Not The Worst, but getting there. 1

Not a lot of people are fans of Aquaman. That's just the truth. He has been the butt of many a superhero joke for decades. And even though there have been more than a few stories and incarnations that paint him in a more attractive light, Arthur Curry's good name has been dragged through the mud far too long to be easily cleaned now.But in the past few years, DC and WB have tried to do just that. With bigger and better roles in big comics stories, support behind his own comics titles, the promi...

...Its Michael Bay 0

  Its 3:50 in the morning. I just saw the over 2 and-a-half hour attack on the sense the world will come to know as Transformers:Dark of The Moon. I want to sleep... but i have work in just a couple hours, and i dont think i could wake up in so short a time span. so... lets review.  Visuals  this is a no brainier of a topic. A multi-million dollar summer trilogy instillation is bound to be nothing less than visually breathtaking. Bay knows how to make things look good. Everything from the 50 foo...

keep digging your hole 2

 Those who know me know how how much of a stickler i am for original canon. Every comic movie has irked me in at least a dozen ways with their pointless and unintelligent changes to the wonderful works of art they draw from.   The friend i saw the midnight showing with (a moderate comic reader who knows allot of the broader strokes of comic stories, but few of the fine details) knew this about me, and suggested i enjoy the movie as a continuation of the current franchise, and not a movie ...

Making you care... 7

 How can you not care about Spider-Man? That's right. You can't. There are very few Marvel comics i actually take the time to read, but i find myself drawn to the Ultimate Spider-Man line. Perhaps is because everything that happens in the Ultimate U doesnt really count to me like i does in the 616.  But anyway, onto the issue. As is fairly obvious due to the large black tab across the top of this and several other Ultimate covers, Ultimate Spider-Man's life is coming to an end as we know it. And...

Tying up loose ends 2

  Following his recent stint in Time Travelers prison, Booster is sent to the future to fix one of the major problems his future is currently facing. In classic Booster Gold fashion, Carter's attempt to rectify this serious issue hits a rather hilarious snag. When Booster shows up in the future, he immediately jumps into action helping The Legion of Super Heroes with Validus, one of their reoccurring baddies. But the Legion, who have never seen or heard of Booster, proceeds to beat and interroga...

The S stands for.... 9

      If you've ever seen me post in a Superman related topic, you've probably read the words "I hate Superman" in some variation of bold text and marked with one or several explanation points.  However, this is a half truth.     Just as with many Marvel characters, i love the core of the character, but hate almost every interpretation in recent years. A man with Brainiac level thinking power getting tricked repeatedly by lead walls. A man with Flash level speeds being slow enough to get decked ...

Orsion Scott Card FTW 0

(Note: This review covers the "Ender's Game: Battle School" Hard cover, containing issues 1-5)   Remember when you first found out "Where The Wild Things Are" was becoming a movie, and you literally squirmed with delight? How all you could think about was that it was your favorite book of all time as a kid. How, if thie movie was good, it would be your favorite of all time?  Now, imagine being the only one. When i first read that the greatest story from one of my favorite writers of all time was...

...wow. 0

 Its not very often a single issue comic really makes you feel something powerful. And its even less likely when you start off hating it.  I have always had a serious issue with men writing female-focused stories. Sometimes i feel like they just cant put themselves in a powerful womans shoes, and especially not an iconic powerful woman like Wonder Woman. its not something most men can manage, and i often feel like they shouldnt try. A perfect example of this is in this issue when WOnder Woman ac...

Ghosts of Angel's Past... 0

 If your a fan of Buff or Angel, the stories of Angel's past are always interesting to see and piece together.   Barbary Coast seems to focus on Angel searching for answers in late 1800's- early1900's San Fransisco.  While most fans can guess where the story goes from there, interesting aspects still present themselves. some of the story seems to be set in a demon bar of the times, and a mysterious woman with an equally mysterious tattoo pulls some crazy... well, read and see.  While most of the...

Codex: Origins 2

 As a huge fan of web show, this comic was a must grab.    For those of you who havent been introduced to it, the Guild focuses on the players of a MMORPG very similar to World of Warcraft. The show is freely available on netflix, their website "Watchtheguild.com", and Xbox360, so theres no excuse for not knowing whats going on when you read this comic... unless you dont have internet. i guess thats an excuse.   as a casual WoW gamer, and a fan of Felicia Day, the Guild hits allot of funny bones...

Collateral Damage has been Approved! 1

  Remember all f the insane thoughts you had when Arnold was elected governor? The crazy images of him mowing down his political enemies with an arsenal of.. well, everything? The idea of him flexing his political muscles made many a giggle... and now, this comic makes us laugh out loud with the same concept! Writen by the same guy who brought us President Evil (which i have not read, but now probably will), this shameless mad cap inanity of an adventure manages to do something most titles of ...

Cool idea 0

 As a major fan of the A-team tv show, my biggest concern with the upcoming movie is that it wont feel the same. I understand that the characters will look and sound differently, but im worried that the movie will miss the overall mark that the 5 season tv show painted.   This comic was a fantastic way to at least ease slightly quell that fear.   The comic has the classic feel of the show teamed with the more current times and upcoming characters.   I was concerned about two things in the upcomi...

Meh Monkey 1

 The most exciting new character in the Marvel U... has a pretty boring origin.  Though not as bad as i expected, the story of The Monkey turned Hit-Monkey was still very strained. I was very pleased that Marvel didnt go with the played out Human-to-monkey essence transfer, but still...   I had a bit of trouble believing that a bunch of chimps would know the correct treatment for hypothermia, and the only thing in this comic worse than Marvel trying to make me believe a Hitman would spend what h...

Red Robin Returns... To Gotham 0

 I honestly cant think of any better way to finally bring Tim out of Dick Grayson's shadow that to put him up against one of Batman's greatest foes, and thats exactly what were seeing in Red Robin. Gone are the days of Timjust biding his time until help arrives, or avoiding the main conflict for fear of being overtaken. Tim is taking things head on, and its great to see.  This issue was very light. Like most "part one"s, this issue seemed to simply be setting up for the rest of the arc. Still, Y...

Fail-ish Fight... EPIC SOUND BUBBLES!! 0

   Siege continues to bring the sweet in a very unpredictable way in issue 2.   there are allot of small, annoying things in this issue. for starters, it seemed like the war was being waged by foot soldiers on both sides, while all the actual big names just kinda stood around and watched the big brawl between Sentry and Ares. It also seemed like Osborn's suit is a piece of crap, as he got hit with simple projectiles twice in the issue with little to no warning. Comon man! if your radar can sense...

man! 17 and 1! 3

 Secret Six has had a briliant run. They have been my number one comic for a while, and i love every character involved (even though i used to hate about half of them).  but this.... this was bad.  The story was jumbled. A majority of the story was riding rather heavily on two rather crappy Black Lanterns. And all of the bits that would have been pretty awesome for the fans of the teams and characters where just glazed over.  the best part of this issue is easily the fight between Catman and Bro...

Robin vs. batgirl 0

ok. I know there are tons of you who hate both Stephanie and Damian. Well.... you shouldn't read this issue.  Its a mirror image of  Barbara  and Dick all those years ago, duke'n it out to prove who's the better bat kid. We also get some Actual Barb on Dick (er...Batman) Action, as the two reminisce on the good old days when they where the brats in the capes.  The story runs smoothly enough. A couple of cool characters climb their way out of the underused box and take it to Dick while the bat-mi...

As Journey to the Center of the Goblin continues, an angry Nate Grey is breaking down the doors of H.A.M.M.E.R.'s Head quarters with every intention of meeting the Dark Avengers.  Crazy you say? I thought so too. I mean, with Sentry, Ares, Omega, and Mimic all sharing space in the oposition, even i assumed Nate would be broken down.  ...what really happens? Well... read it and see.  my hat comes right off to Paul Cornell, as he managed to toss some interesting ideas onto these pages. And it is o...

"Drake is different." - Ra's al Ghul 0

as a longtime Tim Drake fan, i've grown rather tired of seeing him being portrayed as the weaker Bat-kid. They always pointed out that hes not as "by the seat of his pants" as Dick, not "a street tough brawler" like Jason, and not as "raised by assassins" as Batgirl.    But this issue finally does what i've been waiting for since Batman died: shows that Tim Drake is is as close to the Dog Gamn Batman as your gonna get.  The conclusion to "Council of Spiders"has Tim in the middle of Ra's al Ghul'...

wow. The first issue of BN. Wonder Woman was kind of a let down, and as a result i almost didnt pick this one up. But as i flipped through it to make my final decision, i saw an image that made struck me dumb immediately. I slapped it shut, payed the lady, and hurried home, struggling to purge the image from my mind until i got home.  The actual read of this issue is pretty awesome. One of my favorite characters kinda bites the BN bullet in this one (read), and there is a pretty cool ... i guess...

Harley fans REJOICE! 6

the best thing about Christmas (..you know, besides the presents, and the family time, and... you know... the seasons true however-slightly-incorrect-on-a-calendar meaning) is hands down the seasonal comics. A time for Hulk's to throw snowballs, Children to make dead-batman snowmen, and for Harley Quinn to visit her family!  If you dont often read the Master work that is Gotham City Sirens, you should start right here with issue 7. In this issue, we see our not-so-heroins x-mas trips. Catwoman v...

Masterwork! 1

its not often that one can find a comic book both adults and children can enjoy. and the few that exist are usually one-time reads, or shorts series.  Bone is the massive exception.  In case you haven't heard of this piece of art already, Bone is centered around Fone Bone, one of 3 residents of Boneville who where run out of town (actually, Phoney Bone was driven out. His two cousins just tagged along to help Phoney survive out in the world without his vast fortune... which he lost).  The trio g...

i would first of all like to say that i read this on My ipod using the IVerse comicbook app. I have it and ComiXology installed, but i must say Iverse's whole look and feel is much cooler than CX's blandness.   The Trouble With Katie Rodgers follows the life of a young british woman living in New York as a publicist. The parts you can guess are that shes strong willed and independent. The stuff you cant is her inter office relationships and mishaps, and the many things that can go wrong when you...

Ok, if your reading anything with Superboy Prime in it (he aint superman prime and im not calling him that),  your obviously ok with his whiney-boy attitude.   Part one of this BN tie in had him powerless and back in his own world, where clark Prime read in a comic book that the Black Lanterns where coming for him (Prime's earth is supposed to be our earth, so DC is actually comics that he reads rather angrily as he hates all of DC's characters).   When Black Lantern Alexander Luthor shows up, h...

I am a huge X-Man fan. You have no idea. So just like with "Spiderman: return of the Spot", the anti-Marvel voice in my head just STFU when i saw this sucker on the shelf.  OK, so X-man is trying to make his way back into the world, and when Norman finds out, he decides Nate doesnt fit the requirements to play on the Dark Avengers team. So he has to be taken care of.   Not gonna tell you the rest, but this issue focuses allot on Nate's power levels.  Idk whats ins store for Nate, but i'll be tun...

Old School Review- Legends of The Dark Night: Destiny 1

The Legend of the Dark Knight series is a masterpiece. Every story oozing with mystery and adventure.  In Destiny, Batman meets a young foreign man, who has donned the sheild and sword of a viking to try and save his home toen, which is being overrun by toxic waist dumping thugs. The viking comes to the states, to raise awareness of the travesties of his town, and bring the Gotham based organization to its knees.  But as the two work together to bring down the villains, Batman notices that they ...

You want the Flash? I'll give you the Flash! ...or rather, this book will. Kinda.   you see, this Blackest Night tie in does a pretty good job of showing you who Barry Allen is. Right off the bat, Barry is multi tasking like only he can, dispatcing of villains and making terrifying discoveries all in relativly no time at all.  But this story isnt just about the Speedster. The Rouges find out early on that they have a bit of a score to settle with the Black Lanterns too. Lots of dead Rouges means...

 This first issue delving into what will be siege has got my attention. Pretty much, Siege: Cabal has shown me exactly what i was looking for (and failed to find) in the rest of Norman Osborn's run as top dog: really good scheming. Not just by Norman, mind you, but by Dr. Doom, And Loki as well. And the action in this story is more of what i like, less punching of people and more calculated response. And i'm soooo excitred to find out who Norman's mystery guest is, mostly becuase of the way ever...

More of this please! 0

The cover gives you the basic Idea. wherever it was they where holding Mon-EL, it seems they've let him go, and with his new found freedom he's got a new perspective on how to protect Metropolis!  The cool thing about comics WITHOUT Superman in them is that they actually look into the characters, instead of just being a Showcase for Superman's powers. The interaction's between characters in this issue is superb to say the least. And with no Superman, the plot twists are actually invintive and in...

JLA 39 - Detroit fans only! 0

JLA DETROIT that is.   Another of the Blackest night tie ins, JLA #39 is a blast from the past... if your past involved being a hardcore fan of the so-so adventures of JLAD.  I say hardcore because all of the Detroit members who everyone loved (Guy Gardener, Martian Manhunter, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Elongated Man, and Aquaman) fail to make more than a one page flashback cameo if that. Luckily, this issue isn't solely about the revival of Vibe (yeah. its ok. Don't worry about it). There is a ...

as much as i love the characters at the center of this Angel Spin-off series, the story itself has been a little on and off for me.  the first issue made me feel like this was going to be more a character comic. But issues 2 and 3 where all about fighting demons, with this last issue seriously reminding me of an anime as the fight that began in 3 completely  dominated issue 4, and probably wont end until issue 5.   Dont get me wrong, i love the demon fighting and whatever else. its just not the ...

 The last dozen or so issues of Invincible have been crazy enough as it is. Massive, earth shattering battle asfter massive earth shattering battle. And just as you think Mark is finally gonna slide back into simpler times, this slaps you in your face and calls you a fool.   Ottley's work on this book is fantastic. His unique ability to portray exact emotions in his characters faces has matured beautifully during his world on HAUNT, and seeing it back in Invincible is a wet dream come to life.  ...

Kirkman has a way of bringing strange and hilarious characters into his stories thats just amazing, and he does that a couple of times over this issue.   People said in the first issues reviews over and over that this isnt an origional concept. and i can see what they mean. As you read through Haunt, you feel a little Spiderman, a little Spawn, an little Punsiher, and a litt...

Luckily, there was a second printing, and thats what i got.  I admit, there is a point in the middle of the story that seems like it waas too quick a transition. If your like me, you skipped back and read the previous coupleof pages again to see if you just missed something, and then it clicks that the event in question was skipped over for whatever reason.

A cool Retelling of a classic story... 0

Muppets. You have got to love them. They've retold dozens of stories with their Muppety twists, and most of them have been phenominal.  Muppet Robin Hood is no exception.  Asa lifelong Muppet fan, my opinion may be a bit biased, but i'dlike to think its not becuase i hated Muppets in Space and that Muppet Cinderella.  But their telling of Robin Hood is back on the old "good" track.  Only a couple of minor issues with this comic.

Not the biggest Flash fan. Nor am i that well versed on the Blackhawks and that era. But this story is... its just good.   My favorite Flash stories have always been the ones where either he had to be in 5 places at once, or when he couldn't use his powers at all.   This story puts Barry Allen in the past, having to wait out a broken leg before he can run his way back to the future (hehe...). While there, Flash meets the Black Hawks, and subsequently gets drafted into a war.   Its interesting to...
