Unity 1011

Valiant Comics’ Armor Hunterscrossover event is coming to a close very soon. In fact, I think the fourth (and final?) issue comes out this coming “New Comic Book Day”, three days from now. It has been quite a refreshing event for someone who is used to big, sweeping epic events from the Big 2, DC and Marvel. It has been small-scale in terms of how many titles it has affected, but it has been…

Full Blooded by Amanda Carlson (Book Review)

Full Blooded

Full Blooded wasn’t my first urban fantasy read of 2012, not by a long shot, but it was definitely one of the most fun such books I read in that year. So much so that I made it a point to read more urban fantasy novels in 2013 (and 2014!), including some of the more… traditional types of urban fantasies that have become mainstream in the last decade or so. Full Bloodedwas a downright surprise, I…

G.I. Joe - Tales From The COBRA Wars

I started reading G.I.Joe comics back in 2006, when I worked through the entire Marvel run in about a month flat, which is kind of a staggering rate, but then again, I didn’t have anything to do in the summer holidays that year. It wasn’t until six years later, in 2012, that I got back into the world of G.I. Joecomics thanks to IDW Publishing, which had secured the rights to such. I followed them…

Done and done.

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.

Witchblade Volume 2 (Graphic Novel Review)

Witchblade Vol.2

Witchbladeis one of Top Cow’s biggest IPs, by far. Unless I am mistaken, it is one of the publisher’s only two titles to have made it past the landmark 100th issue, and the only one to have made it past the landmark 175th issue as well. And one writer who has shaped this incredible run, more than others I’d reckon, is Ron Marz, who enjoyed a seventy-plus issue tenure before he got back on the…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 007

Following the close of the first big arc on the new season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, writer Christos Gage launched into another fun arc that saw the Scoobies deal with ghosts of the haunted house variety even as they discussed some real-life, immediate problems such as housing. Christos’ consistency on the title was matched by guest artists Karl Moline and Cliff Richards who did a great job of…

The Painted Man by Peter V. Brett (Book Review)

Peter Brett’s Demon Cycle series is another series that I wanted to read when I got back into reading in late 2011, given that his name often came up alongside those of author (very) popular authors on a lit of “best of” lists.
