    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 […]

    3%: A Spoiler-Free Review on a Netflix Original

    No, this isn’t an article dissecting the 3% of the world’s population that are socially phobic. What’s at stake here is the 3% of impoverished Brazilian youth that successfully pass a rigorous dog-eat-dog test called, The Process; one that allows them to live affluently elsewhere. At least, that’s the focal subject in the dystopian world […]

    Fan fiction: DooM – The Fires of Phobos, Chapter 4

    Glowing jewels ran down the corridor, the plasma strikes the distant approaching invaders. “Fire in the hole” shouts a marine. The screeching grenade arched through the air and decimates a horde of aliens approaching from behind. Major Sargent Martinez was providing intel to Admiral Frost over a ultra frequency transmitter. “Mobility has been impaired. Our […]

    Arrival: Movie Review

    Ever since I stumbled on the trailer for this movie, I’ve been looking forward to it’s release. Being a Science Fiction fan, clearly the subject matter appeals to me but having director, Denis Villeneuve attached sealed it for me. Villeneuve’s last two films, Siccario & Prisoners, were both strong, especially Siccario. Would Arrival live up […]

    Doctor Strange: Movie Review

    It took a long time but Marvel’s sorcerer supreme finally got his own movie. As you may or may not have expected, the fanfare going into this movie was decent at best and tepid at worst. Still, this being a Marvel movie, it made a killing at the box office. I’ve always been a fan […]

    Reasons Why “Luke Cage” Feels Caged in Mediocrity

    Luke Cage, released September 30th as part of a long string of Marvel Cinematic Universe Netflix exclusives, has been met with many positive reviews, scoring a 79% metascore at Metacritic and 80% at imdb. But while many celebrated its unique contribution to the MCU (myself included), such as its music, predominantly black cast, and thematic […]

    Uprising – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S4E3)

    On the night of its season premiere, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. scored 3.44 million viewers overall, up from it season three finale that raked in just 3.03 million. However, the second episode the season didn’t fare as well, with a score of just 2.95 million viewers. That said, this time last year ABC was struggling to […]

    ‘Agents of SHIELD’: The Darkhold

    In a not unsurprising fashion, SHIELD is once again the tie-in to an upcoming big-screen Movie Adaptation (namely Doctor Strange). The second episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gives us a foothold into the supernatural in more ways than one. First, we have Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes who told Daisy that he sold his soul to […]

    The Ghost – Agents of Shield

    Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is leaning hard on Ghost Rider joining in Season 4 as a hook to get people watching the show, so it makes sense that Gabriel Luna’s take on Robbie Reyes would be introduced right at the beginning of the premiere, “The Ghost.” It was the right choice not to force viewers […]

    The Flashpoint Universe

    You might or might not know that the Season 2 finale of the Flash ended with Barry making an extremely fateful decision – namely re-writing history by choosing to save his parents from the Reverse Flash. What Barry didn’t take into account – or perhaps he did, and just didn’t care – is the impact […]
