I'm a proud geek. I'm a long time X-Men fan with well over 5000 comics. I've been reading comics since I was 13 (many many moons ago) after my friend got me hooked on the X-Men. My weekly pull list (helping to keep my local comic store in business) includes X-Men Gold, X-Men Blue, Weapon X, Iceman, Jean Grey, Old Man Logan, Astonishing X-Men, Justice League, Dark Nights Metal, Flash, and First Strike.When I'm not reading them, I'm trying to get my kids interested in comics, but no luck so far. I also play video games, watch movies, do yard work (although that's more of a necessity than a hobby) I love my kids, comics, X-Men, and politics (ugh), but if you read my blogs, please leave comments, thoughts, suggestions. I'm a firm believer of the thought that there is always room for improvement.

Batman: Last Knight on Earth #1: The Last Batman Story You’ll Ever Need

Batman: Last Knight on Earth #1

Batman Last Knight on Earth takes Batman to the ends of the earth in a post-apocalyptic setting as Snyder and Capullo do what they do best: they break down the Dark Knight to what makes him Batman, what makes him special. It’s a masterful start to the end of what is the best duo ever to work on the world’s greatest detective.

Firefly #4: Murphy’s Law Strikes Back

Firefly #4

Firefly #4: It’s another fun issue that we’ve come to expect from this creative team. Pak and McDaid clearly understand these characters and are giving us great Mal moments. It’s a little light on some of the characters but we can’t expect a focus on everybody in an ensemble book. It’s definitely another strong entry in one of my favorite adaptations of a TV series.

Transformers #1: ‘Til All Are One

Transformers #1

Transformers #1: This reboot misses the mark in some parts but keeps the reader interested enough to check out more. It’s part political drama, part mystery, all rock ‘em sock ‘em robots. Worth checking out if you’re a transformer fan and as with most IDW’s Transformer books, it’s more intelligent than a book about an 80’s cartoon containing transforming cars and planes has any business being.
