FANTASTIC FOUR #2&#3

ImageHowdy all you nerd-pokes. So I picked up Fantastic Four #2 & #3 to find out how the next two issues may give me a idea of the direction the series maybe heading. So the feeling I got from reading these two issues is that this could be a good old adventure series. Now I talking about adventure in the lines of  something along a Indiana Jones in comic book form. Okay maybe not in the lines of a Indiana Jones movie but I hope you understand my meaning.  Matt Fraction’s writing is light and enjoyable with very little of the tech babble that you see in books and in TV shows these days. To me it seems that more books spend there time trying to show off how technical they can be then just writing a good story. Again like I wrote in my review of FF#1 I still am reminded of the old Lost in Space TV show from 1965–1968. Now that is not a bad thing because that show was good fun. I also can see a similar style to shows like Supernatural that has a core story that has a tread thru the series but it still has their creature of the week.  Both books are a good read and fun. Also the feeling of books written in the 70’s and 80’s. The good books written in the era. Mark Bagley art is still enjoyable to look at, smooth and pleasing to the eye. The ink work by Mark Farmer and Mark Morales really help the art pop out.

Overall the did like the new FF and hope that the writing and art can keep up. ImageI hope that the book will continue to be a good adventure book. If they can continue to have the creature of the month and Reed’s quest for a cure as the anchor thru the series I for one hope this has a good run.

So in the short hairs of the review was the FF #2 & #3 a fun read? Hell yeah and I may add it to my pull list. Only I have to remove one the list also to make room.

Remember comics are made to be enjoy, not destroyed.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA:BLOOD AND CHROME

BattlestarGalactica_BloodAndChrome_BD+DVDHello all you beautiful nerds how it going? Well the other day I found out that that the SyFy channel in the good old US of A was going to broadcast Battlestar Galactica:Blood and Chrome  movie that was a web series. Battlestar Galactica:Blood and Chrome  is set in the tenth year of the war between the Colonies and the Cylons and follows the young William Adama. Adama fresh from the academy is assigned to the Battlestar Galactica. To his shock and amazement  he is assigned to a Colonail Raptor and not a Viper.

Originally green lighted for a pilot for series it ended up a web series. I remembering hearing about these awhile back and forgotten about it. I am glad now that I found it floating on the net. Blood and Chrome is a good entertaining movie but does have some slow parts in it . The acting is good, not second class like you might fine is a web based series. Luke Pasqualino as the young Adama was a great choice. Ben Cotton as Lieutenant Coker Fasjovik, co-pilot on the raptor with Adama(Luke Pasqualine) starts out rough but the two blend together well as the movie moves along. The rest of the cast some you will have seen before do a excellent job. We also get to see the start of the Cylons move to final verison that we see in the series Battlestar Galactia.

Like they tried to do with Star Trek:Enterprise and show us the history of the Federation, Blood and Chrome tries to show us the events that lead up to to the final season of Battlestar Galactia. If it was a series the stories available are huge. I for one would love to see more of these characters. If your Battlestar fan and need a fix I highly recommend you find Battlestar Galactica:Blood and Chrome
