fed up with Norman Osborn...So what does he do about it? Just like any logical man, he gears up and heads over to Avengers Tower, in an attempt to KILL all of the Dark Avengers and of course, Tommy Lee Jones...er...Norman Osborn. Well, if you're looking for a no-brainer actionfest, you've come to the right place. Barton may be hot headed, but he isn't dumb enough to believe basic firearms could take down Ares or Moonstone. But I didn't mention Sentry? Well, apparently he KNEW Sen...

Gambit's Origin: A Road We've Travelled Many Times Before 0

This is my first review...Enjoy (hopefully!)As a big fan of Gambit, I was extremely mixed on this one. Ever since the announcement of this issue came out, I've been wondering what this issue could offer about his past that we haven't already seen. Unfortunately, I was right and it really only elaborated on events we already know of.  That certainly doesn't make it a bad read, though. If you're a fan of Gambit, it will certainly keep your interest...Just not bring any twists or turns to the table...
