I’ll never get to see Queen, and I mean REAL Queen, live. The new Fantastic Four movie will never be good. And we will never get a Doctor Who episode where all the Doctors meet.

Vertigo Comics’ TRILLIUM Nov13

Vertigo Comics’ TRILLIUM

Trillium Vertigo Comics Script and art by Jeff Lemire Let’s start with the obvious. Jeff Lemire is a genius and we should all be in awe of his greatness. To achieve an ounce of his talent is to achieve become one with the Gods of Story. Long may they reign. He is amazing, his work is amazing, and everything he can do is amazing. OK, that’s out of the way. “Trillium.” To put it quickly, its amazing. How to accurately describe “Trillium?” It’s a beautiful sci-fi, time travel, reality bending epic that stretches what can be done with comics. Two journeys taking place at once.

WELCOME TO TRANQUILITY volume 1

Best Comics You’ve Never Heard Of:  Welcome to Tranquility v.1 Writer: Gail Simone Art: Neil Googe If you haven’t noticed by now, the name Gail Simone is synonymous with high art and quality comics.

Archer and Armstrong v.1: The Michelangelo Code Writer: Fred Van Lente Penciler: Clayton Henry Colorist: Matt Milla Letterer: Dave Lanphear Cover Artist: Arturo Lozzi, Patrick Zircher “Archer and Armstrong” has one of the best, most underrated writers in comics, a fan favorite artist, and some of the strongest reviews from the past two years. I’ve been dying to read the much ballyhooed revamp of the Valiant Comics classic and am quite glad I did. Obadiah Archer has been training his entire life for a mission from the Lord. His father, a Minister, and mother, a Congresswoman, have spent his 18 years of life readying him for destroying “He...

X-MEN Go Solo! Sep04

X-MEN Go Solo!

X-Men go solo! Recently, there’s been an influx of solo X-Men titles. Most of whom have never had an ongoing series before. Now we’re going to see if they truly deserve their own books. Cyclops- Cyclops not getting his own series before isn’t a surprise. Frankly, until a few years ago he hasn’t been interesting. It wasn’t until he stepped up as the Mutant Leader he deserved to be that anyone really cared about him. Ironically, this series isn’t even about that Cyclops. A little while ago the original X-Men (the 60’s versions) were pulled into modern times. This book is about a teen Cyclops traveling space with his...
