“Optimus Prime” #3

“Optimus Prime” #3’s plot may be unfolding at a slower pace than readers may expect, but the series has seemingly found a nice groove with quiet-but-interesting character interaction. Author John Barber’s Transformers tends to have a sleek, more restrained writing style, but the last issue of the series introduced a brand new faction of Transformers that spiced up the entire issue. While this comic is focused on the continuing adventures of the most famous autobot of them all, the sprawling cast [Read Entire Story]

Loot Crate’s “ORIGINS” Box Review For January 2017

The first Crate of the year is ORIGINS. Did Loot Crate start 2017 off on the right note? Let’s find out. This Loot Crate exclusive, tiny, stackable TMNT tiki mug was definitely an awesome addition (this month’s pin gives you an idea of the scale). Plus, there’s still time to collect (most of) the set. This month’s shirt was Mario-themed. Absolutely nothing wrong with that. I love it when comics are added to Crates, and this one was definitely unique. It’s a [Read Entire Story]

Wrapping Wednesday: Micro Reviews for the Week of January 25, 2017

There is a lot to cover on Wednesdays. We should know, as collectively, we read an insane amount of comics. Even with a large review staff, it’s hard to get to everything.

Assassin’s Creed: Templars #9 Written and Illustrated by Dennis Calero Reviewed by Gregory Ellner Dennis Calero’s writing of the Templar faction, [Read Entire Story]

‘Black Sails’ Final Season Review: Starz Series Doesn’t Make Waves Anymore

Having debuted in January 2014, the voyage of Starz's Black Sails is coming to an end, with the premiere of the fourth and final season of the pirate drama set for Sunday. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of wind at the back of the Emmy-winning Treasure Island prequel's final 10 episodes, and not many waves to be made by its exit. As I say in my video review above, with Power and Outlander now generating much of the heat for the now Lionsgate-owned Starz, it makes… SOURCE: Deadline - [Read Entire Story]

The Mary Tyler Moore Show’s Journey, From Critically Panned to Universally Beloved

The Mary Tyler Moore show was the first television sitcom in America to portray a single working woman’s lifestyle in a way that was not dreary or overly pitiful. That it dovetailed so perfectly the rise of the second wave feminist movement was partially kismet, but its impact can still be felt today, particularly…Read more...

Mignolaveristy: “Hellboy Winter Special 2017”

The “Hellboy Winter Special” returns! It appears this is going to be an annual thing now, which seems pretty cool to us.

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Last Word’

Here’s a new movie rule: If you’re going to sit through a Sundance “crowd-pleaser,” complete with cardboard situations and cheeseball snark and life lessons, it’s always better if that movie stars Shirley MacLaine. In “The Last Word,” she plays — what else? — a cutely difficult pie-eyed pixie-curmudgeon who is always scolding everyone and telling... Read more » SOURCE: Variety - Read entire story here.

‘Fraud’ (review)

Executive Produced by David Gordon Green, Jody Hill, Danny McBride, Brandon James Produced by Riel Roch-Decter, Sebastian Pardo Written and Directed by Dean Fleischer-Camp Ok now, the movie Fraud lists itself on IMDB as a documentary and provides the synopsis of, “A Struggling family commits fraud.” Now let’s first state that this clearly is not a real documentary and apparently the “director” has already admitted as much. Fraud is however a re-edit of a family’s home movies along with some [Read Entire Story]

“Chew Volume 12: Sour Grapes”

With ‘Sour Grapes,’ its 12th collected volume, “Chew” does something impressive: it ends its story on its own terms, in a tone and manner consistent with everything that came before. Even though John Layman and Rob Guillory were obviously working from a plan since they set out (in the afterward, Layman mentions that the ending they turned in was the same one he pitched aeons ago), the book undoubtedly evolved and developed into some other entity. Yet, as this final volume shows, “Chew” never [Read Entire Story]

Pick Of The Week: “The Mighty Captain Marvel” #1

Higher. Further. Faster. More relaunches than you can shake a stick at that. That’s the “Captain Marvel” motto. With “Civil War II” thankfully left to be forgotten in the past, it’s time for Carol Danvers to pick up the pieces of her life with the help of new creative team of Margaret Stohl and Ramon Rosananas. Can Captain Marvel finally move on with her life after such a major out of character episode turned her into a worse strawman villain than Iron Man in [Read Entire Story]

“Curse Words” #1

Charles Soule and Ryan Brown on the surface – except for the silent ‘e’ at the ends of their surnames – don’t have a ton in common. Soule, a lawyer and writer of serious, dense comics and Browne, a cartoonist that pushes comics into absurd and surrealist places don’t jump out as a potentially simpatico pairing. But “Curse Words” shows you that appearances can be deceiving, and that this creative team is a match made in wizard heaven. Keep reading [Read Entire Story]

“Monsters Unleashed” #1

My first thought upon hearing about “Monsters Unleashed” was a slightly amused “Huh, this could be interesting.” But then I remembered what this means: every hero team fighting monsters together is the perfect breather after multiple consecutive events where heroes fight each other. That’s all the motivation I needed to get excited for this, so let’s take a look and see if it’s as entertaining as I’d hoped.
