Injustice: Gods Among Us was only just the beginning. NetherRealm, the same video game studio that develops the Mortal Kombat series has yet another blockbuster Fighter franchise on their hands. Injustice delves into an alternate DC Universe where Earth’s greatest hero, Superman, becomes the type of tyrannical villain he was once sworn to oppose after he executes The Joker. The snowball effect of that event creates a world where our heroes and villains are drastically changed and the status quo of the DC Universe is flipped upside down. The first game’s story mode had the heroes of a more familiar Earth come to help Batman’s rebels battle Superman’s regime, but this new installment shows us the aftermath of that story. A new threat emerges as Brainiac (who is responsible for the destruction of Krypton in this reality) attacks Earth’s cities and enlists the world’s vilest menaces to aide him. Read more...

I have been reading the final issues of comics taking place in Marvels 616 Universe. As most of my readers probably know by now, Marvel Comics is following suit from what DC did a few years ago and rebooting their universe after the big blockbuster Secret Wars (technically it’s Secret Wars 4, if you count Bendis’ “Secret War”), and most of the long run and over 70 years of continuity will be (probably) flushed away. I’ve been pretty vocal on how I don’t think reboots are actually the way to do things, in fact, I wrote an entire column on how this was a bad idea. But anyhoo, none of that matters anymore. It’s happening, and the continuity of the comic book company I’ve stood by and loved my entire life is basically going kaput. As I was reading the final issue of Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers run, I was pretty bummed out on how things were ended: Iron Man and Captain America basically fighting like infantile school kids while their world gets decimated. THIS is how you end 7 decades of heroism and teamwork between two amazing and celebrated heroes? By having them act like....well...selfish douchebags? Read more...

Ottawa-Comiccon-SliderHey Bleeder Nation! Your king is still having a bit of a "con hangover", a result of an awesome weekend at the nation's capital (well, MY nation's capital, at least), Ottawa ComicCon! It was another great experience, hanging out with creators, cosplayers, and fans of comics, video games and pop culture of all ages! Nothing makes me happier than going to a con, and this one was one of the craziest! In fact, the numbers are in. 38,000 comic loving fans attended the event! Congrats to the organizers for putting the con together and making it a success! Oh, did I mention the interviews?! I got interviews! 4 amazing ones, to be exact! So be sure to keep a look out for those! You won't be disappointed! And as always I took pictures. Tons of pictures of the coolest cosplayers I ran into throughout the weekend. Once again Ottawaians (not sure if that's what they call themselves, but let's go with it) came out in full force and got their geek on! Read more...

admin-ajax.phpThis column is actually going to be a review column. Meaning that I am reviewing two books by DC Comics, and will give my usual play by play. This column is also about Lobo. You know the Main Man, Mister Machete, The Ultimate Bastich. He was all the rage back in the 90's, a DC version of Wolverine with a little Punisher thrown in. He ruled the comic book shelves with mini series after mini series and most notably in LEGION and Rebels. My point? Although he started out as a villain, he became DC's biggest anti-hero riding a hog and getting it done, mainly by killing stuff. That is Lobo, a biker who is huge that kills stuff. That said Lobo came back to DC in two separate comic books. In one he is by seeing him in just one page Lobo, the other he some kind of skinny exercise suit wearing...thing...I guess. One of these books is getting a decent rating, the other isn't. Can you guess which one isn't? Lets get started. Read more...

dark-knight-legacy-red-hoodEver since the controversial ending of Dark Knight Rises, fans everywhere have speculated about what happens next in Nolan's Bat-verse. Does Detective Blake become the next Batman? Is Bruce Wayne alive in Europe somewhere? We will probably never know the official answers to those questions, but that doesn't stop ambitious filmmakers for carrying on what those great movies started. In Dark Knight Legacy, we find out that Gotham's criminal underworld is up to no good with The Batman believed to be dead...and then they find out that a new, more ruthless vigilante is ready to clean up streets.

To Me My X-MenHey, Bleeder Nation! Your king has returned from Ottawa ComicCon, and boy, do I have LOADS of coverage and news (and in time, a few surprises) from the event! First off, I'll begin by bringing you all of the great pics of cosplayers I came across! I will say that among the 30,000 people that attended the con over the 3 days, there was some phenomenal cosplay and my Canadian geek brethren (and sis..thren?) proved that we can hang with the big cons down south!

D(L)C Comes Out Fighting! Here at eXpertComics we’re all incredibly psyched up for the latest videogame release from NetherRealm in conjunction with DC Comics – Injustice: Gods Among Us.   just 8   Some of our news team are backing Superman and the Regime and there are those of us lurking in the shadows with Batman and the Insurgency. Brought to us by the makers of the incredibly popular Mortal Kombat franchise, Injustice looks set to pit DC’s finest against each other, be they heroes or villains or something in between. The first DLC content is to be announced before the game is released in the form of a downloadable character so we had to speculate – who else would we like see as extra content to download and pit against the forces of the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight?   Read more...

  DAMM | What ARE the Top 10 Best Comic Book Movies? If you want to start a fanboy/girl fight just bring it up. So, of course I am going to bring it up. It's so Curmudgeony it sends me into fits of mirth. The answer to this question is impossible to determine to any scientific degree as art and taste are subjective on so many levels. Fanboys/girls have debated it since Tomb of Dracula or even A Man Named Flinstone. Read more...
