Genzoman: A Modern-Day Frazetta?

It may seem way too bold to say that Gonzalo Ordóñez “Genzoman” Arias is a modern-day Frank Frazetta, but there are many overlaps. Though they have differing art styles, both of these creators depict over-the-top fantasy images that […]

And this isn't even the biggest fight in this issue!

Fear Trumps Resolve in ‘Injustice: Year Two’ Chapter 22

As you know, we’re avowed fans of Injustice: Gods Among Us. This series is so good we wouldn’t be surprised if it eventually got incorporated into the multiverse of continuities that DC Comics is currently mapping. But […]

No no no, "Darkseid is." "Is Brainiac" is way too derivative to catch on.

You Can Run from the Past but Not ‘Future’s End’ #18

Happy birthday, Jack Kirby! Remember that time the King took over at DC and his first act was to build a ramp specifically to nail Superman in the crotch? Those were good times.

The London bar scene is a bit stifling.

Hear ye, hear ye! Time for another round-up of reviews! We’ve got some mainstream, some indie, some old, some new, all of them worthy of the Man Cave once over. So let the recommendations, commendations, and […]

Old-school Superman let you know real fast whose town you were in.

The Lamest Copies of ‘Action Comics’ #1

For three-quarters of a century nothing has lived up to its name as hard as Action Comics #1. And you know that’s true because on Sunday it once again set the record for the highest […]

What are the odds that blood stain on her leg would be the exact size and shape as the one on her leg but flipped upside down? Come on, we believe that a man can fly, but that defies probability.

Skate and/or Die in ‘Harley Quinn’ #10!

Highfather knows we love us some Harley Quinn round the Man Cave — she’s the Joker if instead of being a total creep he were a fun-loving, surprisingly sensitive gal. There’s nothing worse than a comedian […]

We see you have constructed a new line of comics.

‘Star Wars’ Editor Jordan D. White

The ’10s have been a big decade for Star Wars. After being sold to Disney, George Lucas’s cinematic epic finds itself remobilized in a big way, with films spated to hit as heavy and hard as […]

Well, we figured out how we want to die.

Death Becomes Her in ‘Red Hood and the Outlaws’ #34

Red Hood and the Outlaws has never suffered a lack of quality artists but this issue is downright resplendent in its pulchritude. Every component of the art: layout, linework, figurework, shading…the inks, the colors…DC should stick […]

"Ah, y'know, right now they're standing around in an orderly fashion not hurting anybody...I say we let this one play itself out as-is."

The Shape of Things Changes in ‘Green Lantern Corps’ #34

Not to armchair space-patrol, but the Green Lanterns are letting the Durlans run rings around them (nobody’s ever going to believe that pun was unintentional). The shadowy cabal of shape-shifting conspirators has been putting the Corps in […]
