      Legends of the Dork Knight Issue #2 November, 2019   Hey there fellow Bat-fans.it has truly been an honor for me to be here on Comics the Gathering and having the opportunity to not only do reviews and columns, but to be able to reach out and interact with Bat-fans around the world. I have had so much fun this last month and I really appreciate everyone who checked out my first Column last month. As time goes on and the audience increases, this thing is going to continue to grow and grow and my main priority is

     I’ve been really enjoying Nick Spencer’s run on Amazing Spider-Man. It’s funny, it’s smart, it’s got intrigue and promising plot threads. It’s been righting so many wrongs and will hopefully keep that up. One thing that’s continually annoyed me about it, however, is the recap page. Or rather, its redundancy. Is it even necessary at this point?      Maybe it’s gotten better recently, but the problem is still there. A recap page summarizes everything we need to know about the story thus far. This is most

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-
