Here There Be Monsters, Part One: The Legion of Monsters, #1
 I'm in the middle of a short Monster-comic binge-read, dipping in and out of THE MONSTER OF FRANKENSTEIN and WEREWOLF BY NIGHT OMNIBUS, and I decided to pick up this Marvel Monster magazine on Comixology. (The other two books will be reviewed in due course...

To Infinity...AND BEYOND!!!, Part Twenty-Three: Marvel: The End
 What better place to end this current round of INFINITY books than with... MARVEL: THE END ....?  Back around the turn of the millennium, Marvel was doing a lot of THE END-branded books. They were usually a mini-series, sometimes a one-shot, that depicted ...

To Infinity...AND BEYOND!!!, Part Twenty-Two: Guardians of The Galaxy: Road to Annihilation, Vol. 1
 Drax and Gamora take center stage in this pre-ANNIHILATION collection.  "I'm getting sick of these Infinity Gauntlet books I've been binge-reading!", he said, as he looked at the life-size Infinity Gauntlet perched on the top shelf of his desk. Yes, all go...

To Infinity...AND BEYOND!!!, Part Twenty-One: Thanos: Infinity Abyss
 That lovable scamp Thanos is at it again.... ...this time, recruiting Gamora, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Pip the Troll, and Doctor Strange to help him battle some escaped Thanos clones. What could possibly go wrong?  If you're Thanos, and you've sworn off...

Kid Lobotomy, Volume 1: A Lad Insane
 Old-school Vertigo Weirdness.    Peter Milligan's SHADE THE CHANGING MAN was a must-read book back in my younger days, and his X-FORCE run is a subversive legend, but as I've grown older, I've lost touch with his work. Therefore, I was very excited when I ...

To Infinity...AND BEYOND!!!, Part Twenty: The Infinity Watch, Volume 2
 The watch winds down.   THE INFINITY WATCH, VOLUME 2 immediately lost points with me by abandoning the idea of this being a complete two-volume reprint of WARLOCK AND THE INFINITY WATCH. The first volume left off with issue #23, and this one starts off wit...

Dark Nights: Metal: The Deluxe Edition
Noisy. Nonsensical. Overblown. Fun...?  I just finished DARK NIGHTS: METAL: THE DELUXE EDITION , and I have almost no words with which to describe the plot to you. Did I understand it...? Eh, vaguely. The story itself is all bluff and bluster, but, like a g...

Dark Days:The Road to Metal
 Or "Dead End: The Road to Nowhere".  I'll preface this review of DARK DAYS: THE ROAD TO METAL by saying that I'm not much of a fan of Scott Snyder's writing. From AMERICAN VAMPIRE to BATMAN to ALL-STAR BATMAN, with many other projects in-between, I have ne...

To Infinity...AND BEYOND!!!, Part Nineteen: The Mighty Thor: Blood and Thunder
 In which my collector's OCD gets the better of me, and I am forced to reread a book that I loathed the first time around.  I first read this collection in August of 2011. My thoughts on it then were as follows:  " I've been
reading comics for 38 of the 40...

To Infinity...AND BEYOND!!!, Part Eighteen: The Infinity Gauntlet Box Set
 Come for the book reviews, stay for the slipcase review.  Physically, this is a beautiful package; Just as good, if not better, than the SECRET WARS BOX SET. The box has a hinged door, with a magnetic clasp, that holds twelve hardcovers with a mural that r...
