  • Ender’s Game Concludes with Children of the Mind

    Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card It’s taken me a while but I have finally read the original Ender’s Game series. The first novel is a science fiction classic that I stumbled upon seven years ago. I was completely blown away by the tale and it became one of my all-time favourite books. […]

  • Bullseye: Greatest Hits

    Bullseye: Greatest Hits This is a one-off story that attempts to tell the origin of one of the most dangerous villains in comics. This graphic novel collects the entire run of the five issues mini-series. First off, the title is a bit of a misnomer. This wasn’t a greatest hits compilation. It didn’t retell any […]

  • Earth Afire – Ender’s Game Prequel

    Earth Afire by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston I had no idea that this book was part of a trilogy when I started reading it. I just thought it was a one-off prequel to Ender’s Game. I enjoyed the read but it seemed like it took a long time to get to the actual story […]

  • The New Spider-Man, Miles Morales

    I’d been wanting to read this title for some time now. I finally got around to it, thanks to the Marvel Unlimited Comics App on my iPhone. They had a one month special subscription price as a special comic-con deal that I just had to take them up on. I read all of the graphic […]

  • Amazing Spider-Man: Dying Wish

    The Amazing Spider-Man: Dying Wish by Dan Slott, Humberto Ramos, and Richard Elson Spider-Man swung into our lives in 1963 and immediately became an iconic hero. But all good stories must come to an end. This graphic novel tells the story of the final days of Peter Parker. It collects issues 698-700 of The Amazing […]

  • Transformers: In the End there is Chaos

    Transformers: Volume 4 – Heart of Darkness Galvatron in back and it looks like the on-going series has taken steps towards the second generation. I much admit that I have always preferred Generation One Transformers and I missed having Optimus Prime and Megatron in this issue. I didn’t have to worry though, the Generation One […]

  • Hidden Empire

    Hidden Empire by Orson Scott Card I read the first book of this series, Empire, a few years back. I didn’t even realize that there was more to it. I found this hardcover book at the dollar store and couldn’t believe it. Orson Scott Card is one of my favourite authors. I just had to […]
