Batman #39 Review (Comics)

BATMAN FEATURE

A couple months ago, I took a look at Batman #37 as a way to give my thoughts on super-star author Scott Snyder’s final Batman story arc ‘Endgame.’ That review was harsh. I stand by most of those criticisms, though Endgame managed to win me over in the ensuing months. For those unfamiliar with the storyline, it’s intrinsically ...

Darth Vader #2 Review (Comics)

DARTH VADER FEATURE

Darth Vader: One of the most iconic villains in all of fiction, yet bizarrely one of the least-developed villains in retrospect. Disregarding the vast Star Wars expanded universe–which both Marvel and their Disney overlords are doing despite your fanboy wails–Darth Vader in the films has always been strangely ill defined. Beyond the ...

Spider-Gwen #1 Review (Comics)

SPIDER-GWEN FEATURE

You wanted it. You got it. For those of you who missed her first appearance, along with my review of said first appearance, we are here today to discuss Spider-Gwen, the breakout character from Dan Slott’s mega-series Spider-Verse. Written as essentially a one-off “What If” story, the Marvel Multiverse features a world in which the magical radioactive ...

Gotham: The Red Hood Review (TV/Comics)

GOTHAM FEATURE

I think it would be fair to say Gotham lost its way in recent weeks. I trace this back primarily to poor planning as it’s painfully obvious the show was in such a hurry to achieve certain points they never had a true end goal beyond those points. As such, we ...

Gotham: The Blind Fortune Teller Review (TV/Comics)

GOTHAM feature

Well, this was certainly weird. That’s not to say there’s much here that’s a departure from Gotham’s usual format, it still ultimately breaks down into the same fracturing of main blot and assort secondary interests, but it parcels out in a different manor. Usually on Gotham, there’s more of an establishment from the start ...

Constantine: Waiting For The Man Review (TV/Comics)

CONSTANTINE FEATURE

 Well here we are I suppose, the last episode of Constantine. Yes, the show might find new life at Syfy.  NBC hasn’t technically canceled anything yet, but when cast member start flinging around the “save the show” hashtags the writing is pretty much on the wall. The strangest thing is despite all the anger ...

The Flash: The Nuclear Man Review (TV/Comics)

THE FLASH FEATURE

Now that’s more like it. After a really lackluster week of comic book TV, The Flash comes roaring back this week to deliver a superb episode. Quickly: The Flash is Barry Allen, a CSI who got hit by a particle storm that gave him super speed. He fights crime and finds ...

Gotham: The Scarecrow Review (TV/Comics)

GOTHAM FEATURE

Remember how previously on Gotham we talked about how experimentation is a necessity in creative endeavors? And sometimes despite an idea seems good in concept, it can still fail? This episode is nothing like that. It’s just bad. It’s also a pseudo-part two to last week’s episode. If you missed that one, you won’t ...

Constantine: Angels and Ministers of Grace Review (TV/Comics)

CONSTANTINE FEATURE

Constantine: The usually flawed show I haven’t liked most of this first season. This week’s episode is similar to “Quid Pro Quo” in that it relies on adapting an concept from the DC comics. In this case, it pulls from the Heart of Darkness or Black Diamonds. I’ll get more into the Heart of ...

G.I. Joe #5 Review (Comics)

G.I. JOE FEATURE

Yep, G.I. Joe time again. Although, we stray from the action and amazing artwork of Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra. This week it’s The Fall of G.I. Joe, a sleek and stripped-down, political thriller featuring a skeleton cast of the least zany G.I. Joe characters. The story takes place in ...
