Episode 104: "Eye Spy" 0

Eye Spy begins with a group of men all wearing matching suits and red masks and all carrying steel briefcases boarding a train. A woman observes them and follows. This was a nice set-up. I feel like we, as an audience, are more likely to be suspicious of the men in red masks. They definitely set off my inner “If you see something, say something.” But as it turns out, it was the lone, silent woman who we should have been on the look out for. Well played, SHIELD screenwriters.I do question the san...

Episode 102: "0-8-4" (SPOILERS) 0

The second episode of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD aired last night. During the preview at the end of the first episode, we were teased with the phrase "Oh-eight-four." In last night's episode, we found out what an 0-8-4 is. It's the code for an object of unidentified origin. The last 0-8-4 Coulson dealt with was Thor's hammer in the dessert.

The Outsider revealed! 1

I woke up early like a kid on Christmas morning and rushed to my iPad to buy Justice League #23. After putting out my Outsider/Alfred post, the suspense of waiting to have my suspicions confirmed was killing me.

I think this is best I've ever seen out of this art team. Every panel on every page is expertly rendered. If there's any complaint about the art ...

Avengers Arena #4 Review 0

The GoodI was a big fan of both Runaways and Avengers Academy, so it was nice to have the characters from both those series share the spotlight completely in this issue.When we first see Reptil, Hazmat and X-23, they are searching for Juston and his attacker. Another character is attacked under mysterious circumstances, leading to a rift in the short lived alliance between them and Nico and Chase from Runaways. At this point, it's unclear whether or not the mysterious attacks are being done by o...

Faithful Adaptation of One of Batman's Best Stories 0

After months of waiting, it's finally here, the conclusion to the animated adaptation of Frank Miller's epic, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Like Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, the folks at DC's animated division have once again created a movie worthy of the source material.When I first heard that DC was dividing The Dark Knight Returns into two movies, the cynic in me saw this as a cash grab. But now that I've seen both movies, I'm glad the decision was made to divide the story into...
