Review: Avengers Vol 5 #22 “It is a test for Titians…”

Written by Joe Naz (@Naz_islike)

Avengers vol 5 #22

Infinity is in the final stages of placing all of its chess pieces into play to take down the king!  The Avengers are gearing up for one of the most important battles they have faced since dealing with the Infinity Gauntlet when the Mad Titan Thanos was wielding it. The Black Order is going ape shit and ramping up for vengeance and to gain back lost honor. The Avengers are locked and loaded to take down the Mad Titan, and Leinil Francis Yu (artist for Avengers) drew the Smasher with a huge, fat bubble butt. That thing is ri-god-damn-diculous. I’ve got nothing against a big ol butt, but that thing came out of nowhere. I’m sitting here trying to immerse myself, attempting to watch these cataclysmic events unfold and a few pages in BAM! I just needed to get that out of the way. I feel a bit better now, ok, onto the review!

Review: Saga #15

Author: Jay-Rey (@jay_rey)

Saga #15 written by Brian K. Vaughan with Fiona Staples

I gotta say, Saga is fantastic.

Since we haven’t yet written about Saga on For The Blog! yet, let me do a quick overview. Saga tells the story of two star crossed lovers. Literally, star crossed. Alana, a winged woman from Landfall, and Marko, a horned man from Wreath. Two civilizations in the middle of a bloody war with countless casualties. In an interesting twist, the story is narrated by their daughter, Hazel, who is born in the first few panels of issue #1. This leads to some very interesting snippets about the future, with Hazel dropping subtle clues to where certain characters will end up, years after the story being told ends.

If you aren’t up to date, clearly there are some spoilers after the jump:

Top Five Horror Comics (Just in Time for Halloween!) from Donna & Joe Naz

Written by Donna (@df_rock) & Joe Naz (@Naz_islike)

Halloween is almost upon us and we all at For the Blog decided this would be a good time to post some of our favorite spine chilling comics that we have had the pleasure (or should we say nightmare?) of reading over the years. We’ll be breaking it up into two parts, so first up we have Donna and Joe Naz’s top five horror picks!

Joe Naz’s Top Five Picks

Walking Dead #1 (image via wiki)

Walking Dead #1 (image via wiki)

The Walking Dead – While The Walking Dead teaches you that some of the scariest monsters might just be our fellow man, there was still nothing more frightening to me than in Issue 1. Rick awakens from a coma and finds the hospital infested with zombies. Unlike the rest of the world, he has no idea what is going on and has just woken up and is dropped in a world he is no longer familiar with.

Swamp Thing (The Scott Snyder & Yanick Paquette run) – This would be scary enough with just Scott Snyder writing (that man knows horror), but you have Yanick Paquette as artist. A lot of the ghouls he brings to life are the monsters that as a kid. The ones you were scared of because if you left your ankles hanging from the bed, they would be the ones to pull you under and devour your body while your parents stood there helpless.

Marvel Zombies (Imagie via Marvel wiki)

Marvel Zombies – Watching your heroes turn on the world and inflict pain is horrifying enough. The inner child in me wants to cry as I watch these guys destroy everything they have ever stood for in a very, VERY violent manner. Go ahead, look. Those images are George Romero fuel filled nightmares. Continue reading
