Deconstructed: Alpha Flight #2

This week I held a poll to decide on this weeks issue for Deconstructed. From my end it was an exciting turn of events. Starting off the poll it looked like it would be a unanimous vote for Tales of the Teen Titans. Not surprising, as the Titans are one of the most popular teams…

Sunday Mise en Place (Oct. 9 to 15, ‘017)

Good day, and good week. Welcome back to the Sunday Mise en Place (MeP). Due to an influx of visitors at the Green Onion Blog (GOB), this seems like a good time to rewind and recap what the hell the Mise en Place is all about. The term ‘mise en place’ is a french culinary…

Deconstructed: What If… Vol. 2 #23

The appeal of Marvel’s What If… series has never worn off on me. The parallel world books launched in the 70’s when the big question was: What If… Spider-Man joined the Fantastic Four? Which supplied the obvious answer that they would be the Fantastic Five… Growing up during the 90’s the What If… books were…

Top 10 Fictional Bands

Not to be confused with American Thanksgiving, or Wrong Thanksgiving (Wrong-giving), which happens at some other point of time. So, before I start work on the Thanksgiving dinner mise en place, I need…

Deconstructed: Flash Vol. 2 #23

New York Comic Con is in full swing this weekend, and I couldn’t be more jealous of 200,000 people. The largest comic convention in North America is expected to drop some big announcements this year. More importantly may be the big trailers expected like Thor, and Star Wars. But, probably already dropped by the time…

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I’ll be honest with you, I have been putting off writing this book review for a while. I’ve had many mixed feelings towards this YA-novel, and needed time to put my thoughts in order. Whether my opinions are in order yet, I’m not sure, but I will try to give you the best review I…
