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. I haven’t read the Fantastic Four on a regular basis in years.  I pick up the occasional issue here and there, and I keep up with word on the street about the book.  […]

REVIEW: Iron Man & X-Men Animated Series on DVD

Just last week Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released Iron Man: The Complete Animated Series and the X-Men: Animated Series Volume 5.  These cartoons from the 1990s hold a special place in my heart and I’m thrilled both entire series are now available on DVD.
