Comic Reviews: Infamous Iron Man and Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye!


doomInfamous Iron Man #1 (Marvel Comics)

Once again, a major Marvel event has been delayed. But it’s still business as usual for Marvel, as they’re releasing Infamous Iron Man this week. The first of two series spinning out of the end of Civil War II, this series finds Victor Von Doom taking the mantle of the Armored Avenger and dishing out his own brand of justice. Yes, it’s a pain that the Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev series is going to spoil the events of Civil War II, but at this point it’s not even that surprising that Marvel would let this be released before the event wrapped up. In fact, it would be more surprising if they actually finished the event first. Despite being a victim of Civil War II’s near constant delays, Infamous Iron Man serves as a solid, if slow, look into the new Victor Von Doom. Read the rest of this entry

The Man Called Logan

cuaiczwueaaid_w-jpg-largeAt long last, we finally have some information on the final Wolverine movie. It’s been some time since we had any real news about the movie, and with the March release date coming up, many of us were wondering if we’d EVER get a trailer, pictures, or even a synopsis on Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Logan. Well, we’ve finally gotten some info on the movie, and it’s…different. Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Clone Conspiracy and Reborn!


the-clone-conspiracy-1-main-coverThe Clone Conspiracy #1 (Marvel Comics)

Like all of Dan Slott’s major Spider-Man stories, there’s been quite the build up to Clone Conspiracy. After initially being marketed as “Dead No More”, the new Spidey epic is actually about the return of the Jackal, and his use of clones to seemingly bring Spider-Man’s loved ones and enemies back from the dead. Now, before you go running for the hills, remember that Slott has an incredible ability to make really dumb concepts work (remember how we all thought Superior Spider-Man was going to suck?). But even with that in mind, I’m always leery whenever the word “Clones” shows up in association with Spider-Man. Luckily though, Slott and Jim Cheung’s Clone Conspiracy #1 gets things off on the right track. Read the rest of this entry

TV Review: Luke Cage

marvels-luke-cageLuke Cage (Netflix)

Starring: Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Alfe Woodward


After making his debut on Jessica Jones last year, it’s now time for Luke Cage to take the center stage. The latest of the Marvel Netflix Defenders series, Luke Cage is another solid example of Marvel’s partnership with Netflix, but even the bulletproof Hero of Harlem can’t overcome the same problems as the other Marvel series. However, Luke Cage is bolstered by a pretty stellar cast that really make the series worth the watch. Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Moonshine and Jessica Jones!


moonshine-coverMoonshine #1 (Image Comics)

Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso made quite the team when they created 100 Bullets, and now with their new Image series Moonshine they’re hoping to recapture some of that magic again. A Prohibition era werewolf series, Moonshine’s debut issue has what it takes for another cool ongoing series, even if it takes a little too long to get the plot moving. Read the rest of this entry

TV Review: Westworld

1274080_mkt_pa_westworld-s1_po_v1_pTV REVIEW:

Westworld, Season 1, Episode 1

Holy Crap.

That’s all I can really say after watching Westworld, the latest HBO series that’s most likely the heir to Game of Thrones. Based on the 1973 Michael Crichton movie of the same name, Westworld is far more than just “Jurassic Park with robots”. The Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy series is a sharp, beautiful, and shocking look into the nature of man and machine that will blow away any and all expectations. Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Batman Beyond Rebirth and Teen Titans Rebirth!


jul160269Batman Beyond Rebirth #1 (DC Comics)

For long time now the Batman Beyond property has been a tough nut for DC Comics to crack. The now classic TV show has a huge following, but the numerous times that DC has tried to tap into that audience with a Batman Beyond comic have fallen flat. For some reason, Terry McGinnis’ adventures haven’t been as easy to bring to the paneled page as they should be. Until now. Dan Jurgens and Ryan Sook’s Batman Beyond Rebirth special hits all the right beats, and brings us all up to speed on the Dark Knight of tomorrow’s current adventures. Read the rest of this entry

Superman and Son

12512778-10101076300796655-8399499985413246478-n-176189At seven issues in for a majority of their titles, the DC Rebirth event can pretty much be considered a resounding success. There’s tons of fantastic titles to choose for your pull list, from Tom King and David Finch’s Batman to Greg Rucka’s Wonder Woman, but in all honesty, the one that I love the most is Peter J Tomasi and Patrick Gleason’s Superman, and it’s the one DC Rebirth title that shouldn’t work nearly as well as it does.

Comic Reviews: Seven To Eternity and Amazing Spider-Man!


seventoeternity01_cvraSeven To Eternity #1 (Image Comics)

Rick Remender has made quite a name for himself in comics the past few years. After successful runs on Uncanny X-Force and Uncanny Avengers for Marvel, as well as Black Science, Tokyo Ghost, and Deadly Class for Image Comics, he’s now at the level of creator that brings in readers simply from his name appearing on the cover. With his latest release with artist Jerome Opena from Image, Seven To Eternity, that name appeal is only going to get stronger. Read the rest of this entry

Monsters Unleashed?

monstersunleashed-promo-0916So we finally have an idea of just what Marvel’s “Monsters Unleashed” is going to look like when it hits in January of 2017, and…it’s not exactly what I was expecting. Instead of this being a new storyline event featuring the returns of Werewolf By Night, Frankenstein, and other Marvel Monsters that were made famous in the 1970’s. Instead, it will be monsters like Fin Fang Foom, Devil Dinosaur, and even Groot attacking the Marvel Universe all at once, causing the Marvel Heroes to team up and save the planet. Oh, it’s also going to reintroduce Darkhawk into the Marvel Universe for some reason. It sounds…. different. Read the rest of this entry
