Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series

This weekend the new animated series the Spectacular Spider-Man premiered. I liked it! A Lot!
It premiered with 2 episodes.

1-Survival of the Fittest- This started it all and set the tone for this Spider-Man series. In this episode everyone was freaking introduced. We see the vulture,2 Osborns, i believe we see Otto, Eddie brock and Gwen Stacy, and the Kingpin's voice is heard.... and a shadow too. I won't spoil these episodes but it was great. The vulture looked hot and that says alot. Read more »

Bob's Books 3/7/08

Ok it was a good week again. Let's just get to the point.

•Echo 1- Terry Moore of strangers in Paradise fame has started this new series. I decided to pick this up due to all the critical acclaim about his last series. This is a damn good book. There is a lot of character in this book. I see this book growing into a damn great series. It isn't exactly a super hero book... yet. It has all the ingredients to be one though, and a good book at the same time. Read more »

Bob's Books 3/3/08

WHEW!!! One hell of a weekend. This was a good week in books, and I am sure you will all love the next episode. Until then though i hope these reviews help you out.

•Rasl 1 - It's a good book from a great creator. Jeff Smith made Bone into a epic Comic and then he turned around and decided to create a Mature comic. He pulled it off. One would think such a turn around possibly ruin a guy but if his first book is a sign of things to come... then he should have another epic masterpiece. Read more »

Danny's Blog #2 (My favorite stand alone comic of all time)

BATMAN600_cover

This is Blog numbero dos (that's "number 2") for me and in it I'll be giving you my answer to the question featured on Episode 7 of "The Basement". That question is "What is your favorite stand alone comic of all time?". After viewing episode 7 an orgy of comic books happened in my head. I wish an orgy of Lindsay Lohan clones happened in my house but Scarlet Witch wasn't around to fuck with reality and bring it to life. Sad days, sad days. The only problem (minus the no Lindsay situation) was that none of the comics were really stand alone and were all part of a story arc somehow. Read more »

garfield minus garfield

" Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? "

This site has been making the rounds the past few days. I wouldn't say it makes the comic better per se, but it brings out an interesting dimension to Jon's character you may have missed with Garfield "answering" him.
