TMNT: Are the Modern Comics ‘Good?’

In 1984, the turtles made their first impression on the world through comics and exploded. Despite the already crowded and fantastical world of comics, the four mutated brothers found themselves household names well-before 1990, with a cartoon that had been out for three years at that point. Now, the...

Cowboy Bebop: Spike and a Ship-Load of Unused Potential

I wish I remembered who recommended Cowboy Bebop to me because it’s one of my favorites, sparking perhaps the biggest internal debate I have ever experienced within my quirky, nerd-filled brain. “A forgotten piece of history,” they said before claiming, “it’s a masterpiece- perhaps one of the greatest anime of all...

Black, White, and Blood: Are They Worth Reading?

Perhaps the biggest complaint when reading comics is that most stories requires you to have read several series beforehand to understand the current reading. Unfortunately, it’s inevitable, and it’s what makes it so hard for beginners to enter the comic world without being completely lost. However, that denseness and...

DBZ: Buu’s Case For Best Villain In The Series

What was the first anime you watched? Well, you specifically might not have started with Dragon Ball Z like a large portion of anime fans (particularly in the United States), beginning with the mainstream series packed with action and an overwhelming amount of transformations and power-ups. It’s a highly acclaimed show,...

Spectre 1992: Hidden Gem? Or Just Another Average Comic?

Before diving into the third Volume of Spectre comics debuting in 1992, first, I must ask the question, “what do you think about comics from the nineties?” Well, I think it’s very hard to argue against the point that the nineties were a chaotic time for both Marvel and...

How Venom Bonded With Everything That Ever Lived

Venom, the parasitic jelly from space that has carved out its own section of the Marvel Comics mythos. The character has been popular since his first appearance in Amazing Spider-Man 360, but recently, the character has exploded into an A-lister. And as an A-lister, writers, and artists have been...

Heroes Reborn: Man, Do We Have A Mess Of A Reality On Our Hands

WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD! DC’s New 52 and Rebirth sucks! Well, maybe not depending on who you’re talking to, but the bottom line is, changing a universe’s status quo can be quite risky. Sure, alternate realities are generally the way to go with storylines such as Flashpoint, Old Man Logan, and Incredible Hulk: Imperfect Future (Maestro) having...
