    Crying Freeman Manga Review

    Story: Kazuo KoikeArtist: Ryochi IkegamiTranslation: Kumar SivasubramanianPublisher: Dark Horse You might recall that during the ending of our manga podcast I briefly mentioned the name Ryoichi Ikegami. I was specifically talking about his work on Crying Freeman and Sanctuary. This put the idea in my head of going back and reading all those comics that I had from Viz back in the day. Then I noticed that just recently Dark Horse had released 5 omnibus trades collecting the series uncut in its original right to left format. I know the wonderful job they have been doing with the Gun Smith Cats trades, so I was really excited about reading them…

    It’s Superman Review

    It’s Superman!Where do we place superman in our minds? I for one, and I don’t believe myself to be alone in this, always picture Superman growing up in my life, watching his choices as a young Clark Kent as a foil to my own, stating that if I was a better man, I would have done what Superman would have done. I when a rare occasion I feel as though my deeds would honor the man of steel, a man without a flashlight, I feel as my pride could stop bullets. He’s the icon, the image, the man who came not from our world yet exemplifies all that it is…

    Galactus

    Finally after 9 series, Toybiz took a hint that accessories weren’t cutting it. They took into account that including Howard the Duck in the package was not going to make people buy more Silver Surfers. Is there any better way to get fans to buy unwanted figures then to stick a piece of a figure everybody wants in the packaging?

So the chances of someone, other than the completist,…
