ONE PIECE #665 – Watch & Learn

Since it’s always fun to compare/contrast major shonen, I’ve got to reiterate my amusement over Oda’s most likely source of inspiration here. Toriyama watches SUPERMAN II and gets the idea for the Saiyans. Araki catches CHILD’S PLAY, VIDEODROME and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST. Show More Summary

PARASYTE -THE MAXIM- #1 -- Special Review

When I first heard about PARASYTE -THE MAXIM-, I honestly thought there was some mistake. You see, they were making a live action movie based on the exact same 90s manga property so they couldn’t also be making an anime, I reasoned incorrectly, and besides – that trailer for the movie didn’t even look hat good.

ONE PIECE Ch. 762 Review

To understand why something is broken, you need to know why it fell to pieces. Trafalgar Law's long hidden pain is finally revealed. The Good Even the Red Wedding didn't have a body count like this.

TERRA FORMARS #1 -- Special Review

For the record, this totally sounds like the title of some Asylum release that’s meant to confuse distracted TRANSFORMERS fans into buying a cheap knock-off from Target's bargain bin. Like, this is the next generation re-brand/reboot of TRANSMORPHERS. Show More Summary

ONE PIECE #664 -- Special Review

ONE PIECE Z -- DVD/Blu-Ray Review

At a certain point, it feels like you’re watching pins getting lined up for a half-hour, just so a bowling ball can knock them over in another half-hour...
