REVIEW: Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on DVD Vol. 1 & 2

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I sat down to watch The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes vol. 1 & 2 on DVD.  The Avengers are one of my all-time favorite superhero teams.  I have nearly 400 issues of Avengers comics, so I consider myself a reasonably dedicated fan.  Iron Man and Iron Man 2 […]

REVIEW: Stargate Universe Season 1.5 DVD

Stargate Universe. When the show first premiered, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I compared it to previous Stargate series, Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek: Voyager.  Within a couple weeks all that was forgotten and it was rapidly becoming one of my favorite shows on TV. If you’ve never seen the show, the […]

REVIEW: Batman Odyssey #1 by Neal Adams

You Should Be Reading the Fantastic Four

You should be reading the Fantastic Four monthly comic.  Seriously.  It’s surprisingly good.  Let me rephrase that… it’s surprisingly REALLY, REALLY good.
