Comics of May 16, 2016

Before I get into comics this week, I just thought I’d like to talk about a game I played through this past week, Life is Strange. Although it’s not perfect, I think it’s pretty good. The storytelling is strong, the … Continue reading

Age of Apocalypse 5 review

As I mentioned in my Astonishing Ant-Man 1 review, I only picked up 3 comics this week. I would say that I can’t wait for next month when a bunch of the titles I’m waiting for finally release, but apparently … Continue reading

So, for the second time in two months, I only picked up 4 comics in one week. As such, I’ll just write 4 reviews and not bother with my first impressions post. You can tell that Secret Wars is starting … Continue reading
