Comic Reviews: Event Leviathan and Silver Surfer: Black!

indexEvent Leviathan #1 (DC Comics)

With the Summer officially kicking off, it’s time for the old comic book standby: major line-wide events. While the DC events typically veer into the universe encompassing mega stories, Event Leviathan is a more grounded one, detailing the secret agent side of the DC universe, which isn’t a big surprise when you see the names on the credits for the issue: Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev.

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

COMIC REVIEWS!!

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.

I won’t lie, I wasn’t expecting much from Star Wars: Lando, but after giving everything else Marvel’s done with Star Wars a try, I figured I’d give it a shot. And I’m glad I did, because this opening issue of the five issue miniseries from writer Charles Soule and artist Alex Maleev is one of the most entertaining first issues of the year. The two creators place Lando Calrissian front and center in a story that has more in common with heist flicks like The Italian Job than the original Star Wars trilogy, a twist that makes for one awesome comic book.

So You’ve Just Binge Watched All of Daredevil….Now What?

daredevil-posterMarvel Studios’ Daredevil has finally hit Netflix, and by now, you’ve probably either started the series or already binged through every episode available to you. So what now? With no news on a season two just yet, you’ll have to sit tight until AKA Jessica Jones hits (or a few weeks until Age of Ultron releases).
