Review of ‘Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror Vol. 1’


Bogged down with bad stories and a misleading title, there is not a lot of Poe in here either, other than to joke about his alcoholism, the anthology is beating a dead horse.

Week 34 2014 | Part 3 | Comic Reviews


Last piece of the week. I hope everyone has plans for a wonderful weekend. Side note, this weekend is my birthday. I am turning 23 this weekend. I had plans but I just got my job back – was suspended due to a disagreeable secret shopper – but now that’s done and I can only bounce back from it. And I am. I’m happy and energetic, a little hungry, but overall, I’m a happy panda and I still get my Saturday off even know my birthday is on Sunday. I’ll take it. Anyway, to conclude this week’s comic books reviews I have Marvels Inhuman #3 where Queen Medusa takes charge and the final Star Wars issue by Dark Horse Star Wars #20.

Week 34 2014 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews

Following that is Teen Titans (2014 – ) #2 where the humor continues and the team figures out where they are needed most. And finally we have Worlds’ Finest #26. Helena and Karen have finally made it back to Earth-2 and the world is less pleasant than they remember causing tension between the sister-like characters.

Finishing up the week with two dynamic and character driven issues.

Week 31 2014 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews


Happy Wednesday! I only have one review for you today because my file this weekend at the comic shop was very small. So here we have The Flash #33 where Iris starts to take advantage of her friendship with Barry while he deals with a mass murderer lying in the police precinct.

Week 31 2014 | Part 1 | Comic Reviews


Hey there readers! I saw Guardians of the Galaxy and let me just say that it was awesome! But I digress, SuperCritic (still working on a code name) is here to bring you some reviews! It’s going to be a very small weak because I had four comics in my file. First up will be He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #13 where She-Ra, I mean Adora, takes on Hordak with her brother and makes a new friend named Swiftwind! Followed by Red Lanterns #33 where Guy meets up with a new friend and his faction must deal with a traitor in their midst.

Week 30 2014 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews


Continuing from the pages – I mean post – from Monday I continue to seek the justice in character and plot development! Just call me Super…okay, I haven’t come up with a cool name yet, but I’m working on it. First up is Batman and Robin #33 that leaps off the pages as it continues the epic story line that is ROBIN RISES. Followed by Aquaman #33 that has the neat ball of intrigue and mystery to tie together the two distinct plot lines. And last up is Justice League Dark #33, where Deadman takes center stage and amazes fans everywhere. Happy Wednesday all!

Week 29 2014 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews


Continuing from Monday I bring you comic reviews! I’m starting off today with my personal favorite Teen Titans #1, a comic that was cancelled and has been given an amazing re-launch, followed by Robin Rises: Omega #1, a double sized issue by P. J. Tomasi that recaps the journey between father and son and will begin a new journey as Batman faces off against the forces of Apokolips. And rounding up these reviews is Red Hood and the Outlaws #33 that really shows a softer side to the overly sexual powerhouse Starfire.

Week 29 2014 | Part 1 | Comic Reviews


Hey there avid readers! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I’m opening up this week much like most of my weeks in the DCU. First up is Superman/Wonder Woman #10, where Lois has finally revealed herself as the villain and it’s Lois versus Wonder Woman in the battle for Metropolis, followed by Superboy #33 that pulls off a convoluted mess by balancing on it’s amazing characterization. Happy Monday!
