New Thunderbolts

Josh Talks ‘Thunderbolts’ Part 2: New Thunderbolts Vol. 1 – One Step Forward

After looking through the comments and past the people who took umbrage with the fact that I admitted my favorite comic books series wasn’t perfect, I got the feeling that many in the comments wanted me to talk about Fabian Nicieza, Kurt Busiek, and Tom Grummett’s New Thunderbolts series from 2004. That’s fine, because, when […]

Secret Empire: Brave New World #2 Review: Half A Good Book

As Bleeding Cool’s resident “Secret Empire is actually pretty good” guy and as someone who was looking forward to the debut of the new Patriot, Rayshaun Lucas, I felt that it was necessary to review this comic.

A Full Frontal Deadpool Review (Minor Spoilers)

Just come back from seeing Deadpool in Leicester Square. Man what a blast. They got the press in the right mind by offering shots served out of holsters of nubile young women with tied Deadpool T-shirts. Not much pansexuality in the promotions. Actually, that’s a point. Some folk really like to know specific details about […]

Deadpool Movie Spoilers – What About X-Men Origins: Wolverine Continuity?

I saw Deadpool earlier today. It was great. An only-a-little-bit-spoilery review of the movie is here. But I have been asked about any references made to the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie that also featured Ryan Reynolds, as a mouthy sword swinging military operative Wade Wilson who is transformed into a cross-mutant monstrosity. This continuity is completely ignored, […]

Deadpool Movie Spoilers – The Pansexuality Of Wade Wilson

I saw Deadpool earlier today. It was great. A low-spoiler review of the movie is here. But before going in, I was asked by some Bleeding Cool readers if I could be explicit about the pansexuality of Deadpool, a character whose sexual preferences on screen may make him the first lead LGBTQI superhero character, as […]

Deadpool Movie Spoilers – Is Hugh Jackman In It At All?

I saw Deadpool earlier today. It was great. A much less spoilery review of the movie is here. But one question I have been repeatedly asked is about whether or not Hugh Jackman, the actor who plays Wolverine, appears in the film. The answer is yes. Hugh Jackman does appear in Deadpool as Wolverine. But not […]
