Concept Factory: Taking Martian Manhunter In A New Direction

Martian Manhunter Feature

With Justice League of America debuting soon, I thought I’d drag out an old idea of mine on the Martian Manhunter.

masseffectapproachfeature22

There’s been a lot of talk amongst gamers about how Rocksteady should create a game for like… every single DC hero, with their successful approach to creating the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham series.

The Greatest Graphic Novels: Earth X

Earth X Feature

  Marvel Comics has had its fair share of dystopian futures and alternate realities.

Batman: The Modern Revenger: A Dissertation on Batman and Early Modern Revenge Drama

Batman-2

The Early Modern Era of revenge drama can essentially be boiled down to key components, a chain of events that build around a core of recurring themes and archetypes. The setting is always a place full of corruption, especially from self-serving leaders: they are vice-filled; sometimes a touch unhinged, and unbound by their power, be … Continue reading

"Moses move over: here comes Captain Eqypt!"

Ever had a family member, a bad friend, a boss, a janitor–hell, anybody–tell you they had this amazing story you had to hear? Like, right now?

An In-Depth Review at X-Men: First Class (Spoiler-Free… I think)

X-Men-First-Class-The-Gangs-All-Here-19-1-11-kc

(for a quick look of this movie, check out my Review) The X-Men franchise means a lot to me. I’m an avid fan: I’ve read as many of the comic as possible; I’ve seen all of the cartoons (even “Pryde of the X-Men); I’ve seen all of the films (even the made-for-TV movie “Generation X); … Continue reading

X-Men: First Class Review: Does it Pass or Fail?

Gifted, or "Special"?

While this fun summer action flick is certainly a huge step above the previous four films, it still suffers greatly from the same mistakes: too many characters, a lack of depth, and a predictable plot. I know: sounds like I didn’t like the movie. Let me say that as an avid X-Men fan, I have … Continue reading
