Wizard World on Tour!

If you’re a comic fan, and let’s admit it you are, then you love going to the cons.  There’s nothing like being in a room full of people with the same passion that you have.  This is what really makes the comic conventions so special; it’s not the movie premiers or the exclusive toys.  It’s the passion in everyone’s eyes when they’re in a room full of that thing they love… or maybe that’s just me.

Upcoming Release: Zenescope’s FLY

Upcoming Release: Zenescope’s FLY

I know here at Comic Issues have we put a lot of focus on Marvel and DC Comics with some attention to Image and Dark Horse Comics. This is due dominantly to their longevity and marketing. We do however understand that these companies are a drop in the bucket compared to what is out there though. I am going to make it my personal mission to try and bring some of the gems from other companies to the readers here at Comic Issues.

Let us begin with an upcoming release from Zenescope Entertainment. In June 2011 they will present their series; FLY. FLY can be summed up in the following phrase, “What if there was a drug that gave you the power to fly? How far would you go to possess it?”

Top Picks in Comics for 4/6/11

Hello again my friends! I am your humble and awesome host, Anthony Silva of Comic Issues fame, back again with my week of reviews for 4/6/11.  It was a light week for me, so I took the opportunity to try out a couple books that aren’t usually on my list. They say variety is the spice of life, and if that’s true then you gotta shake things up once in a while to keep it fresh. This week I got three new books that I’ve known of, but haven’t taken the leap to try out until now.

Also a little special news for you, the Comic Issues cast will be attending Kingdom Con! It’s an great little gaming convention in sunny San Diego, Ca with all the heart of our last convention Anime Conji and half of the Black Butler cos-players! If you’re in the area or you’re looking for a reason to make a road trip, come by and spot us spinning dice and kickin’ some orc ass!

Top Picks in Comics for 3/23/11

I know I say it every week, but damn did I have a lot of fun reading comics this week.  What a week it was too, I couldn’t get out of my shop with less than 10 books.  Like last week, some big events have kicked off with Green Lantern and Ultimate Spider-man and I’m getting sucked right into them.  Unfortunately I didn’t get my Batman Inc. #4 since my shop had a shipping problem, but look forward to my review next week.  On the same page I got my Amazing Spider-man #656 this week so you’ll find my review for that book at the bottom.

And don’t forget to come back for this week’s Comic Issues Podcast.  Andrew and I will talk about Anime Conji, and the gang will be talking about some of the new and old releases from both DC and Marvel’s animation departments.

The Ultimate Showdown: Batman vs Superman

As mentioned on the Comic Issues Podcast, I’m a bit of a fan of the Batman Brave and the Bold TV series. I really appreciate the blend of both campy Batman and the Dark Knight. Well the ultimate showdown is almost upon us, as Batman squares off against Superman. Of course that pesky Red Kryptonite is to blame but this should be a pretty epicsode. (see what i did there)
