Point of Entry – Hellboy, Son Of A…

Probably the best known superhero not a part of the DC or Marvel Universes is Hellboy. His droll charisma and relatable weariness won readers over for over two decades. Hellboy resonated with readers because he didn’t let others dictate who he was, he broke the rules, and he saved people without expecting or even wanting thanks with a world-weary shrug. He was born the son of a duke of Hell and a witch, and was…

Writer Jeff Lemire has imagined a team that has a few very…

Review: Cryptocracy #1 – Illuminati or Bust

Review: Cryptocracy #1 – Illuminati or Bust

Cryptocracy isn’t your typical series. Instead of following a hero or even someone on the Lawful or Good end of the alignment spectrum, we follow a family who is running the world from behind the scenes. The first issue deals with the sabotage of a dark matter machine, keeping this technology out of the hands of the public. Nine families run the world from underground in sprawling facilities filled with Greys (atypical aliens), and in gigantic floating fortresses….

REVIEW: Fight Club 2 HC – I Am Jack’s Perpetual Journey

REVIEW: Fight Club 2 HC – I Am Jack’s Perpetual Journey

Fight Club: A cultural rite of passage. Millions of people watch the movie or read the book in High School, leaving them awestruck, confused, enthralled.

The Goon Movie May Still be Happening

In 2012, Tim Miller and Jeff Fowler launched a Kickstarter campaign to adapt Eric Powell’s comic series The Goon into an animated film. Since then, David Fincher has signed on to produce, but updates on the project have been few and far between leading many to think that the project had been canned for good. It seemed liked studios just weren’t interested in financially bringing an R rated comic book movie to life but now that Miller’s R rated Deadpool movie has been…
