Captain America #34: Lost and The Red Skrull
I was reading Captain America #34 today (yes I realize I am late to the party) when I noticed this possible typo in the synopsis page. In part it reads as follows: Bucky agrees to don the costume of Captain America and go after the Red Skrull. This sentence obviously should have said, “Red Skull”. […]

This Tuesday, January 29, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada checks back in on the man currently holding the mantle of Captain America…Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert. Colbert can’t seem to get enough of our very own Joe Q. During his previous appearance on the show (July 27, 2006), Quesada shocked Colbert with the news that Captain America […]

Catain America, Civil War and Marvel Comics
A recent comment reminded me of an article I wrote about the death of Captain America. I invited the general public to get over it. It seemed the day Captain America #25 was released the media couldn’t keep from talking about it. Some fans of Captain America went in to a depression, some lashed out […]
Avoid DC Comics Countdown if You Know What’s Good for You!
At some point in time during one of my posts I lamented the fact that I failed to write about each issue of 52. It was a great series and I was sad to see it go. At that time I had grand plans to write about each and every issue of Countdown… then I […]
Punisher War Journal
Punisher War Journal is hands down one of my favorite comic books. Frank Castle (AKA The Punisher) is a sociopath and this comic does an excellent job showcasing his insanity. Of course you might call that insanity a mere skewed sense of justice… but when that skewed sense involves killing bad guys, that crosses the […]
Spider-Man Back in Black
Spider-Man has been going through a lot of crap lately. First, he becomes Tony Stark’s personal whore and switches to a super high-tech, poorly designed (aesthetically speaking) costume. He supports the Registration Act because his daddy figure, Stark, supports it. Then he’s coaxed in to revealing his true identity by Stark on national T.V. Then […]
Avengers: The Initiative #1 and #2
I really didn’t plan on reading any of the initiative titles beyond Initiative #1 (which is an introduction in to several tie-ins)… but the guys at the comic shop misunderstood my request and ended up pulling each and every Initiative comic. I had fully planned on canceling these and complaining, but I got lazy and […]
Captain America Killed Captain America
Who killed Captain America? Personally, I think Captain America from an alternate time did it. I think he shot himself for some reason and then stole the shield in order to take his own place. OK it’s a long shot and I’m most likely totally wrong, but it would be a rather cool copout. What […]
