UncannyAvengers01 001a 675x1024 Comic Book Review: Uncanny Avengers Volume 1

Oh pre-Marvel NOW Rick Remender, where for art thou? Once you were my favorite writer with titles like Venom and Uncanny X-Force knocking it out of the park each and every issue, you gave us fun and emotional stories, great character interaction and one of the most gut wrenching comic books I’ve ever read, so what the hell happened to you?! The first story arc of what’s supposedly the flagship book of the Marvel NOW initiative is so full of nonsensical bullshit Im surprised it wasn’t by Dan Slott!

The story begins with Wolverine holding a funeral for Charles Xavier, who recently died …

Spring Long Beach Comic Con Recap 2013

 IMG 32431 Spring Long Beach Comic Con Recap 2013

Long Beach Comic Con (LBCC) is securing its spot as my favorite convention!

LBCC has two shows, a one day event and smaller show in spring.  The other one is their big 3 day event in fall.

The spring event was this past Saturday and the experience was great.  Sure, there’s not as many vendors as WonderCon or Comikaze but I got to talk to more artists and discuss….art.  My brother and I are currently working (hopefully revealed in 2 months) on a shirt project so we made the rounds and asked them for critiques.

First up was David Mack

I’m sure all of you guys are familiar with the picture above, “No Laughing Matter.”

The photographer behind that epic image is my friend Gaunt.  I don’t remember how long I’ve known him but I remember  chatting with him on Spawn message boards.  He actually already released the image several months before it went viral.  Everyone on the boards was really impressed with it and congratulated him on his great work.

I chatted with Gaunt to talk about his projects, artistic choices and why he loves Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Nerd Society (NS):  How did you get into photography?

XO TPB VOL 001 658x1024 Comic Book Review: X O Manowar Volume 1

A comic book I constantly kept hearing about was X-O Manowar. All my friends kept going on and on about how awesome it was, that it was fantastic and interesting sci-fi/superhero comic and so on and so on. So I decided to pick up the first trade which has the first 4 issues, and I was blown away. Mostly because I usually hate superhero comics in space, unless its a comic book about a sc-fi series along the lines of Star Wars or Mass Effect, a sci-fi comic almost always brings me to the brink of failing into a coma from sheer boredom, …

Movie Review: Iron Man 3 (Minor Spoilers!!!)

1 1024x435 Movie Review: Iron Man 3 (Minor Spoilers!!!)

Iron Man 3 was easily my most anticipated film of the year, bar none. After the surprising success of the Avengers on both a critical and commercial level, I thought Marvel could do no wrong. The marketing behind Iron Man 3 plus the many trailers and interviews all gave me, and probably me other people, the idea that it would be a much more serious film and it would have a major character arc for Tony Stark.

Director Shane Black and company all talked about how Tony would be left with nothing, how he would have to go underground in order …

bane Cool Art: Super Emo Friends Chat With J Salvador

I was passing by J Salvador’s booth at WonderCon and heard several laughs and “awww’s” from attendees.  I looked at more closely why his Super Emo Friends booth was getting a reaction and I got it right away.  Salvador’s artwork was great and the concept behind it was funny and cute.  I talked to Brian at the booth.  I thought he was the creator (he’s also an artist) but he said he was helping out his friend, J Salvador.  It turned out the pieces were selling so well that Salvador had to make a quick run to a store to get more …

New Thor Poster

New Thor Poster

Here’s the new poster for the Thor sequel. Overall, it’s descent. I feel that he should be wearing his helmet, but I understand that they need to show Chris Hemsworth’s dreamy face to sell tickets.

And, the pose doesn’t look very appealing. I can’t figure out what he’s doing, besides holding his Hammer. The photoshopped hands doesn’t help either

I know I’m nit-picking, but this is how he should pose!
