Daredevil (Two-Disc Widescreen Edition) (2003)
This well-cast movie packs a lot of story into one film. I remember growing up that Daredevil was always different than other comics after all what other hero was sightless? Also, the artwork of Gene …
reviewed Watchmen (graphic novel). January 28, 2004
Most simply stated, WATCHMEN was the graphic novel that totally changed the comic book industry. The book is a deconstruction of comics. The book also forces a person to challenge the way they view life …

Road to Perdition
Before seeing this film for the first time, I already knew that Tom Hanks plays a hit man for the mob. Tom Hanks? As I then viewed the film, I assumed that Hanks accepted the role because he liked the …

DVD front
BLADE II is a far superior film from BLADE in just about every element: the acting, directing, writing, effects, music, lighting, sound, plot, believability are all better in this sequel than the original. …

Road to Perdition
For some reason I was really looking forward to "Road to Perdition." Perhaps it was because I liked Sam Mendes' first film, "American Beauty," so much. Or maybe it was the fact that Thomas Newman, one …

I've never read any of the "Blade" comics, so I'm reviewing this film with absolutely nothing in print to compare it to. This is a solid action film that raises the bar for other comic hero movies. Snipes …

Daredevil (Two-Disc Widescreen Edition) (2003)
"Daredevil" has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters. It truly was a surprise to me when I first learned that a film was actually going to be made about him. He teamed up with Lou Ferrigno's …
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume One
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is an utterly delightful book. In it, writer Alan Moore assembles a superhero team of a completely different sort, drawing on British literary figures of the late …

Daredevil (Two-Disc Widescreen Edition) (2003)
An awful lot of people spit blood. Even the hero wrenches a bloody loose tooth from his mouth after one bout of fisticuffs. Daredevil is an orthodontist's dream.     But for fans of …

Black Orchid
About the same time that Neil Gaiman took a little-known hero called the Sandman and created the rich mythology of Dream and the Endless, he reinvented another obscure character, Black Orchid, a plant-based …

Batman: War on Crime
It's always nice to see the comics industry providing books which vary from the usual formula: quipping spandex-clad hero pummeling outrageously garbed and gimmicky villains into submission. The story …

Pros: HULK MAD!!! Finally, a superhero we can all relate to!     Cons: Human issues slow down the movie at certain points     The Bottom Line: Baron not mad. But …
Stardust (novel)
"Stardust" won the Mythpoeic Award for best adult fairy tale. After all, fairy tales are not just for kids. And they're not for wimpy adults, either. Just read "The Hard Facts of the Grimms' Fairy Tales" …
Lone Wolf and Cub, Vol. 1: Assassin's Road
There is very little to add to all the great and well deserved complements that this series has earned however I neglected to purchase this copy (starting at issue 13) because I have the entire Dark Horse …

Road to Perdition
Even though the art seems simplistic and derivitive at times and the story perhaps somewhat cliched, when one actually takes the time to read ROAD TO PERDITION it becomes abundantly clear how much a work …

Road to Perdition
Whether or not Tom Hanks and Paul Newman fall into the great actors category for their roles in this film seems irrelevant when measuring the film's overall ability to entertain. Sadly, this 30s period …

Road to Perdition
This movie has many, many great things to recommend it. The cinematography and art direction are first rate. The casting is very good, I think. Tom Hanks as an "enforcer" for the mob is not terribly hard …

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume One
For those who think that reading comic books are a waste of time and that graphic novels aren't anywhere near real literature, this is one comic you should check out and which maybe even change your mind. …

Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again
Unlike a fair number of people, I enjoyed Frank Miller's return to the world of his groundbreaking Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. It's not the same work, it's not even the same world, but Miller hasn't …

Black Orchid
I picked this up for three dollars at a remainder fair in Denver while I was there for Anaconism, and read it on the plane coming home. It was a whim purchase, based solely on my good impression of Gaiman …

Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker
When the Batman Beyond series first aired on the WB network, I thought it was a joke. Batman was such a cool show and figure, that I assumed they would ruin Batman's legacy by having a "new" Batman set …

Batman: A Death in the Family
A DEATH IN THE FAMILY is a decent story that follows the events that lead to the death of the 2nd Robin, Jason Tood; his death; and the immediate aftershocks. The story isn't too bad, but does contain …

After deconstructing Batman in THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS and changing the way comics are written in the process, Frank Miller tackled the history of Batman by examining Bruce Wayne's first year as Batman …

Batman: Year One, Part One
Another example of a great comic book that definately isn't for kids.After the success of DARK KNIGHT we saw the sequel BATMAN YEAR ONE. I remember this one flying off the shelves at the comic store when …

For those of us who have been collecting and reading comics for 30 years the significance of this graphic novel in the Comic Book Genre continues to grow. As a Batman story it is one of the better "alternate …
