The ongoing series, written by Tom Taylor puts the Friendly Neighborhood in "Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man." Every issue from this series is very well written, further solidifying my opinion that Tom Taylor is an absolutely fantastic comic book writer. Tom Taylor and the illustrator, Juann Cabal, create very touching and visually pleasing stories. This series is bound to make you feel many emotions, you'll laugh, you'll feel sad, and everything in between.
This week is proof that DC can’t look beyond Batman. Three major titles feature the Caped Crusader, and I review them here—Batman and the Outsiders #1, Detective Comics #1003 and The Batman Who Laughs #5. I also take a look at the conclusion of Image Comics series Vindication, and Captain Marvel #5.
May 1st kicked off the DC's newest event with DCeased #1, which gives us the beginning of what will be a zombie outbreak in the DC Universe! This event is basically DC's version of Marvel: Zombies, and will likely give us zombie versions of our favorite DC superheroes. The first issue is written by Tom Taylor, the writer of the critically acclaimed Injustice (Years 1-3) comic book series. Meanwhile, the artists are Trevor Hairsine, Stefano Gaudiano and James Harren.
We’re in May already. Plenty of comics to get stuck into this week. From DC, I cover Female Furies #4, DCeased #1, DC’sYear of the Villains #1, and Batman #70. And from Marvel, the Uncanny X-Men are back with issue number 17.
Comic books are precious to many fans. The style is so close to some that they want to try their hand at that. However, getting into the market can be intimidating. Luckily, there are a lot of resources available to new creatives on the scene. Here, we are taking a look at some of those tools, as well as a few tips to help you hit the ground running.
Last week of April, and we have three DC titles and two new ones from Marvel. From DC, I dive into The Wild Storm #22, Detective Comics #1002 and Heroes in Crisis #8. From Marvel, I’m checking out War of the Realms: Uncanny X-Men #1 and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge #1.
For those of you who have read or are reading Batman Who Laughs, then you know exactly who the Grim Knight is and how he differs from the Batman we are all familiar with. This post is going to go over this Batman's origin, and what I like about the character.
Frieza was an absurdly strong, spoiled child with control over his father's army.
You can find some great stories just flipping through the back issues at your favorite place to buy comics. Though, people seem to be more interested in the cosmetic side of things. The nicer it looks, the more expensive it's going to be. I play the guilty card, though. If it looks like trash, I'm going to find it harder to read.
Ever since his appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 in August of 1962, Spider-Man has become one of the most iconic characters in the Marvel universe and has gained a lot of fans over the years through comic books, tv shows, movies, video games, etc. During this time, a concept was introduced called the “Spider-Verse,” a multiverse where alternate versions of your favorite web slinger exist. Since Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse came out not too long ago I thought I’d introduce you to some other versions of Spidey. Now I myself haven’t seen Into The Spider-Verse but I will eventually.
Week two of April, and my Comic Book Review Round-Up features Batman #68, the finale of Titans, "The Batman Who Laughs #4" and two Age of X-Man titles—"The Marvelous X-Men #3" and "Apocalypse & the X-Tracts #2."
Comic books feature some of the best stories ever told. They tend to be giant rides featuring thrills, chills, and spills. Though we read them for an uplifting story that makes us smile, they definitely have moments that balance the good with the bad.
