The Nerd Vault: X-Men vs. Avengers

There is nothing like perusing the shelves of your favorite comic store searching for the latest issue of your favorite title. Avengers are fighting X-Men. The dead are still walking. Batgirl is a redhead again. Exciting indeed. Might I suggest to you, however, that after you’ve picked out your latest faves, venture to the back […]Read More

The Best Comic Book Titles of 2011 (DC and Marvel)

I have by no means been able to read every comic book title over the last year. But of those I did read, these are my favorites of 2011. Marvel Moon Knight – I’ve always thought that Moon Knight’s costume was cool. But this D-list superhero never had much else to offer than just another […]Read More

Nerdlocker Reviews – Superboy #1

Jason – I can’t decide if this comic series is going to be one of the coolest or one of the most predictably boring. Potential for cool: A hybrid clone being developed as a weapon by some secret organization.  Apparently his first mission is going to be to defeat the Teen Titans. I hope he does, […]Read More

Nerlocker Reviews – Batman: The Dark Knight #1

Jason – Worst Bat-title of them all. Possibly the worst title period. It starts with a terrible cliche-filled narrative about fear. The bad writing is complimented by Jim-Lee-rip-off artwork. The plot includes Bruce schmoozing with politicians and big wigs in which a new love interest is introduced – Jaina Hudson. She dresses like Kim Kardashian and has just as […]Read More

Nerdlocker Reviews – The Flash #1

Jason – Flash. The guy that started this whole reboot. In the past I’ve only bought and read the occasional Flash book even though I’ve always enjoyed his character and thought his power of super speed is one of the most under-appreciated. This series might get me to follow Flash more regularly. I enjoyed Francis Manapul’s and Brian Buccellato’s […]Read More

Jason’s Corner: This Bloody Violence is Overkill

Comic books, especially superhero comics, are sensationalist.  I understand that. Violence has always been a part of superhero comics since their inception. I am not saying that the Comics Code needs to be re-implemented.  I realize that the market of comic books has shifted from children to teens and adults. I realize that there are […]Read More

Jason’s Vault – DC vs. Marvel: Who’s Better at Animation?

On the latest installment of TV and Movie News (posted July 8th), Cubby emphasized that Marvel “has their movie stuff down.”  He is absolutely right.  Since the recent boom in superhero movies (which started with Marvel’s film  X-Men), Marvel has put out many more quality live-action films than DC. Cubby was also right to emphasize […]Read More

Jason’s Corner – Knight of Vengeance Rises

Unlike Legion of Doom last week, the Batman Knight of Vengeance series has been exactly what I expected and hoped for from the Flashpoint alternate reality storyline.  In issue one, we found that Thomas Wayne is a darker, more extreme Batman.  He owns casinos to keep a close eye on Gotham’s underbelly.  Oswald Cobblepot is […]Read More

Jason’s Corner – Flashpoint: Doomed by a Legion of Bad

Thomas Wayne is Batman and Aquaman is at war with Wonder Woman! Flashpoint started out impressive.  Too bad everything since has been “Flushpoint.”  I mentioned last entry that I have fallen for the button-promotion-gimmick for this series. Thus I spent a small fortune on Flashpoint titles.  While not all of them were terrible, not a […]Read More
