Uncanny X-Force #1 Review

By: Rob Gruszecki

 

             The Uncanny X-Force, initially spearheaded by a now docile school headmaster with claws and featuring the likes of a chimichanga devouring, fourth wall breaking lunatic and a three-brained hyper-thief has disbanded. Now in its place there remains the likes of a Psychic ninja with light saber hands and a recently annulled weather-wizard with a fancy new haircut. As these angry ladies with some aggression to work off travel to a strange club where a new drug has reared its hive-minded head and multi-limbed dealer, we are taken on a trip with explosions, excitement, dwarves recently returned from a vacation to hell and punching… lots of punching.

Bedlam #3 Review

Bedlam #3 Review

By: Rob Gruszecki

 

            Madder Red, a psychotic killer, terrorized the streets of bedlam for years, murdering countless people in cold blood without the hint of letting up. The deranged maniac then went through a twisted series of experiments and surgeries in an effort to rehabilitate and reintegrate him smoothly into society. This is the story of Fillmore Press, what remains of the sadistic murderer, heavily medicated, and set forward as an ongoing study of the concept of malevolence.

Batman #16 Review

Batman #16 Review

By: Rob Gruszecki

 

            Over the years we have been treated to a slew of Batman stories featuring members of what is commonly known as the Bat family. This family, consisting of those who have taken up their own cowl in an effort to carry on the legacy of the Bat, feature the likes of Nightwing, Batgirl and an ever increasing number of Robins. This particular brand of justice has even incorporated itself globally. Having fought alongside and even been trained first hand by the rich playboy who started it all, these crusaders have extended their own reach to absorb even more into their cause. This web connecting them all seeps into the history of Gotham and threads tied to the rest of the DC shared universe help perpetuate even more stories, characters and subsequent ‘families’.

Saga #9 Review

Saga #9 Review

By: Rob Gruszecki

 

            The inhabitants of Landfall and its orbiting moon Wreath have been at odds with each other as long as the rest of the galaxy can even remember. The ancient mystics residing on Wreath as ‘Moonies’ battle with the winged soldiers who call Landfall their home and due to the fragile nature of the destruction of one resulting in sending the other out of orbit, the entire war has been ‘outsourced’ effectively bleeding the conflict across the galaxy to infect and fester everywhere it reaches. In classic Shakespearean fashion Saga pits two warriors from opposite sides against one another only to harvest love between them. In this instance we have Marko and Alana as our key players. This love blossoms into their subsequent defection from their posts and a child birthed into refugee status on a distant planet called Cleave. This child is the oft narrator of the series, Hazel. What follows involves interference from a bounty hunter with a cat sidekick able to identify lies flawlessly and in spoken English, a race of bureaucratic, robot, royalty with televisions for heads, a horrific spectral young babysitter who’s waist up is all that remains, a horrendous giant with nothing to hide, rocket ship forests and an arsenal of weapons, magic and mechanical alike, that put your D&D imagination to shame.

Savage Wolverine #1 Review

Savage Wolverine #1 Review

By: Rob Gruszecki

 

            On a perfectly standard S.H.I.E.L.D geological cartography mission into the Savage Lands, a transport vessel comes across a strange rock face on the side of a mountain. Upon this discovery, computer and system malfunctions ravage the ship’s interface and it is brought down to the jungle floor like your average heap of metal attempting to hover in the sky of its own accord without the training wheels of thrusters or stabilizers or any other number of technical jargon that keeps imaginary ships suspended in mid-air so well. Amongst the unfortunate crew is a number of cannon fodder S.H.I.E.L.D agents and Shanna the She-Devil, dressed ever so appropriately for a routine mapping operation. 8 months later we find ourselves much deeper into the mysterious Savage Land as natives perform what I could only imagine is tradition amongst the indigenous tribes of a dinosaur-infested island when a mysterious beam of light explodes off in the distance.
