Uncanny Avengers #3 surprised me. Rick Remender is a real talent and I’ve known this since I started reading FEAR…

Goddamn this book was good! Since the launch of JLD the potential for the magic Justice League has been unrealised….

I start this review (my first at the iFanboy site) by saying that I was blown away by the quality…

March 31, 2016 5:35 pm This piece of garbage of a film was so juvenile and puerile that I actually felt sick at several points in the film. The most sickening moment for me was the titular Batman v Superman battle where we got to see what every 12 year old without a clue thinks comics is all about: who would win in a fight between... None of it was earned and I feel really sorry for people who identify these two monoliths of joylessness with Batman and Superman. I came home after the screening and opened up All-Star Superman and breathed a sigh of relief: joy, colour, hope, it was all there. Yes I should have known better than to give my money to WB and Hack Snyder, but I did, and I regret it. Never again! Fuck this movie. Jeremy Irons is a snappy dresser and his wardrobe is the best thing about the film.

November 30, 2014 3:40 pm Not sure what you mean by the 'college freshman philosophy style', aside from being incredibly condescending, but Multiversity is a project that has been stewing in Morrison's head for a long time and he has had the time to put a hell of a lot into this one issue. I've read it a few times now and it is incredible just how much the book changes with every read, how many little details emerge. If you take issue with something in the book please shout it out, don't put up a lazy comment about how people are over-analysing a text, which is precisely what literature and film and comic studies are all about, if you don't like insight and analysis you can enjoy your parallel earth characterisation without all the rest of the material and Easter eggs, that is the beauty of talents like Morrison and Quitely, they can be read on many different levels.
September 2, 2013 6:34 pm I just literally swallowed a big lump in my throat. This is heartbreaking. I am in shock. Without a doubt iFanboy has been the site that I have come to the most for the past few years, it has become a daily ritual, one that is gone. Sob. On a brighter note; thanks for all the work guys! Living in Australia and reading most of my comics digitally iFanboy was the place I would come to to talk comics and hear about stuff I wasn't reading but should be. I run every Monday with the pick of the week podcast in my ears, and will continue to do so. You guys have enriched my life and energised my comics reading habit, my wallet hates you but I love you. All the best in the future!!!
August 29, 2013 8:15 am Agreed. Holy shit that was a great story! I loved seeing the evolution of Hattie as a character, and that final page, wow!
August 28, 2013 8:57 pm Totally agree
August 26, 2013 8:17 pm Why is Mike Deodato getting so much work on the Avengers titles? His art is the only let down so far in what has been a stunning run on both series (I will concede that a couple of Kubert's pages weren't great either but overall his issues were good) I guess he must be the only one who can pump out the pages in time, that doesn't mean they're any good though.
August 22, 2013 7:03 pm @deepspacesamurai I am a huge fan of Jim Lee, I have his artbook and shelled out for the Batman Hush Absolute to get that run in gorgeous oversized glory, and I grew up reading his X-Men stuff in the '90's but I think that with this new Superman title he has lost the love. If you compare the stuff he is putting out today to his Batman Hush work the difference is stark. As for the others, just look at any panel drawn by Frank Quitely and take in the level of detail and care he puts into his work. Just putting in hard work doesn't make a good artist but with Quitely his talent is amplified by his attention to detail.
August 22, 2013 2:30 am Three issues is enough time to give the team a chance. It seems that not even the great Scott Snyder can write a great superman story, and where the help did Jim Lee's talent go?
August 20, 2013 7:51 pm If you want to read Infinity, which is a very daunting task for someone not versed in Marvel lore, start with Hickman's New Avengers and Avengers and have Wikipedia ready for the many things he references that you won't understand. That is the way it goes with these universes, Wikipedia has made the universes that much more accessible.
