New Comic Book Reviews Week Of 9/17/14

19th September

Another week and another set of reviews. There were a lot of new #1 books this week and it made up for last weeks weaker selections.

George Perez’s Sirens #1

Boom! Comics Writer and Artist George Perez, Colorist Leonardo Paciarotti, Letterer Ed Dukeshire

It’s been quite a while when Perez has done both full artwork and writing and so there was a lot riding on this book. The plot synopsis from Boom is, As an intergalactic force enslaves planets across the galaxy, the legendary team known only as the Sirens must reunite to save the galaxy—but is that even possible when the Sirens themselves don’t even remember who they are? And the rest of the universe only remembers them as…villains? A six-issue miniseries featuring your new favorite comic book team, written and drawn by the master himself, George Pérez (Wonder Woman, JLA Vs. Avengers) … Read More »



LA County Fair caters to geeks…again.

17th September

It’s that time of year again for the Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona. As you contemplate the chocolate dipped bacon or the bacon sprinkled doughnuts for a snack, run, don’t walk to Building Number 8 to see a heroic exhibit.

Once again, Building Number 8 is home to a geek fest. The Hall of Heroes occupies the entire building with displays relating to heroes from comic books to films, from radio shows to television. There is a plethora of artwork, props, rare comics and photo ops galore. The LA Fair runs through September 28, so get there as soon as you can and spend a couple of hours (easily done) in a geek haven.

 

 



Hannibal Season 2 Blu-Ray Review

15th September

Well Fannibals the long wait for Hannibal season 2 on Blu-Ray from Lionsgate Home Video is finally released on Tuesday and here is a look at what is on the disc and I will review the discs and there contents. If you missed my review of season 1 last year (SEE SEASON 1 REVIEW HERE). The season is spread over 3 discs and here is a breakdown of what is on each disc. If you missed last years interviews with Bryan Fuller or Hannibal Blu-Ray Producer Cliff Stephenson click on their names to head over and read what they said.

Disc 1:

Episode 1 Kaiseki (Producers Cut 43:11) 

Jack Crawford visits Dr. Hannibal Lecter at his home and immediately attacks him. A protracted and brutal fight ensues, ending with Lecter stabbing Crawford’s neck with a piece of broken glass. Bleeding profusely, Crawford manages to lock himself … Read More »



New Comic Book Reviews Week Of 9/10/14

12th September

This week is a real mixed bag of new comic books. There were some real disappointments but there were some strong books to balance it all out. So let’s get going.

Teen Dog #1

Boom! Box Writer and Artist Jake Lawrence

I really wanted to like this book but… The synopsis from Boom is, Skateboards, football games, prom…your teenage years have got nothin’ on the raddest dude that’s ever graced a denim vest. Written and illustrated by Jake Lawrence (Time Cowboy), join Teen Dog and his best friend Mariella as they tackle typical teen life with a manic twist. Growing up is an adventure, and you might as well rock it! I want to start off by saying that this is not a really terrible book but, the problem that I had with it was that it was just pretty boring. The book came off as a strip … Read More »



The Real Surprise From The Apple Press Conference

10th September

While there is a lot of hoopla that went with the Apple announcement of the new iPhone 6 and iWatch Tuesday the real shock of the press conference wasn’t any of the hardware announced. The real shock was that U2 has teamed up with Apple on iTunes to give away their newest album Songs of Innocence for free, yes FREE. While this is not the first time that a band has given away a full album before, like in 2013 the hip hop group Death Grips with their album Government Plates. This is the first time a major band on a major record label has done this in such a large scope. Now I am sure that Apple has paid U2 a nice chunk of change for this privilege of the free release of the album. Word has it that … Read More »
