R.I.P.D. TPB – Review!

R.I.P.D. TPB – Review!

Alright everyone, this review is focusing on the newly re-released R.I.P.D.: City of the Damned. This story is a direct prequel to the movie R.I.P.D. that is come out in theaters this summer, July 19, 2013. The idea behind the R.I.P.D. or the “Rest In Peace Department,” is an interesting one. Also it doesn’t seem all that difficult. The job itself is relatively simple, basically the duties anyone in the R.I.P.D. have are to hunt/track down evil souls/demons or what have you that are on Earth in the physical realm, and that have spent either too much time on...

Star Wars – Darth Maul – Death Sentence Review!

Star Wars – Darth Maul – Death Sentence Review!

Alright everyone, I’m going to keep this one nice and short. I’m not what you’d call a “Star-Wars,” fan boy. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy it for what it is, but I have little to no knowledge of the franchise aside from the movies I’ve seen and the video-games I’ve played. I freely admit this is the first Star-Wars comic I have ever read. I’ll admit I didn’t expect much from the Darth Maul themed comic book and it’s story. I mean the guy got cut in half and fell down a reactor core – YET he managed... Read On

Sonic Lives On?

Sonic Lives On?

Sega’s greatest gift: Sonic. He’s been a household name in gaming for decades, but that’s begun to slow down in recent years. A May Nintendo Direct broadcast revealed that Nintendo and Sega are teaming up for yet another entry into the Sonic saga, this one being exclusive to the Wii U and 3DS. This partnership is worldwide and will probably persist until Sonic ceases to fill Nintendo’s pockets. The new game is titled Sonic Lost World.

Criminal Macabre: No Peace for Dead Men is one of the most entertaining comics I have ever read! Period. This new collection from Darkhorse features on the “Detective,” for hire Cal, and his misadventures throughout the world of the paranormal, magical, etc. The characters throughout all of the stories in this collection are amazing! Even if the character is around only for a single panel you can tell each and every character was given their own distinct voice and personality – With one scene you already know which characters you’re rooting for and which ones you want to see...

Korak – Son Of Tarzan Volume 1 Review

Korak – Son Of Tarzan Volume 1 Review

The equally clever and resourceful son of the jungle lord gets his own title, in a spin-off from the writer of Tarzan,  Gaylord DuBois, and Russ Manning. The first of the two volumes are the complete run, Jane’s and Tarzan’s son, Korak alongside his sidekick great-ape best friend/side-kick Pahkut, goes on his own adventures to brave the creatures and tribes of the unforgiving jungle! When I first began reading Korak – Son Of Tarzan Vol. 1 I wasn’t quite sure what to think of it. I was somewhat familiar with Tarzan and some of his stories, but it’s been awhile since I’ve read anything Tarzan... Read On

Are Videogame Prequels Necessary?

Are Videogame Prequels Necessary?

Everyone loves a good franchise. Whether it is a movie series, tv series, book series, or game series, if it’s awesome enough, we the consumer want more. And why not? When a series is created that features not only a great story and great characters, but also a fantastic world, we want to be lost in that world. So it makes sense to make more entries into the franchise in order to give us more of what we love.   Videogames are notorious for having sequels. Not a year goes by when we don’t get a sequel to a... Read On

Comic News! The Dark Knight Returns – Part 1 Review!

Comic News! The Dark Knight Returns – Part 1 Review!

Hello everyone! I thought I’d take the time to review the newly released “The Dark Knight Returns – Part 1.” Batman is among one of my favorite super heroes. Although that doesn’t mean I’m not one of those “Batman v.s. anything,” and Bats always comes out on top, type of guys.  The character of Batman has a long, deep, rich history with many different “versions,” from different time-lines, different Earths, etc.  Christian Bale’s performance as “The Caped Crusader,” has drawn all sorts of attention to the character. Although I can’t help but feel those unfamiliar with some of Batman’s... Read On

Comic News! Avengers V.S. X-Men update!

Hey everyone! It’s time for another update! I’m sure as we all know this whole event has us thinking about every little development that takes place. Unfortunately I don’t think I’m going to be covering all of the tie-ins to this event, because as is classic Marvel style, they need one million books to tell a story! (No offense! Just bogs the readers down sometimes.) It appears everything is coming to a head for the newly empowered Phoenix 5! After coming into their new abilities they actually start HELPING the world. Go figure. They terra-form wastelands and desserts into... Read On
