After much hype, “Ends of the Earth” finally kicks off with Amazing Spidey #682. Led by a dying Doctor Octopus, the Sinister Six is up to no good once again, this time threatening to speed up global warming and melt the planet. Or so Peter Parker thinks. The twist is that Doc Ock says he merely wa…

What if the B.P.R.D. met Myth Busters and that damn Animal Planet show Finding Bigfoot? That’s what Hoax Hunters reminds me of. And not surprisingly, Hoax Hunters #0 is a pretty damn fun book, introducing a cool mythology and serving as an origin story for the team’s best member — an astronaut with the power to command a murder of crows…

I’ve never read a page of The Darkness comics. I’ve played the video games, but the comics are foreign to me. That’s why I approached The Darkness #101 with some trepidation. I honestly had no idea what to expect. But after reading this issue I can happily report that The Darkness #101 serves as a f…

We finally come to the end of this series’ first story arc in Nightwing #7. This issue is a knock-down-drag-out affair pitting Nightwing against Saiko as Haly’s Circus burns down around them. It’s an action-packed issue that serves as a perfect platform for artists Eddy Barrows and Geraldo Borges to…

Dominique Laveau: Voodoo Child #1 represents the third new Vertigo ongoing series in as many weeks. While I’m all for original, new series to diversify the industry pool, I can’t say this first issue of Voodoo Child really impressed me. In fact, I wrapped up the issue feeling pretty indifferent abou…

Have you ever wondered why there are only women on Paradise Island? Well, Brian Azzarello reveals that shocking truth with Wonder Woman #7 and it’s kind of disturbing, yet makes a lot of sense. Who would have expected a Wonder Woman comic to feature a mass orgy sequence? Not me, that’s for sure. But…

Catwoman is one of several New 52 books that seems intent on building a new supporting cast rather than using established characters. Judd Winick has already introduced a new fence and a new GCPD rival for Selina Kyle, and in issue #7 he adds a character that may or may not turn out to be Selina’s new partner in crime. None of the new characters display much depth yet, but at least the book is slowly developing a sense of identity…

Mistwalker, the developer started by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, is taking up mobile development — or, at least, reaching the result of an experiment started two years ago. In an email to Siliconera, Sakaguchi revealed that “I’m working on three new games on iOS.” He’ll update fans on their progress via Facebook, a change from his previous tactic of posting Lego models on his own blog.

Sakaguchi’s hobbies still figure into the games, though: one will be surfing-related. The other two games are as yet totally unannounced. If you’re eager to play some Mistwalker content sooner, The Last Story is coming to Wii this summer.
