The new trailer doesn’t offer much more than a glimpse of the first few chapters of the novel’s story, but I thought it really captured the spirit of the books. The casting all looks great, though I question giving Woody Harrelson that long hair. Hit the jump top stream the newest trailer. — more

Batman – The Dark Knight #1

Batman - the Dark Knight

on October 03, 2011

No Comments

With 52 new comic series from DC, and with so many of them featuring Batman or his cast of characters and hangers-on, a major goal of these new #1′s is to justify their existence. So, after five issues of the original Batman – The Dark Knight series from David Finch we get a new #1 and a new writer on board to help out plotter and penciler Finch. I never saw the point of the previous series, so the question hanging over this issue is once again, can you justify your reason to exist? — more

Stormwatch #1

Stormwatch #1

Stormwatch is back, and with it it ushers in the return of the Wildstorm Universe, this time tied right into DC continuity. I was very excited for this issue, perhaps even more excited than I was for Action Comics with Grant Morrison. I read every issue of the original Stormwatch from Image Comics during my formative teenage years, and I recently delved into back issues to watch its transformation from Stormwatch into The Authority at the hands of Warren Ellis, which I loved even more. So, how does this new incarnation of Stormwatch hold up to what we’ve seen in the past, especially now that they’re in the same playground as Batman and Superman? — more

Detective Comics #1

on September 08, 2011

Tony Daniel is no stranger to the world of Batman. Most notably he had a memorable run penciling “Batman RIP,” written by Grant Morrison, and from there he added writing duties with Battle for the Cowl and then taking over plotting chores on Batman when Morrison left to start Batman & Robin. — more

Captain America #1

Captain America #1

Well… just in time for the movie that comes out next week we get a brand new #1 issue of Captain America. I won’t bore you with a long rant on the whole stupidity or validity of renumbering comic series, but I will say that this new issue is a good jumping-on point for new readers of Captain America, and to those that enjoyed Brubaker’s run with the character up to this point, you won’t be disappointed either. With Bucky’s fate decided in a recent issue of Fear Itself Brubaker jumps back on board with Steve Rogers wielding the shield. — more

Uncanny X-Men #538

Uncanny X-Men #538

on June 16, 2011

No Comments

There has been a lot of news about this title lately, but for the time being Uncanny X-Men is still running strong with issue 538. This month writer Kieron Gillen wraps up his debut storyline as the pieces fall into place with Kitty Pryde and the Breakworld refugees whom we first met in Joss Wheedon’s seminal run on Astonishing X-Men. I think the success of this storyline will utlimately depend on how invested the reader is in the fate of Kitty Pryde, and, to a lesser extent, the characters from Breakworld. And it is on that point that I’m kind of split on this issue. — more

Uncanny X-Men #537

Uncanny X-Men #537

Kieron Gillen has certainly gotten his tenure as writer on Uncanny X-Men started with a bang. Like Grant Morrison’s run on New X-Men, Joss Wheedon’s fantastic Astonishing X-Men has been largely hailed as among the best X-Men comics of the last decade, but at the same time—with a few minor exceptions here and there—those storylines have been treated with kid-gloves by other writers. So I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to see Gillen dive right back into the aftermath of Wheedon’s “Breakworld” storyline as Kruun and his other Breakworld outcasts have taken refuge on the X-Men’s island of Utopia. — more
