A Timeless Tale of Star-crossed Love and… Drugs?

The cover art for Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever #1

Love it, hate it, or could care less, the original 1960’s “Star Trek” series was without a doubt, a very compelling concept that was far ahead of its time and has since captured the imaginations of generations. Even if you’re not a fan, there are a handful of episodes of every Trek series that are so good that they transcend the science fiction genre and enter the realm of timeless stories that will probably be studied by college students of the 23rd century.

“City on the Edge of Forever” was one such episode.

Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy” hits theaters this August, but just like the characters in the trailer, you may be asking yourselves: “Who?”

The Batman You May Not Have Read But Should

As humans one thing that we seem to love is lists. There are consumer reports buyer’s lists for products, list of “top places to live” and countless top 10 lists for movies, music and books at the end of every year. A couple of weeks ago I came across another of many top 10 lists that I have read detailing the best Batman stories of all time. One recurring theme that they all have is that the books on them are pretty much the same. Sure, the order may differ a little bit, but without variance you will find “The Killing Joke”, “The Dark Knight Returns” and “Year One” on each and every one of them. This got me to thinking, if I eliminated all of the usual suspects what would my top Batman stories consist of?

Thanos Annual Review: Wait, there’s an ongoing series?

thanos

The Thanos Annual that came out this Wednesday, May 28. Firstly, I loved that it was written by Jim Starlin and drawn by Ron Lim, the pair that brought us the original “Infinity Gauntlet” series. Anything Thanos-related by those 2 and I’ll pick it up.

The story starts off years ago when he possessed the cosmic cube but was defeated by Captain Marvel and ended up in Hades with Mephisto. Then Thanos’s future self while in possession of the infinity gauntlet uses the time gem to send an avatar of himself to the past and informs his past self what is to come of his future and it sets up a new original graphic novel coming out soon- Thanos: The Infinity Revelation.

Black Hive Comics and More is becoming Superhero Hive.

This is a good thing for everyone, and here’s why…

Universe of Superheroes opened in Riverside more than 22 years ago, and for a long time it was the best, most adored comic shop in Jacksonville, well at least to me and a bunch of other fellow customers.  Due to a variety of reasons Universe hit a bunch of snags about a year and a half ago, until Nick Wagner stepped in.
