Not so long ago, I Retro Reviewed the first adventure of telepath Matt Price, from the far-flung Silver Age of comics. Now, we stop, collaborate and listen, ’cause Matt’s back in a brand-new edition (but hopefully one that will outlast the legacy of Vanilla Ice.) Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
For all the abuse I heap on “90s comics”, there are still quite a few books of that particular vintage that hold up to regular reading, even standing in quality alongside the classic comics of yore…
And if you’re looking for that, this ain’t your lucky day, Faithful Spoilerite. Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!

Jason is back, and he’s got a rundown of all the Marvel NOW! comics released this past week.
This is the first sequel to Machete, which was itself a feature length remake of a Grindhouse trailer. This time Machete has to save the whole world from a mad-man and his bombs, but Machete Kills is SO much more than that, and way way less too…
Forever Evil is underway and with it comes the inevitable tie-ins. We’ve already had Arkham War and now Rogues Rebellion, a six-issue mini starring our favorite Flash villains. Is this series worth your time, and even more importantly, your money? Read on to find out!
Last issue marked a turning point for the Amazing Amazon. Now that her life has changed (possibly forever), what does the world have in store for Wonder Woman? More importantly, what does SHE have up her non-existent sleeves? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
In 2009 the US cargo ship MV Maersk Alabama was boarded and hijacked by Somali pirates, and this is the true story of Captain Phillips, his crew, and their struggle for survival. It is directed by Bourne veteran Paul Greengrass, and stars Hollywood’s favorite Every-Man, Tom Hanks. Forget your fun-loving Caribbean pirates, this is a taut thriller, with two stunning performances at the core.
For many years, comics had to be dark and depressing. A hero also had to have a lot of inner conflict, sometimes even fighting his or her fathers’ cousin twice removed from another dimension. Oh, the conflict!
Thankfully, today’s storytelling is much wider in scope. You can find the darker stories if you want, but you can also read tales that are more straightforward and heroic, that are even suitable for all ages! (Don’t run in horror, kids! That’s a GOOD thing.)
A prime example of this is Captain Ultimate, which you can find at MonkeyBrainComics.com, an excellent comics creation site that I’m a big fan of!
Halo is one of the most popular video games in the industry today. The first-person shooter follows Master Chief, a Spartan who battles against the alien invaders, the Covenant and the Flood. Although it is a booming franchise, the Halo universe is largely unexplored outside of this character. Dark Horse Comics attempts to remedy this problem with their new comic miniseries. A lead-in to the new Halo mobile game, Halo: Spartan Assault, Halo Initiation follows Commander Sarah Palmer as she undergoes a secret United Nations Space Command (UNSC) Spartan program. Without the Master Chief, the Covenant or the Flood supporting the story, Halo Initiation branches away from the video games to open a new world for their fans.
Some say that a true hero doesn’t need powers, a costume or any sort of “magic lasso” to fight against those who would do harm upon the world. Diana Prince, former Amazon princess, is one of those people, but can she overcome the forces of Doctor Cyber single-handedly? Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!
