Age of Ultron continues to improve, though it had little room to get worse. Issue six was very good, and shows what this series could be. I have to print a mild retraction: I gave issue four a real shellacking over the (And there will be AoU SPOILERS from here on in) casual death of [...]
The best comedians are often self-loathing, depressed freakazoids. Eric Powel, writer and artist on The Goon must HATE himself more than a Slayer fan who has run out of razor blades, because that cat is putting out the funniest comic book on the stands today. This week sees TWO Goon books, the new issue of [...]
The best comic of last week? MARS ATTACKS POPEYE. I don’t mean to give out spoilers, but the Martians lost. I do hope they fare better this week against KISS. Maybe with KISS gone IDW will start publishing a Jethro Tull comic book! ONE of the best comics of last week was Hellboy In Hell #2. Elegant, [...]

Take a whole hand-full of DC numbers 4, add some Marvel, a bit of IDW, a pinch of Dark Horse, and finish off with just a great big helping of Coffee. Let steep for three minutes and stir!
by Chris Troy Hey FPNYC faithful, in a few short hours, yours truly will be at the Javitis Center, fan-gasming over the nerdfest that is the 2011 New York Comic Con. Despite being a show veteran, this is my favorite convention of the year, and I’m really excited to see what the likes of Marvel, [...]

Come by the store and pick up a special coupon for a FREE download of ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9: Magical Mystery Tour,” featuring the Beetles!

It’s been pretty crazy these past several weeks, here in the basement of Forbidden Planet NYC. There was the heat wave … and other things to, I suspect. I just remember the heat wave, then a blank period, and then waking up with a copy of RASL stuck to the side of my face. Of [...]
Grab The Goon Issue #32 while you still can!!! Thank you Eric Powell.
Over the years Dark Horse has done a fantastic job of bringing American fans the best in manga and translated novels (like the Vampire Hunter D series, one of my very favorite series). It’s no secret that they’ve done more than bring us the latest volumes of what you could classify as heavyweight and/or classic [...]
Fact: Paul Chadwick’s Concrete is one of my favorite comics. Fiction: Buying Dark Horse Presents #1 (which features an all new COLOR Concrete story) will make you as cool as me. O.K. so it may not make you as cool as me, but it is packed from cover to cover with amazing comicy stuff by [...]
I’ve been reading over past columns to make sure I don’t repeat myself. Still, there is a line I used last year that pretty much sums up my feelings this week. I’m not sure how improper it is to quote yourself, but here goes: “Seriously, San Diego Comic Con is like NOTHING you have ever experienced … and once again I shall not be going.”
By Unkiedev When we grade comic books for resale quality we use terms like Mint, Near Mint, Fine and so on. Descriptions are necessary so we can quantify worth. These terms, however, cannot hope to reflect the actual story in question. We may judge a book by its cover in the Overstreet Price Guide, but [...]
