Captain America: Winter Soldier’s NEW Extended TV Spot

Marvel’s next highly anticipated film, Captain America: Winter Soldier, just dropped an extended TV trailer. Here are a few things to take away (SPOILERS ahead!):

  • S.H.I.E.L.D. gets taken down
  • Falcon will be awesome in this movie
  • Freedom comes with a price and Cap is willing to pay it

From what we can glean here, Winter Soldier has everything going for it: top of the line special effects, government intrigue and high octane action! We probably knew most of this already, but these new clips and scenes of dialogue certainly help put the pieces together and make this film take shape. read more

Daredevil #36 Review

Waid and Samnee’s run concludes with this dramatic issue! Only to start right back up again with issue #1 next month… Yeah. Only in comics.


This issue picks up where the previous left off: with Matt Murdock revealing his identity to the world. If you had any doubts as to whether or not this really happened, rest assured, this issue puts all doubts to rest.

Waid and Samnee have done such a fine job with Daredevil. There’s really nothing left to say about these two that hasn’t already been said. It has been one of Marvel NOW!’s most critically acclaimed books, to boot. It’s no surprise when you think about it. Waid and Samnee are two men at the height of their abilities. It would certainly be sad to say goodbye to this stellar team, but lucky for us no one is really leaving. Well, save for Daredevil, who is moving to San Francisco. read more

Punisher #2 Review

Frank is still on the trail of some cartel baddies, the Howling Commandos still have their sights on the Punisher and, randomly, Electro makes an appearance.


This issue offers up plenty of Frank killing bad guys. I feel like the body count in this series is already pushing 20 or 30. Maybe a bit excessive. The only thing showing a little restraint here is the art by Mitch Gerads. If there’s anything holding this series together, it’s the art. There’s even a nice little nod in there to David Aja’s Hawkguy, which is appropriate considering Gerads lines mimic that exact same style. Frank even gets a new dog, akin to Hawkeye’s Arrow, named Loot. read more

Nova #13.NOW Review

Nova gets an All-New jumping on point with issue 13.NOW! Beta Ray Bill makes an appearance and Nova joins him in his effort to take down the villain, Captain Skaarn.


This is one of many #1/.NOW issues released by Marvel to give fans a fresh introduction to their characters. Some have been more successful than others. Lucky for us, Nova slows down just enough to allow new fans to jump right in with what’s going on. read more

Gambit Vol. 2: Tombstone Blues Review

With news of Channing Tatum potentially playing Remy Lebeau in a Gambit solo movie, we chose to highlight the character by looking at some recent comic books. Consider this the day of Gambit, Part II!

Nothing has been confirmed about this movie officially, but we decided to take a look at some Gambit comics anyway. Specifically, we chose to look at the most recent run by writer James Asmus and main artist Clay Mann. read more

New Warriors #1 Review

Marvel releases its newest superhero title, New Warriors. A group of young adult and teen heroes that have been around since the 80’s. Meet the new lineup: Nova, Scarlet Spider, Hummingbird, Speedball, Justice, Sun-Girl, Water Snake and Haechi.


How fitting that Scarlet Spider writer, Chris Yost, would take up this new title after the cancellation of the former. At least here he gets to continue developing Kaine, if only to share the spotlight. read more

Get to Know: Ant-Man

You probably aren’t too familiar with the superhero Ant-Man. You might know, however, that Marvel Studios plans to release an Ant-Man film in Jul 2015, soon after Avengers 2. This would mean Ant-Man is the hero to kick off Marvel’s Phase 3. That’s a lot of pressure, considering hardly anyone knows about the character.

I’m sure you could guess why he’s called Ant-Man – obviously has something to do with ants right? Well if that’s your first thought, you wouldn’t be wrong. But there’s more to the character than meets the eye. For instance, were you aware that there has actually been 3 Ant-Men in the past? The film features 2 of them, Hank Pym and Scott Lang, played by Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd respectively. Also, did you know that in the comics Ant-Man creates the villain Ultron, after which Avengers 2: Age of Ultron is named? read more

Superior Spider-Man #27.NOW Review

Superior Spider-Man, set to end with issue #31, begins it’s final arc with Goblin Nation. The Green Goblin has taken control over the criminal underworld. Which leads us to wonder, is Ock-Spidey really “superior” after all?


When Dan Slott seemingly “killed” Peter Parker about a year ago, many fans were up in arms about it. Enter Superior Spider-Man, a comic were the villain becomes the hero. It’s a divisive creative move for some fans but, personally, I love the concept. This has created new and interesting story lines that we never would have seen with Peter Parker under the mask. Aside from a few vocal, rather negative, detractors to the series, people have really been eating it up, present company included! read more

She-Hulk #1 Review

Jennifer Walters skates by making a living as a New York City lawyer and spends the rest of her time Hulking out and beating up bad guys. When a woman in need comes to Jen for help, she agrees to take a case against her friend and Avengers teammate Tony Stark.


It’s becoming apparent that writer Charles Soule can do no wrong. The past 3 weeks he’s been on fire. 1st with Thunderbolts, then with Red Lanterns last week and now She-Hulk #1. But this issue in particular soars beyond the others. read more
