Juice Squeezers: #1 of 4
Kids.  Like women, you can’t live with ‘em.  You can’t live without ‘em.  When I was a young’un, it was all I could do to keep myself interested.  I never …
Star Trek, Volume 1 (IDW Publishing)
Nothing says “I hate Star Trek fans” like handing over a comics book franchise to new Trek scribe Roberto Orci in any way, shape, or form.  In case you’re unaware, Orci is one of …

Bad Blood #1 (Dark Horse Comics)
I love monster stories.  Always have.  Always will.  For reasons I’ve never personally fathomed, vampire ones have always been a bit of a secret, guilty pleasure.  I couldn’t …

The Illegitimates #1

R.I.P.D. (2013 film)
R.I.P.D. didn't have a chance.  Based on a rather unknown comic with a premise that isn't too different from what were already popular movies in Ghostbusters and Men In Black and both of …

Star Trek #28
Minor history lesson, folks: STAR TREK technically began in 1966.  I say “technically” because those of us who’ve read extensively on it know that its characters and concepts began …

Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows #1
Most folks dismiss quite a bit of STAR WARS’ over-arching mythology because of one stylistic consideration: they see George Lucas’s albeit rich narrative as little more than a spruced-up …
reviewed DOC SAVAGE: THE MAN OF BRONZE #1. December 16, 2013
Full disclosure: I never ‘got’ the whole Doc Savage thing.  And, honestly, that’s always befuddled me a bit.  See, I’ve always been a HUGE fan of almost all things pulp, …

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
I penned an observation in an editorial piece just the other day: youthful audiences these days haven’t a clue how good they have it.  I said that trying to explain what my young life in front …

Itty Bitty Hellboy
Gotta admit: I much never cared for HELLBOY.  Don’t hate me.  As it is, I’ve been reading comics for over forty years, so something was bound just to not sit well with me.  …

Brain Boy (Part 1)
As a follower of all things occult in nature, I’ve always been intrigued by psychic powers.  Are they real?  Do they exist in our universe?  Where do they come from?  Can they …

Kiss Me Satan (Part 1)
Full disclosure: I absolutely love monster stories.  And, yes, my unrequited love for them will invariably cause me to give some products – be they books, comics, or films – a highly …

Baltimore: The Infernal Train (Part 1)
Vampires and their history occupy a special place in our civilization’s history: they’re a wonderfully romanticized monster.  Though there are many other things that go bump in the night, …

Like so many red-blooded fans of Conan, I originally came to know the tales of the Cimmerian in my youth – I was introduced to the tales written by Robert E. Howard in early high school when, of …

Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Lost Command

The Star Wars #1
Like so many who write, review, blog, and just generally participate in this zany, crazy thing called the World Wide Web today, I was there when STAR WARS opened theatrically back in 1977.  I saw …
