In an online game, we can be anyone we want. But are you ever not.. yourself? ‘In Real Life’ by Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang explores this social atmosphere.
The Avengers full theatrical trailer is finally out and I just can’t shut up about it.
Comics come in many types. From main runs to crossover events, we’re given plenty of content to keep us busy every Wednesday. Recently, or somewhat recently, I’ve been noticing more mini-series events taking place. A mini-series in the comic medium consists of short, self-contained story that lasts for about 5 or 7 issues.

Two nerdpundits take a look at Marvel’s X-Factor: The Longest Night. See what they thought and join in on the dialogue!
It’s always nice to take a detour off of mainstream comics, especially for a Marvel loyalist such as myself. I needed a break from all the tights and bad (um, awesome) puns.

After a six volume graphic novel series and a summer movie release, it’s only natural that the Scott Pilgrim crew would receive their own game in which to frolic. Expectations for video games based on comic books are usually pretty low, but things are a bit different here. Being based on a comic that makes […]
Comic book movie season has officially kicked off! To start the festivities, Kick Ass was released on Friday, April 16th – last week. As I’ve touched upon previously, these movies come packaged with a sort of comic book police. Their sworn duty? To make certain that the movie does the source literature justice. These comic […]

With every comic-to-movie adaptation that has come out, there is always been a specific type of “concerned” buzz preceding its release. This holds true for the upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, a movie adaptation of Brian Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim comic series.
