    "...sharply authentic....Fanboy's whip-smart, often hilariously sarcastic voice skillfully captures a teenager's growing self-awareness, and adds fresh, urgent perspective to age-old questions..."

Bendis… Even in New Jersey

Monday, January 15th, 2007

NJ.com picked New Avengers #22, which featured Luke Cage, as the Best Single Issue of 2006. It’s been clear for a long time that the mighty BMB had a soft spot for the tough-skinned guy (Alias, The Pulse, Daredevil, you name it), so it’s no surprise to me that he really nailed it in this […]

Bendis to Cap off Civil War!

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

Oh, how cool is THIS? Civil War #7 ships on February 21 (late, but worth it, I bet) and finishes off the series… NOT! The TRUE ending to the series will come courtesy NOT of series creators Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, but rather of the two guys who started it all waaaaay back in […]

Bendis Speaks!

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

There’s an excerpt from an upcoming print interview with Bendis on Newsarama and it’s AWESOME. He talks about the writing process, Hollywood, TV, the changing adminstrations he’s seen at Marvel, and all kinds of other stuff. Great stuff here. Reading Bendis’s comics reminds me why I like his work. Reading interviews like this remind me […]

New Avengers #25 Reviews

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

People are talking about it… Silver Bullet: From a critic who has definitely NOT liked Civil War to date, “…this issue was probably the coolest print having to do with Civil War in any way, shape or form.” Comixfan: “Not only has it offered a distinct tone and viewpoint of the war for each chapter […]

Bendis, The Greek Goddess?

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Whoa — my idol shares a name with a Greek goddess? According to Wikipedia.com, “Bendis was a Thracian goddess of the hunt whom the Greeks identified with Artemis, and hence with the other two aspects of the former Minoan Triple Goddess, Hecate and Persephone. She was a huntress, like Artemis, but was accompanied by dancing […]

New Bendis!

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

It’s always cause for celebration when word of a new Bendis title hits! Check it out: way back when, I blogged about New Avengers: Illuminati, which was written by — yes — Bendis. And only did a little something like set up a little something called, oh, Civil War! (It’s my opinion that CW would […]

Uh, hello? Spidey artist? Anyone…?

Monday, September 25th, 2006

Who is the new artist on Ultimate Spider-Man? Is this driving anyone else crazy? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I think Bagley’s run on the book is awesome and a major milestone that others will fall short of… But who’s next?

Wear it, say it proud

Oh, man. If I weren’t COMPLETELY broke, I would so totally buy this… If you have money, unlike me, you can buy it here.

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

There are few things in the world cooler than reading an awesome comic…and then finding that everyone else agrees with you that it’s awesome!

Ultimate Spider-Man – Volume 16

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Remember how positive I was about USM #99 and how I thought maybe the issues before it had been somewhat… lacking? Well, I was right. Only it’s worse than I remembered. I just picked up the trade paperback (it was sort of a slow week for me, though I did pick up a few other […]
