COMIC REVIEWS!!

portrait_incredibleThe Punisher #20 (Marvel Comics)

Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads bring their stellar run on Frank Castle to a close this week, and man, does The Punisher #20 deliver. Everything about this issue works: from the writing, to the pacing, to the panel layouts. While this isn’t the end of Frank Castle, it’s definitely a great way for Edmondson and Gerads to put a stamp on their run, and cements them as one of the best teams to work on the character.

Let’s Ride Some Sharks, My Sun and Stars

10292538_10101487226014051_416943994327306903_nLate last night, Zack Snyder tweeted out the first image of Jason Momoa as Aquaman.

And he looks incredibly badass.

Now he’s not exactly like the Aquaman we all know and love from the comics. Yeah, he’s got some blonde streaks in his hair, but the Arthur Curry we know doesn’t have hair quite that long (well, at least not since the 90’s). In fact, this Curry has more in common with Momoa’s take on Conan The Barbarian and his more famous role as Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones than the Aquaman that appeared on Superfriends, and that’s a-okay in my book.

Arthur Curry, Warlord Of The Dothraki?

svb7-batman-vs-superman-introducing-aquaman-2After months of speculation and outright denials on his part, Jason Momoa has been almost kinda confirmed as Aquaman for Batman V Superman and Justice League. Yes, this is yet another addition to a movie that is already going to feature Batman, Superman, Lex Luthor, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Alfred, Perry White, Ma Kent, and probably a lot more. Adding Aquaman to the mix makes me even more nervous about the final product of the film, but at least now I don’t have to worry about if Aquaman will be treated as a joke or not.

The DC Cinematic Universe Begins….

DC_has_big_plans_through_2018_or_do_they__article_story_largeLast week word got out regarding Warner Bros.’ plans for their DC properties, and it’s pretty much what you’d expect, except for one dark and brooding exception. But before I get into that, here’s the prospective list leaked by former Deadline founder Nikki Finke (which is subject to change): Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Aquaman and The Rocketeer/Spirit: Pulp Friction!

Comic Reviews!!!

AQM_Cv24_gaap0z782a_Aquaman #24

We’ve reached the penultimate issue of the “Death of A King” storyline, and we’re one issue away from Geoff Johns’ final issue of Aquaman.  However, if you think anything is slowing down, think again, as Aquaman #24 has so many twists and turns within its pages that it’s hard to put down.

Picking up from last issue, Aquaman awakens from his six-month catnap with a sweet beard and a whole lot of questions. Unfortunately, the only person who can answer them is Vulko, the Atlantean who started the Atlantis/Human war back in the “Throne of Atlantis” crossover.  Explaining to Arthur Curry that he has found the truth behind the mysterious Dead King’s origin and resurrection. Leading him to the forgotten throne deep in Antarctica, Vulko tells the former king of Atlantis to sit in the ancient throne and all will be revealed. Read the rest of this entry
