  7. Take an Inside Look at Powers, the Superhero Police Procedural That’s Finally Becoming a Show

    Coming soon to a Playstation near you.

    Powers has been on the road to becoming a live action television adaptation since before Iron Man was a twinkle in Kevin Feige's eye, and it's great to see it finally make it to screens.

In fact, I think we can safely upgrade it from interesting to exciting!

  12. Review: Image Comics’ Secret Identities #1

    It's worth checking out for yourself.

    It’s always preferable when a work evokes passion from its reader, be it from love or hatred. Tepidity, on the other hand, is the earned reaction when a work lacks any real punch.
