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!
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. 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
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
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
I bought this issue solely for the cover: It looks just like a vintage propaganda poster. The imagery of the Stormtroopers as strong defenders of the Empire, looking implacable is just breathtaking. This cover is just plain beautiful. There is also some really neat imagery: The story itself comes from the perspective of a Stormtrooper. … Continue reading Stormtroopers Looking Cool: Star Wars #21
After managing to avoid spoilers since its release, I finally went and saw Logan. To be perfectly honest, this was nothing like what I'd grown to expect from a comic book movie, and definitely nothing like what I've come to expect from an X-Men movie. It was its own animal. It stood out and above … Continue reading I can’t believe that’s a comic book movie! A look at Logan.
I picked this issue up a few months ago on a trip to the local comic shop with my daughter. I'd picked out an issue of Dr Strange, and seeing as they had a two for one sale going on, was looking for that second book. I was having a hard time deciding, so I … Continue reading A Little Girl, a Tyrannosaur, and Lego: A look at Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #12
A couple months ago I received a preview guide from the local comic shop, and within it's pages discovered that one of my favorite pencillers, Chris Bachalo, was still active. I remember this guy from his run on Generation X in the 90's, and have loved his style from the first time I saw it. … Continue reading Doctor Strange #12 In Review
