Considering that reports say there was a massive bidding war, this tells us that the series is about to get better than we already expect….

Complete Ranking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Films

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is jam-packed with amazing movies. So much so that I have found myself claiming over a dozen of them are in my top five favourites. The problem is, I have been certain about which films are my absolute choice favourites, and I know which ones are swimming at the bottom, but…

Comic Review: Avengers #4

The Background- The Avengers are the biggest talk of the summer with Infinity War blowing our collective minds, but back in the comic world, the team is in their own shake-up. As part of Marvel’s new Legacy project, each of Marvel’s mainstay titles have been re-launched once again. Unlike some of the hard to swallow…

Comic Review: Amazing Spider-Man #1 (2018)

The Background- It’s yet another brand new day for the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man as the Amazing Spider-Man title is the latest of the Marvel re-launches.

Comic Review: Oblivion Song #5

The Background- For being into issue five, Oblivion Song is moving quickly along. Especially considering how much background was necessary for us to even understand what is going on.

Top Ten Superhero Families

Well, the time has finally come for me to go see Incredibles 2. I don’t know what has taken me so long as the first one is probably my favourite Pixar movie. As I get myself pumped up to see this super-powered family it got me thinking about some other great super families. So, for…

Comic Review: Terrifics #5

The Background- I have been eating the Terrifics series up. DC’s very own resident version of the Fantastic Four offers all the fun and adventure of its inspiring series, plus Plastic Man – who is one of the most humorous characters in all of comic books. There is a lot of good things on the…

Comic Review: Gideon Falls #4

The Background- Gideon Falls is one of the best new books on the comic shelves. More and more readers are starting to pay attention to this strange little series and it is quickly gaining mass popularity. I guarantee this is a comic like none you have ever read before. If you are not on the…

Comic Review: Avengers #3

The Background- While Avengers: Infinity War swings high above the unbelievable box office numbers of over $2 billion, there is no better time to be an Avengers fan. What a great time to be bringing the comics back to form with this relaunch of many titles including this Avengers series. Iron Man is returned from…

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. I mean, Kirkman is kind of one of the biggest names in the media currently with Walking Dead continuously dominating the stands, and…

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…
