    Justice League United #0-3 Review

    Pop Quiz: since the inception of the (not really) “New 52,” how many Justice League series has DC Comics sent off to the presses? For those snarky assholes who “need” to have this put into...

    Five Ghosts Vol 2: Lost Coastlines

    There is something to be said for reviving a long abandoned art style. It’s preexisting cultural significance makes it comfortingly familiar while its absence from public life gives it the taste of something fresh. That’s...

    Braving a Bruce-Free Batbook

    I think, in some way, everybody remembers the first Batman story they read. Granted, the plot points, Rogue’s Gallery members, or just who happened to be “on deck” in the all-too-rotational position of Robin may...

    It’s All in the Bat Family – Part Two: The Girls

    What Batman Means to Me

    Batman means a lot to me. Those closest to me aren’t surprised, and if you’ve been paying attention, I’m the one writing the monthly Batman reviews. Still, it’s something I feel compelled to talk about....

    The Untold Legend of a Batman Fan

    If you look at any old photograph of me, say from ages 6 to 10, chances are that I’m wearing a Batman t-shirt, or a Batman hat, backpack, button, etc. Those were the “peak Batman...

    It’s All In The Bat Family – Part One: The Boys

    Let’s get something out in the open first: I don’t actually hate Batman. The thing I do hate, though, is that Batman gets all the spotlight and his family of sidekicks and partners get almost nothing....

So, I’m sure some of you know that this week marks the 75th anniversary of Batman. And I’m sure most of you know that a few years back DC decided to revamp and re-start 52 titles in order to bring in more readers. I’m not sure how many of you are aware that most of...

The Wicked + The Divine #1-2

July 18, 2014 | 0 Comments

I enjoyed the first issue of The Wicked + The Divine so much that I bought it twice. True story. Initially I bought it digitally on a whim after hearing a few glowing reviews, but as soon as I saw Jamie McKelvie’s gorgeous artwork I realized this was a book I needed to have physically in...

Lazarus #5-9

July 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

As many people as there are who are into the science fiction comics these days, I’m always surprised that I don’t hear more from people about Lazarus. While I get as excited as the next person when it comes to series like Saga and East of West, Greg Rucka’s take on science fiction always has...

Vreckless Vrestlers #0-1

July 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

Let’s get something out in the open first: As far as independent comics go, I’m pretty under exposed. I enjoy comics, any that I can get, but I’ve been a victim of a lack of diversity. I’ll probably be a little harsh on this book since it’s a one man show, but comparing something, however...

July 9, 2014 | 0 Comments

Hello, dear readers, this week I bring you the sequel to the well-known cult classic, Re-Animator that takes the story of Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) in an even more twisted, wonderful direction.

Dragons: Riders of Berk – Dragon Down

July 2, 2014 | 0 Comments

Dragons, man. Dragons. Like most, I am completely taken with the often devastatingly uplifting stories that have been coming out of the animated movie genre.  With an audience split between a younger audience and that younger audiences parents, it’s become more and more clear that animated movies need to incorporate a mixed sense of humor...

Superman #32 – The Men of Tomorrow

July 1, 2014 | 0 Comments

There is a common misconception that Superman is a hard character to make interesting. Of course, there are plenty of bland Superman stories out there, but that’s more the result of uninspired storytelling than any fault of the character’s. Sometimes it just takes the right creative team to bring out what makes Superman intrinsically appealing, which...
