I want to preface this with some information for all of you. I consider myself something of a pop-culturist. I like to immerse myself in all that is new and exciting in pop culture. I like to try all that I can, no matter how weird or out of the ordinary it sounds. I read the first book of Twilight and saw some of the movies because I wanted to just know about it, and didn’t feel right mocking something I knew nothing of. I like Godzilla, I like Mega Man X and I love Batman. It’s this trait that I think makes me a good “nerd”. I’ll try anything at least once whether it be comics or movies or whatever and this gives me a database of knowledge about pop culture that I pride myself on. I guess I’m … Read More »
Hey everybody. As you might know (and if not you will now!), I’m the new guy at the store of awesomeness, the 4th Wall! I’ve been surrounded by comics, superheroes, sci-fi, and the world of geekerry (which I am proud to be myself!) my entire life.
Because I am ancient in this world (well according to most fellow class mates in school and co-workers, lol!), and because of my experiences in life, I am a natural critic. I love to debate and argue about movies, comics, TV series, the newest toys, places, food/beverages, and society. My intentions for this new blog of mine is to review current affairs in relations to selected topics and give you the scoop if I give it (in order from best to worst) the F*%k yeah!, the meh, the kick in the ass, or the punch to the … Read More »
A good sunday to you comics-fans! I’m here to once again bring back Indie Comic Corner, to enlighten you on another interesting series that you may not have heard about! This installement is about The Manhattan Projects, a science fiction/history book written by Jonathan Hickman and drawn by Nick Piterra. It follows the “true” story of the scientists who worked on The Manhattan Project. While we think that the Manhattan Project was simply the Atomic Bomb, there is much more involved in this secret government science facility. Hence, the s in Manhattan Projects. The series follows Oppenheimer, Einstein, Fermi and Fynman but not as you would expect them to be.
What Hickman does in this series is take everything we know about the history surrounding the Manhattan Project, as well as the people, and change it drastically. … Read More »
Comics-fans, Zero month is nearly upon us.
“But, what’s Zero Month?” you ask. Well dear reader, Zero Month is September, to put it simply. You see, if you’ve been reading comics for the past year, you most certainly know about DC Comics’ New 52 project. BUT, for those of you who’ve been living sad comics-less lives, I shall explain. A year ago, DC started the New 52 as an attempt to start over. They dumped many years worth of continuity (except for people like Batman and Green Lantern) and started all of their books over at Issue #1 with brand new stories, costumes and a brand new universe. This project on the whole was largely successful except for a few minor cancellations and hiccups (you can read that as Rob Liefeld losing his mind if you like, it keeps things interesting).
“That’s … Read More »
Hey comics fans!
For those of you who don’t know, Before Watchmen has officially been underway for about 3 months now. This past week has seen the final first issue released meaning that each series under the Before Watchmen banner has officially started!

Minutemen: I was excited for this book when they first announced it. I’m a huge fan of Darwyn Cooke’s work at DC, especially his Justice League New Frontier books. His work continues to be phenomenal with this book which I can … Read More »

Helloooo comic fans! Your resident Batmanologist here to steal Justin’s shtick once more and talk to you about some games that have very recently hit the App Store. With the release of The Dark Knight Rises, there was bound to be some tie in material. Gameloft has given us The Dark Knight Rises Mobile Game for iPhone and iPad! And with the new 52′s popularity over the last year, a small company named Netmarble has given us Justice League: Earth’s Final Defense, featuring the current incarnation of the Justice League as its main cast. I recently picked up both of these from the App Store and gave them a go because I’m dedicated to letting you guys know about the coolest stuff (also I really like videogames, especially those featuring Batman, but all that other stuff was totally true!).

It’s another wednesday which means more new books comic fans! One book in particular has come out this week, and as your resident Batmanologist I felt obliged to review this release for you. Batman Earth One is the second book to be released under the Earth One title, the first being Superman Earth One. The Earth One series can be likened to Marvel’s Ultimate Universe. These books are contained stories in a contained universe without the burden of continuity. What you’re getting from these is the early stories of Superman and Batman, though slightly altered. For example, these characters are shown to be younger than when we’re first introduced to them, and much more inexperienced. But enough about the concept behind Earth One, let’s dig into Batman Earth One.
As I stated before, this follows Batman at the beginning … Read More »
