This is the fourth in the series of one shots detailing the origins of the Dark Multiverse Batmen, while not as strong as The Murder Machine, I did find it to be better than The Red Death. The Cover Jason Fabok and Brad Anderson do the honours again. I like this one as much as … Continue reading Batman: The Drowned

The Cover Jason Fabok and Dean White do the honours here, and it looks downright menacing. The titular Red Death appears front and center, a dark mesh of … Continue reading Batman: The Red Death
The Cover This cover was one of my first exposures to Chris Bachalo's work. It just looks awesome. Chamber looks powerful and dangerous, and this immediately caught my eye.

I still have … Continue reading Generation X #11 – The First Comic I bought with my own Money.

There are several differences between the two shows, with Inhumans taking place in the Marvel cinematic universe, and The Gifted taking place in the X-men universe. Though the show takes … Continue reading The Gifted Series Premiere

I like the tease that the League will be fighting their future children, in fact that tease is exactly why I picked … Continue reading Justice League Kids? A Look at What May Be.
I sat down and watched the two-part series opener, mostly out of curiosity. It had been receiving terrible reviews, but I wanted to check it out anyway.

I've been a little critical of some of the more recent Shannara books, and have found some of Mr Brooks more recent works to be derivative. He really hasn't done anything to really pull … Continue reading The Black Elfstone: The Fall of Shannara book 1
