In a second story, the X-Files team of the 1940s—Bing Ellington and Millie Ohio from the Year Zero miniseries—investigate a potential Communist saboteur, but discover an impossible creature—a gremlin!

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies arrives in theaters last week, just in time for schools to be out and people taking time off from their busy schedules. The movie did okay for its opening weekend, and a few of us have seen the movie, but as always, we are interested in your thoughts.

    Thank you Matthew for all the funny and great insight into comics, if you say good for a comic it goes on my “to read list”. Please, you need to read the new Prophet series from image.
    Dueling review has become one of my top five podcasts (you see what i did there?) thank you for doing that every week.

    I have nothing against new less sexual costumes for bat-girl and spider-girl, but you have to point out that the men in comics weir spandex as well.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
