Codebreakers #4

Codebreakers #4

Codebreakers #4 is the final issue in this miniseries by BOOM!.  As you may guess from the title, the story revolves around analysts for the CIA.  They are not all number crunchers though, and that helps make this geeks as heroes titles more interesting.

 

Hellboy: “The Storm #1” It’s Walking Dead with Armor, What’s Not to Love?

Hellboy: “The Storm #1” It’s Walking Dead with Armor, What’s Not to Love?

Okay let’s the disclaimer out of the way first. I’ve been reading comics for more than a few years now, but for some reason I’ve never gotten around to picking up Hellboy. It’s not because I didn’t like the concept or the idea of the story, I just never really found the time. So, when […]

 

Area 10

Area 10

You should be aware, if you were wondering like me, that the title to this book has nothing to do with Area 51 and aliens. Instead, this Vertigo Crime novel’s title, Area 10,  refers to an area of the brain often the target for trepanning.  On a sliding scale of unreality, this crime story is […]

 

Incorruptible #7

Incorruptible #7

I was dubious about this comic at first:  Was it merely a pretender riding the coattails of the successful Irredeemable?  It was, after all, advertised as the reverse story of Irredeemable:  The villain is now the hero. However, seven issues in, I find myself liking Incorruptible more than Irredeemable for another area where they are […]

Little Red Envelope #4: Push

Little Red Envelope #4: Push

In my mailbox this week: Push Release Year: 2009 Staring: Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning Somehow, I think, Push, was one of those movies that slipped through the cracks. I remember (vaguely) that it was in the theaters, but not too much else. I think it might have been blurred in with, and confused with, the […]

Hey, There Aren’t Any Robots in This! #2

Hey, There Aren’t Any Robots in This! #2

Ok, so a main character did play a planet eating robot later, but get off my back! A classic noir piece from 1949 directed by Carol Reed, The Third Man stars Joseph Cotton, Orson Welles, Valli, and Trevor Howard, with a smaller role for Bernard Lee, the man most of us remember best as M […]

 

Ivan the Terrible Should Have Made a Dark Ale

Ivan the Terrible Should Have Made a Dark Ale

Sergei Eisenstein’s great film Ivan the Terrible demands as much from it’s viewers as it did it’s creators. That’s why I can’t and won’t mention a food that perfectly complements the film, because it doesn’t leave a lot of room for food. However, I can recommend a beverage, like a dark, Russian ale that you […]

 

I Kill Giants

I Kill Giants

One collected edition of note is I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura. In 2008, it was awarded “Best Indy Book of 2008” by IGN. Dan Kois (New York Magazine) put it in his top ten comics list for 2009. The Young Adult Library Services Association named it one of 2010’s “top […]

 

Ultimate Iron Man: Armor Wars

Ultimate Iron Man:  Armor Wars

Originally, I wasn’t going to review Ultimate Iron Man:  Armor Wars.  The hardcover collected edition of the four issue mini-series came out in the middle of April.  I wasn’t going to review it because after reading it, Armor Wars slipped from my mind fairly quickly. What’s that you say?  A book by Warren Ellis did […]

 

ADEQUATELY-SIZED PODCAST: Episode 6, “The Human Centipede”

ADEQUATELY-SIZED PODCAST: Episode 6, “The Human Centipede”

This week the guys review “Iron Man 2”, where Ben, Chad and Chris drool extensively over it.  Also reviewed was “Daybreakers” where everyone agreed that it was a cool idea, but Chris in the end hates on it.  The last movie the guys reviewed was the classic “Mad Max” (no, not the one with Tina […]

 

Comic Book Review: Kill Shakespeare #2, A 21st Century Classic

Comic Book Review: Kill Shakespeare #2, A 21st Century Classic

Up front, I have to be honest. I love modern storytelling. I was raised on the excitement of 20th Century pop-culture. My childhood was full of Lucas, Spielberg and Donner. My adulthood is garnished by Tarantino, Scorsese and Wes Anderson. Now, intellectually I understand that Shakespeare is a master storyteller. I know that if something […]

 

Rocket Singh Presents the First of Many Mangoes

Rocket Singh Presents the First of Many Mangoes

One of the primary reasons I think Bollywood films are worth watching is because they are brimming with wisdom, and Rocket Singh is no exception.

Behind Schedule: Scribblenauts Review for Nintendo DS

Behind Schedule: Scribblenauts Review for Nintendo DS

I don’t really buy games anymore, ever.  Thankfully, there are two days a year where people feel they are compelled to purchase things for me.  Recently, I had a birthday and on the day before, I wrote out a list of things I wanted since apparently everyone was shopping late for me.  Scribblenauts was on […]
