Now an ongoing series! This is it the thrilling conclusion to the first arc! The Sons of Anarchy have no where to run, and the Ghost Brothers have every upper hand. With the very status of the club at stake, and the memory of his dead daughter still achingly fresh, Tig must find a way to protect Kendra and protect the club…but for once, those aims may be at odds.

Rating: ★★★½☆

Created by Don Edwards
Kyle is a normal kid who comes into possession of what he thinks is a magic pen… bringing everything he draws to incredible life and reality. It isn’t until after a bit of doodling that he discovers (not in a nice way) that what he is in possession of is a device sought after by warlords and alien empires all through the universe. It carries the promise of omnipotence and devastation to whoever wields it.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

CRIME DOES PAY! …but the Foes might pay harder. Can Shocker and Boomerang repair their relationship? Did we just use that question to try to sell a book?! Nick Spencer (AVENGERS WORLD) and Steve Lieber (HAWKEYE) bring us the CRIME OF THE CENTURY!

  1. Loved this episode! Your guys’ description of this as a Batman story as told by a kid had me snort-laughing. I hadn’t heard of Batman: Odyssey before, but I found it at my local library and got a copy to read. I am glad I didn’t spend money on this.

  2. Great episode. On the topic of AMC doing a Preacher series, if the character of the Governor in the walking dead is any indication, I think Preacher may be comparable to an ABC Family series.
