Review: Apocalypse

Once again it’s time to check in with everyone’s favorite mutants: The X-Men, now in their ninth installment in the franchise with X-Men: Apocalypse. This time around we travel to the 1980s where the Egyptian god-like being En Sabah Nur, also known as Apocalypse, is resurrected and tries to take over the world and mold it in his image. Along with his four horsemen, he goes up against a new crop of X-Men mixed with our older crew from the past few films. What could have been a mess, and there are moments that are, turned out to be a rather fun X-Men flick and a worthy part of their franchise as a whole.

PREVIEW: Red Skull #1

Hushed whispers cut across Battleworld. One of the most vile villains in history still straws breath. But how can this be? He should be dead! And yet his legend grows even stronger.

Comic Issues Podcast #188 – Our favorite comics! (..this week..)

This week the crew is doing one big round-up of our favorite comics. (Our current favorites anyway. It changes a lot.)

First: since Marvel’s cornered the market on the best comic-book movies, is DC trying to take over TV? Can they do it?

Then we’re looking at some of the latest Marvel books to hit the stands. Magneto #9 continues his one-man, self-disgust-fueled vengeance run against, well, everybody apparently. Over on Uncanny X-men we’re taking bets on who’s going to inherit the school, once hologram-Xavier quits screwing around and actually tells us. Then we take a look at Death of Wolverine issues 1 and 2. What’s likely to kill Wolverine first: one of the thousands of people out for his blood? Or an infection from stabbing somebody who didn’t take a lot of baths?
