Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City

Midnight_Over_Stellar_City_Featured

I’ve noticed that the Big B blog doesn’t cover as many cat related books as I would like so I figured I’d do my part to add more into the [meow] mix. Bad puns aside let’s talk about Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City! Midnight is a spinoff based on the character from the pages of Hero Cats Over Stellar City, which just released its tenth issue so look forward … Read More →

10 Issues In: Batman Beyond

Batman_Beyond_1_Cover

Has it really been 2 months since my last post? Yikes. I’d totally be fired if the folks at Big B Comics weren’t so awesome. Anyways, they keep giving me a platform so I’m going to continue talking out of turn, even when you whine and groan (yes I know you’re doing it right now!). As usual this post will contain some minor spoilers (we are, after all, going through … Read More →

10 Issues In: Batman and Robin Eternal

Batman_And_Robin_Eternal_Featured

Hey folks, I realize this is a little late seeing as though issue #13 just came out as of this writing but the holidays have been happening. So without further ado let’s look at the first ten issues of Batman and Robin Eternal…wait! There will be some minor spoilers here not only regarding this series but series that the lead characters feature in as well like Batman, Grayson, and Batman … Read More →

Batman/TMNT #1

Batman_TMNT_Cover

I’d like to start off this post by apologizing for my lack of content recently but alas life is constantly changing and with that comes the realization that I must change with it. I’m not getting at a point where I stop reading comics, au contraire, these stories and this community is one of my constant highlights so afraid to say I’m not going anywhere anytime soon. Let’s just hope … Read More →

Howard The Human #1

Howard_The_Human_Featured

Howard the Human is a one-shot that crosses over with Secret Wars but not really. Essentially we are lead to believe this is a part of Battleworld where it’s “Bizzaro” Howard The duck, with the hook being that rather than being a duck in a human world, he’s a human in a world full of animals! The book is written by Skottie Young best known for his “little” drawings but … Read More →

But fear not lovely readers, I promise you that this column has not and will never be forgotten! This column goes out to childish adults everywhere, now let’s talk Turtles. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Amazing Adventures is the spiritual successor to the previously concluded … Read More →

10 Issues In: Grayson

Grayson_Featured

It’s finally come! DC Comics’ Grayson by Tim Seeley, Tom King (writers) and Mikel Janin (artist) has hit ten issues so I’m able to do another write-up on this great series. I basically look for any reason to talk about this series since, outside of the flagship Batman title, this has become my favourite series DC is pumping out. As always this article may contain some spoilers, specifically in regards … Read More →

We Stand On Guard

We_Stand_On_Guard_Featured

When I say the name “Brian K. Vaughan” I’m sure a laundry list of comics come to mind that he’s worked on, such as Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Runaways and a little known indie book called Saga. Perhaps a friend of a friend might have read it. In any event, Brian has added on to his current title work with We Stand On Guard, a new ongoing series from Image Comics … Read More →

10 Issues In: The New Suicide Squad

New_Suicide_Squad_Featured

Well it’s been a while but I finally hit a series’ tenth issue. I originally decided to do these segments at ten issues since at that point enough issues have passed to fully judge a book fairly.  However, looking back at my previous articles I see that in most cases I gush over the book since usually, if it’s not up to snuff, I’ve dropped it well before issue #10 … Read More →

Justice League of America #1

Justice_League_of_America_Featured

A lot has been made about the new “DC YOU” brand, replacing the New 52. DC Comics are still building series out of that New 52 universe but they claim to not be following any kind of continuity between books which was a hardline for their New 52 initiative. That much is clear within the opening pages of Justice League of America #1 by writer/artist Bryan Hitch. The opening shows … Read More →

NFCC_Manapul_Hester_Paquette_Talk_Copyrights_DC_And_Much_Alan_Moore

The panel opened with only Francis ready to go so he started on how he broke into the industry. He said he’d make copies of his work and take it to all the cons and would show everybody who would look in hopes someone would give him work he went into detail about his very specific sample shots he’d use which showed real people, action shots and told a story.
