Deconstructed: World’s Finest Comics #302

I cannot stand Ben Affleck as Batman! Sorry, I need to just say it once in a while, especially since he all bit ruined the new Justice League preview. Like, I am all “wow, Aqua Man looks cool. Ahh, Flash is rad. Ooh, they look good.” And then there’s emo Affleck trying way to hard…

5 Must See September ‘017 Movies

I recently read an article on how movie ticket sales have been down this year. With as many flops and fails that were intended to be box office smashes, it doesn’t come as a surprise. The only saving grace thus far has been super hero movies, which everyone has been worried would dry up. Ticket…

Deconstructed: Plastic Man Vol.4 #1

Once again Plastic Man is making his return to mainstream DC comics. Despite having his own television series, and being a reoccurring member of the Justice League, ol’ Patrick ‘Eel’ O’Brian’s superhero career has fluctuated from nobody to notoriety countless times. Now, with comic guru, Jeff Lemire at the helm, Plastic Man is about to…
