I was late to the comic book party. Though characters like Batman, Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Ninja Turtles have played an integral role in my life throughout my existence, I experienced them primarily through other forms of media, such as TV, film, and video games. For most of my life, this was enough.
Around the time Steff started reading comic books, I joined her as well. Between two omnibuses and a copy of All New X-Men Vol. 1, I began my quest to catch up on decades of stories I missed while keeping up with the current threads. Much of my journey was documented on In Third Person, right down to the moment where I bailed out from the scene.
The Shocker bookends another session of Spider-Man. In between, I take on a cool side-quest that puts the web-slinger in the role of private eye, and PEOPLE WON’T STOP CALLING ME!
With the busy season for video game releases in high gear, it’s inevitable that you’ll run into a scenario where you’ll end up with multiple games you want to play at about the same time. Generally speaking, this is awesome! For me, I got Spider-Man and Shadow of the Tomb Raider within a week of each other. But how do I split my time between a number of games at once? I don’t.
Just missed the launch day hype due to shipping issues, but the wall-crawler is always ready to save the day! Let’s take down the Kingpin in Spider-Man and let me get into the specifics on how the shopping process for this game has been stressing me out for over a year now!

At some point in your life, you’ve probably felt like your parents were evil. Maybe they didn’t buy you the toy you wanted, scolded you for staying out past curfew or disapproved of your current love interest. In the moment, they were the worst, but you usually got over it and realized your parents were usually just trying to do the right thing. But what do you do if they’re literally super villains? This is the conundrum that Alex, Nico, Gertrude, Chase, Karolina and Molly faced in the first arc of Runaways by Marvel Comics. This initial conflict would be the start of a great adventure for some of Marvel’s unlikeliest superheroes.
Thanks to a leak of the latest Marvel Preview, we got an advanced look of 45 new Marvel Comics titles that will launch as part of All-New, All Different Marvel. This will take place after the Secret Wars crossover event completes in the summer. Lots to say, so we’ll break it out into different franchises. Already covered X-Men and Spider-Man, so this time it’s everything else in the Marvel universe!

Shooting out of the gates with a first issue that sold almost a million copies, the return of Star Wars to Marvel was easily one of the biggest comic events of the year. Though I may be a lifelong fan of the original trilogy, this event would pass me by without a bat of an eyelid. In general, I don’t have an appetite for extended universe content. Sure, I played the heck out of Shadows of the Empire on the Nintendo 64, and there’s actually a copy of the Star Wars: Imperial Assault board game waiting to be played on my shelf, but most of what’s out there isn’t appealing at all to me.
If it weren’t for all of the positive buzz this new series has gotten of late, it would have continued to race through the galaxy without me. Crossing paths with issue #1 at Niagara Comic Con, I decided to spend a few bucks to see what the hubbub was about. To my surprise, it was the most fun I’ve had reading a single issue in quite some time.
