It is the cosmic entity Silver Surfer vs. the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man in today’s Deconstructed! A battle of epic heroes. Two of Marvels biggest headliners going toe to toe. In all honesty, Spider-Man doesn’t stand a chance against the powers cosmic. But, for the sake of putting these two heavy hitters together in one book,…

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman is a legend, no doubt about it. However, I find many of his books hit or miss. The author is dominant when scribing a comic or children’s book- Fortunately, the Milk is one of my favourite reads. When it comes to other books like American Gods, I had a difficult time getting invested…

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…

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…

Black Hammer: Secret Origins by Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston

It is about time I got around to reviewing the 2017 Eisner Award winner for best new series, Black Hammer. Written by none other than my favourite comic scribe, and constant hero of the Green Onion Blog, Jeff Lemire. Funny, I put this book off because I worry that you, the readers, are sick of…

Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

I have read an insane amount of positive reviews on Illuminae and its sequel, Gemina.  It almost feels like I am the last book blogger to hop on this train.  What took me so long?  I have no idea.  One of the biggest appeals for these books is their unique structure.  Unique book design is…
