Infinity Rewatch – Thor: The Dark World

In preparation for Avengers: Infinity War, I’m watching all the Marvel Studios movies leading up to it. Thor: The Dark World (2013) Ah, The Dark World. I think it’s fair to say this is the most maligned of all the MCU moves. Certainly, the RottenTomatoes score seems to reflect that, as much as anyone should […]

Comics I’ve Read – All New, All Different Marvel!

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. I’ve gotten really far behind on my comics reading, and have the stack to prove it, sadly. I’ve been catching up, but not leaving a lot of time for micro-reviews. I thought, with the launch of new (all new) and different (some not so different) […]

Comics I’ve Read – 7/19/15

So, I’m keeping this mostly to new issue #1s again because I’m reading far too many comics in general these days to keep up with this. However, I’ll probably put in a non-#1 issue of particular import now and again. This time it’s four books from four different publishers! Lots of excellent stuff. Providence #1 […]

My Love

One of my favorite recent purchases from the local flea market. I related too much to the sad sap teen girl in the first story. Go out and make friends I yell at her/my past self.

Comics I’ve Read 6/23/15

It’s finally a non-Secret Wars edition! As always, these are non-spoilery. Material #1 – This is definitely a “thinker.” There are times when the comic book threatens to feel more like a term paper (footnotes included) with some scratchily drawn pictures to accompany it. This can be both a good and bad thing. Like Kot’s other […]

Comics I’ve Read – Yet More Secret Wars – 6/17/15

  So many Secret Wars! All the Secret Wars! Secret Wars upon Secret Wars! But, the stack is getting smaller. And in the next post I’ll be giving my spoiler-free thoughts on some non Secret Wars books. I HAVE been reading a few here and there, I am just waiting to put them in their […]

Comics I’ve Read, Yet Another Secret Wars Edition – 6/10/15

  Still working my way through my Secret Wars stack! So many! Ack! As usual, nothing too spoilery here. And you can read more of my little capsule thoughts here. Secret Wars #3 – Man, issue 3 already! The main story continues to be excellent, with more of “our” heroes entering the fray. There are some […]

New Comics I’ve Read – Secret Wars Edition 5/21/15

So, adjusting this, a bit. Rather than just be about new #1s I’ve read (I mean, that well has to run dry eventually) I thought I’d expand to be about newly released comics I’ve read in general. Though, having said that. This Secret Wars-only edition is full of #1s! So, that’s confusing. I’ll do another […]

New Comics I Have Tried, 5/19/15

Here are the new comics I tried out this week. God Hates Astronauts #1 – I have been intrigued by this title for a while, and since its creator, Ryan Browne, was in Artist’s Alley at C2E2, I figured I’d give it a go. I talked with Browne a bit. He was insanely nice, and […]
