New Comic Book Reviews Week Of 7/1/15

3rd July

Were back on schedule here at Pop Culture Maven until San Diego Comic Con comes and throws a monkey wrench into the schedule. Lets get to the reviews.

Broken World #2

Boom! Studios Writer Frank J. Barbiere, Artist Christopher Peterson, Colorist Marissa Louise, Letterer Ed Dukeshire

The first issue of this book got off to an interesting idea and was left with a pretty impressive cliffhanger. The second issue gets right back to the people who are left on earth after the asteroid missed earth. Barbiere second issue while good does tread a little water compared to the first issue that was very good. The story seemed a bit padded and while there are still some good ideas the book did lose a bit of steam with this second issue. The artwork by Peterson is decent and does the job but never really … Read More »

Countdown To SDCC 2015 Part 1

1st July

In just 1 week San Diego California will be invaded by geeks and nerds and for five days the city will be overrun with superheroes, Hollywood, video games, toys and so much more. While you are never quite prepared for the insanity that we all subject ourselves to, there are many things that you need to know to help you get ready. If you plan ahead you will have a better experience at the convention. Starting today I will be giving you tips on how to get prepared to survive the gauntlet of SDCC. I have been going to SDCC for over 25 years and every year I try to help others to have a better convention experience. This years show is earlier than usual so I will post the other two guides in the next few days.

New Comic Book Review Catch-Up 6/17 & 6/24

29th June

I’m finally back with new comic book reviews. Because there are so many some will be very brief so we can get to as many as I can. This weeks new comic book reviews will be up on the site Friday and things will should be getting back to normal until San Diego Comic Con in two weeks (YIKES!)

The Fiction #1

Boom! Studios Writer Curt Pires, Artist David Rubin, Colorist Michael Garland, Letter Colin Bell

On the surface The Fiction is a bit of this and a bit of that, meaning that the concept of the book is very familiar but I will give Pires that he infuses just enough originality into it that make for a very pleasant read. The first issues story gets off to a solid start and give the readers enough to want to come back for the … Read More »
