    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D just had its best season ever

    Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has always been a bit of an odd duck. Debuting in 2013 to capitalize on the success of “The Avengers” and the expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, the series was meant to fill in the gaps of what was happening in the Marvel Universe as a...

    INJUSTICE 2 Pre-Release: Thoughts on the Next Netherrealm Classic

    We are now mere hours from the long anticipated release of Netherrealm Studios and WB Entertainment’s Injustice 2, but it feels like it’s a lifetime away still.

    Superman Reborn for a New Generation

    Superman Reborn for a New Generation   Superman’s had a pretty rough go at it. For years he’s been a bit of a joke among fans; the “Big Blue Boy Scout” mentality wasn’t viewed as a positive when heroes like Wolverine and The Punisher were industry best-sellers. Writers seemed...

    ‘StarCraft: Blizzard’s Genre Defining Space Strategy Game’

    Before they were known for “World of Warcraft,” Blizzard Entertainment reached mainstream success with their real-time strategy game “Warcraft: Orcs & Humans.” Set in a medieval fantasy world, the point and click strategy game pitted human and orc against each other in a genre-defining classic.

    Swamp Thing The Saga of Bernie Wrightson’s Mainstream Masterpiece

    Last month, the comics world suffered a blow when famed comic book artist Bernie Wrightson passed away at the age of 68. Wrightson had been a staple of the comics industry since his first work for DC Comics in 1968, penciling “House of Mystery.” Wrightson became known for his...
