Punisher: The Ghosts of Innocents

The Punisher’s harassment of the Kingpin finally overrides the amusement value of hiding the man the Punisher wants to kill. The criminal is thrown to Frank Castle, who executes him via train. This does not calm the ghosts. There’s a couple different ways to portray The Punisher: 1 – He’s a crazy psychopath that had a horrendously traumatic event happen and now he’s a cold blooded murder that schemes and plots to kill the worst people in the world using the most violent and explosive methods possible. 2 – He’s a crazy psychopath that literally sees the ghosts of his...

Invincible: The Ultimate Collection

This massive hardcover collects the first 13 issues of Robert Kirkman’s Eisner-Nominated super-hero, along with all the extras from the first three trade paperback volumes and even more on top of that! Invincible: The Ultimate Collection, Volume 1 is a can’t-miss for anyone who’s wanted to start reading Invincible, but needed an easier way to start from the beginning. I had the first 7 hardcovers before I gave up on comic books and when i came back to the industry as a fan, they called out to me to complete them, nay they taunted me with their uncompleted status.

Damage Control (1989 II)

The second Damage Control mini series in 1989, this one was much better than the already well received (by me at least) mini series that came earlier in ’89.  There’s a fun tie in to the “Acts of Vengeance” crossover that was happening, and an appearance of the 4th wall breaking She-Hulk, who at the time was under the impression she was a comic books character and would often break the fourth wall to comment to the readers about the things happening in the issue she was in, much like the modern take on Deadpool. McDuffie was back for the...

Snow Crash

One of Time’s 100 best English-language novels • A mind-altering romp through a future America so bizarre, so outrageous, you’ll recognize it immediately. Only once in a great while does a writer come along who defies comparison—a writer so original he redefines the way we look at the world. Neal Stephenson is such a writer and Snow Crash is such a novel, weaving virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility to bring us the gigathriller of the information age. In reality, Hiro Protagonist delivers pizza for Uncle Enzo’s CosoNostra Pizza Inc., but...
