X-Force Annual #1 - Cover

Shunk! Blam! Whudd! Kroom! Fwump! Don’t tell me the story, show me the story is a truism that is given to film scriptwriters, but it also applies to comic books — and X-Force Annual #1 illustrates this concept with glee. Carlo Barberi and Jason Pearson have done a great job with the artwork in this book which keeps you turning from page-to-page with good old fashioned fisticuffs: Read more…

X-Babies: Chabot Goes Chibi

Posted by Michael Pinto on Dec 3, 2009 in Comic Books

X-Babies #3 - Cover

When I first came across X-Babies I have to admit I was drawn in by the ever so cute covers by Skottie Young, but with X-Babies #3 I’m realizing that the best part of the book is actually the interior art by Jacob Chabot.

Posted by Michael Pinto on Oct 4, 2009 in Comic Books

X-Babies #1: Cover

It strikes me as amusing that Kitty Pryde, the girl who can’t be touched, is being used to touch all of our hearts. I’d complain, but she phased through the soft spot of my soul years ago. In Full of Pryde over 70 artists created new fanart of Kitty Pryde as a part of a fundraiser for the Oregon Hemophilia Treatment Center. Shown above is a purrfect illustration by Aleks Sennwald and below are just a few highlights from the show: Read more…

Wolverine: Our Leaked Trailer from Secret Origins

Posted by Michael Pinto on Dec 14, 2008 in Comic Books

We just stumbled over this leaked trailer of X-Men Origins: Wolverine on the net! I have to say that I had my doubts about this film, but it looks like it’s going to be action packed. Although the bad news is that when you see it in theaters there will be the same idiots who get to their seats late just like you see in this secret trailer!
