Comic Review – Shazam #1

When it comes to superheroic alter egos, Billy Batson may have the most confusing real-world history of any comic book character in existence. Originally created as Captain Thunder for 1940’s Thrill Comics #1, his origin story was reworked and he was renamed Captain Marvel for Whiz Comics #2, later that same Continue Reading

Comic Review – Dead Man Logan #1

DEAD MAN LOGAN #1 PUBLISHER: Marvel Comics WRITER: Ed Brisson ARTIST: Mike Henderson COLORIST: Nolan Woodard COVER PRICE: $4.99 Old Man Logan is DEAD…again, sort of…but not really. Ever since the Old Man Logan character was introduced as a self-contained story arc written by Mark Millar and with art by  Steve Continue Reading

Titans Episode Review S01: E08

After watching Episode 8 of Titans — titled “Donna Troy” — I can only ask myself one question. Where has this quality been all season? Why have we been flip-flopping between “plot episodes” and “character episodes” when, as made clear by this week’s episode, an effective combination of the two could be Continue Reading

The 30th Anniversary of The Sandman

The 30th Anniversary of The Sandman By Dave Whiteman On November 29, 1988, the first issue of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman went on sale from DC Comics. Soon to be published under the new DC Vertigo imprint, The Sandman received critical acclaim and was one of the first graphic novels Continue Reading

Podcast Episode #012 – Nerd Swag Kickstarter Interview

In Episode #012 Harvey meets with Kegan McMullan of Nerd Swag. He has a Kickstarter campaign for a freakin’ sweet backpack that works GREAT for players of CCGs (such as Magic: The Gathering, Pokémon, etc) or as a new lifestyle brand that you’ll certainly appreciate.

Comic Review: “William Gibson’s Alien 3” #1

“William Gibson’s Alien 3” #1 Review By Dave Whiteman On May 22, 1992, fans of 20th Century Fox’s Alien franchise flocked to theaters to witness the fate of Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Newt, Corporal Hicks and Bishop the android after the events of 1986’s “Aliens” (directed by James Cameron) in what Continue Reading

Comic Review – DC’s Nuclear Winter Special #1

An anthology collecting stories involving the end of the world and the holidays may well be the strangest concept for a comic book I’ve seen in my many years of reading illustrated fiction. Yet the idea has an odd merit, as one could draw parallels between the mindless hordes of Continue Reading

Titans Episode Review S01: E07

Episode 7 of Titans — or “Asylum” — is a strange product. Along with “Together”, it’s probably a pretty good representation of what the show will be if it ever decides to actually be a show about the Titans, rather than a show about Dick Grayson. Yet it’s also more evidence for Continue Reading

Titans Episode Review: S01: E06

Another week, another new episode of Titans. This episode, titled (rather unceremoniously) “Jason Todd”, picks up immediately after the closing moments of the last. Focusing almost entirely on the new and strained relationship between Old-Robin, a.k.a. Dick Grayson, and New-Robin, a.k.a. Jason Todd, the episode follows the duo as they attempt Continue Reading

Comic Review – Books of Magic #1

As part of the relaunch of DC Vertigo’s Sandman Universe, another one of Neil Gaiman’s memorable creations returns to comics with the long awaited “Books of Magic.” First published by DC Comics in 1990 as a mini-series, fan-favorite Tim Hunter began his long journey to becoming the world’s greatest magician, Continue Reading

Comic Review – Injustice 2 Annual #2

Normally I try and review the first issues of new series or the starts of runs by new creative teams on long-running series. This is for the good and simple reason that, typically, that’s when people need a critic’s advice. I’m making an exception this week for Injustice 2 Annual Continue Reading

Comic Review – Uncanny X-Men #1

X-Men comics are a daunting thing to comic book newcomers. The franchise has one of the most extensive mythologies in history. There have been as many as a dozen X-Men books being published at any one time every month. And there are literally hundreds of characters, heroes and villains, making Continue Reading

Review: “Marvel Knights” #1

By Dave Whiteman In 1998, after Marvel Comics had just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, writer and artist Joe Quesada, then part of the independent Event Comics, formerly editor-in-chief and now Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment, began work on a line of comic books that featured some of Marvel’s Continue Reading

Titans Episode Review S01: E05

It’s been an interesting road for Titans up until now. With eleven episodes planned for the season, Episode 5 — or “Together” — marks the closest thing to a “half-way point” the show is going to have. So how does that point fare? Well, it’s nothing spectacular, but it does at Continue Reading

Comic Review – The Green Lantern #1

When you think about it, Green Lantern is one of the more awkward superhero ideas in existence. It makes a little more sense if you consider it in the context of the first Green Lantern, Alan Scott, who was originally going to be Alan Ladd as a modern take on Continue Reading

Comic Review – Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #1

There is a long history of comic-book tie-ins being poor-quality products. For every amazing series like Tom Taylor’s Injustice: Gods Among Us that perfectly captures and expands upon the world of the television series, movie or video game it is based upon, there are a dozen like Malibu Comics’ Street Fighter or Continue Reading

Titans Episode Review S01: E04

Titans is quickly becoming the television equivalent of potato chips; there’s no substance and it’s not very good for you, but it’s pretty tasty and I would definitely eat two family-sized bags in one sitting if DC let me. To that end, while Episode 4 of the series — titled “Doom Continue Reading

Titans Episode Review S01: E03

“Third time’s a charm,” or so they say, and the third episode of Titans, titled “Origins” makes a pretty solid argument in favor of that. DCUniverse’s premier “belle-of-the-ball” had a bit of a rocky start, but it seems to have, thankfully, begun its upswing. Episode 3 still has a few Continue Reading

Exploring The Multiverse #007 – Board of Mapping

Episode #007 – Board of Mapping is RATED T for strong language. In this episode Harvey meets with John Chambers and James Barefield about their Kickstarter project: Board of Mapping! Board of Mapping is a non-premium mapping solution to tabletop role playing games for players that prefer not to play Continue Reading

Comic Review – Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider #1

Across the multiverse, a story is played out continually. An intelligent teenager is bitten by a mutated spider. The bite gives them the proportionate strength and speed of a spider as well as an adhesive touch and a precognitive awareness of danger. They go on to use their new powers Continue Reading

The Hellish History of Hellboy

In 1991, comic book writer and artist Mike Mignola created a concept drawing of a demonic creature, that he called Hellboy, for a pamphlet for the Great Salt Lake Comic-Con. Although it bore little resemblance to the current incarnation that many fans now know and love, nevertheless it was the Continue Reading

Titans Episode Review S01: E02

After the series premier of Titans, I was cautiously optimistic about the trajectory of the show. It definitely had room to improve, but it seemed to get off on the right foot. Episode 2, titled “Hawk and Dove”, is another step in the right direction, albeit while still stumbling on Continue Reading

Comic Review – Stranger Things #1

Fans of the NETFLIX original series “Stranger Things” get a new insight into the experience of the character of Will Byers, who was mysteriously transported into the Upside Down by the demonic creature, which would be known as ‘the Demogorgon.’ The latest 4-issue limited series from Dark Horse Comics is Continue Reading

Titans Episode Review S01:E01

It’s fair to say that DC Universe’s Titans comes with a lot of baggage. It’s the streaming service’s first truly exclusive content – meaning its success or failure will likely shape the production of most, if not all, of the in-house projects down the line – and it’s safe to Continue Reading

Comic Review – Lucifer #1

NOTICE: The management of The Multiverse would like for it to be stated that we do not support the activities of the being commonly known as Lucifer, Satan and/or The First Of The Fallen. We are not members of his fan club, although he’s apparently responsible for most of the Continue Reading

Comic Review – Cursed Comics Cavalcade #1

Over-sized comics were a treasured rarity back in the good ol’ days of comic books. It was one that DC Comics attempted to make into a regular thing with the publication of the first 80 Page Giant in 1964. Though these specials often reprinted a lot of older material, they Continue Reading

Comic Review – What If? Spider-Man #1

While never a long-running success, the What If? series of comics has proven to be one of Marvel Comics’ most persistently published properties. From 1977 to 2015, the series has seen 12 different volumes devoted to the idea of exploring the alternate realities spinning out of classic Marvel stories. Some Continue Reading
