Daredevil Season 3- “Tapestry”

By: John D. Pepe My father told me growing up, on more than one occasion, that “The choices we make dictate our lives.” How true that statement is. That little piece of wisdom has stuck with me my entire life, helping guide my decisions, making me cognizant of the potential outcomes, both good and bad,…

Wonder Con!

  A few weeks ago Rudy, and his daughter Hanna and I got to visit Wonder-Con in Anaheim. This was my first large event and these are some of the pictures from that fun day.     If you are in the area and you want to be part of our live audience we will…

The Executioner’s Redemption

Have I ever told you the tale of Skurge the Executioner? No? Well grab a chair and some hot cocoa and I will tell you about Skurge and how a character with the name like “Skurge the Executioner” could have more in common with you than you think . Of all the things to do…

Punisher-“Revenge or Forgiveness”

By: John D. Pepe I really enjoyed The Punisher Series on Netflix. It was well written and Jon Bernthal truly captured the essence of the Punisher; the best Punisher so far in my opinion. I was enraptured by the series, so much so, that I found myself really rooting for the Punisher. I mean I…

Thor: Ragnarok-“Where Does Asgard Lie?”

By: John D. Pepe Ragnarok in Old Norse means “The Doom of the Gods.” It is essentially, in Norse mythology, the end of the world. Ragnarok is a series of future events in which there is a great battle and the foretelling of the death of major gods and heroes, like Odin, Thor, Tyr, Heimdall,…

Web-elution of Spider-Man #3-The Goldilocks of Spider-Man

By: John D. Pepe I would argue, that from what I have seen so far, both from Civil War and the trailer to Spider-Man: Homecoming, that Tom Holland is the Goldilocks of the three incarnations of Spider-Man. Tobey Maguire #1 (too cold): I like the story in the original and I thought that he was…

“Perfect Teeth”- Captain America: Civil War

Pepe Excerpt from the movie: Tony- “I’m a handful.” (speaking about his relationship with Pepper)…dad was a pain in the ass, but he and mom seemed to make it work.” Cap- “I’m glad Howard got married.

Kith and Kin-Sometimes One In The Same: Guardians, Vol. 2

By: John D. Pepe “Friends are the family we choose for ourselves.” – Novelist Edna Buchanan This quote is strikingly true when it comes to my life. I have many friends that I have known for decades, some almost four. These are the childhood chums that I grew up with. They have become like family…

Daredevil: “Violence, Is It Ever Justified?”

  By: John D. Pepe I had a near fisticuffs about six weeks ago and it made me think of the series Daredevil and our nation’s willingness to embrace violence.  It has been a while since I finished the series but remembering the second season, and the contrast between Daredevil and Punisher’s philosophy of meting…

Comics? Ha! 

  By G.P. Avants   Why do we love comic book heroes? Maybe it’s because their character and spirit have things we can emulate and affect real life. Who wouldn’t want to fly like Superman, shoot webs like Spider-man, or spike up like Wolverine and route out the enemy? Anyone who is reading this blog…

Worn & Torn 

  By G.P. Avants   From my first impression of Logan I observed a tired and weary world. Things have progressed since the last time we have seen Dr. Xavier, Wolverine and the world where humans and mutants co-habitate. Technology has progressed, but the mutants are all but extinct. Oddly, humans have become a distant colder species….

Nothing Stronger than a Father’s Love

by R3 With Marvel and Fox’s next film in the X-Men universe on the horizon, I’d thought that we could take a brief look into the X-23 character that will be featured in the movie Logan. I would be lying if I said that my family is perfect. There are differences, battles and things that…
