So I don't actually have a physical copy of this issue. Marvel has been providing additional free comics when you purchase a hard copy. This is the most recent one that I've received. It's a great opportunity to look at something you might not normally pick up. The Cover The cover is imposing. Thanos is … Continue reading Thanos Returns! Thanos #1
Ok, I actually bought this a few months ago and am only getting to reviewing it now. But I had some really good DC titles to look at, and a course I had to complete for my job. Time to get this one off my to do list! The Cover The cover looks pretty good. … Continue reading Champions #4: Conflict!
This is the second prequel to DC's Metal event. It picks up right where the Forge left off, focusing on the same characters with cameos from several other prominent Justice League and Batman characters. The Cover The cover was done, like The Forge, by Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair. It carries a stronger … Continue reading Dark Days: The Casting
This is the first lead-in to the upcoming DC Metal Crossover Event. It appears to be revolving around the Nth Metal(I'm not sure what it is myself, so if this is confusing, you're not alone). It seems pretty dark, and quite Batman-centric. The Cover The cover just looks cool. It reminds me of anniversary issues … Continue reading Dark Days: The Forge Review
This is part four of DC's 'The Button' crossover between Batman and The Flash. Have no idea what happened in the earlier issues? Neither do I! Lets have some objective and slightly confused fun! The Cover The cover of this issue is great. It has a real old-time feel to it, like your pulling it … Continue reading The Flash #22: The Button Part 4
Sorry for the break between blogs. Summer has had a busy start. I'm going to dive back in with a comic I picked up a month or so ago, Iron Man #7. Only Tony Stark is an A.I., and Iron Man is a young woman named Riri Williams. I completely missed when and why this … Continue reading Invincible Iron Man #7
This is the first issue in the aftermath of "The Button" crossover with the Flash. I picked it up primarily because I'd never purchased a Batman comic before, and the tag line of "The Strangest Team-Up in History" caught my eye. How does it stand up? Here we go! The Cover This one is kind … Continue reading Batman: The Brave and the Mold
So I'm going to change-up how I review comics, to add a little more structure and flow, and to keep my ideas a little more organized. I'm going to break them down into cover, story, and art. I hope you all like it! Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #19 My second issue in this series, … Continue reading Moon Girl and Girl Moon
So I took the kids to the local comic shop today to look around. My son runs straight to the vintage arcade games and pretends to play(1943 is still awesome), and my daughter looks at all the comics, mostly for things like Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and Wonder Woman, occasionally she'll ask about Batgirl … Continue reading Today was Wonder Woman Day. Who Knew?
I picked this one up primarily because it looked relatively kid friendly. I just wanted something to share with my kids. In a Groot based issue language isn't going to be an issue, and it likely won't have much in the way of a lot of violence or mature themes. I was pleasantly surprised! This … Continue reading This Blog is Groot: Guardians of the Galaxy 16
