New Comic Book Day! (September 9th, 2015)

I like comics, and so can you. Here’s something new that I’ve been mulling over. When I buy things on new comic book day (every Wednesday), sometimes I write about them, and sometimes I don’t. Now, I will. (Unless, I don’t get anything.) These won’t be super long, just little things. Here we go. Let’s read some comics! Continue reading New Comic Book Day! (September 9th, 2015)

“Go Canadia!” (We Stand on Guard #1)

“Go Canadia!” (We Stand on Guard #1)

I went to my local comic book shop last Wednesday to pick up Batman Beyond #2, and Secret Wars #4. But, I also neglected to remember that a bunch of comics that I wanted to check out released in July. One of those was Onyx. I have no idea what it really is, it just feels very Metroidy to me.

“Science Wins” (Black Science: Volume 2)

“Science Wins” (Black Science: Volume 2)

Comics time! When I’m not reading the best Marvel has to offer, I love to read some comics that have nothing to do with superheroes at all. I know, it’s crazy, right? Comics without superheroes? Well, it turns out that the medium that’s peppered with speech bubbles is also a great outlet for science fiction. Yay! Sci-fi! I love that! One of the best I’ve encountered is Black Science, from Image Comics. It follows a bunch of scientists on their way across the multiverse, bursting through parallel realities in blind gambles to get home. So far, not much has topped it.
