Yesterday, April 18th, marked the 82nd anniversary of Superman’s first appearance in the iconic Action Comics #1. Yes, the cover of Action says June but it was published April 18th, 1938. To celebrate his birthday I’ve put together a recommended reading list of some of my favorite Man of Steel stories. He’s had 82 years of adventure so I have not read everything. If I missed one of your favorites let us know on our Facebook page. Throughout his 82 years he’s always been the embodiment of hope and encouragement! Join me in wishing Kal-El a very Happy Birthday! Now onto

As 2019 comes to an end we thought a fun way to celebrate an amazing year in comics would be to share with you our favorite reads of the year.  We got together and each of us chose one book for 3 categories, our favorite ongoing series, our favorite story arc or mini-series, and our favorite single issue of the year. This isn’t the traditional “best of comics list” which you’ll find in abundance with a quick Google search. This is more of way for you to get to know us better and what we really enjoyed reading this year. We think of it more as a fun way to

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

When we decided at CTG to have a Daredevil celebration leading up to the new, original Netflix series I knew immediately what arc I wanted to cover, Born Again! I only first read this tale about 5 years ago but upon closing the back cover it not only became my favorite Frank Miller story but also one of my favorite stories period. I’m a huge fan of writer Frank Miller’s work but for whatever reason I was extremely late to the party on this one. I’ve made up for it since with reading it at least once a year. The really weird part of my love for this 8 issue series is I’

One of the many titles we were excited about from this past January’s Image Expo was Brian Buccellato’s Sons of the Devil. Brian has been busy the past few years as the best selling writer of the Flash, Detective Comics, and Injustice. This will mark his second foray into the exciting world of creator-owned comic books. Joining him on this original psychological horror thrill ride is up-and-coming artist Toni Infante.   Sons of the Devil was launched as a Kickstarter campaign and was successfully funded last June. The story centres on TRAVIS, an average guy trying to get by,

Hello readers of CTG! I’m going to try out a new monthly article highlighting some of the big releases from the current Previews magazine. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Previews it is a giant monthly publication which features every comic and tons of comic-related merchandise which will be sold in shops across the world 2 months in advance.   Each month I’ll flip through the giant publication and give you the run down on what I think will be the hottest titles and of course the stuff I’m looking forward to broken down by publisher. I’ll try to have a

With 2014 underway and All-New Marvel Now titles set to start hitting the store shelves this week I bring to you the 5 titles from this second wave of Marvel Now releases I am most anticipating in the upcoming months. Punisher:  By far the title I’m most looking forward to in the second wave of Marvel Now releases is the Punisher. I still can’t believe Marvel went as long as it has without my favorite vigilante having a monthly title. Before you say it, Thunderbolts does not count as a Punisher book! This new series launches in February and is brought to us by writer Nathan
