Busiek and Larsen's 'Defenders' stories are fast paced, fun, filled with links to the past of the Marvel Universe, and just good ol' superhero comics -- a rarity these days.
Comic books don't all have to be about super-powered, spandex-wearing heroes, nor have half-naked, gargantuan-breasted women.
This comic is a fun ride, and sometimes that is all you need for 10 minutes of sheer entertainment!
DC Comics' series of 'Just Imagine . . .' one-shots written by the legendary Stan Lee answers the question of whether Lee still has what it takes to write comics. The short answer is: Yes. The long answer is: So what?
Despite the rich pedigree of the main character and the multitude of Hell-raised and -raising characters that inhabit DC's mature Vertigo line, no fanfare accompanies 'Lucifer'.

10th Annual Noise Pop Sees Steady Growth Spurt As Organizers Promise Best Fest Ever The 10th Annual Noise Pop Festival has grown from humble beginnings
High Sierra Music Festival Part 2 feat. Apollo Sunshine, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, The New Up, and Sh
High Sierra has its fair share of innocuous acts, sure, but in recent years the festival has also opened the door to some healthy aggression.
You might well be on the road to Rivendell, Shangri-La, or maybe even Grandma's House.
Tribute acts are cover bands with sillier names -- the Achtung Babies or Fleetwood to the Max. They're music's C-list, sure, but can they really rock like the big boys?
Psychos, thieves, weirdos filling bottles with piss and throwing them into the crowd, this festival is not for boys in parachute pants. It's for metalheads.
'Yes, Dear' is a serviceable sitcom that, like most new shows, teeter-totters between doing things well and doing things badly.
After eight years of squishy monsters, labyrinthine conspiracies, and creepy adventures in inner and outer space, the most popular television sci-fi series in recent memory (shut up, trekkies) resorts to the obvious Christian imagery.
Scully took no grief from Mulder; she questioned him, disagreed with him, and stood up to him. With Doggett, however, there is a more traditional he/she split.
As Mulder seeks to confirm a universe of infinite possibilities, Scully attempts to reaffirm her faith in God -- the granddaddy of supernatural phenomena.
The teen X-Men interact in that magical place, high school, and get to drive cars and look fashionably funky (mandatory skater cuts for the guys and thumb rings for the girls) and do all those other things a kid would do in a parent-free environment.
Cameramen with chest-mounted cameras, wearing their own protective helmets, run pell-mell around the players shoving cameras into the huddles, pile-ups, and sidelines to create an up-close and personal 'feel' for viewers.
My favorite contestant in the premiere episode, Renee, seemed to be the smartest and most well-behaved player. Her response to losing the game at the end, however, was filled with such animosity towards the winner, John, that I was left feeling like I didn't know Renee at all, which of course I didn't.
Christine Baranski delivers one-liners so fast the audience barely knows what hit them. More importantly, she adds shading to what could potentially be a one-dimensional character.
Will & Grace was an eight-year advertisement for a 'commercialized gay identity' that did nothing to challenge current constitutions of power.
