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!”
