FeaturedMarvelReviewUltimate Spider-Manultimatum

Is this the end of Ultimate Spider-Man? I don’t want to give the answer away too early in the review, because 1) I want you to click on the More link, and 2) it’s pretty tacky to talk about the end before all the other goodness is covered.

When it comes to classic heroes like The Lone Ranger, do readers really need to read the first seventeen issue in order to understand what is going on?  The Lone Ranger has a sidekick named Tonto, rides a horse named Silver, rights wrongs and fights evil doers, and hangs out with a woman and her boy.  Wait, what?

BatmanDCReview

Let’s return to the days of the cold war… Batman Confidential has had a lot of ups and downs for me.  On the one hand the series gives DC a chance to tell origin stories about Batman and his villains, tech, and history, but on the other hand, DC canceled Legends of the Dark Knight (I know, I’m a broken record).  With the holiday weekend upon us, what better way to show our patriotism than having Batman take on the Russians, or more specifically, the KGBeast.

The penultimate storyline of this title continues with New York City Mayor Mitchell Hundred taking time to clear up some personal and political matters before covertly embarking on what could turn out to be a suicide mission against a killer who is using the rats in the sewer system as a weapon against the city populace. To confound the problems His Honor is having; it appears that the unknown assailant is adopting the exact same variation of Hundreds own communication powers that his supposedly deceased nemesis Jack Pherson previously used to control the actions of several animal species. Plus, Mitchell’s

Batteries, we need more batteries Less than a foot tall and capable of taking out a team of commandos.  It’s not the premise behind the latest Baby Geniuses movie, rather it’s what happens when an animatronic teddy bear gets a programming boost thanks to a government AI program.

Three issues in and we’re still no closer to discovering what ultimately made The Plutonian snap and switch sides from good to bad.  We’ve learned about his love life, and her betrayal of his secret identity, which makes me wonder what Mark Waid has in store for readers next.

Press Release G-MAN: CAPE CRISIS, an all-new mini-series by MINI-MARVELS’ cartoonist Chris Giarrusso, brings back everyone’s favorite kid friendly superhero to the Image Universe this August! “Getting to work on G-MAN: CAPE CRISIS has been a long time coming,” Giarrusso said. “I had a great time working on MINI-MARVELS while it lasted, but I’ve also had some G-MAN stories I’ve wanted to tell for a while.  Short MINI-MARVELS back-up strips are always fun, but with G-MAN, I finally have the opportunity to tell brand new full-length feature stories in full comics.  This is the most ambitious project I’ve ever worked

BatmanCatwomanDCReviewRiddler

For most of Battle for the Cowl, readers haven’t been privy to the actual gang warfare between Two-Face, the Penguin, and Black Mask.  In The Underground, The Riddler and Catwoman get a first hand look at what is going on, and for Gotham it isn’t pretty.  It may not even be pretty for those who pick up the issue.

Once again, it all returns to hot girls and boobies.  I couldn’t leave the female heroes out of the week, and wrapping it all up in this installment is a piece by Paul Sizer. Warm up for this week’s Warren Ellis REMAKE/REMODEL project. This week: Domino Lady, a (very lame) wealthy socialite whose lawyer father gets shot and killed, so she dons a backless evening gown and a domino mask, gets her gun and goes out to fight crime. Best part: when she gets money from wealthy bad guys, she takes her cut and gives the rest to charity! Attempting

A touching tale of a stuffed bear and his boy Remember those Teddy Ruxpin bears we all had as kids. Not me of course, I was too old for those kinds of things by the time the line rolled out, and my parents were really cheap bastards to boot, but I found the alluring call of this early animatronic creature fascinating.  I always wondered what would have happened if someone tweaked the programming of that little critter, and thanks to the magics of Andrew Cosby and Johanna Stokes, I get to relive that fantastical part of my childhood that never

Love is a bitch… After the last done in one issue of Army of Darkness, any hope of reading another one immediately following seemed low.  Fortunately, Dynamite Entertainment delivers another self-contained issue that sees our boy Ash getting a little lovin’.

Image ComicsMoviesWanted

By Pooh writer, we’re not saying his work is something for the dung pile, but rather the co-writer of the Disney Pooh’s Heffalump Movie, Evan Spiliotopoulos.  Evan has been tapped by Universal Pictures to write the sequel to the Mark Millar and J.G. Jones Wanted comic series. I’m a little confused on how this will play out.  The ending of the comic book and the movie were both pretty concluding, so whipping out a sequel (especially when the movie ended with all the bad guys biting it) seems to be stretching things a bit.  I just hope this news doesn’t
