Robocop (2014) – Review

Over the last few years, Hollywood has had a love affair with remakes, reboots and sequels. This month brings us another reboot, Robocop. I hesitate to call it a remake because while the plots share many key elements, the overall story [...]

Dan Slott, Ryan Stegman, Marvel NOW!, Superior Spider-Man

The Future of SPIDER-MAN Is Marvel NOW!

First he was Amazing, then Spectacular, then Sensational. Eventually he became Avenging. But now Spider-Man has a new adjective to add to his ever-growing list of descriptors. Marvel NOW! Is shaking up their flagship characters and the wall-crawler is not [...]

The Future of YOUNG AVENGERS Is Marvel NOW!

I’ve missed the Young Avengers. Granted, they seem to pop up all over the Marvel Universe in the most unlikely of places but it’s been quite some time since they’ve had their own series. But at least I can say [...]

Remember that time Wolverine got his adamantium ripped out and went all bestial?

The Future of SAVAGE WOLVERINE Is Marvel NOW!

Last week, Marvel released a few teasers from the upcoming Marvel NOW! relaunch of the Marvel Universe, one of which involved comics’ legend Frank Cho doing something “Savage”. At that time, our own Nick Furious posited that it had something [...]

Marvel Knights

Where’s the Revolution?

​Author’s Note:  The following is my opinion, and not those of Comic Booked or fellow staff writers.  I also reserve the right to be (pleasantly) wrong. Marvel’s NOW! announcements have been coming at a steady trickle for a few weeks [...]

Never Judge a book by its cover, especially not a comic book like Wonder Woman - this is a stunning cover though!

Traditional Values in the Pages of Wonder Woman

Have the values and concepts that have traditionally shaped Wonder Woman survived the transition into DC’s New 52? With the one year anniversary of the reboot upon us, I think we have enough material to start to answer that question. [...]

DC Comics announced last week that James Robinson will be writing a limited series for HE-MAN and the Masters of the Universe, with art by Phillip Tan. This isn’t the first attempt to make He-Man relevant again; over the years [...]

Review: Superman #3

This relaunched version of Superman might be my favorite of the revamped characters in the DCnU.  Superman, in appearance and character, is arguably the most iconic of the superheroes in DC’s line up, and it was a very ambitious move [...]

Review: Animal Man #3

Animal Man is proving to be one of the most interesting titles in the New 52.  Jeff Lemire is writing Animal Man as less of a superhero and more of a shaman who traverses the spirit world and communes with [...]

Review: Action Comics #3

Grant Morrison’s take on Superman as a socially conscious superhero is a refreshing update on the Man of Steel.  It seems like the main thrust of his run on Action Comics is not to pit Superman against increasingly powerful supervillains, [...]

Review: Aquaman #2

If there’s a superhero who gets no respect, it’s Aquaman.  He’s the most ridiculed of all the superheroes in the Justice League.  Even Plastic Man makes talking-to-tuna-jokes behind Aquaman’s back.  Yet even though Aquaman is the butt of endless jokes, [...]
