    The Weekly Pull List – December 17th, 2014

    Continued… My old pal, Emery! Haggard as ever. His hair was a mess, his clothes all in tatters. “This can’t be coincidence,” I thought all aloud. Emery stared at me furious, beginning to scowl. “How dare you...

    The Weekly Pull List – December 10th, 2014

    Continued from last week… As I made my way down the street, rhyme scheme in mind, I thought to myself: What is the time? Surely it’s early, the sun’s barely risen, but will the shop...

    Iron Fist: The Living Weapon #7

    I’m not really obsessed with this series, I swear. Kung fu and superheroes really hit the mark for me, and Kaare Kyle Andrews’ “one-man-show” (Almost. Don’t forget editors/letterers. Don’t ever.) continues fantastically into it’s second...

    The Weekly Pull List – November 26th, 2014

    Continued from last week: I stormed down the stairs, from my room without care. “There is still time, this day!” the thought racing through my mind. So much to do in such little time, and...

    Jack Katz’s The First Kingdom Volume 6

    They say that the end is a good place to start, but that’s usually about writing. While reading Volume 6 of The First Kingdom I was at times wishing I’d read the first five, although...

July 3, 2013 | 0 Comments

The second issue of X-Men shipped and it’s a doozie chocked full of possession, fights, and X-Men.  So much so that I can’t help but name the review accordingly. (If Marvel can make X puns then so can I.) So what makes this book inspire cheesy titles? It must be the ladies. Slight spoilers under...

This year I was lucky enough to take my first trip to a large convention, but before I went headfirst in to the massive crowds and headliner celebrities, I started my convention going a little closer to home at Grand Valley State University’s JAFAX (Japanese Art, Film, and Animation Expo).
