‘Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #2’ Review


The second issue of Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures manages to far surpass the entertainment value of the first. And the first issue was good, need I remind you.

‘Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #1’ Review


How could we not review this?

Two of the greatest… well, five of the greatest heroes to ever land within the pages of a comic book together to kick… well, nothing yet, really.

‘Torchwood: Station Zero Part 1’ Review


I’m new to Torchwood, and it’s an active enough tale that walking into this story after having failed – thus far – to catch up on the first Torchwood series, proves a task. The writing isn’t profoundly complex, and we get the early impression that we’re dealing with a pretty straight forward science fiction piece, but there are an assortment of characters, and Station Zero Part 1 wastes no time in letting us know we’ve got to learn names and faces extremely quickly (there’s a character guide to kick the book off, thankfully) to have a firm understanding of what’s happening.

‘Weird Detective #1’ Review


Fred Van Lent is one of hell of a writer, and as it just so happens, Guiu Vilanova is an excellent artist. Together these two deliver an absolutely unmissable story: Weird Detective. If crime noir, bleak horror and Lovecraft influence is a mixture you can wrap your head around, you may actually fall in love with this book.

‘Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21’ (Review) Wedding of Peter and Mary Jane


This is an amazing book stuffed with so many ups and downs it is unreal. Spidey rocks his black suit for the issue, Electro makes an appearance and he does a fine job of testing Spider-Man’s skills. There are explosions, structure destruction, good old hand to hand combat – we get a little bit of everything, and that’s just in the first few pages.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man #121’ (Review) The Death of Gwen Stacy


The opening page of this book promises that someone very important to Spider-Man will die in this issue. But who is it? Are they that important? Will they leave behind a mark on the book and Peter’s heart?

The View from the Trailer Park: ‘Logan’ – Jackman’s Back; Brilliant Finale!


Written by: Daniel McDonald

I’ve been posting quite a bit of my 20/20 series of T.V.F.T.T.P. because there’s mucho buried treasure at your fingertips, I want to make sure you folks are taking advantage of.

I have to submit this review, because A) I had the glorious opportunity to visit the local cinema (my church), B) A film opened over the weekend that is not only top of the line in its genre, and C) it is top of the line AND easily the best 2017 cinematic offering so far, period.

First Appearances: ‘Detective Comics #359’ Review (First Appearance of Batgirl)


Batman comics feel as though they’ve always flip flopped between an incredibly bleak existence and a ham-fisted, over-the-top goof-athon. I enjoy both stretches for the caped crusader, though I’ll openly admit that the darker side of Batman’s existence has always intrigued me more than any other character during any period of time. But that doesn’t mean the light-hearted books stink, or underwhelm. They’ve got a charm all their own, and that’s evident in Detective Comics #359, the very book that introduced the Batgirl to the world of the comic book fan.

‘The Avengers #4’ Review – Captain America Joins The Avengers!


Growing up I was a fan of the Avengers, but not an uber loyal fan. If I missed a book I didn’t sweat it too much. But looking back, this is and always has been a mighty fine book. We get some of the greatest heroes in existence teaming up to kick a wide variety of rear-end. It’s fun. Captain America is a certified boss. Iron Man and Thor are handy to smash skulls. It’s just got a lot of really good things going for it, including the work of a much younger Stan Lee and the great Jack Kirby.
