‘Storyteller: Dragons’ #1 is a pleasing done-in-one

A done-in-one tale is increasingly rare. A good one? Even rarer.

‘Suicide Squad’ might not be as dark as you think

Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have spent the past six months or so hyping up Suicide Squad as the darkest, edgiest thing to ever be released, even claiming they made use of an on-set psychiatrist to keep the crew from becoming too traumatized. So it's with a whimper that the company tries to spin today's PG-13 rating announcement.

All-New All-Different Avengers #1 – Not ready to assemble

New Marvel Universe, new Avengers. New creative team, new roster, new everything. That's just the way this works. But now we've reached a critical capacity of Avengers. With FIVE concurrent Avengers & Avengers related teams (All-New All-Different, A-Force, Uncanny, New, Ultimates), I can't help but wonder how many teams is too many.

All-New Wolverine #1 – A clone’s destiny

When Marvel announced they were killing Wolverine last year, I was skeptical. After all, it's not only comics, it's an X-Man. Hell, it's THE X-Man. Even in death, Wolverine's an insanely popular character, so kudos to Marvel for sticking to their guns and letting Logan stay six feet under. But it's not the Marvel U without a Wolverine, and while they're cheating a bit by having a universe displaced Old Man Logan show up in Extraordinary X-Men, it's been decided that the mantle would go down to Wolverine's clone Laura Kinney, formerly known as X-23.

‘Peep Show’ begins it’s final run tomorrow

I came to the party a little late for ‘Peep Show’, the cult favorite British comedy about all-around terrible human beings Mark and Jez. The show’s gimmick (the camera is perpetually shooting from someone’s POV) and dry, cutting humor pulled me in, but it’s also a genuinely well-written show with a lot of endearing moments (though they’re almost immediately undercut …

Last Sons of America #1 – A better life for your children

Boom seems to be the place to go for dark, gripping stories about having a displaced life. The latest one, Last Sons of America, has potential to be the darkest yet. Written by newcomer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and illustrated by Matthew Dow Smith (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches, Doctor Who), Last Sons of America is an America which suffers from …

‘Warcraft’ trailer has one glaring problem

I LOVED the Warcraft games growing up, and while I never really got in to World of Warcraft I’ve always hoped for a Warcraft IV proper. We’re getting a Warcraft movie instead, which seems to focus on the Orcs and their inability to evolve beyond warmongers as the humans fear them. There’s a possibility for a real story here. Look …

An indictment of James Bond

I finally got around to seeing Skyfall today. It only took me three years. Look, I'm notoriously bad about not watching movies when they're new. I've managed to mostly keep up with comic book movies as they come out, but a large part of that is because it's impossible to avoid spoilers for me. I managed to avoid the ending of Skyfall for THREE YEARS, and yes, I was VERY surprised to see Judi Dench die. Dench was the only thing about the reboot I didn't question how it related to the originals; we were told Casino Royale was a hard reboot, and I bought it. Judi Dench playing M wasn't THAT big a deal. I couldn't imagine anyone else in the role.
