  • Harley Quinn: Valentine’s Day Special Review

    I must confess that I have never read a Harley Quinn comic book. I’m not even all that familiar with her character beyond Batman: The Animated Series. I happened to see the title come across my twitter timeline the day the comic was released and hinted to my brother that he should pick it up. […]


  • Thor # 5 Review: Behold, A New Age of Thunder

    Was it just me or did Thor #5 feel like Marvel’s way of saying a big ‘We-don’t-care’ to all the people who don’t like the new Goddess of Thunder? Other than the fact that no one knows about the new hero’s identity, nothing much happened in the issue and I hope that changes soon. After […]


  • Tart #4 Review: Submerged Part 1

    A couple of months ago, I recommended the Indie Comic, Tart.  At the time of my review for the first volume, which contained issues 1-3, Issue 4 was in the process of being sent out to those who participated in the Kickstarter campaign.  I have a friend who knows my love for comics, and for […]


  • Ms. Marvel #11 Review: Generation Why, Part 4

    This month’s issue of Ms. Marvel brought the four-part arc, “Generation Why” to a close and showed Kamala Khan realizing that she can’t defeat every bad guy alone. Kamala’s leadership is infectious and inspiring so I’m looking forward to seeing how this new superhero affects the Marvel Universe in the future. Writer G. Willow Wilson […]


  • Thor # 4 Review: Thor vs. Thor

    The thing I had been dreading ever since Thor #1 happened this week and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I started reading the series because I thought it was Mama Thor who was kicking Frost Giant butt and it was fun seeing her holding Mjölnir and interacting with it. However, the story […]


  • What’s The Deal With The Marvel Civil War Meme?

    For about a week now, Tumblr (and by association everybody else) has been contemplating various frivolous reasons for Captain America and Iron Man to go to war in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. The premise of the meme is pretty simple: someone, usually Tony, says something unpopular or even downright offensive, Steve Rogers reacts, and thus […]


  • Grayson Annual #1: Helena’s History Revealed

    Grayson Annual #1 is really the first issue of Grayson that I didn’t enjoy. It wasn’t that it was a bad story, it was that it was lacking in Dick Grayson. Which is odd for a book with his name on it. Like any of Dick Grayon’s books past and present, I read for Dick. This […]


  • Storm # 7 Review: Storm Going Rogue!

    Storm #7 picked up where the previous issue left off. It didn’t stop giving Ororo fans some amazing action-sequences and a gripping plot. Greg Pak is doing an awesome job writing Storm and making the Weather Goddess realize that there will always be bad people who don’t like it when someone stands up to them. […]


  • X-Men #23 Review: “The Burning World” Part I

    G. Willow Wilson of Ms. Marvel fame takes charge of the all-female mutant team with X-Men #23 and it was an amazing debut. Wilson immediately sent the team to a very tough mission and managed to raise the stakes quite high in just one issue of the four-part arc “The Burning World”. I’ve been looking […]


  • Grayson #5 Review – We All Die at Dawn

    Issue 5 finds Dick, Helena and Midnighter with a woman about to give birth in a helicopter that is in the process of hurtling to the ground. Talk about excitement! Grayson has been trying to stop Paragon from using body parts from a villain for his own nefarious plans. The baby being born has the […]
