Review: Doctor Who: The Forgotten #2 (of 6)

Or – “Season 6B, Anyone?” In honor of this week’s Major Spoilers Poll of the Week, we’re going to be taking a look at the latest issue of what some have called the best written Doctor Who comic ever…  The adventures of the Tenth Doctor are taking a bit of a hiatus on television, but those of us who want to monitor the activities of the last scion of Gallifrey can still get what they want, presuming that they’re willing to hit their local comic shop.

Review: Superman/Supergirl: Maelstrom #1

Continuity be damned If you miss the Good Ol’ Days of DC Comics where the hero would battle the bad guy, then you’re wish is answered in DC’s Superman/Supergirl: Maelstrom #1.  If you don’t miss the Good Ol’ Days of DC Comics, prepare to be angry. Is your blood starting to boil?  Be calm and chant with me now; Continuity doesn’t matter. Continuity doesn’t matter.  Continuity doesn’t matter. Ah…

Review: Ultimatum #1

Everyone else has a crisis, why can’t we? Ah, the title spanning crisis method of story telling.  Marvel perfected the idea of events happening in one series affecting the universe in another.  While the Ultimate Universe has had a few cross overs here and there – most notably in the Ultimate Spider-Man titles, this particular corner of the Marvel U, hasn’t had a major shakeup since its inception.  Until now…

Review: Freedom Formula #1

I’m not a big Mecha fan.  Sure I like giant robots as much of the next guy, but I’m not one to spend hours and hours devouring everything in this sub-genre of pop culture.  Freedom Formula from Radical Comics was a surprise arrival in my comic stash for the week, and was instantly drawn in with everything the first issue of the mini-series had to offer.

Review: Superman & Batman vs. Vampires & Werewolves

vs. The Horror From Beyond, or “oh no he didn’t”… After reviewing the most awful Superman & Batman vs. Vampires & Werewolves #1, I said I would probably not review issue two.  When I wrote that, little did I remember that I had already pre-ordered the second and third issues.  And since I’m pressed for time, I took a gander at the issue and found it not as bad as the last.

Review: Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns

With blood and rage of crimson red… DC’s Sinestro Corps was the dark horse hit that got me, and many other comic readers, back into the Green Lantern titles.  Geoff Johns followed this up with a retelling of Hal Jordan’s origin, that skewed everything those of us old enough to remember Emerald Dawn attempted to do 15 plus years ago.  The main reason for retelling the origin?  To add in the character of Atrocitus and set up his hatred for Sinestro, who left him nailed to a crucifix of sorts in sector 666.  Someone with that much rage and hate…

Review: Captain America #43

Or – “Former Captain America Steve Rogers Is Still Dead…” …and it’s starting to look like that’s permanent.  (Or at least as permanent as anything ever is in comics.)  The first mission of the newest Captain America is over, the threat of the Red Skull has been pushed back, James Barnes has renewed his affections with Natasha Romanova, the Black Widow, and has been introduced to the Marvel Universe proper, thanks to the Secret Invasion crossover.  We find ourselves at a crossroads, faithful Spoilerites, but J.B. is starting to realize that the life of a Captain America doesn’t allow for a…

Dark Horse Comics
Review: Hellboy: In the Chapel of Moloch

Aw, crap… It’s good to have Mike Mignola writing and drawing his most famous creation.  Even though everyone who stepped in during his absence did a fine job, nothing is more steeped in the history of myth and magic than the research done by Mignola.  In the Chapel of Moloch is filled with the historical references we’ve been missing.

Review: Superman #681

Hi!  We’re your new neighbors! I’m sure we’re going to be the best of friends I reviewed the first installment of New Krypton yesterday, just in time to get to the second chapter of the title-spanning series.  New Krypton #1 was really an anthology of plot setups, written by the key writers in the Superman titles.  In Superman #681, James Robinson is alone behind the wheel, and focuses on the next big moment for the New Kryptonians – meeting their neighbors.

Review: Superman: New Krypton

You are a product of your surroundings Forget that Last Son of Krypton stuff.  Following the events of Action Comics #870, a portion of Krypton is back, making for strange days ahead for the Man of Steel.  We’ve seen what happened when Zod, Non, and Ursa discovered the power Earth’s Sun gave them, what’s going to happen when the inhabitants of Kandor discover their own super powers?

Review: Ultimate Spider-Man Annual #3

In which the topic of ‘going all the way’ comes up Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for since the series began!  The burning question on the lips of every fanboy out there, “Does Spider-Man Love Mary Jane?”  And more importantly, do they love each other enough that the issue brings up the topic of doing it for the first time?  And even more importantly, do they do it?  If the cover featuring a shot of Q’Sada Soda is any indication, fun times await inside.

Review: DC Universe Halloween Special

It’s the most wonderful time, of the year… This has got to be one of the best weeks of the year.  The spooky decorations are out, the little tykes are trying on their costumes for a night for mischief, and the dental industry is primed to make a killing over the next couple of months as kid’s teeth start falling out from candy rot.  DC is getting into the act too, with an all new seasonal special that should spook us all.

Review: Invincible #54

It’s your kids, Marty!  Something has to be done about your kids! If you’ve been following my reviews for a while, you know I love stories involving time travel.  There’s something about being in time well past your years and seeing how far we, as a society, have come.  Jumping on a cosmic treadmill, hopping in a DeLorean, tripping around in a time sphere, or using a time jumping scooter would be the ultimate in doing what you want, when you want.  But what of those other time travelers?  Those that don’t jump in time, but live through it, would…

Hero History: Polar Boy

Or – “Number Two Has To Try Harder…” It’s absolutely amazing to me to think that we’ve been doing these Hero Histories now for over a year and a half.  I’ve had relationships that didn’t last that long!  When we started out, the list of Legionnaires seemed endless, stretching out into infinity.  Now, it would seem we’re in the home stretch, having come to the point where there are fewer than half a dozen LSHer’s yet unprofiled.  When I initially started this project, I knew where it had to begin, and I knew where it had to end, with a stretch of…
