  • Proof #2 Review

    This issue was more intriguing than the last. We discover that The Lodge houses more than just an oversized furry man-ape, it’s also home to various species that are on the verge of extinction, or thought to have been extinct. It also houses mythological creatures, that for the sake of the comic are said to […]

  • Action Comics #858 Review

    Well this was an unexpected surprise: a comic book featuring the Legion of Super-Heroes that left me satisfied and wanting more. Action Comics #858, Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes Part One features yet another tale about the Superman worshiping youths of the future, the Legion of Super-Heroes. These kids are all over the DC […]

  • Supergirl #22 Mini Review

    Supergirl #22 has been sitting on my desk for weeks now. Every time I picked it up, I would end up setting it down again without even glancing inside. I was dreading it. This is the second part of a two part series entitled Reunion, and both issues are tie-ins to the worst series in […]

  • Punisher War Journal #12: World War Hulk tie-in

    Months ago I talked about Punisher War Journal and how it’s one of my favorite comics. It’s action packed, well written, and constantly considers the blurry line of justice. World War Hulk has been a pretty decent read thus far, albeit rather slow moving. I’m not much for tie-ins and as soon as I saw […]

  • 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, […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Marvel Zombies 2

    Robert Kirkman, the Zombie King of Comics (George A. Romero is still overall zombie king), has written Marvel Zombies 2, slatted for early October. To say I’m excited about this is an understatement. It seems this sequel will deal with a zombie Civil War. First off, there’s the cover that was floating around for quite […]
