I’m (Not) Fine

Image
BOOK REPORT for More Than We Can Tell by Brigid KemmererFYI this is a companion novel to Letters to the Lost. You in no way need to read the first book to understand this one, but it will give you a deeper appreciation of the characters.Cover Story: Lazy Chat Bubbles
BFF Charm: Big Sister, Platinum
Swoonworthy Scale: 7
Talky Talk: More Than Fine
Bonus Factors: The Tami Taylor Award for Amazing Motherhood and Keith Mars Award For Awesome Dadhood
Anti-Bonus Factors: Patty Chase Award for Awful Parenting, Internet Trolls
Relationship Status: When Are You Free Next?Cover Story: Lazy Chat BubblesThis isn’t offensive but it’s super boring. Texts have some play in the story, but they don't feel consequential enough to warrant being a cover feature. The blue is nice? And I like the chat-bubble-turned-heart. But overall this feels lazy.

The Deal:Rev Fletcher escaped his abusive con-man father when he was seven years old, and now, at eighteen, he's put all that behind him. He’s got amazing ado…

Flashback Friday: Mephisto

Image
Every Friday, we use the powers of Marvel Unlimited to look back at the very first appearance of a major character, place, or object that made waves this week.They say that magic always comes with a price. Though he’s more than familiar with the concept, Stephen Strange finds himself learning that lesson once again in the pages of DOCTOR STRANGE: DAMNATION, by writers Nick Spencer and Donny Cates alongside artists Rod Reis and Szymon Kudranski.The Master of the Mystic Arts had great intentions—to bring the fallen city of Las Vegas back after the events of Secret Wars. However, in doing so, he opened up a door for none other than Mephisto to saunter through. Now, Strange needs to work with other mystically inclined heroes to put an end to the evil lord’s machinations.But who was the very first hero Mephisto tangled with? That would be the Sky-Rider of the Spaceways, as seen in the pages of 1968’s SILVER SURFER #3, by legends Stan Lee and John Buscema. Much like the X-Men, Norrin Radd f…

Star Wars Spotlight: The Golden Age of the Sith

Image
Some battles go on so long that no one really knows how they start. That statement could easily be said about the wars between the Sith and the Republic, however, with STAR WARS: TALES OF THE JEDI – GOLDEN AGE OF THE SITH, readers got a look at how a pair of hyperspace jockeys accidentally lead the Republic into direct conflict with the supposedly lost Sith Lords.Written by Kevin J. Anderson with art by Chris Gossett and Dario Carrasco, Jr. this story took place 5,000 years before the events of “A New Hope” in the Legends continuity. The story began in a zero issue that mixed Sith history in with the adventure of Jedi Odan-Urr, whose teacher Master Ooroo tasked him with assisting Empress Teta in her mission to unify the seven planets of the Horos System. Though admittedly more of a scholar than a warrior, Teta’s Jedi adviser Memit Nadill welcomed Odan-Urr and his different point of view.
