Have you been reading the regular Infinity reviews over the last few months by Biff Bam Pop’s own Glenn Walker? You know, Infinity. Infinity? The B-I-G Marvel Comics event that just wrapped up last week with the final issue in the “mini-series”? (I use quotes because beyond the sic=x main Infinity books, there were tie-in books that brought the total chapter count to well over twenty.) Jeez, where have you been? Well, get caught up on the latest (and last) Infinity review by our pal Glenn, right here.
Now, I loved Infinity. To me, it ranks up there as one of the greatest event comics I’ve ever read. For those asking, DC’s 1985 series, Crisis On Infinite Earths is still the greatest of the great but Infinity ranks a solid second.
Still, Infinity ended the same way all of these recent “event” series seem to end: with a continuation into yet another “event” series! Oh, the Inhumanity!
Hello my little vamps! I hope you had a chance to read Biff Bam Pop’s very own Glenn Walker‘s take on “Dracula,” if not, please do. Well… last week’s episode was somewhat interesting. Mina dumped Harker, the Victorian male chauvinist. Dracula eliminated his enemies, but not fast enough to keep me interested. Ninja Lady Jayne has seers with a magic mirror. I really want this show to succeed, especially since it follows “Grimm,” but so far… I’ve been a bit disappointed in the weak scripts. I’m hoping this show finds its mojo and kicks up the level of horror. This is a vampire story after all, right? Will Dracula kick butt tonight? Find out after the jump Read the rest of this entry
It’s no secret that I’ve been a fan of Marvel Comics’ current event series, Infinity. A big fan. Jonathan Hickman’s giant-sized sci-fi opera, cock full of characters, good and bad, new and old? Yeah, I love it!
If you haven’t been reading it thus far, Glenn Walker has been regularly writing a review column on the mini-series, the latest of which can be found right here. It’s required reading.
But like all tent-pole event series fro the big two publishers, Marvel and DC, Infinity has some spin-off and tie-in titles. Today’s release of Infinity: The Hunt is one of them. And it, too, should be a great read. Here’s why:
This edition of the Popcast also features American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1980s, written by Keith Dallas and published by our pals at TwoMorrows Publishing. If you’re a fan of comic book history, you must absolutely purchase this title. It’s simply spectacular. You can order it here.
Enjoy the Popcast, and enjoy SDCC 2013!
You couldn’t escape it the past month, could you? Like gravity, you couldn’t help but allow it to influence your life, be it in newspaper reviews, bus shelter advertisements, television commercials, internet appraisals, packaged toys on a Walmart shelf, or the ubiquitous movie theatre posters.
Man of Steel, the movie, was everywhere. And everyone had an opinion on it.
For some, it might have been enough promotion to drive them off-planet. Others soaked it up like bright rays of light from our yellow sun. And, like the promotion, the movie itself polarized an audience into two distinct camps: those that really enjoyed it and those that downright hated it.
One common thread that both parties shared, however, was that, surprisingly, neither really asked to see it.
It’s a brand new Biff Bam Popcast, featuring Glenn Walker, JP Fallavollita, Jason Shayer, Andy Burns and very special guest panelist, writer Michael Moreci (Hoax Hunters, Mini Comics Included, ReincarNATE). In this spoiler filled episode, we take on Man Of Steel and discuss what we thought did and didn’t work, creative choices and much more.
We also celebrate the 71st birthday of Sir Paul McCartney, who recently had his classic live album Wings Over America reissued by Universal Music Canada in a variety of formats. We highlight the limited edition, multi-disc box set that is absolutely gorgeous. If you like what you see, you can order the box set here, or grab the 2 cd remastered original album here. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
Enjoy the pop cast!
Spoiler alert! The latest and greatest Biff Bam Popcast is up. In this edition, Glenn Walker, JP Fallavollita, Emily McGuiness, Jason Shayer and Andy Burns talk Star Trek Into Darkness, what we liked (lots), what we didn’t (more than we thought) and much more.
As well, we take a look at the gorgeous new IDW hardcover, Star Trek: The John Byrne Collection. As mentioned in the popcast, IDW continue to knock it out of the park with their licensed properties and this book is no exception. Take a look inside during the popcast and then order your own copy here.
The panel, this week featuring Glenn Walker, Jason Shayer, Andy Burns and first-timer Marie Gilbert, give their thoughts on Iron Man 3. Be warned – massive spoilers!
