Man oh man, this is quite the comic book fan weekend! Not only did the Justice League movie come out — which I very much enjoyed — but we’ve got the Punisher on Netflix! I’ll be watching that this weekend! And expect my Justice League review/list to go up on Wednesday!
Unfortunately, I didn’t read any Justice League or Punisher comics this week! Just normal stuff like Amazing Spider-Man and Mighty Thor! And Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Batman for an absolutely fabulous story!
I think it’s definitely safe to say I like Tom King’s work on Batman more than Scott Snyder. It’s really a shame that I was so cold to King when he started. I just didn’t like that Gotham/Gotham Girl stuff.

Honest Trailers is still going strong, it seems, and they finally got around to Spider-Man: Homecoming. It’s pretty funny.
I debated with myself whether or not I’d keep posting Honest Trailers in light of the sexual harassment claims against creator Andy Signore. That crap don’t fly. But then the rest of the Screen Junkies people aired this big apology, and I’m not going to hold the sins of one against the whole. If you disagree and think I should stop posting Honest Trailers, let me know. I’m not married to them.
There’s still a fancy new Spider-Man video game coming to the Playstation next year, and it looks pretty cool!
Problem is, I won’t get to play it! Boo! I gave up on console video games awhile ago and use just Steam and my PC. But this game is one of those gosh-darned exclusives! So unless something breaks and it comes to PC a few years down the line, I’m out of luck.
Though I’m not sure if it’s going to be a good game, yet. It looks cool, sure, but where’s the gameplay? What little we’ve seen in the past looks like a bunch of quick-time events. I’m slightly worried. But we’ll see! It’s got the Shocker, and I like that!
Happy Halloween! The most spooktacular holiday of the year is right around the corner, and if you’re reading this on Saturday, I’m right in the middle of some solid celebrations! I have two costumes this year: Walmart is selling giant animal mascot heads for only $20, so I snagged me a rabbit head! And then I’m going to a zombie party tonight! Should be fun!
But I also had comics to read! And they were pretty much spectacular across the board this week, I was amazed! I wanted to give everything a super high score! From Amazing Spider-Man to Detective Comics to Power Rangers! But I would be remiss if the final issue of the Slott/Allred Silver Surfer didn’t blow me away. Comic Book of the Week for sure!
Perhaps even Comic Book of the Year! I was worried they wouldn’t stick the landing, but oh man, Slott and Co. were saving something really, really special for this final issue. Something that pretty much tied the entire damn story together. My hat is off to the creative team of Silver Surfer. This was a masterpiece from beginning to end.

Ever have one of those weeks where work gets really, really busy and you just can’t read as many comics as you’d like? That’s me this week…and next week. And then it’s Halloween! At least we had some really good comics this week, from another stellar issue of Tom King’s Batman to a nifty Harley Quinn, drawing us ever close to the end.
Comic Book of the Week goes to the oversized Mighty Thor #700, which uses its anniversary status to tell some really neato tales!
It is with a heavy heart that I announce that I’m throwing in the towel with The Wild Storm. I really wanted to stick with the comic for the entire duration and really provide an outsider’s eye to the experience, but with the latest issue this week, every reserve of energy I had left to care has been exhausted. This isn’t the comic for me. I’m sorry if I’m disappointing anyone and I hope you’re all still enjoying The Wild Storm.
Meanwhile, I’m super enjoying Saban’s Go, Go Power Rangers. I didn’t get around to writing up a review for the new issue, but the series is spectacular!
