My (Mostly) Spoiler-Free Review of “Morbius”, by Angela Rairden

ATTENTION: This blog contains a slight spoiler concerning who the villain of the movie is (which will not be a spoiler to fans of the Morbius comic). Read on at your own risk.   Morbius, which is based on a Marvel character but distributed by Sony, plays out more like a horror film than it does the typical sort of superhero film that we’re used to seeing about Marvel characters. The third film in Sony’s Spider-man Universe (following Venom and Venom: Let There Be Carnage), Morbius features a darker, bloodier theme and the creepy reality of its protagonist needing to...

“Batman: The Knight” Shows Readers How Bruce Wayne Becomes The World’s Greatest Detective, by Angela Rairden

The Good Asian was a comic that I had heard positive things about since its initial release; however, it was a comic that I knew nothing about. Therefore, I picked up its first trade, which encompasses issues one through four, not knowing what to expect from a comic with such an unusual and, frankly, slightly uncomfortable title. What I discovered was a gripping tale exposing a rarely discussed time in American history told in a deeply authentic noir tone. Taking place in 1936’s San Francisco, The Good Asian shines a light on a time period that most modern Americans either...

Marvel Debuted an Impressive List of New Superheroine Comics in January, by Angela Rairden

This month, Marvel launched a slew of new superheroine comics, introducing new storylines, villains, and even some unlikely partnerships. Whether struggling to understand their place in the world, or sacrificing everything to protect those who need it, each of these illustrious leading ladies prove that they are forces to be reckoned with. Here are my reviews of a few of them, and a list of the impressive amount of variant covers that were released with each title (because there are a lot of them and they are all very pretty). ELEKTRA: BLACK, WHITE & BLOOD #1 Release date: January 5th,...

Emilia Clarke’s “M.O.M.” is a Missive of Female Empowerment, by Angela Rairden

"Furthermore, this comic really isn’t a female vs. male story. It’s meant as a celebration of what makes women beautiful and magical by viewing perceived weaknesses as strengths instead. "
