Pick O’ The Week

The Viltrumite War continues with Invincible #76. What a corker this story line has been but I would expect nothing less from Mr. Kirkman. This issue is basically all out battle complete with ripped out intestines and loads of blood. The story takes several twists and turns and ends on an absolute stunner of a […]

Okay, Axis, Here They Come Again!

I have always been a fan of The Invaders. I loved the series back in the 1970s when I was a kid. WWII has always been a favorite era of mine (the music, clothes, dames and broads) so its no wonder that I enjoyed the exploits of some of my favorite comic book characters set […]

The Return (again) of Superboy

DC has killed off and resurrected Superboy so many times that it has become redonculous. But the new series is worth picking up.  Written by Jeff Lemire and drawn by Pier Gallo, the new Superboy monthly has a different flavor than previous runs. Connor Kent is older and living in Smallville so there is some […]

Never Any Whiskers

There are a fair number of people who bitch that the CW show, Smallville, has gone on too long. I am not one of them. The show is mega and always will be. It could go on another 10 years and I would still love it. Sadly, this year marks the last year for the […]

Pick O’ the Week (12-15-2010)

John Byrne is back on a monthly. Thank God. This week sees the return of The Next Men courtesy of IDW Publishing. I have to say, IDW has really been hitting it and sticking it lately. All their Star Trek books fucking rock the hizzle. Doctor Who is, of course, mega. Hell, they’ve even re-released […]

Uncertainty

Well, now I’m not sure which member of the Fantastic Four they are going to kill off. Originally, I had heard the Thing but now my sources are telling me it’s Sue. Either way, it’s a massively fucking stupid idea. I’ve enjoyed Jonathan Hickman’s work on the book since he took over. He brought it […]

Marvelous

I have really been enjoying the Mick Angelo reprints of the old Marvelman stories from the 1950s that Marvel has been re-issuing. With the sixth and final issue hitting the stands a couple of weeks back, what will the future hold for the character? I guess that all depends on the legal wranglings (see: Todd McFarlane […]

Not Terrible

Well, Ramos’ art on ASM isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. And the story is decent. I may have flown off the handle a bit but I’m still not completely happy. Spider Man is the flagship character of the Marvel Universe. I still think he deserves a better artist. Barry Kitson, Dan Jurgens, […]

Pick O’ The Week (12-8-2010)

KHAN!!!!!!!! Any self respecting member of fandom knows the true meaning behind the above word: the best Star Trek film made…Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (although the recent relaunch of the series is right up there with it thanks to JJ Abrams and Co). Khan was the film that the first movie, with […]

Whew

Alright. The season 1 finale of The Walking Dead was mega. I thought there was going to be some big explanation and there wasn’t. Instead, the CDC gig fit with the overall narrative of the unknown that I have enjoyed about the series. Now, comes the hard part…waiting a year until season 2. WTF was […]
