DC Reboot Week 3: Here Be Dragons

Red Lanterns #1

It’s the third week of the DC Reboot and so far, I’m still on the fence with this whole New 52 thing. Last week, I put the second wave of DC’s new #1 issues in 3 categories: YES, MEH and BOO. I had 5 titles in the YES group, 5 titles in the MEH group and 3 titles in the …


Full X-Men: Regenesis Teasers Revealed

X-Men: Regenesis - X-Factor #230 Revealed

I used the full extent of my X-Men knowledge and deductive prowess to identify the shadows in the X-Men: Regenesis teasers. Now that all the shadows have been eliminated, let’s break down who’s on whose side of the fence after X-Men: Schism. Let’s also see which of my educated guesses were right and which of them were absolutely wrong. Let’s …


DC Reboot Week 2: Superman Was Kind Of A Douchebag

Action Comis #1

I’ve already told you about my slight disappointment with last week’s Justice League #1. Now I’m here to tell you about my mixed feelings about the second assault of the New 52. Just like in my DC Reboot post (where I judged the event roughly 3 months before it was rolled out), I’ll be categorizing this week’s comics into groups …


Justice League #1 Commentary

Justice League #1

SPOILERS AHOY! The DC Reboot is upon us with the arrival of Justice League #1 by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. It’s been touted as the introduction to the new DC Universe and it’s pretty obvious that this is mainly targeted at people who are unfamiliar with comics. It’s not a coincidence that the first two members of the Justice …


Uncanny X-Men #1 Cover: No More Silhouettes

X-Men: Regenesis - Uncanny X-Men #1 Cover

When I was trying to figure out who the shadows are in the Uncanny X-Men #1 teaser, I said I saw Magneto, Namor and possibly Magik and Colossus. Also, I hoped that the pair of feet behind Emma Frost was Cyclops. Now, thanks to a leak, I know that Magneto, Magik and Colossus are indeed in that image. Most importantly, …


X-Men: Regenesis Guessing Game

X-Men: Regenesis - Uncanny X-Men

While everybody else is freaking out about the thought of the DC universe (as we know it) ending this week, I’m meticulously poring over the X-Men: Regenesis teasers. It looks like we’re getting 8 X-Men team books after Schism with Team Cyclops and Team Wolverine getting 4 books each. You say “WTF, that’s a lot of mutant books!” but I …


Comic Book Wallpapers! Yay!

Magik Wallpaper

When I’m not working or dicking around the Internet or thinking about a rap battle between Skeletor and the Red Skull, do you know what I’m doing? I’m making comic book wallpapers. Whether it’s comic book covers, pages, panels or promo pieces, if I am awesomed by it, I wallpaperize it. I thought I’d share some of the comic book …


X-Men Legacy #251 Commentary

X-Men Legacy #251

Mike Carey’s X-Men Legacy is turning out to be one of my favorite X-Men runs of all time. His take on the mutants has been blowing me away since he made Cyclops give Rogue her own team of X-Men. That was back in X-Men #188 (“Legacy” was added to the title with #208). Now we’re at X-Men Legacy #251 and …


DC Reboot Hasty Judgment Time!

Suicide Squad

Yes, I’m still calling it a reboot even though DC doesn’t want people calling it a reboot. They’re not the boss of me! Most of their established franchises will be starting fresh with all-new directions, stories and #1 issues in September and that’s a reboot in my book. With all the promised 52 new #1’s of the DC reboot finally …


DC Comics Reboot Questions

justice league

Ah, yes. The great DC Comics Reboot of 2011. It’s been the talk of the comics Internet town for the last couple of days and there’s a multiverse of questions waiting to be answered. The entire line of DC comic books is going to be relaunched in September with all-new #1 issues — 52 in total. I doubt all the …
