Boom StudiosDisneyFeaturedReview

With all the news that has been going on with Disney buying Marvel Comics, I thought that it would be nice to take a look at some of the Disney books that have been put out recently by Boom! Kids, who currently hold the license for several Disney and Pixar Books.  With Victoria recently reviewing the first issue of Monster’s Inc, and Stephen having reviewed the first issue of The Incredibles: Family Matters, I thought that I would take the time to review Finding Nemo: Reef Rescue #3, which was release September 10th at comic stores everywhere. Did the issue

Image ComicsPress Release

Press Release Since CHEW’s release, John Layman and Rob Guillory’s ongoing crime series with a disgustingly delicious twist has faced a series of distribution-level sellouts despite extremely healthy reprints. Next month, Issues One, Two and Three will each be reprinted in time for Issue Four’s release, with Issue One reprinted for a fourth (and final!) printing, a ‘Last Bite’ edition for people who are still hungry for a copy of one of the most talked about debuts of the summer.

Magneto’s Ultimatum wave swept over New York City destroying much of the city and killing millions of citizens world wide. Fortunately, Peter Parker (a.k.a. Spider-Man) survived.  As Ultimate (Comics) Spider-Man reboots with issue one, six months have passed in the Ultimate (Comics) universe, and things have changed…kinda.

FeaturedReviewZenescope Entertainment

Calie travels through the looking glass one last time on a desperate mission to rescue her daughter. If you don’t know anything about Zenescope’s best selling Wonderland series, I would advise that you go to your local comic store and pick up the Return to Wonderland hardback along with back issues of Beyond Wonderland (the Tales from Wonderland trade paperback is also a great read which contains individual stories on characters such as the Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts). You don’t necessarily have to read the first two chapters to enjoy Escape but it will add to your reading

ExilesMarvel

Jeff Parker cleared up a rumor on his website about the status of Agents of Atlas and the Exiles series from Marvel.  For fans of Agents of Atlas will be happy to hear that the series will continue.  However, things aren’t so good for Exiles. As for EXILES… well, as they say, you can’t save every patient. The best we did was a momentary blip with issue one of the relaunch, and sales went right back to where they were previously. In hindsight, maybe we should have waited a year or two before trying it. It was a blow to

Boom StudiosDisney

Some of you may remember when we hinted that Boom! Studios might land the rest of the Disney lineup when the Gemstone deal ended, and Boom! was having much success with the Cars, Incredibles, and The Muppet Show Comic Book titles.  Over the weekend it was confirmed that Boom! would indeed begin running the Disney titles this September. WALT DISNEY’S COMICS & STORIES #699 (W) Riccardo Secchi (A) Stefano Turconi One of the longest-lived, greatest comics in history comes to BOOM! Studios! A direct market event — the title that was host to Walt Disney’s most cherished characters that helped

BatmanDCReview

The action between the lords of the Gotham underground has heated up to the point where villains are taking down villains, buildings are blowing up left and right, and the… what?  You don’t remember seeing much, if any, of that action in the pages of Batman: Battle for the Cowl?

Press Release

Press Release Since its debut in January, the Spiralmind comic book series has picked up steam and a devoted fan base around the country. Hugely popular entertainment website Ain’t It Cool News gives Spiralmind a big thumbs-up, saying “Not [in] a style you see often in this post-Image era of cross-hatches and sketches, and that’s what made reading this first issue so refreshing. The story aims high with a conflict of biblical proportions, but boiled down to its basics, it’s got an @$$-kicking rabbi, a spandex clad superhero, and werewolves…Issue one also has a full article on Ancient Judaic Exorcism.

American DreamMarvelReview

Or, “No, really, remind me who Steve Rogers is?” Well, hot off the news that American Dream #1 has sold out I get to review the second issue, and number two is keeping me as thrilled as number one did! This is how comics used to be, and I really wish that Marvel would bring back the MC2 Universe in a more regular way. Sure, the Spider-Girl series is good, but there is so much more MC2 love out there to discover!

Atomic RoboRed 5 ComicsReview

I’m a robot, and you’re a brain in a jar… The final issue of the adventures of the Tesla created robot sits before me – a culmination of a story that has been building for over 70 years as Atomic Robo faces his most diabolical foe. As this is the last issue in this series, it begs the question, “Does Atomic Robo rock, or should he be left to rust?”
