When this assignment was first sent out by my boss, I had fellow friends and reviewers approach me with, "Dude, did you pick up that James Bond review?" See, if you know me well enough, you'll know that I am a HUGE James Bond fan! I've seen each of the 23 films more than once. I have autographs from all SIX actors who have played James Bond in the official movies (Yes, including George Lazenby . . . ). I even have signatures by Judi Dench, Richard Kiel (Jaws), and Honor Blackman, better known as "Pussy Galore." I even still own a Nintendo 64 gaming system solely for the purpose of playing the best James Bond video game ever made, Goldeneye. So, when I first picked up a copy of James Bond and Popular Culture: Essays on the Influence of the Fictional Superspy and read that it was dedicated "to fans of spyfi, espionage, and, of course, James Bond aficionados everywhere," I knew I was meant to review this novel.
I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to write a review for the entire Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time comic book series. Chapter 3 in this series was one of the very first comics I reviewed for Fanboy Comics, let alone one of the first comic books I've read since I was a young boy. Although, at first, I thought time-traveling turtles were a little far fetched, I then remembered that I was reading about a series of ninja turtles who also happen to be mutant teenagers. EVERYTHING is too far fetched for this storyline! And, now that I've read all 4 issues, I actually think this is one of the best TMNT comic books in the entire franchise.
I'm so excited to continue to review the ongoing storyline for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If you remember in last month's issue, our heroes fought two of Shredder's strongest cronies--Rocksteady and BeBop--in one of the best comic book battles I've ever read. Then, in the epilogue, we catch Donatello controlling Dr. Harold's robot turtle, Metalhead, to have a conversation with Shredder . . . about Krang! It was truly an exciting issue!
It's that time of the month again, readers. No, I don't watch Star Wars every month. (Only every other . . . ) I'm talking about Nemo's adventures in Slumberland! Although I'm sure you've seen our friend, Nemo (or Jimmy, which he more prefers), in your own dreams, he's back in Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland #3.
Well, it's been a little over a month, and I have been waiting in anticipation to see what happens to some of our favorite comic book heroes: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Ghostbusters!
Holy rhinoceros! I literally just finished reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Issue #40, and let me just say that it contains one of the best battles I've seen in a comic book since I've been writing these reviews!
"A screaming comes across the sky. A shrieking. A beating of wings of desire. Of fluidity taking form of a form unborn of formlessness."
That's deep. That's dark.
That's also the best quote I can use to describe the newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle hardcover, Legends: Soul's Winter. When I first began reading this comic, I thought I was reading the wrong series. I mean, the same characters appeared, but they were . . . different.
I feel like this is art appreciation week (or month for that matter), because Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secret History of the Foot Clan is the second comic book I've read this month that focuses on an artist's original artwork. In this case, we celebrate the outstanding work by TMNT regular Mateus Santolouco.
I’ve been reading comic books for a little over 3 months now. I’m waiting for the day that I pick out a comic book to review that I simply don’t like, but who am I kidding? I have nerd blood running through my veins, and Star Wars: Dark Times just made that blood boil!
As Halloween is fast approaching, the Fanboy Comics staff and contributors decided that there was no better way to celebrate this horrifically haunting holiday than by sharing our favorite scary stories! Be they movies, TV shows, video games, novels, or anything other form of entertainment, members of the FBC crew will be sharing their "scariest" stories each day leading up to Halloween. We hope that you will enjoy this sneak peek into the terrors that frighten Fanboy Comics!
When this assignment was first sent to me, my mind immediately went into a racing frenzy! I mean, there are so many amazing villains out there in the comic book world, not to mention those in film, TV, books, video games, and whatever other media you can think of. But, who is ultimately the SCARIEST?
