Amazing Spider-Man was chosen as my top pick for this past week. I enjoy reading this book but sometimes I find the multiple sub-plots throughout the story a bit distracting. There always seems to be so much going on in this universe.
In this issue we pick up where it looks like the identity of Spider-Man will be revealed on live television to millions of people. J. Jonah Jameson unknowingly blocks the view of Spider-Man's face however, so that no one can see a thing. This really changed the tone of the story from where it left off in the last issue. It took away the suspense and made the story more comical.

Fantastic Four #190
Written By Marv Wolfman
Pencils By Sal Buscema
Inks By Tony Dezuniga
Colors By Glynis Wein
It’s a flashback! And by Flashback I don’t mean that really crappy final episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation where Riker got bit by that space snake( A space snake?!?) and they had a shitty recap show. No, this is the issue where the Fantastic Four break up for good! (Suuuure, they did.) Well, that’s what went down in the last ish. Tash Moore here and I’m gonna give you the skinny with this Bronze Age rant for Marvel’s First Family, the Fantastic Four.

Tash’s Pick of the Week: Captain America #24
Written By Rick Remender
Pencils By Carlos Pacheco & Paul Renaud

Colors By Dean White & Sonia Oback
Hey there, gang. Tash Moore here and I’m bringing you my pick of the week as only I can. Which most likely means it’s late. Hey, what can I say? It’s just my style. And by late I really mean that I’ve been spending a great deal of time watching football. But that’s neither here nor there so lets talk about Captain America #24. I really dig this book for some reason. I think that it might be because it’s so god damn goofy. But in a serious way. I mean, the book started with Cap living in another Dimension (Z) for ten years with a child he had stolen from Armin Zola. He had two you see. A boy and a girl. The boy was taken and raised by Cap and the girl (Jett) was raised by her dear ol’ dad and what all evil and stuff.

Fantastic Four #187
Written By Len Wein
Pencils By George Perez
Inks By Joe Sinnott
Colors By Glynis Wein
Hey there gang, Tash Moore here with more action in the mighty Marvel manner. And by that I mean one awesome story from the Bronze Age of comics with Fantastic Four #187. I think before that I'll let you guys know that back in this day and age the Fantastic Four was one of Marvel’s Premier titles. (You can’t tell that now a days, but hey, you can’t have everything.) If you wanted to pen the book, you totally needed to bring your a-game or have your head shoved up your ass by Marvel Editor in Chief, Jim Shooter. Yup. So now that’s out of the way, let get on to the rant, shall we?
This issue starts with the FF coming back from rescuing little Franklin and Agatha Harnkess from the secret town of New Salem, which is a town of Witches. (Don’t ask.)

He saved his momma.
Spoiler?! What spoiler? You knew it was going to happen.
I chose this issue as my pick of the week mostly because I enjoyed the story... obviously. More than just the drama of having to rescue his mother in Wakanda, Daredevil also is able to confront his mother about the shocking images he saw from his past of his mother on the floor, beaten with his father standing menacingly over her.

Hey there gang, Tash Moore here and I know that I haven't been really updating this part of the site and I promise I will. But with a twist. Starting from here on out Reboots and Relaunches will be going Bi-monthly. Oh, don’t give me that look. It’s so I can spend more time writing my reviews and NOT because I’m super lazy or anything like that. Nope. Nothing to do with me being lazy at all. Also a good thing that this is going Bi-Monthly is I can get more “News” into this post and have tons of more ranting to give to you, the reader(s). Hey, if Moon Knight could get over being once every other month, then surely I could get away with it. (Finger’s Crossed!) So on to the news.
So back at Comic Con 2014 a teaser trailer was shown from Superman V. Batman: Dawn of Justice. So what’ve I’ve seen that’s been thrown on the Internet is that Ben Affleck Batman is looking up at Superman and his eyes are red! Meh. Didn’t really make me want to jump out of my seat and send a blank check to the folks over at the WB. I’ve got the feeling that somehow DC and the WB is going to fuck this up. They will find a way to make easy money and make us all put our cash away and just wait for the next Marvel film to come out. Also Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman was shown. Wow, her outfit looks like a fucking reject get up that Xena would wear. Plus I heard that she isn’t even going to be a HUGE part of the film. Wonder Woman is going to be nothing more than a Cameo.
