Immortal Iron Fist

Immortal Iron Fist #reflection

Immortal Iron Fist I’ve been reading The Immortal Iron Fist (Marvel Comics, digital release between 2012 and 2013) collection over the past few months. I read it in its five-volume run that covered close to 30 comics. To start off, when I think of Kung Fu epics and a warrior …

A New Hope #reflection

A New Hope My geekitude goes back a long way. You knew that already, at least if you have spent any time here in the past. I mean, I saw the original Star Wars in the theater (I even saw the Christmas special on TV). And this isn’t going to …

Art of War

Art of War #reflection

Art of War You know there is a pattern here. I have no clue what I want to spend some time exploring and don’t really think about it as I go through the readings I do all week. Except for those times when I do think about it but completely …

Punch with the Iron Fist

Punch with the Iron Fist Here I am, thinking of how I want to go into this, and I realize I am a bit remiss. See, I didn’t talk about the last in the series (this will change). But I talked about the others. But as I move into this …

Dr. Strange #marveluniverse

Dr. Strange Or what have you done with your life? We went to Dr. Strange recently. That feels a bit odd to say right now. Sure, we know it’s a movie and all that but still it is a strange thing to say. We went to a person like they …

Assault on our Sensibilities

Assault on our Sensibilities

Assault on our Sensibilities Comic book worlds are tied together through their different universes. At least that is how it used to be. Except when it comes to the big and small screen. Translating all of comic imagery and ideas into live action works seems to be just as difficult …
