Review: All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #8

Review: All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #8

Gerry Duggan’s run with the Guardians of the Galaxy for me has been an up and down affair but I can say with total confidence that this issue is easily his best yet. I’d even go so far as to say it’s the best Guardians book to come out since the glory days of Dan...

Neil The Geek Father’s Weekly #1 Picks for 23th August 2017

An emotional roller coaster of a week hit my reading hard. Won’t go into reasons on a public website but my comic reading was kept to only my pulled issues last Wednesday. To which I have to say Time & Vine (IDW Publishing) and Spy Seal (Image Comics) brought much-needed smiles to my face. Therefore my...

Mister Miracle #1: Review

Mister Miracle #1: Review

As of this writing, I’ve stayed off of other comic sites to the best of my ability. In my week long pondering after reading the issue, I’m sure I will be inundated with near-to-perfect reviews after I post this and finally peak beyond the other comic site’s catch head lines for King and Gerard’s 1st...

Neil The Geek Father’s Weekly #1 Picks for 16th August 2017

A week that included decorating, a family get-together and generally being a Dad, hit my comic reading hard last week. Having only read two single issues I feel I’ve disowned my love of sequential art. Therefore I have set myself a challenge to complete two trades prior to next weeks picks. Will I complete this challenge? Stay...

Rob’s Wild MCU Guesses: The Defenders

Rob’s Wild MCU Guesses: The Defenders

I know very little about The Defenders as a team, a theme that will appear over and over in these pieces. That wont ever stop me speculating and over-thinking about any of them.

Neil The Geek Father’s Weekly #1 Picks for 9th August 2017

Single comics have taken a step back for me over the past week. Since taking delivery of The Crow by James O’Barr, that has been the majority of my reading. Thanks to Mike The Mutant for the recommendation from a previous Your Mom’s Basement episode. Having only ever watched the film it’s great to get further insight...

Let’s Talk About That Domino Casting

Let’s Talk About That Domino Casting

Ryan Reynolds posted a not-so-teaser of Zazie Beetz as she’ll appear as Domino in the upcoming, and probably hilarious Deadpool sequel on his twitter yesterday. And we need to talk about it. Before I nerd rage with my major gripes I have with it, take a gander for yourself.     Domino is often written as...

Generation Gone #1 Review

Generation Gone #1 Review

Generation Gone’s first issue feels written specifically for me starting immediately with the cover as it depicts a starry night and word balloons with dialogue that grabs your curiosity and dares you to flip the comic open to the next page like well-placed bread crumbs. It’s a gutsy move to use your front cover to...
