MOSAIC #6

Written by Geoffrey Thorne Drawn by Bruno Oliveira Colored by Emilio Lopez Published by Marvel Comics PREVIOUSLY: MOSAIC #5 Although last issue capped off the first arc of this serious mostly satisfactorily, there was one pretty large dangling plot-thread.

MOSAIC #5

Written by Geoffrey Thorne Drawn by Khary Randolph Published by Marvel Comics PREVIOUSLY: MOSAIC #4 Okay, what can I say without spoiling all the good stuff? How about…WOW! Seriously, it all (well, for the most part) comes to head in this issue, which is labeled as the end of the opening arc of this series.…

MOSAIC #4

Written by Geoffrey Thorne Drawn by Khary Randolph Published by Marvel Comics PREVIOUSLY: MOSAIC #3 SPIDER-MAN! In the cliffhanger of the last issue, Morris jumped into SPIDER-MAN! Yeah, that in and of itself is a major spoiler. So if you’ve waiting for the trade on this series and are reading these reviews first, sorry, but…

MOSAIC #3

Written by Geoffrey Thorne Drawn by Khary Randolph Published by Marvel Comics PREVIOUSLY: MOSAIC #2 This book just keeps getting better. I have to say that right off the start. It’s getting tougher not spoiling anything, but just trust me, you want to read this. First, it opens with Kenny, the EMT/Fireman/Former Army Ranger that…

ROUTE 3 #3

Writer: Robert Jeffrey II Artist: Sean Damien Hill Publisher: Terminus Media Previously: Route 3 #2 This is a bigger than average issue, about 35 pages, and the first half is mostly dialogue.

MIDNIGHT TIGER #2

Written by DeWayne Feenstra Art by Ray-Anthony Height Colors by Paul Little Letters by Erica Schultz Published by Action Lab Entertainment PREVIOUSLY: MIDNIGHT TIGER #1 This is a surprisingly spare issue, at least compared to the previous issue and issue #0. It opens with Gavin at school with his friends Dex and Ryan. They have…

IF I COULD MAKE A SEQUEL TO “HANCOCK”…

Will Smith is one of my favorite actors but, to be blunt, I did not really like Hancock. You can read my full review HERE. But the TL/DR version is that I thought the film should have stuck with the original premise of an action/comedy about a down-on-his-luck superhero who gets a PR makeover and…

SAVAGE DRAGON #194

Writer/Artist: Erik Larsen Publisher: Image Comics Previously: SAVAGE DRAGON #193 This is a pretty action-packed issue, which fits the new status quo of Malcolm Dragon’s life. He’s trying his best to support himself (by working “off the books” for the police, catching super freaks) and go to school, but he can barely catch his breath…

HANCOCK

Written by Vincent Ngo and Vince Gilligan Directed by Peter Berg Released in July 2008 So after the recent news about the Fantastic Four movie casting has sparked a lot of discussion across the net about Black superheroes in movies, and I thought I’d revisit this film. Here’s a movie about a Black superhero, and…
