Mike Carey is a busy guy. He's currently scribing two new Vertigo series, FAKER and CROSSING MIDNIGHT. DC also just published his contribution to the Minx line, RE-GIFTERS, with a second, CONFESSIONS OF A BLABBERMOUTH to be released on September 12th. For Marvel, he's writing ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR and has a h
Last week seemed like total weak-sauce to me, so I waited for the head honcho, WORLD WAR HULK #3, to hit stands. It has and just like that, I'm back with more Hulk-y nonsense!
I didn't grow up reading Harvey comics. Unfortunately for me, WEB OF SPIDER-MAN and WHAT IF? were my drinks of choice before moving on to the harder stuff like SANDMAN, CEREBUS and SHADE THE CHANGING MAN. Sure, I had seen a RICHIE RICH comic or two. Maybe even a BABY HUEY. I can't say they interested me that
WORLD WAR HULK #2
The carnage continues in World War Hulk #2 and this mini-series turned summer event crossover is still going strong. If you're looking for a bunch of dialogue, well, there are probably t

These things come out every week?! Here's a look at the new World War Hulk (WWH) books.
WORLD WAR HULK: GAMMA CORPS #1
If these crossover books pan out, Hulk is going to be pretty busy for the next few months. He has already taken on Iron Man and Black Bolt. He's gone to the X-School to fight m
David Lapham is not new to crime comics. For the past twelve years, while not exactly prolific, the majority of his output has dealt with murder, drugs, robbery or some combination of the three. Throughout forty issues of the phenomenal STRAY BULLETS, he told a series of inter
As goes the Hulk, so goes all of the other Marvel titles. Why I decided to review every World War Hulk (WWH) tie-in is beyond me, but so far the event has paid off (mostly). Hulk still seems to be landing in Manhattan in all of these books, though, so I'm hoping this batch of books will do a little more than view that same event from various angles.
According to an article in Variety magazine, the film version of Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel Persepolis has been dropped from the Bangkok International Film Festival due to political pressure from the Iranian Embassy.
Chattan Kunjara Na Ayutthaya, the chief officer of Iran's Tourism Authority stated that "It is a good movie in artistic terms, but we have to consider other issues that might arise here." The main iss
I think Hulk wants to get the introductions out of the way. He's had a prologue and a comic with hardly any Hulk in it at all. He's ready to yell "GRAAAAA!" and punch Iron Man in the face. But then again, aren't we all?
