Men Of Valour

The crowd was large, but it didn’t stop me getting to the front. (The thing I’ve noticed about this generation is your obligation to step aside for anyone who looks over the age of 60. We’re not all three steps away from a heart-attack I’m pleased to inform you) I shuffled in between a young lady with spiky blonde hair and a man holding a little girl high on his shoulders.

Red Hood And The Outlaws 7 Review

Today’s review is on Red Hood And The Outlaws 7, written by Scott Lobdell and drawn by Mirko Colak. This month’s issue has a slower pace than the Black Mask arc, with the story concentrating on the relationship between Jason Todd and Bizarro. I’ll start by saying I love the cover because it has an Of Mice And Men quality to it, which is a strong influence in the comic.

The Pop Culture Playlist: Iron Man

Homeofcomics has put a request in for The Pop Culture Playlist, and I’m happy to oblige by putting together music for Iron Man. Tony Stark is a genius, who’s done a lot to help the world with his inventions. He’s also egotistical, has messed up spectacularly and used to be an alcoholic. There’s plenty of material to cover in the epic story of Iron Man.

Justice League Dark Review

DC has a reputation for producing high-quality animated films, from Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, to Justice League: War. A lot of their success is placed on the shoulders of Batman, with him being a central character in many animated films, to the point he eclipses other characters. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case with DC’s latest movie, Justice League Dark, which focuses on magical heroes like John Constantine, Zatanna and Etrigan.

Real Neat Blog Award!

It still surprises me that I’ve been here for only a short amount of time and I can be nominated for awards so quickly. All I can say is thank you to Zezee With Books, who’s nominated me for the Real Neat Blog Award. I’ve enjoyed interacting with her over the last month or so. I’ve been able to introduce her to a few comic characters she’s never heard of and I’ve been able to discover a few news books from reading her posts.
