Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles – Review

justice league gods and monsters chroniclesc logoHello interweb, Nate here.  So Bruce Timm, who was the man responsible for the DCAU, is making a brand new DC animated movie!  Considering that Justice League: War (which Bruce Timm was not a part of whatsoever) was the first of the bad DC animated movies to have come out in recent years, it’s nice to see a man who actually knows what he’s doing take a shot at it.  But this isn’t it, right?…Right?…Riiiight????

Ultimate Spider-man Vol 1: Power and Responsibility – Review

Ultimate Spider-man Vol 1 Power and ResponsibilityHello interweb, Nate here.  Sorry I didn’t post anything Monday but hopefully this will make up for that.  So I’ve said several times in the past that I like Miles Morales/Spider-man more than the current Peter Parker/Spider-man, and I still have that opinion.  Many people say that Spider-man comics has been going downhill since the terrible storyline that is One More Day but I don’t really know how true that is since I haven’t been reading comics for that long.  With the lack of really good Spider-man stories recently, I decided to check out the Ultimate Spider-man comics starting with the first trade (consisting of the first 7 issues): Ultimate Spider-man Vol 1: Power and Responsibility, which retells the origin of Peter Parker, aka Spider-man.

Blue Beetle Volume 8 – Review

Blue Beetle ShellshockedHello interweb, Nate here.  So while I’m revisiting episodes of Justice League to get ready for Friday’s list, I thought I would take today to review a title that I’ve been wanting to read and review for a while: Blue Beetle Volume 8.  I’ve already reviewed the first 3 issues of the New 52 Blue Beetle (reviews of issues 1, 2, and 3) so I decided to check out Jaime Reyes’s first comic book run.  The only problem is I got the entire run from my library as trades (the list of trades for this run is below) and I actually couldn’t get my hands on the one called Blue Beetle: Black and Blue.  Usually I would be find with this, but since I’m reviewing the series I kinda feels like this would make the review incomplete.  So just keep that in mind.  Also since I’m reviewing the entire run I’m not going to do my usual format and instead I’ll just talk about the book similarly to how I did my FCBD reviews.
