For this week's Extra Tuesday, Captain Nostalgia returns with a devilish Captain's Comic Log. This month he's taking a look at Marvel's 1984, "The Blue Devil." You may be familiar with this character from his appearance in DC Universe' Swamp Thing, but was his comic worth reading?
Even if you removed the dialogue from the pages, you could still "feel" what was happening in the story. Crott's use of color in storytelling is a long lost art that I wish modern-day comic artists would take the time to remember.
Recently, Nintendo released their latest mobile game, Dr. Mario. We haven’t seen a remake of the 1990’s classic since 2001’s Dr. Mario 64. So how is this latest Nintendo mobile game?
Several stories have been announced to launch DC Black Label, but one that caught our attention was Superman Year One by Frank Miller. Frank is no stranger to controversial, dark stories, that draw readers in and challenge the way they see a character. He did a great job with Batman year one which essentially redefined how people see the origins of the Dark Knight. However, the question becomes, does he do justice to the Man of Steel?
The latest devotional from Nathan Marchand and Eric Anderson has released, and it is full of geekiness and godliness. The chapters in the form of daily devotions are numbered from 1-42, and they cover everything from Justice league, Cain and Abel, to the passing of Stan Lee. We here at Geek devotions love to see the things in Geek culture that will point you back to God and Eric and Nathan do an excellent job of doing just that.
Recently Zondervan released the NIV, Starting Place Study Bible. As the name suggests, it’s supposed to be a study Bible to a young (in faith) believer who’s just now starting to really dig into and understand the Word of God. The question should be asked, though, is this a good start for someone?
Typically in these reviews, I talk about the cover art, story art, and the story itself. This landmark issue, however, poses some problems with this format. Much like the first issues of Detective Comics, this Giant-Size issue is composed of several stories that are not connected. With 10 different covers (10 main variants), 12 different writers, a rockstar list of artists; this truly is a celebration of the World’s Greatest Detective.
