What’s up ladies and gentleman! 2014 is coming to a close and we are hoping that 2015 really turns everything around. We have great writers coming on board, and more than enough content to post for your viewing pleasure–but we forgot to mention that we have a new show. These very very important things that slip our minds. For that we apologize for not trafficking it through the appropriate channels, but we hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

 

 

NERDSYNQ

 

 

 

Gotham’s second episode had a great story line that kept my anticipation from last weeks episode pushing forward for the episode next week. The reviews of the episodes will not be as in-depth as the first one was, since it was the first of the series. There might be a little bit of a spoiler in them, but that will be listed if that happens.

Holy Cliffhangers Batman!

Now I am not a connoisseur of DC comics by any means, I mean, I enjoy them. Not as much as the Marvel brand. But I was intrigued by the new fox show coming out this fall. Usually during the first issue, or in this case first episode, the writer tells the origin story of the main character of the book. In the case of Gotham, there was an origin story of about five characters. There was a lot packed into this first episode. This is not just a quick overview of the first episode. Any after this one will be shorter.

Holy Continuation Batman!

Amazing X-Men #4

amazing x-men 4

Being a extremely pessimistic person one would think that i would hate another X-Men title when in actuality it is the exact opposite I love it.  I do not know if it is the nostalgic factor of seeing Nightcrawler back in action or the old school Storm mohawk. Maybe it is seeing Firestar and Iceman together for the first time since the Spiderman and his Amazing Friends days as a kid but I cannot get enough of this book. So much has changed in the X universe lately bringing back Kurt in his classic costume was just what I needed. Just hearing Wolverine say elf takes me back about 15 years so my opinoin maybe biased.Though I will admit the story is not exactly mind blowing just seeing the team literally go through hell has me entertained.

This book takes me back to the Claremont days of X-Men, between the flashbacks and old teammates blending back together seamlessly in the face of impossible odds it is enough to bring in new fans and bring back old ones. I was a little worried when I saw that Jason Aaron was the writer of this series after he serously dropped the ball on the Thanos Rising miniseries. If a writer could make Thanos boring who knows what damage he could do with an entire team but he has done well especially choosing the members of  this particular squad. If the past few years has taught me anything it is that I have not missed Jean Grey as much as I thought and that Kurt is sorely missed in a monthly title. The link between Nightcrawler and the mysterious bamfs is revealed as well as a final battle set up with Azazel.

Infinity # 5

Infinity5

This crossover has become so scrutinized that it has been become underrated.  Infinity is the best crossover of the year hands down, now that is not saying much in a down year for crossovers. Uplifting victories and crushing defeats, epic space battles, and not too mention the son of Thanos that happens to also be an inhuman! What more could people want?! Too often crossovers are like those comedies movies that all the actual funny parts are in the commercials and previews.With Infinity what you see is exactly what you get there is a ton of foreshadowing and not a bunch of surprises. To some that might be a negative but for me its like seeing your thoughts brought to life through the artist hands.

In this issue Thane’s true nature is triggered by the terrigen mist but he’s captured by Ebony Maw. The avengers have saved countless other planets and galaxies from the threat of the Builders but now have to save Earth from Thanos. But not the Avengers are not alone they have the help of their comrades in arms from the battle with the Builders.  I’m looking forward to the conclusion next month and seeing just what Thane can do along with the combined might of the Avengers, the Shiar, and Kree. Overall i give this issue a solid 3.5 out 5.
