Comic Reviews: Fantastic Four and The Resonant!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!

large-7109128Fantastic Four #12 (Marvel Comics) 

Hulk vs. the Thing is one of the great rivalries in the Marvel Universe. Their throw downs are the stuff of legend, second only to when the jade giant fights Wolverine. So there’s plenty of hype around Fantastic Four #12, which features a brand new fight between the ever-lovin’ blue eyed Thing and the incredible (now immortal) Hulk. What sets Dan Slott and Sean Izaakese’s fight differently from the the others? The fact that The Thing is going to turn into Ben Grimm in about 90 minutes when the fight starts.

Marvel Steals The Show

biggest-bombshells-from-the-2019-comic-con-marvel-panel-thor-love-and-thunder-mahershala-ali-blade-natalie-portman-chang-chi-awkYou’d be forgiven for thinking that Marvel would take a victory lap at San Diego Comic Con following the release of Avengers: Endgame. Luckily for us though, Kevin Feige wasn’t quite ready to rest on his laurels, and instead gave us some insight into not only the upcoming Disney+ series from the MCU, but quite a number of the phase four films that the studio will be working on. From Shang Chi facing off with the real Mandarin, to the return of the badass vampire slayer Blade, Feige and Co. have quite the line up coming our way, and it’s looking like their most diverse layout of films yet.

Comic Reviews: Batman: Curse of the White Knight and Sword Master!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!

indexBatman: Curse of the White Knight #1 (DC Comics)

Batman: White Knight was a critical and commercial smash for DC and Sean Gordon Murphy, so it’s no surprise that a sequel has come along to expand this corner of the DC universe that I’ll coin the “Murphy-verse”. Unlike the original series, which put a new dynamic on the Joker/Batman relationship, Curse of the White Knight looks back into the past of the Waynes and their ties to Gotham, creating a much different story than the previous one.

For being around for more than 80 years, Superman has sure been through a lot of different takes and interpretations. Throughout the decades he’s had numerous titles, and even his side characters like Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen have received their own series, both of whom are currently starring in their own miniseries events right now. While Lois Lane has Greg Rucka and Michael Lark, Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen has an even higher pedigree on the title, as none other than Hawkeye‘s Matt Fraction and The Fix‘s Steve Lieber are bringing their own very unique spin on the Man of Steel’s best pal.

TV Review: Stranger Things 3!

toutMINOR SPOILERS

Once again, it’s time to head on down to Hawkins, Indiana for another trip to the Upside Down with our pals from Stranger Things. The third season was shrouded in secrecy, so much so that Netflix reportedly gave out a bulleted list of plot points that reviewers couldn’t talk about,and I really think that decision paid off. There’s plenty of fun surprises in store for the third go around with Will, Mike, Eleven, Dustin, and Lucas, and while the cast keeps growing, show runners The Duffer Brothers amazingly keep the plot moving at a relatively quick pace.

Lots of times comics fall through the cracks. Whether a series is cancelled too early or it’s a one shot that’s been lost in a drawer somewhere, many times whenever there’s a comic coming out that seemingly has no real reason for being released, that’s the case. And it’s probably definitely the case for Marc Guggenheim and Dave Wilkin’s Wolverine vs Blade one shot, a comic that feels like a relic from the mid-00’s brought to today.

Comic Reviews: Aero and No One Left To Fight!

COMIC REVIEWS!!

AeroAero #1 (Marvel Comics)

Like all major events, War of the Realms set up some new characters in the hopes of giving them their own series. Unlike other events, those new characters have more things in common with popular Manga series than other comics on the shelves, and the latest series Aero, from Zhou Liefen and artist Keng, serves as a pretty intriguing start for a brand new hero in the Marvel universe.
