  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Supergirl #19 Review (the Greatly Anticipated end of Joe Kelly’s Run)

    Joe Kelly (writer) finally ended his amazingly horrible run of Supergirl… and what a way to go out! Thanks for giving me a really terrible issue to trash, Kelly. This thing was so bad I don’t even know where to begin. I guess I’ll start with the cover even though this doesn’t fall under the […]

  • 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 […]

  • Gotham Police Department on The Dark Knight Set

    Remember the Gotham Bank photos from April? The producers of the Dark Knight used an old post office here in Chicago for the set. Well they’re at it again. This time they’ve converted the side of the building in to a Gotham Police Department, complete with cop cars, Gotham City Bombsquad trucks, and even a […]

  • 8 Reasons Why Aunt May Must Die!

    May Reilly Parker is a kindly old woman. She’s Peter Parker’s Aunt. She’s also old and gross. She’s been alive for far too long and it’s about time she was welcomed by Death’s sweet embrace. Here are eight reasons why Aunt May must die: Aunt May is unbelievably old Aunt May’s first appearance was in […]
