Oliver

Award-winning screenwriter GARY WHITTA (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Book Of Eli) teams with celebrated artist DARICK ROBERTSON (Transmetropolitan, HAPPY!, The Boys) for a new take on a literary classic—with a futuristic twist. OLIVER re-imagines Charles Dickens’ most famous orphan as a… I like the concept but from the publication schedule of this series, it looks like we’re only going to get the four issues that are already published. This is a post apocalyptic story that has some cool story beats, but it just sorta ends with a goofy ass cliffhanger in the fourth issue and it’s been...

Star Trek, the Next Generation 365

September 1987. With the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gene Roddenberry somehow managed to recapture lightning in a bottle. The strange magic that for more than two decades had sustained Star Trek, the cancelled space fantasy that refused to take a curtain call, had apparently blessed its successor as well. It was off-network syndication that had transformed the original Star Trek from a qualified flop to an undeniable success story, and it was first-run syndication that made this new incarnation a full-fledged hit on the small screen; in fact, it was the highest-rated dramatic series in syndication during...

Amazon.com: Iron Man: Armor Wars II

When industrial villains Kearson DeWitt and the Marrs twins seize control of Tony Stark’s central nervous system, he finds himself paralyzed during a battle with the Living Laser. John Romita Jr’s Iron Man art is fantastic. The story doesn’t really do it for me, but I’m all about that art. Buy On Amazon!
