Stay Tooned Sundays: Justice League: Throne of Atlantis

Posted  January 25, 2015  by  Cameron Crump

Anybody looking to get their superhero fix knows that DC is the only game in town and 2015 gives us their latest offering in the form of “Justice Leauge: Throne of Atlantis”. This is a follow up to 2014’s “Justice League: War”, both of which are adaptations of the most recent retellings of the origin stories from the comics done by Geoff Johns. In the first year run of the reboot, Geoff’s job was to balance the big name characters in a story that showed each of their strengths as well as define how those strengths play in a team setting. The six solo acts struggle but eventually find their footing and push back the coming apocalypse,coming from Apokolips (see what I did there).

Aliens vs Predator: Fire & Stone #4 (Dark Horse) Infinite Speech: It’s a bit of an open ending but a good one. All-New Captain America #3 (Marvel) Infinite Speech: Sam gets a legit origin and I realized if it wasn’t for Redwing he’d have lost the shield by now. Still a damn good series! Amazing […]

Ye Olde School Cafe’: Marvel and DC Present: The Uncanny X-Men and The New Teen Titans #1 (1982)

Posted  January 19, 2015  by  InfiniteSpeech

It may be hard to believe but there was a time when the two largest comic companies got together and let their respective characters play in the same sandbox for a while. Maybe things were a little more fun and a lot less corporate (at least to the casual fan) back in 1982 but it resulted […]
