Stan Lee’s Mighty 7: Beginnings

Stan Lee’s Mighty 7: Beginnings

| April 16, 2014

I’ll concede that the 2007 releases of Stan Lee Presents: Mosaic and Stan Lee Presents: The Condor were, shall we say, somewhat underwhelming as far as superhero movies go.

Astonishing X-Men: Torn

| August 10, 2012

I just can’t get enough of Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men. When his 25-issue run on the series with artist John Cassaday came to an end, I swear a part of me went with it. And so I greeted the prospect of the series’ revitalization as a motion comic by Marvel Knights Animation with open arms. […]
