Regular Show #1 Review

Regular Show #1 Review

When I was growing up most of the comics based off of shows were pretty reasonable to say the least. Comics based off of Nickelodeon and Disney shows appeared in their respective magazines but those died like most magazines is the early two thousands. While the stories would often be hit or miss they still [...]

Ten Grand #1 Review

Ten Grand #1 Review

I watched Constantine twice. I got over Keanu’s acting about an hour in, but the concept a guy who battles the forces of heaven is pretty interesting.  That’s what I think drew me to the new series by writer J.Michael Straczynski. The former writer of Amazing Spiderman brings us to the world of Ten Grand. [...]

Johnny Red: Angels Over Stalingrad Review

Johnny Red: Angels Over Stalingrad Review

Battle Picture Weekly, or Battle, was a British war comic magazine that ran through the 70s and 80s, and Johnny Red was one of the more notable ongoing stories. Johnny Red was a Royal Air Force pilot who was disgraced after killing an officer and joined the Merchant Marines with a stolen Hurricane to continue [...]

Everybody Loves Tank Girl Review

Everybody Loves Tank Girl Review

I’ve never been a huge fan of Tank Girl. That’s not a knock against the series at all, but I don’t think I quite got it when I first read it in middle school. I just didn’t get it. Nothing about the plot, setting or characters seemed to make any sense and neither did all [...]

Seduction of the Innocent Review

Seduction of the Innocent Review

Historical fiction is usually not my forte. If I’m going to read a newly published book that is set more than 20 years ago, there has to be a very compelling plot reason for it. Though if you’re going historical fiction, I do love the 40′s and 50′s. There’s just something about that era, where [...]

Dead Space: Liberation Review

Dead Space: Liberation Review

Dead Space: Liberation gives the backstory of Dead Space 3’s new playable co-op character John Carver and exactly why he’s tangled up in Isaac Clarke’s web of insanity. While that sounds interesting, after Salvage I can’t say I was too excited for another Dead Space comic. They also managed to get the now only remaining [...]

Dead Space: Salvage Review

Dead Space: Salvage Review

After the first Dead Space comic and in spite of Downfall, I was excited for more tie-in content. There is a decent span of time between the two games, so setting something in that time sounds like a great idea. Even though Ignition wasn’t great, it filled in some good plot details for Dead Space [...]

Dead Space Review

Dead Space Review

Before the Titan Books rerelease, I had never actually read the Dead Space comic. I did watch the motion comic version that released on Xbox Live leading up to the first game, but those were unfortunately censored. Now I finally get to see all the swearing where it was supposed to be in its explicit [...]

Batman #17 Review

Batman #17 Review

Two years ago there was this study done that was reported by Science Daily with the title: “Spoiler Alert: Stories Are Not Spoiled by “Spoilers”. One of the PhD students quoted in the article had this to say: Once you know how it turns out, it’s cognitively easier — you’re more comfortable processing the information [...]

Uncanny Avengers #3 Review

Uncanny Avengers #3 Review

For the last couple months I have disappointed with the way that Uncanny Avengers has been going. Nothing has happened in the last two issues, but this issue changed my disappointment into amazement. It’s Alive !!! We finally get the real idea of the Red Skull’s plan, which involves using the mind of Professor Xavier [...]
