Epic Man of Steel Trailer Given MineCraft Makeover

Epic Man of Steel Trailer Given MineCraft Makeover

I think we can all agree that we’re pretty damn excited for Man of Steel. Each trailer released has been more epic than the last and it finally seems that we’ll be given the Superman film that fans deserve. I mean come on, the last awesome Superman film was the original 1978 version staring the late Christopher Reeves. And don’t get me started on Superman Returns (I’m looking at you Bryan Singer). Today has made me proud to be a geek as someone out there has taken it upon themselves to recreate the recent Man of Steel trailer in MineCraft. And they did... Read On

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

Could We Be Getting a Batman/Superman Movie?

Could We Be Getting a Batman/Superman Movie?

Batman and Superman are two of the biggest names in comic book history. Out of all the comic book heroes, these two have had the most media adaptations in the history of comics. I don’t think there is a person alive who doesn’t know who Batman and Superman are. Over time these two have paired up on many occasions to save the world. These teams up are favored among comic book fans because despite the many differences between the two, they remain steadfast friends, though at times they have come to blows. Starting next month you can even see... Read On

Pre-Order Bonuses Announced for Deadpool Videogame

If you’re a fan of Marvel, then no doubt you love the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. What’s not to love about the guy? He’s got charm, charisma, knows how to handle a sword, causes lots of mayhem, and he’s got voices inside his head to boot. So naturally someone was bound to give him his very own game. And no one is more excited by this than Deadpool himself who seems to have highjacked Highmoon Studios and Activision’s e-mail because he just let spill the pre-order bonuses for his upcoming game. Don’t believe me? Read for yourself: Best... Read On

Batman Arkham Origins Trailer Released

Batman Arkham Origins Trailer Released

Last week WB Montreal released a teaser for the Batman Arkham Origins trailer. I don’t know what sense that made, but it got people curious about the actual trailer. Well today they have released the full trailer for your viewing pleasure and it is all kinds of badass. Of course it’s just a cinematic trailer much like what was done with the previous two games and tries to set the tone for yet another long night for Batman.   Hopefully when it comes time to fight Deathstroke in the game it will be this intense. But honestly I just hope... Read On

Deadpool Game Coming This June

Deadpool Game Coming This June

Next month High Moon Studios & Activision are going unleash a contagious personality onto the masses that will take the full video game spotlight. Deadpool aka Wade Wilson….aka “The Merc with a Mouth” is going to warp plenty of minds when Playstation 3, PC and Xbox 360 gamers get dragged into his demented world through the fourth wall. As a character Deadpool has to be the craziest son of a gun ever created in the Marvel Universe and most likely in comic book history altogether. Nothing quite spells about wacky than a mutant that can regenerate health, listens to... Read On

Criminal Macabre: No Peace for Dead Men TPB Review!

Criminal Macabre: No Peace for Dead Men TPB Review!

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...

Chronicles of King Conan – Vol. 5 The Black Dragons and Other Stories Review!

Time to Get Excited For Free Comic Book Day!

Time to Get Excited For Free Comic Book Day!

The first Saturday of every May is an important day for many comic book enthusiasts because in case the headline wasn’t obvious, it is Free Comic Book Day. That’s right, on one day every year, comic publishers and retailers participate in an event where free comics are released for both comic book lovers and people who have yet to even pick up a comic (shame on you). This year it also happens to coincide with International Star Wars Day so it is indeed a big day for geeks everywhere. And if that wasn’t enough Marvel’s Iron Man 3 just... Read On

Buffy Season 9 Vol.3: Guarded Review

Buffy Season 9 Vol.3: Guarded Review

Buffy The Vampire Slayer has come a long way since the show finished its run. Throughout the Season 8 comics we’ve seen the characters grow more than they ever did in the show. Season 9 continues that trend. But now that there’s a world without magic, vampires becoming more feral, and everyone blaming Buffy for it all, what’s a Slayer to do? Vol. 3 Guarded continues Buffy’s tale as she deals with a world without magic and the fact that being a Slayer doesn’t mean a whole lot anymore. Former Slayer, Kennedy offers Buffy a job in personal security,... Read On

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

TV News: Will “Arrow” Fly True?

TV News: Will “Arrow” Fly True?

There’s a good chance that you’ve heard about the CW’s new series, Arrow. Following in what appears to be the footsteps of Smallville, Arrow is about another DC hero, the Green Arrow, also known as Oliver Queen, a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist (hey, wait a minute!) out for justice. You might’ve seen him in the Justice League (or Young Justice as of late) and if you haven’t had the chance, you’re going to want to check out our review of a relatively recent origin story by Andy Diggle, Green Arrow: Year One. It would seem that this is the... Read On

Comic news! Avengers V.S. X-men Update! The Finale!

Comic news! Avengers V.S. X-men Update! The Finale!

Alright everybody, I hope I wasn’t the only person who was awaiting the end of this Hero V.S. Hero arc! I’ll admit, I was a bit disappointed at how it ended, but all in all in was an enjoyable read! Spoilers ahead! You are warned! As the days go by, more of the Avengers are captured and more or less tortured by the Phoenix Five; meanwhile Hope’s training in the ancient, mystical city of K’un-L’un has yet to bear fruit. Some of the X-Men feel understandably uncomfortable about the way the newly empowered Phoenix Five are treating their prisoners and... 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!

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

Comic News! Before Watchmen: Review(s)!

Hello again everybody! I figured I’d hold off on these “Before Watchmen,” reviews until a few were released so that I could review a group of them at once. I figured it would be easier for all of us! Well, I have to say, any reservations I had about the “Before Watchmen,” story arcs have been put to rest. Each issue has revealed itself to be better than the last. We have Nite Owl #1, Silk Spectre #1, Ozymandias #1and The Comedian #1. I’ll start off with The Comedian #1, who we all know is Eddie Blake. Now I’m... Read On
