It’s frenetic and energetic in a way that captures the revolutionary feel of a newborn nation struggling to find its footing. While Breaking Bad may […]
You ever see The Raid? It’s this Indonesian action movie. It (and its sequel) is probably one of the best action movies in recent memory.
The plot of The Raid is ridiculously simple. One cop, in one building, against an army of criminals. It is an hour and a half of dudes wrecking shit. It’s eighty minutes of brutal martial arts. It’s something that’s been done lots–you can describe a ridiculous number of movies that way, thanks to Die Hard–but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s absolutely thrilling, a marvel of craft and assured filmmaking.
Dynamite Week is going on this week, and so say Dynamite themselves.

In February his first-ever cover at Marvel […]
Quietly revealed by Kathryn Immonen on her Tumblr, Marvel’s series Journey Into Mystery has been cancelled. First re-established by Kieron Gillen as a cosplayer-delighting waterfall of fantasy and Tumblr mischief starring a young version of Loki, Immonen jumped on after his thirty-one issues and redefined the series with artist Valeria Schiti and colourist Jordie Bellaire as a […]
Publishers seem increasingly willing to roll the dice on anthology formats recently. Maybe it’s the success of things like Dark Horse Presents, and the model they’ve followed of introducing new works and then successfully spinning them off into new story titles like BLACK BEETLE. There’s an inherently approachable aspect to anthologies—new readers can pick them […]
The relaunch of Captain Marvel, with Carol Danvers in the title role, started off very shakily. The first six-issues told a time-travel story which eventually teased together parts of the character’s origin in a way which wasn’t particularly as entertaining or dynamic as was hoped. Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick had previously proven herself to have […]
