Comic Reviews: Venom The First Host and Rick and Morty vs Dungeons and Dragons!

COMIC REVIEWS!

687306._SX360_QL80_TTD_Venom: The First Host #1 (Marvel Comics)

The current Venom run is doing some pretty incredible things with the character, exploring the history of the symbiote and it’s long connection with the universe. Which makes Venom: the First Host, a new miniseries from Mike Costa and Mark Bagley, a weird one. While it’s showing off a new part of the history of Eddie Brock’s “other”, the fact that we’re getting some additional “never before seen” history behind the creature at the same time as the current run on the character makes The First Host seem repetitive, and if I’m being honest, a little boring too.

The Worst of 2017!

marvel-inhumansAh yes, the end of the year. A time to reflect on all the awesome nerd stuff we experienced in 2017. But this isn’t time to celebrate just yet. Oh no. Before we get to the good stuff, we’ve got to tear down the bad one last time. While 2017 had some amazing highs for movies, TV, and comic books, it also had some embarrassing lows, including one that hurts so much I’m just going to get it out of the way first….

Of Ricks and Mortys

1503832401_rick-mortyNow that the dust has settled on Rick and Morty’s third season, it’s easy to say that this season was arguably the strongest season the show’s had. Every episode had some of the craziest science fiction ideas ever put on a TV screen, rivaling Sci-Fi master classes like Doctor Who, Star Trek, and Alien. Hell, many times some of the best and brightest ideas were basically thrown away as background gags or quick, under minute sight gags. But like everything that’s super popular, there’s always going to be some backlash, and in a weird turn of events, that backlash wasn’t because of  the show, but because of the fans of the show.

Summer 2017 Wrap-Up!

Ah yes, another Summer has come and gone. And unlike last year, the summer of 2017 was chock full of cool stuff for us to enjoy. From the big screen to the small, there was tons of great entertainment to keep us indoors and out of the sun. So much so, that it’s almost tough to remember all the cool movies, TV, and all kinds of other stuff. Lucky for you I’ve got the list to end all best of summer lists! Read the rest of this entry

Comic Review: Birthright and Rick and Morty!

COMIC REVIEWS!!

STK671541Birthright #7 (Image Comics)

Image Comics’ Birthright is one of the best books on the stands, period. The Joshua Williamson and Andrei Bressan series absolutely nails that feeling of being a child and pretending to fight off orcs, goblins, and other monsters in the woods. The catch here though is that Mikey, the lead in Birthright, has actually fought goblins and other ghouls. At a young age, he wandered off and was transported to Terrenos, a mythical land filled with danger. Mikey was destined to be their savior, and returns to Earth. While he looks like a gigantic Conan the barbarian to his shocked family, he’s actually only been gone a year in Earth time…and has been possessed by the evil spirit he was destined to destroy.
