There’s only one thing in the universe more awesome than zombies. Zombies with power rings. This year’s big event from DC Comics is the Blackest Night miniseries and its tie-ins. Yes, I know it’s easy to get burned out on big events when they occur far too often and so often fail to live up… Read More Review: Blackest Night #1
The third season of the groundbreaking British science fiction television show Torchwood arrives as a five-part miniseries broadcast across five nights.

Fourteen years after the nuclear apocalypse of Judgment Day when Skynet launched its… Read More Review: Terminator Salvation
