State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition

Did you ever play the survival horror game, State of Decay from Undead Labs? Well if you missed it you’re in luck because it’s on its way to the X-Box One in the form of…

Review: Katusha Vol. 1 & 2

Review: Katusha Vol. 1 & 2 via reviewer @EnterTheHero — @gdc_comics

War isn’t a new subject in comic books and really it’s one of the oldest themes for the medium. Katusha takes a look at the Ukrainian and Russian side of World War II. Maybe it’s because of what’s going on in the Ukraine and Russia’s presence/interference over there, but I found Katusha very interesting. It’s not quite history repeating itself, but it does illustrate the long-standing differences…

Review: The Mice Templar #9-13

Review: The Mice Templar #9-13 via reviewer @EnterTheHero — @BJLG @polarcomic @ImageComics

Let me tell you it’s been a long time since I’ve read The Mice Templar. I actually remember checking out the book shortly after Mouse Guard made its debut. I have no idea which came first, the chicken or the egg and so I’m not going to argue and debate that. Frankly both series couldn’t be more different from each other and both are enjoyable for completely different reasons.

In a rare move I’m…

Review: The War at Ellsmere

Review: The War at Ellsmere via reviewer @EnterTheHero — @faitherinhicks @SLGPublishing

Originally I wasn’t going to review The War at Ellsmere; it was to be a book that I simply read for pleasure. The problem is that I just like Faith Erin Hicks’ storytelling far too much not to talk about it and what I found really impressive was that this was some of her early work. I know that she’s grown as a creator since this, but that didn’t change the fact that it’s an impressive and…

Review: Bravest Warriors #23

Review: Bravest Warriors #23 via reviewer @TheAbominableDr @BoomStudios

There are comics that I review that I love, and there are comics that I review that I hate. And then, in the Bravest Warriors pile, there are comics I review that leave me simply mystified.

This issue is somewhere in the middle of a multi-part storyline, which I just jumped into last issue and it was not particularly new-reader-friendly. Perhaps in the spirit of that, neither is this one, but I’m…

Review: Shinobi: Ninja Princess #1

Review: Shinobi: Ninja Princess #1 via reviewer @EnterTheHero — @MartheusAW @ActionLab

Who doesn’t like ninjas? They make great bad guys, but also great good guys. They can be funny or deadly series and everything in-between. There are probably one of the most diverse character types in all of the entertainment medium. Think about it, Nazis are always the bad guys. Pirates can kind of swing both ways, but for the most part they’re bad guys and limited to their era. Cowboys? Limited…

Review: Talent – Deluxe Edition

Review: Talent – Deluxe Edition via reviewer @EnterTheHero — @ChristophGolden @TomSniegoski @paulazaceta @boomstudios

I’m actually pretty excited to be reviewing Talent. Its original release was actually the first comic book from BOOM! Studios that I ever read from the publisher. That’s right ladies and gentlemen; Talent was my gateway book into the world of BOOM!

Since I wasn’t writing reviews at the time all I could do was recommend the hell out of this series. To this day it’s very high on my list of books…

I told you guys to expect a post from me that was completely cosplay based.

Some of this stuff is top-notch. I’ve compiled a list of the best costumes that I encountered during my stint at Wizard World Chicago. So I guess you’re wondering why you’re still reading.

Aaaaaaaaaand go!

And there you have it, folks. You missed quite a bit, I’m hoping that you’ll wise up and come see us in Columbus for Wizard World Ohio in October.

And don’t forget, the interview with Neal Adams is forthcoming. Stay tuned!

Do Want: Slimer Headpeice Mask Thingy
Is that not the creepiest yet awesomest thing ever? EVER!?! I don’t know why you’d buy this or where you’d wear it unless you wanted to make a shitty Halloween costume by dressing in all black or as a slime trail…

Wesley Snipes Supposedly Signed On For Fourth Blade Film

Wesley Snipes Supposedly Signed On For Fourth Blade Film

Well this all sounds like horse shit.

Wesley Snipes told MTV that he’d be interested and willing to do a fourth Blade film. The problem? Marvel has the rights to the film now.

The New York Daily News seemingly pulled out of thin air that Snipes has already signed on for the film and will make 3 million and a cut of the back-end on the film.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but has Marvel ever…

Over on Kotobukiya’s Facebook page they finally revealed the Juri Bishoujo statue that they teased months ago. It’s pretty cool as most of their statues are. There’s no price for it yet (I’m sure there’s a range all their Bishoujo statues fall into though) but they did reveal that it’ll be available in April of next year.
