Clone War Jedi

Clone War Jedi #reflection

Clone War Jedi Yeah, I’m back on a bit of a Star Wars kick again. This time I have been going through the first volume of the Clone Wars books (Star Wars Omnibus: Clone Wars Vol. 1 The Republic Goes to War (Marvel 2015)). This one is pretty big but …

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 …

Marvel 1602

Marvel 1602 #reflection

Marvel 1602 I haven’t been reading much for super hero comics or graphic novels lately. Wait, scratch that, reverse it. It is probably more appropriate to say that I haven’t been reading many of the titles from the big players in super heroes. The more recent titles from Marvel and …

Iron fist

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 …
