If you’re not thrilled with the relaunched DC Universe so far, DC has your alternative, and it’s called Dial H. Emerging from the decades-old tradition of the Dial H for Hero titles, novelist China Mieville introduces us to a new everyman named Nelson Jent. Rather than the dynamic of a static superhero identity that most current Big 2 titles use, Dial H features a protagonist who assumes a different alter ego with different powers each time he uses a mysterious telephone booth…

Remember that scene at the beginning of Temple of Doom where the cork pops, the glass breaks, and, all of the sudden, a happy moment is transformed by the deep red stain blooming across the white shirt of Indy’s pal? Moments like that, where the story bends an audience’s emotions back on themselves, are what Peter David excels at, and X-Factor #235 is a great example…

It all comes down to this: Swamp Thing versus a Rot-possessed Abigail Arcane in a battle for the survival of, well, everything. With such a tremendous lead-in and so much talent huddled together for the creation of this issue, it’s surprising that the result fails to steal the reader’s breath the way this series has done so regularly in the past…

Detective Comics wound up being the first of the New 52 Batman books I dropped. Tony Daniel’s new series simply lacked a distinctive voice among the numerous other Bat titles. But I decided to give the series another try now that the “Night of the Owls” crossover has commenced. Clearly, I haven’t be…

Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha and Omega has been a solid return to the franchise for Brian Wood, but not an amazing one. I’ve been waiting from the start for the series to show a little something extra and, frankly, prove it was a story that needed five issues to be told. Unfortunately, issue #5 doesn’t accomplish that, and in fact turns out to be the weakest of the bunch…

It’s ironic that, despite all the trouble Marvel went through to inject a black, movie-friendly Nick Fury into the Marvel Universe, the one solo Fury project hitting the stands in time for the movie doesn’t take place in continuity and doesn’t feature a black Nick Fury. Instead, Fury MAX sees Garth Ennis revive the version of the character seen in his previous Fury mini-series and his Punisher MAX run. He may not be movie-friendly, but this Fury certainly proves he has a place on the stands…

DC canceled their first military-themed New 52 series, Men of War, with its eighth issue last month. Now they’re back with a replacement in the form of G.I. Combat. Is this new book anything more than Men of War by another name? Not really. The new series retains the format of the final two issues o…

“We’re not producing a booth, but we will be participating in E3. We will be showing games to the E3 judges at their event coming up, and we’ll be hosting a press and business center at the show for meetings (as well as participating with first party activities). When we needed to make the decision on the booth (many months ago) we were in a MUCH different place than today. But, we will be there to support our portfolio and the show itself.” – THQ statement
