“Thing” is kind of a harsh name. It’s what you call something when you don’t know what else to call it. Geek culture has given us six famous characters named “Thing.” Can you remember them all?
It is not a carved pumpkin in the traditional sense, but Redditor wizardtlg‘s Fantastic Four’s The Thing creation is more fantastic than the movie ever was. And, you may correct me if you think otherwise, but this version of The Thing will probably scare the wits out of all the other carved pumpkins you see this [...]
Taking the opportunity of the Christmas period to catch upon my comics reading (and supplementing this with fanfic when I reached the bottom of the stack), I must confess that I re-read Jonathon Hickman’s Fantastic Four and FF (Future Foundation) numerous times. Although I have raved bout this particular run of the FF numerous times [...]
Well, now we have seen what we all knew to be the case, Johnny Storm the fabled Human Torch is alive and well. Not that we couldn’t see that coming, but I am pleasantly surprised as to how the youngest of the original Foursome was able to survive. Of course, if you have read Fantastic [...]

Of course, the Captain won, maybe Pete has softened [...]
You know, I’ve been saying to all my friends for years now, “Why don’t they make a hi-def TV with my favorite Marvel comic book characters on it?” Guess what? They’ve finally done it.It’s like the peanut butter and chocolate combination of this century. That’s right, Marvel Comics has teamed up with RTC23, to release [...]
Someone who empathises with Deadpool is in control of the Marvel Universe? I fear for us all.
I have to eat my words. I haven’t read any of this weeks comics yet, but I have caught up with what I missed last week. Specifically the latest issues of Nova and Guardians Of The Galaxy, among others. What did I say about no clear ending to the War Of Kings? Well, for me, [...]
Have you been reading the War Of Kings? So much attention has been paid to the Blackest Night and it’s prequel the Sinestro Corps War, that it has been easy to forget that Marvel have also been having a big cosmic crossover. And it rocks. I’ve been as guilty as anyone, I admit. However I [...]
