TV Review: Marvel’s Jessica Jones S01E01 — S01E03

While DC comics basi­cally owns network tv adap­ta­tions of comic book char­ac­ters, Marvel Comics has been setting out to do some­thing radi­cally different with its Netflix series. Dare­devil set a very high bar giving is a dark explo­ration of  a street level vigi­lante. Marvel’s Jessica Jones  is even darker and quite possibly better. I say that having only watched the first … Continue reading TV Review: Marvel’s Jessica Jones S01E01 — S01E03

TV Review: Marvel’s Daredevil S01E05 — S01E08

So in my initial review of Marvel’s Dare­devil (because all Marvel tv shows appar­ently must be called Marvel’s xxx) I think I made it pretty clear that I was really enjoying the show. If you’re looking for a synopsis of this review it would be: Still enjoying it! But the show is evolving and I think I have some addi­tional thoughts … Continue reading TV Review: Marvel’s Dare­devil S01E05 — S01E08

TV Review: Daredevil S01E01 through S01E04

My plan was to watch and review the first three episodes of Netflix’ new orig­inal show, and the first fruits of their part­ner­ship with Marvel,  Dare­devil.  When I finished the third episode though I imme­di­ately started watching the fourth and that should tell you how much I’m enjoying the series. The show is very good but it isn’t … Continue reading TV Review: Dare­devil S01E01 through S01E04

Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Well this was just plain fun. I had a smile on my face through almost the entire movie. And if you want a TLDR for this review, then fun pretty much sums it all up. Certainly this isn’t an intel­lec­tu­ally chal­lenging movie but I think I can safely say that you’ll enjoy every moment of it. When Marvel Studios announced they … Continue reading Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

12 Characters Marvel Should Put In Their Movies

Marvel enter­tain­ment have announced the third phase of their epic and impres­sive movie plans.  And if you thought Guardians of the Galaxy was a risky move they’ve shown they have no such worries with movies based on Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel all in the lineup. So with Marvel clearly happy to mine even C or … Continue reading 12 Char­ac­ters Marvel Should Put In Their Movies

LEGO Superheroes — Green Arrow

Obvi­ously LEGO have been selling a variety of super­hero sets for some time now under license from both DC Comics and Marvel Comics. But this build by Nicolas Picot is some­thing very different and oh so impres­sive. For a start it’s about 20 inches in height and if that’s not enough there are 44 points of artic­u­la­tion which … Continue reading LEGO Super­heroes — Green Arrow

Marvel Fan Art — Captain America: Buy War Bonds

Another themat­i­cally appro­priate post from me today. This fan art of Captain America by jiuge was done a couple of years ago but it’s new to me. The good Captain is an obvious subject for a July 4th piece and this one certainly amps up the patri­otic symbolism with the flag and eagle in the back­ground too. It’s well … Continue reading Marvel Fan Art — Captain America: Buy War Bonds

Saga Cosplay — Prince Robot IV

Here’s a really ambi­tious bit of cosplay. The photo­graph was taken by @luckycreature on Twitter, but I don’t know who actu­ally did the cosplay. For those who aren’t familiar Prince Robot IV is a char­acter in the excel­lent sci-fantasy comic book series Saga written by Brian K. Vaughn, drawn by Fiona Staples and published by Image Comics. If … Continue reading Saga Cosplay — Prince Robot IV

DC Comics Art — The Batman Family

Wow. What an incred­ible collec­tion of the extended Batman family across the entire DC Multi­verse. Pencilled by Nate Stockman and colored by Simon Gough. You’re looking at a distil­la­tion of 75 years of Batman stories. We’ve got everyone you could think of in here: Helena Wayne, Jason Todd, Dick Grayson, Tom Wayne, Stephanie Brown, Tim Drake, Carrie Kelly, … Continue reading DC Comics Art — The Batman Family

DC Comics Fan Art — Batman: Guardian of Gotham

Artist Francis Manapul painted this moody water­color of The Dark Knight surveying Gotham from the rooftops. There’s a certain symmetry to the use of the gargoyle in an image like this. Batman is a guardian and a ward against evil much like it is. The heavily built, almost muscular Batman with the short ears on the cowl some­what reminds … Continue reading DC Comics Fan Art — Batman: Guardian of Gotham
