Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy is the first original content film from Marvel Studios since Captain America: The First Avenger, which came out all the way back in 2011.

Review Shooter: The Avengers

In 2008, Marvel Studio’s released Iron Man. This was to be the first feature film financed and produced by Marvel Entertainment. Marvel characters weren’t new to the big screen (Spider-man and X-men were two of the biggest movie franchises ever), but Iron Man was to be different. It was the beginning of something much bolder […]

Review Shooter: Avengers vs. X-men #1.

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis. Artist: John Romita Jr. It’s finally here. The summer event we’ve all been waiting for: Avengers vs. X-men.

Review Shooter: Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E #1

Writer: Jeff Lemire Artist: Alberto Ponticelli My main criticism of Justice League #1 was that it was too much of a slow burner for a first issue. I wanted to see the full team formation. If you wanted the same as me from Justice League #1, you’ll really enjoy Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E #1. In […]
