Avengers #18 Cover

First Look: Avengers #18

Seeing as I do nearly all the press releases it has been nice that Marvel hasn’t sent out a COMIC press release in a good two to three weeks with the exception of Brian Wood’s X-Men #1; it has been only [...]

All-New X-Men #11 Cover

All-New X-Men #11

Variant covers will forever be the biggest gamble anyone can buy.  Some Variant covers wind up being extremely valuable, while others you find in the dollar bin at your local comic shop.  I really struggle with understanding why anyone would [...]

X-Men #1 Cover

First Look:X-Men #1

Males and Females alike have been pining for this for decades, an X-Book featuring the X-Women.  Even though I feel Emma Frost has earned her place among the best X-Ladies, but she doesn’t appear to have made the roster, nor [...]

Cable and The X-Force #8 Cover

First Look: Cable and X-Force #8

It wouldn’t be a Cable X-title without having Domino by his side.  Domino has been such a big success as far as being teamed-up with Cable, maybe it is time we start a Cable and Domino title?  With the Uncanny [...]

Secret Service #6

Secret Service #6

Secret Service is basically a “What If James Bond had to train his nephew?”  Every issue up until now has been stellar.  The plot being the world will be down 5 billion people unless they can figure out who he [...]

Age of Ultron #8 Cover

First Look:Age of Ultron #8

Age of Ultron #8 is a flash into the future from what we know so far.  To recap, we know Wolverine and Sue are on a mission to ensure Ultron is never built.  That means killing the man that created [...]

Uncanny X-Men #4 Cover

Uncanny X-Men #4

Rarely do I feel cheated on comics.  Uncanny X-Men #4 felt like a cheap ploy.  I am a big fan of titles being able to hold their own without having to read other titles.  But Uncanny X-Men and All-New X-Men [...]

Fantastic Four #6 Cover

Fantastic Four #6

It takes time to get used to a writer change-up.   Each writer brings something new every time they switch up writers and titles.  One switch up that got people antsy was taking Jonathan Hickman off Fantastic Four.  What in [...]

Uncanny Avengers #6 Cover

Uncanny Avengers #6

Seeing as I am completely infatuated with Uncanny Avengers thus far, Uncanny Avengers #6 was sure to be something extra special.  The Marvel Press Release displayed Apocalypse towering over a hunched over, very battle-worn God of Thunder.  Given that Remender [...]

Once Upon a Time Graphic Novel Cover

Cover Revealed for “Once Upon a Time” Graphic Novel

It wasn’t all that long ago that Marvel announced it would be making a Graphic Novel to the hit ABC Series Once Upon a Time under the Marvel Logo.  As Marvel prepares to unleash the fairy tale characters from Storybrook [...]

Uncanny Avengers #8 Cover

First Look:Uncanny Avengers #8

After the events of Uncanny Avengers #5 we can pretty much assume whatever evil or horror that is threatening the world is all Thor’s fault.  Odin warned Thor not to fight Apocalypse, but Thor just fought him anyways.  I am [...]

Invincible Universe #1 Cover

Invincible Universe #1

Phil Hester has been challenged with a very tedious and daring obstacle.  Create an ongoing Image Comics Universe book.  It would appear it will be mostly Invincible but room for other characters and titles to pop in and out.  Image [...]

Savage Skullkickers #1 Cover

Savage Skullkickers #1

Savage Skullkickers #1. The Dwarf has returned.  Thank God.  I usually am not a fan of dead characters coming back, even when it does suit stories and pushes character depth.  I just don’t like it.  So why am I so [...]

Avengers #11 Cover

First Look:Avengers #11

Well if this doesn’t sound like a total filler issue…The Avengers go to the casino!   Good thing the artwork looks amazing!  Other than the cover looking like something resembling a past Big Hero 6 Cover, everything about this issue [...]

Amazing Artwork

Planet Comicon 2013

Planet Comicon has been around for years.  It is easily the most unimpressive con I have ever attended.  But this year promises to be different!  This year Planet Comicon is getting a well deserved make over.  Instead of being located [...]
