8 Marvel Movie Fights That Kicked All the Ass
Comic Books, Film
I first discovered the joy of comics in 1980 when some girls on my school bus brought in their father's copies of Wendy and Richard Pini's "Elfquest" and the rest, as they say, is history. Since then, I've written freelance interviews and articles for "Wizard" (going all the way back to the first issue), headed up the Small Press Expo and the Ignatz Awards, served as an Eisner judge and written reviews regularly since 1999 (first for iComics.com, then moving to my own site Read About Comics).
I moved to the Washington DC area in 1974 and have yet to leave. I design and develop training for the Federal government during the day, and I've had both fiction and non-fiction professionally published. In my spare time I train for marathons and triathlons. I've promised my friends one of these days I'll run a race dressed as the Flash.
FIRST COMIC: "Elfquest" #5
FAVORITE CHARACTER: Fone Bone, Captain Britain, Rachel Summers Grey
Showing results 1787-1806 of 2473
"Justice League of America" and "Justice Society of America" start up a new crossover, but so far it's less than interesting.
Beyond the gimmick, there's not enough oomph in "Captain America: The 1940s Newspaper Strip" to carry it forward.
An uncharacteristically weak script from John Arcudi and a fill-in artist drawing some pages means a poor finale.
There's something for everyone in "Wonder Woman" #600, but overall it's not as strong as one would hope.
No Superman? No problem.
"X-Factor" finishes its "Second Coming" tie-in with not so much a bang, but a thud.
The stories are slight, but still a joy to read.
Crime noir Killer Croc.
"American Vampire" slays the competition.
A mixture of fun short-term plot, serious long-term plot, and a big shift in status quo. That's how I like my comics.
"Legion of Super-Heroes" is feeling oddly slow despite an expanded page count.
"Age of Heroes" is less a collection of short stories, and more a group of teasers.
Next to the great fun of the regular "Muppet Show" comic, this unfortunately can't compare.
Peter Milligan brings Shade the Changing Man back, and it's a long overdue reunion.
"Ultimate X" introduces a brand new character and that ever-present narration finally starts to work.
"Second Coming" lumbers towards its conclusion at a reasonable pace, and for a change without a high body count.
"Birds of Prey" #2 sets up the remaining two chapters of its opening storyline, and gets the band back together.
"R.E.B.E.L.S." has quietly morphed back into "L.E.G.I.O.N." but can it save this series?
"Daredevil" wraps up its prelude to "Shadowland," but it's unfortunately a tiny bit predictable.
This issue of "Jonah Hex" seems designed to welcome viewers of the upcoming movie, which is a smart plan.
