Comic Book Reviews - January 31, 2018

It's an oddly populated Fifth Week of comics, as we see the return to DC's big event, two annuals come out, and I'm once again vexed by my feelings on a certain Marvel comic.

Dragon Ball FighterZ: Impressions for Newbs

So I’m not the best at fighting games. Soul Calibur? Love it; bad at it. Injustice? Enjoy it; bad at it. And now I can successfully add Dragon Ball FighterZ to that category of games I’m flat out bad at, but continue picking up the controller to keep playing. The thing that’s different about FighterZ, though, is that it actively wants to help me get better, something I’ve never really picked up in a fighting game. Thus, I’m here to tell you, yes you, that you will not regret picking this game up even if you’re bad at it.

Comic Book Reviews for January 24, 2018

Many comics this week, including the first Marvel book of 2018, a video-game adaptation, more Ninjak, and Doomsday Clock, which...well, yeah, it's definitely a thing.

Blue Nexus #78 - Sunset

Previously in "Blue Nexus": The war between mages came to an end, and several members of the Zanderia had to go their separate ways. As part of a means of getting back into a flow with the Zanderia, Kyle was tasked with going off-planet with Phoenix to solve an alien crisis; now, he has been tasked to stay off-world once more, but for a much different reason.

Blue Nexus - Dark Soul, Part 1: The Halls of Penetanon

           The waters of the Atlantic rippled beneath Brenda, leaving a small trail but a large wake behind her. She sliced through the Atlantic sky atop her red platform, formed with her magic, her vision locked squarely on her targets up ahead speeding away from the Bermuda Triangle on a speed boat.
            “You done yet?” Kyle, the Blue Nexus, asked in her ear through her communicator.
            “I’ve only just found them,” Brenda said.
            “Well, come on, hurry up so I don’t have to go to this stupid press conference,” Kyle said.
            Brenda rolled her eyes, but nevertheless smiled. She weaved her fingers through the air and two more red walls formed aside her while she continued to fly through the skies. She sped up a bit, closing in on the boat.

Comic Book Reviews - January 17, 2018

We've got an admittedly smaller week ahead of us, with just three comics to look at (would've had only two, but the premise of Ice Cream Man intrigued me to no end). And, once again, no Marvel books. It appears that this streak will end next week, as well the streak of small weeks. But, the benefit of smaller weeks means I have more space to talk about the comics. Let's jump right into things, shall we?

Comic Book Reviews - January 10, 2018

The new year is here and it's time to try something new around here as well! Rather than examining just one comic that may or may not relate to something relevant, like a movie or TV show, I felt, if I were to get back into writing about comic books, that I could take a bit of a simpler route and do little blurbs on books. But what books? Why, the books I pick up each week! So, welcome to the first rendition of my weekly comic book reviews!

Blue Nexus #77 - Ares and Artemis

Previously on "Blue Nexus": The Magus War came to its climactic conclusion, forever shaking the status of magic in the world up. Its conclusion rocked the Zanderia to its core. Sandy decided to go on her own quest to discover the limits of her abilities and how she will choose to her powers. Now, Kyle has to try and pick up the pieces from the end of the war and get back on course to being the Blue Nexus, hero of the Earth...and the galaxy.

Blue Nexus: Dark Soul - Prologue

The big moment drew nearer. Ken Masterson watched the Mystic Sven continue their small excavation into the remains of Magus Forest, hanging back a bit to try and slow them down while he thought of his plan. One wrong move would result in his death, or the world’s. Ken looked over at the leader, the man who wore a cloak and had fake markings running down his left and right arms, as well as tattoos all along his neck, touching his chin. Corbin Alkeste.
                Corbin eyed Ken. “What’re you slowing down for?”
                Ken rolled his sleeves up and shrugged. “Got a little tired.”         
                “Doesn’t matter,” Corbin said. “Keep going. We’re close, I can feel it.”

Blog Update: Winter 2018

So last year was a bit...sporadic. Quite different, I'd also add. There were notable omissions from this little blog here, as well as some heavy delays to some once-tightly scheduled publications, as well as a seemingly random schedule of releases when it came to some reviews or content in general. 2017 certainly didn't make it easy for me to get around to this, but after spending some time thinking about how to handle the blog moving forward, I think I know what direction to take things moving into 2018. And, if everything pans out like I'm hoping it will, then there's some pretty exciting stuff coming down the tube.
