'Amazing Spider-Man' #1 (802) is a Muddled Mess 'Amazing Spider-Man' #1 (802) is a Muddled Mess

Spider-Man is one of the greatest comic book heroes of all time. Lord knows he’s been through the wringer on countless occasions. This latest turn feels disjointed. Let’s look at why. [Spoilers below.]

On an Island Far, Far Away ... On an Island Far, Far Away ...

Amazon are taking pre-orders for the Star Wars Marvel UK Omnibus a massive 808-page hardcover volume that promises lots of goodies never seen in America. Now I am slightly confused, because while Empire Strikes Back Monthly included strips by Steve Moore, Alan Moore, Alan Davis and John Stokes I’m not sure that would…

Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! is a Goddamn Delight (Plus a Spelling Lesson) Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! is a Goddamn Delight (Plus a Spelling Lesson)

Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! is one of those books that you think is going to be too cutesy, but ends up actually being just the right about of cute and funny and awesome. It’s written by Kate Leth, with art by Brittney Williams (who also draws the amazing Goldie Vance comic).

Jennifer Walters is Re-Invented in HULK #1 Jennifer Walters is Re-Invented in HULK #1

 Writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Nico Leon have done something incredible with Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk. One of the strongest figures in the Marvel Universe sounds and reads like an entirely different character, now, following the events of Civil War II.

Mutants, Take Us Away Mutants, Take Us Away

It must be nerve-racking trying to make a movie about amazing phenomena these days when every month seems to bring the spectacle to end all spectacles. 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse is an adequate X-Men film. It retreads a lot of familiar territory and has some lousy dialogue but there’s nothing especially bad about it, it…

I Am Suddenly Incredibly Interested in Reading an Inhumans Comic I Am Suddenly Incredibly Interested in Reading an Inhumans Comic

As some of you may know, Marvel has been pushing the Inhumans comics for the past several years. They had some success with Ms. Marvel, but its connection to the larger Inhumans saga was tangential at best, and the main Inhumans books (Uncanny Inhumans and All-New Inhumans) have never enjoyed that much popularity or…

Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows is a Delightful Breath of Fresh Air Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows is a Delightful Breath of Fresh Air

Let’s face it: the real world, at the moment, kind of sucks. So we turn to fiction: Marvel is currently in the processing of relaunching books for Marvel NOW! in the wake of Civil War II (even though Civil War II is not, technically, over). One of those books is Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, written by Gerry…

Marvel Takes Another Step Forward With America by Gabby Rivera and Joe Quinones Marvel Takes Another Step Forward With America by Gabby Rivera and Joe Quinones

Over the years, Marvel has had its up and downs with making their comics more diverse and friendly to female, LGBT, and PoC communities. For every step forward (including a trans character in Angela: Asgard’s Assassin), there’s a step backward (Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso saying that Hercules was definitely not…

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Includes a Secret Trans Superhero The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Includes a Secret Trans Superhero

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl by Ryan North and Erica Henderson is delightful in not only the way it uses humor, but also the way it includes a diverse variety of characters — Doreen Green is, in fact, the only white person in her circle of friends. And now we can include a trans character as well....only they aren’t…

The Civil War II Tie-Ins Are Where the Real Stories Are The Civil War II Tie-Ins Are Where the Real Stories Are

Every comic book reader knows that crossovers can be a slog to get through. For one or more issues, your favorite comic has to tie into whatever big Event is going on. With the original Civil War, these tie-ins ranged from good to completely and utterly terrible (including Civil War: Front Line which introduced us to…

Why Sony Should Make a Spider-Woman Film Instead of Silver Sable Why Sony Should Make a Spider-Woman Film Instead of Silver Sable

So Sony recently revealed that they might be thinking of making a Silver Sable movie again. And I kind of get it: she’s a mercenary, sort of like Deadpool, and a spy, like Black Widow. But they are missing out on one character who would be great and who you could use in so many different ways: Jessica Drew, the…

The American Nightmare: The History of "Dark Captain America" The American Nightmare: The History of "Dark Captain America"

When Captain America Comics #1 was released in December of 1940, America had not yet entered World War II, but patriotism and jingoism were part of the zeitgeist of America. Cap wasn’t the first patriotic superhero — he was preceded by the Shield of MLJ Comics (who would later become Archie Comics) and Cap was similar…

One Jew's Opinion on the Ending of Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 One Jew's Opinion on the Ending of Captain America: Steve Rogers #1

When I was young, I knew my family was different. We didn’t celebrate Christmas, which was weird because everyone at school did. Instead, every November or December, we’d get out the menorah and light the candles. We weren’t very observant Jews, because we lit all the candles on the first day and then we’d trade gifts…
