Dread and Alive

Have you guys heard about the new black superhero on the block? No? well its time you did!
My fellow viners and superhero enthusiasts I present to you Drew Mcintosh, Jamaica's first superhero
and a worthy addition to the ranks of the black superhero pantheon (which includes the beautiful Storm).
 Powers similar to our Black Panther though he appears more reminiscent of Wolverine. 
 




He has a page on the vine, found here  Drew McIntosh 
and his enemies here   Shadowcatcher
and here   Gryphon
 
 


I love the art!

Merry Chritmas/Happy Holidays Comicvine

This year was a bit of a roller coaster for me so just bear with em while a blog for a minute. I don't do this allot ....mostly because i think i suck at it but it's Christmas time I don't see anything very christmasy here on the vine...and that's just wrong!!!
 
Comicvine you've grown on me over the course of this year, I've completely abandoned the evil one (wikipedia) to instead share my love and knowledge of comic books with you guys. I even started posting in forums.....which never happens elsewhere....sure sometimes its mindless drivel  but other times answering a few questions is just good fun and gratifying to boot :)  Like most in this recession I'm out ov a job.... wish i had one.... but sometimes when life throws you a curve you just go with it and that's what I'm doing. 
 
Anyway all I just wanted to thank you for your company, your appreciation (through recommending my many lists, I'm particularly proud of 
Gay Sheik!  and  Black Power..and even  Superhero daycare seems to be coming into it's own). Don't get why  Martial arts masters-DC I'm isn't getting any love but you viners are a fickle bunch lol  
 
 
I'm just wanted to on Christmas eve Merry Christmas Comicvine and i hope you all enjoy yourselves to the fullest, oh and particularly i would like to say a special merry Christmas to Jordama, Killer Z, Vuviper and "Aztek the lost" you guys have made sticking around the vine worth it. Now before i go i wouldn't mind sharing a few Christmas pics from my neck of the woods with you guys and i would love for everyone to share a picture comic book related or not with their fellow posters.
 
 
 Thanks again Ya'll and enjoy this festive season!!  
If your not christian happy holidays to you all as well!!

Looking back at the run of Joe Kelly and Steve Seagle on X-men


Welcome one and all to my very first Blog post on comicvine.com!
For years I've sat by and watched the reviews of all the modern comics marvel has released.....House of M, Messiah Complex, Civil war and even Secret Invasion....Now they have moved on to Dark Reign.....

But whatever happened to the comics of yesteryear?
Where is the love for comics that people loved but the internet was not everywhere as it is now? To that end I have decided to write some reviews of comics from back in the 90's; more particularly I'll start with the comics run of Joe Kelly and Steve Seagle in 1997-1998.

Why this run?

Well I hear people talk about Chris Claremont with reverence, Grant Morrisson is controversial and highly innovative and Joss Whedon breathes new life into characters he loves and can create an emotional resonance second to none......but  

what about the runs that have no place on the net?  

what about the niche/cult writing of the 90's?  

I don't think Fans give enough props to the work done by these two and I can tell you now I entered comics big around this time it was my favorite run only surpassed by Morisson and Whedon so maybe it's nostalgia.....maybe I'm just another Fanboy......but let's read and write some reviews let's analyze their run and let's appreciate the characters they cultivated the underrated (some say C-listers) Marrow and Cecelia Reyes and (D-lister) Maggot.....


Once I'm done with this run I'll move on with another or even look back at some......but for now its review time baby!     
 
more detailed reviews can be found on my other blog  worldofblackheroes
