Young Justice - "Failsafe" Recap

During an alien invasion, the team faces the ultimate challenge when they are forced to replace the fallen Justice League! Young Justice is still a relatively young series, but I’ll venture to predict that “Failsafe” will ultimately go down as its most divisive episode. The opening act is certainly an effective hook; in a very […]

Hellboy: House Of The Living Dead Hardcover Graphic Novel Review

I’m a huge fan of Hellboy. The weird mix of horror, science fiction and action, combined with a deep mythology that is altogether a homage to many other works, but still manages to feel fresh, makes for one great comic series. Hellboy is like a Wolverine that I’ve never gotten tired of. He’s gruff, tough […]

Dark Horse Comics: Orchid #1 Review

Set in a dystopian future, Tom Morello’s Orchid aspires to tell a story on the epic scale of Lord of the Rings, injected with a class consciousness.

Fate/Zero - "Scream of a Mad Beast" - Episode 5 Recap

When Rider enters the battlefield, rather than fight he asks Lancer and Saber whether or not they’d be interested in forming an alliance with him and conquering the world. The two immediately shoot down his offer and question what kind of idiot would ask something so insulting. Rider of course means no harm; he just […]

Last Exile: Fam, The Silver Wing - "Light Square" Recap

Ah, now that’s more like it. As if on cue “Light Square” takes this series in a direction I’d hoped it would go, altering course to get away from the relentless barrage of one event after another and into the business of telling a story. After we witness the close of a battle meant to […]
