  • FF 16 & Forever Event Review

    Hey look, Spider-Man has an actual line of dialogue here. What’s that? A second line? A relevant plot point? This is madness. Anyone who read my FF 14 review knows what it is, but let’s pretend my reviews don’t bring hundreds of visitors to the site and finish this event. FF…

  • Ultimate Spider-Man #8 – Review

    I will take an L, Pat! Seriously, I could use a new L for my laptop. It’s been broken since, like, the first month I bought it many years ago, and it’s finally broken off completely. I don’t use this laptop for any other reason besides writing, so it’s…

  • Secret Avengers #23 Review

    Wazzup!  Oh, what?  Were you expecting someone else?  Someone… “crazy” perhaps?  Well, tough.  The only crazy you’ll get today is your old pal Two-Bit.  But if you recall the review for Venom #14, at the end of that issue, Flash Thompson/Venom is accepted into the Secret Avengers, and writer…

  • New Amazing Posters

    Trends International a poster company got trigger happy and has released some images from the Amazing Spider-Man movie. This is the first good close up look at the Lizard we’ve had. There is also a 3D Spidey poster that looks cool! CLick on the link to see more.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man #682 Review

    The time has finally arrived for Doctor Octopus to enact his master plan for world domination before he dies! With the majority of the Marvel Universe conveniently off planet, and the Avengers considering submitting to the mad doctor like the punks they are, can the Amazing Spider-Man hope to…

  • Amazing Spider-Man #682 Review

    And here we go–it’s time for Ends of the Earth. I have a feeling this story is going to be a particularly important part of Slott’s run, and this is going to be a long review. My head is racing with thoughts on this story, where it could be…

  • Avengers #24 Review

    The moment has finally come.  For six tedious months, we’ve seen Norman Osborn’s final play against the Avengers.  How does it all go down?  Read on to find out.

  • Avengers #23 Review

    Fatigue is kicking in, y’all.  Trying to come up with witty things to say in this space is surprisingly hard.  Like, after seeing this issue’s cover, I thought about asking who’s excited about the Avengers movie in May (Avengers Assemble for you U.K. readers—do I have any U.K. readers?),…

  • Daily Bugle is a News Network?

    I’m wondering if the Daily Bugle will be a television station in the new movie as opposed to a daily newspaper? Check out this CNN looking video and they even have a TV live truck.

    Here’s an update on Spidey Daily strip. I won’t be carrying the images of the strip here, however I will continue to link to the Tulsa World website that hosts it. In order to post the images free I would of had to post a link to the Daily…

  • Scarlet Spider #3 Review

    One of the things that I like about Spider-Man and comics in general is that things can get you talking. It’s always good to have a dialogue about things inside a comic, especially if you disagree with the premise. This issue has one of those instances, and I will…

  • Fantastic Four #604: Forever Conclusion

     This right here? This is why I read comics. This review went through several drafts on paper, over seven hours of revising, because I wanted to do this issue honour by my review, so please read.  Fantastic Four: Forever Conclusion Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Steve Epting Ink: Rick Maygar Colour: Paul…

  • Carnage USA #4 Review

     Once again I was teased with Symbiotic Zoo Animals and no delivery. It seems very unlikely we’ll get them in the final issue, but did the rest of this issue deliver?  Carnage USA #4: Oh Say Can You Scream Writer: Zeb Wells Artist: Clayton Crain Letter: Clayton Cowles Editors:…
