Review: Unmasked Vol. 1

We've all read superhero stories, and we all know the basics of how they go.  But what really makes up a superhero?  Is it just saying it or is there a specific moral code that needs to be there?  Unmasked Vol 1 delves into this question, looking at what makes a superhero.

Unmasked was created and written by Michael Sarrao, with art by John Broglia and published through Kickstarter.

Toy Fair '14: Loot Crate Review

While at Toy Fair last week, we got a chance to meet and greet with the guys behind Loot Crate.  In case you don't know about Loot Crate, they are a monthly loot service.  Each month, you get a themed crate (box) of goodies, all perfectly suited for any geek.  These crates have ranged in theme, from animation to zombies to gaming.

With the help of The Fight Nerd over at Nerdvolution, we took the opportunity to film our unboxing in the Javitz Center cafeteria!  Enjoy the lovely scenery as we take a peek into the January Loot Crate.

As you can tell, we really loved that crate. It held something for each of us. So, now that we've peeked your interest, go check out Loot Crate!

[IGH] At the Movies: The Lego Movie

Last weekend, Wysefyre and I got the chance to see the most anticipated movie of February, The Lego Movie!!  It's out in theaters on February 7th but I was just dying to share my thoughts about why you need to see this movie.

The story follows regular ol' minifig Emmett, who accidentally gets caught up in a prophecy to stop the evil Lord Business in his plot to destroy the universe! Along his journey, he meets a fun cast of new and old characters who help or hurt him in his quest.

Review: Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1

Courtesy of Dark Horse Comics
If you don't already know, I'm a huge Browncoat.  Yeah, super big.  Like throwing a whole party around the Firefly game.  On New Years Eve.  I turned the year playing the Firefly game while ignoring the clock.  So I was a wee bit excited for the release of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1 from Dark Horse Comics.  With the team of writer Zack Whedon, penciller Georges Jeanty, inker Karl Story and colorist Laura Martin, this series continues the story of our favorite Firefly crew nine months after the events of the movie Serenity.

Review: Prime-8's #1

By Reboot

Today, I'm reviewing all digital publisher Monkey Brain Comics new series, Prime-8's #1.  This series is brought to you by Michael Moreci and Steve Seeley, the co-writers and co-creators of this series that premiered with their successful Kickstarter project that I also reviewed, Mini-Comics Included.  This full length series now has art by Kyle Latino and Jordan Gibson.

Before I go into my review, I have to briefly discuss my love of monkeys doing people things.  I have fond memories of being over my great uncle's house watching old VHS recordings of the Planet of the Apes' movies in the late 80's and early 90's.  Additionally, I spent many an hour watching Lancelot Link with my dad growing up.  If you don't know what Lancelot Link is, go internet it.  In short, monkeys make great people, and after having read Prime-8's, I can also say monkeys make great comics.
