Movie Review: Anchorman 2

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
directed by Adam McKay
starring: Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Kristen Wiig, Christina Applegate, and many more.

So, I saw "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" today. This was a very absurd but often hilarious film. There were a ton of cameos. The whole thing felt like a nice continuation from the first film, so if you enjoyed Anchorman, I think you'll enjoy Anchorman 2.

Tash's Pick of the Week: Batman & Two Face #26


Written By Peter J. Tomasi
Pencils By Patrick Gleason
Inks By Mick Gray & Keith Champagne
Colors By John Kalisz


Tash Moore here on this Christmas Day with my pick of the week. It’s Batman and Two Face #26. I don’t really care for the holidays so I’m here with this review. So sit back and open that giant bag of coal you got from the big man(Bruce Wayne?) and relax. Normally I’d have something snaky to say here but you can’t. It’s a damn Batman book by Tomasi and Gleason. Nothing bad can be said. We get the story of the New 52 Two Face of how the twin Irish sisters Shannon and Erin killed his wife and messed his face up.

Olivia's Pick of the Week: Batgirl #26

Batgirl #26
written by Gail Simone
art by Fernando Pasarin and Jonathan Glapion

This issue was a really good read. What made this so good was the strong storytelling. The ending was cliche but the sentiment and the emotion that came from the scene with Barbara and her father made up for all of that.

Comics Review: Mighty Thor #204

Written By Gerry Conway
Pencils By John Buscema
Inks By Jim Mooney


         I'll admit that I wasn't a big fan of the story that was running through the pages of this book during my last few reviews. I mean it was pretty much just one goofy space opera. But it did have tons of awesome action by "Big" John Buscema, so that's they only real saving grace. But this issue picks up on earth and Odin is chewing out Thor,Sif, The Warriors Three and everyone from the space opera, Mangog run. Thor is upset that Odin didn't let him in on his plan to create those new gods. Odin in turns Banishes his whole crew to earth as punishment. Everything goes back to the way it was and Odin sits on his throne (not his asgardian toilet) and boo hoos Thor being a bad son.

Comics Review: Talon #13


Written By James Tynion IV
Art By Emanuel Simeoni
Colors By Jeromy Cox


Hey hey, Tash Moore here with the newest (late?) review of Talon #13. Well It’d be the #14th issue if you had to take into account that #0 issue. But DC doesn’t so why the hell should I? Amirite?  Attempting to get back on track here, the live of Talon continues. Emanuel Simeoni continues to provide the artwork in a nice little cross between a Young Terry Dodson and Salvador Larocca (back when he was good). I’m really enjoy the art on said book, but I bet you can already guess that huh?

Tash's Pick of the Week: Green Arrow #26


Written By Jeff Lemire
Art By Andrea Sorrentino
Colors By Carcelo Maiolo


Tash Moore here to give you guys my pick of the week. As I said on the last episode of the Verbal Mosh I was going with Green Arrow #26. Written by (surprise, surprise) Jeff Lemire. I went with this comic book because the art and the writing. (Duh!) In this issue Green Arrow is getting back to full strength after his battle with Count Vertigo (Not Dr. Doom or the DC Imprint.) Now He and Shado, the woman who was being held by Count Vertigo and GA’s Dad’s former lover (that’s a mouthful.) go looking for the arrow totem.

Comics Review: Amazing Spider-Man #317

Written by: Dave Michelinie
Art by: Todd McFarlane


    Venom's back and he knows where the alter ego of Spider-Man, Peter Parker, lives. Unfortuneatly, Peter doesn't know that Venom knows and it makes for a nice good surprise when Eddie Brock shows up at Aunt May's boarding home. He asks to have a moment alone with Peter, forcing Pete to not be with Aunt May. During their talk, Eddie lays out some ground rules. He wants to meet up with Spider-Man later the next day and he only wants to meet Spider-Man. No help, no other heroes. As long as Peter follows those rules, Eddie won't tell people who Spider-Man is and there won't be no competition to who gets to Pete's family first. Seems like a simple thing to follow, if Peter cared about rules. First thing he does is head over to recruit some help from a longtime orange friend of his.

Reboots & Relaunches Dec. 2013




Hey Gang, Tash Moore here. I’ve not done a proper review in what feels like a lifetime. But I swear that will change soon. My real job and the holidays have caught up to me. I owe them money. I’ll get back to making fun of all your favorite comics soon but until then I’m starting a new monthly column to talk about what’s going on in the world of comics and give my two cents. Which I guess is pretty much worthless. So I’d like if you gave it back, please. Anyway I’m going to call it Reboots and Re-launches. Wow, I remember back in the day when a new #1 would mean something. Now it means that Joey da Q. will just laugh at me and count my money. All the way to the bank. Yup.

Comics Review: Savage Wolverine #12


Written and Art by: Phil Jimenez

    A new chapter opens up in the ever so long life of James Howlett, better known to you guys as Logan and even better...ly known as Wolverine. He's hanging out on the plains of Mother Africa this time around, monologuing on how he's one with all the beasts of the land. Hanging with some elephants, walking through the trees, this is a new side of Logan for a lot of people to read and a side we're not all that used to seeing. Its a good side of him, and I'm glad to see it, I really like the stories that show that Wolverine can be kind hearted and not JUST a blood lusting killing machine. Although, those stories are great too.

Comics Review: Amazing Spider-Man #316

Written by: David Michelinie
Art by: Todd McFarlane



   This is easily one of the most recognizable covers of all comic book history. Its Venom standing over a beaten Spider-Man, hand covered in blood and smiling that evil smile we all love so much. This issue picks up in the sewers of New York, as Venom hunts down a poor homeless man, the sewers are supposed to be for Venom and Venom alone. The man swears he won't tell anyone that he saw Venom, but he knows the man is lying. So his response to that is scare him into keeping his word. Venom webs up a nearby sewers rat in a ball of webbing and notes how the rat is struggling to get out.

Comics Review: Mighty Thor #203


Written By Gerry Conway
Pencils By John Buscema
Inks By Vince Colletta


Hey readers, I’m back and can get on with this Mighty issue of Thor. You see what I just did there? No? Well, screw you then! Oh, I kid. Or do I? Enough with the nonsense and on with the review. Thor is trapped under a huge pile of rocks while Ego Prime stands around and looks at all the evil he has done and smiles. You know, Ego Prime is just like a damn Bond villain. “I have you trapped Mr. Thor! Now I shall walk away without seeing you meet your end. Bwhahah.” Then when Thor shows up to continue swinging that hammer of his, Ego Prime is all “D’oh!”

Ego Prime is on Earth and boy is he pissed. It must be because of that name that’s upsetting him. Tash Moore here, I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything here so I’m back with a little pre-thanksgiving Thor review. Thor won’t be eating turkey and hanging with Loki in today’s review. He’s got to go toe to toe with wait for it…….. Ego Prime!

Comics Review: Superior Spider-Man #21

Written by: Dan Slott
Art by: Giuseppe Camuncoli


We last left Otto Parker on the verge of some $#!% going down. His thesis for his doctorate was accused of being stolen (from himself nonetheless) and Otto's old love, Angelina Brancale, has woken up from a coma from the news that Spider-Man killed her husband. She then fired up Otto's old virtual reality machine to bring back the super strong, super pissed, super PMS (can I say that?) Stunner! Needless to say, she's going for "Peter's" head.

Olivia's Pick of the Week: Animal Man #25

Animal Man #25
written by Jeff Lemire
art by Rafael Albuquerque



This issue was fantastic. I love the art. Rafael Albuquerque's work fits so well with darker themes. The heaviness and energy of the lines makes the characters look beautiful and violent.

The plot continues with the Brotherhood of Blood making a scene at that famous award ceremony in which Buddy Baker is nominated for Best Actor for his role in Tights. There's not a lot happening with Maxine, Buddy's daughter, and her part of the story. She's just trying to lay low for the moment. She does notice the storm and the rain which will foreshadow the struggles to come.

Dead Talks #1: The Walking Dead # 115

Written by: Robert Kirman
Art by: Charlie Adlard

    Welcome to the inaugural review in a new segment we here at the Verbal Mosh are calling...get ready...its awesome...Dead Talks. AIN'T IT GREAT?!?! Anyway, we're here bringing you some in depth Walking Dead coverage and just in time for the 10 year anniversary AND the start of their big new story arc "All Out War"! I'm very excited for this mainly because I'm a huge fan of the book but ALSO, this arc is a 12 parter!!! For those of you who don't know, this book only comes out once a month so this one single arc will last an entire year!!! Ok, enough rambling, let me catch you folks up on what's been going on lately in the life of Rick and his group. They've all been living just fine in the town Rick found, except they have to answer to Negan. Leader of the Saviors, a group who controls all the neighboring towns. They've got an "agreement" with Rick to take half of everything they own, once a month. Half their food, half their ammo, half their weapons. Rick isn't going to stand for this any longer, he's made alliances with some of the towns that also hate Negan and they've come together to bring war on him. And now, ladies and gents, we crack open issue 115 and begin...All Out War.

Tash's Pick of the Week: Thor God of Thunder #15


Written By Jason Aaron

Hey gang, I’m back and yes it is I who has the pick of the week. I’m running with the Thor theme this week with Thor God of Thunder #15 from the good ol’ Marvel bullpen. If you haven’t noticed that Thor The Dark World is out, (and shame on you if you haven’t see it yet.) this issue has the main bad guy from said film taking center stage.

Comics Review: Amazing Spider-Man #315

Written by: Dave Michelinie
Art by: Todd McFarlane


    This issue opens up in Colorado. The state that brought us South Park, John Elway and legalized pot. In a super prison called the Vault. An ex army soldier needed some job security so he picked up a job as a guard at the prison, and so far, its going great. That is, until his first week on the job is over and as he's making his regular patrol he sees a body of a fellow guard on the floor. He quickly shuts off the sonic shield designed to keep super villain Eddie Brock inside his cell and checks on the body, but that body isn't any regular body. That body has a very symbiotic quality to it! Being a religious man, Eddie Brock doesn't like the idea of killing for no reason, and does feel some slight remorse for what he did. A kiss on the forehead of his victim and a verbal apology cleanses his conscience, but some sacrifices have to be made if Venom wants to achieve their goal, and that's destroying Spider-Man! Speaking of whom, he's in New York fighting off a wet foe.

Comics Review: Marvel Knight's Spider-Man #2


Written by: Matt Kindt
Art by: Marco Rudy

    This book is definitely off to a strange start. Peter took an odd photo job that turned out to be a trap set up for Spider-Man! He then had to face some of the weirdest foes he's ever had to throw down with, and at the head of it all (in issue 1 at least) was the dreaded Arcade! Spidey was drugged up and woozy, but Arcade told him he had to fight 99 of his own villains or a bomb was going to go off somewhere undisclosed! Seems like some pretty heavy stuff for a comic book, man its good to have Marvel Knights back! So now let's crack open this issue and see what the hell Peter can get himself into next!

The Verbal Mosh Episode 246

Amazing.

Actually this issue was pretty good. I wasn't too enthused about any of the books I read this week. Amazing X-Men happened to stand out just a bit more than the other books.

Comics Review: Mighty Thor #201


Written By Gerry Conway
Art By John Buscema and Jim Mooney



This issue opens up in Brooklyn, where Heimdall shows up with some super secret task given to him by Odin. In this issue we don’t get the full detail of what he’s doing but I’m pretty sure we will find out later.  But back on Asgard is where the fight between Thor and Pluto are still battling it out for Odin’s soul.

The battle is so epic in scope that Thor and Pluto are shaking Asgard to it’s core. Hela has so much respect for All Father Odin that she gives him his life back. I had no idea that you could do that for someone you respect so much. Shows what I know.

Comics Review: Amazing Spider-Man #314


Written by: Dave Michelinie
Art by: Todd McFarlane



    This issue opens up on a very cold day. No, not because people are emotionally dead, but its snowing! And as if that's not enough, Peter Parker and his lovely wife Mary Jane Watson Parker have just been evicted! As you know, they live in a building owned by a man who recently kidnapped MJ and kept her hostage, almost forcing her to marrying him. Luckily he was stopped and sent to jail with some help from Spider-Man. Aunt May is a bit worried and offers a room at her boarding home in Queens, but Peter's got a spot already set for them and its a surprise. Elsewhere in Queens, a shady business man stands in his office with what may be his accountant or something. Its a small scene, only a page, but it doesn't feel like any of these men are up to any good. Back at Peter and MJ's apartment, they get all their belongings moved out fairly quickly, MJ decides to head to her lawyers office to see if there's any advice she can get from them on what to do next. While Peter heads to the Bugle to see if there's any work in store for him there. On the walk over, Peter admits to MJ that he actually doesn't know where they're going to be staying. He doesn't want to go back "home" with his Aunt May as much as he may love her, he doesn't want to take a step back. And awesome MJ understands this, but the moment is cut short by a near by mugging which Peter barely even wants to go stop, but does. You know, that whole Power/Responsibility thing.

It was very chilly last night, but we happily trekked out to see Thor: The Dark World. The movie theater was very old. The seats squeaked but there was no popcorn and soda on the ground, at least, compared to more modern theaters.

Art By Big John Buscema
Inks By John Verpoorten


Beware! If this be…Ragnarok. With a tittle like that you know it’s got to be good. Am I right? Tash Moore here with your blast from the somewhat past. Looking back at the 200th issue of the Mighty Thor to see just what the hell was going on in the thunder god's world back in the Bronze Age. We get a little back and forth in this issue where we get current Thor and Future Thor. Jason Aaron may have stolen this idea but we like him so we won’t judge.

Tash's Pick of the Week: Scarlet Spider #23


Written By Chris Yost &Erik Burnham
Art By David Baldeon
Colors By Chris Sotomayor


Well right off the bat let me say that this will totally be a straight forward review of Scarlet Spider #23. Why, you might ask? Because Kaine and the real deal Scarlet Spider were my favorites as a little kid growing up in the 1990’s. So I have nothing bad to say here. It was a great blast from the past here.

Giving you, dear reader, a little bit of back story here for people who were born in 1992. Kaine is the goofy long-haired very first rejected clone of Spider-Man. (See the 1970’s Clone saga.)

Comics Review: I Killed Adolf Hitler

I Killed Adolf Hitler

I picked this book up having read one other book by Jason before called, The Left Bank Gang. I really enjoy the simple character designs and straight forward storytelling that Jason uses. It compliments the often complex emotions the characters are dealing with.

Comics Review: Amazing Spider-Man #313

Written by: Dave Michelinie
Art by: Todd McFarlane

    This issue wastes no time in picking right up, giving us a great page shot of a giant shark swimming through the air inside the Midtown Tunnel. The shark takes off the entire top half of the taxi cab that both Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson Parker are riding in. They're on their way to Queens to check in on Peter's Aunt May, hoping that area isn't as bad at Manhattan. Peter actually punches out the shark all without the driver seeing and they keep moving on with their day. I guess things are just that easy when your life is a comic book. Back at Empire State University, we see a struggling Dr. Curt Conners in his lab trying to fight off becoming the Lizard. He's supposed to be able to control the transformation but something is not letting him grab control over it this time around and he transforms without wanting to. Pete and MJ finally make it to May's house and the groups just miss each other, May isn't home and as Peter leaves as Spider-Man in worry, May arrives at home, telling MJ she tried to leave for Manhattan. On the other side of the city, another car shoots across town. Inside are Billy Conners and his mother. They're on their way to go see Curt, he wants to talk about them getting back together and the only reason she agreed was because he said he can control the Lizard. Whoops.

Comics Review: Indestructible Hulk #14

Written by: Mark Waid
Art by: Mahmud Asrar and Kim Jacinto


    Hulk's been traveling around time stopping a team of Chronarchists from altering time to their liking. Time in general has been all completely messed up since the shenanigans that took place during the Age of Ultron, don't worry, we want to forget it ever happened too. So far he's stopped two of them, one in the old West that brought dinosaurs into the mix and a second one in medieval times that tried bringing some weapons to the king before man is supposed to get them. Its all looking pretty easy, that is until we learn the next and final Chronarchist is at the sight of Bruce Banner's accident when he becomes the Hulk. It seems that this Chronarchist is trying to undo the very creation of the Hulk! Well, let's just crack open this issue and see where it leads.

Damn you Odin! Well in this issue of the Mighty Thor, Odin is dead. Well not really, kind of sort of. Hey don’t blame me, I didn’t write this issue. Odin is being kept in a suspended animation type deal by Thor. So he’s kind of in a limbo type situation. Thor using the power of his hammer moves Asgard back into it’s normal space since. It being moved by Odin during his battle with Mangog.

Written by: Dave Michelinie

The showdown we've all been waiting for, both goblins go at it! We open up in the middle of a crossover event inferno, so yes, there will be some confusing moments. Apparently, the Hobgoblin has come to Harry Osborn, the new Green Goblin asking for "IT". And Harry not being crazy, at the moment, didn't know how to answer so he lied and said it was in his office in Manhattan. But now, his wife and child are in danger. And there's only one person who can keep them safe, and that's the Green Goblin! Meanwhile, over in Manhattan, Peter and MJ are on their balcony, seeing some of the odd changes that are happening to the city. Buildings growing, clouds shifting, shit is getting nice and weird. Pete's gotta head over to the Bugle to see if there's any work for him, and MJ's got a jewelry photo shoot still to do. Neither of them wants the other to go, in fear. But both are too prideful to admit their fear,

When dies the immortal! Hey wait, if Odin is immortal then how can he be killed? I don’t think comic books would lie to me. Still kicking it old school with the Bronze Age Thor run (which is the mid 70’s to late 80’s. for you kids.) Odin tries to save Asgard from Mangog. A being who has the hate of a billion, billion beings. Wow, somebody really put a great deal into that name. It’s totally just like when you like someone. And I don’t just mean like. I mean like, like.

Written By Peter J. Tomasi
Penciled By Patrick Gleason
Inks By Mick Gray
Colors By John Kalisz


It’s Two Face with an origin story in the New 52. It’s only took two years. I’d hate to see a revamp of Batman: Year One. Oh wait, Scott Snyder is doing that in the pages of Batman. While there is much to complain about in that issue. I have no such problems here. The story starts off with Harvey Dent aka Two Face at his pad. What a knock down drag out awesome splash page here where half of Two Faces pad is nice and clean just like Dent would like it. The other side is dirty, bloody and an downright crappy looking on the other side.

A lots been going on lately in the life of the evil Spidey Ock. Doc Spidey. Otto Parker. Peter Octavius. Ok I'm done.

Olivia's Pick of the Week: Chew #37

Chew #37

Family Recipe Part 2. In this issue, Toni is helping Tony out in trying to find the Collector by speaking to him from beyond the grave via her amputated toe. This book is such a good read. The level of absurdity from the situations to the characters is so consistent that you just accept whatever comes your way. It's a really funny book, too. Tony starts off by eating the wrong person's toe. He has a slight meltdown as he sifts through his wife's life. That toe was actually meant for his daughter, Olive. It's a family dinner.

Matt Milanes New York Comic Con Day 2 Saturday and 3 Sunday ( For him, anyway)

Saturday. The most popular day at NYCC. It's when all the juiciest announcements are made, and the big reveals get the most gasps. This day, started like all others, but ended with a bang. First up was the IGN panel for all you gamers out there. It was basically a bunch of gamers sitting in a room talking about the future of gaming. What systems they're stoked for, what games they're drooling for, and what can define the next generation of video game consoles. Definitely a lot of fun.

Matt Milanes New York Comic Con Day 1 Friday (For Him, anyway.)

Ahhh New York Comic Con. How I haven't missed you one bit, just kidding, I've missed your crazy ass and it's time to get down another year! The walk from 33rd street station to the Jacob Javits Center is always entertaining. The cosplaying, the excitement of being Day 1, loved it. The crowd was very cooperative when my friends and I started a Daniel Bryan "Yes!" chant, so I knew the day would be great. We finally get inside and boom! line up for the Comic shook amen panel hosted by Kevin Smith, and boy what a show that was. The funniest Q&A session I've ever been to in my life. Topics ranging from Clerks 3 to what kind of pot Solent Bob was smoking while in New York to what female character would they want to be, in order to sleep with what male character. Tons of laughs, and I left feeling real good. Kevin Smith has such a way with words and he's got an even better way of making you feel like you can do anything. A truly inspirational man and I'm glad I got to hang with him for an hour.

Next panel was the DC: All Access panel and by All access they meant, let's talk all about Batman and how Zero Year will cross into a bunch of other titles that are failing as a way to get sales. Yeah, that sounds about right. Not the strongest panel of the day sadly. They also took this time to plug a bunch of Vertigo books written by some DC writers. Yay for cross advertisement! The rest of the day, for me at least, was spent buying a Stan Lee autograph ticket, meeting some dude ass dudes at artist alley, and getting some books signed by amazing writers. Left a little earlier than I wanted to, but that's what happens when you're in a group and get outvoted =[ Overall: successful Day 1.
