COMIC REVIEWS!

559d3dc375357Howling Commandos of SHIELD #1 (Marvel Comics)

The Marvel Monsters have always had a special place in my heart, so it’s pretty great to see them get another crack at an ongoing with Howling Commandos of SHIELD. Frank Barbiere and Brent Schoonover’s new series finds Man-Thing, Manphibian, and even Hit-Monkey as officially sanctioned SHIELD special agents for STAKE, their task force designed for supernatural situations. Lead by Dum Dum Dugan’s Life Model Decoy jumping consciousness,the team enters into the action right away. This first issue of Howling is a lot of fun, if a little too goofy at times.

The Scariest Comic You’re Not Reading

Chilling_AdventuresOf_Sabrina_issue_2It’s nearly Halloween, which means it’s time to bust out the best spooky stuff you can watch, hear, and read. And while there’s a lot of cool horror comic books that you can check out this October 31st, there’s one horror comic that’s being overshadowed by all of the Wytches, Providence, and Walking Dead issues that are on the racks. And that book is going to be a surprise. What is it? A book starring the former TGIF star Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.

Seriously. Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Uncanny Inhumans and Back To The Future!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!

Uncanny-Inhumans-1-2Uncanny Inhumans #1 (Marvel)

Yes, the Inhumans are back, and they’re getting a brand new title as part of All New All Different Marvel. Picking up where May’s Uncanny Inhumans #0 left off, the new #1 from Charles Soule and Steve McNiven is a pretty fun ride, but it’s not going to help out new readers who want to know anything about Black Bolt and Co.

“It’s True……All of It”

force-awakens-poster-new-articleCan you feel that? It’s the sound of thousands of nerds shaking in anticipation after watching the latest Star Wars trailer. A day before we got our poster reveal, and now it’s just a matter of 2 months until we see more of Han, Chewie, Leia, and (hopefully) Luke. But let’s inspect that poster a little, shall we?

Comic Reviews: Uncanny Avengers and I Hate Fairyland!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!!

4806935-uncanny_avengers_1_coverUncanny Avengers #1

Of all of the Avengers titles in All New All Different Marvel’s line up, Uncanny Avengers was the one that piqued my interest the most. A diverse team, including Spider-Man? Check. Written by Gerry Duggan and drawn by Ryan Stegman? Another check. Deadpool’s in it too? If it’s anything like his tenure on Rick Remender’s Uncanny X-Force, it should be a blast. There’s a lot of goodwill toward this series in my eyes, but unfortunately all of these different pieces don’t add up to a satisfying debut issue. Read the rest of this entry

New York Comic Con Wrap Up!

new-york-comic-conNew York Comic Con has wrapped up for another year, and unlike San Diego Comic Con there was actually a good amount of comic book related news to come out of the con. From Dark Horse announcing comics based on James Cameron’s Avatar to Mark Hamill returning to the The Flash, there were a lot of really cool announcements for both comics and comic book based media. So without further ado, here’s a rundown of all of the big news to come out of this year’s NYCC! Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Doctor Strange and Batman & Robin: Eternal!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!

doctor-strange (1)Doctor Strange #1 (Marvel Comics)

All New All Different Marvel has begun, and with it comes Doctor Strange, which brings the Sorcerer Supreme back to a monthly series. With the team of Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo (and the fact that there’s a movie coming out in a about a year) there’s a lot riding on this first issue of Doctor Strange. Thankfully, Aaron and Bachalo’s debut issue is a lot of fun., and the perfect book for people who are looking to be introduced to the character. Read the rest of this entry

Civil War: Round Two?

civil-photo-01873Here we go again.

That’s honestly the only thing that I can say after seeing the tease for Civil War 2. Yes, the big storyline that’s being used on the silver screen in Captain America: Civil War is getting a sequel, and no, we know nothing about it, other than it’s going to have the new Iron Man fight Sam Wilson’s Captain America.

Comic Reviews: Superman and Ghost Racers!

COMIC REVIEWS!!

superman 44Superman #44 (DC Comics)

The current “Truth” storyline in Gene Luen Yang and John Romita Jr’s Superman has been pretty slow going, but all that changes this month with Superman #44. Now that Clark’s secret has been let out, the latest installment in the game-changing storyline finds some of Clark’s most dangerous enemies striking out at his closest friends, an act that pushes the Man of Steel to his limits and causes him to lose some friends in the process.
