Essential Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 1

Required Reading: Essential Amazing Spider-Man Volume 1

Why I Hope Captain Atom Isn’t Cancelled or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Captain Atom

Review: Amazing Spider-Man #672

Okay, it’s official: Spider-Island is one of my favorite Spider-Man stories of all time. Spider-Man is the character that brought me into comics.  The first comics I ever read (maybe the first anything I ever read for fun) were Stan [...]

Flashpoint: Secret Seven #1 Review

First things first – this book is as far away as possible from the misadventures of Enid Blyton’s bothersome tykes. Did Peter Milligan have the association in mind when he pitched his own contribution to the Flashpoint event, given his [...]
