Review: New Avengers – The Reunion #1

Or – “When The Heck Did This Happen, Anyway?” The story in which Mockingbird died took place around 1994 or so, if my memories are correct.  I recall reading it while I was in college, in any case, and being annoyed at the art and by how cavalierly the character was offed.  What this means for Secret Invasion and for this mini  is that, somehow, even in Marvel time, the Skrulls plans have had to be in play for YEAAAARS.   So many years, in fact, that the changes in the Marvel U would make the whole thing moot anyway.   One…

Review: Zorro #11

Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when California hadn’t become a state, and Spain ruled via governors and magistrates.  Gold is about to make land owners very rich, and corruption runs rampant.  Who will protect the innocents of the land? Zorro, Zorro, the fox so cunning and free, Zorro, Zorro, who makes the sign of the Z!

Review: Captain America #47

Or – “Things Never To Say To The King Of Atlantis…” “Hey, man, nice ankle wings.” “How do you make your head a perfect triangle like that?” “Why are you dressed like Black Adam?” “Is it true that you’d rather have the proportionate strength of a praying mantis?”

Review: Batman Confidential #27

Now here’s an interesting development For those following along with the many reviews Major Spoilers cranks out, my thoughts on Batman Confidential have been quite low as of late.  However, something strange has happened with this Legends of the Dark Knight reboot that kept the series on my pull list – a good story.

Rapid-Fire Reviews Unlimited: 3 Fast 3 Furious

Or – “Cut Me Some Slack, I Been Working For A Promotion…” My day gig is a study in many things…  Management theories.  Inappropriate dress.  The mating habits of the Bisexuals Of The Plains.  But one thing that it is not, and has never been, is uncomplicated.  Thus, I have come to you, our Faithful Spoilerites, with another batch of mini-reviews, just like a Chili’s mini-burger entree only less likely to make your @$$ look like a truck.  (Also, be aware that I just barely decided not to do this one in limerick form, in honor o’ th’ wearin’ o’ the…

Review: Action Comics #875

Nightwing and Flamebird?  Ah, yes.  Now you die. Rumors of who the new Nightwing and Flamebird are have had Intarweb clacking away feverishly since their initial appearance in the Superman titles.  With Action Comics #875, those identities are revealed, and Zod’s master plot continues to unfold.

Review: Agents of Atlas #2

Or – “The Sensational Character Finds Of 1958…  Give Or Take Half A Century.” Namora of Atlantis.  Serious biceps on a serious superhuman.  The various Agents of Atlas each have their own special niche in life, and hers is “The Muscle.”  More reasonable than her cousin, more powerful than her disintegrated daughter, she still looks pretty awesome in black leather and a crown of shells.  Now, take this into account: She’s over 75 years old. Kinda puts Grandma in a whole new light, doesn’ t it?

Advanced Review: Stingers #1

In which the reviewer realizes he’s old, but doesn’t give a damn. There’s something about the sci-fi horror movies from the 1980s.  Whether it is the promise of violence and boobies, ala the R-Rated Terminator, the portrayal of future society in films like Scanners, Trancers, and Runaway, or the scare ’em tactics of Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween, those movies shaped a lot of the creative minds working in various industries today.  Zenescope Entertainment’s Stingers debuts this week, and takes the best from the above and blends them together in a way that makes me long for the days…

Review: Batman: Battle for the Cowl #1

Woot!  Woot?  (chirp) Rev up your excitement meter, because the biggest Bat event of the season is here, as anyone and everyone is stepping up to fill the boots of the man that saved Gotham City more times than that other guy.  Wow!  This is going to be the bestest thing in the world, right?  Yeah… about that…

Review: Terror Titans #6 (of 6)

Or – “The End Is Always The Beginning…  Especially In Comics.” Ever since her exit from Teen Titans several months ago, Rose Wilson (the Ravager) has fallen into the clutches of the Dark Side Club, and has been forced to fight other teenage heroes in death duels.  Aside from serving as a reminder that some of these characters (Hardrock, Sapphire, Argent, Aquagirl and others) still exist, the series has also shown Rose’s attempts to make a hero of herself, with or without her teen sidekick partners.  In this, the last issue, we see whether or not this particular tree has…

Review: Marvels – Eye Of The Camera #4 (0f 6)

Or – “What Iron Man Really Looks Like…” I have to go on record as being very unhappy with the current state of Iron Man’s armor.  I hate the “evening gloves and hip boots” thing, and I really dislike the almost-simian shape of the butt-ugly new mask.  I guess everybody has their favorite version of various characters, but mine will always be the red-and-silver, big shouldered Centurion armor from 1987 or so.  As drawn by Mark Bright and others, it was always visually impressive, and really made the character stand out among the rest of Marvels’ finest.  Some said it…

Review: Doctor Who – The Whispering Gallery

Or – “OooOOOooo…  OOOOoooo… Wah Wah Waaah Dum De Dum Doo Wah…” The Doctor has traveled the length and breadth of the universe, from the Big Bang to the Vanishing Point, from Old New York to New New York, from London to the Bay.  It’s Doctor, yo Doctor, he’s the Doctor, go Doctor, the Daleks can go and play!
