Review: Blackest Night #6 (of 8)

Or – “By Your Powers Combined…” So, millions of dead folks have arisen, and the heroes of all galaxies have been driven to the edge of destruction trying to fight off their own dead…   The bearers of light have a big task ahead of them, especially given their own internal antipathy, and Nekron’s masterstroke at the climax of last issue.  Who’s walking away alive?  I can’t say as I’m willing to bet on anybody (but then, half the characters are dead already, so I’ve got better odds than many of my predictions.)

Review: Oceanverse

On September 1st, 2008, Michael Schwarts introduced the world to his webcomic Oceanverse. I stumbled across it on December 28th of 2009 while searching for a sonic screwdriver, but I quickly forgot about my initial search and was drawn into the underwater world that is Oceanverse. Come with me and take the plunge.

Review: Escape from Wonderland #3

The Mad Hatter isn’t pleased. The promises of ruling the outside world were shattered once his sister Calie gave birth to baby Violet. She is the key to entering our world and once the Jabberwocky gains passage, he will destroy it. That doesn’t leave much left for Johnny and needless to say, he is bitter.

Movie Review: Avatar

I think I may be a “film snob.” Great way to lead off a review, right? Let me back up a moment. Months ago, when the teaser trailer for James Cameron’s newest epic Avatar hit “the Intardwebz,” I wasted no time mocking, ridiculing, and berating the film. I cranked up my petty squabbling after production stills, behind-the-scenes looks, and the full trailer were made available. Like so many other jaded movie-know-it-alls I joined in the choir of fanboys shouting “THEY LOOK LIKE GIANT SMURFS!!!” Then it hit me – I was bashing a film I HADN’T SEEN YET. Now, not…

Dueling Review: Doctor Who #6

The greatest foe of any Robot Overlord is the time traveler known as Doctor Who.  IDW Publishing has seen fit to publish his adventures for some time, and while the humans seem to enjoy his adventures, my fellow robots in arms – namely the Daleks and Cybermen would rather we see the Doctor killed.  And in this latest issue, we may just get to see the execution!

Review: Ex Machina #47

Or – “Something, Something, Something Daaaaarrrrk Siiiiide…” Doesn’t that image look like the Emperor from Star Wars is using the Force to spy on the half-dressed secretary who lives next door?   No?  Just me?  Bygones…

Review: Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows #2

One thing you can’t say about the Locke children, is that they are a nice and quite and stay out of trouble.  The latest installment of Locke & Key arrived on my doorstep, and it’s time for the middle child to rebel and show us what she’s made of.

Review: Captain America – Reborn #5 (of 6)

Or – “The Strange Case Of Mistimed Resurrection…” I am often accused of overthinking things, especially when it comes to comic reviews.  Many times, I can’t process a particular book or story without comparing/relating/contrasting to something else.  For me, the dual returns of Steve Rogers and Barry Allen are nigh-impossible to read without comparing.  Both books feature characters whose deaths were memorable, meaningful, and upsetting to negate; both books have been extended by an issue in mid-run to try and do the story justice; and both characters (in my opinion) left behind proteges whose stories will be weakened by the…

Review: Adventure Comics #5 (508)

Or – “Heeeey, Now Waitaminnit…  Now, Wait Just A Minute.” In my primary line of work, we spend a lot of time chiding and making fun of people for not reading their bill, their contracts, or the inserts that come in their envelope each month.  So, it’s kind of ironic that my biggest problem with this issue was clearly labeled on the cover…

Review: The Waking #1

Zombies. What is it about the undead that intrigues us? One must admit that it is a fascinating concept; the dead walking the earth once more looking to feast upon the living. Loved ones and friends would be nothing more than a hallow shell of who they use to be and would only be interested in savoring the taste of your brains on their rotting tongues. Is it fear that attracts us to Zombie related films, comics and novels? What would you do if a dead relative or a deceased lover rose again and sought to kill you? What emotions…
