3 Takeaways From the Behind-the-Scenes ‘Justice League’ Footage

If the reception of the current entries in the DCEU has made you nervous about the upcoming Justice League movie, this sizzle reel has a clear message: Justice League is different. This footage was released on Twitter last week by Zack Snyder in celebration ...

I Hate Fairyland #9 Review

I Hate Fairyland is everything you love about Pop-Culture references, blatantly obvious innuendos, and the most adorably demented art you can find. I am convinced that this needs to be turned into an adult cartoon and become a wild hit. Skottie Young has turned what I thought would be a short run of fun into a sprawling adventure that I keep coming back to for a great laugh.

Superman #6 Review

In what seems to be a theme in Rebirth, this issue was packed with action and emotion. With great fight scenes and moments that remind us who Superman truly is, along with the fact that he is for everyone.

Detective Comics #940 Review

As I said in a previous review for Detective Comics, this is what transcendence feels like in a comic book, this rings true now more than ever. I thought this team was at it's best before and they just keep proving me wrong each issue, getting better and better.

Batman #6 Review

Six issues of Batman and we are running at full speed, Tom King has set up his world and now gets to play in it. In issue six we get the I am Gotham Epilogue, wrapping up this storyline to move into the next. Gotham Girl/Claire has absolutely lost her mind, after having to kill her own brother she has snapped. We see her flying around Gotham saving the city while still talking to her dead brother Hank.

Spawn Kills EVERYONE! #1 Review

There’s nothing in Spawn Kills Everyone that justifies spending money on it, or even reading it. As a giant Spawn fan, I found it insulting and maddening that Todd McFarlane would want to put out something of this quality. It’s a half-baked idea at best.

Paper Girls #9 Review

Vaughn's writing is just a pleasure to read, paired with Chaing's pencils and Wilson's colors and you have one of the best teams in comics today. In particular the full two page spread of the airship is simply gorgeous. It is no mistake that this book took home two Eisners for best new series and Best Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team. So here is to another long month wait for #10, do yourself a favor and go pickup this series.

Superior Review

Superior is a comic series written by Mark Millar (yes the writer of Kick-Ass) and illustrated by Leinil Francis Yu. It is published by Marvel Comics under the company's Icon Imprint. A great story with gritty art that really lends to the story.

Rat Queens Volume 1: Sass and Sorcery Review

Rat Queens is a comic written by Kurtis J. Weibe with art by Roc Upchurchand and published by Image Comics since September 2013. This...

Batman #5 Review

Being King's first arc, this feels like a solid beginning to his run, with his slow burn storytelling we really are just getting into the meat of it. Bringing in the JLA to a Batman comic is always a tricky proposal, yet King manages to do it with grace, using them to show how powerful this foe truly is. Ultimately it was not the JLA or even Batman that defeats Gotham, instead of something more astute.
