• 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
  •           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

  • 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

  • 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

  • New publisher AHOY Comics blew us away with The Wrong Earth and not long after, wowed us with Captain Ginger. Captain Ginger is a brand new series written by Stuart Moore about a group of cats that are traveling space together. This series is beautiful, creative, and funny and each issue, like all of AHOY Comics' titles, is full of content beyond the main story. Comics: The Gathering was able to send Stuart Moore some questions about Captain Ginger and about being in charge of

  • The Wrong Earth is a brand new series from a brand new publisher called AHOY Comics. The team behind this very unique comic book publishing company are some very established and talented people. One of those people is Tom Peyer who has had a detailed and important history within the comic book industry since the 1990s. He is now Editor-In-Chief of AHOY Comics and on top of that is writing one of the new publisher's amazing series.

    The series is titled The Wrong Earth and

  • 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
  • Legendary artist Carlos Ezquerra passed away today, at the age of 70.


    Carlos was probably best known for his work for 2000AD. Along side writer John Wagner, he was responsible for the creation of the comic's two big hitters, Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog.  He also worked for a range of other comics.


    Dredd’s elaborate gold-heavy uniform was based heavily on the Spanish fascists, a regime the Carlos lived under for many years. Famous for his exotic and strange mega-cities, gritty landscapes and big, chunky characters,

  • For this third week of Halloween: The Gathering, I will be suggesting some awesome horror comics that lean slightly towards the bizarre side of the genre. I think that both of my recommendations this week are excellent Halloween season reading as they both have plenty of blood and violence. If blood and violence don’t get you in the spirit of Halloween, then I guess you’ll just have to wait until next week because blood and violence is what I have for you this week.
