Any Empire HC

Both nostalgic and haunting, Nate Powell’s slice of American life shows us the fragility of youth and the pain of losing our innocence. Despite it’s thickness, the pages can be turned with lightning speed due to the sparse dialogue -some of which are literally and intentionally unintelligible scribbles, (the way you only half hear things…

GI Combat #1

When DC cancelled Men at War and Blackhawks, did they really think a new War book would good idea? How about one that is pretty flat and dull, pandering and derivative? So there are two stories.

Dial H #1

Out of all DC’s new books, Dial H held the least personal appeal. I held out the least amount of hope but sometimes life can please and at least amuse and, apparently, so can Dial H. The series has a very unorthodox formula in the world of superheroes and secret identities; when you use a…

The Town

Ben Affleck is such a fan of Michael Mann’s Heat that he took it upon himself to remake the entire movie! There’s nothing terribly original about the movie other than it’s set in Boston which is Affleck’s home town and an unsettling similarity to the Departed which only came out a few years ago. The…
