The New 52: Throne of Atlantis
The New 52 comic book line by DC comics was more or less a mixed bag for me. I do think that Marvel’s “MARVEL NOW!“ line was much more ambitious and innovative. Granted, I did not collect …
Age of Ultron- Book One (2013)
“Ultron Unlimited” was one tremendously powerful Avengers story arc that I wondered just how Marvel writers would be able to top such an epic. Ultron had returned since then with somewhat …

Scarlet: Issue # 6
I had wondered as to what had caused the delay of this comic series that it took writer Brian Michael Bendis and illustrator Alex Maleev a year to follow up on Scarlet # 5 and finally release the sixth …
Avengers Assemble Annual- # 1 (2013 Edition)
Since the events of “Avengers Disassembled”, Marvel comics fans have not seen much of everyone’s favorite Synthezoid, the Vision. Often called as one of the most powerful beings in the …
Avengers Assemble- Vol. One
The Avengers movie was arguably the most successful "super-hero" movie to date. It was raw entertainment and quite a joy to watch. Granted it was a little watered-down compared to …
Superman: Earth One- Volume 2
Admittedly, while I liked J. Michael Straczynski’s “Superman: Earth One”, because it came the guy with the big red ‘S’ a different kind of tempo; a meaner, darker, and grittier …
Avengers: X-Sanction (Comic Book)
With the conclusion of Marvel’s comic event of the year “Avengers Vs. X-Men” (which I will review as soon as the last issue ships) nearing, I thought that it may be a good idea to review …
Batman Vengeance of Bane
With the popularity of Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” these days, I am sure there are those who were wondering just who Bane was and how he came to be in the comic books. …
Batman: Earth One
“Re-imaginings” is a word that Hollywood uses rather loosely; the recent film “The Amazing Spider-Man” is one proof that such things are more misses than hits. Can the same be …
Fantastic Four # 600: 50th Anniversary Issue
Deaths in the comic book medium have more or less been utilized to generate more sales. It is a mere marketing ploy these days; since with most of them, it seems like the ‘dead’ character …
reviewed Orchid, Issue #1. November 10, 2011
Orchid, Issue #1
Much as the majority of my vast comic collection comprised of Marvel, DC, Aspen and Top Cow (Image) comics, I do try to expand on several other titles from Dark Horse and even Dynamite entertainment. …
Fear Itself
Honestly, I’ve never been much for inter-company crossovers. I feel that comic book publishers have just made this a cheap way to avoid coming up with creative stories and merely uses these gimmicks …
The Mighty Thor: The Galactus Seed
After the comic book title “Thor” had been re-titled into “Journey Into Mystery” (focusing on the young reborn Loki) once again, and during the release of “Fear itself”, …
Kick Ass 2: # 1 and 2
“Kick Ass” was one of those comic mini-series that proved so innovative and bold that I knew it was only a matter of time before Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. “Kicked Out” its …
The Collected Strangers in Paradise, Volume One
Woopak is reviewing a romance comic?! Unbelievable. But remember, I may not see ‘romance’ in the same definition as most people do. I see “Kill Bill” as one of the most romantic …
Samurai's Blood, Issue #1
I have to say, I am always hesitant whenever I see a comic that has samurai themes written by American writers, since I have read some of the best manga (Japanese comic book) that goes into the genre. …
Thor Wolves of the North (one-shot comic)
Remember in the early days of Thor comics when “Tales of Asgard” meant an outing of fantasy based on Norse mythology and storybooks? Well, they all kept true to their target audience which …

Avengers Prime
After the events of the “Siege”, which showcased the attack of the madman Norman Osborn with his force of “Dark Avengers” and H.A.M.M.E.R. upon Asgard, home of the Norse gods …
Action Comics 454: Superman's Energy Crisis
Every now and then I go through my collection to see some issues that just make me dumbfounded as to why I would own such an issue. I know that I began as a DC nut when I was a kid in the 70’s until …
Caligula (2011 Comic Book)
Let’s get one thing straight; once you see the title on this new comic series by horror writer David Lapham with art by German Nobile you should know right away that “Caligula” is not …
Daredevil: Reborn
Successively, Brian Michael Bendis and Ed Brubaker’s run in “Daredevil” were two of the most epic and definitely one of the best storylines I’ve read that got into the mythos of …
Cowboys and Aliens (Graphic Novel, 2006)
I know there has been a lot of ‘hype’ surrounding the upcoming film “Cowboys and Aliens” so I figured perhaps it is time for me to review the actual graphic novel written by Fred …

Scarlet, Issue #5
After reading the first four issues of “Scarlet”, one can expect to be in for the long haul. (see my reviews for issue one, two, three and four by clicking on the links) The series’ …
Chew: Taster's Choice (Volume One)
Admittedly, besides movies, I have a passion for comic books and graphic novels. It has been a strong part of my childhood and I think I have comic book love written all over my DNA. It has become very …

reviewed Superman: EARTH ONE. December 13, 2010
Superman: Earth One
Superman reboots and re-tellings. God, seems like DC just keeps on going on and on with this as they find reason after reason (Zero Hour, Crisis, Elseworlds etc.) to do this. After John Byrne’s …
reviewed Superman: Day of Doom. October 29, 2010
SUPERMAN: DAY OF DOOM
Back in 1992 (or was it 1993?), DC published the “Death of Superman” story arc in an attempt to generate more sales for the man of steel. It was a great gimmick that did generate huge sales …
METABARONS # 1: Othon & Honorata
Every now and then I would pick up something different when I go to the comic book store and with the recommendation of one of the employees who worked in the comic book shop I frequent, I came across …
Thor: For Asgard Issue # 1(2010)
With the new “Thor” live-action movie looming in the horizon, you can bet that Disney (ahem) Marvel would do whatever it took to promote Marvel’s favorite mythological Norse God. Well, …

IDENTITY CRISIS
   Back in 2004, DC Comics came out with a 7-issue mini-series that they promoted as the “comic event of the year”. I know from experience that claims of this kind often …
