The Haul: February 2017

After an almost three year hiatus (the last post came out on 4/30/14), I’ve decided to bring back my column “The Haul.” At its inception, I vowed to write something once a week.

“Charles Soule teams up with Ryan Browne for a story of an evil wizard posing as a good guy in modern day NYC. With this creative team that synopsis is only the tip the iceberg, I expect a lot of glorious insanity in this book.”

This Years Finest 2015: The Empire Strikes Back In Marvel’s Star Wars

5446c5dd89eedAt the beginning of the year, Marvel Comics launched their line of Star Wars comics to immediate sales success and fanfare. Since then, the publisher hasn’t stopped releasing several new ongoing’s, miniseries & crossover’s related to the property to the delight of readers and retailers alike.

Star Wars comics rocked readers everywhere in 2015 with a little something for everybody as you’ll see below.  Continue reading This Years Finest 2015: The Empire Strikes Back In Marvel’s Star Wars
