I have a question, Comic Book Guy...

Hi, Comic Book Guy. Nice to meet you. Long-time comic book fan, once lapsed, now returned. For purposes of context, I feel obligated to point out that I have to sit down to pee. I hope you are well, particularly after the uproar and indignity you've experienced lately. Anyway, I have a question. Actually, many.

Review: Silent Hill - Homecoming

Apparently, somehow since the first game, this became necessary.

Sometimes I'll get a stray hair (I don't like the phrase 'wild hair') of an urge to take a close look at something old to others, but new to me. I really liked the first couple of Silent Hill games when they came out, but for some reason never got around to playing any of the sequels beyond that. My boyfriend bought Homecoming super cheap recently, and I had a chance to give it a go. In a word, ugh.

Review: Beyond the Black Rainbow

Beyond the Black Rainbow is either one of the most gripping film experiences you will have, or a confusing, overly-long and boring let-down. Either way, the end result will say more about your own mind rather than the movie itself.

Review: National Comic's 'Looker'

Just kidding.

Unlike those with corporate freebie connections, or those fortunate enough to work in a LCS, I actually buy everything I review here. And his artwork aside (see above), you didn't seriously expect me to put money in the pocket of a hate-driven, homophobic / Islamophobic militant Christian fundamentalist like Mike S. Miller, did you? Go forth and Google some of the horrifying beliefs he has. Made all the more disturbing by how completely civilized he can appear on message boards. Even if you're one of the people that will be 'drowning in a river of blood'.

DC has some interesting hiring practices though, don't they?

Review: Marvel Tales by Alan Davis

A three (arguably four) part ClanDestine story, Marvel Tales by Alan Davis begins through a 'stealth prologue' in Thor: The Truth of History. It then casts a wide, appealing net to draw readers in through Fantastic Four Annual #33, funnels them down through a sliding scale of interest (ClanDestine fans vs.  non-fans) in Daredevil Annual #1, and finally drips the remaining few out of Wolverine Annual #1. Dr. Strange is also utilized as a linking thread throughout all three annuals, acting (just as the title characters) in varying degrees of importance with each issue.
