Legends of the Dork Knight #1 A Blog for all things Batman – October As the new Batman review writer here at CTG, I want to use this first Bat-blog to introduce myself to everyone. When I read reviews, or news stories, or blogs, I like to know more about the writer and their background because I want to know just how serious they are about whatever it is I am reading about. Now a days, it’s easy for anyone to read a digital book and write a review on it and not have any passion or true interest in it and that really makes me feel a disconnect from the writer. I want to know

The Beginning is Nigh Fourteen minutes into the pilot episode of HBO’S Watchmen, although I was enjoying myself, I thought, "People are going to be mad about this," which can be said about anything produced in the age of the internet. However, to say anyone would be completely unjust in disliking this show wouldn’t be correct. As a television show, it has everything you can want; there’s great writing, great performances, it’s shot great, a great score, etc. It’s a deserving addition to the catalog of amazing HBO dramas. The luckiest viewers and

As one Batman team exits, a new one enters. By Wes Greer Batman Reviewer As we near the end of the year 2019, we also near the end of Tom King’s run on the current Batman series at DC. King will be stepping down from Batman after issue #85 that will be released this December and conclude the current ‘City of Bane’ storyline. King has had his ups and downs on his time with Batman, but lately a lot of fans have really felt like he hasn’t put forth the effort the Dark Knight deserves, and his departure is welcomed by many. Batman will have a new creative team stepping up

It’s a bird, it’s a plane… No wait, it’s an alien! In Superman: American Alien, we’re a given a new, but familiar look into the life of Clark Kent. Although it is still technically an “origin story”, it feels less like it’s trying to rewrite the tale of Superman as much as it’s just telling you a few tales of this different iteration of Superman. It builds its own world without putting too much weight on the building of a new world. So, as long as you have a general grasp of the story of Superman, you can pick up this comic and enjoy

If there is one thing X-Men fans are used to it is marketing phrases that suggest universe shaking events. That what is coming in the series, major event or crossover is a game changer and nothing will ever be the same again. While many times at the beginning it feels like this is the case but so often the intent of the game changing moment is there but in the deliverance it just seems to fall flat and then shortly after forgotten. We are now about to head into the next game changer or as Marvel calls it the next seminal moment with Jonathan Hickman's two new series House of X and

          Put the pitchforks down, people. I know Spider-Man: Homecoming is overall a solid movie. But if I’m ranking all the wallcrawler’s flicks, it’s in the middle. Yeah, it’s got some great stuff going for it. Tom Holland is likeable as the protagonist and Michael Keaton is one of the MCU’s better antagonists for sure. With Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse blowing it out of the water, though, I think now is a good time to talk about where Homecoming drops the ball. So let’s get to it and countdown the four reasons that Spider-

This column kicks off what we hope will be a new monthly feature here at CTG. We will be spotlighting a Kickstarter campaign to bring more attention to the project and get the backing it needs to get done! We hope you enjoy it and you consider backing the creators and their work. For our inaugural column it’s my pleasure to announce the latest creation by former CTG columnist, Frankee White, 20 Fists! Joining Frank on the project is artist Kat Baumann and letterer DC Hopkins. Together they are putting together a 90 page black and white original graphic novel. I’ve scrolled

We’re officially only about a week away from Halloween which means that this wonderful season is so close to being taken away from me. In the meantime, we’ve still got several days to get some Halloween season comic book reading done. This week, I’m going to tell you about two of my absolute favorite horror comic book series. I chose these two because they both have so much to offer. They are both packed full of everything that makes storytelling exciting and I think that they’ll fit into the season perfectly.  American Vampire American Vampire is a series

Halloween is creeping up on us so quickly and, like every year, I am panicking trying to fit all of the Halloween things in so that I can enjoy every little bit of the holiday season. But enough of thinking about it being over, it’s still the middle of October so let’s get to some horror comic book recommendations.  This week I chose two series that have come out within the last year. Both of these newer series were mini-series and have concluded already so that means you can read them in their entirety. One of the series is a spin-off of a horror movie franchise and one is

For this week of Halloween: The Gathering, I decided to take us all the way down south to New Orleans, which is also my hometown! This city has a rich history of music, food, community, and of course, voodoo. The city’s record of voodoo has caused it to be a location for a lot of different media and plenty of it focuses on the witchcraft that is so excitingly spooky.  So for my fourth week of horror comic book recommendations, I chose three different series that take place in New Orleans. These three current series may not be the scariest, but they are dark and sinister, which
