I held off on reviewing Titan Comics' Fighting American when it first came out. However, now with the collection coming out and a follow-up mini-series on the way, it seemed like an opportunity to give the entire story another chance. What I didn't realize was that in my reading of this latest interpretation of a Jack Kirby creation, I would see a validation of something that had been brewing in my head for some time.
Dynamite released a collection last week of Project Superpowers: Hero Killers. Hero Killers was a five issue limited series that explored what happened when some frustrated sidekicks snap and become the murderers of the heroes they once served. When the first issue came out last year, I read it and wasn't terribly impressed. However, the premise and the creators are intriguing enough that when the TPB came out, I wanted to give it a second chance.
There are very few books that I can honestly say that I've been looking forward to. Bingo Love is one of those books. From the time I read about the Kickstarter to the preview comic I picked up at HeroesCon, I have been waiting to read this book, and was thrilled when it was announced that Image would be publishing it.. This can be a double-edged sword for a comic, because it has a lot of anticipation to live up to.
As many of you know, Princess Leia came in as the top toy for 2016 as requested by our readers and staff. Maybe it was due to the passing of Carrie Fisher but still, this in one nice figure! Is she perfect? No but she has a lot going for her. I am really digging
The final issue of Secret Wars is out and we can now see what made the All-New Marvel Universe the way that it is. As expected, it all comes down to Reed Richards against Doctor Doom. Does the finale live up to all that it could be, including the hype behind months of spin-off series and late comics? Oh yeah... SPOILERS!
It's nice to contacted by people that genuinely want to know what we think of their work, and I'm happy that Scott Duvall, writer of Narcopolis: Continuum #1 was one of them. He contacted us early on and maintained contact with us in a professional and friendly manner. Also, we don't many chances to review comics published by Heavy Metal, so I was intrigued.
I promised an Archie #5 review, so buckle up. Archie #5 hits your local comic shop today with amazing variant covers and a new artist, Veronica Fish. The previous issues have done very well. Will this one continue a streak of excellent comics?
The first issue of Squadron Supreme was shocking, so how does Squadron Supreme #2 follow it up? It just simply does it, following up on one of the more shocking moments in Marvel Comics to date. Spoiler warnings follow in case you haven't read Squadron Supreme #1 yet. That spoiler is even in the cover, so do not go past the break unless you want it spoiled.
After reading the first issue of Barb Wire, I'll have to admit, I let it fall to the wayside. It always seemed to come into our mailbox at the wrong time. The Adam Hughes covers are eye catching as always, but I've been burned by pretty covers before, so I always tread lightly whenever I see a really great cover. I tend to put a large burden inside on the writer and artists to live up to the appeal of that cover. Let's see if Barb Wire #7 follows through.
The Jem and the Holograms Holiday Special is a pleasant addition to holiday themed comics. Jem and the Holograms has been one of those series that makes comics, especially licensed comics, fun to read and something to tell friends that they have to read. It's also one of those series that you want to make certain your daughters read. So let's dive into the Holiday Special and see what it has in store for us.
We Can Never Go Home has been one of those titles that shows how good comics can be.Now a story that kept us riveted and eagerly awaiting the next issue has come to an end. In our reviews for the title, the average review score has been 93/100. For a series to get this kind
The sequel to the sequel of one of the most lauded mini-series of all timeis out, Dark Knight III The Master Race. Is it worth the six dollar cover price? Is it worthy of the hype that DC has given this comic? Will it make fans forgive Dark Knight 2, which has a legacy as one of the most disappointing sequels in comic book history? We can only answer the first two questions, and with only the first issue out, the third question is up to you guys.
