    Black Panther Review

    Having lived in Africa for quite a few years, I was a bit torn with this film. Overall it was an enjoyable experience, but it wasn’t perfect in my opinion and while its popularity cannot be denied, there were definitely issues with it in my opinion.  The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) really showed their creative […]

    Logan : Movie Review

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been seventeen years since Hugh Jackman first suited up to play Wolverine/ Logan. I remarked to a friend of mine that Hugh Jackman had been Wolverine one year longer than we had been friends. That said, I knew it was going to be bittersweet seeing him pop his claws […]

    Great Comic Book Covers- Feat: The Hulk

    They always say  ” never judge a book by it’s cover”, and while that’s proven to be true on many an occasion this installment is about the latter. More specifically, judging the cover itself. What makes a great cover? Is it the art? The artist? The action? The drama? The significance? All these factors do […]

    Marvel Comics: The Best One Shot Single Issue Stories

    The single issue comic book is almost a lost art. These days, it’s far more common to have long story arcs and often times this can allow for several crossovers between other books. While I love long form storytelling, I appreciate the art of telling a succinct and compelling story with just one issue. Sometimes […]

    Artist Spotlight: Bill Sienkiewicz

    Bill Sienkiewicz ( pronounced Sin-ke-vich) is a comics legend and one of my favorite artists of all time. He’s pretty much worked on every prominent comic character for DC, Marvel and more. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve picked up a book from the 80’s, 90’s, or 2000’s and found his name attached. […]

    Why X-Men Apocalypse Did Not X-ceed X-pectations

    X-Men Apocalypse, the third film among the soft-rebooted X-Men cinematic universe, has been widely met with mixed reviews, one of which was written by a colleague, valentinf. I am inclined to agree with the bag of mixed nuts and as an addendum, I’d like to share in detail the finer points of failure. I do […]

    Sadly, comic legend Darwyn Cooke passed away on May 14th of this year. He was only 53 years old. Cooke, no doubt had more stories to tell, and with his impressive track record you know that we will be missing out on fantastic pieces of work. Cooke was a Toronto born creator who started fairly […]
