Horror comics (heck, Image Comics in general) weren’t really a thing I expected to be reading much of this year, given that Image has been somewhat lacking in recent years. Then I found cheap stuff on Amazon and the triple threat Warren Ellis-Declan Shavley-Jordie Bellaire took on Injection and here we are now. While Injection isn’t really a “horror” comic, today’s review certainly is. Have to squeeze a little something extra in for Halloween, right?

For as far as one could see, there was nothing but dark grey and black. The cliffs cut into the sky overhead as well. It had to be a quarry of sorts, then. There were a few black boulders that slowly came into view, constructing themselves from mere blurry polygons.
Not even steps made a sound. There was no crunching of the gravel below, nor the slight thump one heard when landing a foot on the ground.

The arc so far has been nothing short of amazing. Incredible action, stunning artwork, compelling plot twists, and a scope so big that this may affect the team for a very long time to come, even more so than "Forever Evil" did two years ago.

The latest of the "Dragon Ball" films finally sees its national DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital release today, and as such, I'm finally able to watch it and review it. I've been looking forward to this movie for quite a while. As a fan of Dragon Ball Z, why wouldn't I be? It's the return of Frieza, one of the best villains of the series and one of the most recurring ones. You can never put a good villain down, I suppose.
The premise of the movie, much like any "Dragon Ball" film, is fairly simple: Frieza's been resurrected and he's headed to Earth to seek revenge on Goku and Future Trunks. Obviously, Future Trunks is no longer around since he returned to the future several years prior, so Frieza settles for Goku. And so the war for the Earth is to be waged.

Then, we got glitches. And more glitches. And then some more bugs. And a forced-to-be-free DLC. And the lacking use of an era filled with potential for an AC story, and just give us the ambiance with little more execution. Match all that with a lackluster current day story line and...
Wow. "Syndicate" needs to be through the roof awesome. Though, that's not the vibe I'm getting from this series.

What a glorious situation. The world might be ending, he might be getting betrayed, and he was stuck driving some car to some city.

Well, Arrow is coming back for a fourth season tonight, and there is going to be a dramatic shift in terms of tone for the season, apparently. I'm completely fine with that. Last season tried to get super dark and edgy and instead, mixed with horrendous marketing and early spoilers, it ended up a colossal mess, the highlight of the season being the stuff early on with the various archers, anything with Nyssa, and Episode 18 "Public Enemies," which is actually one of the best Arrow episodes yet.
I bring up "Public Enemies" because of its impact on what we're taking a look at today. Around this time last year, I took a look at Green Arrow #35, in which the creative team behind Arrow took over the Green Arrow comic. You can check out the review here. When it first came out, I loved the book. After going over it again, and in a complete story?
Yeaaaahhh, not so much.

On this day last year I did my Top 10 Favorite TV Shows (click the link to check it out), so, this year I figure I would jump straight into the day with my Top 10 Favorite Movies, a list that is actually much harder to compile, as I watch far more TV series than I do movies. However, since I figured out what movies go where on the list, things haven't changed. The same definitely can't be said about my favorite TV shows, where I know things are different.
Of course, as this is a Top 10 list, it's a biased perspective about these movies. Also, these are not the Top 10 "Greatest" movies of all time, simply my favorites. So if there are weird choices you would never think would be on here, well, it's because they're my choice. I can promise you that my Top 10 is probably different than your Top 10.

Ah, October. The best month of the year. At some points, the busiest. At others, the most relaxing. I've gone into detail why October is the best, in an actual blog post, so I don't feel the real need to divulge the reasons behind it. Needless to say, though, the entertainment industry really starts to kick into gear around October/ November, and this year is certainly no exception.
In November, one of the most anticipated games (probably) ever is coming out in Star Wars: Battlefront and later this month we'll see a new Supergirl series, which I'm very optimistic about. I love Supergirl and this adaptation so far seems like it'll take good care of the character.
