Dark Horse makes a ‘Sacrifice’

SACRI-HC-4x6-SOLRemember how the end of the world was supposed to happen last year? I was not fooled either. But Sam Humphries saw it as an opportunity to use it as a basis for Sacrifice, a 6 part series following Hector, a Joy Division fan and an epileptic like Humphries himself. This man from San Diego is thrown back in time 700 years in a psychedelic journey to heart of of the Aztec Empire. I found this series a great read with all the insight into the Aztec culture and history. More

    Review: Hawkeye Annual #1

    Totes have a planI always liked Kate Bishop better than Clint Barton. Well, not always, but, you know, since she was introduced in Young Avengers, she was my favorite Hawkeye. She’s apparently been hanging out with Clint, and in this issue she gets sick of him and heads to the west coast to find herself while Clint eats Alphabits in his underwear. More

          Review: Ultimate Comics Ultimates #27

          Ultimates 27 headerHave you ever read a Silver Age Superman comic where something totally insane is happening on the cover, and it ends up being completely misleading and has little to do with the story on the inside? Well, that’s not the case with this month’s Ultimates, as the depiction of Reed Richards surgically extracting an Infinity Gem from Tony Stark’s brain on the cover is exactly what happens in this issue. It turns out Anthony the talking brain tumor is really an Infinity Gem, and Reed has found it. More

            Review: The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #1

            Superior Foes panelI’m not entirely sure why Nick Spencer isn’t the biggest name in comic books right now. He’s one of the best writers around, and he puts out like a million books every month. His newest title is The Superior Foes of Spider-Man, which despite glowing early reviews I was a bit weary about. I mean, I’m really not a fan of Doctor Octopus as Spider-Man. I’m okay with shaking up the status quo, but Superior Spider-Man? It’s kind of lame. More

              Review: Lazarus #1

              Lazarus #1You may have heard me complain in the past that first issues usually spend their time setting up the future plot of the book rather than telling a story. Greg Rucka is someone who can do both. By sewing the seeds of the larger narrative rather than spelling it out explicitly, Rucka manages to tell a complete story in 22 pages that still sets up a larger plot. More

                Review: Green Lantern: New Guardians #21

                Green Lantern NG21 PanelNew Guardians was always a bit of a confusing subtitle for Kyle Rayner’s ongoing Green Lantern title. It was, for the most part, free of any new guardians. Rather, for the first year and a half it focused on Kyle and a group of representatives of the other lantern corps. It seems, however, that the story of Kyle Rayner becoming the White Lantern was just prelude to the events of this issue. More

                  Weekend Reading: Genshiken Omnibus 1

                  The reason I’m going to Japan for this week’s pick is that Genshiken is the kind of comic you won’t often find from American comic book companies. It’s a slice of life book that focuses on a college club for otaku, The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, also known as the Genshiken. The story starts with the introduction of the Genshiken’s three newest members: Sasahara Kanji, who is shy and quiet, the outgoing and handsome yet oblivious Kosaka Makoto, and Kosaka’s girlfriend Kasukabe Saki. They’re soon joined by Ohno Kanako, a cosplayer and the first official female member of the Genshiken. More

                    Weekend Reading: Annihilation Books 1-3

                    Annihilation1

                    Annihilation may be the finest super-hero crossover title ever written. Keith Giffen, along with Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning and others, took an group of mostly unused Marvel heroes and villains and told a story so successful it lead to a cameo in The Avengers and a Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This epic story straddles three collections, each a piece of a larger whole. More

                                    Godzilla vs Biollante Blu-ray review

                                    I am going to review the Blu-ray experience of this movie distributed by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

                                    The menus is laid out very nice with Play Movie, Scene Select, Language Setup, and Bonus Features. Being an Audiophile, I had to laugh at the choices for the Audio set up; 5.1 DTS Japanese, 2.0 DTS Japanese, or 1.0 Dolby Digital. There are also 3 offers for Subtitles as well. The menu graphics shows the updated logo title and a loop window of various clips from the film and an example of the wire frame military graphics of Godzilla.  More
