Thunderbolts Annual #1

Conventional storytelling on TV has evolved from single episode stories in the eighties to more complex season long, and in some cases show enduring plots than employ deeper characters and rich relationships that you see in almost any show you tube into nowadays.

X-O Manowar #1

Part Gladiator, part Metroid and part Captain America and all together an entirely new beast of comic creation, the origin of X-O was fantastic even back in the nineties and since then there hasn’t really been anything like it.

World’s Finest #1

Straight out of the pages of Earth 2 #1, Supergirl (Powergirl) and Robin (Huntress) are stuck in our (the new DC 52) universe. We catch up on just how they’ve been spending the last five years and how they rename themselves before throwing down with the Irradiated man or at least starting to as it’s…
