  • The Immortal Iron Fist #8

    I’ve been rather disconcerted with comic books as of late. I think my tastes are changing yet again. Either that or most books are just pretty boring right now. I haven’t really felt the urge to write. And then I read Iron Fist #8. Where has this book been all my life? A couple of […]

  • Proof #1 Review

    Proof is a comic book about paranormal activity and the government agents who investigate it… sound familiar? Well it turns out that Proof is actually unique in several ways, some of which aren’t so good. Issue #1 (written by Alexander Grecian and Riley Rossmo) contains two stories. The first, Skin and Bones Part 1 of […]

  • Walking Dead #40 Review

    Although I might not write about every single issue of the Walking Dead, I sing Robert Kirkman’s praises on a constant basis. I tell all my comic book buddies to read the Walking Dead (if they don’t already). I tell my wife to read Walking Dead and she has barely even touched a comic book, […]

  • Mice Templar #1 The Prophecy Part 1: The Calling

    There is nothing better than a creator owned comic. The dedication and love that goes in to every aspect of each issue by far surpasses anything you’ll read in a main-stream, corporation owned comic. Mice Templar, written by Bryan J.L. Glass and Michael Avon Oeming, is no exception. Click for a larger view Mice Templar […]

  • Action Comics #854 3-2-1 Action Part 3: ‘Pal’

    3-2-1 Action is a 3 part story spanning Action Comics 852 – 854. Kurt Busiek has maintained a pretty steady flow of good dialogue and interesting plots during his run on Action Comics, and he continues to maintain a good level of quality even during a tie-in with DC’s worst comic, Countdown. I’ve stated a […]

  • The Scritch-Scratch of Busy Little Hands

    I just watched an awesome animated short called “The Scritch-Scratch of Busy Little Hands” on YouTube. As is usual with an animated short, this one doesn’t have much of a story line, but the animation is wonderful. It really reminds me of Charles Addams mixed with David Firth mixed with Edward Gorey. Pretty cool stuff. […]

  • Major Dark Knight Spoiler

    My inside information was confirmed today. The “cop funeral” scene is currently being shot. I was incorrect about the location. There are about 100+ cops on LaSalle, including police on horses and several people in swat uniforms. There is also an ambulance. I found out there will be a funeral procession / parade taking place […]

  • Gordon to Become Commissioner in The Dark Knight?

    I just received information about a new scene for The Dark Knight movie (sequel to Batman Begins). The scene is being filmed here in Chicago and involves a “Cop Funeral”. One can only assume we will see the death of the current commissioner, which means Gordon will most likely be rising to that position. Very […]

  • Supergirl #20 No Good Deed…

    No more Joe Kelly obviously doesn’t mean no more bad story lines. Supergirl #20 is just as disjointed as any other issue of Supergirl. This is due to the entire issue being an Amazons Attack tie-in. Quite honestly I’m getting sick of all these random tie-ins. Both Superman and Action Comics have been stuffing Countdown […]

  • Batman #667 The Island of Mister Mayhew

    I am a fan of Grant Morrison, Especially when it comes to All-Star Superman. However I haven’t been all that impressed with his run on Batman. I’m not saying it’s bad (aside from issue #663 which was absolutely horrible), it just is not what I was expecting… until issue #667. The story starts with a […]
