I was skeptical when I first heard of the new Lucifer show. It used to be rare to see a decent adaption of a comic book. For those who may not have known, Lucifer was a DC/Vertigo comic. The character was written/created by Neil Gaiman, basing him off of John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Mike Carey took over the character and wrote the entire 75 issue series run of the comic named after the main character, Lucifer. It was a phenomenal take on a classic tale. Continue reading
At its best, the Fantastic Four is written as a family. Not a group of superheroes like the Avengers or Justice League. Not a group who came together to combat a world that doesn’t understand them like X-Men, Teen Titans, or Young Justice. No. The Fantastic Four is unique in the world of comics.

Secret Wars 9 was possibly the last Fantastic Four comic that we’ll see. Marvel is on longer producing the FF comic. Rumor has it that it was a decree from Disney, since Disney does not own the movie rights for that particular franchise. To make matters stranger, Reed and Susan Richards are missing in the current Marvel line. The Thing is part of the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Human Torch is part of the Inhumans. It isn’t known how long it will be until Marvel prints another Fantastic Four issue. So this comic is the closest we’ll have to a final Fantastic Four comic, for the time being. Continue reading
Genesis 3, one of the biggest Smash Bros. tournament in the world, is coming to San Jose, California on January 15th-17th. Continue reading
