Posted June 3, 2014 by Gene Selassie

Sinestro #1 Written by Cullen Bunn Art by Dale Eaglesham Colors by Jason Wright Published by DC Comics It is no secret that the Green Lantern books were a bit of a mangled mess in the early part of the New 52. The most recent creative shuffle has seen some new life breathed into those […]

Shutter #1 Written by Joe Keatinge Art by Leila Del Duca Colors by Owen Gieni Published by Image Comics WOW! I know — such a clichéd way to start a comic review, but I cannot think of a more fitting word to describe Shutter issue 1. Creative synergy is bleeding out from this book’s very […]

Dear Batman, I want to thank you. Thank you for all of the different versions of Batman out there, from the comic to the cartoons to the films. Thank you for being the only non-superpowered hero that comic geeks can bring up as an equal to the Supermans and Wolverines of the world. But it’s […]

Dead Body Road #1: A Road Too Well-Travelled

Posted December 18, 2013 by Gene Selassie

REVIEW: Dead Body Road #1 Publisher: Image Comics Story by Justin Jordan Art by Matteo Scalera and Moreno Dinisio I’m a sucker for ’80s action-film-type stories. These stories can work when there’s at least a minutiae of something new added. This story didn’t quite go to a bone-dry well, but the well isn’t offering anything […]

That is the word from Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, and therefore the person most likely to know about […]

If you’re an older Spider-Man reader, then you remember the days when Peter Parker was married to M.J. It was a rarity in comics—a happy, stable relationship.
