    “4,722 Hours” – Jemma Simmons is a BAMF (SHIELD S3E5)

    “4,722 Hours” makes it clear that, though she may not seem like the best candidate to survive on an alien planet, Jemma Simmons has some pretty mad skills.   When “4,722 Hours” began with the flashback to the scene where Simmons got pulled into the Monolith and taken to the other planet, I wondered “Wait, […]

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D – A Most wanted (Inhu)Man

    A Most wanted (Inhu)Man – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S3E3) The president’s ATCU (Advanced Threat Containment Unit) begins hunting down inhumans across the country. Meanwhile, Simmons begins her rehabilitation after her extended stay on the alien world. While the title for “A Wanted (Inhu)man” referred to Lincoln, and his story was solid, the episode’s most notable […]

    Artist Spotlight: Mike Mignola

    For this month’s artist spotlight I’m featuring the man responsible for creating Hellboy. Basically a character that helped to establish Dark Horse comics as a legitimate competitor  to DC and Marvel comics. Mike Mignola had already established himself as a unique talent in the comics industry prior to creating Hellboy. His stock was on the […]

    Purpose in the Machine – AOS S3E2

    OK, bit of a mixed bag this week as the impressive season opener did not really carry through in my opinion into week two.  While there was still quite a bit going on in this episode, the team was somewhat fractured dealing with all of the different responsibilities and goals that they needed to address. The […]

    Laws of Nature – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S3E01)

    I take back everything bad I’ve ever said about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and their inability to show people with powers. While season one and two had a dearth of special-effects this season already has kicked off with a bang.  Of course effects by themselves generally aren’t enough you also need to have the underlying story […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: THE THINGS WE BURY (S2E08)

    Opening: Last episode was one of revelations. We found out what the map is to (sort of) and we get a hint of fugitive Ward’s next move (with his brother).  Season 2 has been excellent in general, so I was anticipating this episode eagerly, especially since it hinted that we’d get to see some more […]

    Agent Carter – Now is Not the End

    Okay I’m not going to belabor the obvious when I talk all about the inequality of women or the fact that Peggy Carter is wearing some pretty tight tops(!) – I think both of these points are covered very well in Agent Carter itself and doesn’t bear repeating ad nauseum! So with that being said let’s move […]

    Scars – Agents of Shield

    No, no, no … this is not good.  Just finished watching this one (I know a bit late … sorry about that, was out of town) and I’ve got a hole in my stomach.  Basically, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong and while I managed to get to Avengers prior to watching this […]

    Aftershocks

    And we’re back!  Marvels Agents of Shield returned with the bang yesterday to our screens and our hearts and while I for one was a definite fan of Agent Peggy Carter, Jarvis, Sousa and the gang at the SSR, I’m so very happy to have my favorite crime fighting/mystery solving group back on TV!  Please […]

    Some things you may have missed in Agent Carter

    Who is Leet Brannis? A question my fellow long time comic readers already recognize him as one of the criminal foes of The Whizzer. A small time crook and some time crime boss with a real longing for other peoples jewelry. In this adaptation however Leet Brannis is definitively a cog in the Leviathan operation and […]

    Agent Carter – Time and Tide

    OK… this is the one that everybody is looking at.  You would expect that in the premiere episode for the two parter they would do an amazing job however can they keep the momentum going on and keep you interested and coming back for more? That’s the question everybody had in their head and I’m very […]
