Ant-Man:Season One

July 17, 2012 | Drew | (2 Comments)

I was filled with excitement as I opened Ant-Man Season One for the first time.  Ironic considering that until I stared doing this site, he was not even in the list of my favorite hero’s  but his early stories and his character has seemed to grow on me; So much so that a modern In-Continuity retelling I thought would be just the kind of thing for me to love, and to bring new people into contact with the not so well-known hero.

Also so far, my feeling of the Season One stories has been  of how well they have been done.  But this one, is different; even as I sit down to do my comic book  review of it, it leaves me divided.  I did love the art and story, but I also feel it fell short of the goals of the season one titles.

March 21, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

For today’s comic book review I read Tales To Astonish #52, starting Giant-Man and The Wonderful Wasp!  Just from the cover of the classic comic book I seen great promise, and not just from the words, but also from the clean appearance. but is the tale titled “The Black Knight Strikes!” meant to be a good one? or is it something that should have been forgotten by history?

Strange Tales #114
Captain America*

February 3, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

That is right, you read the cover right, likely after looking at the stunning image of Captain America standing there, and his shield deflecting fireballs from the human Torch.  The cover indeed does say, im the big White and Yellow letters just what you think it did. “From out of the Golden Age of Comics into the Marvel Age, Captain America Returns To Challenge The Human Torch!”

It is the kind of cover, that would make anyone who had an inkling of an idea of the old great hero want to thumb though the comic magazine and see just what happens.  So As such, todays comic review is for The story titled “Captain America*

I do not feel that this story needs any further summery then what the cover and what I already said offers,  that in this issue we get to see two legendary characters, together at last*.

*To understand the asteric, read the issue  (more…)

Tales To Astonish #48
Ant-Man And The Wasp Defy The Porcupine!

January 25, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

For today’s Comic Book Review I read and reviewed the Ant-Man and the wasp story from “Tales To Astonish #48” and what I found was an astonishing tale titled “Ant-Man And The Wasp Defy The Porcupine!

the basic outline of the story is one of an evil scientist, a weapons developer for the military develops what he see’s as the ultimate weapon, but decides to use it for his own good instead of turning it over to the army.  Thus he takes on the name of Porcupine and starts his life of crime as a bank robber.

For today’s comic book review i am proud to bring the story titled “A Skrull Walks Among Us!” from Fantastic Four #18; this is the second appearance of the alien race the Skrull in marvel, and the first appearance of Super-Skrull.

To provide a short Summery of Fantastic Four #18, we have the story begin with our hero’s relaxing, but it turns out while there at rest, far far away the skrull empire is preparing.   Wanting to get rid of the Fantastic Four, after they foiled them in the second issue; their plan, to create a Super-Skrull, a solder with all the powers of the Fantastic Four, only greater. In this they succeed and send him to earth to start their conquest.

Can The Fantastic Four, defeat an opponent who can duplicate each of their power’s and use them better?  Is the Skrull plan as full proof as they suspect, can there solder not be defeated?

Fantastic Four #10
The Return of Doctor Doom

October 11, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

In Fantastic Four #10 we have everything, a great villain Dr. Doom, We have Jack Kirby and Stan Lee making guest appearances as themselves. if nothing else, Seeing Jack & Stan in print makes this a must read. But does a guest appearance of the writers and creators of our stars make it good? or is it good no matter what?
