Champions #13 Review: Broken Buildings And Bad Dads

Not too long ago, Marvel announced that we’d be getting yet another crossover — this time featuring the Avengers and the Champions. It was billed as a “cataclysmic clash” between the older generation, the new, and a world shaking super villain. The covers seemed to bleed contention, spelling trouble for our young cast. Well, we […]

Avengers #11 Review: A Lacking Story With Unfitting Art

I am a big Avengers guy. I have been ever since I started reading comics. My first readings of the team were the Marvel Masterworks collection of the first volume of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Avengers. From there, I read the Marvel Adventures Avengers book (I was young, remember), and, some time after that, […]

What Jack Kirby Means To A Comic Fan, Critic, And Aspiring Creator

On August 28th, 1917, Jacob Kurtzberg was born in Manhattan. He was born to a pair of Austrian Jewish immigrants. He took to drawing quickly, starting in comic strips in 1936, and, in 1940, he teamed up with Joe Simon to create Captain America and Bucky Barnes. It’s weird to think that a man born […]

Secret Empire #5 Review – Just Not Good Super Hero Fiction

Now, even though I am Bleeding Cool’s “Secret Empire is actually pretty good” guy, doesn’t mean I think the series is perfect. It has its flaws, and one of my first two articles for BC was my review of #2, which was a comic that could basically be summed up with “Hey, don’t forget to […]

Secret Empire: Underground #1 Review- A Great Self-Contained Adventure

*Ties into the Secret Empire crossover Another Secret Empire tie-in, yay! I know that’s what you all were waiting for. I was actually kind of looking forward to Secret Empire: Underground #1. It has a lot of characters I genuinely like in it: Mockingbird, Hercules, Sam Wilson, and Ant-Man. Quicksilver is really cool too, though […]

A 45-Year Old Barry Windsor Smith Avengers Page Up For Auction

If you collect original comic art, it’s easy to get lost on pages like Heritage looking at all the amazing pieces. I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I own a few pieces and after seeing the R. Crumb piece going for $717,000.00, I got wrapped up in looking at art […]

Monsters Unleashed on Avengers Academy

  Marvel continues to push Monsters Unleashed, as we come to the tail end of the event comics, have announced an ongoing following it, and now the event is the focus of the mobile game Avengers Academy. Which is impressive for Avengers Academy itself too. The game is really giving Marvel Comics a run for […]

Comic Books – Immigrants Are Welcome Here

Writer Greg Pak has raised an excellent point on twitter in response to the #MuslimBan, the controversial Executive Order from President Donald Trump that bans immigration from seven countries of largely Muslim population. The ban is affecting refugees from war-torn regions, ideological or social refugees who would face recriminations and death in some cases for […]
