Infinity #1 is a Marvel Comics Event. It says so on the first page. I’d also say that might be slightly overstating things. Having read an advance comic, I’d call it either an Avengers Event or a third Avengers title for the duration of the story.
As past of my San Diego Comic-Con experience, I was lucky enough to be given a Mophie Juice Pack Plus to test as a back up power source for my iPhone. I always meant to get one but never had the $$ and the time to pick one up. Of course, zillions of people already have one, so I’m not spilling any secrets when I say that the Mophie made this Comic-Con a breeze compared to past ones, where finding a power outlet every six hours or so was my main goal in life.
I have seen The Wolverine! And boy was he shirtless a lot. This movie was half superhero film and half ringing endorsement for babyoil products. Hugh Jackman has returned as Logan for another round, and this time he’s surrounded by ninjas and on the prowl in Japan. Was it a good movie, though? Or was […]
Image Wrestling and Whispering: Lynda Barry’s Kaleidoscopic Modus in Girlhood Through the Looking Glass
The swing of this year’s SDCC has finally begun to wind down, and while there was inarguably no lack in the immense influx of comics/movie/merchandise-related news, there was amazingly still a capacity for SDCC to focus on and feature the burgeoning comic academic scene. Along with this year’s Comics Art Conference, the Eisner Awards […]
It’s been a while since I had a chance to properly crack into some reviews, so you’re getting a bit of an all-star lineup of books up on the slate this week. First up will be the very talked-about Young Avengers, the not-talked-about-enough Flash, and the talkative Quantum & Woody. I’d be interested to see […]
Monkeybrain have been going for a year now, garnering a fair handful of Eisner nominations and building up a substantial library of creator-owned titles. That in mind, what are their most recent releases like? Bandette seems to have taken most attention – let’s take a look at some of their other current comics.
This week’s been a big week for comics! All kinds of goings-on were, well, going-on. I’m narrowing it down to just the two comics, though. The ones everybody’s been talking about. Lazarus #1 from Image, and Hawkeye #11 from Marvel. Both books have fantastic creative teams and all the goodwill in the world pushing them […]
Representing comics production in popular culture has long been missing a piece of the puzzle. We’ve had excellent documentaries about ground-breaking creators like Will Eisner, characters like Wonder Woman, and even explorations of rising con-culture in the USA, but the least likely to receive attention, the mode of indie comics production right now, has come […]
A few years back, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark (along with Ed Brubaker) won a lot of critical acclaim for their work on DC’s Gotham Central. Rucka and Lark have reunited for Lazarus at Image. (Brubaker’s already been Fatale at Image for over a year, so the primary creators for Gotham Central seem to have relocated.)
Let me start by saying that THE HIC & HOC ILLUSTRATED JOURNAL OF HUMOR isn’t the most illustrious-looking small press anthology to recently come out. In terms of its sizing and format, this freshman compilation endeavor from Hic & Hoc is quite modest and free from glitzy eye-catching add ons like silk-screened dust jackets or […]
