A spoiler-free Captain America: Civil War review

Want the shortest version of this? Captain America: Civil War is excellent for fans of comics, super heroes and action films. However, if you don't know what S.H.I.E.L.D. is or how it's different from Captain America's shield, you may find it hard to keep up with this one. Indeed, if you can't accept that it's perfectly reasonable for two World ...

Oh how they’ve changed…

An epic post from Comic Book Resources, outlining all the various teams the X-Men (and spin-offs) have constituted since the 60s. I'm not that old, but I remember from number 3 onwards. Such happy memories of hours spent reading x-books (even when they were so god-awful back in the 90s) and trying to figure out ...

Review: Ant-Man

So, Ant-Man was excellent. Like a cross between Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers. Fun, action-packed and exciting. Deep and meaningful cinema it is not. But do you go to see a Marvel flick to explore the meaning of life, or to watch the characters you grew up reading about, up on a big screen, ...

Shut. The Front. Door.

Marvel just announced a whole heap of magnificent superhero movies, all the way up to 2019. If that sentence doesn't fill you with glee, keep on walking and find a blog about trainspotting or something. I caught the end of the liveblog, but in just a few minutes, they announced the following: Captain America: Civil ...

Now I don't hold myself up as an arbiter of taste, but I do enjoy reading about what other people have enjoyed - so maybe you'll find something interesting in this list... Favourite film of 2013: That would have to be a tie between ...

Review: Avengers Assemble #21

As I'm stuck in bed this week, I've caught up on a fair bit of reading. However, the focus has been firmly on comics, as anything longer and I tend to nod off. Oh, the glories of Tremadol. One of the highlights of my week was Avengers Assemble issue 21, featuring Spider-Woman, Spider-Girl and Black ...

MacPsych Must Read: Guardians of the Galaxy

It's been a while since  had a comic-realted update on here and, after catching up on some back-issues, I wanted to share some more recommendations. Surprising myself, I'm loving "Guardians of the Galaxy". I remember reading reprints of the very original series, but this is quite a departure from that. It has all the hall-marks ...

Review: Uncanny Avengers 9

In the recent reshuffling of Marvel's headline titles, Uncanny Avengers was the title that had the best start. The Red Skull using a piece of the dead Prof. Xavier's brain to turn the general public into hate-filled Nazis? Rogue and the Scarlet Witch on the same team and threatening to knock six bells out of ...

Time-travel rumour-mongering

Over on Newsarama, they're rumour-mongering that Marvel is setting us up for a sequel-of-sorts to Civil War. Except this time, it'll involve time travel. I like what Newsarama is rumouring. (Yes, this is a proper use of the word. Which I think we can all agree is a perfect cromulent word.) Anyway, imagine heroes beating ...
