  • Ms. Marvel #5 Review

    Issue #5 of Ms. Marvel may have ‘merely’ given us the superhero training story, but as with everything else in the series it presented the whole thing in a very entertaining manner. Being a hero isn’t easy, but Kamala seems ready to take on any challenge that comes her way. One of the things I […]



  • Naruto x 682 Review: Betcha Never Seen This Before

    This week’s manga chapter of Naruto is one of the best I’ve read in years. Kishimoto really out did himself, and it was nice to see the old Naruto back. So, let’s get to it. Last week’s chapter ended with a cliffhanger about the secret technique Naruto and Sasuke decided to use against Kaguya. I […]

    In an email sent to creators from DC co-publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, a number of changes to its payment system were announced. In addition to creators working on digital-first material finally receiving royalties for the first time, now all published sources (single issues, digital, collected editions, etc.) will be factored into a single royalty […]

  • Amazing X-Men Annual #1 Review

    I love the new run of the Amazing X-Men series. It debuted with Nightcrawler coming back from the dead, and the first annual of the series set things up for one of the key characters. The issue put the spotlight back on Storm, one of the most powerful forces in the Marvel Universe, and it made […]


  • Ms. Marvel #4 Review

    The last time we saw the new Ms. Marvel, she was accidently shot trying to stop an armed robbery. This month’s issue showed her fate, new powers, and introduced the story’s main villain. I was really worried when last month’s comic book issue showed Kamala Khan getting shot in the stomach. I knew that Mystique […]


  • X-Men: Apocalypse…Original cast members are coming back and more!

With the latest offering in theaters, fans are already talking about the next installment in the series, X-Men: Apocalypse. Warning! Post might contain some spoilers regarding X-Men: Days of Future Past. The post-credits scene in DoFP clearly set up things for […]


  • Marvel Schools Fox on How to Market a Superhero Movie

    CAN ANYONE BEAT THE ‘GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY’ MARKETING CAMPAIGN? I think it’s safe to say that the two Guardians of the Galaxy trailers might be the best movie trailers of all time. Is that too much? I don’t think so. I’m seeing a talking raccoon and a talking tree alien kicking ass and being […]
