Original Sin – A Momentous Marvel Murder Mystery

Marvel - Original Sin

What do you do if you go to the moon and you see a dead giant toga-wearing bald dude? And what if (heh, a little Uatu the Watcher humor there) this dead dude was the keeper everyone’s deepest, darkest secrets which are now in danger of being exposed? You panic — you panic like hell. That’s the premise of Marvel’s …

X-Feels – Battle of the Atom, Nightcrawler, and the End of X-Factor

X-Factor - Final Issue

Last week, the X-Men celebrated their 50th anniversary. That’s half a century since X-Men #1 hit the stands. That kind of milestone deserves a celebration of epic proportions and with Battle of the Atom, I feel that we’re getting everything we love about the X-Men. But before we go into Battle of the Atom, let me just tell you about …

Get Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin’s The Private Eye for Any Price You Think Is Fair

The Private Eye #1

I first had a dose of the delicious combo of writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Marcos Martin in Doctor Strange: The Oath, a 5-issue mini-series where Dr. Strange fights Dormammu, Baron Mordo, and his sort-of-mother-in-law, Umar. Everytime these two collaborate, I’m always there to eat it all up, which is why it’s like Christmas in my brain right now. …

Advance Review: Ehmm Theory #1 – Midget Clown Zombies!

Mr. Whispers: You OK, dude?

I rarely stray away from superhero comics, especially from Marvel, and when I do, I always come crawling back to my Avengers, my X-Men, and my other beloved people in colorful costumes. But I’m always up for some comic book fun outside Marvel, so when I was given the chance to have an advance look at Ehmm Theory #1 from …

The War Has Begun – Avengers vs. X-Men #0 and #1

We’ve experienced the hype. We’ve suffered through all the debates and discussions about what the event is all about. We’ve read issues #0 and #1 of Avengers vs. X-Men (if you haven’t, be warned — here be SPOILERS). The war has officially begun and here’s what I think about what’s happened so far. The Scarlet Witch Goes Solo She’s back …

Wolverine and the X-Men #1 Review

Wolverine and the X-Men #1 - Wolverine and Kitty Pryde

X-Men: Schism is over and the mutants have chosen sides. Now the X-Men are back in school as X-Men: Regenesis kicks into high gear with Wolverine and the X-Men #1. The most endearing thing about the X-Men is the element of mutant teenagers going to mutant school to learn about stuff but mostly to fight off whoever’s attacking the school …

10 Great Moments from X-Men: Schism

X-Men: Schism - Cyclops vs. Wolverine

X-Men: Schism, the 5-issue mini-series designed to break the X-Men in two, has just wrapped up and what a ride it’s been. It’s one of the best X-Men stories I’ve ever read for a lot of reasons. It’s a story with Sentinels, psychotic kids and a brutal fight between Cyclops and Wolverine. Writer Jason Aaron has crafted a story that …

DC Reboot Week 5: AQUAMAN IN YOUR FACE!

Aquaman #1

The 5th week of the Great DC Reboot of 2011 has come and gone. Now that I’ve read all 52 new #1 issues, I can finally say that overall, I was disappointed. But I was also pleased. There are enough interesting books in this pile of new issues to make me declare that the whole thing was not as horrible …

DC Reboot Week 4: Girl Power

Red Hood and the Outlaws - Starfire

I’m a week late on this post thanks to some snag with my hosting service, an awesome weekend with the girlfriend and a relatively awesome couple of days working. But hey, there’s still time for me to rip into the fourth week of the DC Reboot so let’s get it on. As usual, let’s start with the YES group. I …
