REVIEW: Superior Iron Man #1

(Marvel Comics, 2014)

Writer – Tom Taylor
Artist – Yildiray Cinar
Colors – Guru eFX

The inversion effects of the events taking place in Axis continue to wreak havoc upon the Marvel Universe turning heroes into villains and vice versa. Perhaps no other hero’s personality has been quite so adversely altered as Tony Stark; the once bright shining knight in high tech armor has pulled up stakes on his east coast digs and relocated to San Francisco, but that is the least of the changes that have turned Stark from hero to heel.

Tony has unleashed his perfection inducing Extremis 3.0 App on the populace of his new hometown, however, unfortunately for him Daredevil has made the exodus to the west ahead of him and DD does not like what Stark has planned for his city.

Leters by Clayton Clowes

After many hours spent reading his work on such titles as Swamp Thing, Thunderbolts, Inhumanity, Superman/Wonder Woman, Red Lanterns and Letter 44, I have come to a very sane and quite logical conclusion which is that Charles Soule is a super hero. Continue reading

REVIEW: ‘iHero’ #1

(Obscure Reference Comics, 2013)

Written by Luke J Halsall
Artwork by Graeme Kennedy
Lettering & Publshing by Gary Chudleigh

‘iHero’ has a premise I’m surprised I haven’t seen elsewhere.  The idea is simple: an amazing tool has been invented and released to the public – the iHero.  This device gives the user access to a large range of superpowers such as flight, teleportation, and super-speed, all of which we see right off the bat.

Cover by Ardian Syaf

This is what I picture when I think of the “noir” era of film, though I know there is so much more to it. So when I saw that Dynamite was releasing a book titled Noir, I was excited to get a look at it. Continue reading
