Review: Fables issue 150 – “Farewell”

Vertigo released the final chapter of the Fables comic book in July. The series that started with the quirky idea of refugees from fairytales, folklore and nursery rhymes all living together in a community in New York City eventually turned into an epic that spanned dozens of mythologies, launched several spin-offs/mini-series, and had a literal cast of thousands (if you take into account all the wooden soldiers and background mundies, that is).

So how do you wrap up all the threads of a thirteen-year story and still answer many of the “So whatever happened to…” questions in a single issue? Simple: you give it at least a hundred more pages and turn issue 150 into Fables: Farewell, the 22nd and final graphic novel of the series.

Two Geeks and a Podcast #Eleven – The Magical Kingdom

We’re a little late, BUT WE’RE BACK!

After a turbulent month these Two Geeks are back in action recounting their tales of a Magical Kingdom where they Toured the Stars, met amazing talking animals, and celebrated their birthdays! It wasn’t all mouse ears and rainbows though as a couple dark clouds loomed over head… we’re fine though.

This week we also get into the element of competition at the game table and life to see if it’s a good thing to have or not and how it doesn’t matter what game you play, it’s always more fun with other people.

Movie Issues: The Faculty

This week the guys go back to school with Robert Rodríguez’s 1998s sci-fi horror flick, The Faculty. The teenage version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers mixed with some of The Thing. What we get is a rather fun creature feature with tons and tons of actors who have gone on to become huge stars. Over all a pretty fun flick. The guys also talk Star Wars and more dumping on WB and their “plan” for DC Comic films. Just another average week.  Read On

The Final Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Trailer Revealed

Posted by: |

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain marks the last time we’ll ever see a Metal Gear Solid game helmed by series creator Hideo Kojima.  Despite the now legendary falling out between Kojima and Konami, Kojima was at least allowed to make the final trailers himself. As such, the final trailer for The Phantom Pain is no exception to Kojima’s genius. It is a masterful piece of work that traverses the main line of Metal Gear Solid games (so essentially every game that is considered canon) which not only shows Big Boss’s progression from hero to villain, but even touches on the fate that Solid Snake narrowly avoided. But, in any case, I’ve rambled on far too long about the trailer, hit the jump to see it for yourself! Read On

Introduce The DC Universe – The Family Friendly Way

After a grueling day at work you return home. You are exhausted and all you really want to do is relax, then you feel the tug at your shirt. Your kid then asks one of the greatest questions possible “Da da, can we watch Batman?”

While the instant answer is yes, I then have to ponder the question: Which Batman should I allow my kid to watch. While there are certainly plenty of DC Animated options – there are fewer options in the Family Friendly version. You certainly wouldn’t want to pop on Batman vs Robin or Batman: Under the Red Hood. Luckily DC Animated and Warner Bros has heard the call and has some pretty decent options.
