DC Comics Sells Over 5 Million Comic Books in Six Weeks

According to a press release from the major comic book publisher, the New 52 relaunch has set records and shown the company has experienced its best sales number in over two decades. While the relaunch has drawn praise and scorn from readers all over the world, it is clear that DC Comics has achieved what […]

Review: Justice League Dark #1

The single thing I was most excited about with DC Comics’ New 52 initiative was the way that Vertigo was clearly bleeding into the DC Universe. With the inclusion of Swamp Thing and John Constantine into the DC Universe, the publisher declared that all the things that go bump in the night were going to […]

Collecting Yourself into the Ground

So pissed off from my trip to the mall. There’s a place there called “The Bargain Box.” The owner just opened a stand alone comic shop. It’s terrible. There are more crappy dvds than comics in the shop. Anyways I’m getting off topic. I go to “Comix & Collectibles” in hopes of finding an Action […]

Review: Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E.

Both have been criminally over used to the point that they have become a comic book meme. The biggest and […]

Week 2 of DC Comic’s New 52 & Thoughts on ComiXology

I’ve made it no secret that I have been excited about DC Comics’ relaunch with its New 52 titles. I grew up a Marvel kid, left comics for a bit and then returned to comics just as DC was doing another event, oddly enough titled 52. Seems like 52 is a good number for me […]

Review: Action Comics #1

Whenever Grant Morrison is involved with a Superman title, it’s safe to say it’s going to be unique. Lets be honest, Superman or not, Morrison is never business as usual. In my mind, business as usual is the problem with a lot of the major titles in comic books right now, so I was excited […]
