When I look at a comic, I often see things as not an issue of being a serial story, I tend to view it more as an overarching story. It is for this reason, that I often see the large compilations as a more complete experience, and more indicative of the whole. So when I review the first issue of something, I often find it a good idea to revisit things later, after seeing more of the story. This brings us to issue 2 of this comic. I believe this will be the 4th time I have written about Chris Campana's work, does this live up to his previous efforts? Read on and find out.
I personally love comics. I think this is a product of my love of story-telling meeting my love of art. Comics are the perfect amalgamation of these two art forms. For me, finding a comic that I feel passionate enough about to write a post about is something special. However, it is even more special when the people behind the comic approach me to write about it. So, here we have an instance of the latter. What do I think of the comic? Read on and find out.
Some might remember my "Most Anticipated Movies" for 2013, this movie was number 12 on the list. Seems odd that it is this far through 2014, and I am just now getting around to reviewing this movie. Well, Not my fault, the movie was pushed back, and now we are here, and it is time to see if this movie was worth the wait, or if it really put the Sin in Sin City! Read on to find out.
The superhero movie renaissance is upon us. It seems that there is a new film coming out every other week that is somehow superhero or comic book related. Honestly, I'm perfectly OK with that. There are some stinkers in the list but there are also the gems, like this year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". Now we wind down the summer with Guardians. How did it do? Read on and find out!
I'm going to say here, that when I created my list of Most-anticipated Movies, this film managed to slip under my radar. I honestly don't remember it showing up in any of my perusals of this years releases. I will admit that had I seen the premise of this movie, as well as the people involved, it would have made it onto the list without hesitation. The question at hand now is... was it a good thing I didn't add it to the list, or was this exclusion a crime against cinema? Read on and find out.
Even when money gets so tight, I worry about paying the car loan, I still find a way to get out there and see the movies. In all honesty, the movies are one of the most simple joys in my life. In the theater, I find a sort of catharsis that is missing in many aspects of reality. Today, I went to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. A long-winded title, to be sure... but is this a movie to go ape over? Or is it just a rotten banana? Read on and find out.
I've been around the block a time or two on Kickstarter, and have seen my fair share of projects. After seeing a few mega-successes, and a couple major flops, I think I'd like to take a moment, and offer up some advice to prospective project runners. If you want a chance at success, follow these tips!
When the mood strikes, and I see a project that I find to be truly interesting, I tend to jump in and check it out. When things line up properly, I often get a chance to ask the project's creator a few questions that I can then post here. Being able to post these is a great honor, and I am glad to have the opportunity to present another one so soon after the last. Join me, as I delve into "Knight's Legacy: Awakening of the Pen Ddraig (Book I of III)"
I tend to spend an inordinate amount of time perusing Kickstarter, checking out various projects, and drooling over ideas much to rich for my wallet. The vast amount of creativity shining through warms my jaded heart at times, and at other times completely disgusts me. However, whenever I see that special project that needs a little push, I want to be there to direct people in the right direction. This, is one such project.
There are always times that I will head out to see a movie, not necessarily because I am terribly interested in seeing it, but because it lets me turn my brain off for a little while. Sometimes this leads to a wonderful experience, that borders on the transcendent. Other times, the experience is the sort of mind-numbing agony that guarantees that some of my brain cells will never operate in the same way again. So, is this an example of the former, or the latter? Read on and find out.
