One episode down, 3 more to go!
The second episode of “Crisis on Earth X” with Arrow brings us to the halfway point of the crossover event, and I personally think it’s safe to say this may top last year’s “Invasion!” With the first episode it was established that our heroes are dealing with Nazi’s from a 53rd earth they were unaware of and this is not a fight that is going to be easy. This is going to be a fight not just to defend their homes, but also to protect the entire world and multi-verse from falling under the control of the Nazi’s and the Fuhrer!

My Spider Sense is tingling!
I have been very much looking forward to seeing what the upcoming animated Spiderman movie from Sony Pictures was going to look like and we’ve been given out first teaser trailer, which looks freaking awesome as shit!
For anyone that hasn’t heard of this project before, it’s an upcoming animated feature produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman. The movie itself is going to be our first look in the shoes of Miles Morales who is one of the newest Spidermen in the Marvel Universe, who is a teenager from Brooklyn. The premise behind the film is to show Miles balancing his life as a high school student as well as being a superhero, similar to what Peter Parker did when he first became the web slinger. Miles Morales is from the Ultimate universe of Marvel and first appeared back in 2011 in the comics I believe.

Holy shit! Story of the Year are back with an absolute banger of a comeback album!
I have been a fan of Story of the Year since 2006, getting hooked on their awesome sound and lyrics when I first heard In The Wake of Determination. December 2017 is the year in which Story will be releasing their fifth studio album titled “Wolves”, which will be their first release since 2010’s The Constant! Almost 7 years since their last album, dang that’s a long time!
The band is formed of vocalist Dan Marsala, lead guitarist Ryan Phillips, bassist. rhythm guitarist Philip Sneed and drummer Josh Wills. So for their new album the band became independent for Wolves and went about this by putting together a Pledge Music campaign to help fund the project. The album was produced by Aaron Spinkle, who has worked with bands such as New Found Glory and MXPX to name a few. This album will be the band’s first release since the departure of bassists Adam Russell, who left back in 2014.

It’s finally arrived! The two night epic crossover event “Crisis on Earth X” aired this week and it was so worth the wait!
I’m going to be reviewing each episode within the crossover for all four shows, starting with the Supergirl episode which was Part 1. So I’m just going to jump straight into it!
This year the crossover takes place over two nights with the first night airing Supergirl and then Arrow making up the first half, with the second half the next night with The Flash and concluding on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. This is the big crossover event of the year for the Arrowverse with “Crisis on Earth X” being a total of four hours altogether and really involves all four show’s this year. Last year we saw our heroes take on the Dominators in “Invasion” and this year they are going up against Nazi’s?!

DC’s answer to The Avengers has finally arrived!!
As we’re all aware, the DCEU movie universe has been subject to a lot of hate and negative criticism over the past year. I can’t say I disagree with the reception it has received as there are some things that Warner Bros. has got wrong when trying to build the DC film universe, but I think with the massive success of Wonder Woman I was going into Justice League with an open mind. I REALLY REALLY wanted this movie to be good as I am such a huge DC fan and I did not want it to be a let down and prove all the “critics” right.
WARNING! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR JUSTICE LEAGUE!!! IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE MOVIE DO NOT READ PAST THIS POINT!!!!!
So without further ado I’m just going to jump straight into this review of Justice League, as I have a lot to talk about in regards to the movie. If you’re a comic book fan then you should know that the Justice League is formed of earth’s strongest heroes from all different branches of the DC Universe. The League in the comic books consists of Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and Green Lantern. Obviously due to not having a plan for Green Lantern, he was absence in the movie and with Superman being dead, after the events of Dawn of Justice, the film focuses around the remaining five heroes.

It’s been a few weeks since I got back from the 32nd MCM London Comic Con, which took place during the last week of October and was the second show of 2017 at the Excel Center.
I have attend MCM about 5 times now, this being my sixth, and I have to say this was probably the most enjoyment I’ve experienced at the show. The event itself was spread across three days which featured so many cool things such as UK exclusive collectibles, celebrity guests, a shit ton of superheroes, panels, photo ops with guests, thousands of fans, games, comic books and anime/manga enthusiasts.

So if any of you follow my social media channels, you’ll know that I have taken part and entered the Rick and Morty Design Contest on For Fans By Fans. I’m been pouring a lot of time and effort into my illustration work lately and I wanted to enter this just to prove to myself that I can draw something related to a brief.
It was a lot of fun when coming up with my design as my imagination just kind of run wild and my final design wasn’t even the one I was going to submit. I’m a massive fan of Rick and Morty just purely because it is so out there and definitely goes against the norm. The creators of the show had a brilliant concept for it and their imagination runs wild, if you’ve seen the show then you know what I’m talking about! I just decided to think of a design that really portrays the characters traits and I think I managed to succeed with this in my final submission.

“I hope you got your shittin’ pants on, because you are gonna shit your pants!”
The Walking Dead finally returned to our TV sets tonight with the highly anticipated Season 8 premiere! After a strong finish to Season 7, I was very much looking forward to seeing where the show would progress with the conflict of Negan and the Saviours! I have been keeping up to date with updates on the eighth season and I was the San Diego Comic Con panel as well, so I was so stoked for the show to return.
