Comic Book Review: Star Wars: Darth Maul – Death Sentence

Darth Maul Death Sentence Tom Taylor Comic Book Review: Star Wars: Darth Maul – Death Sentence Darth Mauls return to the Star Wars universe was met with much controversy. The character had other actually come back a few times in the EU. Once as a clone who fought Darth Vader to the death because he saw him as an unworthy Sith Lord. Once as a personality PROXY used to fight his master Starkiller in FU1. But his return in Clone Wars Season 4 was the first time the original Maul from Phantom Menace would be coming back in a canon story. I personally had the same thought process as when Jason Todd came back. If they manage …

Artist Spotlight: WarHawks’ Joel Gomez

Artist Spotlight: WarHawks’ Joel Gomez

Weapon150color Artist Spotlight: WarHawks Joel Gomez

I first met Joel Gomez about 2 years ago at Long Beach Comic Con.  He had his own table and he was selling his art prints.  My friend and I wanted the same print so Gomez hooked it up and gave us a great deal on the prints.  Ever since then I started checking out his deviant art and noticed how awesome his work is.  At almost all the cons I attend, I always see his table and stop by.  Even if it’s just a quick “Hello!”

Gomez is a comic art veteran working for companies such as DC and Wildstorm.  …

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 …

 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 (Dardevil), …

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?

Comic Book Review: X-O Manowar Volume 1

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 …

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 …
