MARVEL’S NEXT BIG THING [[email protected] / Reviews]: Boardwalk ‘Empyre’.

COMIC REVIEW I don’t know about you, but I’ve been starving for new comics-- especially from Marvel!

AVENGERS / MARAUDERS / VENOM / SPIDER-MAN / BIRDS OF PREY – SIRENS OF JUSTICE [Comics Reviews]: About Dang Time!

The Herculean task of scripting an Avengers run after Jonathan Hickman befell poor Jason Aaron. At first I was happy with the team he brought in. I like Robbie Reyes and Blade and “Thingee”. I even dug the Vampire arc until the end. I scratched my head as to why Superion wasn’t an Avenger but …

A-FORCE / BATTLEWORLD / PLANET HULK / SPIDER-VERSE / ULTIMATE END [Reviews]: Deadpool’s “Secret” Secret Wars…

Beyonders? Battleworlds? Magneto?! For these big, multiple dimension-spanning events like Secret Wars it sometimes seems like not enough heroes really grasp how crazy a situation really is.
