    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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
  • 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

  • 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


  • It’s hard when you’re a fan, going to watch a major movie blockbuster of one of the most iconic storylines of quite possibly your favourite franchise of all time. If you like it too much, you’re clouded by bias, and then if you’re too critical, you just come off as assholish and can’t accept that different mediums will always be different in storytelling. Thankfully after watching X-Men: Days of Future Past, I am not the latter of fans but fall
  • Post Calgary Expo is such a strange feeling; gone is the weekend of readjusting spandex, lugging around a backpack full of snacks and vitamin water, while preciously balancing an armful of gorgeous prints in arm. Now that I’ve had a couple of days to muse over my weekend, this’ll be a summary of events in retrospect—probably a little more critical as I am wont to do, but trust me, there was a lot of elation as the weekend occurred and the Expo truly gets better with each passing year as I learn new tricks to enjoy myself more.
     
    The first noticeable
  • Parker gets bit by a spider. Parker gets bit by a spider. Parker gets bit by a spider. In Spider-man's origin, Parker always gets bit by some bloody radioactive spider.  Then the spider dies.  This origin has been retold and made modern a bunch of times.  Little things change here and there but a few things are constant.  

     

    There’s always a radioactive spider. Sometimes where the spider originated from is made clear, sometimes it isn't.  Another constant is Parker.  He’s always there. With glasses on, without glasses on.
