Deshi...Deshi...Basha...Basha... Deshi Deshi! Basha Basha! 0

To no one’s surprise The Dark Knight Rises was good. More than that, it was great. It wrapped up the trilogy in probably the best way possible while leaving the door open for future possibilities.There’s probably more if I really thought about it but 23 is no short order. Plus, there’s one thing that’ll probably grind some gears.As always, spoilers aplenty.John BlakeThere are a lot of choices Chris Nolan has made with his Batman films that make them stick out, one of the most interesting is his ...

Spider-Man Begins 0

Spider-Man is reborn for a new generation! Well, actually, it’s probably more like the same generation, only slightly older. But either way, he’s back again, for the first time, in The Amazing Spider-Man. WARNING: There be Spoilers.The Amazing Spider-ManIt is nearly impossible to review this movie without comparing and contrasting it with the other Spider-Man films of the 2000’s. But despite the recentness of those movies and the necessary adherence to the same source material, I’m going to try ...

It's Avenger Time! 0

What began as a surprise in a post credits scene at the end of the first Iron Man movie in 2008, rolled into one of the most ambitious projects in Hollywood history – The Avengers Movie. Now, it’s time for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to finally assemble to stop Loki and an army of alien invaders!The Avengers Movie ReviewLet me preface my review of Marvel’s The Avengers by stating three undeniable facts about myself. First, I am a lifelong Avengers fan. Second, I also enjoy anything that is or relat...

Nightwing dipped in Red 0

It’s okay. It’s not a great book. It’s not a terrible book. It’s…it’s okay. I mean, if you have three bucks burning a hole in your pocket and you love Dick Grayson then pick it up! You’re not going to regret the decision, but you’re definitely not going to look back on this story with some kind of fondness.Dick isn’t Batman anymore. Which may be a good thing or a bad thing. It’s nice to see some kind of progression in this mythology and seeing a nicer Batman fighting alongside a dark, brooding R...

Superman and Batman Vs. the World 0

Superman and Batman have long been the top favorites in the DC Universe – and the only things fans love more than seeing them in their respective adventures is seeing them team up to take on evil. In fact, fans love the Superman/Batman pairing so much that in 2003, DC Comics launched an ongoing Superman/Batman comic book series as a reboot of the historic series World’s Finest Comics, which ran from 1941 to 1986.The first six issues of the new Superman/Batman featured a story called “Public Enem...

I am the Sprit of Vengance! 0

In Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance we catch up to Johnny Blaze (Nic Cage) many years after the events of the first film. “The Rider” has apparently grown into an all-consuming force of nature that Blaze desperately tries to hold in check; until the presence of evil inevitably sets The Rider loose again, to feed on the souls of the guilty.The Rider is presented with a full buffet of evildoers when a group of ruthless mercenaries storm a church in pursuit of a young boy named Danny Ketch (Fergus ...

Welcome.. To Doom! 0

In Justice League: Doom we get a familiar superhero team vs. super villain team story, with a darker twist. When hired by the immortal Vandal Savage, some of the fiercest foes that Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash and Martian Manhunter face, unleash a plan that shakes each of the respective Justice League member to their very cores.Every superhero has a flaw, or a weakness, and when Savage’s newly-formed ‘Legion of Doom’ comes into detailed intel on how the League members are...

This makes me really miss the show and Dwayne 0

Mr. McDuffie you are one my heroes...l like McDaniel's style , but it really serves him well in denoting the power behind the characters he draws. His Static is maybe a little too stocky for a teen, but I can live with that if it helps to elevate Static into more of a DC star by emphasizing his action-oriented power.The emphasis on science may be slowing down the action a mite. Which is difficult for me to say, having been raised on Schwartz, Fox, and Broome “super-science”. Granted, there is a ...

The Dark Knight.. of the New 52 0

So many Batman storys, so many of them are actually good. So now a recap, Tony Daniel is now writing Detective instead of Batman. I always felt a little sorry for Daniel, having to write “around” Grant Morrison’s Bat-stories, and not ever getting the chance to build up a head of steam on the title, knowing Morrison could throw a wrench (spanner?) into the works at any moment. So I felt that Daniel does a good job here, doing what needed to be doneApparently, we’re back to the Year One type conce...

Five DC Years later? 0

From Action comics too his own Title... lets begin.When you see Pérez on anything, you know that he’s going to cram as much detail into his artwork as possible — it’s one of his artistic trademarks. Superman #1 is no different, but what is surprising is that the story is exactly the same way. He’s managed to cram about three issues of current storytelling into this single issue. How does he do it? Lots of itty bitty panels with lots of word balloons in them. More to the point, it’s his belief in...

The Start of Da Boot! 0

well this the start of the big 52 reboot, with who else Superman. In this version Superman is just starting out and he is the Blur more than Superman. Superman now sports a superman tee (that I own), jeans and brown boots, and a short red cap. Obviously, writer Grant Morrison thinks otherwise, and artist Rags Morales finds the character’s true power in this interpretation. I’m extremely curious how we’ll get from this to the costumed hero (in armor) that’s going to appear in Superman #1 later th...

The Evolution of a Franchise 0

Like the birds, the apes can be pretty scary when they get organized. In this prequel to the 1968 Charlton Heston classic,” Planet of the Apes” and its successors. It's a smart and really entertaining movie from British-born director Rupert Wyatt.Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a film in which digital FX technology has now evolved to such an extent that the super-intelligent apes can be shown convincingly on screen for the first time. No more monkey suits( no pun intended), or as semi-transfor...

With Thor being all powerfully awesome and the X-Men made their big come back Green Lantern ,which is why the newest entry in DC Comics’ long lineage of films doesn’t help them out in any way.Throughout the universe exists a galactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. With the use of their power rings, which grants its chosen wearer the ability to create anything their mind imagines, they patrol the 3600 individual sectors of the universe.

A'Merica!! Efff Yeah!! 0

Makes me proud to be an American!“Captain America: The First Avenger” just may be one of the best Marvel movies of all time. I found it as excellent as “The Incredible Hulk”, “Iron Man”, and “Thor”, all on top in my Marvel Studios list. From start to finish, I was hooked to this movie.The opening scene sends us into the Marvel world, with a rescue crew discovering the Captain America Shield buried in ice. We don’t know how it got there, but suffice it to say that, by the end of the movie, there ...

When I saw awhole stack of them at barnes and Noble, I knew that I had to start to reading these books, and they are awesome, with more violent scences that I wolud thought from the comic, then again it is True Blood. I recommend this issue as a starter of something to really hook you to this amazing series!...

Well this is the last issue, so I can't get a good Cole fix intill the game finally come out in June. So enjoy it whi...

Happy Infiltrator 0

Based on the Cartoon Network show of the same name, "Young Justice" the comic series focuses like the episode "Infiltrator"  , Where the League of Shadows hunts down a woman of importance from being  assassinated. The teen team Aqualad,Robin, and Kid Flash stop assassins Black Spider (the bootleg version of Spider-Man) and Hook. This issue gets a lot of laughs out of me, just like the show, but dosen't blow me away like the show, but I'm not a complainer. This series helps me out with not watchi...

So, in the Fairytale volume the Doctor must rescue Amy and get back to their reality. Amy is still the classic Damsel in distress, but she can hold out her own in the regular Who-universe, but here in, comic-dom, Amy needs some help.

Captured Lightning 0

In This issue of InFamous, Cole is managed to be caught by FBI Agent Moya Jones. Cole is left with no choice but to get his freedom from one of his enemies, Sasha, Leader of the Reapers. This story show s alittle dark side of Cole, No Red Lightning though, he does have a choice to stay on his good Karma path. I kinda want to see a dark path to Cole, but Cole is good and no creepy tar-making Supervilianess will change Cole. I still love the series and I hope DC can show more of old Cole before th...

Hail The Mighty Thor! 0

Thor is finally out, a good half a decade for decent depiction of the Thunder God, and it pays off big time! In the Marvel Studios produced film, Which means Marvel has all the rights to their rightful characters(not like certian other films like Fox), this means Ironman and The Incredible Hulk films are tied in together, which is really freakin' awesome. So anyway, In Thor, Thor(Chris Hemsworth), The Norse god of Thunder, is about to inherit the throne of Asgard from his All Father, Odin(Anthon...

Cole's InFamous Adventures Contioues 0

The Hit PS3 game(that I personally love to death), InFamous, tells the story of Cole McGrath, the bike messenger, who gets imbedded with superhuman powers of electric manipulation. The comic tells the story of Cole after the events of the first InFamous game's story, were Cole meets a conduit, David, a powerul creature who is a great contender against Cole's Lightning. The problem dosen't stop there, he comes to face Trish Dailey, his dead girlfriend, who is working with Agent Moya, who messed w...

Once apon a TimeLord 0

The Doctor has a big desicion to make when he must choose. In this Four part story, The Doctor and Amy Pond are in a Medieavl Fantasy, and miss Pond is the damsel in distress. Amy as a Damsel for me is a good fit, a nice spin of a classic damsel role, with the feistinest of Amy Pond. The Doctor, again, can stay on top of a weird problem being in a story book world. The Eisner-Award winning writer, Matt Sturges, spins the Jack and Fables to the fans of Doctor Who to fit his bonkers universe, also...

Classic Doctor fun! 0

The Doctor has been on so many adventures that I can't belive that he still manages to have only so many regenerations before he finally makes the Time Lord race extinct. Well, in this revisting of classic who, The Seventh Doctor(Slyvester McCoy), has traveled to Victorian Era London, where he tries to solve the case of the alien invasion, I watch old episodes on TV on saturnday nights and this is the Seventh Doctor at his wacky best. I can watch the Doctor carry that umbrella and his hat for a ...

The Doctor on trial 0

The Doctor has been through many things in his 907 year old life, but now a murder case is one the problems he can't wiggle his way out of now. Crazy things have happend, Amy is being hunted by the real Jack the Ripper, and Rory is the cheif of police. How this came to them is a mystery, but aliens did this, thats a fact! The Doctor can break out of anything with his wit, but humans of this era are to scared of the unkown,which is the Doctor. This one of my favorite stories of the new Doctor, an...
