green arrow #35 true cover

A new creative team on an established comic series is often met with a mix of fanfare and trepidation. Sadly, in the case of Green Arrow #35, I felt more fear than optimism. Sure, new writers Andrew Kriesberg and Ben Sokolowski are both established writers for both comics and television, but that’s not the issue. No, loyal readers, there’s but one word to sum up my issue: Arrow.

“But Silverwolf, don’t you like that series?” I hear you ask, and I’d respond with, “Yes, that’s right. In fact, I love Arrow.” But see, that’s where the problem lies: I like the Arrow universe because it presents a new spin on my favorite DC hero. I’d prefer if both the comic and the TV series held parallels, but were mostly separate entities. Is this fear justified? Let’s take a look at Green Arrow #35! Continue reading »

Deadpool seems to be the hot topic ONCE AGAIN my friends. This past month, Deadpool’s movie has FINALLY been green-lit by Fox and will be hitting theaters in February 2016. But before we see him on the big screen, maybe you will want to see what Deadpool has been up to in the page’s of the ALL-NEW MARVEL NOW! comics.

The merc with the mouth has certainly had a VERY busy year, between his abductions, his marriage, and discovering he has a long lost love child? Yes it sounds like a soap opera, but it’s WAY more interesting than that. But before Deadpool can finally live happily ever after with his new wife and daughter, he must first ensure her continued safety, as well as the safety of some of his newest friends, which he made when he was abducted and brought to North Korea. His story continues in the pages of DEADPOOL #35.

I believe that brevity is the soul of wit. Sure, there is something to be said about webcomics crafted over years of dedication and growth… However, there is also something incredibly impressive about a short and sweet story that packs a powerful punch. Princess Princess is the perfect example of how a strong, short story — combined with charming art, and an upbeat plot that harkens back to nostalgic “girl power” themes–can leave a lasting impression.

And it doesn’t hurt that it also has like everything anyone clamoring for more diversity in fiction can ask for.
