Countdown to Action Comics 1000 part 4

This week we acknowledge Kryptonite. Everyone knows that Kryptonite is Superman’s primary weakness. Through the years, there have been many uses for Kryptonite. It is not just the green which weakens Kryptonians, but several other colors which have a variety of effects. To learn more, check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUEV9_IBuRE   Foes of Superman #7 Metallo is one of the reasons I mention Kryptonite in the start of this week’s article.

Marvel to relaunch comics again… and why it isn’t that big of a deal.

Marvel to relaunch comics again… and why it isn’t that big of a deal.

As many of you have probably heard already Marvel is planning yet another relaunch in May 2018.  I often hear DC Comics get criticised for how often they relaunch (I’m using the term relaunch instead of reboot, as the issue numbers get changed but the continuity of the world has not changed) but it is actually Marvel that does it far more often.  Since 2011 DC has only relaunched 3 times.  New 52 (2011), DC…

Advanced Copy Review : Oblivion Song by Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo Di Felici

Advanced Copy Review : Oblivion Song by Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo Di Felici

I had recommended this title in the January Previews Post on Kirkman’s name alone. I am a fan of The Walking Dead Comics, and I enjoy Robert Kirkman’s storytelling, so I wanted to give this a fair shot, so when an Advance Edition came with our comic order I thought I’d give it a read and share my early thoughts!  First and foremost it was odd to open the pages to colour! While muted, the…
