Space Is The Place w. “Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #1” On The Wednesday Run

Hal Jordan Green Lantern Corps 1 coverI remember, a number of years ago, lying on a bed in a Chicago hotel room, just back from a long day at the Wizard World Convention, reading the first volume of the Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War hardcover compilation.

My buddy, Denny, was reading the same book, picked up earlier in the day at the con, in the bed next to me, while this website’s Editor-In-Chief, Andy Burns, sat at the corner table, wondering what the hell we were reading that could illicit so many “AW YEAH!” and “OMG!” from our smiling, wide eyed, faces.

Space was the place, you see!

That Green Lantern story might arguably be the best Green Lantern story of them all. At the time, it breathed new life into DC Comics and space-faring comic book stories.

And with the publishing company’s “Rebirth” branded titles a little over a month into their campaign right now, that sense of excitement has got a renewed ground swell.

In many ways, that enthusiasm comes to a head today with the release of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #1!

Trailer Time: Wonder Woman

The trailer for Wonder Woman is here, giving us all more of what we wanted from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice -more Gal Gadot. The film is going the Captain America route, taking place in the early 20th century, and this trailer captures the vibe perfectly.

Trailer Time: Suicide Squad

The final trailer for Suicide Squad dropped today, and it’s three minutes of serious noise and action. I’m still curious what the actual plot of the movie, but we’ll find out soon enough.

Trailer Time: Justice League

The Justice League trailer just dropped at Comic-Con, and it feels pretty darn good to us.

How about you?

Mysterious And Heavy Lands The “Black Hammer #1” On The Wednesday Run

Black Hammer 1First issues.

They get me excited!

And first issues by great creators that I trust and whose work I constantly follow due to their reverence for the history of the comic book art forum – as well as their interests in turning it on its head? Well, that makes a “Wednesday Run” to the local comic book shop all that much easier!

And hurried!

In that vein, today sees the release of a brand new superhero series from some pretty incredible talent. Action-filled and full of mystery, adventure, and science fiction elements, it’s a series that should prove worthy of your monthly comic book reading habits.

After a lot of buildup and a lot of anxious wait, today finally sees the release of Black Hammer #1!

Disturbing Imagery Gets Preacher’s Latest Episode “El Valero” Some Extra Credit Points

Preacher2

Ever seen a man shoot himself deaf? How about a guy offer his own no-longer-attached penis to his friends? Ever watched a guy hold his daughter’s guts in one hand and a cow’s in the other while crying about the fact they’re both just meat? If you watched “El Valero,” last night’s episode of Preacher, you can no longer say no to any of these questions. I will give the show credit for its creative use of disturbing imagery.

Glenn Walker Reviews Civil War II #3

aciv1

This week brings us the third issue of the Civil War II main series from Marvel Comics. In the last issue the precognitive Inhuman Ulysses predicted the future deaths of all the heroes at the hands of the Hulk. Now, the assembled so-called heroes confront Dr. Bruce Banner about the horrific havoc he has yet to wreck. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Civil War II #3… as always, spoiler warnings are in effect.

The Dog Days Of Summer Brings “Millarworld Annual 2016” On The Wednesday Run

Millarworld Annual 2016It’s the morning of July 13 here in Toronto, and the iPhone weather app is telling me we’ve got a high of 33 degrees Celsius to look forward to today. That’s 91.5 degrees Fahrenheit for those five, hard-headed countries that still use that particular form of measurement.

In an entirely separate conversation, someone nearby to me utters “…and that doesn’t even include the humidity.”

There are storm clouds converging, little coloured icons of lightning bolts on my phone screen, warning me to bring an umbrella if I’m out and about later tonight. No worries there.

For when the dog days of summer hit, it’s best to relax, a cool beverage within arm’s reach, and a comic book in hand. Today, how does an anthology compilation take you? An “annual” even?

Today, let’s talk about the Millarworld Annual 2016!

“He Gone” and So Is Amanda Blue’s Patience For Preacher

If I could sum up Preacher’s Episode 7 in one word, it would be WHY?! Because that’s what I found myself shouting at my TV the most last night while watching. I’m still committed to not hating the series, because as a friend said, “I can’t hate it, it’s Preacher,” though I am mighty disappointed in the creators. After months of Rogen and Goldberg gushing about what huge fans they are of the comics, they’ve sure managed to knock the entire storyline on its ass and kick the absolute crap out of it. Repeatedly. And for the life of me, I can’t understand why.
