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 watched the premiere of the other new Marvel series last week, and wanted to give this one a go, despite not really enjoying Inhumans. 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 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 finally watched Spiderman: Homecoming, but am having a hard time thinking of how to describe it without comparing it to the other Spiderman movies I've seen, I'm not going to bother trying. The movie was good, better than Civil War and Age of Ultron, but maybe not as good as Doctor Strange or Ant … Continue reading Spiderman: Homecoming A reboot with no Uncle Ben
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.
