Review: Man-Thing #1 (2017)

STORY BY: Daniel Warren Johnson and R.L. Stine ART BY: German Peralta COLORS BY: Mat Lopes and Rachelle Rosenberg COVER BY: Tyler Crook The much anticipated run by Goosebumps author R.L. Stine has arrived and its is undeniably okay. I will say right off I was not overly impressed by the debut issue. That being said I understand that this is a first issue and as such it has a lot of weight to pull setting up the new premise and establishing a [...]

Logan: My Thoughts

I saw Logan a week ago and if I were a good blogger/critic I would have immediately wrote up my thoughts and threw them out there for the world to see with a clickbait-able title and some snarky and/or gushing praise and let the sweet, sweet page views roll in. Unfortunately I’m not that kind of writer. Oh, it’s not that I have any kind of, you know, integrity or anything it’s just that it [...]

Hey, What You Reading? Black Panther #2

The philosophy of motivation. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze's second issue of Black Panther builds directly off the world-building setup of the first. Now that the players have been identified and the political chessboard set, it is time to go a little deeper into the minds of those characters. And what we find are no clear answers; we are left to wonder just who is doing the right thing and who is the people's champion? You [...]

Captain America Is A Nazi: Why That Matters

So the big reveal from last week's Captain America: Steve Rogers first issue is that Captain America - Sentinel of Liberty and all around nice guy - is actually a Nazi. Okay, not a Nazi exactly - a Hydra sleeper agent. But Hydra, no matter how many times its been retconned over the years, has always been Marvel shorthand for Nazi. That means Captain America is a Nazi. And always has been, according to the [...]

Hey, What You Reading? Black Panther #1

This is easily my most anticipated comic of the year. When it was announced last year that Black Panther would relaunch as a solo tile with Ta-Nehisi Coates as the writer, well, my interest was piqued to say the least. Ta-Nehisi Coates' articles in The Atlantic have been must reads for me for quite a long time (if you have not read his stuff, do so now). His writing on politics and race and culture [...]

Hey, What You Reading? Captain America: Sam Wilson #1

Captain America is a great character when done right. In the hands of a writer that understands the character, Cap is a symbol of honor and courage and leadership. And, him being a walking flag and all, he can be used as a way to start discussions on the political climate of the day. Problem is he is not always done right. And in the hands of a writer that does not understand him Cap's [...]

Paul Matthew Carr

Paul is a writer, artist and designer. He spends an inordinate amount of time on the Internet blogging about silly things and even more time making things up and then attempting to convince people they are proper stories. He also talks into microphones from time to time.

Brian K. Reese

Brian is the kinda guy who likes both kinds of music: Country and Western. A little trash, a little junk, a little grease, a little truckin’. Also a big fan of DC and Image and makes concessions for Marvel. Also, an irritable, opinionated bastard.
