Thursday Night is Movie Night 0

The GoodAnother month goes by and another spectacular...er, superior (sorry, Marvel branding guys) issue of Superior Foes of Spiderman hits the shelves! Romance! Betrayal! Deep-fried rats! Yes, boys and girls, very few books will titillate the audience with such promises AND actually deliver on them. But enough compelling buzz-words to get you lining up at the door for this month's tale of blue-collar criminals. Let's dive right in to why you should by this book.You probably don't need me ...

Whole at last. 0

THE GOODAh, Legion old buddy, old pal! What a ride you've taken us on! So sad that it has to end! But let's not tarry over that sweet sorrow and dive straight into the meat of the issue! After 24 harrowing issues, we come to the last stop on the X-Men Legacy express. And it's a doozy. With Legion's powers spiraling out of control, involuntarily sponging up mutant psyche's left and right, there is so much to love about this issue. For one, the always impeccable Simon Spurrier pens an amaz...

Quick preface: It sucks beyond most call-girl's capacities to deliver such a low rating unto this issue, but I have to do it. Beyond any overriding desire to remain objective, this month's issue really earned this 2-star rating. And I like this book. But at least I get to sing its praises first, however briefly.The GoodI'm fairly certain I'm one of the few vocal contingents in support of this book on this site. But any and all real credit goes to Simon Spurrier whose writing is the the mai...

My Middle Finger 1

The GoodWelcome back, boys and girls, to another installment of "Comics Done Right" starring Brian K. Vaughan, Marcos Martin, and Muntsa Vicente! Have I made it clear through previous reviews that I love this book? If not, let me go on the record by saying that if this book was a woman, I'd quit my job, fly halfway across the country, and adopt her neo-bohemian, post-modern, vegan ways just to be with her. Yup. I'm kinda head over heels with The Private Eye and it makes sense, since clearly...

Some Hands Will Always Shake 1

The GoodFor a series that's left me enamored with Legion's quest for a proactive, preemptive solution to mutant bigotry, issue #13 was...surprising. And not necessarily in the best of ways. But wait, vitriol-thirsty internet X-bashers! We'll get to the bad in a moment!I deliberated quite a bit before deciding whether this book was a shaky 3 or a solid 2. Luckily, shaky 3 won out. But only barely.This issue has Legion travelling to London to try to convince some other notable U.K. born muties to...

Careful With My Christian, Handsome... 1

The GoodAh, dystopia. Over the years, especially since the 2000s, we've been treated to so many flavors of broken futures, that it's really a buyer's market when it comes to this particular brand of fiction. But The Private Eye really knocks it out of the park in the most pleasingly unexpected ways.In case you're not already up to speed, the world of The Private Eye is set in a future where everyone maintains a secret identity after the crash of a world-wide cloud network spilled everyone's d...

M is for Awesome. 0

So, I've been meaning to write more reviews for this title, but sadly, this is my first go. I say sadly, because I love this newest incarnation of X-Men Legacy, and any amount of good press (however unheard) I hope helps. Why do I hope it helps? Well...that should be segue enough to lead us straight into the problems this series is up against. ConsI hate to say it, but the best art in this series was several issues ago by Jorge Molina. Not that regular penciler Tan Eng Huat delivers lacklu...

Flashback Central 0

So, we're four issues deep and I can proudly say that my fears have been totally assuaged! Except for the one where this crudely thrown together team and its rather obscurely placed opening arc will be an enormous flop.Thus far, I've been willing to accept a slow-burn approach to the latest, greatest incarnation of T-bolts. Issue #1? Solid. The next two...meh, not so much. But, hey, I was willing to keep the faith. I was prepared to wait and see where things landed before dipping my quill in the...

First off, I realize that this review is several years late. Don't blame me. Blame the ass-backward, gilded armpit of Texas that I currently reside in. The only comic shop in town likely to even have carried it was clear across town and I was a young man too busy clumsily flirting with the demon drink to spend money on such superfluous commodities such as gas.Luckily, several years and a sober(er) state of mind later, I've finally gotten around to finding and reading the much vaunted, little kno...

As a long-time Marvel reader, I can honestly say that the 'Thunderbolts' title has rarely blown my proverbial skirt up. The initial incarnation? Rad. Every team since? Insert copious amounts of "meh" here. Which is why I'm glad they've summarily abandoned the standard T-bolts tropes. A team full of my favorite anti-heroes? Yes, please. Now, the sensible adult in me (I promise, he's in there somewhere) calmly reminded me that this team of Thunderbolts has been compiled less out of a...
