Father’s Day Mise en Place (June 11 to 17, ‘018)

A happy Father’s Day to all the super dads out there. I hope we can all enjoy our second-rate version of Mother’s Day. I was woken up bright and early with my daughter creepily standing over me waiting for me to open my eyes so that she could wish me a good day. But, the…

Comic Review: Oblivion Song #4

The Background- Robert Kirkman’s latest comic series continues to hit shelves with this fresh issue. I am surprised that the book does not seem to be as popular as you would expect.

Ready Player One, Avengers, and Star Wars have all happened before we have even reached the summer known for blockbusters. It kind of changes the whole dynamic of the movie calendar. I mean, this feels like the…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #4

The Background- DC’s attempt at swooping in and gaining the dedicated fan base of Fantastic Four seems to be working.  The Terrifics got off to a slower start than I am sure the publisher had hoped for, but it is gaining some ground.  After a three-part intro to settle us in- reviews can be found…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #3

The Background- I have just recently released my review for the second issue of The Terrifics (also, here is the first one for reference) and at the time I mentioned that there was a three-part run to establish the team. Well, with number three down I can safely say I feel established. Though nothing and…

Comic Review: Oblivion Song #3
