CW 4 Show Crossover Reviewxxadverbxxarrow-flash-legends-supergirl-poster.jpg

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 04:53:00 +0000

Last post still applies, but I couldn’t resist typing up a quick review for this crossover.  For really this was extremely disappointing!  Beware spoilers It has moments.I enjoy the “Is it just me or is she hot” between Mick and Sara as well as Ray (Brandon Routh who played Superman once) noting that Supergirl looks … Continue reading (image)

To be honest, I’m not fully sure what I want to do.  My plan starting with the Luke Cage review was to hit up 1 review a month and slowly pick up the pace.  Since then I’ve diverted that as Smallville hit Hulu and I’m currently working on a guide for the entire series – … Continue reading (image)

Luke Cage Spoiler Freexxadverbxxluke

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 07:39:10 +0000

Delving into the newest Marvel show with a lack of spoilers and character knowledge! So first, I do know a little about the character pre-Netflix Marvel shows, but just not much.  A couple Spider-Man video game cameos, and a minor appearance here and there in comics. First about the show in general.  It simply is … Continue reading (image)

MODAAK TRUMP!xxadverbxxspidergwen-annual-1

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 03:18:39 +0000

That’s right!  Trump became a villain(?) and king recently in Marvel’s Spider-Gwen Annual #1! So recent Spider-Gwen Annual is a fun affair.  It gives a fairly nice view at some of Earth-65’s world beyond what we’ve currently seen.  While I’ve absolutely been loving Spider-Gwen, I’m very happy this issue isn’t a focus just on her … Continue reading (image)

Spider-Verse; happy its finally over!xxadverbxxspiderverse

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 06:58:57 +0000

Spoilers! Spider-Verse it was… well fairly bad. I’ve read some other reviews on various single issues that were mostly mixed so at least I’m not a minority here. But overall, I didn’t like it. For one, the reason for Spider-Octavius to be there seemed extremely weak. Which don’t get me wrong, I surprisingly enjoyed the … Continue reading (image)

Avengers Undercoverxxadverbxxavengersundercover

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 01:26:37 +0000

Its not too often we get a look at the other side.  Sure DC recently had “Penguin Pain and Prejudice” which was (to me) one of the few bright spots in their New 52, and I know Magneto, perhaps a bit more of an anti-hero than straight out villain, gets his fair share at staring … Continue reading (image)

X-Men thoughts (rant)xxadverbxxx-logo

Finally catching up on comics.  Still a bit behind, but figured I’d jump in to list off some thoughts on various things happening in the X-Men world. WARNING!  There will be spoilers if you aren’t up to date. WARNING!  This will probably not have much coherency in terms of order. WARNING!  Expect mild language. All … Continue reading (image)

Ongoing books from a villain’s point-of-view are notoriously tricky propositions, but Cullen Bunn is off to a solid – if rougher than I’d like – start in Magneto #1.  Check out the read/RANT review today! Why is it so tough to tell a book from the villain’s point of view?  I’ve written before about how the … Continue reading (image)

Fri, 07 Mar 2014 03:56:31 +0000

She-Hulk #2 continues to put forth a strong argument this character-driven superhero/legal drama is one of the best new books on the shelves as Charles Soule and Javier Pulido follow up an excellent debut with an equally strong second issue. A great second issue is one of the hardest things in all of comicdom to write. … Continue reading (image)

Avengers Arena: Graduation!xxadverbxxAvengers_Arena_Vol_1_18

Thu, 26 Dec 2013 05:53:44 +0000

After about a year, and a very strong nod to the first issue’s cover art, Avenger’s Arena comes to an end. Note: beware of spoilers. This series overall was rather good.  I thought a few times it slowed a little, and it seems almost as if Hopeless made a bit of a nod at that … Continue reading (image)

Some significant details about the end of this issue are going to be SPOILED like old milk below I appreciate how quickly things happen in Kings Watch #3. There’s never really a beat where anyone pauses to gather their thoughts, make a plan, or explain what just went down. Everyone, hero and villain, is perpetually moving … Continue reading (image)

Mighty Avengers proves that it can be fun even when it’s boring. TO BE SPOILED BELOW With their first world-ending threat already behind them, the cast of this series sets to work on making themselves an official Avengers squad. This means things like confirming the lineup, clearing the whole project with the “main” Avengers, and, … Continue reading (image)

A series that had some nice ideas and art ends poorly. To have the details SPOILED for you read on… When I first heard about the concept of Reality Check—a comicbook writer’s newest superhero creation escapes his mind and enters the real world—I had plenty of apprehensions. I worried that the series would be too meta, … Continue reading (image)

Writing a great first issue is hard.  With “#1 With A Bullet”, I wanted to examine some debut issues that worked – or didn’t – in an attempt to figure out just what makes a great first issue… and what common mistakes creators occasionally make.  Today, I look at Mark Waid’s fantastic Daredevil #1 and the art … Continue reading (image)

A strong conclusion to the opening arc. S P O I L E R S This issue had one main goal: developing the antagonist. For the first two issues and most of this one, Brain Boy (Matt Price) has been trying to deal with a foreign dictator/uber-powerful psychic named Emil Ricorta. Here, though, we learn … Continue reading (image)

Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner team up with, uh, basically every major artist still speaking to DC for a blessedly playful introduction to their upcoming Harley Quinn series. Harley Quinn was more damaged than perhaps any other character in the DC Universe (give or take a Jaime Reyes) by the DC Universe ‘soft reboot’ in … Continue reading (image)

Review: Batgirl #25 (Zero Year tie-in)seventhsoldierbatgirl-zero-year-review

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 03:37:30 +0000

Marguerite Bennett lands on a brilliant concept for a “Zero Year” tie-in, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Batman #21, the opening issue of Scott Snyder’s third (!) Batfamily crossover event in as many years.  Not because, however, there wasn’t promise – indeed, the best thing in … Continue reading (image)

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 17:49:49 +0000

SPOILERS for like all the stories in this issue Batman Black and White has been a welcome addition to DC’s lineup, especially because I’m not currently jiving with any of their in-continuity Bat-books. I don’t know if this was the best issue yet, but it was definitely the most peculiar. Let’s dive in. “Rule Number … Continue reading (image)
