We have been getting some really great titles this past year, so I wanted to talk about the most surprising, that is the most improved titles or the ones I didn't expect to be as good as it was. This is partially my thoughts with some assisstance, from the marvel and dc reddit. Aquaman   Geoff John’s Aquaman was a run that has gone down in the character’s history. Although the issues after were not bad, but they never were really able to re-create that feeling I had when Geoff John’s wrote. Dan Abnett’s issues on Aquaman the New 52 were alright but was

It was near Halloween 1992 when my dad got me it. It was a reprint issue "Silver Age Classics" printed above the title. A familiar character was on the cover, one that I'd seen on tv, one I had action figures of. Swamp Thing, and the book reprinted: House of Secrets #92. My first horror comic. I'll never forget reading it, I was hooked. Although the Swamp Thing character was the star of the book it was the other stories in it that fascinated me, from the bridging stories featuring Cain and Able the hosts of House of Mystery and House of Secrets respectively, the two of them

Rian Heist is a board game creator and comic book fan. Over the past 2 year he's taken to Kickstarter to finance seven different games. I talked to him about his latest, Golden Age-inspired project, the Great Comics Adventure. What's the Great Comics Adventure? The Great Comics Adventure is a game that I've been working for a little over two years. A game that celebrates historical characters from Comic Book history--that is designed to be easy to play for all types of tabletop gamers. With my past games I tended to have complex rule-sets and I really wanted to make a game that

Hi folks, my name is Dorlan and I am the new member of team Comics: The Gathering. My duty and honor will be to bring you guys reviews for new episodes of Flash. This blog post should serve as my introduction and a little review of last season. First thing you need to know about me, and I can’t stress this enough: I am not a professional. I love movies and TV shows and dedicate a large amount of my free time towards them but you should read my reviews for what they are: one man’s opinion. With that set aside, I’d also like to tell you that each review might be a little

Hi! I am a new reviewer on this site and wanted to explain my review process. For season/series reviews, I will give a overview of the season/series, reviewing it using segments before moving on. I will then discuss the characters one by one before moving on to judge the vfx or other factors. These reviews will be scored out of 10 with series reviews having the possibility of individual season scores. For normal week to week reviews, I will employ a similar style. I will discuss the episode and will highlight characters and performances I find important to discuss instead of reviewing every

Last week, I happened to come across the solicit for Thin #1, a book written and illustrated by Jon Clark and published by American Gothic Press. Aside from being a filmmaker, he's previously done covers, interior art and writing on titles The Gathering and Tales of the Abyss. Jon was kind of enough to talk to us about Thin and about what drives him as a creator.  - Héctor: What's the premise of THIN? Jon: THIN is an unconventional horror story about an overweight woman who attempts a miracle weight loss cure and finds herself in a nightmare without a way out.   -

  Greetings readers! We'd like to welcome you to a new segment we're starting on Comics The Gathering where we interview comic book kickstarters to give you additional information about the comic. Today we're interviewing James Wilkinson, creator of Sovereigns Dread who can be found by clicking this link.  Jesse Quick-Rincon: You mention that you’ve been working on Sovereign’s Dread for 3 years now, what has that process looked like? James Wilkinson: Haha, yeah that has been a very gradual process. I always used to pace in my backyard as a kid coming

                                      So if you are aware of the new Ghostbusters movie and have a working internet connection then statistically speaking you both hate it and have written angry comments on Youtube or your forum of choice. As of right now the video has over 850 thousand dislikes and produced more vitriol than any likely middling comedy really deserves.  The director, Paul Feig hasn’t really helped to abate this anger by saying, “Geek culture is home to some of

Moon Knight has been trying to climb the rungs to the A-List since Brian Michael Bendis did his run on the character back in 2011 - the series only lasted 12 issues and there were mixed opinions about the quality. Personally, I found it to be a lot of fun and well-suited to my tastes. The series ends with Marc Spector adding an Iron Man personality to his jumbled mess of an identity. It appeared Marvel did not know what to do with Moon Knight for a few years and just let him stay in a coma. All of this was very unfocused but it seems now that Marvel has finally put together a
