Great Comic Issues: Fantastic Four 502

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. At least, they should be. Quite a few writers don’t agree and write them as constantly saving the world or defeating the villain of the week like a normal superhero team. Continue reading

Spectre #60 was one of the best comics that I’ve had the chance of reading. This comic was building for the past 59 issues. And I’m not kidding. John Ostrander (the writer) and Tom Mandrake (the artist) made something short of an absolute masterpiece. Ostrander, having a strong background in religious studies, was the perfect writer for the character that’s the wrath of God. Literally. His divine wrath. Continue reading

Why you should be reading Earth 2: Darkseid is an actual threat

I never saw the big deal about Darkseid before. Seriously. Never did. On Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, he existed to get slapped around by Superman. Continue reading
