What You Reading? Invisible Woman #1

By |July 18th, 2019|

by Mark Waid & Mattia De Iulis I typically do not write about first issues of a comic book because – for me – I find the first issue to be the least exciting. Nowadays a first issue is the one that does the heavy lifting in terms of setting up the premise, introducing us to the world, the antagonists and protagonists, and

By |June 18th, 2019|

In 2005 a film adaptation of the comic book character Man-Thing was released from Lions Gate Films. And I can say with full confidence that of all the films released in 2005 – this was definitely one of them. I don't know why you'd want to but you could watch the movie version I guess. I had to watch this "adaptation" (several times actually)
