Good Guys Always Win – A Look At Comic Book Heroes

Nope, I’m not talking about Chucky. I’m talking about the protagonists, the heroes, the virtuous, the righteous, and often times even the squares. If you’re like me, born in the 80’s but grew up in the 90’s, you thought that the good guys of your childhood were a little corny, a little dry, and the term goodie good also comes to mind. However, the majority of the time you were on their side because of course you didn’t want Rita Repulsa destroying Angel Grove with a crayfish monster. There wasn’t much nuance back then, it was very clear who was

Geek Speak: Still Outsiders

In today’s day in age, getting into comics is easier and less stigmatizing than ever. What with quarter yearly film releases of superhero movies. Streaming services. Apps to read comics. Funko Pop figures of every Deadpool variation. And loot crates, so you don’t even have to keep up with your geek culture, it’s processed and itemized for you. So, you’d think that the old issue by issue readers would rejoice in this renaissance, right? No, that is not the case. We are accused of gatekeeping, complaining about change, called racists, sexists, and homophobes. And why? Because we LOVE comics, we

Comic Review: Resurrected #3

Resurrected’s 3rd installment hits hard with the bombshell’s and has some fantastic character development for both older and newer characters. All of that is entwined with even more kickass action that we got hints of in the second issue and ends of a huge cliffhanger which genuinely shocked me and left me on the edge of my seat. Not literally I was laying down reading this comic but you get the idea of just how awesome this issue really was. Plot Resurrected is written and created by Christian Carnouche, with artwork and coloring by Crizam Zamora, Salvatore Aiala and, Cardinal

Comic Review: Resurrected Issue #1

Resurrected is a comic series that really gets the creative juices flowing. Whilst reading through the first issue I was constantly wondering what would actually happen if this was what our world was like and found my self-contemplating matters such as religion, faith, and morality throughout, which I’ll be honest I wasn’t expecting to do at 11 am on a Thursday morning. You take all those interesting ideas and questions and you wrap them up in a sci-fi thriller which still feels grounded in reality and add in a splash of classic “buddy-cop” action and you’ve got yourself a seriously
