So here it is, Think Alike Productions baby in all it's issue 2 glory.  The Agency #2 will be going live on Comixology tomorrow and it begs to entertain you.  Just click HERE for the Comixology page. Issue #1 did what an issue #1 was supposed to do.  A solid foundation was laid out, mysteries arose and we got a glimpse of the bait that was being hanged over our heads.  So in comes issue #2 and reinforced issue #1 with a lot of meaning and origin.  The damned thing also adds an aura of "I'm gonna make you question stuff and wonder now."  I can

Typically I review subject matter because it has impacted me in such a way, I feel compelled to write a review about it to expand upon my thoughts, as well as to give reason enough to someone to want to experience it for themselves; which is the case for my writing this review regarding “God is Dead,” by Jonathan Hickman. Now, before I formally start this off, let’s go ahead and clear the air: I love Jonathan Hickman, and I love his works. Avengers, New Avengers, Manhattan Projects, and East of West are probably the most prolific examples I’d use to recommend someone

Today I will be reviewing, briefly, Uncanny X-men # 2 and # 3. We will meet two villains, both of which you've probably heard of. We will see how the Vanisher got his start, and the first exploits of The Blob. Volume Two opens with the team rushing back to the Professor, who has mentally called for them. Beast goes up a wall and rides the top of a train. Angel flies low and literally picks up some lady fans. Jean becomes cross with lifts them onto a roof. That tires her and Angel flies her home. Scott and Bobby Stop and save some bricklayers and arrive late. The Professor briefs them

  So here is the first installment of my reading the entire run of Uncanny X-Men starting, yes, with Issue # 1 on Marvel Unlimited. Let's get right into it. The cover (show above) bills them as the strangest superheroes of all. The characters look dramatically different from what we are used to with modern incarnations. You might not even recognize the man hanging from the... the... bar thing. And here in Issue # 1 we're also introduced to Magneto in his red and purple garments. In this series, I will generally review them arc by arc instead of issue by issue. They are closer

Let me reinforce this, I am terrible at previewing books.  I spoil, I am a spoiler, a habitual line crossing spoiler.  I’ll try not to spoil this issue, but no promises will be made. The OSSM crew delivered another hit!  These guys have a run away success on their hands.   The book picks up right where issue one did.  Same pace, same level of energy, and enough “Holy crap” moments that’ll make you accidentally drop your copy!   The art’s skill is consistent with each and every page.  As a fan of the medium, I’m a

So the most unpronounceable weapon in the world will now be wielded by a female Thor.  Interestingly enough, the hammer reads “Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor”.     It’s clear that this isn't a spin off character or a side kick.  This is Thor, and she’s got boobs.     And that’s cool, and as long as the story pulls everything together neatly I’m all for this.  But this is where this gets me, how does Thor no longer deserve to wield that damn hammer no one can

Ronan the Accuser Portrayed By:  Lee Pace First Appearance:  Fantastic Four #65 Ronan is the law enforcement chief of the alien race of the Kree.  He is an interesting choice for antagonist in the Guardians of the Galaxy film as he has most recently been playing the part of a hero in the Marvel cosmic universe, fighting alongside our characters in such events as Annihilation, Annihlation:  Conquest, War of Kings and, most recently, Infinity.  His origins were on the antagonistic side, however, as he got his start when the Fantastic Four ran afoul of an ancient Kree

Hello readers of CTG! I’m going to try out a new monthly article highlighting some of the big releases from the current Previews magazine. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Previews it is a giant monthly publication which features every comic and tons of comic-related merchandise which will be sold in shops across the world 2 months in advance.   Each month I’ll flip through the giant publication and give you the run down on what I think will be the hottest titles and of course the stuff I’m looking forward to broken down by publisher. I’ll try to have a

There have been a number of iterations of the Guardians of the Galaxy over the years.  The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the team originally came together during the Marvel cosmic 2007/8 crossover “Annihilation:  Conquest,”  where they came together to aid the Kree when the Phalanx took control of their solar sector following the events of the “Annihilation” crossover.  This is meant to be a brief introduction to the world of the Guardians of the Galaxy, which characters we will see, some we might, and a quick summary of who they are

Happy Independence Day weekend, boys and girls!  Let’s put away those manga collections and those beautiful painted Moebius books and read something American for a change!  Let’s read something so ingrained with America and American culture it could only come from America itself! (Or the pages of Judge Dredd, but that’s another article for another writer.)  Let’s read a comic built on dread, paranoia, and fear.  Fear of an apocalyptic future and a negligent present.  Let’s read Scout, the story of an America on the brink of collapse and
