The Saviors

James Robinson(Batman:Legends of the Dark Knight, Detective Comics,Starman) and J. Bone(Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Super Friends) have come together to make a very interesting book. The setting for is a small town called Passburg somewhere is the U.S. Our hero, Tomas works in what is the only gas station in town. Spending his days pumping gas and getting high and his nights at the local watering hole. The story is set in modern America but the book has the feel and look of a 1950’s space monster flick shown at the local Drive Inn. Tomas is just living life until by accident or from being high, see’s that the local sheriff and General of the nearby Air Force base and not what they appear to be.

Not sure what he saw Tomas heads to his best friends junk yard to tell him of what he saw. Tomas is told by Frank, Tomas best friend that maybe he needs to lay off the booze and pot for a while. Tomas take Frank’s advice and decides to relax. The sheriff shows up just as Tomas decides to leave and that is when all the action starts.

James Robinson does a great job of giving this book a feel of a B monster movie. Using the town stoner that no one would believe and turning him into the hero of the piece. The writing is easy to read and gives you what you need to know without all the tech talk that would come with other books. In one quick moment town stoner has his reason to fight against the alien invasion.

J. Bone art style fits in perfectly with the story and is the main reason for that feel of a 50’s monster movie. Blocky at times and  yet awesome also J. Bone lack of detail in other areas also stands. Stands out in a way that bring you in deeper into the story.  The book being done in black and white also helps in the tone and style.

I have to say I really enjoyed this book and plan on picking up more of the series.

So I do recommend getting this book.

I give it 4 pops out of 5

Remember comics are to be enjoyed. Not destroyed.

Movie Monday: BATMAN: DEATH WISH (2012 Fan Film)

Hey Poppers and welcome again to Movie Monday.

So it is only a two days until Christmas so what better way to celebrate the season then watching a fan film of everyone’s favorite Santa helper, Batman.

This fan film released in 2012 was directed by Matthew Hiscox. Written by Jennifer Zhang and Produced by Matthew Hiscox and Jennifer Zhang.

I have to say that finding these fan films made by fans for the love of any characters is amazing. Yes production value is not top notch but put that aside and you will see some great films. Batman: Death Wish is one of those films. The costumes are great, yet I still can’t get over the nipples on the suits. Christopher L. Robinson is a pleasure to watch. Christopher looks and acts the most comfortable in the Robin suit and it show in his portray of The Boy Wonder.

So sit back and just have some fun.

Batman, Robin and Nightwing investigate a mysterious assailant who is targeting the kingpins of Gotham’s criminal underground. As more of the rogues gallery is ensnared, a disturbing revelation about the attacker’s identity takes shape.

Well ladies and gents the first official trailer for the next installment of the rebooted Planet of the Apes has hit the web. I have to say I am not much for reboots but I do like the reboot “Planet of the Apes” movie. The trailer for the next one looks dam good also. So take a look and what do you think. Going to spend your cash?

“A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.”
