Review: Battlestar Galactica #1

In Comic Books, Dynamite by Michael Cieslak0 Comments

Dynamite’s Battlestar Galactica #1 is one of those first issues which expects the reader to come in to the property with a certain amount of previous knowledge. This might work well if it was an adaptation based on the more recent SyFy series, but this comic is s spin-off of the older series from the late 70s. Granted, it was …

Review: Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues

In Comic Books, Dynamite, Movies by Duff0 Comments

You either enjoy motion comics or you don’t. Simple as that. Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues is the latest pen and ink heroine to grace the medium. While I’m a fan of the sometimes jerky form of animation, I know many have a deep annoyance for it. I don’t get it. It’s bringing the art you love to life, in …

Comic Review: The Twilight Zone: 1959

In Comic Books, Dynamite by Regan Lorie1 Comment

So, “The Twilight Zone: 1959,” eh? I’m not even going to start with any flowery language to try to dress up how I feel about this book—no nostalgic personal story, no frills. I’m just gonna say it: As a huge fan of The Twilight Zone, this book totally pissed me off. These three words—The Twilight Zone—have a very specific set …

He’s a complicated man, that no one understands but……well, you know the rest.  Wait! You don’t know the rest?  WTF? Shaft my damies.

Comic Book Review: Cage Hero #3

The more I read this story, the more I enjoy it.  It’s not just the fact that it’s MMA and I really like MMA, it’s more than that.  I like the fact that Ian Parker has incorporated historical events, like The Vietnam Conflict and even MMA super-stars like Ronda Rousey.

Comic Review: RED SONJA Vol. 3 #1

In Comic Books, Dynamite by Duff1 Comment

Getting over a girlfriend is always tough, but it’s easier to move on when the new girl is just as attractive, nice, funny etc. This pretty much sums up how I feel about the new creative team for Red Sonja. Gail Simone and Walter Geovani are superb no doubt, but new writer Marguerite Bennett and artist Aneke defiantly fill their …

Comic Review: The Precinct #1

In Comic Books, Dynamite by Duff0 Comments

Likely one of my nerdiest secrets is my fascination with Steampunk culture. I don’t cos-play or read steampunk fan-fiction; nothing that dorky, but I do find scene interesting. Anything based off the works of Jules Verne can’t be all that bad, right? So I naturally took an interest in Dynamites latest entry into their steampunk universe, The Precinct. This 5-part …
