WARNING: THIS COLUMN CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! It’s very rare when I feel the urge to write a review for a video game. Usually I play them, complete them (to my liking...I’m not always a completionist but I enjoy at least finishing the main story) and go onto the next one. And then just recently I completed Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady’s latest (and supposedly final) installment in their Arkham saga, at 100%. While the game gives you the option of ending things once the main story is over, I got word pretty quickly that if you finish the game at 100% (basically capturing every major villain at large and making Gotham once and for all), you get a “super special” awesome ending.

After years of teasing, political pundits, comedians and just generally EVERYONE that doesn’t take American politics seriously at all got the announcement they’ve been clamoring for: Donald Trump is running for United States President! And it was EXACTLY the media circus you’d expect it to be. It had racially bigoted comments...talks of building great walls (gold plated, I assume), bragging about riches, bragging about selling real estate...bragging about everything. There was Milania, Ivanka...Oprah (not really, but Trump wants to run with Oprah as his running mate...because Oprah apparently NEEDS to run for political office for some reason). There was Neil Young’s “Keep On Rockin’ In The Free World” blaring in the background (without Neil Young’s permission). I know Trump already believes he’s a gift from the Gods, but I actually think he is! From the Comedy Gods, anyway. Read more...

There are many iconic images that stretch back through Batman lore and we each have our own favourite pieces. For some, it could be the Dark Knight illuminated by a lightning bolt from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. For others, it could be the Joker wielding his Joker Fish from Detective Comics #475, Catwoman and Batman embracing in Hush, and some may cite the Bat Armour from the epic Night of the Owls. For me though, the full page spread of Batman broken across Bane’s immense knee is one of the most evocative and ultimately chilling images in all of the Caped Crusader’s adventures. Read more...

5446ce1dc7051The TV season is in full swing! And there has NEVER been more amazing superhero and comic book adapted TV shows! From Gotham to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to Arrow, we have just been bombarded with tons of heroes on TV. But there are probably some people out there looking for some great trades and graphic novels to pick up to enhance their TV watching experience (not to mention, catch all of those easter eggs that come up in every show! Oh, yes...there have been many!). Not to worry, The Bleeder King's gotcha covered. I've comprised a list of the most important trades from each show that you really should have on your shelf (if you don't already)! Let's get started on a fairly recent miniseries that shed a dark light on the early career of one of Batman's greatest foes. sound familiar?! Read more...

kaare-andrewsThere are quite a few artist/writers in the comic book industry, but none of them like to do things a little out-of-the-box like Kaare Andrews. If you aren’t familiar with Kaare, then you are missing out on one of the most creative minds in the comics industry at the moment. Andrews began work in the industry in 1997, but it was his 2006/2007 mini-series Spider-Man: Reign that broke ground as a dark tale of a retired wall-crawler, and it made a Kaare a double threat in the comics biz. What some of his comic book fans may not be aware of, is that the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native is making his mark on the film industry as well, with film directing credits including Altitude, ABC’s Of Death, and Cabin Fever: Patient Zero starring Sean Astin. He also had the chance to direct the indie rock duo, Teagan & Sara’s music video for their song, Living Room. This makes Mr. Andrews a true pop culture renaissance man! Read more...

sin-city-2-poster“Walk down the right back alley in Sin City, and you can find anything.” Those words have never been truer than in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the sequel co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have FINALLY got around to doing, almost a decade after the release of the first cult film. This one stars the returning Jessica Alba (Nancy Callahan), Mickey Rourke (Marv), Bruce Willis (John Hartigan), Rosario Dawson (Gail), Powers Boothe (Senator Rourke) and Jaime King (as both Goldie & Wendy), as well as newcomers, Josh Brolin (taking over as Dwight), Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, Eva Green (Eva Lord), Dennis Haysbert (taking over as Manute), Christopher Meloni (Mort), and Jaime Chung (taking over as Miho), among many other familiar faces throughout. But this is no ordinary sequel. Like the first film, A Dame To Kill For provides three distinct stories that intertwine and they take place before the events of the first film, during, after and possibly in alternate realities...I’m actually not too sure...but more on that in a bit.
