Title: Batgirl
Writer: Gail Simone
Penciler: Ardian Syaf
Inker: Vicente Cifuentes
Publisher: DC Comics
Reviewed by Johnny Destructo

“Why is Batgirl wearing Witchblade gauntlets??” That was my first thought when I saw her. Well, ok, that’s not altogether true. That was my first thought when I saw the interior of the book. The cover was something else altogether. I’ve never really liked any Batgirl other than …

Title: Action Comics #1
Writer: Grant Morrison
Artist: Rags Morales
Inker: Rick Bryant
Publisher: DC Comics
Reviewed by Johnny Destructo
THIS should have been the book to kick-off the DCnU. No offense Geoff Johns or Jim Lee, but holy shit. Whereas I would give Justice League #1 a 3.5 rating, Action Comics is a 5 star book, easily! You know what? 6 out of 5 stars. …

Flashpoint #5
Writer: Geoff Johns
Artist: Andy Kubert
Inkers: Sandra Hope and Jesse Delperdang
Reviewed by Johnny Destructo
Well, it’s been no secret that I’ve not been a fan of most of the Flashpoint crossover event. What is a secret is my penchant for an activity I like to call Peanut Butter Balls. FP and PBB have certain aspects in common. They seem like a …

JUSTICE LEAGUE #1
Writer: Geoff Johns
Artist: Jim Lee
Publisher: DC
Reviewer: Optimous Douche
Caution, this review will spoil more than Irene’s attack on America’s refrigerators.
Catharsis.
Above all else this first entry into DC’s new 52 feels like a purging, as if the old DC universe has been smashed into smithereens like Samsonite luggage inside a gorilla’s cage. Yes, the remnants of the old are still …


Steve Petro reviews Amazing Spidey 667:
SPIDER-ISLAND!

Title: Amazing Spider-Man #667
Writer: Dan Slott
Penciler: Humerto Ramos
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Reviewed by Steve Petro
From the moment Dan Slott took over head writing duties for Spider-Man, I’ll be honest: I wasn’t sure what I would be getting from my Spider-Man comics. We were fresh off The Gauntlet and The Grim Hunt, two story arcs that pulled from Spider-Man’s past to make an …


You’re crazy if you don’t watch this!!
MISFITS episode one!

So I’ve heard rumblings in the underground about this show, and by underground, I mean on Facebook. But it’s awesome. A British show about a group of kids sentenced to community service who receive strange new powers. A bunch of nogoodnics if you will.
Apparently it started in ’09, but somehow I’ve only now watched it and am posting it for …

Publisher: Oni Press

There was a time when I looked forward to Oni Press comics more than anything else on the shelves. Having grown up on mainstream superhero comics, it was a revelation to me that there were indy folks doing fun and original work, and that you didn’t need …
