• My children are going to be raised by comic books.
    I don’t mean that in the Generation Y, absentee parent “raised by TV” sense. Nor do I mean it in the way I consider myself raised by comics. For me, comic books gave body to concepts I knew I wanted to be true. Nothing drove home what it meant to put the well-being of others before your own like Captain America diving in front of gunfire to shield a couple of kids in the Smithsonian in Mark Waid and Ron Garney’s Captain America vol. 3 #3, the first comic I ever read.
  • 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
  • God is Dead Chapter One ImageTypically 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

  • 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

    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
