It has been an eventful season this year on HBO’s top rated drama Game of Thrones. The show is based on the epic fantasy saga A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin and each volume of the series is massive. I have had the pleasure of reading the five novels currently composing the collection and eagerly await the next. However, despite having read the books (and I’ve heard other bibliophiles say the same thing), I had no idea where the producers of the show were going to take us for the season three finale. In fact, the show has managed to please those who have read the series just as much as those who have not. But the events of the third book, A Storm of Swords, are something of a delicate matter for those that truly care about this story. How well did HBO do on bringing these events to the screen?

While all the other geek sites out there are reviewing the new comics coming out from the big names, I thought I’d take a look at what some of the smaller publishers brought us today. And I thought I’d start with something of a curiosity. Next Testament from BOOM! is written by Mark Miller (a writer that needs no introduction to regular comic book readers) and Clive Barker. You may have heard of Mr. Barker. He’s the guy who wrote The Hellbound Heart which would go on to become Hellraiser. So what vision does this duo bring to us? Continue reading

He we are again ladies and gentlemen. Another tale of superpowered beings has been read, thought over, and judged. Corrupts Absolutely?, edited by Lincoln Crisler, has been a delight so far and I am sad that other projects have kept me from reviewing a story every day recently. Luckily, I got a chance to sit down and read “Sabre” by Anthony Laffan this evening. Anthony is a game designer from western Massachusetts and this entry into an anthology is his first published work. So how does he do in a world populated with some of the most powerful superhumans this side of Krypton? Lets find out. Continue reading

Last month I reviewed a brand new title from Aspen Comics. Jinri #1 was an amazing debut issue that had me hooked from the very beginning and I would be remiss if I didn’t follow up with the sophomore issue. This is the first time I have reviewed it under the new scoring system though, so how does it stand up under closer scrutiny? Continue reading

Coming this week to DVD and Blu-Ray is Beautiful Creatures, the film adaption of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s young adult novel by the same name. It falls into the realm of supernatural romance, not really my kind of thing, but I enjoy all movie types as long as they are good. However, films such as this have irked me since Twilight first came out for their complete and total lack of originality. Yet I am bound by duty to bring you a fair review of this film and give you you opinion: buy, rent, or pass. Continue reading
